Introducing Luxury Club With Ben “Trobro” Doherty

Photo of DJ Trobro - Ben DohertyBen “Trobro” Doherty is a former college radio DJ, Computer Engineer, and Music Director all at WSBF-FM Clemson. He’s been spellbound by electronic music, and college and community radio ever since a fateful sunrise drive while listening to Tycho for the first time. Before singularizing himself with the digital world slowly encapsulating him, he swears he got one last glimpse of the sun.

He ran several radio shows during his time at WSBF including Mollified, a long form ambient show; NOISE, a show that experimented and studied sound and noise, harsh, and soft; Shark Tank Block Party, a rotating electronic genre show that was always unpredictable, and, most recently, Luxury Club.

Tea Time Dec 6th: Artist & Art Educator, Lee Baumgarten

Photo of Lee BaumgartenIf you Google-Search Lee Baumgarten, a timeline will pop-up that reflects pages of articles, which leave a trail of evidence that he has and is always exploring new ways to connect and interact with others through the arts. If we could all view the world through an artist’s eye, what would we see and how would it change us? If you read Lee’s artist statement it may make you want to try. Lee states that, “beauty has a way of spilling out onto a table and etching its way into the heart. It is witnessed in a brief moment of harmonious balance in odds. It can be a notion between what is desired and what is curious. It is at the core of all aesthetics, that which make us human.”

I met Lee at his Pineville gallery in, let’s say, 1999 or 2000, and have been a friend and fan of his work since that time. Born in Charlotte, North Carolina, Lee has lived and produced his works in Ohio, New York, West Virginia, Florida, South Carolina, and North Carolina. His paintings, drawings and sculptures are included in corporate and private collections nationwide and are recently expanding abroad to Europe. Lee is presently creating a collaborative traveling art exhibit entitled “We See Heaven Upside Down” in tandem with “Moving Poets” artist MyLoan Dinh of Berlin, Germany. The work concerns modern day refugees and the journey and experiences of displacement. It is intended to promote dialog on a multi-national level. In coordination to this body of work, he is organizing an educational presentation- seminar/workshop to be offered through art & science institutions, colleges and foundations for art professionals and graduate students who intend to promote their work on a global scale.

I am very honored and excited to chat with Lee Baumgarten because he ALWAYS has a lot to say and offers great commentary on the life of a working artist. Join us December 6th at 6:30pm, as we delve into a “harmonious balance of odds” during Tea Time with Tenya LIVE on Charlotte Community Radio.

JAZZ LIVES!!! Dec 1st: Holiday Jazz – Featuring Trombonist Buff Dillard

Photo of Buff DillardWe will celebrate the Holidays throughout December on JAZZ LIVES!!! with CurtJazz. And we kick off our celebration in fine style on Thursday, December 1st with our special guest, trombonist Buff Dillard, who joins us LIVE from 7:00pm to 8:00pm on Charlotte Community Radio.

Born into a musical family, Buff exhibited an interest in singing, drums and playing brass instruments at an early age. By the age of twelve, the trombone had become his passion and he decided to focus on mastering the slide. As a student of Martin Luther King High School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, his gift allowed him to attend the Philadelphia All-City Jazz Academy. While there, he performed with the academy’s band, Pieces of a Dream, and the legendary Count Basie Band. He was also able to attend jazz workshops instructed by celebrated jazz trumpeter, Wynton Marsalis.

As a solo artist, Mr. Dillard has released a total of eight independent projects including his latest album Mr. Bonejazz and his Holiday themed EP Christmas Moments. Buff continues his career as a trombonist, performer, independent international recording artist, and CEO of Buff Dillard Music LLC.

During the show, we will talk about his music, his influences, his current projects, and we’ll play a few tracks from Christmas Moments that will help to get us all in the mood for the Holiday Season so join Buff Dillard and me as we prove that there’s nothing better than “Bone for the Holidays”.
