    The Dukes Of Surf Interview on The Time Machine - Aloha Christmas





    JP, Lee and Fish have been filling up The Time Machine's playlist on the FM dial for over a year as the sunny Aloha rock trio The Dukes of Surf. The harmonies that would make Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys proud have been a breath of fresh air on the Hawaiian airwaves and have been enjoying success in Japan as well. This Christmas season, as a way of giving back to the community, The Dukes of Surf have released their original song "Aloha Christmas" on iTunes with the proceeds of the single going to benefit Hawai‘i Children’s Cancer Foundation. The catchy lyrics and enticing, seasonal melody of “Aloha Christmas” will be sure to warm the hearts of those who dream of escaping to the balmy, sun-kissed shores of Hawai‘i as well as Kamaʻāina celebrating their own holiday here in paradise. The Dukes of Surf’s first single, “Waikiki”, launched last year and hovered near top of Japanese Billboard charts for seven weeks and the group also appeared on the 2014 Grammy Pop Art ballot. JP from the band was a guest on The Time Machine and the entire radio staff were honored to have him on the broadcast.


    Brand new music for the holidays was also featured on this Maui afternoon FM broadcast from Alicia Witt, Timmy Sean, Wyatt Funderburk and songs from Christmas past from Second Saturday and Jeffrey Foskett Also heard on this radio program were the latest songs from Benna McCartney, Cliff Richard, Mike Viola and Secret Friend plus Earth, Wind & Fire, The Smith Bros. and Frankie & The Knockouts.

    Alicia Witt Launches Christmas Radio Programming in Hawaii with New Single, Adam Waltermire Unveils A Pop Garden Christmas AND Radio Music Challenge Accepted on The Time Machine





    Singer-songwriter Alicia Witt returned to The Time Machine to kick off the world broadcast debut of her latest holiday song, "I'm Not Ready For Christmas". The previous two Christmas seasons on the Maui FM airwaves featured her first Christmas single covering the classic "Santa Baby" with an arrangement that was welcomed by island listeners. The subject matter of her new song "I'm Not Ready For Christmas" was the perfect song to launch our Christmas programming on the radio dial. Considering that we do our best as radio programmers to hold back until December to spin Christmas songs, we are well aware that other radio stations around the country start as early as October (a few even begin in Septemeber), the lyrical content of Alicia Witt's song was the perfect tune to actually break our radio format rule for decades and begin playing Christmas songs before Thanksgiving. She brought her song to life in the studio with fellow musicians Michael Bradford (bass and guitar), Rayford Griffin (drums and percussion) and Ben Folds (glockenspiel, bells and additional vocals). Michael Bradford also produced the song with Joe Costa as mixer and additional production by Ben Folds. Both the original naughty version and the "clean" version can be purchased at her website and on Bandcamp.com. The Time Machine Crew were honored to have Alicia kick off our Christmas programming. Previous artists in the past that have started off our holiday programming include Rachael Yamagata, Kelly Jones, Mandy Moore, Mike Viola, Amy Grant, Bleu, Rob Bonfiglio, Maple Mars and Wilson Phillips.


    Alicia refers to her single as her new un-Christmas song, which is ironic, considering that her last three film projects as an actress were all Christmas flicks. Although we featured her songs in heavy rotation this past year including "Do It" and her duet with Ben Folds titled "You Can Go Home", Alicia was spending most of this past year pretending that it was Christmas. Her first film for the holidays debuted in November on The Hallmark Channel. The television movie "A Very Merry Mix-Up" became the third highest rated film in the network's history and repeated viewings continue until the end of the year. Alicia Witt will be in theaters nationwide on December 13th in "Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas" and her third Christmas film "A Snow Globe Christmas" debuts the following day, December 14th on the Lifetime Network, as she stars opposite Donald Faison and Christina Milian. A perfect movie for a Saturday night. It will air a few more times throughout the month of December. Meanwhile, Alicia is busy working in the story arc of the upcoming fifth season of "Justified" on the FX Network. Season premiere is January 7th, 2014.



    The Time Machine



    Adding to the Christmas spirit on the FM broadcast was return guest Adam Waltemire with his Florida radio show's latest album release, "A Pop Garden Christmas". Adam shared his thoughts behind the Christmas project and featured songs from a wide variety of talented artists including Twenty Cent Crush, Timmy Sean, Lannie Flowers, Ruby Free and Lisa Mychols. "A Pop Garden Christmas" can also be found on Bandcamp.com.



    The Time Machine



    Back in September, Monster Of Lite Rock's founder Andrew Curry, was a guest on the program discussing the vinyl release of "Drink A Toast To Innocence: A Tribute To Lite Rock". During the on on-air conversation between Andrew and radio host Michael McCartney, Michael pointed out that on both the vinyl and the double album CD, that not a single musical act chose to record the 1980 classic Dan Fogelberg song "Same Old Lang Syne" which inspired the tribute album's title. The single became a top ten hit for the late Dan Fogelberg and the following year was included on his album "The Innocent Age". Although the song is timeless and can be listened to anytime of the year, over the last three decades, radio has decided to play it during the Christmas and New Year's holidays. This song was aching to be a part of the successful album tribute to Lite Rock but unfortunately nobody opted to record their arrangement. Michael decided during the interview to make an announcement that if any musician wanted to tackle the song, that it would be featured on the air this Christmas season. Andrew also added that it would be featured on the Monsters Of Lite Rock Facebook page. The Time Machine Crew are glad to announce that we have received a submission from Cara Maria O'Shea & Royce Peterson. The two musicians decided to arrange the song as a duet. As promised, it was featured on the Monsters Of Lite Rock Facebook page and made it's broadcast debut. Both Cara Maria and Royce were guests on the program sharing how they came up with their arrangement.


    The Time Machine Crew is still accepting submissions from musical artists covering Dan Fogelberg's "Same Old Lang Syne". Submit your recording and arrangement to TheTimeMachine@yahoo.com. Perhaps there could be a future version coming from Alicia Witt and Ben Folds. That would be a cool musical gift.


    Other artists heard on this Maui afternoon FM aircheck include Mike Viola & Kelly Jones performing "Time For Everything To Change" off of Mike's latest album "Ghoul", Ryan Robinson with his song "She's Movin' In" and Willie Wisely with Kelly Jones doing their wild arrangement of the Atlanta Rhythm Section's classic "So Into You".

    Dana Countryman and Tricia Countryman Interview on The Time Machine





    Singer-songwriter Dana Countryman was a guest on The Time Machine. He discussed his brand new album "Pop! The Incredible Fantastic World Retro Pop World Of Dana Countryman" and shared his thoughts on his album that also includes special musical guests Dee Long of Klaatu, Jimmie Herrod, Scott Krippayne, Peter McDonnell, Wally Reddington III, John Milne and Dana's wife Tricia Countryman. Tricia joined the interview midway during the broadcast. From his work in The Amazing Pink Things to his collaboration "Chicken on the Rocks" with Jean-Jacques Perrey featured on Comedy Central's "South Park", Dana's talent can tackle anything. He was the founder, publisher and editor of Cool & Strange Music! Magazine. The Time Machine Crew were tickled pink to have both Dana and Tricia on the broadcast the same day as Boz Scaggs and Susanna Hoffs. Dana has released an album filled with his musical friends that harkens back to the sixties and is an enjoyable album from start to finish.

    Susanna Hoffs Returns To The Time Machine With UNDER THE COVERS Vol.3




    Rockers Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs have just released their third album together. "Under The Covers Vol.3" is their third album of covers that the duo put together from the songbooks of other artists that they both feel passionate about. Susanna returned to The Time Machine Radio Show last week to share the latest batch of songs. The gifted artist discussed the inspiration behind some of the songs off of the new album. She also discussed with The Time Machine's radio show host, Michael McCartney, the previous two albums from the duo known affectionately as Sid 'n' Susie (Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs), as well as her 2012 album "Someday", which became the most played album on the air for The Time Machine out of all of the records released in 2012. If you're not familiar with the album series that Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs have been recording and releasing, what you essentially need to know is that the first album covered sixties material (with the exception of the early seventies classic Bee Gees song "Run To Me"). The second album "Under The Covers Vol. 2" dove into the seventies and this latest album naturally dips into the eighties. Dips may not be the correct choice of wording. This new album plunges into the eighties and both Matthew and Susanna's song choices are so inspired that this collection of songs are a must have for your music collection.

    Susanna is a core artist of The Time Machine's radio format going back to the eighties with her fellow band mates Vicki Peterson, Debbi Peterson and Michael Steele of The Bangles. The band, along with The Traveling Wilburys, were the most played act on The Time Machine and helped define a sound for the radio broadcast that embraced a sixties musical sensibility with the modern music scene of the time. All four albums from The Bangles in the eighties solidified their status as radio core artists on The Time Machine and their return in 2003 with "Doll Revolution" was welcomed with open arms. The domination of that album's airplay was so strong that it became the most played album of the decade followed by Rachael Yamagata's debut album "Happenstance", "Not Ready To Make Nice" by The Dixie Chicks, Bruce Springsteen's "The Rising", Alice Peacock's self titled sophomore album, "Come Away With Me" by Norah Jones, John Mayer's "Room For Squares", "Mondo Magneto" by Brian Ray, "Lurch" from Mike Viola, "Brainwashed" by George Harrison, Nushu's "Nevermind Lullabye" and Rilo Kiley's "More Adventurous".
