Harry Nilsson Special Schmecial

From Joyride Media | 54:00

Friends and family talk about the life and music of Harry Nilsson

Screen_shot_2013-08-19_at_10 Harry Nilsson followed his own path.  He was part iconoclast and part storyteller, and his curiousity, sense of humor and dramatic flair led him to create an extremely wide range of music.

Elvis at Stax

From Joyride Media | 59:00

Stories from Elvis Presley's 1973 session at Stax Studios in Memphis

Screen_shot_2013-08-15_at_11

In 1973, Elvis Presley had every right to be excited for the future.  He had signed a new recording contract, formed his own publishing company and finally controlled his business.  With a pile of new songs, Elvis decided to record at the legendary Stax Studios in Memphis – home to some of the brightest soul artists of the time.
 
In this one-hour radio special, you’ll hear highlights from those sessions and talk with the people who were in the room.

Sly & the Family Stone Higher

From Joyride Media | 54:00

Two hours honor Sly Stone as he turns 70 in 2013. Can be aired together, separately or your choice of one or the other.

Higher-box_small SLY STONE USED HIS MUSIC TO SPEAK ABOUT PEACE, UNITY AND LOVE, AND WITH THE FAMILY STONE, HE BACKED UP HIS WORDS. AS THE FIRST MAJOR ROCK BAND TO BE MULTI-RACIAL AND MIXED GENDER, SLY AND THE FAMILY STONE MADE A STATEMENT EVEN BEFORE THEY HIT THEIR FIRST FUNKY NOTES.

THEY CROSSED MUSICAL GENRES. THEY CROSSED RACIAL AND GENDER LINES. THEY WERE SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS BUT NOT POLITICAL.

THESE ARE A FEW THINGS THAT SLY AND THE FAMILY STONE BROUGHT TO THE TABLE DURING THEIR YEARS AS A BAND, AND WHAT THEY DID CONTINUES TO INFLUENCE ARTISTS TODAY.

IN THE FIRST HOUR, WE’LL HEAR THE STORY OF SLY AND THE FAMILY STONE FROM MANY OF THE MUSICIANS WHO PLAYED IN THE BAND.

IN THE SECOND HOUR, WE’LL HEAR ABOUT THE IMPACT OF SLY AND THE FAMILY STONE FROM CHUCK D, BERNIE WORRELL, THE LATE ISAAC HAYES, ROBERT RANDOLPH, WARREN HAYNES AND MANY MORE.
