Who is listening to Human's Show? 

The Human has hosted Human's show for over 10 years.  He plays a variety of music, hot blues and smokin rock.  Almost all old school.  Why? Because this music is the best.  There is nothing going on today in the music scene that can duplicate it or sound like it. For this reason, this is what he plays. He has an extensive collection of vinyl and cd's that he draws from. He also plays his own music, (The Human Project)  His audience is an international one, and can vary from week to week, or month to month but the countries listed are pretty consistent.  The same with US cities.

The top US Cities that regularly listen to his show are:

Newark, NJ. Fresno, CA. Kansas City. Denver. Chicago. Dallas. Houston. Wichita. Washington DC. Portland. San Diego. Philadelphia. Tampa. Cincinnati. Charlotte. New York City.  (There are more, but these are consistent with good numbers of listeners)


Australia. (Melbourne, Adelaide) UK (Glascow, Liverpool) Russian Federation (Khabarovsk) Germany. Netherlands. France. Spain. Austria. Sweden. Canada. South Africa.

The Story of Connection  

In approximately 2018, The Human decided he would try to cover the Jagger-Richards song, "Connection."  It was not the Stones version of it, but rather an obscure version done by Montrose in 1974. It was on their Paper Money album.  The Human really liked their version with Sammy Hager laying down a great vocal. So he sent this version to Jerry Leal at Pyramid Studio in Fresno, CA and asked him what he thought.  He said, " I know a guy who can help you with this." His name was Rick Willmitch and yes, he could most certainly do that. He sketched out the track with guitar, bass and drums and we met at Pyramid. He played what he had and I really liked it.  I started to work on laying the vocal which was more difficult than I though it would be, but I finally nailed it. I brought it Sharon Jordan Leal of Fresno to add some background harmonies I arranged.  I had Rick lay a harmonica solo down in a couple of places.  And, we pretty much had it. I sent the track to Jeff Sanders of Merced, CA to master it. He did a killer job so "Connection," was born.  It is not a top seller, but really it is one of The Human's favorite tracks.  So, that is the story of Connection, It is on 2019, "Fadin to Gray," a download only release.
