Sweet Static

Yes, another mp3 blog. Trying to share what I like with the world. The music here is for sampling only and are up for a limited time. It's simple really you see. If you like the music then go out and support the artists. Buy a cd/mp3/eight track, make a request on radio, see them live, tell others about it. This way this wonderful medium hopefully won't be stomped on.

Location: Windsor, Ont, Canada

Sweet Static is an mp3 blog that allows me to share the music I love and also to point out other cool things around the internet that catch my attention. It is also a place where I can talk about my radio show by the same name, now on Thursday nights from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm on CJAM 91.5 FM in Windsor, Ontario. Got something I should hear? Email me at sweetstatic @ gmail.com. All comments left here are emailed to my inbox, so you can get a hold of me that way also. You can also follow the show/me on twitter at sweetstaticcjam.

RIP James Brown

Of course everyone is coming out with their James Brown tributes and rightfully so. Now it's my turn.

My first real James Brown exposure was from Rocky IV with "Coming To America". You had to love the defeating of the evil Dolph Lundgren (well at least when you're 12 or so). Later I'd remember "Sex Machine" always playing at the disco/funk night at the bar.

The favorite James Brown memory though was Eddie Murphy doing James Brown Celebrity Hot Tub on Saturday Night Live. I had the old video tape of his best on SNL and right away this grabbed my attention. So thanks to the joys of You Tube, I can share this with everyone (or at least until NBC yanks it).
