A Breath of Fresh Air With Sandy Kaye
Tuesdays 1pm EST
and Fridays 8pm EST
The Rascals were the pinnacle of ’60s blue-eyed soul. It’s been said that they were the first rock band in the world. Led by Felix Cavaliere, the band drew much of its inspiration from British Invasion bands, psychedelic rock, gospel, and even a bit of jazz and Latin music. They were at their best on classic singles like “Good Lovin’,” “How Can I Be Sure,” “Groovin’,” and “People Got to Be Free.”
This week my special guest is keyboardist/singer Felix Cavaliere who shares tales of his musical journey. Felix talks about starting out with Joey Dee and the Starlighters, how the Beatles opened the door for musicians to write their own songs and about his and George Harrison’s involvement with gurus who kept them grounded.
It’s a fascinating story that highlights the fact that while others in his profession became synonymous with sex, drugs and anything goes, Felix Cavaliere reached the highest peaks on a message of peace, love and understanding.
This songwriter could have been made for A Breath of Fresh Air … he promises to make you and your listeners feel great.
