Rob Schneider and Bari Leigh Interviews on The Time Machine
Actor and comedian Rob Schneider was a guest on The Time Machine this past week. Rob was on Maui for a comedy concert in Lahaina at the Maui Celebrity Series hosted by Brian Evans. The Maui Celebrity Series is now up to eight performances. If you're a Maui resident or planning a future visit to Lahaina, make sure to check out the link below for the Maui Celebrity Series' upcoming live performances. Rob discussed his latest comedy album "Repeat Offender" and some of the tracks were featured on the broadcast. Radio host Michael McCartney taught Rob before the broadcast about a regional pidgin slang that Rob had never been aware of before. Rob's been to Hawaii a number of times during his life and was only familiar with the pidgin slang "Brah" often heard in short sentences like "Howzit Brah!". Michael wasn't sure if it was just a Maui slang but he shared "Shoots Brah!" with Rob who thought it was funny enough to incorporate into his concert act in front of the Hawaii audience. The Time Machine's Executive Producer Jenny Leong was convinced that Michael may have oversold it on the air but she couldn't stop laughing when Rob said it from stage several times. Rob Schneider owned the audience like a rock icon. If Rob comes to your town on his comedy tour be sure to see him.
Singer-songwriter Bari Leigh was also a guest on the program. Her debut EP is filled with strong songs that sound great blasting over the FM dial and make great car cruising music. Joining in the musical fun are collaborators Mike Ruekberg, Willie Wisely and John Fields who are no strangers to The Time Machine's playlist over the years along with Andy Thompson, Kristin Mooney and Chris Heinrich. Bari shared with the radio audience the various stories behind her catchy songs. Bari is an artist that is ready to share her craft with the world since she began writing songs at age seven in Darnestown, Maryland. As a teenager, she found her voice and her life’s passion. Bari’s music has been described as a slant of country, infused with pop and heartfelt soul.
In addition to Rob Schneider and Bari Leigh, brand new songs from Gary U.S. Bonds and Left On Red are also featured. Other artists heard on this Maui afternoon FM radio broadcast include; Nelson Bragg, Rachael Yamagata, Julian Lennon, Puffy AmiYumi, Tom Petty, Beatles, The Smith Bros., Old 97's, Klaatu, Lee Cataluna & Tony Gillis, Hanson and Bon Jovi.
