American singer/songwriter Taylor Swift was reported as saying; “people haven’t always been there for me but music always has.” The German born theoretical physicist Albert Einstein had this to say: “If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.”
What would life be without the sound of music? It has an amazing ability to lift spirits, change moods, paint pictures, take us on journeys to far off places; it can calm our thoughts, or excite and arouse us; it can cause years to evaporate and makes time travel possible, stirring old memories and emotions…It’s one of the few things that people of all ages, cultures, and ethnicities can share and enjoy.
Every weekday on RSL97 generations of music fans gather around their radios, and computers for one of the longest running “music festivals” on Groove Central!
Hosted by local singer/songwriter Shayne Ross, Groove Central is a journey through RSL97s musical archives featuring a hodgepodge of artistes spanning various genres and decades from the sixties, seventies, eighties and nineties, along with the best of today’s R&B, pop, Groovy Soca, Power Soca artistes.
RSL 97 has been lucky enough to have this singer/songwriter often referred to as “the local John Legend” as part of its family for the last few years as the host of the afternoon programme, Frenzy and The weekend Fixx. He has now moved to mid-mornings, taking his artistic talents, penchant for good music and his one of a kind persona to the show which is sure to make it another must-listen-to on RSL 97!
Ross has been described as one of the island’s “most recognisable artistes,” capturing the ears and hearts of music lovers with his own smooth R&B tracks and has won-over a whole new following with his delightful music selection. As one listener remarked “the boy’s got his taste on!”
