Standing by for Ignition, with Grace Potter & The Nocturnals

I began my commercial broadcast radio career starting back in the early 90s, in Hampton Roads, Virginia. Working for that region’s heritage rock station was quite an introduction to the civilian world, as I had only recently finished my enlistment in the U.S. Navy.

A BackYard Barbeque with Keller Williams

Richmond, Virginia is one of those southern cities where one can ‘feel’ the history.. It’s everywhere you look..

Garaj Mahal's Discovery | Out of the Garaj, Into The Open..

“This is just the beginning to my journey with this instrument” –Fareed Haque

Have you felt patronized by music lately?  Do the simple pop schemes disappoint you? Are you looking for something complex and intricate?  Then this is the album for you.  This is musician’s music.  The 12 set track listing is similar to satellite radio, changing frequencies and styles from track to track.  By the third track, “Never Give Up”, Garaj can hush the crowd with the haughty hues and hot-headed harmonies.
