Rick Keene Music Scene -April Wine’s Co-Founder Jim Henman Has Had Enough of School Shootings and Is Doing Something About It !

Children are the future …

Imagine how the world will appear in ten years? Imagine there is no safe zone at all? Homes and schools – the two places where kids should feel safe. A pair of sacred turfs now affected more and more by gun violence in the United States of America.

One of the co – founders of April Wine, Jim Henman , has been affected by the senseless shootings south of the border. He was so profoundly moved by the acts of violence – he wrote a song.

The song ‘Some of These Children’ is a poignant and stirring take on events that have affected everyone. Parents, teachers, relatives and the entire world.

Uncomfortable numb as they walk and continue their lives in shock and disbelief.

Jim Henman is donating fifty percent of all sales from the song to The Boys And Girls Club of Greater Halifax. This is a start to not only help the kids in Nova Scotia – to also send a message globally that us humans have had enough.

Please listen below to my chat with Jim and hear the song ‘Some of These Children’. Please share this as much as possible …

Talk is cheap …

That is why most musicians put their music where their mouths or hands are. After all – talking about their craft helps yet unfortunately, does not pay the bills.

Rick Keene Music Scene Presents; ‘ This ‘ 70’s Show!

The 1970’s were a strange decade but a good one.

20482606-620-640x482

Mood Rings, Pet Rocks, Disco, CB Radios – it was a definable decade of different dimensions.

Leisure suits, shag carpeting and waterbeds. Trends which were all the rage while listening to The Carpenters, Heart, The Eagles, Peter Frampton  and hundreds of bands and solo artists who made their mark in that ten year period.

It was also a strange decade for commercials. Whether it was Barbara Streisand ( yes – Barbara Streisand) doing politically incorrect TV spots or little kids singing about Bologna, the 1970’s were – at the very least, entertaining.

Please listen below to some tunes and some clips from the ‘decadently’ delicious decade known for ‘Glam’ and ‘Punk’ Rock and everything in between.
