The Next Dave White Presents

Yes, Nov. 6 is Election Day. It’s also your first (but not last) chance to hear the new “Dave White Presents” with new music from Keith Emerson and stories of a rock ‘n roll pioneer!   

Reaching back to his ELP days, keyboard wizard Keith Emerson has just created something very different in prog rock history. Along with guitarist Marc Bonilla and orchestra conductor Terje Mikkelsen, Emerson has produced The Three Fates Project, a blending of rock and classical performances unlike anything you’ve heard before.

Using new technology, The Three Fates Project includes new versions of “Tarkus,” “Fanfare for the Common Man,” and “The Endless Enigma Suite” along with new music produced in ways Emerson, Lake, and Palmer  couldn’t do all those years ago. DWP gets really in depth with The Three Fates as we don’t just talk with Keith about his new album. Wes Britton also co-interviews Bonilla and Mikkelsen as they describe the challenges of integrating rock instruments into a 40 piece orchestra. Sound intriguing? How about a sample from the album especially edited for DWP?

 What do Carole King, Bobby Darin, Neil Diamond, Neil Sedaka, The Monkees, and The Archies have in common? Don Kirshner.

 Back in 1958, Don Kirshner had a bright but simple idea: teenage rock and roll fans didn’t want the music of their parents and grandparents. They wanted hits written by their contemporaries. So, co-founding Aldon Music in New York, Kirshner hired songwriters Gerry Goffin and Carole King, Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, Neil Sedaka and Howard Greenfield, and Jack Keller. For its five year run, Aldon was responsible for over 200 hits, and that’s no small feat.

 Rich Podolsky, author of Don Kirshner – The Man with the Golden Ear: How He Changed the Face of Rock and Roll, tells the full story in his book and shares many of the tales on DWP. Go inside the studio and learn how “Will You Love Me Tomorrow”, “Up on the Roof”, “Breaking Up Is Hard to Do”, “I Love How You Love Me,” and “Sugar Sugar” came to be. To spice things up, we’ll feature some brand new music from Mickey Dolenz—a country re-make of “I’m a Believer.”
