    Act Locally, Dance Globally

    The booming voice of Bryon Patt is perfect for radio. It's energetic, crystal clear, and instantly likable, with the hint of a smile around the edges. Patt's voice has so much decibel-power that it carries well enough without the help of a transmitte...

    Sound Check

    A few weeks ago at Desperado's in Fort Lauderdale, the dance floor was a sea of black and white cowboy hats. Two-stepping, silver-tipped boots gleamed under the flashing red and yellow lights above. Denim-clad butts shook, swayed, and wiggled. The in...

    Easy Rider

    The Only Way to Live

    When Gary Numan first appeared in 1979, singing the chilly synth-pop song "Cars," he didn't look like a 21-year-old rock star. He looked like a flesh-covered robot. In the song's video, Numan wore a black shirt and red tie, his dark hair combed perfe...
