Regardless of our chosen profession, most of us work with Numbers, Facts, Words, and Hands.You've probably never thought about it. I certainly hadn't, until I was talking with my 13-year-old grandson, Gideon, trying to convince him to elevate the quality of books he reads. Gideon is an exceptional storyteller and a surprisingly good actor for his age. Based on his natural proclivities, I am convinced Gideon will someday make his money with words. There are hundreds of ways to do it.I was about to list the careers that depend primarily on a practitioner's capacity to choose and use precisely the right words when it hit me: every endeavor requires the use of numbers, facts, words, and hands.Career choices fall into one of those four camps.Numbers. Facts. Words. Hands.Arrange those four in the order you prefer to use them. Your order of preference may not correspond with the order of your competence, but it usually does. We get better at the things we prefer, especially when we focus on them.Let's look at the careers where the language of Numbers stands on tiptoe and shouts “Look at me!”Data scientist, structural engineer, statistician, bookkeeper/accountant/CPA, insurance company actuarial, theoretical physicist, astrophysicist, (pretty much any kind of physicist,) and the list goes on.And in which politesse is the finesse of finicky Facts essential to success?Teacher, lawyer, doctor, policeman, consultant, inventor, and the list goes on.And what pursuits depend on your ability to muster and master Words that tickle the intellect and elevate the ears?Stand-up comedian, ad writer, politician, broadcaster, podcaster, online influencer, reporter, novelist, screenwriter, lyricist, and the list goes on.You didn't know lyricist could be a career? Bernie Taupin has made more than seventy million dollars writing lyrics for Elton John. Bernie doesn't write the music. Just the words.Now let's look at the careers that harness the Hands.Carpenter, plumber, artist, musician, masseuse, electrician, manufacturing technician, butcher, baker, candlestick maker. And the list goes on.No career relies on the use of a single category exclusively, but when you look at a career from a distance, it is easy to see that one of those four is used more often than the other three.I have no idea how you might use this information, but I felt it was an observation worth sharing.One final thought: I have known a lot of people who followed the advice of their guidance counselor and chose a career based on how they scored on a standardized test. Tom was one of those people. Twenty-five years ago, he said,“I scored high on math skills so they convinced me to major in math in college. I graduated and got a job with a bank and was very successful but not happy. Then one day I realized that I hated math and had always hated math and was an idiot for listening to my guidance counselor.”Tom left banking to become an ad writer and became even more successful than he had been as a banker.And Tom was a lot happier, as well.If you took a moment to arrange Numbers, Facts, Words, and Hands in the order of your preference, indy@wizardofads.com would like you to share your list with him, along with anything else you would like to add.I told him you said aroo.He says aroo to you, too.Roy H.

We are back OwlHeads for a brand new season of rollicking antics! I'll be playing even more rare discoveries from my demo song archives… the journey into the vault will go even deeper! I'll be playing a very unusual track written with Bernie Taupin that eventually led towards the recording of his solo album “Tribe” - “White Boys In Chains”.. now there's a title for ya! I'll spin a demo written with soul man Paul Young; of all the tracks I wrote with Paul, this remains a favorite of mine that eventually made it onto his album “Other Voices”. I do love this demo. Can't resist playing you another ghost story of mine - you know I'm a sucker for the mists rising over the desolate moors. And I'm thrilled to discover a truly rare demo written in the 70s with songwriting partner Brian Fairweather that succinctly illustrates our respect and deep love for American soul music of that era. Incredibly, this particular demo was produced by Tim Friese-Greene - the musician and producer renowned for his work with the band “Talk Talk”…. who'd have thought. During the proceedings I'll take a moment to talk about all the bass players that influenced my career growing up. I'll rap about how I studied, emulated and learnt from the vinyl records these masters played on…. eventually becoming a pro bass man myself. I was surprisingly moved by talking about this apprenticeship period of my life… Within the various retro rarities I'll be playing today, I'll take a moment to pay tribute to a fine American songwriter who we sadly lost recently. The great Jon Lind. I wrote with Jon when I first came to the US and he was seminal in helping me break in America as a young songwriter. It feels special here today to reminisce about my great friend. So join me you feathered beauties as we start off a brand new season I'll try and make it good one! Martin

Radio Owlsnest Episode 38 - THE END OF YEAR SHOW! ‘Where did the time go, my noble OwlHeads? Another year has passed, another season has flown by (notice the pun), and here we are again - a year older, but as all “OwlHeads” know, we are a year wiser. I wanted to pull out all the stops for this festive extravaganza. Hence, some ridiculously rare demos will be revealed. I'm gonna spin an unheard, much requested song written with Bernie Taupin, “Welcome To The Retrohip” - now there's a title! It was a track destined for my second solo album, “In The Temple Of The Muse”, but somehow was left on the cutting room floor. You'll hear the studio live version. I've dug deep into the archives to play song demos from the technicolor-crazy 80s and the naughty 90s… tracks I was myself surprised to find, and I was suitably impressed. I have an emotional moment playing a song and demo I wrote and recorded with the great Maurice White of Earth, Wind and Fire… his voice struck home with poignant, soulful beauty. I was touched big time remembering him, particularly at this Christmas period. And a song written and performed with the mighty songwriter, Clif Magness (a song we penned with Michael Jackson in mind), will be spun as a ‘kindred spirit' to Maurice's emotional uplifting rendering. A rarity of rarities debuts as I play a song I wrote for the female band “Wild Orchid”, featuring the enigmatic, glamorous “Fergie” singing lead vocals. These girls brought bagels to my home studio during the writing sessions…. fond memories of being ‘mothered' and cooked for just before Fergie joined “Black Eyed Peas”. In between these musical fancies, I'll liberally disclose the facts about my youthful soccer/football career when I dabbled seriously in becoming a professional player with Southampton FC. A new track from a pagan folklore Christmas album I'm forever working on will be aired, and YES, what you've all been waiting for - Pagey becomes a crooner! I'll play a new half baked track I'm working on which encompasses the zeitgeist of Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra…. Cigarette in hand, glass of wine at the ready - romance is ignited! I want to thank you “OwlHeads” for another fine vintage year of songwriter podcasts. You've made it all worth it - couldn't do it without you. Fly high - enjoy

En tant que chanteur de Queen, Freddie Mercury n'aimait pas trop parler de lui, mais lorsqu'il lance sa carrière solo en 1985, il lève un peu le voile sur certains traits de sa personnalité.

Radio Owlsnest Episode 37 Gather ‘round, “OwlHeads”, gather around; it's time for another spectacular! This month's effort has a distinct feline flavor about it - my deep love and respect of cats permeates the whole proceedings. In particular, we will touch upon the brilliant art work of Louis Wain. I've recently been hugely inspired by a movie about him called, “The Electrical Life of Louis Wain”; his characterizations of the “furry tribe” are just iconic and magical. Hence, some of my song demos I play you today will be influenced by the animal kingdom. I will touch upon the 80's as well with some considerable gusto. I'll be playing some definitive vintage home demos I recorded during that technicolor period. One such very rare track that I penned with Bernie Taupin will be given its first ever airing - a song called “Union Jack” that I totally adore. It reeks of that vibrant era, when synthesizers ruled the world and we lost all fashion sense. I feel Bernie is at his lyrical best on this home 8 track recording. Within the frenetic pace of the show, I'll try and inject a little personal fact finding history with the story of the early pro bands I played in… my apprenticeship as a bass player that eventually led to me becoming a songwriter. Glorious mythological stuff! So join me for “The Electrical Life of Pagey”, and Let's have some fun! Martin

Somehow the “bottom end” doesn't get enough justice, but in this show we'll show it some well deserved reverence. I'll start off proceedings with a brand spanking new song which highlights my rhythm section playing with the great drummer Trevor Thornton. It's hard to believe we began playing together back in the 70s. I'll spin an outrageous demo I wrote for the well endowed page 3 girl, the irrepressible Samantha Fox. I'm being rather brave here because this highlights the manic, high energy, youthful “Pagey” ... an irrepressible creature himself from the distant past - when supersonic tempos ruled the world! It's a treat to play you the original cassette demo of the first “Q.Feel” single, “Doctor on the Radio”; The song that launched a thousand ships … I mean launched my professional songwriting and recording career. I'll introduce you to Chris Sutton, a singer that truly knocked me out - reminding me of the best of Alison Moyet and George Michael before he vanished into the ether - his apparently short career becoming an enigma. I'll play you a very rare 8 track Fostex demo we did together. Where is he now? Along with various other vintage tracks from my songwriting vault, I'll attempt to enlighten you regarding some little known facts about myself ... hard liquor is definitely mandatory at this point. And I'll play a special little demo of a song recorded by “Starship” that I wrote with Bernie Taupin (a personal favorite of mine) that conjures up a romantically dark story, haunted on the periphery by the band's own San Francisco home. So please be my guest today for episode 36

RECAST:  ( Episode #45) Elton John — “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road”September, 1973Elton John's seventh studio release is considered his best by many. The double album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road contains many well known hits including the title track, the Marilyn Monroe-inspired “Candle in the Wind,” and the 11-minute epic “Funeral For a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding.” Elton John initially intended to record this album in Jamaica, but political instability and the upcoming Frazier/Foreman boxing match caused the production to be moved to Chateau d'Herouville in France.Friend of the Show John Lynch returns to help us showcase this monster rock album from 1973.All the Girls Love AliceThis deeper cut in a minor key deals with prostitution and lesbianism. Tempo changes between the verses and chorus with a groovy fuzzy guitar distortion give this track its distinctive sound. Liberty music was originally trying to get John and writer/partner Bernie Taupin to write songs for other artists, but they decided to write it for themselves.Saturday Night's Alright for FightingThis well-known track was inspired by Taupin's experience in local pubs as a lad — it was banned on a number of radio stations because of fears that it would inspire violence. At age 15, Elton John was actually playing in pubs.Goodbye Yellow Brick RoadThe title track hearkens to a simpler childhood time, removed from celebrity and high society. Reginald Kenneth Dwight would change his name to Elton John inspired by two blues players he liked.Grey SealAnother deeper track from the album is driven by piano riffs and interesting key and tempo changes. If you don't understand the lyrics to this song, you're in good company - Elton John doesn't understand the lyrics either!ENTERTAINMENT TRACK:Super Friends Theme SongThis staple of Saturday morning cartoons featured DC superheroes...“Meanwhile, back in the Halls of Justice...”STAFF PICKS:Looking Glass - “Jimmy Love Mary-Anne”  Wayne brings us the yacht rock this week. If you think this sounds like "Brandy," there's a reason for it. This is their follow-up top-40 hit. Story songs like this were popular in the early '70's.The Edgar Winter Group - “Free Ride” Bruce's staff pick brings the boogie from the debut album from The Edgar Winter Group. Ronnie Montrose and Rick Derringer were also on this album.Jim Croce - “Bad Bad Leroy Brown”Special Guest Host stepping in for Brian, John Lynch introduces another storytelling song with amazing lyrics like, "badder than old King Kong, and meaner than a junkyard dog." Unfortunately, Croce would die in a plane crash in this month.Chicago - “Just You 'n' Me”Rob takes the tempo down with a horn-driven hit. This was the second single released from "Chicago VI." The song was inspired by an argument that trombone player James Pankow had with his girlfriend - shortly thereafter his wife.LAUGH TRACK:Bobby "Boris" Pickett and the Crypt Kickers - “Monster Mash”Ahead of Halloween 1973, this song was moving up the charts. Originally released in 1962, the song was re-released in 1973.

”Glory be to all “OwlHeads” - we gather here today to continue our investigations of “Pagey's” songwriting career. We start the show with a demo I wrote with Billy Burnette who had just joined Fleetwood Mac in the 90s… this very rare demo was aimed squarely at the Fleetwood Mac aesthetic; California here we come! I'll spin an early demo I wrote with Bernie Taupin around the time I wrote “We Built This City” and “These Dreams” with him. Although it's a technically-challenged vintage home recording, I love this obscure Taupin/Page track. It definitely has a Tears For Fears thing about it… I was writing songs around the Michael Jackson “Thriller” period, when ghouls and ghosts and zombies were all the rage (when were Zombies NOT the rage ???). I'll spin a demo Melissa Manchester recorded that I penned with Jon Lind called “Night Creatures”, on which I display my “Ghostbusters “

1990. Well it certainly was time for the guru, but as the first year of the new decade was drawing to a close, it was time - a little time, if you will - for so much more. And as always, our favourite compilation series was there to capture it all.So volume 18 provided us with the NOW albums second numbered album of 1990 in the shape of big ballads, bigger ballads, pop, rock, dance, indie and even Timmy Mallet. Yes, all life forms were present and correct! Elton was BACK and, with Bernie Taupin, scoring his biggest hit in years (and a first solo No1!). Sinead was rewriting the Prince songbook and music video like no one else could, William Orbit was quietly ushering in the rest of the decade with some fascinating rhythms and Kylie was not only sidling nicely alongside her then boyfriend Michael in INXS, she was riding on the love train somewhere back in time.There were remixes and reissues aplenty too; best of albums for PiL and Talk Talk alongside (are we allowed to say indie dance?) excursions from The Cure, Sting and Suzanne vega were reminding us that the 80s were still a force to be remixed with.And so to step back in time to NOW18 in this episode we are joined by film and TV music supervisor Lucy Bright. Lucy started out at Mute Records working with artists such as Nick Cave and Depeche Mode, she then moved to Warner Classics for six years before leaving to manage composer Michael Nyman.In 2020 Lucy launched her own music publishing company, Bright Notion Music, which currently represents and nurtures some of the world's most influential artists and composers working today. And Lucy has music supervised some of the most critically-acclaimed British films and TV series of recent years: Samantha Morton's directorial debut The Unloved, Charlotte Wells' Cannes winning After Sun and both Shane Meadows's This is England ‘90 and The Virtues.So we can think of no one better to navigate us through an album chock filled with film and TV related tracks! Jeans! Pottery Wheels! Julia Roberts! Bridesmaids! Julian Temple in the desert! Tim Pope in a wardrobe! As well as deciphering these conundrums, Lucy also joyfully revisits her first (and only?) NOW album whilst delighting us with some wonderful and personal stories including guest appearances from Youth, James Mason, Prince (and a chocolate milkshake), Michael Hutchence, Shane Meadows and Holly Knight (she wrote some big songs, oh yes) to name but a few! 1990 - who has time for the guru with all of this going on?Jump straight back in to the wonderfully eclectic and memory packed NOW18!

On this week's episode, we discuss Elton John's third, 1970's Tumbleweed Connection. Elton John's second LP was a lushly orchestrated affair that launched Elton John's career into the stratosphere, largely due to the single "Your Song", which was a top ten single all over the world. Not wanting to be pigeonholed, Elton John, chose to make an album that was more stripped down.  There are elements of gospel, folk country, and even funk. Long time Elton John collaborator Paul Buckmaster's string arrangment are present, but they are more subdued and rawer. The sound of Tumbleweed Connection couldn't be more different than the album before it.  However, the thing that makes this album truly unique is the subject matter. The lyrics, by Elton John's songwriting partner Bernie Taupin, were influenced by both the westerns Taupin watched as a child, and the music of the Band. The songs center mostly on an idealized and romanticized version of post-Civil War America and the American West, one inhabited by cowboys, civil war vets, and gunslingers, but also one that focused on the simpler things in life. Tumbleweed Connection gives us a version of America  filtered through the eyes of two young Englishmen that is at once charming, beautiful, and poignant.

Welcome welcome welcome, my sweet dear OwlHeads, to episode 33. I love the number “3”, so this is a special little show for me. I start off with a Gaelic ode demo that brings to mind the “River Dance” aesthetic…. Ireland rules! Wear green while listening. I will also spin two homemade classic demos of songs that highlighted the US charts of the 80s! Still quite unbelievable to me that I penned these chart busting ditties. We'll touch upon the meaning of ecstasy … oooh … And we all want a bit of that, don't we! I'll spin a ridiculously rare Q.Feel track - You'll hear an 80s band working up a number live in the studio. Warts and all. Oh those technicolor 1980s. I will jam upon my new fascination - Quantum physics - which seems amazingly aligned with my deep love of Buddhism. Yes, crazy, but real synchronicity. You'll hear a very rare demo that I wrote with Bernie Taupin - a song that espouses our deepest eternal desires for “Love and Greed”. Surrounding these retro sonic escapades will be numerous rare musical musings from my VERY VERY VERY long songwriting career. History rocks! So please hang with me for a while - lay back - loosen up - and turn on. Let me inspire your inner creative demons …. and of course - angels. Martin

This episode is choc-a-block full of rarefied songs from my archives - a true antiquarian delight for those of you that appreciate the true retro vibes. I'll be spinning two collaborations with lyricist Bernie Taupin - one dealing with the tragedy of the 1986 space shuttle challenger… I was truly moved to find this special track; And I'll be playing a brand new piece that was inspired by the indigenous aborigines of Australia who believe that a meteorite named ‘Kulu' brought life to this earth - so get your experimental prog attitude on! I'm not a particularly political writer, but I'll spin a demo that reflects my distaste of world leaders and tyrants that go rogue; the catastrophic situation in Ukraine resonates here; and a beautiful soul track I wrote with the legendary and sadly missed Jon Lind will be given its first airing. I had great fun doing a “desert Island” disc section, where I choose the top ten albums I'd have to have with me if I was stranded; survival requires that a few more choices are thrown in for good measure… well, you can't just have ten can you! Peppering the proceedings will be many more unheard demos and rare versions from my song vault. It really is a retro-demo feast of a party! So join me for the fun gang… Martin
