Hello Music Lovers- 

It’s human nature. 

You hang out constantly with your best friend and you’re always at his family’s house. 

Before you know it you’re flirting with his cute sister. 

Sometimes she even answers the door, teases you with her smile and eventually that certain urge and feeling takes over and you kind of forget you’re there for her brother! 

Here’s such a tantalizing scenario in Song Snatch #117 from the great Compton, CA R&B singer TQ and his honest admission of love and lust to his friend featuring rapper, Too $hort, “Your Sister”! 

(episode running time- 5 minutes and 33 seconds)

SONG SNATCH #116- "You Suck" by Consolidated & The Yeastie Girlz

With all this talk of BJs, I figured I'd be fair and balanced and post a tune for the ladies!

Hello Music Lovers- 

Anyone that knows anything about intimate relationships between a man and a woman, knows it’s a two way street and what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. 

In other words, if you want to receive, you better learn to give! 

Take a cue in Song Snatch #116 from the radical activist industrial/hip-hop group Consolidated together with the all-female punk trio from SF, The Yeastie Girlz, to lay it out loud and clear in their angry proclamation, “You Suck”! 

(episode running time- 5 minutes and 36 seconds) 

(You can hear more of Yeastie Girlz songs at www.myspace.com/yeastiegirlzofficial, and learn more about Consolidated at Wikipedia and download their songs at itunes, amazon, and wherever fine music is sold.)

SONG SNATCH #115- "Blow Me (You Hardly Even Know Me)" by Red Peters + Todd Rundgren

Hello Music Lovers- 

It was 30 years ago this summer that my producer Eddie Grenga and I sat down and penned “Blow Me (You Hardly Even Know Me) the very 1st song I ever recorded as Red Peters. 

About a year ago or so, I learned from fans that songwriter and producer Todd Rundgren was performing the song live in concert with his band on their American tour. 

Since I had just undertaken a new project collaborating with other artists, I asked him if he wanted to record a duet of the song. 

He agreed and before you knew it, Eddie had written and produced a new arrangement and Todd was singing his part in Hawaii and me mine in Boston! 

I even had Eddie locate 2 of the original surviving members of the Alan Pinchloaf Singers who sang on the 1st recording. And when they made their way into the studio that day, one with a walker and the other with an oxygen tank, I knew this session was going to be extra special! 

I cordially invite you to tune into Song Snatch #115 to hear my hot, new release that when it comes out I hope it makes a splash, my new duet with Todd Rundgren, “Blow Me (You Hardly Even Know Me)”! 

(episode running time- 5 minutes and 22 seconds)

(You can hear more of my songs at www.redpeters.com, and Todd Rundgren’s songs at www.tr-1.com and download their songs, including the new "Blow Me" wherever fine music is sold.)
