We’re back with the first “Random Thoughts” in over two months with some great news…..the return of TheREWIND and TheREWIND//UK !!!
First off I’d like to thank everyone for being so patient during our hiatus and a special thanks to all of our faithful listeners who tuned into the station despite the lack of “live” shows. The station has been averaging well over 30+ listeners a day which shows dedication and mutual love for great music from the 70’s and 80’s. When I first saw this I was shocked because aside from regular posting on Facebook from our Executive Producers Claudia May and Holly Frye Orman there was no postings here or anything but when I started to think about it,it made sense since we have fantastic loyal listeners,many have been with us since the beginning and love our format. We here most appreciate you all hanging in there with us as we took some sorely needed personal time off. THANK YOU!! We hope to reward you all with great shows coming up! Having said that…..
October is chock full of new “LIVE” shows as we return to live programming starting with our 2nd Annual Daryl Hall Birthday Special which airs live on Thursday October 11th at 5:00 PM Eastern Time. Last year when we aired the first special we had our largest audience to date with over 500 listeners tuning in to the show. We hope to break that record this year as we’ve already started advertising on Facebook and Instagram in anticipation for the show, This year I plan to change things up a bit instead of playing Daryl’s music chronologically like I normally to,I intend to mix things up a bit and including an extended “live music” segment which will feature the great music from Daryl and John Oates from live concerts from their past shows!! As you all know,I’m a BIG TIME Hall&Oates fan and I’m looking forward to bring you all this special so be on the lookout for details both here and on Facebook,Twitter and Instagram and Google Plus!
The Daryl Hall Special is just the beginning…we also have the return of our regular lineup with the return of TheREWIND starting Monday October 15th at 7:00 PM Eastern time as we wind down our Endless Summer Nights Series where the theme will be Cool Change as we’ll feature the music of The Little River Band,Christopher Cross,Blondie,Gordon Lightfoot and much more! The return of TheREWIND//UK returns with a new day and time,starting Friday October 19th at a new time,3:00 PM Eastern Time/8:00 PM-20:00 UK-Euro Time as we bring back our REWIND Essentials Album Spotlight Series with George Michael’s 1996 LP Older as well as his live concert EP Unplugged. Of course we’ll play some of George’s big hits as well so if your a big George Michael/WHAM! fan be sure to tune in for this show! Fridays at 3:00PM ET/8:00PM UK time will be the permanent date and time for the show. also coming up we’ll take you back to your local roller/ice skating rink on Monday October 22nd at 7:00 PM ET with great music of the 70’s and 80’s that was played at skating rinks all over with a show entitled ALL SKATE!! On Friday October 26th we continue our Producers Series with famed music producer Hugh Padgham and featuring music from such artists as The Police,Genesis,Phil Collins,Hall and Oates,Sting and more. We finish the month of October with a show dedicated to “live” music from some of your favorite artists called Livetime!
So get ready for the return of our great programming,great shows and of course great music all month long from Claudia,Holly and myself so stay tuned!!!!

Sad news in the world of music,co-founder of both Jefferson Airplane and Jefferson Starship,musician,songwriter,vocalist Marty Balin passed away this past Thursday September 27th at the age of 76. His voice was to myself and many people,pure gold! He not only co-founded Jefferson Airplane,which had classic hits such as,”White Rabbit” and “Somebody To Love” but help create the “San Francisco acid rock music” sound of the 1960’s but co-founded a more modern incarnation of the band as Jefferson Starship in 1974 with such classic hits as “With Your Love” and “Count On Me”,”Runaway” and the all time classic song,”Miracles”. In 1981 he embarked on a solo career with a Top 10 LP simply called “Balin” which spawned top hit songs,his only top 10 hit single,”Hearts” and a very underrated top 40 hit single,”Atlanta Lady”. His voice and music will be remembered forever….certainly here on the station as we’ll always remember his smooth voice.

First off,I hope everyone had a great summer. For me,this has been a very trying summer season to say the least,however you have to try to put your best foot forward and put a smile on your face regardless if you want to or not. But sometimes,”LIFE” gets in the way and it’s during these times you have to do what you have to do and make adjustments. Sadly that includes the radio station and all activities involved with it.
Recently our own producer Holly Frye Orman has gone through a lot,she’s become a grandmother(congratulations),sadly lost a family friend and now she has had to deal with a lot of medical issues of her own having to go back and forth to the hospital. Naturally, during this time,she hasn’t been able to participate in almost all aspects of the station and her lost has been tremendous!
Our other producer Claudia May,who has been nothing less than a brainstorm when it comes to ideas for shows has been dealing with life issues,mainly with her son going off to college and work has to juggle all of this PLUS try to fit it programming for the station despite a five hour time difference from her native United Kingdom to the USA which is very tough and at times frustrating.
And on my end trying to balance the radio station and show duties and being a single father has NOT been easy. All three of us have been struggling to maintain a equal balance between our own personal lives and our duties at the station,particularly the two shows we produce and our “BEST OF” shows and “Move It Mondays.” With recent events happening at the same time kind of caused a “perfect storm” for pre-empting scheduled live show at the last minute,changing days for live show,so on and so forth which doesn’t make for a good dependable internet radio station.Between all three of our situations,a decision had to be made about the foreseeable future of the station,show wise. Unfortunately, for the present time TheREWIND//UK has been put on a temporary hiatus and TheREWIND as we know it will be reduced to all music format segments on Monday nights at 7PM ET and not the normal “live” interactive format that has made our show what it was in the past. The “BEST OF” and “Move It Mondays” will be put on hold also. As always,the station will be playing the BEST music from the 70’s and 80’s,24 hours and day,7 days a week. This will NOT be permanent,however I cannot give a timetable when things return to a normal schedule,when that happens,you’ll be the first to know. I like to thank everyone for your support and listenership this past year and a half and hope to continue and grow the station when we get back to a regular schedule. Until then please look at Facebook and the website for news and details and here’s looking to the future…Thank you!

First off I would like to send special Get Well wishes to our own Holly Frye Orman who has had quite a spell in the time being. She’s become a grandmother (Congratulations) but sadly at the same time had a family friend pass away,her other grandson become ill and now she has been ill,in fact she was hospitalized these past couple days. Along with myself and our other producer,Claudia we wish Holly a speedy and full recovery! Having said that,in deference to Holly,we will postpone the planned show for tonight and instead have a “FREESTYLE” show tonight starting at 7:00 PM ET as we play all type of music from the 70’s and 80’s,pop,R&B,smooth jazz,disco,yacht rock,old school rap,we’ll play it all so we’ll have an eclectic show for sure! Since Holly’s under the weather I’ll need everyone’s help on Facebook so please join me for some great fun tonight!
