Kip Addotta - October 9, 2014 - "This morning I had the great pleasure to appear on the Sandy Kastel and Friends Show on KLVA 1230 AM radio, in Las Vegas (9 am Monday through Friday).  As you may know, I generally keep the "Carping Lamp" lit and it was indeed lit when I called into the show.  Well, it wasn't more than a few moments into the interview when I found myself totally disarmed and chatting with two of the sweetest people that I have the pleasure of meeting.  We were talking about cooking, kitchens, Sicilian and Italian food, grandmothers and family.  I felt like a big dog lying on my back, paws apart, being scratched on the tummy with loving hands.  Sandy (a Miss Nevada and singer) was welcoming and unafraid.  Michael (Master Chef and drummer) fascinated me with cooking tips and hints AND they both allowed me to join in the fun, at will.  The time blew by and then Sandy thanked me for being on her show and our visit was, sadly, over.  I glanced at my custom-made Rolex and to my amazement, I had been on the air 45 minutes.  I guess the old saying is true: (insert old saying here).  So, if you're looking for some fun, listen to this show and I guarantee that you will be some or I will send your money back, no questions asked (BTW the show is free).  Thank you, Tom Mazzetta for making this happen!  While I'm at it, here's a shout out to Allen Nechy, my bookie.  Let it ride."

Sugar Blue -  1985 Grammy Award-winning harmonica virtuoso Sugar Blue is nor your typical bluesman.  Born James Whiting, he was raised in Harlem, NY, where his mother was a singer and dancer at the fabled Apollo Theater.  Blue began his career as  street musician and made his first recordings in 1975 with legendary blues figures Brownie McGhee and Roosevelt Sykes.  He has performed with the Rolling Stones and numerous jazz and blues musicians in the ensuing years.   From his website (www.sugar-blue.com), "Sugar Blue  incorporates what he has learned into his visionary and singular style, technically dazzling yet wholly soulful.

He bends, shakes, spills flurries of notes with simultaneous precision and abandon, combining dazzling technique with smoldering expressiveness and gives off enough energy to light up several city square blocks…

And sings too! His distinctive throat tends to be overlooked  in the face of his instrumental virtuosity – he’s got a rich, sensual voice with a whisper of huskiness which by itself would be something out of the ordinary. But oh, there’s that harmonica again…"

WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 15

Joan Curtis -  Five-time author, Joan C. Curtis' her latest book, a mystery/suspense thrillerThe Clock Strikes Midnight, is scheduled to be published on November 25th.

Susan Toney - Celebrated as a poignant lyricist, accomplished musician and transcendent vocalist, American artist Susan Toney showcases a fusion of pop, country, roots, blues and rock in her latest CD project entitled LOVE IS THE CURE-THE ESSENTIAL COLLECTION.  Encompassing the influences of her heritage, Toney delivers a transparent, introspective collection of songs steeped in spirituality—revealing subtle revelations of faith, renewed wisdom and confidence in her message and her craft—all mused by a new chance on life—a miracle.

           

Susan miraculously survived a rollover car crash in November 2003 and her survival was grave. But with a faithful heart, unbridled spirit, and a strength that rushed through her veins, she recognized the tragic accident as an ultimate part of God’s plan and a saving Grace. Susan found renewed faith, hope and determination to further pursue the very reason she is here—to use her voice to help others. A scholar of the performing and creative arts, Susan Toney is a singer/songwriter, recording and performing artist, actor and book author who has so much more to live for…so much more to say.
