Flocks, whose album “Battle Mountain” was one of last year’s ballet shoes shirt embroidered - ballerina girl top best debut recordings, got to know O’Doherty several years ago when she was in the Stanford Jazz Workshop’s two-year Jazz Mentor program and he was on faculty, He’s watched how she’s integrated her far-flung travels into her music, drawing inspiration from the people and rhythms of West Africa and South America, “She’s able to evoke feelings and emotions that bring you to where she’s been in these far away places,” Flocks says, “A lot of her songs have a story behind them, and her music takes you on a journey, I love the way she’ll write melodies to a poem she’s written but not include the lyrics, because when I’m working on a melody, I’m trying to sing through my horn, There’s a real vocal quality to her melodies and compositions.”..

When new ways of doing business come along now they are called “disruptive,” and maybe Radio Shack’s problem was that it never disrupted anything. When Wozniak was in college, during the 1971-72 school year, he developed a phone hacking device called a blue box that he and Steve Jobs sold. It relied on diodes Woz bought at the Shack, so when he and Jobs created their first computer, the Apple I, they went back to their old supplier. “We started calling Radio Shack to see if they wanted to buy it and give us some royalties,” Woz said by phone from Dubai, where he was lecturing on the secrets of his success. “They said they only paid 5 percent royalties on a design.
