    Brian Ray Performance and Interview on The Time Machine

    Rocker and singer-songwriter Brian Ray was our guest DJ on The Time Machine this past month. Not only did he spin some cool songs from a variety of artists while sitting in for Summer Blue (who was having a well deserved vacation in China), he also brought along a guitar to perform a couple of songs on the air. Bassist Rich Ray joined the musical festivities.

    Since the release of Brian's first solo debut album "Mondo Magneto" back in 2006, we've been spinning his rocker "Vinyl" in heavy rotation. We've played it so much on the radio that it's sort of become The Time Machine's unofficial theme song. We may have actually started playing the song back in 2005...but that will be our little secret.

    Brian performed a stripped down acoustic version of "Vinyl" for the broadcast in addition to performing a song titled "I Found You" from his upcoming album "This Way Up".

    Brian also played a few of his new songs from his forthcoming release that are pure pop bliss. Those songs made their worldwide broadcast debut which is a treat for us since Brian just got off a monster tour playing both guitar and bass for Paul McCartney.

    In addition to playing some cool tunes from Paul McCartney, Brian also played some classics from The Beatles on the radio show. He also featured brand new music from Harper Simon (Paul Simon's son) and MGMT.

    As guest DJ, Brian also brought wonderful music to the radio show from his former boss and musical legend, Etta James, along with artists as diverse as Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Badfinger, Smokey Robinson, Wings, The Bangles, Lewis Taylor, John Lennon, Conrad Korsch, George Harrison, Them with Van Morrison, The Beach Boys, Ringo Starr, and Shakira. Summer Blue's radio co-host, Michael McCartney, added to the music mix with the latest from Brian's band mate in Paul McCartney's band, guitarist Rusty Anderson. Rusty's song "Julia Roberts" was featured along with songs from Jeff Lynne, The Smith Bros., Heart and Rachael Yamagata.
