“Music is sunshine. Like sunshine, music is a powerful force that can instantly & almost chemically change your entire mood. Music gives us new energy & a stronger sense of purpose.” –Michael Franti
One of my passions is producing speedy, Mtv-like green radio vignettes. It’s an honor to meet artists like the multi-talented and conscious Michael Franti. He’s from the Bay Area. Ever gracious and kind, Michael spoke to me during soundcheck at Cafe Du Nord in San Francisco.
Listen to this 1 minute Planet Check report.

I recorded this in my home studio tonight on Pro Tools. Let me just say there’s only one Selena but this song is an ear worm that I just had to sing! The track was a big hit for Selena Gomez and the Scene. It was written and produced by Kevin Rudolf, Andrew Bolooki, Jeff Halavacs & co-written by Jacob Kasher and Fefe Dobson. This would be a great mash up with the Go-Go’s “We got the beat.”
Me, myself & I had a blast singing & dancing around. After several hours, here’s the final round Groove ON.

A big, wet congratulatory lick on the face to my friend, PARTY BEN! Two of his mash-ups are featured in
the Adam Sandler flick, Just Go With It. My favorite is UMBRELLA/TENDERNESS. Be his support bra

Last Friday, I got to see this band live here in SF. If you enjoy
electro-pop, then strap yourself in for a sweet ride by Bay Area
outfit, THE LIMOUSINES.
My 2 favorite trax:
1) “Internet Killed the Radio Star” which is getting radio airplay.
2) “Very Busy People”

Here’s a blast from the past. This was taken after I interviewed Sinead (the first time) at WOMAD
(World of Music, Art and Dance) in Denver, Colorado. I was fortunate to have a backstage pass with my dear friend from college, Mark Davis aka Richard Cheese Lounge Against the Machine fame. It was by sheer luck that we were at the right place, right time and simply asked if we could speak to Sinead. Remember, this was soon after she had been booed off stage at the Dylan concert. She was shy, soft spoken and gracious. I cherish this photo.
