Ok you know the classic old school party scene, Marvin Gaye's "Got to Give it up" on the stereo, folks bumpin' and yelling out "party over here!" Well I wasn't actually old enough to hang out, but me and the other kids that were being baby sat would sneak out at different times of the night and peep the vibe. I didn't really understand what was going on, but these parties had a profound impact on my musical development.
When I first started to collect music I had all of these melodies and hooks in my head that I had to connect to an actual song title and artist. In 2000, I started a radio show called the s.o.f.a.r channel and the rest is history.
