Thanksgiving is that one holiday when the family is focused on family, togetherness, and love of family. But, when a family splits in two, Thanksgiving looks and feels different. I did notice those differences, but the music stood out the most.
Go to Bed

Go to Bed

2021-10-1801:28:25

Our generation grew up when television was just getting started, and if your family was like mine. Going to bed with the television on was a way of life. I’ve asked health coach Christina Wakefield to be my special guest on this episode. Christina works at Parsely Health, a membership-based, holistic health, holistic medicine healthcare provider, to which I am a member, and Christina is my health coach! This was a deep, and informative live session

Have you ever had an experience in your life when you just knew something messed up was going to happen? In 1985 I had that feeling. What I didn't know was, it was going to happen while I was building my new storefront recording and rehearsal studio! I was so pissed!

Long before I had given thought to play an instrument. Life was knocking at my door saying. "Hey, music is your path in your life, man, wake up!" I ignored it for the longest time. Flying model rockets was way more fun! Until one day, I picked up a kazoo, you remember, the little plastic wax paper instrument? I played the hell out of that instrument, which led to performing live in concert, in...the "cafeteria," LOL!

Woo! The Lyrics

Woo! The Lyrics

2021-06-1501:57:22

Lyrics, the meaning in a song; we're so driven by the beat and groove in a song; the lyrics go over our heads. Yet, when you stop to listen to the lyrics, how many times did you say, that's my story? I feel that way, or I can relate. Music is powerful. Music with lyrics speaking to the human experience is epic! Let's listen to some deep lyrics.

Fantasy World, my latest single releases today, but how did I almost not record this song, and what "reinspired" me to record it after forty years of it sitting in my ice cooler! Come on, let's go "Back in The Dave" to 1981, when this song deeply disappointed me!  
Sly

Sly

1968 was the mark of a significant change in sound in the music industry. Sly and The Family Stone released their first single, "Dance to The music," and music would never be the same again. I was the young age of six that year, and it would be eight years before I'd make a decision to become a musician and begin to play Sly and The Family Stone songs on my bass. I wouldn't fully understand the "deep" impact of Sly and The Family Stone's influence on my bass playing, songwriting, and production until after decades are gone.
Blue Soul

Blue Soul

2021-03-1402:18:11

I was innocent in my teens. I didn't care who made the music. I loved it and the artists. Over time, I kept hearing the term "blue-eyed soul," I didn't know what it meant, and I didn't care! But it did begin to stir my curiosity the more I heard it. One day in 1978, at an M-U-1 band practice. I asked John, the bandleader, "what does blue-eyed soul mean?" With a chiseled look, he said, "David, it's white folks stealing our music!" I was shocked! I had no idea. A person's skin didn't matter to me.
Barry White

Barry White

2021-02-1401:38:34

Let's honor the life and music of the maestro, Barry White! Through his music, we'll celebrate "Black History Month" and Valentine's day. Sitting in the back seat of my mother's Chevy Nova, a song came on the radio. I thought it was Issac Hayes! I listened more, "no, it's not Issac Hayes, wait, yes it is, no, yes, no, yes,! I thought my ears were playing tricks on me. Finally, I realized it wasn't Hayes. At the end of the song the DJ said, "and that was Barry White!" "Who the heck is Barry White?" I asked myself. I had no idea. I only knew I loved his music, and I soon found out! Before Lionel Richie and the Commodores, Barry White was my man!
In The Closet

In The Closet

2021-01-1501:52:31

My dad, boy, oh boy, I could say a ton of things about him! One thing that stands out was his sick sense of humor. When he was in comedy mode, he'd do anything to get a laugh from his children. One day, he took it way, way too far! In this episode, my take on the Capitol building riot.
Sounds of Christmas

Sounds of Christmas

2020-12-0601:41:45

Every year Christmas and the holidays bring joy and sadness. It's that one time of year when the two emotions interconnect. We celebrate the holidays, the spirit of Christmas, bringing in a new year, and yet, it's a reminder of the people we've lost, the pains we have suffered, or the struggles we have. I experience these emotions, and at the same time, I think about the music that was played in my home growing up, and as I face my emotions. I allow the music that filled our home to balance me out!
Love Story

Love Story

2020-11-0201:30:28

Is it love that I feel? I've just got to know myself is it real? Those are the opening lyrics to Larry Graham's 1978 song, "Is it Love?" Love is the experience and desire we all want during our lifetime; love is a want and a need, wrapped up in one! And yet, there's no guarantee we will truly and fully experience love. In this episode, Brenda B. shares her "love story" during her teenage years in the early 1970s. A love so strong, life could not break its connection.
The Beginning of the End

The Beginning of the End

2020-10-1501:06:40

There are times in life when we find ourselves doing things we didn't think we'd ever have to do. In the spring of 1988, I was in a situation that terrified me, while two hours out at sea!
Melodies without words

Melodies without words

2020-10-0102:02:03

Once upon a time, there were melodies without words. Walls of sound, harmonies, and grooves, uplifting melodies, beautiful and equal to their lyrical counterparts, during the passage of the fifty moons, the wordless melodies became hidden behind a mountain of beats "rapped" in rhyming words, and over time the melodies without words became lost to its people, what the melodies without words didn't realize was, their wordless harmonies and grooves had remained in the hearts of the people, for the "beated rap's" could not survive the fifty moon passage!

When you think of music, what comes to mind, beats, melodies, and lyrics? As a composer and musician, those are the tools I use to create music. They are the vehicles for a musical experience! To really experience music similar to a musician, you have to look into its core, its life form, its power force, its energy! Let's connect to the song!

Have you ever felt like you just wanted to go home? That life, being an adult, and everything that comes with it takes you to a point where if you could turn back the clock and go back to your childhood home, or that place in life that "feels" like home to you, would you go back? I would, and while I know there's no time machine, I have a song that takes me home, and I play it specifically for that reason, and without fail, in my mind, it drops me at the front door of my old house.

Music is the one creative energy that all humans connect with, of course, it's subjective, still, we somehow find our way to the music we love, during modern music's early days, fans would listen to music on the radio, records, and tapes, but there was one platform that went under the radar. Television! We took for granted the music embedded in tv shows, the theme songs that we walked around humming in our heads, or whistling down the street. I bet if I asked you to sing "Mr. Rogers's neighborhood," you could in a heartbeat because we had no idea the music introducing the start of our favorite television show captivated us so deeply, and often, the lyrics revealed what the show was about. Though most television show's theme music never got radio airplay, they were just as popular as radio hits, and some did make the radio, so let's go back and sing along!
