Ladies and Gentlemen almost two years ago, during my second live appearence and interview on Mike Stark's "Rock 50" Show on WPMD, I asked MIke if I could play a set of some other unsigned artists music. After the second song, Mike asked me if I wanted to do this, like once a month. Well, you know the rest of the story, that day TEE-M's UNsigned Music Show was born. Same day Mike's other guest in the studio was none other then Wayne Kramer of MC5.
Since then, you could say, Mike and I have been kicking out the jams for the UNsigned artists...and on Saturday April 15th 11am-1pm (pst), we'll be celebrating the second anniversary, with a very special, "TEE-M's UNsigned Music Show, Thanks The Beatles" Thirteen artists each singing a Beatle tune acoustically, with an All-Star UNsigned finale of "IN MY LIFE" (the song that I was so honored to sing at John Lennon's 25th Memorial at Capitol Records) I have asked the artists, to keep their song a secret, until they step up to the mic and start singing.
Beatles collectively and individually were very instrumental in kicking me to pick up the guitar, write and sing, back when I was growing up in Karachi, Pakistan. I never thought that I'd be co-hosting a radio show in America, not just a show but about the UNsigned artists...wow!! Hence a big thanks to John, Paul, George and Ringo!
To celebrate this special moment, Black Sabbath's drummer and Hall of Famer, Bill Ward (yes! he's a big Beatle fan too) will be coming out to the studios to sing one of his favorite Beatle tune and hang with the UNsigned artists.
