C44 / SHOW#85 / Curtis Smith

"You knew you were gonna have to work for whatever you got."

Curtis Smith knew exactly what he wanted to do with his life after his teacher Phil West led Curtis through a control room full of recording gear. Love at first sight. This took Curtis on a path that would lead him from an internship at American records where he folded press releases and ran errands to finally landing the dream gig at Interscope Records where he began to work side-by-side with some of the biggest names in the music business. Curtis has spent his life in service of recording artists the likes of Johnny Cash, Marilyn Manson and No Doubt. In the hay day of the late nineties Curtis helped launch and develop many household named acts while creating his own public relations firm called Maelstrom PR which is still going strong today.

A SoCal native, Mark brings the straight-up story telling told by the people for the people.  Sometimes Mark is animated and conversational, and other times he'll tread more lightly empowering the story teller to allow those stories to come as a flow in a stream of occurring memories.  Either way, C44 Shows are engaging, honest and often times inspiring.  Mark never really knows what's coming. That's where the fun begins. No script. No prep. 

Mark is here to explore ways to eliminate some of the absolutely avoidable suffering and discomfort associated with living amongst seven billion plus relatively ill prepared people who may or may not be on a spinning orb faced with inescapable death and no place to go. C44 Shows are posted the day they are completed which comes to around one every 10ish days. Thank you for listening and please Subscribe to CASTBOX and become part of the family. When a new show is ready, you'll get "pinged" with your NEW show  before anyone else! Set it. Forget it.

This is the real work that needs to be done in the world.

This is the first show both recorded and aired from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Both Tanya O'Conner and Charlie Hurley have dedicated their lives to the betterment of humankind in a variety of ways including but not limited to education and the healing arts. Through their own self education, hard work and a desire to see the world become a better place fo all especially those who are less fortunate, Tanya and Charlie have taken on the monumental task of giving people a much needed opportunity to live better and feel better about themselves. It was an honor and privilege to have them both on this very special C44 Show. Visit Tanya O'Conner online at  www.celtic-touch.com
