George Millar of The Irish Rovers Interview on The Time Machine
The Irish Rovers are making historical concert stops on the islands of Maui this Friday and Hawaii on Saturday. Performing here is a first for the group and it promises to be a great deal of fun. Founding member George Millar was a guest on The Time Machine Radio Show this past week sharing with the radio audience his thoughts and inspirations behind some of the classic songs and latest recordings of The Irish Rovers.
Singer-songwriter and Oscar, Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Minnie Driver was a guest on The Time Machine. Since the release of her first album, her music has become a fixture on the radio playlists of The Time Machine for the last ten years. Minnie took some time off from the set of NBC's series "About A Boy", to shared with host Michael McCartney and the radio audience, her thoughts and inspiration behind the songs she chose to record for her brand new beautiful and haunting covers album "Ask Me To Dance". The album was a labor of love and songwriters featured on her third album include Robert Smith (The Cure’s “Close to Me”), Elliott Smith (“Waltz #2”), Stevie Wonder (“Master Blaster”), Paul Weller ("Wild Wood"), Neil Young (“Tell Me Why”), John Prine (“Speed of the Sound of Loneliness”) and Neil Finn ("Better Be Home Soon" from Crowded House) along with "Love Song" composed by Lesley Duncan (Elton John covered the song on his classic "Tumbleweed Connection"). Minnie's arrangement of "Love Song" has been in heavy rotation on The Time Machine's playlists since late summer. Minnie takes The Killers’ “Human” and turns it upside down as an almost country ballad and she turns Bart Howard's “Fly Me to the Moon”, a song that became a swinging standard for Frank Sinatra, into an incredibly intimate moment.
