"Hello. Yeah, it's been a while. Not much. How 'bout you?" (70's music trivia quiz: Who's the artist/song?) Well, there it is. The list of stations currently playing Precious Seconds as of press time. If anyone actually witnesses a station spinning a cut from the album, please let me know. Maybe they're all lying to me. To get your favorite song played and hear for yourself, give 'em a call. I'll let you know about new stations as they happen. Of course all this airplay means I'll be inviting myself over to some of these stations for as visit. Watch for on-air appearances in your area.

 

And yes, the website is finally done: www.michaelmassimo.com. Where to go for all things Massimo. Link directly to Musi-Cal for the latest show info, or to any of four CD websites where you can get stuff and hear samples. There's even a listener survey so you can tell me what you really think (be gentle).

 

In other news, a review of the new CD can be found in the latest edition of the online music magazine, Rant n' Rave. Just click on www.rantnrave.org. . And soon Precious Seconds will be available in store all across the Northeast. (Which also means in-store performances; I will, of course, keep you in the loop.)

 

And by the way, the song quoted above is "I'd Really Love To See You Tonight" by England Dan and John Ford Coley. If anyone wants to play "70's music trivia" email me your questions. The first person to stump me gets a free t-shirt.

How To Make A "Precious Seconds" Clock

 

I'm sure by now you've seen the images of broken clocks in the artwork of the new CD. What you may not know is these clock still work! And the way they tell time is deceiving, the hands will always be in the right place but the numbers are shifted so that certain hours seem to be longer than others. Makes a great bar clock, An interesting trick to play on your drunk friends or on yourself if you're not really paying attention. And should you desire one for you very own, it's very ease to make one.

You will need: a very basic wall clock, scissors, Crazy Glue. 1) remove the clear face plate and discard, 2) pull clock hands, clock mechanism, and number plate off clock frame, 3) you should be left with one solitary piece of plastic - break it into 4-5 pieces, 4) cut the number plate to match the size & position of the pieces - back tape in place, 6) one piece at a time glue the clock pieces and mechanism together keeping in mind the hands have to rotate freely when they're stuck back on, 7) put hands back on, insert battery. Some bending of the hands may be necessary to clear clock shards & other hands (second hand may have to be sacrificed).There you have it . A new way to waste time.

 

REVIEWS: Rant n' Rave, Dec.'98 Songwriter's Monthly

 

Michael has stumbled upon brilliance with his latest album. His incredible attention to song details have this album laced with an abundance of exciting musical moments and passages. He has questioned every note for its appropriateness in serving the song and as a result has ended up with an album where nothing is in excess and nothing is missing. From the jagged guitar hooks and syncopated rhythms that snare you on the title track, to the solid story in tracks like "Lucky" and "Touch The Sky" that captivate your attention, this is a fulfilling album. This could be the album that takes him to the next level. Savor it. - Allen Foster
