After a long hiatus it is time for me to step back in and spin a few tunes on Thursday night.

This show will feature a variety of genres and how they deal with the end of things.

Your optimistic host, +Andrew Coffman

"It’s important to put the emphasis on the positive aspect. I have learned that music helps a lot of people survive, and they want songs that can give them something. I guess you could call it hope." 

Maurice nailed it.

My brother, words cannot express what your life has done for mine. Our parallels and mutuals only serve to make it all go deeper as your words have helped me to survive, and to give me hope in my worst times, and to keep me up in my good times. With all of my heart and soul, I thank you. 

Good night.

All your dreams will come true, right away.

And we will live together, until the Twelfth of Never. Our voices will ring forever, as one.

Every thought is a dream, rushing by in a stream, bringing life to the kingdom of doing. Take a ride in the sky, on our ship Fantasii
All your dreams will come true, miles away!

Our voices will ring together until the Twelfth of Never.We all, will live love forever, as one!

Come to see, victory in a land called Fantasy. Loving life, for you and me, to behold, to your soul is ecstasy. You will find, other kind, that has been in search of you, many lives has brought you to recognize it's your life, now in review.

Come to see victory, in the land called Fantasy, loving life, for you and me, to behold, to your soul is ecstasy. You will find, other kind, that has been in search of you... Many lives has brought you to recognize it's your life, now in review.

The first of three from EWF that will end this night, and I've saved them for a reason. All of their music has touched and still touches me in different ways, but these three cut just a little deeper.

A deep one and the title track from their 1975 album (as well as an extremely low budget movie featuring the band and starring Harvey Keitel)...

#EarthWindAndFire #EWF  
This one... yeah...

When you feel down and out, sing a song, it'll make your day!
Here's a time to shout, sing a song, it'll make a way. Sometimes it's hard to care... sing a song, it'll make your day! A smile so hard to bear, sing a song, it'll make a way.

Maurice kept the lyrics of one of EWF's biggest hits simple: The joy and the power of song!

Recorded in 1979, this song is a unique one from EWF because it deals with heartbreak and love lost. It's also the only song on the album I Am that Maurice White didn't write, but he sure does sing the hell out of it, and it went on to win two Grammy awards and come one spot awayh fro hitting #1.

This one cuts extremely deep for me... the scars are still there... Maybe next Sunday, we'll hear a few more stormy cutters for Valentine's Day?

I know the feeling, +Randy Stokes. I think we'll be hearing the other one on the 14th, ... and then some.

Tonight, as one of my only means of paying my respects to Maurice White, I'm poking around in my R&B vault (and other places)... Stevie Wonder was a true contemporary of Maurice and I'd be remiss if I didn't play just enough.

“We knew they were going to do something to honor Glenn, as they well should, and our band decided they’d like to participate in it rather than watch someone else do it.” - Irving Azoff, Eagles longtime manager.

Too cool! Will this be this year's "Grammy Moment"?

Eagles founding singer, songwriter and guitarist Glenn Frey will be saluted during Monday’s 58th Grammy Awards ceremony by his bandmates as well as close friend and songwriting collaborator Jackson Browne.

This song soared to #1 on both the Hot 100 and R&B charts in '75 and was off the album That's The Way Of The World (previous post). While many hits of the disco era were fun but meaningless, Earth, Wind & Fire considered all their songs meaningful, and this one projects a positive message in a turbulent time.

Maurice said, "By adopting a totally positive approach to our life, we can reflect this in our music. We won't allow it to reflect any negative vibes or thoughts. All our music is 'up' in the sense that it is intended to bring people to that state. It is truly gratifying to know that we are finally getting to people, they are accepting us."

And accept them they did. The album was a huge hit, capturing the sound of the band's successful stage show on vinyl and going to #1 on the album charts, making them the first R&B group to top the US album and Pop charts at the same time. It was also the biggest seller for Columbia Records in 1975, and helped prove that black bands could sell albums, not just singles... something Maurice took a lot of pride in.

Shining star for you to see what your life can truly be.

In the 1960's and early in his career, after studying at the Chicago Conservatory of Music, Maurice White found himself working as a session drummer at Chess Records where he played with Etta James, Ramsey Lewis, Muddy Waters, and Buddy Guy among others.

In 1966, he joined up with the Ramsey Lewis Trio where he sharpened his Jazz chops before leaving in 1969 to begin the band that would become Earth, Wind, and Fire.

Ramsey and Maurice remained great friends through the years, with Ramsey appearing and recording with EWF as well as even covering some of the band's music.

Below, one of the biggest Jazz hits ever...

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
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 - , and on Google Music -, 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

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

M is here to blow off steam
M may or may not do requests 
M basks in the +1s and shares (this helps if you want a request)

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.
