Greetings from the Middle Groove, or the Central State of Mind as we call it around here. Congratulations on making it here, we’ll do the rest. This is our first blog post, and so we feel we should let you in on what we’re all about, here On the One 92.
First, a little about our name. To “keep it on the one” is to be the essence of the groove. Funk music’s power lies in the beat, and timing, and to have an emphasis on the “one” is to stay in the most powerful of pockets. Can you dig? If you’re lost I’ll quote RHCP, “If you have to ask, you’ll never know.” I assure you it’s not hard to learn.
The Funk preaches staying true to one’s self, and we feel that their is no other way to live. Humans are not only capable of living like this, but also the places in which we dwell. The tourism “enclave” which millions of visitors travel to every year is home to a population that is not fully understood. That is why we feel it is our mission to present to you media, publications, stories, and artwork that stays true to who we are. We love that people label certain aspects of this town as tacky, or kitsch. We embrace who we are, love what surrounds us, while at the same time making a name for ourselves.
