Mike Chimeri Show

Here are select airchecks of The Mike Chimeri Show – and all related Mike Chimeri airchecks (FM specials) – with vintage live reads, promos, and PSAs.

The shows are listed in reverse chronological order.  As you listen, keep in mind that I matured professionally and knowledgeably as the shows and years progressed.

I tended to make errors in some shows.  Corrections can be found at the bottom of this page.

NOTES & CORRECTIONS:
Shows #3 through #9 feature the last few minutes of Jay Mirabile’s show, “The Disco and Funk King Show.”  At the time, the show preceded mine.
The final score announcement at the beginning of the aircheck for Show #9 took place moments after Show #8.
I get many pieces of information wrong in these archives.  Peter White’s album “Glow” came out on October 2, 2001; Dave Grusin’s album “Mountain Dance” came out in 1979 (although it was released on Arista in 1980); and Yellowjackets’ album “Samurai Samba” came out in 1985.  “L’Arc En Ciel De Miles” by Incognito was on their album “Tribes, Vibes, and Scribes” in 1993.  David Benoit’s album “Christmastime” came out in 1983.  Alex Bugnon’s album “Love Season” came out in 1989.  “New
Math” by Dave Samuels was on his album “Living Colors” in 1988.  “That’s Right” by George Benson was on his album “That’s Right” in 1996.  Incognito’s “Beneath the Surface” album came out in 1997.  Nelson Rangell’s album “Destiny” came out in 1995.  “Bumpin’ On Sunset” by Wes Montgomery was on his album “Tequila” in 1966.
In #38, I say Pebble Beach Golf Links are in Carmel, California.  They are actually in Pebble Beach, California, which is why it is called “Pebble Beach Golf Links.”
In #57, I refer to the Rippingtons’ mascot as “Cheshire Cat or something.”  I would later find out he is called the Jazz Cat.  The Jazz Cat was created by artist Bill Mayer and used on the “Moonlighting” album cover.  He has since been drawn for every Rippingtons album cover.  He has even been animated for music videos such as for “Tourist in Paradise” and “Curves Ahead.”
In #79, I edited out an error where I call Johnny of Johnny and the Hurricanes “Johnny Winter.”  It’s the late Johnny Paris.  I would correct myself in a later show.
In #88, I said Marc Antoine was on guitar for “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely Tonight.”  It was actually Peter White.
In #118, I said that Jeff Kashiwa was on the saxophone for the Rippingtons’ song “First Time I Saw Her.”  It was actually the band’s original saxophonist Brandon Fields, who was a guest musician on that particular track.
In #120, I said that Boney James was featured on saxophone for “Shadows” by Dan Siegel.  It was actually Ernie Watts.  Conversely…
In #122, I said that Ernie Watts was on tenor saxophone for “Night Rhythms” by Lee Ritenour.  It was Eric Marienthal.
In #131, I made it sound like John Stossel also co-hosted “World News Tonight.”  He does not.
In #140, I made the mother of all mistakes.  I said “Claire,” as in “Woogitybop (for Claire)” by Spyro Gyra, was Jay Beckenstein’s wife.  It is his daughter.
At the start of #147, I apologize for “technical difficulties.”  The router was set to automation as opposed to the board in Studio 1.  As the intro was playing, I switched to the board.  The reason you hear the intro in full (along with the last song of the previous show brought back up before the file ended) is I was recording directly from the board.  So, now you get to hear what the listeners should have heard.  Instead, as 12:00:00 passed, they heard the rest of that last song until it faded out, followed
by 10 seconds of dead air.
In #152, as I was pre-selling “Mandela Bay” by Jonathan Butler, I mentioned that Nelson Mandela’s wife was Winnie.  The two actually separated in 1992 and divorced in 1996.  Mandela’s current wife is Graca Michel.
In #160, as I was back-selling the Bob James Three-Of-A-Kind Showcase, I stated that Bob’s album “Heads” came out in 1994.  I meant to say “1977,” but I forgot what I was saying.  The reason for this is I was looking at how much time was left on the music bed that was running for the live read I was going to do.
In #162, as I was going to the final break of the show, I said that 1:11 (one minute, 11 seconds) was “a pair of aces.”  I didn’t realize I meant to say “three aces” until an hour after the show was over.  I acknowledged the error in the following show.
In #163, though I acknowledged the previous show’s error, I made another error.  The last time we had played a Nelson Rangell song before this show was on April 14, 2004, not October 15, 2003.
In #164, while back-selling “Joe Cool,” I failed to mention who the voice of Nermal was.  It was Desiree Goyette.  She co-wrote “Joe Cool” with Vince Guaraldi.  I did mention her name while pre-selling, however.
For “The Mike Chimeri Homecoming Special” aircheck, I bleeped out all times where I called DJ MJ by her “government name.”
In #174, I refer to Jeff Lorber’s recording studio as “JHL Studios.”  It is called JHL Sound.
In #175, I say that John Tesh’s “Ironman Triathlon” album came out in 2002.  I meant 1992.  This correction shows up in the video file for this show.  The correction appears as “1992!  Not 2002.”
In #179, I referred to Dave Grusin as “Div Grusin.”  I neglected to back-sell “Sugarloaf Express” by Lee Ritenour.  Luckily, I back-sold as I pre-sold.  And I pronounced Laura Nyro’s last name “Nye-ro” instead of “Neero.”
In #180, I got sidetracked back-selling “Up ‘N’ At ‘Em” by Norman Brown and forgot to say that it was on his album “West Coast Coolin'” in 2004.
During my epilogue in the final show (#183), I said that I met “Matt Marshak following a doubleheader concert with his band, the Dharma All Stars.”  That was a misread.  I meant to say “…with his band and the Dharma All Stars.”
