The Korean Spa Experience

PRESENTED ON MAY 24, 2016

"Where do you work?" After making the switch to men's fetishwear brand Nastypig, fashion designer Kevin Jaedon wants people to know that he is NOT a nasty pig! 

Kevin discusses how all brands give off distinct connotations. Whether designed to be high fashion, conservative and work-oriented, or to wear at the International Mister Leather convention, you never know who might actually be the brains behind what you are wearing! 

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Monday, August 11th, 2015.

Content To Be Determined

BY DAVE CARLOCK
@ VOL 7 ON DEC 01, 2016

DAVE CARLOCK is a 31-year veteran of the entertainment business whose work as a recording engineer and record producer, touring musician, and songwriter first made him Googleable. His continuing work as an Independent Content Creator of Sound and Image has earned him a Grammy Award certificate, two Platinum Record Awards, and a Paragon Award in advertising. Currently, he works with national and international artists recording or mixing records and making music videos at his production studio in the Benton Harbor Arts District.

As a performer: you may have seen Dave on MTV with Snoop Dogg; on YouTube with Blink-182; on Jimmy Kimmel Live with punk-rockers The Transplants; or at various St. Joseph fundraisers, such as the 2014 & 2016 SJHS Encore with the Encore Orchestra and the 2014 & 2015 Women's Service League Charity Ball, with his multi-media show, 'Projection'. Next month, he'll be wrapping up his third year in residency as a solo at The Lakehouse and Tosi's restaurants.

As an educator: his semi-weekly Funkin' Rock School is now in its sixth year of helping junior high students and above discover the love of making popular music straight from their playlists.

As the "Voice of the Mendel Center", he's been talking to you during your commute or through your television without your knowing it for the last 5 seasons. Bet you didn't know that!

As a writer: you may have read Dave's work as a weekly print columnist; and he can regularly be found on Facebook, holding court on any topic he finds fascinating from politics to dating to popular culture, as SW Michigan's favorite Liberal.
