THE CLEVELAND SHOW: Cleveland discovers a surprising secret about Donna's Auntie Momma that changes his impression of her forever in the all-new "A Brown Thanksgiving" episode of THE CLEVELAND SHOW airing Sunday, Nov. 22 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. THE CLEVELAND SHOW ™ and © 2009 TTCFFC ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. © 2009 FOX BROADCASTING CR: FOX

Daryl Hall and John Oats are the guest voices for this Sunday’s episode of The Cleveland Show and to hear creator, Mike Henry tell it, it’s a real shocker.

To begin with Henry says the rockers will play the good and bad angels on Cleveland’s shoulders. But, it’s why and how they’re advising him that gets things ramped up - in a probing sort of way.

Click onto media bar for exactly how Cleveland interacts with his two angels, Hall & Oats, on The Cleveland Show from Mike Henry.

The Cleveland Show airs Sundays, 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.

Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy on next Live From Daryl's House


LFDH Episode #25 with Patric Stump of Fall Out Boy Coming Up Nov 15th!

The two pair up for 25th installment of groundbreaking web series ....

Fall Out Boy vocalist Patrick Stump writes most of the music for his platinum-plus Chicago rock band, but he’s also a closet R&B/soul fan who has produced tracks for fellow Windy City rapper Lupe Fiasco, and is a longtime fan of Daryl Hall’s music, which makes him the perfect guest for the 25th and latest installment of Live From Daryl’s House, available starting Nov. 15 at www.lfdh.com. ....

.. ..

“As a musician, I can’t fathom a show more fun to play than Live From Daryl’s House,” says Stump about his experience playing with Daryl and his band, including T-Bone Wolk, on the web series.....

“Patrick Stump is one soulful vocalist,” says Daryl admiringly. “I was really impressed with his grasp of R&B and it turned out we shared a love for a great deal of the same music.”....

.. ..

As a producer, Stump has worked with such bands as Gym Class Heroes, whose vocalist Travis McCoy is also an unabashed Daryl Hall fan and a participant in a previous Live From Daryl’s House. Fall Out Boy guitarist Joe Trohman calls him “a musical genius, a mad scientist,” while noted producer/performer Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds says, “Patrick is one of the hottest dudes I’ve seen in a long time… He’s got a great voice and a tremendous amount of talent.” Fall Out Boy’s fifth album, Folie a Deux, was released last December, producing the hit singles, “I Don’t Care” and “America’s Suitehearts.”....

.. ..

Stump puts that great voice straight to work, joining Daryl in a seven-song set highlighted by singles “Out of Touch” and “Guessing Games,” the latter from the H2O album. Among the Fall Out Boy songs Daryl and Patrick perform are versions of “I Don’t Care,” “What a Catch, Donny” and “Sugar, We’re Goin Down” along with a cover of Jimmy Ruffin’s soul classic, “What Becomes of the Broken-Hearted.”....

.. ..

Past episodes of Live from Daryl’s House have featured a mix of well-known performers like Smokey Robinson, The Doors’ Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek, Nick Lowe, K.T. Tunstall, Todd Rundgren, Gym Class Heroes’ Travis McCoy, Finger Eleven’s James Black and Rick Jackett and the Bacon Brothers, along with newcomers such as Philly soul singer Mutlu, Canadian techno-rockers Chromeo, MySpace pop-rock phenom Eric Hutchinson, Cash Money rocker Kevin Rudolf, Wind-up Records’ Chicago rockers Company of Thieves, Bay Area singer/songwriter Matt Nathanson, Charlottesville, VA’s rising Parachute, Chicago rock band Plain White T’s and highly touted tunesmith Diane Birch.

Live from Daryl’s House started with Daryl’s “light-bulb moment” idea of “playing music with my friends and putting it up on the Internet,” and the show has subsequently been praised by such varied media outlets as Rolling Stone, Spin, Daily Variety, CNN, BBC, Yahoo and the influential Lefsetz Letter. ....

Whole Notes Extra

Hey kids! I've been back from our Philly excursion for about a week and a half now and what a trip!! It was truly amazing! The Last Call at the Philly Spectrum was a BLAST! Here is a slide-show of pics from the event!

Click here to view these pictures larger

THE VILLAGE - No it's not a new thriller in theaters...technically the entire title of the new CD that features John Oates is called The Village: A Celebration of the Music of Greenwich Village. Released on 429 Records , this compilation includes 60's folk songs performed by contemporary artists such as John Oates, Los Lobos and Amos Lee. The album is available at Amazon for $11.99.

JOHN OATES NEXT SOLO - At his show in Lansdale, PA, John announced to fans, friends and family that his next solo effort will be released on 429 Records. After management at the label heard his song on The Village album they reportedly asked John if he'd be interested in recording his very own folk-style album. John's response: "Why, yes, yes I would!". If you are a long-time JO fan you know that his roots are steeped in folk music and he is a HUGE Doc Watson fan. John seems to be VERY excited about this album and I must say, as a fan, I am too!

LIVE FROM DARYL'S HOUSE - If you are like me, I impatiently wait every month for the next LFDH guest to be announced. To my surprise Daryl prematurely let the cat out of the bag at a recent Washington, D.C. show. Premiering on November 15th will be Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy. Patrick is a great vocalist and the band as a whole writes some super lyrics. Check out the Fall Out Boy website HERE . Fave tracks of mine include 'Sugar, We're Going Down" and 'A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More Touch Me'.

Presumably December's guest will be Jimmy Wayne who is currently enjoying chart success with a cover of D&J's 'Sara Smile'. His album of the same name drops on November 23rd. Visit Jimmy's website HERE to listen to the track, view videos and pre-order the album.

Due to the closeness of the album's release date to November 15th (the next LFDH) it is entirely possible that Jimmy will be on in November and Patrick will get pushed to December. Either way, tune in to LFDH.com at 8PM EST on the 15th to find out!

TOUR DATES - Currently Hall & Oates have no official tour dates announced. John has a number of dates scheduled including some special Christmas shows with musician Jerry Douglas who has a brand spankin' new Christmas album. Check out John's website for the latest dates & times!

ELIOT LEWIS - Hall & Oates uber-talented keyboardist, Eliot Lewis, will be performing his one-man Rock 'n Soul show at the Kicking Horse Grill in Southport, CT on Friday, November 13th. I promise, you don't want to miss this kids!

MESSAGE BOARD HIGHLIGHTS - Check out the HOF MESSAGE BOARD for all of the latest Hall & Oates news and updates. Check out pictures, reviews and video from the recent shows at the 9:30 Club in D.C. as well as The Last Call at the Philly Spectrum! Hope to see you there!!
