Unplugged And Totally Uncut: Matrimony

Listen to the interview on I Heart Radio I laugh a child's giggle when set free on the back roads of Carolina. The essence of romance attached to a vibrant roller coaster experience while being shot into and between and old south meeting the present. There are no roads like an old Carolina highway. Hugging the twisty curvy rolling hills of a layer of land that drew from other parts of the world. The ancestors knew they were home when they were approached by the shores of Carolina. Far from being a well kept secret. For it has been poured into the veins of this writing machine called Matrimony. Those who know our highways will agree the purity of innocence still remains. While the music of Matrimony will influence the waves to bring travelers from afar to this place. Just to experience what they did while writing Southern Skies.

Unplugged And Totally Uncut: Conductor Albert George Schram

Listen to the interview on I Heart Radio Most people dream of one day meeting a Rock or Country star. They're inspired and or influenced by their passions in the performance. I love our Charlotte Symphony! The vibration of sight and sound could and wouldn't be as motivational if it wasn't for Conductor Albert George Schram. He's animated. His desires are to bring out a performance and let it touch not only the front row but the very tippy tip top of the Blumanthal Performing Arts Center. I'd love to the see the numbers on the amount of non-symphony visitors that instantly became fans of not only the multitudes of talent sharing their gifts. But he who is Conductor Albert George Schram. The Magic Of Christmas December 5-8th Get tickets Learn more about our Conductor

Unplugged And Totally Uncut: Charles Fazzino

Listen to the interview on I Heart Radio INFO I'll never forget the first time I stepped into a Charles Fazzino show. The colors. Vibrantly breathtaking. The depth of each expression wasn't the thickness of acrylic dropped off by a passing paint brush. But a picture postcard. It's because of Charles that my latest book goes into graphic detail into how important a photograph can be. Pictures share stories. Therefore, like an album or favorite book. The phonographic photograph reaches into the soul of the passerby and whispers a warm invitation to let go of the moment and step within the presentation of lyrics only your heart could write while falling back in love. Biography and art See Charles art in person

Unplugged And Totally Uncut: Author Tim English

Listen to the interview on I Heart Radio INFO I've never been just a "Jock." Radio has always been my performance. Not a gig. Not a job. To reach listeners its been my 34 year goal to locate the keys that opens their imagination. That means a lot of research has gone into knowing the artists that make a listener move through life. I was on the air before the internet was born. That means I had to use books to make my connection. Tim English has a new title that also connects dot. The music of the 1960's and how the titles of four icons spoke out to them in ways history has never talked about. Until now... Website: Twitter: Facebook:

Listen to the interview on I Heart Radio I've always believed the next great writer's holding classic American novels will be the voices hidden away in places of assumed safety.

Listen to the session Country Music has always delivered the most down to earth real people. The connection between song lyrics and fans is a valuable piece of the heritage that's been breathing life into the soil of America.

Unplugged And Totally Uncut: Comedian Jim Breuer

Listen to the interview on I Heart Radio Showmanship has always been my addiction. Maintaining it is a method of art. It allows every twist and unexpected turn to become a reason why life is truly worth laughing about. Comedian /Actor Jim Breuer can't fall into the ranks of being grown up and playing the part of fatherhood. This is the kind of Dad you'd love to have. The one that looks around every corner and discovers newer reasons to appreciate indifference.

Unplugged And Totally Uncut: Astrid Haven Is Back

Listen to the music and interview on I Heart Radio The more I dig into the soul of modern music. The more I realize the evolution of a revolution is set to rise from the darkness of the underground. Showmanship has always been my favorite ride. Getting into the minds of a creative eye proves to be the best high on earth. Astrid Haven returns. On stage they're loud. They don't blend in yet their following continues to give them permission to keep growing out and extremely wide. Then I totally mess things up by asking them to re-grip the strings and give me something acoustic. I wish the world could have seen their eyes when for the first time...they bent the ropes of what they expected and totally came out on top. Just as I expected. Music videos Music videos

Unplugged And Totally Uncut: Tim Stop

Listen to the interview on I Heart Radio Less than a month ago Walt Parazaider of Chicago and I were discussing what it takes to mold a modern day singer songwriter into becoming a long lasting lyric in the hearts of an always on the move listener. There had to be something more dynamic to American Culture than making weekly appearances on American Idol and The Voice. It became my quest to take my thirty four years in Radio and hit the back roads of performance. Sam Ashe and The Guitar Center are selling instruments to someone. Who are they and where are they? Lets check in with the man opening for the group Chicago. Tim Stop

Unplugged And Totally Uncut: Bill Waterman

Listen to the interview on I Heart Radio No story can be written unless there's a beginning. Barely a writer knows of the method of delivery. Just that there will be a middle and one day an ending. Being isn't the act of being. Being is the physical presence of living. In this age of big talk and Face Book to back you up. There still stands the loan sword capable of cutting the cold from the wind while warming the soul of the lost mind and body. It's not every day that God introduces you to a hero. But when you do meet. The handshake becomes a forever imprint on the very path that Jesus carries us across. Hope. Faith. Love. Understanding. If you think you've got it down like a pro football player understanding their play book. What if the next move included a decision? To give the ball to the other side. No questions asked.

Unplugged And Totally Uncut: ManRave Phil Collen And Simon Laffy

Listen to the interview wo decades ago they called them "Super Bands." Today the industry of fans and critics have slimmed the term down to "Collaborations." ManRaze ignites a set of ear buds with an electronic fire that can't be tamed. The only way to put it out is to whip out your Beats wireless speaker and Bluetooth the next step of metal meeting punk with a mind blowing modern unplugged Sam Cook rhythm that honestly could make this band a statement called: Forever Hear the songs

Unplugged And Totally Uncut: Author Eric Storlie

Listen to the interview on I Heart Radio I've studied religion and spirituality my entire life. Native American to Buddhism. Christianity to Hinduism. Americanism to Corporate Success-ism. Being a second degree black belt in martial arts is often confused with breaking bricks and landing solid kicks. But to live the path means communication. With a self that most in this nation continue to run from. Erik Storlie's book Just Go Deep And Take Plenty Of Root serves an open door to explore.

Unplugged And Totally Uncut: Bobby Lee

Listen to the interview on I Heart Radio Comedy isn't a magic trick. Comedy isn't a Christmas gift. Comedy is a muscle that needs to be exercised every day. The gyms may change. But not the physical act of delivering lines that deliver listeners to a much happier place.

But on this planet there lives a group of men and women whose mission is commissioned by a soul driven need to influence and or inspired the human imagination to reach out from darkness and pull toward them a willing way.

Mick is at the Comedy Zone Charlotte tonight 11/6/13

Unplugged And Totally Uncut: Tony Kishman from Live And Let Die

Listen to the interview on I Heart Radio I honestly didn't know who the Beatles were. Not until I discovered the 45's and albums connected to the guy singing Band on the Run. There were rumors! To which I ignored until Silly Love Songs and Let em in were released. Then I went searching for Paul McCartney's roots and found Maybe I'm Amazed and Uncle Albert and Admiral Halsey. I can still feel the pressure of an upset radio station program director when I decided to spin Helen Wheels. That's kind of a nasty song when you're standing ten feet from the radio speakers. Live and Let Die with The Charlotte Symphony November 15th and 16th at Knight Theater. Get tickets Watch a video of Tony
