Greetings And Happy New Year!

Hey All You Fusionfunkateers!
Just wanted to let you know that even though I didn't keep my promise about posting my latest interviews,a lot of it had to do with the fact that I didn't have any!
In any case,I'll be posting a lot more often,given that I have new equipmemt,and I'm currently working on a few things that will be of special interest to you.
In any case,2012 is gonna be a real fun year,so stay tuned!

Local And Homegrown Talent

HEY ALL YOU FUSIONFUNKATEERS!!!!
Just thought I'd let you know that your FUSIONFUNKMIESTER loves to put the spotlight on local and homegrown talent as well as musicians from other parts of the world!!
If you know of any truly talented musicians who are from the Kansas City area,whether they still reside here or not,or if you know of anyone else who could stand the boost in visibility (and are truly worth it,I hate to have to tell someone to get out of the music business!),this is where you can let me know!
Every so often,I do a special Thursday night Local Showcase,so talk to me!

Happy Birthday Wishes

HEY ALL YOU FUSIONFUNKATEERS!
I just want to take the time to wish two of my friends a very Happy Birthday!
Everette Devann,local organist, has a birthday on February 5th!
Jeff Jones,another local keyboardist,has a birthday on February 6th!
I've had the pleasure of playing with both of these extraordinarily talented local artists during my most active playing years.
Happy Birthday to you both!

My Tuesdat Midday Medley Commentary

HEY ALL YOU FUSIONFUNKATEERS!
Tomorrow on the show,I'll be giving my observations on the shooting in Tucson,Az.
I'll also give my thoughts on what lead to this heinous,barbaric act.
You can get in on the conversation if you like,but it will have to be here or on Facebook.
I must warn you:anytime I give a comment on the air,I don't take calls on the air concerning any comments of that nature during my show,and I certainly won't allow any discussion on the air.The only reason is because I not only host the show,I also do my own engineering,so I have a lot to pay attention to while I'm on the air.
Feel free to express you thoughts and opinions on Facebook or right here~
