    The Importance of Music in Our Society

    The Importance of Music in Our Society

    Over time, music has played a very important role in society. All cultures, villages, etc. they have their own musical manifestations, but while many of these manifestations have features in common, their differences are what makes them stand out. What is characteristic, unique, and different about each culture is what leads us to diversity and plurality.

    Channing Channels

    Channing Channels

    I love music! I love creating beats and music. It is something that I did day in and day out. And it's not for the money or to please anyone; It's my creative space to explore my creativity. My 'me' time. I'm an old school hip hop head so... alotta my beats are chopped up samples and loops, ala Pete Rock, Madlib or Dilla. When i do original compositions, it a bit more electronic with a touch of hip hop. Dabrye and early FlyLo is what i aim for, but it my own thing. (Link below if you wanna know more about Dabrye)

    It Came To Me In A Dream

    It Came To Me In A Dream

    Let me start from the very beginning. I have always had music around me. My mom introduced me to the music shows on PBS which was channel 13 in Ct the state I was born and raised in. I remember watching Arthur Fielder and The Boston Pops on TV. I remember watching Pavarotti sing with such splendor and Kathleen Battle with the passion of any Rocker I may have fallen in love with. I grew up with Motown ,R&B, Soul, Country, Rock, Jazz, Reggae the world of music. I also sang in chorus throughout my school years from elementary to high school. During my younger years I did try to play musical instruments but I did not have the support or encouragement to do so. I tried the flute and violin. My great grandma brought me an acoustic guitar and the man in the store said I was not strong enough to play so I never tried. I was under 7 years old. Being a musician was my dream so I took to singing. Growing up in New Haven Ct I began following a certain DJ. Dr James Jordan aka Jazzy. He was a DJ at WYBC FM the college radio station at Yale University. That was where I first heard him and I followed his career to WNHC AM and FM until he moved on to work in the music industry. I met my mentor when he was program director at WNHC AM. He was at my school Hamden High School for career day when I was a Jr. That was when my dream changed to being on the radio. I would be years later while working as a classroom aide helping with children that have special needs when I would finally work at an Urban Contemporary Radio Station in High Springs FL in 1998. The call number was 100.5 FM. It was the only Urban station in the area covering Lake City FL to Gainesville FL. That station was owned by Mr. Martin. He was a friend of my teacher that I worked with. I loved my day job don't get me wrong but working at that radio station was the first time I ever worked at a place and it did not seem like work. I was the person that recorded the six our show that was used when the station would go into automation. I also came into that job when Mr. Martin had decided to sell the station and get out of the radio business in our area. We have not had a good Urban Contemporary station in our area since. There have been a few people who tried locally in Lake City but they only lasted a very short time and then they were no more. I had longed to work in radio ever since that experience.

    Don’t let  nothing break your stride

    Don’t let nothing break your stride

    During the pandemic my husband and I have been listening to a lot of music to keep our spirits up. We have enjoyed rock, country, pop, soul, new wave, reggae, go go and R&B. One song in particular that motivates me personally right now is “Break my stride” by Matthew Wider. This catchy toon has a calypso beat and lyrics that stick in your head. The chorus has been my anthem for the past month.
