Where Is The Local Artist Airplay On KUBE93?

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

ericpowersToday I as write this Seattle radio station is holding it’s KUBE93 Summer Jam at the Gorge in Eastern Washington state. And again led by program director Eric Powers, they have blocked “Music Inner City TV” from covering the event.

Now check this out readers. We can cover many Hollywood events including a big golf event on Monday with a big red carpet and stars BUT Eric Powers has blocked us from covering the Summer Jam for about six years in a row. It is a outrage. It is wrong. And yes it is racism. Powers did buy me a nice sound system for my PC after I had a terrible fire in 2005. And I was and still am grateful for that.

But if you know me I have to stand up for my power106protestfolks. And truth be told KUBE93 is not playing local artists during primetime. That is between 3pm and 8pm. The only time KUBE93 plays local artist music is on Sunday night’s “Sound Sessions” at 11pm. That is when the least amount of people are listening to the radio!! Come on readers this is a damn shame!!

You know what readers? Cats in Los Angeles and the Bay Area got together and protested big time against Power 106 in L.A. (pic here in this article of the L.A. Power 106 protest) To say the program director PLAY LOCAL ARTISTS MUSIC!! And guess what? Now Power 106 and also KMEL in the Bay is playing local artists music during PRIMETIME!! Unlike KUBE93. And they will not until cats STAND UP AND PROTEST!! Make your voices heard!

Listen artists. If you plan out being somebody in the music game you have to get local radio stations like KUBE93 to play your music. If you just want to be what I call a “ghetto celebrity” then continue doing what you are doing.

Finally at the Summer Jam, AGAIN KUBE93 stuck local artists at SECONDARY stage to perform instead of performing on the MAIN STAGE AND THIS IS JUST PLAIN WRONG!! This local label Lane Records sponsored the secondary stage this year at KUBE’s Summer Jam. And they had to spend a pretty penny for that. ALL THE ARTIST THAT PLAYED OR WILL PLAY THE SECONDARY STAGE IS GETTING ZERO RADIO AIRPLAY DURING PRIMETIME ON KUBE93!!! WHAT IS UP WITH THAT??

The other day there was a so called “networking” event here in Seattle. Was standing up for local airplay on KUBE and other local stations Movin 92.5 and a new station 103.7 discussed? HELL NO! It is time for cats to get their head out of the Northwest clouds!! STAND UP AND BE COUNTED AND MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD!! Don’t be happy for where you are at. It is time for folks to STOP GIVING MONEY TO KUBE93 because when you do that they are running all the way to the damn bank OFF THE BACKS OF AFRICAN AMERICANS!! When a station that has NEVER had a AFRICAN AMERICAN DJ DURING PRIMETIME, something is VERY WRONG!!

I am not finished with this topic so turned readers.

I Saw Trouble Signs From The Start: Chad & Gold-Digger Evelyn

ARTICLE FROM nydailynews.com (Click here for full story)

I don’t know about you but I saw this happening a long time ago. I KNEW this so called relationship between reality tv motor-mouth Evelyn Lozada and NFL player Chad Johnson was not going to last ONE YEAR!! Man was I right. Johnson gets charged with “headbutting” Lozada. Yeah right! If you think that happned I have a bridge I want to sell in China.

Do not think this really happened readers. It is a bunch a BS! First of all, Evelyn is a loud mouth so called lady. All you have to do is watch “Basketball Wives” over and over. In the many many fights on the show she is the ring leader. Tossing fists, bottles, shoes and anything that moves.

When I first saw that Chad and Evelyn was a item I said no way! This cannot be real. It is not going to last. Lozada is a gold digger and Johnson was a high paid NFL star. He should have stayed away from her. I guess he fell for the sex right? Here is what is going to happened to Chad in my opinion. He will be broke soon. The Jets just cut him. Did he save his cash? No way. Dude was buying Bentley’s and Bugutti’s etc.

So let’s see what is going to happen to Chad Johnson. It will be very interesting to see. He made a serious mistake in hooking up with Evelyn. Is this all a set up for another reality show “Chad and Evelyn”? We will see.   Gordon Curvey

Mike Vick Proves He Is A #1 QB Again In Win Over Jags

ARTICLE FROM yahoosports.com (Full story click here)

Micheal Vick once again has shown football fans and just sports fans that he is one of the most dynamic athletes in ANY sport.

Vick was involved in four TD’s in the Eagles rout of the Jags 28-3 this past Sunday. The threw for three TD’s and ran for another. Some of the plays Vick made, no other QB in the NFL could have made. This is a fact.

He has shown us fans and even Philly coaches that he is a different player than the player a few years ago in Atlanta. He is a much smarter player. He is not taking off running all the time like he used to do because he is hanging in the pocket looking for a receiver.

Coach Reid made the correct decision in starting Mike Vick. But here is question for you guys. Why did the camera keep showing second string QB Kevin Kolb on the sideline all the time? I have never seen a second string QB get so much air time.

Kolb is not the QB of the Eagles right now. Micheal Vick. Coach Reid named Vick the starter. So why did the cameras focus on Kolb so much? I just don’t understand.

Next week is a game NFL fans will be watching. It is the Washington Redskins against the Eagles in Philly and the return of former longtime Eagle QB Donovan McNabb. This is going to be a great game!!

We will give you our views of the game next week. Shout out to Mike Vick for showing us he is a great NFL QB. It shows what second chances can do.       Gordon Curvey

Tiger’s Wife Elin Wants $750 Million In Divorce Settlement!!

ARTICLE FROM gossiponthis.com (Full story click here)

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

We all know about the situation with mega-star Tiger Woods and his wife Elin.

You must have been on Mars or maybe the moon if you don’t know something about it.

It has been a real big mess. Brought on by Tiger and his womanizing for female to female to female to female. You get the picture.

I have said here on “M.I.C News Magazine” that I really do not care about Tiger’s love life. I just want to see Woods win events and catch up the great “Bear” Jack Nicklaus. I watch golf ONLY when Tiger is near the lead and I watch tennis ONLY when Venus and Serena is playing.

But I took notice the other day that Tiger’s wife Elin may want a whopping $750 million in a possible divorce from Tiger. Word is Tiger is only worth $600 million so how is this only to work out??? PLUS she wants the kids too.

To me that is VERY VERY greedy on the part of Elin if this is true. Yes Tiger was big time wrong, BUT Elin in my opinion is wrong too for asking for so much.

Winfrey Plans New Night Time Show On Her New Network

ARTICLE FROM seattletimes.com (Full story click here)

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

Former guest on Seattle’s Music Inner City TV, media icon Oprah Winfrey plans to have her own nighttime program on her own new network OWN. The new network starts next year.

OWN will be in 80 million possible homes on cable. Her legendary program “Oprah” will end next year before the new network starts.

It is going to be very interesting to see what happens to Winfrey’s new network and how the different programs will do. We all know most of the things she does turns to gold. I am sure this will too.

Oprah being a African American female, will surely have a diversity of programs on OWN. Unlike every other cable network besides Black Entertainment Network.

In the almost 20 years of doing “Music Inner City TV” I feel getting the one on one interview with Oprah  was my top interview over James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Al Green, Chaka Khan and other legends. Because of the positive things Oprah and her people said about my program. Winfrey and her producers do not do anything without checking backgrounds and they found out about the positive things we have done in the Seattle area and decided we would obtain a interview with the Big O. (pic of Oprah and myself to the right)

We will continue to give you breaking news on the new OWN network RIGHT HERE on “Music Inner City News Magazine”

Starting this week please watch out new pre-recorded “Ustream TV shows. Every other day we will have new recorded Ustream TV shows with underground music videos that will not see on BET or VH1 or MTV. Plus urban sports news/entertainment news and more.

Just click “pre-recorded Ustream TV” link at the top of our home page and enjoy! Plus we will have cd giveaways and more!!

Interview With Snoop’s Mom & Aunt/Wonder’s Son Coming Up On M.I.C-TV

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

One thing for sure I am not Mr. Money Bags etc but the man above has allowed me to be here after a devastating fire in 2005 in which I lost EVERY THING to meet and interview a lot of great people and top of line entertainers and more.

Yesterday (March 30th) I interviewed the son of legendary entertainer Stevie Wonder, Muntez Morris. He is a singer who has a new single coming out featuring Snoop Dogg. You will hear the song soon on M.I.C-TV.

And speaking of big Snoop. Today (March 31st) I interviewed in person here in Seattle the mother of Snoop, Evangelist Beverly Broudus Green and Snoop’s aunt Erma “Dena” Varnado. Who also is a gospel singer. (pic to the left is Ms Varnado on the left and Evangelist Green on the right at our M.I.C-TV interview here in Seattle and below a pic of Mr. Morris)

Both of the interviews were very insightful and full of knowledge. The son of a legendary performer and the mother and aunt of another legendary performer.

I have been very lucky over the years to interview James Brown, Muntez’s dad Stevie, Chaka Khan, Al Green, Dionne Warwick, Ernie Isley of the Isley Brothers, Smokey Robinson, Carlos Santana,  and even media icon Oprah Wnfrey and many more.

And give a platform for upcoming artists in the Seattle area and nationwide.

Music Inner City News Magazine Bio: First Lady Michelle Obama

ARTICLE FROM wikipedia.com (Full bio click here)

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

Friday night I was watching Fox News and the “Hannity” program to see what Democrat he was going to beat up on or what negativity he was going to throw down on President Obama.

Then all of a sudden BAM!! He blasts Nickelodeon TV for giving First Lady Michelle Obama a award for the work she is doing. Hannity said the kids station is “leaning toward the left”  WHAT!!!!! I could not believe what I was hearing readers. It was a OUTRAGE!!

If Hannity is not beating up on the President, then he will pick his wife to beat up on. Since the President has been in office I do not think Hannity and others on Fox News or even others on the right, have said anything positive about the beautiful and intelligent and outstanding Michelle Obama.

Michelle is a GREAT First Lady and a GREAT role model for young girls and young ladies of ALL COLORS AND RACES. And also she is a wondeful mom to her kids. How cats like Hannity can say ANYTHING negative about her and a award she is getting is BEYOND ME!!!

Local Seattle Sports Radio Did Not Want Romar As Head Coach

I watched the University of Washington Huskies get beat by West Virginia I just though of a flashback of sports radio hosts here in Seattle not wanting Lorenzo Romar.

Few years ago the Huskies were looking for a new head basketball coach here in Seattle. A lot of names were mentioned at the time. One of which was current head basketball coach Lorenzo Romar.

Also mentioned was the head coach at Gonzaga, Mark Few and local high school star and at the time college head coach Quinn Snyder and others.

On local sports radio KJR here in Seattle, talk show hosts Mitch Levy and Dave “Softy” Mahler and Steve Sandmayer got on the radio and demanded the UW DO NOT HIRE ROMAR. They did it over and over and over again over the air.

They said “what has he done” as a head coach etc. Mahler was the most vocal. The day of the press conference at the UW naming Romar as head coach at the UW, Mahler was blasting the head people at the UW for hiring Romar. The Mahler and Levy at KJR wanted a guy like Snyder or Few. No Romar!!!

I went to the press conference to confront Mahler and ask him why is he there covering the press conference and asking questions when he was on the air blasting Romar the SAME MORNING!! I will admit things got a little heated between myself and Mahler. I did not like him being there acting like everything is cool when he and others at KJR did not want Romar as the new head basketball coach at the University of Washington.

Well a few years later, look at the University of Washington basketball program now!! They were in the Sweet 16!! And Romar has helped send players like Brandon Roy and Nate Robinson and Spencer Hawes to the NBA. Even former player Will Conroy has been up and down in the NBA. Lorenzo Romar has put the U-Dub on the NCAA basketball map.

I get kind of upset when I hear Levy and Mahler on KJR kissing his butt now, knowing they DID NOT want Romar as the head coach. I wish I had a recording of the negative stuff Mahler and Levy was saying about the possible hiring of Romar.

Anyway big shout out to Romar, Quincy Pondexter, Isaiah Thomas, Matthew Bryan-Amanings and the rest of the University of Washington Huskies for going all the way to the Sweet 16. You made us Seattle area sports fan happy!

And also watch ESPN “Right Now” for more news and video from NCAA basketball games and the march to the final four.

Young Seattle Fella Next To The President As He Signs Historic Bill

ARTICLE FROM seattletimes.com (Full story click here)

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

Today was a great day in American history when President Obama signed a health bill that has been talked about for decades and decades. What a day for America.

At the President’s side as he signed this historic bill was 11 year old Marcelas Owens who is from right here in Seattle, Washington. His mother lost her job, lost her health and I am sorry to say died.

The President had young Owens by his side at two events today regarding the health bill. I know this is something he will never forget the rest of his life.

What bothers the hell out of me is the right. And their racist tactics against President Obama. Calling him negative names etc. I am bothered by the far right “tea party”. Who are making people very very angry at the President to the point I think someone might try to kill President Obama. The far right is just that angry at the President.

NOT ONE Republican voted for the historic health care bill. NOT ONE!! This is crazy, this is a outrage. I am telling you readers. All the folks in the tea party, all the folks who did not vote for this new health care bill are speaking up LOUDLY and in very ANGRY ways because of one thing and one thing ONLY……it is because President Obama is the first African American President in our history and they CANNOT AND WILL NOT DEAL WITH THIS. Period. The far disagree with EVERY THING PRESIDENT IS DOING. EVERY THING!!!

I say a prayer for the President and his wonderful family EVERY NIGHT that they stay safe from the angry mob called the far right. What the far right is doing is VERY VERY DANGEROUS FOLKS. Please realize this. And if your a supporter of our President, please join me and say a prayer for him and his family every night.

Rapper Nas Going Back To Get High School Degree

ARTICLE FROM hwheard.com (Full story click here)

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

To many times we hear of negative stories concerning hip-hop and rap artists. To many times we read about rappers going to jail for different reasons like Lil Wayne, T.I and others. But here is a POSITIVE story.

Nas is going back to obtain his high school degree that he did not get when he was younger. This a very positive story.

He is saying to his fans and to youth all over that a high school education and a degree is important. And Nas is saying also that he is a role model and wants young inner city kids to take education serious and to go to school and get a education.

Yes we read stuff about Nas and his wife Kelis who is also a entertainer and their kind of nasty divorce in the news etc, but this story needs to be told too folks!!

As a OG in the music game, Nas is one of my favorite artists. Truth be told, he has not got the recognition he should get. Not to many cats can throw down lyrics like Nas. He tells a story about politics, relationships, life in the “hood” and more. Nas is a true hip-hop king!

Shout out to Nas for saying to kids, “Stay in school and get your education”.

Fox News Host Interrupts President Obama Over & Over In Interview

ARTICLE FROM huffingtonpost.com (Full story click here)

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

I just saw the so-called interview that this so called host on Fox News did with President Obama. I will not use the clowns name in my article.

It was one of the worst things I have seen on TV. This dude interrupted the President over and over and over again in this interview on Fox News. Look up the word disrespect. This is what the so called interview was.

If I was the President, I would have worked out of the room and ended the interview. This was planned by Fox News to try to make the President look bad.

In my opinion, President Obama did not have to go on Fox to pitch his health care plan. That would have been the last place I would have went.

Hannity, O’Reilly and others on Fox News treat President Obama like dirt. They don’t even call him President Obama. They call him ‘this guy” or “that guy” or even just “Obama”. But they will call W. Bush “President”.

And by the way, do you think Fox would have treated treated W. Bush in the manner they treated President Obama? The answer is NO!

Check out how the fella treated the President in the link above.

Watch for all the highlights of the NCAA basketball games as well as NBA and spring training baseball highlights, NFL news and more right here on ESPN “Right Now”.

President Obama Donates All Of Nobel Peace Prize Money

ARTICLE FROM cbsnews.com (Full story click here)

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

A big shout out to President Obama for donating all of the $1.4 million prize money from his win of a Nobel Peace Prize to 10 different organizations. This is a great move on the President’s part.

Some folks, mainly people on the right say President Obama should not have received a Nobel Peace Prize and truth be told President Obama was a little shocked but the bottom line is he did get it. So folks need to stop hatin on the President.

People like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham and Glenn Beck and others on the right want to blast President Obama every chance they get on every topic. He cannot do anything right in their eyes. Nothing.

Heck, Fox News does not even shows Presidential press conferences held by President Obama when at the same time, MSNBC and CNN show it. What’s up with that readers? Did they treat former President George W. Bush that way?

Do you think Fox News and others said anything about President Obama donating all his prize money to children and youth organizations etc? No they did not. This is truly truly sad. Again good looking out Prez for you donating your prize money to different organizations. That is a very positive move on your part.

Chris Brown Asks For Radio And Fans Support

ARTICLE FROM essence.com (Full story click here)

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

Singer Chris Brown is doing something he thought he would never do. And that is to ask for his fans support in buying his new cd and is also asking radio to play his music.

Ever since his problem of beating of singer Rihanna, he has had problems with his career.

It is for sure not like it was before the problems came down on him.

But in reality Brown cannot blame anyone but himself for his problems. He brought them on himself. He should have did what he did to the beautiful Rihanna.

Having said that, the question is this. Is it time for fans to forgive Brown and buy his music? Is it time for radio to start playing his music again? Truth be told I do not even hear any past Chris Brown music on the radio like “Kiss-Kiss-Kiss” and others. Do you?

Brown is doing every thing courts have asked him to do and more. He is even going to schools and community centers to talk to talk to youth etc.

What will it take for radio and fans to support Chris Brown like before the Rihanna incident? It does not help when programs on TV like “The Insider” and “Showbiz Tonight” continue to blast Brown when ever they can.

This story is very very interesting. Let’ see if the negative treatment of Chris Brown will continue. For his sake and career, I hope the negativity stops.

Stern Blasts Gabourey Sidibe About Her Weight

ARTICLE FROM huffingtonpost.com (Full story click here)

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

I CANNOT believe what so called “shock jock” Howard Stern said about Oscar nominee actress Gabourey Sidibe over the air about her size!

Please listen to his STUPID and yes RACIST comments about Ms. Sidibe by clicking the link above. I am real bothered by his comments. And I am bothered by his sidekick Robin saying what she said too! The question is WHY DID HOWARD MAKE THESE COMMENTS AND WHY IS THIS NOT BIGGER THAN WHAT IT IS?

First of all Gab will find work again!!! She is looking over new roles right now Howard!!! And not only that I am sure OPRAH AND SPIKE AND DENZEL AND TYLER PERRY and others will make sure she will have a job acting in a movie!!! What a STUPID thing to say that Gabourey will not find another acting job!!!

It hurts me as African American that Howard would say that about her and hurts me even more that Gab’s African American sista would also make negative comments about Sidibe!!!!

Gabourey seems like such a down to earth young lady with a great personality. Yes she is a large lady. This is true. And hopefully she will shed some pounds for her health. But when she is ready she will. She does not need CLOWNS like Howard and Robin blasting her on national radio!!

And here is a question. What kind of talent does Howard have or Robin have? I think the pitbulls that Shorty trains on “Pit Boss” on TV have more talent than Howard and Robin!!!!!!!!!!! All Robin does is laugh and makes a stupid comment after Howard’s stupid comments!!!! It is beyond me why he makes millions. He is a no talent!!

These comments made by Howard and Robin should make Sidibe work harder and show the fool and crazy Howard that she is going to work and she will continue to be a wonderful actress and a great lady.

What Robin should have said on the radio as a African American female is how proud she was of Gabourey to be nominated for a Oscar and how proud she was of Monique to win a Oscar!!!! Instead of the very negative things said. Those comments make me angry and also very very sad.

What Howard said about Gabourey Sidibe is FLAT OUT WRONG AND TERRIBLE! I hope you readers are as bothered as I am by his comments.

M.I.C. News Magazine Report: Snoop Dogg In Seattle

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

This past Friday and Saturday rap legend Snoop Dogg was in the Seatown to perform at the Showbox Sodo. And I want to tell you my feelings as a vet in this music game.

First of all I tried like hell to obtain a one on one interview with Snoop via the phone or in person but again got nothing as far as a interview. The only time I have interviewed Snoop was at the B.E.T. Awards in L.A. a few years ago for a minute.

I will keep trying and maybe the Dogg will finally do a interview with us at Music Inner City TV and Music Inner City News Magazine. I have enough videos by Snoop to do a great program. A “Snoop Dogg Special”

Anyway, the Friday show was sold out. I was told by Snoop’s manangement that I was allowed to cover the Saturday show to write about it here at M.I.C News Magazine.

I got to the venue around 10:45pm because I was told Snoop would hit the stage around 11pm. But I know the game folks. If I was told 11pm, that meant midnight. I was right. The crowd waited for more than a hour before Snoop finally hit the stage. He hit the stage about 12:10am But before that, the crowd started to boo. Then the lights finally went down and the show started.

Snoop’s set started with a short film with Snoop from one of his movies etc. That lasted about a minute or so and then Snoop pimped on stage. The crowd went CRAZY!

By the way, there was people of all races and ages at the show. Even little kids, which I did not understand with all the language being used by Snoop. There was people from 12 to 60 in the crowd.

Snoop started to perform all of his hits from “What’s My Name” from earlier in his career to his recent hits “I Wanna Rock” and “Gangsta Luv” The crowd was jumping and dancing to all of his hits.

One thing for sure, their was plenty of folks in the crowd taping some of the show on their cell phones so most likley you can go to You Tube and see videos from the Seattle show. I was not one of them doing that.

Since I was told no for a interview with Snoop, I went to the show to watch it and review it for the thousands of you who visit our site. I knew I was going to watch a vet at work and that is what I saw.

Snoop along with a few of his homies like Daz and Kurupt put on a show done by vets in the rap game. The same thing happened when I went to shows by Ice Cube and DJ Quik. All three of them can perform hit after hit for their fans unlike young performers who have only a few hits in their bag.

I think everyone left the Showbox satisfied. It was a good performance by a cat who knows what he is doing on stage to satisfy his fans. A big shout out to big Snoop Dogg for his longevity in the music industry. Keep doing what ya doing SD!!
