Hall & Oates Release Their First New Original Song in 14 Years, But It’s With Train

Here's and Article from Spin Magazine regarding the new Halll and Oates release. Daryl Hall and John Oates were among the greatest pop hitmakers of the late 1970s and 1980s. They’ve regularly toured together over the decades and in recent years, but haven’t actually released any new original music together since 2004, when they contributed a couple of originals to Our Kind of Soul, an album that otherwise consisted of only classic soul covers. Today, Hall & Oates have released a new original song, as they prepare for a sprawling summer tour. The only issue is that the song is a collaboration with the co-headliner of that tour: Train. Fittingly, the song is a tribute to H&O’s hometown of Phil

Alice Cooper Plays King Herod In Jesus Christ Superstar Production

On Sunday night, Alice Cooper will take part in Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert, NBC's live production of the classic Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice musical. The shock rocker, who portrays the sinister King Herod, says he wasn't surprised he was asked to play a villain in the show. "I was pretty sure they weren't gonna cast me as Jesus," declares Cooper, whose concerts feature monsters, a guillotine, a giant snake and lots of fake blood. "[T]he Alice Cooper character's always been the villain, so I was pretty sure I was gonna either be Herod or Judas." Cooper, who actually is a devout Christian, adds about the role, "The Herod part's fun, because it really is the only fairly funny s

Listening on an Internet Radio

Joe Biden Comes to His Home State to Share His Thoughts on Gun Violence. - News Journal Article

WILMINGTON, Del. — Former Vice President Joe Biden said he skipped the March for Our Lives rally in Washington, D.C., to share his thoughts in his home state of Delaware.

Radio Alumni Takeover Weekend - Music, Fun and Friendship!

About 46 years ago, I walked into my college radio station (WPSC – William Paterson University) with the hopes of getting a show and playing great music. Being so new to the school and not knowing anyone, I was apprehensive a little scared and not sure of the outcome. After auditioning, I did get a show and thus began my 46 year journey into the world of radio. During my time at WPSC, I met some great people, learned so much about radio and music. Much of the music I wasn’t familiar with. I learned to love a whole new world of various music genres. The years passed so quickly that before I knew it, graduation time was fast approaching. During those few short years, the radio station becam

Low Power FM Serving The Community......or is it???

When I was a kid, I often wondered why I was so interested in radio. At that time radio, vinyl records and tape were the only ways to hear our favorite songs but that wasn’t the only reason why I loved radio. I remember waking up every morning and hearing positive, upbeat voices, great music and very memorable jingles as well as news and events that were happening in my area. I immediately felt good and was ready to face the day. So for me radio wasn’t just the music. It was a combination of many elements. As I began my radio career, I was blessed to work with some great mentors who gave me the structure I needed to grow and improve. In order for radio stations to have any chance of succee

Back to WPSC - For Alumni Takeover Weekend!

It's hard to believe that it's been over 43 years since I was at my college radio station at William Paterson University in Wayne, NJ. It was the place where I began my radio journey. I walked into WPSC , then 590 AM and carrier current which meant it broadcast to only to several buildings around the campus. I was given a show and met some of the best people of my life. Over the past nine years or so technology has brought us all back together after the loss of Mike (Spyder)McGuire, our beloved friend. Mike was also at WPSC during this time and then went on to be a very popular DJ on various radio stations throughout the area. Now WPSC (WP88.7 Brave New Radio) is an award winning FM station

An Easy Way to Listen to Internet Radio

Internet radio is a growing medium but instantaneous listening can be a problem. You can't get into your car turn on the radio and on comes your internet station. Hopefully someday, this will change with all of the advanced technology. To listen in the car, you have to plug in your mobile device, select your station from the app, use a small transmitter with blue tooth or connect your mobile device directly to your car speakers and click to start your station. Some cars are equipped with an app like Tunein on their touch pad. This makes connecting a bit easier. A very easy way is to listen on an Amazon Echo or Google device but the station that you select must be on the apps that the devi

Boycott United Airlines!

I’m sitting here writing this today still very sickened and saddened after the death of an innocent dog that was stuffed into an overhead compartment on a United Airlines Flight. You can read this very disturbing story in a CBS article below. Before we do that, let me point out that of the last 24 pets that died on an airplane, 18 we on United. There is a real underlying problem with United Airlines. The care of passengers and pets are neglected in preference to money, money money! I’ve been writing this blog for over nine years and I’ve never asked my readers for anything. This time, I’m asking you to boycott United Airlines. The only thing that will cause an large, corporate conglomerate t

Blood Sweat and Tears Appearing at Harrington Raceway and Casino in Harrington , Delaware April 7th

Music Diversity in the 1960's

The 1960's were a time of upheaval in society, fashion, attitudes and especially music. Before 1963, the music of the sixties still reflected the sound, style and beliefs of the previous decade and many of the hit records were by artists who had found mainstream success in the 1950s, like Elvis Presley, Ray Charles, Dion, and The Everly Brothers. In 1963 and the years to follow, a number of social influences changed what popular music was and gave birth to the diversity that we experience with music today. The assassination of President Kennedy, the escalation of the war in Vietnam and the forward-progress of the Civil Rights Movement all greatly impacted the mood of American culture and the

Radio Station's Image and Consistency

Working in radio for over 30 years, I've learned several things that will determine the success of your station. Nothing annoys me more than turning on a station whether it be a terrestrial AM or FM station, or an internet station and not knowing what or who I'm listening to. The proper imaging will let your audience know who you are and in most cases the format of your station. It's critical to use appropriate imaging all the time! The major issue that affects many stations is that they are not consistent. They really have no format and whoever attempts to listen may hear a rock song they like, then without any imaging or transition they'll hear a jazz song. This will not only alienate but
