NEON HIGHWAY BLUES, steering its 11 tracks with the confidence and assuredness of a veteran and the freshness of someone who's still in the process of discovery and refinement -- with the help of famous friends such as Eric Gales, Lance Lopez, Josh Smith and Hoey's 17-year-old son Ian Hoey."I really wanted to make sure this album had a lot of blues on it," says Hoey, who self-produced NEON HIGHWAY BLUES and recorded it at his home studio in New Hampshire. “I kept sticking to the blues and listening to the classic players, all the Kings, Albert King, Freddie King, BB King, and finish with some Burger King. Hoey laughs” tried to get that to be a focus of this record -- and still put some songs for that my long-time, die-hard fans expect; instrumentals and some rockin' Zeppelin type stuff. There's definitely a variety here."Hoey's not kidding. NEON HIGHWAY BLUES kicks off with "Under the Rug," a funky, Jeff Beck style workout with Eric Gales. Up next is the dynamic 6:29 slow blues "Mercy of Love," with Josh Smith, with biting guitar solos, Hoey gets his Texas swing on for "Still Believe in Love" and settles into some roadhouse shuffles on "Your Kind of Love," and "Damned If I Do," is a big, stomping blues rocker with Lance Lopez trading licks. And those majestic instrumentals he mentioned? Check out "Almost Heaven," "Waiting on the Sun" and the cinematic title track, all showcases of virtuosity that complement the grittier fare around them.A very personal highlight for Hoey is "Don't Come Crying," an aching blues track that features one Ian Hoey, then only 16, planting his flag in the "family business." "I'm so blown away my son is actually on the record," Hoey says. "He loves the blues. I said, 'If it turns out good enough, I'll have you on the record, and he did a great job. After it was mixed and I listened to it. I totally forgot where he was playing and where I was playing. It brought tears to my eyes."NEON HIGHWAY BLUES "wasn't a quick record to make," nor was it easy, according to Hoey, and displays the care that came with the time spent on it. "I always say that's why they call it the blues, because it ain't easy," he notes. The album took about a year and a half, he estimates, much of it done during gaps in his heavy touring schedule. "I just kept going in and trying to come up with the right licks or the right lyrics, and some days it just wouldn't come," Hoey recalls. "It was really about staying in there and trying things, abandoning some ideas, going on to new ideas. There was a lot of that on this record. I'm kind of a stickler for making sure I'm happy with it -- even though I had people breathing down my neck to get it done."

Among the fighters featured on the debut of Triad Combat include Two-Time UFC Heavyweight World Champion Frank Mir, Two-Time Boxing Heavyweight World Title Challenger Kubrat ‘The Cobra’ Pulev and former UFC Superstar ‘Platinum’ Mike Perry. The unique broadcast is expected to shatter all existing Pay-Per-View records and will include special surprises throughout.The producer of Triad Combat is the award-winning visionary and creative force behind American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance (where he also serves as on-screen judge), Nigel Lythgoe. Nigel Lythgoe can let combat sports fans know what they can expect from the premiere of Triad Combat, how it uniquely bridges the gap between boxing and MMA, and how its faster-paced format and musical performances will appeal to a wide variety of fans.

This is Play It Forward. Real people. Real stories. The struggle to Play It Forward. Episode 338 with Richard Carpenter.The definitive biography of one of the most enduring and endeared recording artists in history-the Carpenters-is told for the first time from the perspective of Richard Carpenter, through more than 100 hours of exclusive interviews and some 200 photographs from Richard's personal archive, many never published. After becoming multimillion-selling, Grammy-winning superstars with their 1970 breakthrough hit "(They Long to Be) Close to You," Richard and Karen Carpenter would win over millions of fans worldwide with a record-breaking string of hits including "We've Only Just Begun," "Top of the World," and "Yesterday Once More." By 1975, success was taking its toll. Years of jam-packed work schedules, including hundreds of concert engagements, proved to be just too much for the Carpenters to keep the hits coming-and, ultimately, to keep the music playing at all. However, Richard and Karen never took their adoring public, or each other, for granted. In Carpenters: The Musical Legacy, Richard Carpenter tells his story for the first time. With candor, heart, and humor, he sheds new light on the Carpenters' trials and triumphs-work that remains the gold standard for melodic pop. This beautifully illustrated definitive biography, with exclusive interviews and never-before-seen photographs, is a must-have for any Carpenters fan.

Pod Crashing Episode 130 with AJ Daulerio from the podcast Really Good SharesReally Good Shares is a recovery podcast - part interview show, part experimental storytelling collaboration. We talk about recovery from all kinds of things: car crashes, identity crises, drugs, alcohol, ego. Each episode features a Share from a guest about how they got by and musical accompaniment from legendary soul singer Swamp Dogg. Even if you're not in recovery, these stories have something to teach. RGS is based on the recovery newsletter The Small Bow, which host A.J. Daulerio created after he got out of rehab and wanted to hear stories about sobriety, mental health, and spirituality that he couldn't easily find on the internet.Most people equate recovery with redemption - the part where people who've quit drugs or alcohol then tell you how they did it and how good their lives are now - but RGS focuses less on the beginning and ending of rock bottoms, and more about the middle of the journey, making it through the woods. Join A.J. as he speaks with writers, entertainers, social workers, magazine editors, recovering addicts, recovering jerks - people - about how they made it through hard things and got better because of it. Maybe some of this will help you get better too.
