The Academy Award nominated artist recently got together with guitarist Mark Goldenberg who produced a beautiful arrangement of Stephen performing their dear friend Andrew Gold's classic song "Thank You For Being A Friend". The Time Machine Crew were extremely honored that Leslie Gold let us share the song on the radio for the past five months.

Rocker and singer-songwriter Chris Richards of Chris Richards and The Subtractions was a recent guest on The Time Machine. 2012 was a year that not only yielded another great rock album from the band titled "Get Your La La's Out" but the group also offered up a free end of the year covers EP called "That Covers That 2- Electric Boogaloo". The free digital download on Bandcamp follows the path of the their first covers EP but this time around Cheap Trick, The Who, Ace Frehley, The Cavedogs and The Kinks get the Subtractions treatment.

Rocker and singer-songwriter Rob Bonfiglio has been very busy lately with Wanderlust's reunion album "Record Time" and producing the album "Dedicated" for Wilson Phillips, it's a wonder that Rob was able to release one of his own albums at the end of 2012 right after a Christmas single (released on a 45 RPM no less). One of the most played albums on the air from 2008 was Rob's album "Bring On The Happy", so The Time Machine has been looking forward to playing his latest batch of songs from his brand new album "Mea Culpa". Rob is no stranger to our playlists. Since the turn of the century, Rob's music has filled the Maui airwaves as a solo artist, a member of The Better Days, The Skies Of America and Superstone (the brainchild of rocker Ken Sharp). Rob's musical career goes further back into the 90's as a member of the RCA label band Wanderlust and his recent musical output has been featured on the soundtracks of motion pictures. The Time Machine crew were quite happy to have Rob return as a guest to the program. Rob discussed his latest album and shared some insight on some of his songs with the radio audience.

Throughout the nineties and the turn of the century, Willie Kahaiali’i redefined the music scene in Hawaii. Willie was a guest on The Time Machine last year and shared his thoughts behind his latest blues masterpiece "Warehouse Blues".

The band members on "Warehouse Blues" are some of Maui's finest musicians; Jerry Byers on bass guitar, Kris Thomas on drums, percussionist Mio "Timbolero" Flores and Tam Sugayan on congas. Playing the killer electric guitar on "Nasty Thing" is Avi Ronen who is featured as a special guest musician on the album along with Howard Eisenberg on saxophone and Sam Ahia, Sr. performs the jazz guitar on "Lonely Man". While Willie bent those guitar strings and sang his heart out, Jesse Alpuro and Nick Fournier engineered the album.
