In Frontline Records Rewind Episode 74, host Les Carlsen continues his musical interrogation of Crumbacher members Stephen Crumbacher, Dawn Wisner Johnson and Jimmy Wisner. Stephen talks about the beginning days of Frontline, including the surreal experience of driving around his musical idol, Terry Taylor, looking for potential studios.
In the show, listeners are wowed by acapella intro to “Glowing In The Dark”, off INCANDESCENT, the song that gave the group their signature sound. Acapella intro also kicks off “Speechless” from TAME THE VOLCANO, which Jimmy admitted was a favorite. These intros were from memory -no cheat sheets, folks- in amazing harmony! Stephen provides the inside scoop for his concept album, ESCAPE FROM THE FALLEN PLANET.
It was the 1980’s! Broken down van or bus, causing them to nearly miss their sets, Stephen’s mom making outfits, Jimmy wearing girls clothes and hair styles that reflected the times, were the norm for this keyboard-heavy pop group from Southern California. The episode closes with an emotional solo piano version of “Once More (For The Band)” off TAME THE VOLCANO, which was Stephens’ farewell song, a gift to the group, even before the decision to stop performing was final. Listeners may tear up a bit.Crumbacher, Frontline, Rewind

In Frontline Records Rewind Episode 73, host Les Carlsen gets together with Crumbacher members Stephen Crumbacher, Dawn Wisner Johnson and Jimmy Wisner, and into their “party in a box” pop-dance style. Stephen talks about breaks he got in the early 1980’s when he submitted a demo tape to Maranatha! Music, which lead to a track on MRC and Broken Records compilations, which lead to their 3 albums released on Frontline Records: Escape From The Fallen Planet, Thunder Beach and Tame The Volcano.
The group’s multi-keyboard style was attractive to Ojo Taylor of Undercover, who produced the first tracks. They also surprised Ojo when all three members gathered around a studio microphone and belted out their epic harmonies. In this episode, listeners are treated to an acappella intro of “Interstellar Satellite”.
Stephen wrote Crumbacher’s deep lyrics, with Biblical foundation. In fact, he provided scripture references supporting each song, which is why their music is timeless. The three original members are kind of timeless too, attending the same High School in Southern California and their families are still close today. Listeners get to experience the harmony of their relationship and vocals in this rare interview.Crumbacher, Frontline, Rewind

Crazy tour stories and rockin’ music continue in Part 2 with SHOUT
Frontline Rewind host Les Carlsen exclaims, These are the best tour stories I’ve heard, as he continues an interview with original Shout members, Chuck King (in person) and virtual Ken Tamplin (in Hawaii). Listeners are entertained with topics like: stolen clothes from a dressing room, speeding tickets in every state, train stop in the middle of Germany demanding money or else, and a 26-foot long sandwich Ken gave to KLOS radio to get music played.
Ken’s eating habits were the cause of many awkward situations. Chuck states that Ken needed to eat every 15 minutes –like a duck. Ken’s need to stop landed the long-haired rockers in Grandma’s Southern Cooking (Grandma is not the image one would expect) and trapped them in the middle of a tornado while stopping at a choke and puke diner in Pennsylvania.
The guys laughingly credit Frontline Records as the reason for the stories. If a tour budget had been provided, they wouldn’t have been speeding from state to state in a broken down van, struggling to pay transportation and food costs. Rockin’ tracks from It Won’t Be Long and In Your Face are weaved in between stories. Pure entertainment!
