2009 on The Time Machine - Part One
Daphne Matsumoto and Michael McCartney rang in the new year and the new decade with songs that got the most airplay on The Time Machine during 2009. Summer Blue and Jenny Leong served as producers keeping the shave ice coming into the studio. This Maui afternoon FM broadcast includes the Grammy nominated Maui artist Amy Hanaiali'i and her duet with John Cruz covering George Harrison's "What Is Life". The entire Time Machine Crew has their fingers crossed for Amy's chance to take home a Grammy for Best Hawaiian Album this January 31st, 2010. Susanna Hoffs and Matthew Sweet returned to The Time Machine with heavy airplay in 2009 with their second album release "Under The Covers: Volume Two" which also featured a George Harrison cover. The duo also brought along Dhani Harrison to perform on his Dad's song "Beware Of Darkness". Other gifted talented artists featured on this aircheck include; Anya Marina, Miles Nielsen, Schuyler Fisk, Brandi Carlile, The Smith Bros., The Singles, U2, The Backsliders, Owl City, Tinted Windows, Rhett Miller, The Throwdowns, Rachael Yamagata and Brian Ray.
Rocker and singer-songwriter Brian Ray returned to The Time Machine a few months ago and was not only our guest DJ but also permitted us to play his upcoming album "This Way Up" as a world broadcast debut on the FM dial and online. In addition to performing a couple of his songs live on the air, Brian also let us play his new song "I Found You" that included an absolute killer rock instrumental break. He explained that he something in store for last weekend's halftime show between the Miami Dolphins and Houston Texans.
The Time Machine's Summer Blue, Michael McCartney, Jenny Leong and Daphne Matsumoto have been gabbing about this on the radio all week long and now you can see it for yourself!
Brian arranged and produced a tribute to Les Paul featuring Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen and Orianthi from Michael Jackson's band. Brian stated about his guitar partners on stage, "He's a god, she's reDUNKulous!" Add in the 100 kids on guitars for Gibson Foundation's Music In Schools program and you have got an amazing guitar performance.
Are you ready for this? Seriously? Are you ready? Set your volume to ten or at least snap on a headset if you can't blast this video around others.
