I listened to most of the new Michael Jackson "Xscape" CD on the way home yesterday and it's the closest thing I've heard to Michael at his peak in a long time. Even with the modern touches here and there.
The song I can't get out of my mind is a tune that's was around for a while before MJ got his hands on it called "Love Never Felt So Good," co-written by Paul Anka. Here it is with a nice tribute to Michael's incredible talent.
I've been in radio since 1981, starting on Cape Cod, and in Boston, Massachusetts where I grew up. (when The Sox and Patriots both broke everyone's hearts, and the Celtics ruled. Funny how things change.)
After 3 years in Las Vegas in the late 80's, early 90's I was looking for work and luckily found myself here in Cleveland in 1991, through some mutual radio friends. I got to play the hits as Jammin 92's Night guy until 1999, and met Britney Spears back when she wasn't making people gag.
After watching my former company screw up the Jammin' Oldies thing for a couple of years, I came to Majic in 2001, the best decision I ever made!
