    Ian Lloyd Interview on The Time Machine

    Rocker Ian Lloyd was a guest on The Time Machine last week. From the band Stories that gave the seventies one of the coolest radio hits ("Brother Louie") to his solo career and numerous projects including Social Hero, Ian had never recorded a Christmas song. The Maui FM dial was treated to the first official Christmas song of the season (And a week before Halloween - a first for The Time Machine). In addition to sharing the new rocking yuletide song "Everybody's Happy 'Cause It's Christmas Time", Ian also discussed his musical career.

    Brand new songs were also featured from Vinnie Zummo ("Didn't Get The Memo"), Tam Duong ("In The Elevator"), John Hunter Phillips (Dennis, Carl, Alan, Brian, Bruce and Mike") Strangefinger ("I Feel Fine") plus Sara Bareilles, The Wellingtons, Michelle Branch and The Outfield. Other artists featured on this Maui afternoon FM radio aircheck include; The Pendletons, Jack Johnson, The Donnas, Bo Donaldson & The Heywoods, Pez Band, Dion and Social Hero. Since most of The Time Machine's airchecks over the last few decades were courtesy of TDK and Maxell, it was only proper to include Ian Lloyd's appearance in the TDK advertisement seen above.

    Aaron Yeger Interview on The Time Machine

    Director Aaron Yeger was a guest on The Time Machine today. Aaron is in town for the United States film premiere of his documentary "A People Uncounted" at the Hawaii International Film Festival. It debuted last Friday evening and will have another screening on this Wednesday at 4PM at Honolulu's Regal Dole Cannery Stadium 18 Theatres & IMAX. This year’s festival includes 212 films from 43 countries.

    The feature documentary with Nuance Pictures and Urbinder Documentaries is about the genocide of the Romani people during the Holocaust and their continuing marginalization and persecution in present day. This year at the Hawaii International Film Festival, the documentary has been nominated for the Halekulani Golden Orchid Award for Documentary Feature. The Roma have endured centuries of intolerance and persecution in Europe, most notably during the Holocaust, when an estimated 500,000 or more were murdered. "A People Uncounted" documents their culturally rich yet often difficult lives, and demonstrates how their present state has been deeply shaped by the tragedies of the past.

    This is the first feature-length film for director Aaron Yeger, producers Marc Swenker and Tom Rasky, and executive producer Lenny Binder. The film grew from a conversation between Rasky and Binder, both children of Holocaust survivors and their mutual friend, award-winning Romani musician Robi Botos, who went on to score the film. The film is edited by A.C.E. award-winning documentary filmmaker Kurt Engfehr (Fahrenheit 911, Bowling for Columbine).

    Filmed in 11 countries and featuring dozens of Roma—including Holocaust survivors, historians, activists and musicians—A People Uncounted brings the Romani history to life through the rich interplay of their poetry, music, and compelling first-hand accounts. As ethnic intolerance flares up once again across Europe, "A People Uncounted" sheds light on this unique culture while placing the Romani story within the larger context of the world’s legacy of racism and genocide.

    Aaron Yeger also discussed his upcoming projects including the role of co-director with Marc Swenker for "Chasing the King", a feature documentary about Chuck Berry and a quest for the real King of Rock and Roll, as well as a producer of "Fantastico!" a feature documentary about the rise of new Canadian fashion icon Bruno Ierullo.

    Aaron Yeger graduated from Ryerson University's School of Image Arts with a specialization in Film Production, where he received a number of awards including the Norman Jewison Filmmaker Award, the Harvey Hart Award for Directing, the J. L. Beaton Award for academic distinction, and two Universal Studios Scholarships in Filmmaking. The Time Machine Crew were honored to have a film maker of Aaron's caliber on the broadcast.

    New music heard on this Maui afternoon FM broadcast features artists Sarina Paris, Mike Viola and Rachael Yamagata.

    Rachael Yamagata Comes With Tales From "Chesapeake" On The Time Machine

    Singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata returned to The Time Machine with her self released album "Chesapeake". She put together her dream team of musicians for her third record. The band included Victor Indrizzo, Mike Viola, Michael Chaves, Kevin Salem, Tom Freund and Oli Kraus. John Alagia returned as producer to capture it all and the magic on this album is heard from beginning to end.

    The Time Machine

    The Time Machine

    It's always a treat for The Time Machine Radio Crew to have Rachael on the broadcast as a guest. Rachael's vocals have graced Maui's FM dial for years as she continued to keep busy between each of her albums by co-writing and singing on albums of other artists. The list is long and varied; Duncan Sheik, Ryan Adams & The Cardinals, Robin Danar, Mike Viola, Margaret Cho, Toots & The Maytals, Ben Lee, Graham Colton, Katherine McPhee, Rhett Miller, John Francis, Jill Cunniff, Dan Wilson, Bill Deasey, Ray LaMontagne, Chris Holmes, Ben Arthur, Jason Mraz, Bright Eyes and Mandy Moore...with so many music projects outside of her own, it appears that she will continue to be on our playlists for years to come (and hopefully we'll get a chance to hear her unreleased EP with Mike Viola of which three of the songs on the new album were originally written for).

    The Time Machine

    Her debut release "Happenstance" produced by John Alagia kept pulling in our listeners and locking her status as "most played artist" right up until the end of 2007. Perfect timing for us because her sophomore double album release "Elephants...Teeth Sinking Into Heart" was released in 2008. That album was produced by Mike Mogis (with a couple of songs produced by John Alagia) and it was an album worth the wait filled with many talented musicians like Kevin Salem, Michael Chaves, Daniel Clarke and Mark Goldenberg adding their musical gifts to the project.

    The Time Machine

    Rachael'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, "Happenstance" and her second, "Elephants...Teeth Sinking Into Heart". Rachael currently topped our airplay chart for 2010 with her song with Semisonic's Dan Wilson, "You Take My Troubles Away" and closed out the year with her yuletide song, "Baby Come Find Me At Christmas". This past year, "I'm Going To Go Back There Someday", Rachael's cover of the classic song from The Muppets where Gonzo sang around a campfire in 1979's "The Muppet Movie" has been embraced by The Time Machine staff and listeners to make it one of the most played songs of the year. The song saw its official release on Disney's tribute album "The Muppets: The Green Album" on August 23rd in preparation for Disney's November release of the Jason Segel film "The Muppet Movie". Other artists featured along with Rachael include; Weezer & Paramore’s Hayley Williams, OK Go, Sondre Lerche, Andrew Bird, Matt Nathanson, The Fray and My Morning Jacket.

    The Time Machine

    Rachael's work with Ben Arthur and John Francis are featured on the broadcast. New music also featured on this aircheck include three wonderful covers from Maxi Dunn & Marty Rudnick with "Walk Right In", "Sweet And Tender Romance" from The Bangles and Joe Algeri & Maria Sokratis performing "Jackson". The new song "Keep Me Holding On" from The Wellingtons continues to garner airplay. Other artists heard on this Maui afternoon FM broadcast include; Elvis Costello, Margaret Cho, Blondie, Katherine McPhee, The Smith Bros., Foster The People, Parker McGee, Wilco and John Alagia.
