    Everything I Need To Know I Learned From The Ed and Greg Show



    "The Ed and Greg Show" has been spicing up Maui mornings on WILD 105.5 FM. The KPMW studios finds the Maui Time Weekly's Restless Native a.k.a. Starr Begley dropping by every Monday morning. Starr finally had the nerve to publish her weekly experience at the cost of losing her paycheck. The column below is from the May 22, 2008 issue of Maui Time Weekly.




    Unless I totally suck at math – actually I kind of do – this past Monday has marked my 10th month on Wild 105.5's The Ed & Greg Show. In my humble and biased opinion, The Ed & Greg Show is the best damn morning show on the island.

    Wild 105.5 is an independently run station in no way affiliated with the giant Pacific Radio Group. Not that I don't listen to PRG stations, because I do. In fact, if I were a dude, I'm pretty sure that I'd have a thing for Nikki D, who is totally awesome and should really come over one night to play cards and eat boiled peanuts. By the way, Nikki, you need to team up with your co-host Mackie and impose a hostile takeover against Trance. What is this, the Yakuza? Strength in numbers, girlfriend, strength in numbers.

    But when the Zoo Crew is busy pushing lawnmowers up Dairy Road, pretending to be homosexual Indians, making Nikki wear a bikini in the freezing cold or dressing Mackie in an elf costume , we on The Ed and Greg Show are busy talking about real Maui issues like skanky first graders, drug addled parents, using Photoshop to make your kids cuter than they are, hunting ghosts in Waikapu, why it's better to let your teenage daughter get pregnant rather than hand her a condom, gambling and why I love it, why we're cool with Kendall Grove admitting to smoking pot and being a role-model to our kids, how neither Ed or Greg has ever smoked a bowl in their life, the difference between a "moke" and a "local", boobs – small boobs, big boobs, saggy boobs, fake boobs, pierced boobs–how to purchase a butt-plug for your husband, the environment, politics, what a narrow-minded conservative Greg is, how ignorant I am, how it's humanly possibly for Ed to be such a complete arse when it comes to MMA fighting, how unfortunate it is that men who kick off their slippers and shout, "What faka, like go?" in parking lots turn me on, the rise and fall of the stripper pole in my house, how it makes me homicidal and pissy to be called "girly girl," wrestling and how fake-yet-awesome it is, haoles, how Oprah is definitely the anti-Christ and how Google is planning world domination.

    On my very first segment (I appear on the show every Monday at 10 a.m.), I was scared out of my mind. In fact, I'm pretty sure that I suffered intestinal upset from the stress. To make matters worse, Ed and Greg immediately went off on Holoholo Girl (my supervisor at the time)–who was listening to the show .

    I totally got busted for it when I got back to the office. But I've kept going back week after week and I think that the three of us have gelled and bounce insults off of each other quite nicely. Either that or I've just gotten used to making an ass of myself on air. Probably the latter.

    *Starr Begley just went and upset everybody again. MTW



    Our own member of The Time Machine Crew, producer Ashley Starr, was a guest on The Ed and Greg Show for their weekly segment "Women's Perspective". You can listen to Ashley defend herself against Ed and Greg in the episode below. Joining in the conversation is DJ Carlos. Manning the air console is Mr. Ready and Ryan P.

    Second Album From Courtney Jaye To Be Released




    Singer-songwriter Courtney Jaye, frequest radio guest on The Time Machine, drops by with some exciting news.

    IT’S OFFICIALLY OFFICIAL...

    Well my dears...

    It looks as if I have signed another record deal.

    And would you believe?

    It's with another major label.

    ...huh??????

    Whoa...I didn't see THAT one coming...

    But something is different about this record folks.

    What is different you might ask?

    Well let me elaborate...

    For one, I wrote the songs (thanks Thad and K. Hall) / made the record (thanks seth k.) / mixed the record (thanks Joe P.) / took the photos (thanks Casal) / had the artwork done (thanks Graphic Therapy) / found the band (thanks members of "The Aloha Honor System")...and I did all of this before I signed. Yep, I reckon that's the key here ladies and gents. I did the creative work, got the record to where it pleased me and only me, and what happened? Seems I finally made the record I have dreamed of making for years. And wow, does THAT feel like an enormous musical weight has been lifted off of my teeny-tiny little shoulders...I can finally breathe again.

    Second, it's with a great label...Universal Republic to be exact (Amy Winehouse, Jack Johnson, Mika, Colbie Caillat)...and obviously, these folks have done a great job with letting their artists be who they are (wow...what a brilliant concept!), and I really think THAT is the difference here...something that major labels are not usually known for...but U Republic does it, and they seem to be doing it rather well...I am one of the first artists to comprise a division of U Republic called Republic South...sort of Amy Winehouse and Jack Johnson go to Nashville...perfect, cuz I reckon that kinda describe's the record I just made...





    Now what is next you ask?

    Well now I get to make my first video for the song "Sweet Ride"...will be leaving for Kauai, Hawaii in two weeks to film with a great director named Piper Ferguson. she's killer and I'm really excited to work with her and all of the horses at Silver Falls Ranch (to be continued)...

    But today, in this now moment, Memorial Day 2008, I am currently in the studio with my dear friend Peter Hayes, of the band Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, as we have been hard at work recording 2 acoustic songs...one is a song of Peter's called "Toll", and the other is a cover of the Hank Williams tune "Cool Water". Makes me want to make an acoustic record next...ahhh, the simplicity....if Peter lets me, maybe I'll post a song in a few days...

    Ok, well I have been listening to the new A.A. Bondy record NONSTOP (it's called "American Hearts"), along with the new My Morning Jacket "Evil Urges" (it's bloody ridiculous), She and Him (thanks steve:), "Beach Samba" by Astrud Gilberto, and The Incredible String Band's self titled first record - it's crazy psychedelic madness...

    Hope you all are having a beautiful holiday and I hope to see you out there on the road soon...

    all of my love...

    Great news to hear of the new distribution deal and "cherry" that the new music video will be shot here in Hawaii!

    Must say that She and Him's album has been one of the most satisfying releases this year so far! Can't get enough of it. Check out the new "Loose Ends" EP from Rachael Yamagata that came out last week. You will cry your eyes out.

    Congrats as Republic South's first artist!!!

    Much Aloha,

    :=)



    Courtney's music has had a home on our playlists and in our hearts since her debut release. Be sure to pick up a copy of her first album, "Traveling Light" and keep an eye peeled out for CJ's upcoming release "Queen Of Sabotage" and cross your fingers for a future Silverwings release. Her song "Don't Tell A Girl" has been receiving heavy airplay since last December. We've also been playing "Are You With Me?" quite a bit this past year and it's available at iTunes. You can also get a sampling of what she's been up to lately (including both "Til It Bleeds" and "The Sweetest Tune" which are getting some positive response from our radio listeners on the studio lines) at her website:

    Keith LeVoy Interview on The Time Machine


    As we present another FM aircheck today, we have to honor those who have lost their lives in defending America's love for freedom on this Memorial Day. The Time Machine's Mike Mantel shares his feelings on this Memorial Day weekend.




    "I would like everyone to be careful not to turn Memorial Day into another Veterans Day. I can see this slowly happening as each year passes. I am a veteran and it seems I get more attention on Memorial Day than I do on Veterans Day. That truly saddens me."

    "Memorial Day is for those who gave all. We need to keep it that way, otherwise their sacrifice will be in vain."

    This Maui radio afternoon aircheck features an interview with singer-songwriter Keith LeVoy and his song "For Your Time".

    Another Voggy Day In Paradise



    Kīlauea is an active volcano in the Hawaiian Islands, one of five shield volcanoes that together form the Island of Hawaii. In Hawaiian, the word kīlauea means "spewing" or "much spreading", in reference to the mountain's frequent outpouring of lava. Issuing lava continuously since January 1983, Kīlauea is currently the most active volcano on the planet, an invaluable resource for volcanologists, and also the planet's most visited active volcano. Kīlauea is the most recent of a series of volcanoes that have created the Hawaiian Archipelago, as the Pacific Plate has moved and is moving over the Hawaii hotspot (see Lō'ihi Seamount). The plate under Kilauea, crosses over a hotspot of land which causes them to crash together and therefore errupt.


    Every now and then, volcanic ash ends in the air and can often cover the entire island chain with "vog" which has a look and feel of smog and sometimes fog. It can be a health risk if the the vog is thick. The following FM aircheck has a health warning issued on the airwaves of Maui which is the closest island to the volcanic activity of the "big island" of Hawaii. The warning could be familiar to those who live in cities that issue smog alerts.



    For a live panorama of the Pu`u `O`o vent at Kilauea Volcano you can go to this website:


    http://hvo.wr.usgs.gov/cam/



    Click here to listen to "Another Voggy Day In Paradise"





    The month of May had quite a share of vog in the air for Hawaii. Artists heard on this afternoon broadcast include; Miggs, The Weepies, Roy Orbison, The Monkees, Paul McCartney, The Cars, Ludo, Boz Scaggs, Simon and Garfunkel, REO Speedwagon, Katy Perry, Fall Out Boy with John Mayer, Jane Wiedlin, David Ford, Neil Diamond, The Ting Tings, Shake Some Action, Electric Light Orchestra, Harry Nilsson, Eddie Money, Mudcrutch and a rarely heard unreleased gem from the "London Town" sessions from Wings.

    Rachael Yamagata Releases New EP "Loose Ends" - New Album Set For October Release On Warner Brothers



    Singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata (and frequest radio guest on The Time Machine) has some exciting news to share today.

    EP RELEASE "LOOSE ENDS"....

    Dear Patient Pollyanna Partners,

    News news news! I've just signed with Warner Bros Records and we are working overtime to get all ducks in a row for an early October release! Thank you for hanging with me all this time – it's been a long road of red tape trails, but I'm very excited about the new team of peeps and I can finally say that we are on our way!

    I am pleased to say there is a little something available for your listening pleasure – an ep. The "L Word" was kind enough to premiere one of the songs a few weeks back ("The Other Side"). We heard you were looking, and lord knows you've been waiting for a record, so while I work on getting that out, I've put three songs up to tide you over. They are not "happy" per se (I do stay true to my roots), but they do feature some beautiful strings and my old friend, the piano. There is a link on myspace, or you may go directly here www.rachaelyamagata.com/store

    So for those of you heading for heartbreak, here is some tonic. Add vodka or gin, a candle, some headphones and please enjoy.

    Rachael Yamagata and Sara Bareilles - Tour Comes To An End...



    Singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata finishes up her musical tour with Sara Bareilles and shares with us the final leg of the tour.

    April 23, 2008

    New York New York New York…April 23rd

    Hello Irving Plaza. Hello parents, brother, auntie, uncle, friends. It's always bittersweet to play a "hometown" show when in the midst of a run, cuz I find myself wanting to escape to clean showers and home cooked meals and not understanding why at the end of the night everyone is leaving and I'm crawling back into a drivable bed. Home life, road life, adult life, childhood. How does one merge any of them when you mix in location displacement and time flux capacitors and all you really want to do is forget you know anyone and be that mysterious person that you "really" are/never will be. Ahem.

    Anyways, headspace aside, we had a really good time last night. A bit of a feisty crowd of course, but we expected it. This is after all New York and in such a place you cannot offer up a typical dish and sustain anyone's interest. Fortunately for us, we are mostly dysfunctional rather than typical. And so it went. You all hushed beautifully for "Elephants" and cheered us on through the new and old songs. We love you for that.

    And now we take on the Lincoln Tunnel – not so easy to do (are we a truck, a car, a bus?)… It's early morning and we are off to Philly, my current hometown. After that, D.C. where I grew up. I'm realizing that I move a lot and after a while all places become hometowns. Which means I will always be uncomfortable, disoriented, and at home most of the time. Oh look, light at the end of the tunnel…hahahahahhahhaha..xox



    April 24 thru 29, 2008

    Philly, D.C., Charlotte…

    Ok, so maybe things are starting to blur.. It always happens that you finally get in the mode of things and then you are upon the final show. We've settled into it all and the crowds are continually fantastic. After hour bars have been attended and showers have been found at every hour of the day. Philly gave a warm welcome especially to the hometown Giraldi and then we crashed at the apartment and did a lot of sleeping. Our three days off were full of laundry, emails, and a few rounds out to celebrate Dan's (bass guru) birthday. On to D.C., another hometown, where band was in good form and it may have been the most fun I've had playing so far. Dad was there and I did my first shot of Jack with him so it was a right of passage for me. Note to self to eat dinner before drinks next time because by the end I apparently bit some ears and slapped some booties. All in the name of love, of course. Last night was Charlotte which was a very nice surprise because the crowd was on fire. I think I could have said "blue", or "cute babies" or "running socks" and they would've have cheered. They sang along and boosted my energy and it's a blessing to know there are still people out there who remember my music. We ended the night with a Brits vs. USA game of pool when we took on David Ford and Joe. We won and lost appropriately and at some point found a U SUCK/ WE RULE sign on the RV…There was a British Flag on it so we think we have an idea of who's to blame. Tonight is Atlanta and then a final 15 hour drive to New York where we play the Tribeca Film Fest. I am exhausted and invigorated and want nothing more than to start it all over again, while also crawling into my own bed at home. A continual Mind Fu$@& this life is. In three days I'll be doing laundry again and watching Clean House marathons, filing paper napkin emails and numbers and packing up to figure out my next home for the year. It's moving time again. The album is ready and waiting and we'll figure that out too and the new rounds of touring will be planned... Alas, it goes on and on and on. No time to think to much today. There are showers to be had and load in is in one hour. Hello Atlanta.

    Xox
    r



    April 30, 2008

    Atlanta…

    Oh Atlanta you did us right. On the whole we had a great show save for the random bored preteen that I think we either scared or shocked, or well...just bored. Ah, to win over an audience that has never seen, heard or known of you before. We worked it, it worked, we love us some Georgia fans.

    Pre show was a beautiful sight as we sat in lawn chairs outside the rv sneaking a beer or two and enticing some of the 7 stray cats the venue looks after to visit. Automatic A plus in my book. A place that cares for kitties – I'll play your room forever (if you'll have me of course), and I'll bring some Friskies with me.

    We also continued to battle with David and Joe – our Britwits. The rivalry started the night before after a game of pool and by the end of last night we had soaped their car in various phrases such as "USA rules" and "I love unicorns"...things like that. After our set we came out to find the rv papered with various spreads in Playboy and as a final send off discovered the cans they filled the tire bays with. Thanks boys. We will get you back.

    Bareilles and crew and the rest of us had a late night soiree in the dressing room and properly toasted the end of a fantastic tour. Can I just say she is the most gracious and lovely, spastic and talented spitfire of a gal. She can sing like a muthaf*%^$ and has some pretty badass dance moves to beat. We were in stitches over last night's antics, but we'll keep a few to ourselves. They gave me a killer pink RV birdfeeder that is so the perfect gift. Thank you to all of you. You are new beautiful friends and we had a blast.

    And now we are a travelin to the big apple for a final show at the Tribeca Film Festival. Gorgonzola says his tour depression is already setting in. It will be a quick 2 days I think and then all will be unsettlingly (Is that a word?) finished. Eek...

    We had a great time of this run and for anyone who is reading this - thank you for being such lovely fans. We will see you soon…..xoxoxo


    p.s...I had just finished this and put my computer away when our tour manager yells out that we were passing David and Joe on the highway. We mooned them. Got ya back.x

    Clean showers and home cooked meals...what a concept.

    Holy smoke...a shot of Jack Daniels with Dad. I never had the chance with my Dad so that's something that you will never forget. I did however find myself with both my Mom and Dad at two thirty in the morning watching "The Revenge Of The Nerds" on cable which may be as surreal as tanking down alcohol with the parental unit.

    Be sure to sneak in a flick while at Tribeca. We won't tell anyone

    One last minute post from Rachael today.
