FNS: 4th of July

Fun.: "Carry On"

I hope you all have an amazing weekend, and thanks for going along on my 4th of July ride. Have a blast, my friends. NIte!

Well I woke up to the sound of silence 
The cars were cutting like knives in a fist fight 
And I found you with a bottle of wine 
Your head in the curtains 
And heart like the Fourth of July 

Tonight's show is all about freedom. Our freedom to say what we think, and to live our lives with happiness. All of this being a result of why we celebrate July 4th in America. Anythng goes, okay?

That being said, REQUESTS are everything tonight! This works when we know what your songs are that celebrate freedom and life and make you happy. Happy 4th to the USA!

Talk to me about freedom here.
I love this song, but we seem to have different views on the meaning.
Or just talk to me. I like that too.

Look at all that shines
Baby's down on the world and she knows it
If your spirit's running
Why don't we make it in the rain like we used to
We run
We hide
We wait and we want
The good life
Aw sure
You're right
This ain't, the good life
I'm, elegantly wasted

Where Every Night Is Friday Night. Best Music Videos of the 80s to Today's Great Songs. 80s Friday Night show starts at ...10PM New York | 7PM Los Angeles | 3AM London
Introduction
Welcome to FRIDAY NIGHT SESSIONS - Where Every Night Is Friday Night. Since October 2011.

Over 3 1/2 years ago, I got a wild idea in my head to regularly post fun 80s videos every Friday night. I started to call my regular gig - Friday Night Sessions. It has been a lot of fun taking requests on all sorts of dance videos, top-40, pop, pop-rock and more. I realized (though a friend) that maybe we could do this a bit better via a PAGE. This is that page, and initially asked six friends to co-manage this page with me.

We've kicked the idea around a bit of having Theme Nights, and I like that a lot. So, look on this page for all announcements about #fridaynightsessions and we're glad you're here!

We're adding new shows to the schedule in 2015 and hopefully there will be other exciting changes to announce. Our last big announcement was that John Voshell joined us and launched his Wednesday night Indie Music show. It's fantastic, and you'll discover all sorts of new musicians you never knew about!

-Sean Cowen, Founder of FNS

Our Page Managers In No Particular Order:


Ross Fergus ...         Andrew Coffman ...  Yonatan Zunger


Matt Tuomala ...       Johnny Zed ...            Samuel Vain


>>>>>>>>>>  We've just added a PUBLIC CALENDAR for FRIDAY NIGHT SESSIONS here:
_________________________


Ryan Van Sickle

Ryan is thinking about hosting an American Folk Roots Songbook night or something like night.  Old folk/blues to modern folk folk/rock.

Writing songs of character and integrity that resound the timeless and universal, Ryan Van Sickle uniquely translates the themes of love, war, life and death and the epic and mundane struggles within.  Following in the steps of the masters from his native Canada, Ryan draws on the influences of Neil Young, Daniel Lanois, and Leonard Cohen alongside American greats Bruce Springsteen and Emmylou Harris.  With the release of his latest album Ghosts Of The Brokenhearted on iTunes - http://goo.gl/9VZ00 , and on Google Music - http://goo.gl/89RIf, Ryan emerges as a powerful singer songwriter; asserting prowess in building a lyrical highway with a strong voice to carry his listeners on the journey. View his website at ryanvansicklemusic.com

Roger R. H. King
Roger genuinely loves many genres of music as long as it is, as he says, "Worth crankin' up!" Raised on the the sounds of Motown, "Classic" rock, Classical music, R&B, and jazz, he's played drums and sung in numerous unknown bands ranging from blues to country, and jazz to rock.  As a symphonic percussionist, he's also played with many orchestras and other musical productions. A music major in college, he's also been a "personality" on Classic Rock radio, as well as a party DJ in the Springfield area.  Roger's submissions to our page will show off his broad range of tastes and diversity, as he also attempts to educate our audience with facts, stories, and insights about the artists and music.

"I am really looking forward to getting to personally, and musically, know all of you as we head off on this G+ musical journey. Peace, Love, and Crank It!" - RRHK
 
Branden Haize 

Branden Haize first joined Friday Night Sessions as a volunteer "music historian", supplying facts and trivia to videos posted during the Friday night time slot. Soon, he became an official page manager himself, and the host of his own show, Lost in the Haize. When does it air? It's a spontaneous thing, whenever the mood strikes him (and whenever the forum isn't being used by someone else). Branden is also the author of "Darwin's Playground" and "The Prospector", two independent web-series available to read at BrandenHaize.com.

Andrew Coffman

Andrew is a long time listener of FNS  and has an abiding interest in remixed songs, as evidenced by his own page +All Remixed Up , but his tastes run the gamut of the entire musical spectrum.

While Andrew may not play any instrument beyond the radio or been involved in the music industry, he has been on 5 of the 7 continents, helped build bridges, dams and refineries where no human has business being at and flown enough miles to make it to the moon and back.

Look for him to roll out the eclectic, the remixed and great tunes you forgot you loved in the wee morning hours of West Coast and get ready to whet your whistle for a midnight snack that's tasty and exotic.


Sarah Lynne aka Metalynne

Metalynne or Sarah Lynne, labels herself as a tried and true metalhead. She listens to all sub-genres of metal from heavy metal to metalcore, anything she can bang her head to. Metalynne has a show here on FNS called Subdural Hematoma. Her show is dedicated to all things metal music related. She has been known to bring the studio to flames and we have even had to call security a few times because of her antics.

Look out for her every Sunday night to bring you the most face melting metal show she can. And as Metalynne likes to say, "Horns up! \m/"


Samuel 'Zenman' Vain

Samuel ‘Zenman” Vain was born and grew up in California, he’s a Metalhead to the core that evolved into it. His childhood in the 70’s and teens in the 80’s allowed him to witness the evolution of Rock & Roll into Hard Rock and then Metal. He’s a bit on the crazy side being an accomplished artist so you can never tell what video he might post.

As a youngster he loved the Beatles, Jimmi Hendrix, Kansas, Foreigner, and Black Sabbath in addition to many more. As much fun as they were he needed more guitar and drums as he grew. Suddenly there was Van Halen, Scorpions, Iron Maiden, Stormtroopers of Death, Alice Cooper, and this tape he was given in Los Angeles by a guy in a band that he wore out but never could remember the band name. Hearing ‘Hit the lights’ for the first time in 3 years solved that mystery, and the search for more music like that was on. When Slayer came it was like seeing a divinity!

Now that there are bands that can cause aneurisms there is blood all over his walls when it suits him but there is a chill and romantic side to watch, they pop in randomly. He can be sweet, dark, funny, and very serious, but it’s the eccentric parts that make his mind fun.
