POPRAH, Television personality, actress, recording artist, writer and producer joins Mother Love in studio to share her vibrant passion to be a difference in the industry.
About POPRAH
"Poprah", a name created to define a young woman who encompasses the vision, integrity, and passion of media icon, "Oprah Winfrey" and the creativity, drive and fortitude of Sean "Puffy" Combs. She created this name, to reflect her focus on building a multimedia conglomerate, which integrates the best of her many skills sets, talents and creative endeavors, as well as those of her mentors.
As an experienced television personality, actress, recording artist, writer and producer, she has had many successes that have spanned the entertainment industry both locally, and internationally. As one of faces on Vh1's Reality Show, "I Want To Work For Diddy", Poprah is well on her way to rivaling some of the best in business. She acts, hosts, sings, raps, writes, produces, and has her own clothing line for plus-size women, called "Fatabulous". "Yes, some of us are fat, but that doesn't mean we can't be fabulous. I'm living proof", she says. "That's why the line is called "Fatabulous".
She admitted that she intentionally allowed herself to gain excessive weight after being disillusioned by the sexism of the entertainment industry. "I really wanted to be taken seriously and respected for my talent alone, like Oprah, Queen Latifah, and other women who I respected in the industry. It seems as long as I could fit into a size 5 to 7 jeans, the men of the industry always had some ulterior motive, never just business, and no matter what I wore or where I'd meet them, or how much I pleaded with them to just stick to business, they wouldn't listen. So I was forced to walk away, and sacrifice whatever opportunity they may have offered, because I refused to sleep my way to the top. "This journey has been long and arduous", she says but, I'm closer to dream than ever".
Poprah, is now the CEO of her own TV, Music and Film Production Company, Hollywood South Productions, LLC. "Hollywood South," is a respected and growing multimedia conglomerate, and the fruit of years of hard labor. First there was Puffy and there was Oprah. Now l.

Wendy Parmley, RN, MBA, Author of "Hope After Suicide, One Woman's Journey from Darkness to Light", calls in from Utah to share her light and struggles and questions and uncertainty of what to feel when she addressed her Mother's suicide leaving a husband, five young children and 1000's of what if's.
About Wendy
She suffered a disabling bike accident in September 2011. Unable to return to her 20 year nursing career because of the continued effects of her injuries, Wendy began the slow and painful penning of her angel mother's story and Wendy's healing journey following her mom's suicide death. Wendy's mom took her own life when just 31 years old, leaving behind her husband of thirteen years and their five young children. Wendy has long advocated for suicide prevention and has participated on various professional and community based groups dedicated to that end. She also recognizes the need to unashamedly support those who must continue to live in the painful aftermath of a loved one's suicide and passionately lends her voice to that cause. Prior to her bike accident, Wendy worked in nursing leadership for 14 years, earning her MBA degree from Brigham Young University in 2007. Despite her continued limitations, Wendy is grateful to spend more time with the love of her life, her husband Mark. She is ever grateful for his support and the support of their three married sons and their wives, their amazing daughter, and their beautiful two grandchildren who fill their life with sunshine.

I'm fundraising on Kickstarter.com/Chocolate Is NOT BETTER than SEX and have only 10 days left to pull off a miracle.
About Aleisha
I was born in Arlington, Massachusetts but don't know anything about it because I went straight to LA as a baby. I grew up in a family with five brothers and one sister. At age 7 I began writing poetry and short stories. In junior high school, I worked for the school paper and added acting and directing to the mix.
My love of writing goes hand-in-hand with my love of people, languages and cultures. In high school, I studied German and Spanish. At fifteen I got a scholarship for a summer exchange program and went to Germany then went again for a full year. I've traveled many countries in Europe and India.
At 19, I fell in love and married someone I met at church then had a preemie baby.
I joined a theater and wrote several one-act plays. It was at a film festival though that I realized I'd found my calling. I turned one of the novels I started into a screenplay.
I filmed three shorts, derived from my plays and acted in an award winning short. I also became crew for several productions from the filmmakers around me. Personally, I started going through some marriage problems and ended up divorcing my husband and moving to LA.
I've been assisting in other films and TV/web as cast and crew and also shot two PSAs for Help for Orphans, Int.
I am exceedingly happy as I got married in 2009 to an amazing and wonderful man, Byron Gore. You can check out his music at byrongore.com. We married on June 7, 2009 in a lovely ceremony at our home surrounded by many friends and family, even from the UK! It was wonderful.
Altogether I've written and directed over 50 shorts since I produced and acted in an internet sketch comedy show called Saturday Night YouTube! We've shot and aired 47 episodes.
I'm currently working on and wrote a romantic comedy about a woman coming back into the dating scene after divorce, called Chocolate is Not Better than Sex, which I am now producing and will direct in December. See the teaser trailer chocolateisnotbetterthansex.com.

Jacqueline Pham, a self taught Chef with a diverse history, joins Mother Love in studio to share her true passion for all things cooking. The author of two cookbooks that showcase her culinary skills in French, Vietnamese, Indian and American dish shares her tips and tricks and brings turkey crepes with butternut squash and a smooth chestnut sauce! YUM!
About Chef Jacqueline
My name is Jacqueline (Jackie) Pham, and I started PhamFatale.com as a way to interact with other foodies. I am not a professional cook, I've never attended any cooking classes, but I just love to cook for my family and friends.
For me, cooking is an expression of love. I love to cook and I cook for the ones I love. Great food is nourishment for the body and soul. Whether it's a savory entree, a refreshing drink or a decadent dessert, we all have those favorite dishes that take us back in time.
I was born in the City of Light, Paris, France. My parents emigrated from Saigon, Vietnam in the mid 70s. From early on I was exposed to both cultures and cuisines. I love delicate French pastries and crave all the traditional Asian seafood dishes. In my mid-twenties, I moved to the sunny San Francisco Bay Area to be with my husband. Like me, he is the child of immigrants, though his parents are from India and he was born in the US.
We have a big family here, so there are always plenty of mouths to feed. We have a 14-month-old daughter. My husband has four little sisters, ranging in age from 9 to 17. My husband and 3 of his sisters are vegetarians. My father-in-law is a vegetarian but he only likes spicy Indian food and is allergic to mushrooms. My husband's 12-year-old sister is deathly allergic to eggs and all nuts (except peanuts, go figure!). And the rest of us are meat lovers.

Mother Love, Mr. Kennedy & Sandy Stotzer, Comic/LA Talk Radio Show Host of A Comic's Life, hare their crazy comments on current events, Celeb divorces, cancelling "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" and other crazy talk.
themotherloveshow.com
About Sandy
Born in Chicago in 1952 to an unwed mother, Sandy Stotzer was immediately put up for adoption. Five months later, he was adopted by a wonderful couple (Sam and Midge Stotzer) and began to show signs of being funny even as a child. Although raised as a classical musician playing the trumpet from the age of five, Sandy was always a "closet comic."
Sandy's family eventually moved from Chicago to Northern California where he began to showcase his comedic talents while attending Saratoga High School helping to create Gross Gems Productions, an amateur film company specializing in comedy film shorts. The films were an instant hit, taking five awards out of their six films entered at the annual Eastman Kodak International Film Festival.
Gross Gems film showings became so popular, they later added "live sketch comedy" between films, creating a unique and well rounded ninety minute show, selling out every performance. Forty years later their films still run today on television.
Although accepted at The Julliard School of Music in New York City, Sandy chose California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles for his college experience. It was here that Sandy fell in love with radio, television and the entertainment world in general.
After college, Sandy moved back to Northern California where he was given his own weekly television talk show during the early days of cable. Years later he moved back to Los Angeles where he performed regularly at "The Comedy Store" and "The Improv" in a comedy improvisational group and eventually worked his way into stand-up comedy.
The rest is history. For more years then he'd like to admit, Sandy has shared his hilarious style of insanity with millions of people coast to coast performing in clubs, colleges, numerous television commercials, national stand-up spots on networks such as BET (Black Entertainment Television) and finally to his ABC Pilot.
Today Sandy has been married to his beautiful, very successful and tolerant wife Beatrice, for the past thirty eight years. Without her love and support Sandy is convinced his life wouldn't have a fraction of the richness it has today. They have two grown sons, Nick (his oldest) who is a Pastor along with his wife Kimberly at a church in Southern California and Tony (Sandy's youngest son) is a budding television producer in the Los Angeles area. Sandy is more than proud of them all.

Regina Radomski, Author of "From Half to Whole", A journey to overcome the battle scars of adoption and living to tell about it, calls in from NJ to share her hard fought journey to adopting older children from Poland.
The number of older-child adoptions is on the rise. In fact, of the nearly 8,700 international adoptions that took place last year, more than half were between the ages of 1 and 4, and nearly a quarter were between the ages of 5 and 12. This new image of adoption—due in large part to the 2008 ratification of the Hague Adoption Convention—presents new challenges for families looking to expand or start a family.
From Half to Whole is a raw and honest look at the trials and tribulations of one family's struggle to adopt and raise two young boys from Poland who came to America not only with a few stuffed toys in their backpacks but also the trauma of their past.
Sharing her personal diary entries, Regina Radomski reveals her compelling yet tumultuous journey to acclimate her adopted children to their new environment and the solace she found in family, friends, and valuable resources she discovered along the way.

Pina Di Cola, world renowned celebrity photographer joins Mother Love to share her theory on photo-image. Her new book, "Your Are Photogenic, Discover Your True Self with Photo-Image in the Age of the Selfie" rips the lid off of what is your True image not just what we see in the mirror as that image is distorted.
About Pina
Pina Di Cola's career as an internationally-recognized photographer in the entertainment industry has spanned 30 years; she has an archive of over 50,000 photos. Her professional career began while working on the set of Amarcord. Di Cola developed a friendship with maestro Fellini, became a recognized photographer in the Italian film industry, working on over 35 Italian films and closely with directors Pasquale Festa Campanile, Vincent Minnelli, Brian De Palma, Franco Zeffirelli, Gianfranco De Bosio, Martin Ritts, Massimo Troisi, George Kennedy, Maximilian Schell among others. She also operated a studio in Rome where she specialized in celebrity photography and was a highly-sought-after European photographer. Her work was also featured in major European magazines such as Oggi, CHI, Gente, Diva, Hola, Hello, Paris Match and many more. Di Cola then moved to Los Angeles, California, thus broadening her access to celebrity clientele. Her intellectual curiosity and the nature of her work prompted her to explore the range of human facial expressions and just how individuals perceive themselves. Throughout her career as a photographer, Di Cola established relationships with important personalities through a unique warmth and sensitivity that elicited clients' personal and genuine beauty. Her portraits reflect the care, consideration, and personalization that have ensured her success as a photographer. On the relationship between photographer and client, Pina believes that "the way someone presents him or herself to the camera, and the photographer's response to that presence, is what it's all about." Her approach to shooting portraits is to present her clients as they really are, as human beings with no gimmicks or tricks—only capturing what makes them special: their true selves. The concept of Photo-Image is true to this approach of capturing the individual's inner essence in a photograph. Studying the psychology and neurology of self-image, she discovered that our human minds cannot process our own image because, physically, we must rely on the inaccuracy of the mirror's reflection or the interpretation of others. This resulted in the concept of Photo-Image... a tool through which to gain a visual image of who we are. Di Cola has independently studied the range of human emotions and facial expressions, the human brain and subconscious mind, and such concepts as self-esteem and self-concepts. Through attending numerous seminars and lectures, and conducting many herself, she has explored the realms of beauty and perception. Through a variety of sources, from philosophical and psychological theories to neurological interpretations, Ms. Di Cola has expanded upon her concept of Photo-Image via a broad-range of mediums and topics to address and reflect the unifying theme of seeing yourself to know yourself

I bring a tremendous amount of life experience to my roles, I am well trained and a hard worker. I have language skills in several languages and some understanding of the human condition. I value the opportunity to be a story teller in this latest phase of my life. I am excited to be on a new journey. The world is a mess, I think it is important for artists to speak out and re-trim the sails of human destiny."

Judy Karman, Actress/ Producer with Dream Cinema Productions joins Mother Love in studio to share her fiery passion for the business of Show Business
About Judy
If an actor's strength lies in his or her life's experiences, then Judy Karman is as strong as Hercules. Judy and her fraternal twin, Ruthie, were born late in their parents' lives. Her dad had spent time in Vaudeville, worked with many of the greatest names in the business, although as far as he was concerned, they were just everyday people.

Judy grew up, passionately took up tap dance classes, participated in Community Theater, and loved the summer evenings spent with her family in Balboa Park, attending the Starlight Musicals. Later in life she also spent time as the only female and non-Sicilian on the Board of Directors of a Sicilian Culture Association in San Diego. She attended workshops and training sessions in San Diego and Hollywood, including 40 hours of intense training with accomplished director Tom Logan.
During the years Judy never lost her passion while working in Corporate America management and training. It only fueled it more. In 2011 after acting in the first short film "The Vision and a first full length independent feature "The Test", Judy decided to follow the path of her passion. She moved to Los Angeles and with a couple TV appearances and film projects later, including on the Marie Osmond Show on the Hallmark Channel, which lead to the show's producer asking her to make a second appearance, Judy was on her way. Later it was time to bring her business skills into the mix, and started "Lady J Entertainment" During this time she have been able to help others with projects, as well as recently the Producer for a video for The World Networks. Judy went on to create her own social media to encompass an extensive worldwide International following and connections which has been instrumental for business.

Jurline K. Redeaux, MSW, Executive Director of New Impression joins Mother Love in studio to share her love of her community and people and her passion to help heal them.
About Jurline
My mother suffered from Diabetes and raising awareness in the African American is my life long passion. Not only for Diabetes but for all the chronic illnesses that plagued our community to include, depression, strokes, mental health issues, and alcohol and addiction. My life has been impacted by all of these, however due to my insight and awareness has managed to prevent all placing my faith in God at the head. I will attach an article written and published in Cal State Dominguez Hills Newsletter. My life is truly a testimony and I have proud to give back to my Community. I will also direct you to my web page newimpression.org as well.
We are doing the tremendous work at the Alcoholism Center for Women. They are celebrating their 40 Year Anniversary on 10/18/14 from 2 - 5 PM at 1147 South Alvarado Street Los Angeles, CA 90006
We have secured Comedian Annie McKnight to host our event. She is an amazing woman. God has blessed me with many talents.
How my life is connected to this event, is a very personal one. Simply stated I grew up with Alcoholism. My brother Leroy Johnson, my favorite Aunt Martha, they were the fun and the life of the party. Later in life, I learned the toil that the alcohol had taken on the quality of their life. My brother was in and out of prison most of his life. Alcohol related. My Auntie, never kept a healthy relationship with anyone, abused her grandchildren and died alone. All related to alcohol. The mental health challenges associated with being an alcoholic is heart breaking to say the least. It impacts the entire family. I truly believe worrying about them is the main reason my mother's health suffered such a decline, leading to her becoming a diabetic among other chronic diseases.
In 2002, my brother lost his battle with Alcoholism as years of drinking cheap liquor, destroyed his stomach. His death impacted me in a profound way as he and I was extremely close.
In spite of their weakness, they both had the biggest heart and love for our family. They just didn't know how to love themselves. So I dedicate my life to giving back. I only wish that my Aunt and Brother had found an agency like the Alcoholism Center for Women, a residential program that would have given them the opportunity to transform their lives.
By serving on the board, along with my daughter who is also a Social Worker, it is my way to honor their memories, and to pay it forward. It is also a way to honor my Mother who loved them both, her son and her auntie, as she too lost her battle with Diabetes.
Wherever I go, and whenever I speak to the African American Community or any Community for that matter, I take a piece of them with me. It's my way of saying, your passing and your life was not in vain.

Carvin Haggins, Grammy Award winning Songwriter/Producer calls in from Philadelphia, PA to share his passion for the decline in music lyrics and the need for his "Rage Against the Ratchet" movement.
Organized as a "Movement" in May 2014,by Grammy Award-winning producer, songwriter and arranger, Carvin Haggins, Rage Against the Ratchet was formed to build awareness about the current violent and sexually explicit songs that can be heard on urban radio stations. The word "Ratchet" (derived from "wretched") by definition was used in urban communities as an adjective describing a person that displays inappropriate behavior. The word has evolved and is now used in Pop Culture (still associated with a negative connotation); hence, the term to name the movement Rage Against the RatcheAs a father and mentor, Haggins became appalled by the current music played on air and lack of diversity of songs that can be heard on urban radio stations. As he states, "Now, as a father, I can no longer allow my children to listen to songs currently playing on the radio. While taking my children to school in the morning, I have to dodge from station to station trying to avoid sexually explicit, raunchy conversation by the show host. Picking my children up from school at 3pm, when the latest record is played...it's a disaster waiting to happen. Radio used to be the place we turn to for information on life, love, health and prosperity. Now it's a place of death and destruction. History shows us when the music was positive, our community was better."
Previous years, radio stations use to have strict regulations for the music that contained explicit words, such as the "b-word" or anything deemed derogatory. Today, lyrical content is so explicit, even the "clean" version has become problematic. It appears, radio stations have compromised to please the artist and an industry that continues to push the already hypocrisy of what is acceptable to say and suggest in music.

Cynthia Troussaint & John Garrett join Mother Love in studio to invite women who live in chronic pain their families and care givers to the 7th Annual Women In Pain Conference and LIVE webcast: Accepting Pain: Our New Normal. This event is September 12, 2014 @ The California Endowment Center for Healthy Communities.
About Cynthia
I lead a life of contradiction. I've experienced horrific pain, a non-caring medical system, and total loss of the career I felt I was born for. Yet I feel completely blessed. Twenty-seven years ago, I was a 21-year-old ballerina with a bright future. Then a minor ballet injury in my right leg triggered the chronic pain disease, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, too often called "The Suicide Disease."
For the first thirteen years of illness, my doctors told me my physical problems were all in my head. That abuse left me bedridden for a decade and unable to speak for five years while the CRPS spread throughout my body and ravaged my vocal cords. After my disease was diagnosed in 1995 (later I developed fibromyalgia as an over-lapping condition), I enjoyed significant improvement and moved into a wheelchair.
But my anger with my predominantly male physicians gave me the gut feeling I'd been dismissed because I was a woman. I wasn't alone. Studies show women are more prone to chronic pain diseases and feel pain more intensely than men, all the while receiving far less care. We get sedatives and psychiatric referrals, while men tend to receive serious diagnosis, painkillers and aggressive treatment. Simply put, women hurt more and are helped less.
So I founded the nonprofit, For Grace, to ensure ethical and equal treatment of all women in pain. Our goal is to empower women to become better advocates for their pain care and to declare war on gender bias and the ever-convenient "it's all in your head." Cynthia Toussaint is the founder and spokesperson of For Grace. Toussaint championed and gave key testimony at two California Senate hearings – one was dedicated to CRPS awareness, the second explored the chronic under-treatment of and gender bias toward women in pain. She will spearhead a third hearing in Spring 2010 that will explore the barriers to care that women in pain face. Toussaint is the author of the memoir, Battle for Grace .
My shining star was my partner John who stayed by me, whispering support all along the way. His love lifted me through the worst of times, his steady strength soothed my wounds.
About John
Cynthia's care giver and Life Partner have been together for 34 years. He is her staunchest supporter, confidant friend and gave his voice to their memoir Battle For Grace. Even though he was reluctant at first, he knew how his sharing love story could give hope and healing to those who love and care for women in pain. Leaving was NEVER an option for him and because they are not "technically" wed, they are married, to each other in deep devotion ,love and commitment to being of service to Women In Pain.

J-RO of Tha Alkaholiks aka Tha Liks joins Mother Love in studio to drop some of his vast knowledge as a Hip Hop Ambassador. Celebrating 21 years in the industry doing everything from writing (since he was13) to performing,living in Sweden for 10 years to teaching Hip Hop Culture @ University there and coming back to his hometown LA to share that same knowledge with the next gen of business men & women.
He and his business partners are hosting the 1st Annual Hip Hop 818 Antics Music Festival. This family friendly 12 hour extravaganza of music, arts, food,live performances on 2 stages is Saturday 8/30/14 from 2PM - 2AM @9943 Canoga Blvd, Chatsworth, CA. Advance tickets are $20.00, $30.00 @ the door. For ticket info: purplepass.com or purchase from the young street team members .
About J-Ro
J-Ro started rapping at the age of 13 as a young multi-talented athlete and overall connoisseur of sports and verbal jousting was no exception. But even before blessing the microphone, like many B-Boys before his time, he started as a DJ and overall lover of Hip-Hop, but the mic was irresistible to MC. 'I learned how to rap from my God-brother, Suave E.D. Brock (RIP) and then met E-Swift and Tash when I was 18 – we became the E.S.P. (Everyday Street Poets) Crew", says J-Ro – now calling Sweden his home. He was competitive at a young age and his thirst for the mic would get him in special places with special personalities – like DJ Pooh, Scotty Dee, Cold Crush Chris and on tour with Hip-Hop legend, King Tee. 'I would open for King Tee and after I introduced Tash and E-Swift to him, he renamed us Tha Alkaholiks', says J-Ro. Tha Alkaholiks would go on to record a breakout single with King Tee entitled, "I Got It Bad Y'all". The success of the single in tandem with the undeniable personality, of J-Ro, Tash and E-Swift as Tha Alkaholiks, prompted their immediate signing to Loud Records. What would follow is one of the most underappreciated, overwhelming, credible and amazing Hip-Hop careers to ever exist – Tha Alkaholiks earned universal respect as Hip-Hop ambassadors and aficionados around the globe and were never boxed in as 'regional' artists. One cannot measure the value of a free man who has created and pursued his path like J-Ro has. More than a member of one of Hip-Hop's most celebrated groups, more than a survivor of an area that has with drugs, gangs and social ills swallowed men and women of color alive and finally more than a B-Boy – J-Ro stands as an ambassador and representative of Hip-Hop's best elements and of human relations around the world.

Lynn Sarkany CO Executive Director of VETBOSS and Heraclio Kiki Aguilar III AKA Junior join Mother Love in studio for a candid conversation on PTSD and how he is taking ownership of his mental wellness. He is working to assist other Veterans with their PTSD by engaging them in instructions on creating video games. His program "The T.O.I. Soldier Project " is putting a crowd funding campaign to generate funding for the eventual healing of our brave Veterans

entrepreneursprofessionals.com
About Junior
Heraclio Kiki Aguilar III (He also goes by "Junior") was raised in the small farming town of Porterville, CA at the center of the San Joaquin Valley. Like me, Junior was a troublemaker in High School because he was bored, but he did graduate from the Porterville Panthers in 2000. At that point, he left town and joined the Army. He was stationed in South Korea on September 11, 2001. After that, being on High Alert was the new normal, and every day that he spent in the military until he got out in 2007 was spent in that state. Jr. put his life on the line for our country and would do it all again, because during his military career he left the Army, joined the National Guard and became a Bradley Tank Driver.
Junior attended college after he got out of the military, and received an Associates in Business Administration, but the market crashed as he started to look for work. In 2011, Junior decided that it was time to be adventurous again, and that it was time to work on his own well being, and so he packed up and moved to LA. He eventually received a Bachelors in Video Game animation, and with those skills he created the T.O.I. Soldier Project.

Ernestine Phillips, Wayne Stribling, Jr, & Gerald Rivers, Actors/ Resident Members of Will Geer's Theatricum Botanicum drop by the studio to invite you all to the 450th Birthday Celebration of an All-Shakespeare Season for 2014.
Earnestine and Wayne appear in this summer's production of "All's Well that Ends Well" as the Countess of Rousillon and the King of France, respectively. and Gerald plays the Earl of Kent in "Lear." Theatricum is a repertory company, so all the productions are up and running at once, and it's possible to see all the shows in a single weekend.
About Will Geer's Theatricum Botanicum
The beginnings stretch back to the early 1950s when Will Geer, one of the many actors victimized by the McCarthy Era Blacklisting, opened up a theater for blacklisted actors and folk singers on his property in Topanga.
The gardens were a place of refuge for Geer. Here he could indulge his passions for horticulture and acting. With wife Herta Ware and their children, Geer, unable to find work in Hollywood, made money selling vegetables and flowers. On the dirt stage next to Topanga Creek surrounded by ancient oaks and sycamores, the family presented Shakespeare and played music with good friends such as Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger and John Randolph. The audience sat on hay bales and the performances were free. This magical combination of nature and art formed a nurturing, creative oasis for many actors and artists and an invigorating natural setting for audiences. Then, in 1962, Otto Preminger cast Geer in the film Advise and Consent. His acting career was rekindled and eventually he was cast as the feisty but loveable Grandpa on the long-running television series The Waltons (1971-78) – the role for which he is best remembered. In 1973, Geer re-gathered his family, who were now working actors at theaters across the country, and together they formed a nonprofit corporation. The theater, which was then a performance space on the property where the Shakespeare Garden now exists, housed workshop performances of Shakespeare; folk plays; memorials for actors such as Robert Ryan; concerts by Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie, Della Reese and Burl Ives among others; and "hootenannies" given by and for the artists who were by now considered part of the family. Upon the death of Mr. Geer in 1978, the family and a small band of players decided to work towards becoming a family.
About Wayne
With 14 years of acting, over 25 plays and over 200 improv performances, I finally get to play the King in All's Wells that ends well. I've performed in Northern and Southern California. As a native Californian it's great to be able to perform in your home state and not have to move across the country to pursue your dream. I love Theater more than film or TV, but will gladly take a series regular role on TV. Over the years I have crafted 12 different characters for my improv performance including Bill Cosby, Mike Tyson, Christopher Walken and Chewbacca from Star Wars.

Gilbert Glenn Brown & Matthew Hancock 2 of the stars in the play "The Brothers Size" join Mother Love in studio to invite you to see this transformation piece by award winning Director Shirley Jo Finney. Set on the back-roads of the Louisiana bayou, The Brothers Size follows the path of the recently paroled Oshoosi Size (Matthew Hancock) as he seeks to jumpstart his life. Working in an auto repair shop for his brother Ogun (Gilbert Glenn Brown), however, was not what he had in mind. When his old friend Elegba (Theodore Perkins) rolls up, offering a different direction, Oshoosi quickly finds himself torn between his brother, his loyalties and his dreams. It's an exuberantly theatrical drama that weaves together the pulsing rhythms of the bayou with African Yoruba mythology to create a stylized story of love and heartache. While part two of McCraney's trilogy stands alone – you don't need any knowledge of the first (In the Red and Brown Water) or third (Marcus; or the Secret of Sweet) to enjoy The Brothers Size – the three plays exist in the same world. Set in the fictional Louisiana bayou town of San Pere, in what McCraney calls "the distant present," they share themes, characters and similar theatrical conventions. Dreams seep into waking life.

Josh Chaney, The California Mad Popper, introduces us to the WORLD'S 1st FROZEN POPCORN!
WORLD'S 1st FROZEN POPCORN is Air-Popped, made with Real Handmade Caramel, No Preservatives or sprays, NON-GMO and we offer Vegan and Gluten-free flavors.
About Josh
The youngest of 3 sons, Josh made his living as a Key Grip in Hollywood for many years. Coming from a Show Biz family, Father and his late Great, Great Uncle, Lon Chaney (Man of 1000 Faces). Then he decided to pop popcorn.
It all started back in 1896, before popcorn was ever sold as a common snack. The Mad Popper's great grandmother had a caramel recipe that very few got to try. However, this amazing caramel recipe got passed down generation to generation.
In August of 2010, The Mad Popper's mom had renal failure and was rushed to the hospital. After being there for weeks, Josh was forced to do something he had dreaded for a long time. He asked for the 100-year-old recipe.Meanwhile, Josh's mom started her road to recovery, and got a chance to see her youngest son master their family's 100-year-old secret caramel recipe that is actually a vegan caramel. Josh and his partner Sulmaz met on skid row in down town Los Angeles a few months later. He wanted to share his popcorn with people on skid row and she was purchasing over 200 sandwiches to feed everyone. This has been the most amazing meeting of two people in one of the toughest areas in LA. They have since developed 'California Mad Poppers' together, creating an experience for those popcorn lovers unlike any other in the market placetoday and together they continue to give back and never forget why they came together in the first place!
Josh and the beautiful Sulmaz, continue to "Pay it Forward" by raising funds from the sale of their unique popcorn for charity and various causes. Check them out and see how you can have this popcorn (FYI...get enough for everybody!) and help others.

Jimmer Bolden, ( J.B.) Yorke Fryer  (Samuel) and Jacquelin Schofield (Sara) join Mother Love in studio to share the amazing life of J.B. Murray with the new musical "Visionary Man". Based on the true story of this illiterate farmer living in a shack in Glascock County, GA without water or electricity when, at age 70, he had the first of what he called his “visions from the Holy Spirit.” Over a period of 10 years, Murray’s vision-inspired paintings and non-semantic script, initially on scraps of writing paper, envelopes, adding machine tape, poster board, wood paneling, old stove tops and televisions picture tubes, and eventually on archival art paper, would capture the imagination of his friends and neighbors — and, ultimately, of an international community of museums, galleries and collectors.

Reviews of his performances include: …Jimmer Bolden, whose soaring voice gives Old Deuteronomy the presence and authority to choose the cat blessed for reincarnation in another place (CATS); Jimmer Bolden is in outstanding voice as the seductive, blues-singing plant (Little Shop); …a delicious new musical theatre find, jazz singer Jimmer Bolden – a man with stage presence and a glorious voice (Amelia’s Sugarplum Nightmare).
Actress, Vocalist, Voiceover Talent.  Five years ago, this Brooklyn native took a huge leap of faith and drove across county to relocate to Los Angeles where she fervently began pursuing her dream of being an actress.  She has a musical theater background but was introduced to film in 2008 while living in Atlanta, GA.

Kathy Mandotte, Creator/Designer of Wheelchair Solutions joins Mother Love in studio to share her story of being crushed by a 1200 lb boulder her long recovery to walk again and her vision to make wheelchair bound people more fashionable and comfortable.
Kathy's story
While working as a Landscape Designer, I suffered an injury to my spinal cord that left me confined to a wheelchair for several months. The experience made me aware of very basic oversights with standard wheelchair design. There was no secure place for personal items, insufficient cushions, and no style. Using a variety of colors and patterns, I designed and patented a custom cushion with a 3" high-density pad and a security pocket for my personal items along with matching arm covers. The cushion helped relieve some of the back pain but the ability to "dress" my wheelchair and create a wheelchair ensemble helped lift my mood considerably. My accident gave way to a new idea and my new dream: Wheelchair Solutions, featuring products created with the purpose of bringing style, comfort, and, most importantly, a smile to brighten your day, to wheelchair-assisted men and women tired of "chairing" the same old look.
Wheelchair Solutions' "Wardrobe For Your Wheelchair" allows wheelchair users to fashionize their chair with reversible seat covers, armrest covers, and accessories, including security pouches, in colorful hand-dyed, handmade, and washable fabric choices at a reasonable price. Wheelchair Solutions also offers a wide variety of walker accessory bags, arm slings and other merchandise.

Robyn Gardenhire, Artistic Director with The City of LA Ballet  joins Mother Love in studio to invite young girls and boys to learn the beautiful art of the ballet
About Robyn Gardenhire
Robyn Gardenhire, a native Angeleno, began dancing at a small school in Compton, California. By chance she was able to audition for the then Los Angeles Ballet's Jr. company and received a scholarship to study at the school. It was there that the doors to a professional career opened. Receiving scholarships and studying at American Ballet Theater School, San Francisco Ballet and New York Ballet, she gained her first contract with Joffrey II and danced at City Center and Jacobs Pillow. Robyn joined Cleveland Ballet soon after under the direction of Dennis Nahat and had original works developed on her as well as performing such principal roles as Choleric from Balanchine's Four Temperaments, Arabian Princes from Nutcracker, and Russian Girl in Serenade. Joining avant-garde choreographer Karlo Armitag she toured all of Europe. At the request of Mikhail Baryshnikov, Robyn joined American Ballet Theater and then his White Oak Project working with choreographers Lar Lubivitch and mark Morris. Ms. Gardenhire was the catalyst in establishing American Ballet Theaters diversity committee that introduces minority children to classical dance through their "Build a Ballet" program and was instrumental in providing many scholarships that where given to minority students to study in the school. After teaching and choreographing throughout the United States and abroad, Ms. Gardenhire returned to Los Angeles and opened the doors to City Ballet of Los Angeles in 2000. Her mission is to create a professional training school that provides full scholarships to students that are economically and socially disadvantaged and a company whose repertoire is a mixture of classical and contemporary dance. A company that can bring the music of J. S. Back and John Coltrane together in one program, and present new stories to this classical art form that nurture and evoke a sense of community to its audience. The Company debut was in 2003 at the Bing Theater.

Walter Dominguez, Documentary Film Maker/Writer/Director/Actor and Actress Shelly Morrison, his Wife of 41 years and Executive Producer of "Weaving the Past: Journey to Discovery" join Mother Love in studio to share their passion to share the story of his Grandfather's extraordinary life.
The film is set to have its world premiere on Friday, August 15 at 7:00 PM at the Laemmle Playhouse 7 theater complex in Pasadena's historic Playhouse District. The exclusive engagement runs through Thursday, August 21.
Featuring painfully researched archival material, and lovingly constructed re-enactments of past events (featuring many of Dominguez's younger relatives playing the parts of their ancestors), "Weaving the Past" is a remarkable odyssey into a painful past that offers comfort and promise for a better future.
Morrison, now 76, says documentary filmmaking awakened her creative process. The couple who have been married almost 40 years are already at work on their second documentary "Whitewashed Adobe: The Rise of Los Angeles," a story about the history of LA from 1850-1950. (By the way, Morrison is Sephardic and grew up speaking Ladino.)

The show features a cast of 20 international artists from diverse backgrounds in Middle Eastern dance and music, break dance, theatrical hip hop, contemporary, tribal and fusion dance, each bringing their own unique vision to the production.

At the age of 14, Danielo left Sao Paulo and journeyed to France to pursue a career in dance. He created a 'One Man Dance Show', an improv series of sketching, dancing, miming, musical references, and comedy. Danielo's popularity and reputation grew and he was contracted to perform in the elite "Partouche Casino Group" of Europe.
After a successful run of his "One Man Show", Danielo created his own company in Monaco called "Danielo Addicted" in 2004, at the age of 18. He formed partnerships with French celebrities and National TV. After years of continued success, "Danielo Addicted" kept diversifying and expanded to a clothing line ( Shut Up And Dance ) which is currently being distributed in France.
It was Danielo's dream to bring "Danielo Addicted" to America. After taking a leap of faith, he came to the U.S and magnified his artistic career in Los Angeles. Currently, he is working with the world renowned company, " BDE : Bellydance Evolution," led by the talented Jillina Carlano, a world famous bellydancer, has created an innovative new show : The Dark Side of the Crown, which mixes drama, mystery, humor and of course, dancing!

Allen Carter, Writer/Illustrator/ CEO of Carter Comics joins Mother Love in studio to introduce us to his latest comic book characters, Cosmic Force, Damn Tourist & Figure-of-Speech Mongoose.
A bit about Allen
I grew up with a love of drawing at a very young age, mostly due to the fact that I wanted to capture people or objects that caught my eye whenever my parents took me somewhere. I started with straight 1D and 2D illustration at age 6, before moving onto comic books at age 8. I made my very first comic book then, using about eight pages of legal sheet paper. Twenty-five years later, I'm an independent comic artist, writer, and publisher exhibiting at comic conventions, promoting and selling my professionally printed comic books, comic strips, and graphic novels. While I have to juggle a day job for now to pay the bills, I couldn't be happier.

Doctah B. Sirius, joins Mother Love for the afternoon to teach us new modalities in Holistic healing
Doctah B Sirius is a leading mind, body and spirit medicine man, certified doctor of metaphysics, master herbalist, natural remedy and healing pioneer, vibrational healer, and wellness educator. He is a widely respected healer with ever-growing followers, who trust him with their physical and mental well being. His mission is to create more harmony on the planet by transforming lives, one person at a time.
Born into a long line of healers, counselors, and teachers with roots in ancient America, Africa and India,Doctah B continues this long family tradition entrenched in natural healing and higher consciousness. Combining herbs and his own natural remedies with several techniques and modalities, he empowers individuals to heal physically, mentally, and spiritually, while guiding them to regain and maintain their overall health and mental wellness. "By addressing the root cause of our imbalances and deficiencies, we create a way of living that promotes not only physical health, but births an energetic shift to help optimize our true potential as vibrant beings on the planet," he expresses further affirming the significance of his work.
As a naturalist and prominent master herbalist, Doctah B has an intimate connection with thousands of medicinal herbs, plant derivatives, and natural elements. He specializes in the eradication of systemic parasites and toxins from the body. He developed the revolutionary Total Body Paracleanse Program that induces transformation on every level by systematically eradicating parasites, detoxifying on a cellular level, and releasing mental congestion, while restoring the body's natural energetic frequency. This natural herbal and elemental detoxification program has rejuvenated countless individuals around the world and those who have experienced it, deemed it among the very best. He understands and continually educates on how parasites, toxins, and deficiencies, along with mental imbalances are the root cause of disease. Hence, balancing the total body from the inside out is paramount.
Being a healing pioneer, Doctah B has developed a mental balancing system called "Subconscious Alignment" which has been instrumental in the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual transformation of many individuals. He strongly emphasizes periodic mental attunement and balancing to ensure our conscious mind and our subconscious past programming be in constant alignment, in order to relieve mental stress, respond versus react in life situations, and ultimately regain our personal power. This multidimensional process allows individuals to awaken and harness their body's own innate healing capabilities, break emotional barriers, reclaim their authority and experience higher states of consciousness. He is also a certified facilitator of the personal transformation technique PSYCH-K.
Another form of Doctah B's healing medicine is the gift of music. He channels what he refers to as "Medicine Music" for the soul, as a tool for healing, chakra balancing, and meditation. These keys to one's inner sanctum consist of healing frequencies that use cosmic resonance to help balance the hemispheres of the brain, elevate states of consciousness, release stress and create an environment conducive to healing.
Doctah B has been given the gift and innate ability to heal, motivate, educate, and inspire by instilling personal power, giving keys to self-realization and awakened clarity to those with whom he works. Channeling his ancestors, this Medicine Man continues on his global path providing natural solutions, sharing wisdom of the ancient healing arts, and giving what is needed to essentially live a wholistic life to help create a healthier, more peaceful planet naturally. And for that, we are eternally grateful.

Carl D. Mc Dowell, comic, actor, single Dad & more, joins Mother Love in studio for a high energy conversation about his life in Chicago, moving to Los Angeles after being 1 semester from graduating college to teach elementary school and working to transition from Stand Up to Improvisational comedy.
About Carl
Carl D. McDowell was born on the gang-ridden streets of the south side of Chicago. Although, he had his share of problems with gangs and brushes with the law as a teenager, sports ultimately lead him in the opposite direction. Carl excelled in football, baseball, and wrestling at Harper High School, and it just so happen that football bought him his ticket out of Chicago.
Carl came out to Hollywood in 2004 and began to do background work so he could see how things work behind the scenes. Later just to get a better look, he began his stint as a Production Assistant on shows like "Numbers", "The Riches", and "Criminal Minds". At any given point Carl have Produced, Written, Directed, Acted, and Edited films. To this date his fondest moments have been working along side Adam Sandler, "The Longest Yard", being directed by Cameron Crowe, "Elizabeth Town", and getting to be in a movie with Snoop Dog, "Bossn' up".
Carl D. McDowell is a smart, funny person that genuinely cares for people, and in this day and age of "Hollywood" that is a breath of fresh air. He is going to continue on his path in Hollywood as he has been in a few movies and he is ripping up stages on the comedy circuit. His mother, family, everyone close to him, and even the city of Chicago is proud of what has become of the little bad boy that used to tear through the neighborhood, and disrupt classrooms.

Sandy Stotzer & Billy Batz, hosts of " A Comic's Life" heard Fridays on latalkradio.com @ 4 :00 (PST) join ML in studio for a crazy fun time delving into Billy's insane dating life and how Sandy works hard to keep him grounded
About Sandy
Born in Chicago in 1952 to an unwed mother, Sandy Stotzer was immediately put up for adoption. Five months later, he was adopted by a wonderful couple (Sam and Midge Stotzer) and began to show signs of being funny even as a child. Although raised as a classical musician playing the trumpet from the age of five, Sandy was always a "closet comic."
Sandy's family eventually moved from Chicago to Northern California where he began to showcase his comedic talents while attending Saratoga High School helping to create Gross Gems Productions, an amateur film company specializing in comedy film shorts. The films were an instant hit, taking five awards out of their six films entered at the annual Eastman Kodak International Film Festival.
Gross Gems film showings became so popular, they later added "live sketch comedy" between films, creating a unique and well rounded ninety minute show, selling out every performance. Forty years later their films still run today on television.
Although accepted at The Julliard School of Music in New York City, Sandy chose California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles for his college experience. It was here that Sandy fell in love with radio, television and the entertainment world in general.
After college, Sandy moved back to Northern California where he was given his own weekly television talk show during the early days of cable. Years later he moved back to Los Angeles where he performed regularly at "The Comedy Store" and "The Improv" in a comedy improvisational group and eventually worked his way into stand-up comedy. The rest is history. For more years then he'd like to admit, Sandy has shared his hilarious style of insanity with millions of people coast to coast performing in clubs, colleges, numerous television commercials, national stand-up spots on networks such as BET (Black Entertainment Television) and finally to his ABC Pilot. Today Sandy has been married to his beautiful, very successful andtolerant wife Beatrice, for the past thirty eight years. Without her love and support Sandy is convinced his life wouldn't have a fraction of the richness it has today. They have two grown sons, Nick (his oldest) who is a Pastor along with his wife Kimberly at a church in Southern California and Tony (Sandy's youngest son) is a budding television producer in the Los Angeles area. Sandy is more than proud of them all.
About Billy
co-host of "A Comics Life", grew up in group homes throughout Albany, New York. He had dreams of becoming a comedian... or a male exotic dancer. Quickly realizing that his less than perfect build and overly hairy body was less than Ideal for the exotic industry, he instead aimed for the one reachable dream and set his goals on over drive. Billy got his start in radio as A regular guest on Combat Radio then moved on to co-host Guy Talk Radio and feels blessed to be able to work with the talented Sandy Stotzer on "A Comics Life".
Today, Billy is one of the hardest working, best kept secrets in the stand up comedy world. He has performed in front of sold out comedy shows and has appeared on several television shows and films including Reno 911, I Am Comic, Sleeper Cell, Yes Man and many others.

Barbara Cuthbertson, MA Author of "Conversations with E.V.E."
Women's TRUE power - where it came from, how we lost it, how we can get it back!
calls in from Lackland, FL to talk about the TRUE POWER of E.V.E., Every Vagina on Earth. She rips the lid off of the, Myth of Male Superiority, The ManPlan and more. This is a powerful conversation for E.V.E. and men.
About Barbara
Like most labors of love writing "Conversations with EVE" (Every Vagina on Earth) grew out of a desire to help people. My degree is in Applied Cultural Anthropology. And from my very first anthropology class I wanted to understand why people behave the way they do and why society operates the way it does. I had intended to study psychology, but soon realized that it isn't the "abnormal" behavior that's so fascinating. It's the behavior that is considered "normal."
It took me twenty-one years (1969-1990) to complete my Master's degree, sometimes just being able to take one class at a time and sometimes being a full time student for a stretch. And during those twenty-one years there were quite a few things happening in my life besides college: marriage, motherhood, divorce, employment, remarriage, raising a son, being part of a large extended family, sailing, building an earth sheltered house nights and weekends with my husband, windsurfing, etc.

Songhai "SUNNY" Armstead joins ML in studio to let us know why she is the BEST candidate for Superior Court Judge of LA County #97 Seat.
About SUNNY
In over a decade of service as a prosecutor with the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office, I have been blessed to have a wide range of experience working in the Environmental, Central Trials, and the Neighborhood Prosecutor Program sections of the office. I have aggressively prosecuted everything from petty theft to violent crimes and worked hard to address the many quality of life concerns plaguing our community. I have headed multiple operations and tackled everything from anti-piracy and counterfeit to the reduction of crime, urban blight and decay along Skid Row in downtown Los Angeles.
My multiple responsibilities have included creating programs—I created and now oversee Operation VALOR (Veterans' Alternative Legal Options and Resources) designed to direct Veteran's out of the traditional court system into restorative justice programs which include housing and services and HALO (Homeless Alternatives to Living On the street) a restorative justice program for homeless, mentally ill, addicted and/or co-occurring disorder populations. I also oversee the City's award winning Dispute Resolution Program.
Teaching is also a passion. I have designed and conducted numerous trainings for judges, attorneys, police officers, community members, graduate and undergraduate students. Both in the office and as a member of my community, I have advised public and private entities, served on boards and managed employees and volunteers.
I will come to the job of judge with a deeper understanding of the possible complexities of a court case. I understand the intricacies of law enforcement, the necessity of being tough on crime, the long and short-term effects judicial rulings have on communities, the requirements necessary to rehabilitate non-violent offenders, and how to mediate a case when a trial is not necessary. This vast variety and expertise cannot be said about any other judicial candidate.

Matches were contested under the aggressive Catch-as-Catch-Can Wrestling rules. Only the toughest guys competed. There are only two ways to win: Pin or Submission. There are no points awarded, wrestlers cannot game the point system, they have to beat their opponent.
We are bringing back REAL professional wrestling.

Catch-as-Catch-Can, or Catch Wrestling was the foundation of modern folkstyle, freestyle, pro wrestling and MMA. Many great American wrestlers were Catch Wrestlers, like Frank Gotch, Farmer Burns, Tom Jenkins, Earl Caddock and Billy Wicks, Famous International Catch Wrestlers included, Karl Gotch, Billy Robinson, Kazushi Sakuraba, Roy Wood, Yoshiaki Fujiwara.
The Catch Wrestling Alliance is a Catch Wrestling Promotion that works with the highest level Catch Wrestlers from around the world with the goal of reviving the great sport of Catch-as-Catch-Can Wrestling.

Victoria Kheel, Creator & CEO of Poppy's Natural Clean, eco friendly home cleaning products joins us to share inthe success of her growing family business, getting shelf space in Ralph's on Ventura Blvd in Sherman Oaks and expanding the product line.
About Victoria
No, I'm not a chemist, nor was Chemistry a favorite subject of mine in school. I'm just a mom who cares about maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I admit to being a "nester", I love my home; and seeking out ways of making it better in every way, is a passion of mine.
A few years ago I decided to focus on the idea of making my home self?producing. I developed an organic garden, planted many fruit trees, and adopted 3 baby chicks with the intention of reaping the profits from their egg laying. At that time, I was also taking classes in holistic nutrition, with the hopes of learning the best ways for my 2 teenage boys and I to benefit from what we eat. One of the courses focused on "toxins in the home". This is where it all began...
First order of business was to empty my cleaning closet of any cleaners that contained ingredients that I couldn't pronounce. Chances are, those are the ingredients that burned my eyes, made me sneeze and cough, gave me rashes, didn't work very well, and actually cost more money than they were worth.
Then came the endless hours of research to figure out what natural ingredients worked to clean what surfaces safely. My nutritional background gave me knowledge of the basic relationship between alkaline and acid, the key to cleaning naturally. The fun began when I started to see how great my new cleaners were working.
I celebrated every month that went by where I didn't need to go to the store to buy laundry detergent, Windex, Comet, Clorox bleach, toxic toilet bowl cleaner or furniture polish. Then the light bulb went off! I needed to share my products with as many people and households as possible. Not only had I reduced the toxins in my home, I was also reducing the toxins that went out into the environment. Poppy's Naturally Clean was born.
In addition to the Poppy's Naturally Clean products, for you convienence, I offer many other eco-friendly and "green" products that hold up to my high standards. I hope you enjoy using them as much as I do! Go Green!

RAIDERNATION Members, "The Violator" (Wayne Marby), Fritz Wilson (The Minister), Shaleaf Perkins (Mr. GreenLeaf ) and Smiley (The MasterMind) join Mother Love in studio to promote the 5th Annual "Cruise For A Cause" with 100% of the proceeds going to help support families and bring awareness to childhood Cancer because, "Every Child Deserves A Future". The FREE FAMILY Event is May 24, 2014 @ 21212 Avalon Blvd Carson, CA 90745 10AM- 4PM will include a live DJ, Raffles, Food vendors, Live Performances, and much more
About These Members
The Violator, Wayne Marby is a union Carpenter by profession and is one of the most intimidating of all in RaiderNation. It takes him 2 hours to get in his character including his Silver & Black "War Paint".
Born and raised in Mississippi, Maybry lived in an area that didn't have a local NFL team, so the teams that were broadcast most frequently on his local stations were the Kansas City Chiefs and the Pittsburgh Steelers. I know—sad existence, isn't it? However, Wayne made the best of it by rooting for whatever team was the rival of his friends' teams. He noticed rather quickly that the Raiders were hated by most every Chiefs and Steelers fan and seemed to play those teams a lot.
As if he needed another reason, he also noticed the color scheme and the logo of the men from the east bay really appealed to him. The silver and black uniforms were unlike all the other "fruit of the loom teams," (his words, not mine) in the league and the crossed swords and shield reminded him of the times of knights and kings—an ideal that fascinates him to this day.
So there it was, Wayne Maybry was an Oakland Raiders fan living in Mississippi in 1970. With that came an undying desire to move to California. Wayne even told his mother he was going to make this move somehow, some way, some day. And The rest is history

Mr. Wilson joined 'UOM' in 1992 as the Coordinator of prison ministry; a program that was designed implemented and continues to operate.

Veronica Blair, An aerialist of elegance and true excellence, calls in from the Bay Area to share her passion for circus performance. As one of only a hand full of African American Aerialist, she wants to make sure the performers before her stories are told and shared for future generations. This is her 3rd Annual "A Circus Tribute.
In an unwavering effort to document the contributions of the largely unrecognized African American circus performing professionals who preceded her generation, Blair produces and performs benefit circus shows to benefit the planned feature-length documentary film "The Uncle Junior Project," named for legendary and relatively un-credited circus pioneer Emanuel "Uncle Junior" Ruffin.
About Veronica
Veronica Blair has studied with some of the most celebrated and prominent artists in her field. From greats LaNorma Fox and Pamela Hernandez, who bears the distinction of being the very first African-American aerialist to perform with Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus; to the renowned "God Father of the Tissu" Gerard Fasoli of Ecole Superieure des Arts du Cirque, Belgium.
Veronica started her acrobatic career at the age of 14 with Make*A*Circus, a community based circus. In addition she trained Chinese Acrobatics at the San Francisco School of Circus Arts (now known as Circus Center). Her first professional performance was at the age of 17, making her one of the youngest professional African-American trapeze artists in the U.S. Shortly after, Veronica was personally selected by Cedric Walker, the founder of the Universoul Circus, as a single trapeze artist. Under Mr. Walker's supervision, Veronica rapidly developed as an aerialist, and was the show's resident aerialist for 5+ years.
After her residency with the circus, Veronica performed with world-renowned performance groups in various productions around the world including AntiGravity, Universal Studios Japan, and AFRIKA! AFRIKA! the most successful circus show in Germany.
Veronica Blair's aerial dance is an exquisite and original technique, with a combination of sheer strength and pure style. Her combining of aerial tissue with traditional elements from aerial straps create a visually stunning and technically versatile act.

In April 2013 the CDC Reported that 1 in 50 school age children are diagnosed with autism in America. These children will be adults before we know it. As a global society we must educate and employ individuals dealing with autism to utilize the gifts, talents and uniqueness they possess.

Barbara Lazaoff, Co owner of The World Famous Spago , calls in to share her passion for making hunger in Los Angels a scourge of the past as she celebrates Spago's 30th Annual Seder Dinner at Spago Beverly Hills. She continues to shed a blinding light on hunger and how it adversely affects our most vulnerable young and our Elders.
This benefits MAZON, "A Jewish Response To Hunger" which helps feed the LA Community that benefits ALL who need good nourishment to flourish.
About Barbara's vision:
"I began the tradition at the original Spago Hollywood as a means to bring
the Jewish community together on the festive holiday, as well as those of different faiths. I believe that if we all share our traditions, myths are dispelled and communication is sparked. This leads to better understanding and tolerance for all cultures. Also, there is such a profound need in Los Angeles, so many go hungry every day, elders miss many meals and children who go to school unable to concentrate because they are hungry. This event has become a warm and delicious tradition at Spago Beverly Hills, those who attend love the Spago cuisine and their go home package of oven baked matzohs and macaroons. About 40% of those that attend are not Jewish and some experience their very first Seder at this event; where they get a sophisticated introduction to Jewish Cuisine."

Jack Kennedy, Actor, Director, Comic and Veteran joins Mother Love in studio for a fun time about his life, career and making the bold step to be an Indie Film Maker. His film "You Are Here" based on an incident that happened to him, is in pre production.
About Jack
Jack moved around so much he's not really sure where he's from, he just knows he is now in Los Angeles. His seedy past includes graduating from West Point, graduating Airborne and Air Assault Schools and being an Army Officer. He spent time doing theater in New York and Chicago before coming to LA; he also performed a One Man Show as his namesake, JFK, at the West End Theater in Dallas, TX. Jack also honed his acting skills as a Financial Wholesaler for Hartford Life and a Construction Superintendent for Pulte Homes. After too many years of 'paying the bills' as a nightclub bouncer and doorguy, Jack now refuses to do anything except acting or writing, his true passions. With the help of his awesome management company, Bohemia Group, the decision has worked out well thus far, keeping him from having to go hike the Appalachian Trail while pondering if there are any other lines of work he could do without putting a gun to his head. He has written and produced two short films to date and is in pre-production on his first feature, You Are Here, that is slated to film in Shamrock, TX in 2014. For all you single ladies out there, Jack too is single, but no woman has ever liked him for more than 10 minutes so he spends most his spare time with his dog Larry who probably sick of Jack's antics as well but lacks the capacity to vocalize it.

Sandy Stotzer, Host of A Comic's Life on LA Talk Radio Channel 1 Mondays @ 5 PM & Fridays @ 4 PM joins Mother Love in studio for a rip roaring time chatting about relationships and how to talk sexy with your mate.
Born in Chicago in 1952 to an unwed mother, Sandy Stotzer was immediately put up for adoption. Five months later, he was adopted by a wonderful couple (Sam and Midge Stotzer) and began to show signs of being funny even as a child. Although raised as a classical musician playing the trumpet from the age of five, Sandy was always a "closet comic."
Although accepted at The Julliard School of Music in New York City, Sandy chose California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles for his college experience. It was here that Sandy fell in love with radio, television and the entertainment world in general.
The rest is history. For more years then he'd like to admit, Sandy has shared his hilarious style of insanity with millions of people coast to coast performing in clubs, colleges, numerous television commercials, national stand-up spots on networks such as BET (Black Entertainment Television) and finally to his ABC Pilot. Today Sandy has been married to his beautiful, very successful and tolerant wife Beatrice, for the past thirty eight years. Without her love and support Sandy is convinced his life wouldn't have a fraction of the richness it has today. They have two grown sons, Nick (his oldest) who is a Pastor along with his wife Kimberly at a church in Southern California and Tony (Sandy's youngest son) is a budding television producer in the Los Angeles area. Sandy is more than proud of them all.

Fran Meadows, Author of The Truth Behind The Secret "Infertility" calls in from CT to bravely share her and her husband's story of years of struggling trying to have a baby.
About Fran
The Truth Behind The Secret "Infertility" is a memoir that touches on the honesty of struggling to conceive, filled with raw, deep emotions with a taste of witty humor. Readers will relate to the feelings of another woman opening up about things that many dare to share. This book will make you feel less alone and like you are having a conversation with the Author as you read along. Written to give others hope through their journey you will feel the silence and stigma of infertility lift as you read along with showing the real inner strength of a couple shine through many painful experiences.
It was written from the heart -come join in my journey, cry, laugh, relate and know that you're not alone. Don't be embarrassed about infertility, keep your head high and face it bravely! It is an inspirational journey offering hope, inspiration and strength to those going through this struggle now.
My husband and I only wanted what many couples do - a child. For years we attempted to get pregnant naturally with disheartening results. Reluctantly, we sought out help through fertility doctors and continued to push to add a child to our family. Disappointment after disappointment led us to almost give up, yet we kept up the fight.
Our first pregnancy ended in a still birth that totally shattered our spirits. The emotional pain was almost too much to bear. The strength of my husband encouraged us to get back on the horse (so to speak), and continue our battle to get pregnant. In the end, our dreams did come true.

Saundra Mc Clain, Director, & Cheri Lynne VandenHeuvel, actress join MLove in studio to enlighten us about a piece of women's history with their play "Flyin' West.
The play writtenby Atlanta, GA based writer Pearl Cleage.
About The Play
The Homestead Act of 1860 offered 320 acres of free land to U.S. citizens willing to settle in the western states. Based in part on actual journal entries, Flyin' West highlights the struggles of black homesteaders who, following the advice of charismatic leader Benjamin "Pap" Singleton, took advantage of the Act to flee the racism and oppression of the South. Cleage gives us a glimpse of the tribulations faced by freed slaves even after the abolition of slavery, and of the quarter of a million unmarried or widowed black women who moved west to escape a white male-dominated world.
Flyin' West runs Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m., March 14 through April 6. Two preview performances take place on Wednesday, March 12 and Thursday, March 13 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $42 on Thursdays and $47 on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, except opening night (March 14) for which tickets are $52 and includes a post-performance reception with the actors.

They are:
Daemontrae Windham, 18 Student
I caught my first case at 16, it wasn't meant to be. I was never a gang banger, but all I hung around was crips not bloods, I was cool with some bloods but never hung with them. In South Central they say gang banging isn't an option, but it was for me because I was stronger than a lot of my friends were. I met the Brotherhood Crusade through Mrs. Lee, a probation officer I was at Cal Poly Pomona and I got introduced to George Weaver and Sam Williams. They took us on a road where we can be successful and I appreciate it a lot. To this day I'm on a road of being a successful person. Brotherhood Crusade taught me how to dress proper, talk to people, have manners, and also be respectful to women. They also taught me how to eat proper and set up a table. I have done plenty of activities with the Brotherhood Crusade golf tournaments.
Shaquan Woods, 18 College Student
Growing up I had a very interesting life. I experienced many different changes and survived a lot of adverse circumstances. The poor choices I made placed me in the center of several life threatening situations. Moreover, though I did not understand it at the time, my choices caused me to miss out on certain opportunities that could have placed me in a better position than the one I am in today.
The last time I got shot, I made a promise to myself, GOD, my uncle and my mom while they were visiting me in the hospital, to give up gang banging and get my life situated! It was hard to leave all my past alone and create a better future knowing that I would have to limit myself from certain areas and cut off all connections with anyone with whom I used to talk that associated with gang bangers. I also started hanging out with my cousin Daemontre a lot more and he introduced me to this program called The Brotherhood Crusade.
After that the program helped me with all my problems. It helped me finish my high school G.E.D, get employed, and gain a totally different mindset of what I have and who I am.
Damion Rogers, 18 H.S. Senior
In 2011, I started to go to parties and have fun and I went to a party with one of my close friends that I played basketball with. We were leaving the party and the party got shot up at the end and we ran and bullets went past me and hit my friend in the head. I was devastated thinking what if those bullets hit me. Through the year of 2011 I lost a lot of family members, my Great Grandfather died ,my great grandmother and my big cousin. 2011 was a horrible year for me. In 2012, one day I got a call from my mom saying my cousin was shot and killed down the street from my high school. Every day I pass the street, I look up and say I miss u cuzzo and watch over me. Later in that year I started to stop going to classes because I had a mentality of not going to class and I didn't care about school. In 2013, my friend Daemontrae called me and asked do I want to go to a meeting about jobs and I said ok. That day I met Mrs. Lee, the best mentor and probation officer I met. She was telling us about a opportunity to visit Cal Poly Pomona and Mt. Sac, to get an experience of what college students do. It was an excellent experience, we had to do a specific project and I had history. The day of the project for the Cal Poly Pomona class I met Mr. Weaver the most intelligent guy I know. He told me even though slaves were freed we still go through slavery. Mr. George Weaver is an excellent man. He showed me and taught me something I never knew before. Later in the year I met Mr. Lewis one of the best mentors and drivers I've ever had. Mr. Lewis and Mr. Weaver are two excellent men who changed my life and some of my friends lives. I These young men are turning their lives around for good, mentor each other and to have the capacity to reach back as leaders.
About Mr. Weaver
Mr. Weaver retired from the environmental field to pursue his first passion – youth development. As a result, he developed an accelerated alternative education program that featured accredited community college and university classes taught in an offsite environment to non-traditional students (high school dropouts, adults with less than a 12th grade education, individuals who are otherwise intimidated by traditional post-secondary education settings, youth in the juvenile justice system, etc.). More than 5,000 students matriculated through Mr. Weaver's program in less than four years; demonstrating that even the most "difficult to reach, difficult to serve" populations can succeed in school when given the opportunity and proper circumstances.

Lisa Walsh, Creator of Persole Chic Shades calls in to chat about her unique take on the parasol/umbrella. While sitting under a hot black umbrella one day watching her son's baseball game, former interior designer and Persole founder Lisa Walsh realized there are simply no chic, functional sun shade products available for the modern woman. A mother of two young children, Lisa was keenly aware of the health risk that overexposure to the suns ultraviolet rays can be to all ages. Constantly observing other women and children making every effort to block the damaging rays with their ineffective parasols and rain umbrellas, Lisa was inspired to create a genuine UV shade solution that would not only bring benefit to anyone who loves the sun, but also make a definitive fashion forward impression in any environment.

I am an activist. Sometimes it rocks. Sometimes it feels like I am swimming against the stream. But it always feels true. I woke up to realizing that something wasn't right when I was healing from my eating disorder and I determined to become part of the change. I summoned my inner activist, the courageous part of me that intuitively knew something wasn't right with a culture presenting limiting prescriptions for young women. I sat Zen for years to get to the heart of the matter, rewire my brain and transform my life.

Tehrah, Singer/Songwriter and Grammy Nominee contender for 3 Grammys in Christian Music, joins Mother Love in studio to share her heartfelt journey through pain, abuse, divorce and redemption through music and song.
About Tehrah
Even as a child, I understood that music really is the "Universal Language." Now an adult, having lived a long, full life, I know this as truth. I believe we are the closest to God when we're in service to all living beings using our unique gifts. When I sing my heart, others identify and are moved in profound ways. Knowing that my voice can play but a small part in the healing of just "one" soul gives me a feeling that's beyond words. It is with the gentle, loving guidance of the Holy Spirit that a prophetic, powerful message and my purpose to serve humanity comes through.It terrifies me to no end to expose the most vulnerable aspects of myself when I speak, but when I sing, I light up. And those who come within earshot of me doing "my thing" light up too—be it a rockin', "kick ass" gritty rock tune, a ballad of heartache and longing, or a deeply spiritual, reverent song to God.It is this that I live for — to feel the vibration, the air, the spirit and the force that comes through me as I sing my heart out. Giving everything I have to those I sing to is the closest thing to flying, and I am free...Now, you know ME.

Deb Anderson, calls in from Canada to share her passion for vibrational energy and her gift to help heal. She is a writer, healer, medium, mother, daughter, wife, grandmother, friend and ever evolving spiritual vibrational being.
Born in England, Debbie is a natural healer who has worked in the magical sphere of spirituality all of her life, bringing forth many modalities that have manifested and evolved along the way.
She has been insightfully using Tarot decks and giving intuitive spiritual readings for over 30 years in the UK, Canada, US and Australia. Her psychic mediumship abilities have opened her to many mystical communications, including the creation of Vibrational Energy, which she defines as being "gifted" to her from spirit.
The Vibrational Healing Energy is a "hands on" healing technique which applies the gentlest touch of one vibration with another by way of communicating with the body, mind & soul, allowing the "self" to create an individual energy pattern to live and heal by. This led her to the creation of both the Vibrational Sound Therapy CD & the Vibrational Energy Cards, a 52-Oracle card deck developed to allow all vibratory beings to discover and unlock the secrets to create inner and outer magical energy healing for themselves.

Brandi Burkhardt, Broadway and television star from the world premiere musical When You Wish: The Story of Walt Disney, joins Mother Love in studio to chat about her career and much more of who she is and where she's going.

The play is currently on stage through November 3 after a three week run in LA at UCLA's distinguished 600 seat Fred Playhouse.

About Brandi
She attended New York University Tisch School of the Arts - Lee Strasberg Studio.
Burkhardt first hit the small screen in 1997, when she competed in the Miss Teen USA pageant as Miss Maryland Teen USA. The National Pageant was won by Shelly Moore of Tennessee. She later moved to New York to attend New York University, where she won the Miss Manhattan pageant, the Miss New York pageant and competed for Miss America 2000. Burkhardt performed vocal talent at that pageant, singing "Take Me As I Am", which she would later record as Emma on the concept album for the film and national tour concert version of Jekyll & Hyde, Jekyll & Hyde: Resurrection.
Burkhardt's first major credit was the Jekyll and Hyde: Resurrection Tour, in the starring role of Emma Carew. This version of Jekyll and Hyde was told in concert form. A new song, "If You Only Knew", was written for her by Leslie Bricusse and Frank Wildhorn. Her Broadway debut came when she was cast as Lucie Manette in the Broadway musical adaptation of A Tale of Two Cities, which opened for previews on August 19, 2008 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre in New York[2] and had an official opening of September 18, 2008. She was persuaded to audition for the show by star James Barbour, who was at a dinner meeting with her. The production announced on November 4 that it would be closing on November 16, but the producers announced on November 7 that due to poor ticket sales the following week, the production would close on November 9, 2008. She then played Sophie Sheridan in the Broadway production of Mamma Mia. She began her run on January 27, 2009 replacing Allison Case. Burkhardt played her final performance on September 20, 2009 and was succeeded by Alyse Alan Louis.
Burkhardt has been attached to several other projects. Most prominently, she was connected to Wonderland: Alice's New Musical Adventure by Frank Wildhorn. Singing the role on several demo recordings, she also premiered the song "Once More I Can See" at the Graz Theatre Festival as part of the "Frank Wildhorn & Friends" series, this role was originally developed for her. The show made its world premiere on December 5 in Tampa, Florida starring Janet Dacal. However, her voice was heard on several advertisements for the Tampa premiere including radio and TV spots. She was also a part of the workshops and demos for Rudolf - the Last Kiss as Mary Vetsera, and performed the role of Mercedes in The Count of Monte Cristo recordings, earning a double platinum record for its European Release and workshops (opposite James Stacy Barbour, her co-star in Tale). Both of these shows have seen large success in Europe.
In addition, Brandi was attached to Bonnie & Clyde, having done readings of this as well, and also concept recordings of music from Don Black and Frank Wildhorn. The musical "Mary Shelley's Frankenstein" was written specifically for her, though the show has not had an official performance or recording yet. It is unknown the status of the project or if Burkhardt will star.

Mother Love & Mr. Kennedy discuss current events from homelessness, politics, The LAX shooting and more.

Kevin Yungman, Singer/ Actor joins Mother Love in studio to share his mission of music that can help heal.
About Kevin
I was born in Argentina where I began my singing "career" at the age of 2. Since my childhood, I have always had an inclination towards the arts. I could be consistently found asking my parents to take me to local productions, performing in school plays, and singing everyone in my house (and sometimes myself) to sleep.
When I turned 7, my parents, myself, and my newly born brother Axel moved to the United States. Not knowing much english was a struggle, but even though the language and customs changed, my desire for singing and acting remained strong. Any chance I could get to perform, I would take it.
Just as I was beginning to get accustomed to everything, we moved...again. Landing in sunny Florida was an adventure in itself, beaches weren't exactly common in Utah.
My parents enrolled me in a one year program at a school that offered acting and singing. I walked into the singing class and didn't expect what I had coming, 20 girls. In any other situation I would have been the happiest boy on the planet, but when I realized that these girls all had the voices of angels and in comparison I...Well...Didn't, it gave me some strong motivation to train myself vocally HARD and FAST. I spent at least 8 hours every single day of that summer practicing and improving myself vocally. On the days I would lose my voice I would spend the 8 hours practicing things like diaphragmatic breathing, learning new songs, and playing guitar and piano. I finished that summer a completely different singer, now it was time to put all that hard work to the test.
In the following years I had the honor of receiving first place trophies in multiple national singing competitions and got to experience my first "mini-tour" with a youth Broadway group I was accepted into.
At sixteen, I received the shock of my LIFE when that "mini-tour" turned into guest starring in a Broadway show and then leading the national tour of a Broadway company the following year!
Working with Neil Goldberg and the "Cirque Dreams" company was one of the best experiences I know I will ever have in my life. Those people are some whom I will love and respect forever.
Since then, I have had the blessings of studying in New York City's most competitive conservatory, being a part of multi-million dollar full length feature films, recording in studios with and for some of the leading people in the music industry, and performing for celebrities and political figures including the vice president of the United States.
I currently live in Los Angeles, where I am continuing my performing career and living life to the fullest!

Sam Thurman,President, Ethel Lopez,VP of A Just Cause & Cliff Stewart, the Brother of one of the 6... flew in from Denver, CO to share the afternoon with Mother Love in studio to passionately speak about the IRP 6. They are Kendrick Barnes, Gary L. Walker, Demetrius K. Harper, Clinton A. Stewart, David A. Zirpolo and David A. Banks These six business men were subjected to an unjust business raid, trumped up federal charges and unlawful incarceration in a Colorado prison.
About A Just Cause and their mission:
A Just Cause is a volunteer organization that was established in 2005 by a group of concerned citizens who were witness to a federal criminal case that was grossly over-criminalized. After seeing how a case can be misconstrued as criminal, and peoples' lives turned upside down, A Just Cause was formed to fight abuse and misuse of power within the justice system. After launching AJC, it became apparent that over-criminalization is a growing trend. AJC is made up of regular citizens, professionals, attorneys, and those who have been wrongfully convicted who want to bring attention to the problem and help facilitate change.
The mission of A Just Cause (AJC) is to join in the fight against over-criminalization of trivial/obscure acts and provide competent legal representation in criminal cases where misconduct is suspected on the part of judges, prosecutors and/or court appointed defense counsel. A Just Cause will offer assistance through a criminal defense attorney referral service or help subsidize legal and court fees. A Just Cause will also work diligently to assist other organizations who are working for criminal justice reform.
As an organization, and as individuals, we value integrity, honesty, openness, personal and organizational excellence, organizational process improvement, self-improvement, and mutual respect. We are committed to the people we help, their families and our partner organizations. We take on big challenges, will be unwavering in our efforts and pride ourselves on seeing situations through to the end. We hold ourselves accountable to our clients, stakeholders, partners, staff and volunteers by honoring our commitments, providing results, and striving for excellence in all that we do. We believe in not letting grass grow under our feet, continually pressing toward the goal, and getting it done.
A Just Cause and Friends of Justice have been investigating a Colorado federal criminal case involving six businessmen believed to have been wrongly convicted. "This is a case involving six executives of a software development company called IRP Solutions Corporation," says Sam Thurman of A Just Cause. "A Just Cause, Friends of Justice and other advocates for the defendants refer to the case as the IRP6 (freetheirp6.org)," adds Thurman. Court records show defendants as Kendrick Barnes, Gary L. Walker, Demetrius K. Harper, Clinton A. Stewart, David A. Zirpolo and David A. Banks.
After reviewing court records, A Just Cause and Friends of Justice are convinced that this case represents the dark side of our justice system. "This is a story about how prosecutorial tunnel vision created a tragic communication failure," says Dr. Alan Bean, Executive Director, Friends of Justice.

Debbie Elder, founder of "Set Them Up for Success calls in from Houston, TX to share with us a new thought provoking way of educating children in many areas, with methods to deal with unruly Tweens &Teens, smarter ways of communication and the understanding that it is a village effort to get our youth, Teachers, Parents and Caregivers a more meaningful way through and to education.
About Debbie
My name is Debbie Elder and I am the owner and founder of the Set Them Up For Success program. Back in 2000, I came across an article in "Reader's Digest." The story was about a man in his early forties who had been asked by his boss to take some clients on a fishing trip. That night as he was sharing this opportunity with his wife, her reaction shocked him. She replied, "Aren't you worried about making a fool of yourself? These are big clients and you don't know how to fish!" It was his reply that had such a profound effect on me. He told his wife he had fished with his uncle one summer when he was nine years old. In his mind, if he could do it at nine, he could surely fish at forty-three!

Michael Baisden, Author, Mentor, Businessman and much more calls in the studio to speak to the audience about the importance of African American Men stepping up to become mentors and solid role models for young African American boys.
About Michael Baisden
When it comes to entertaining, enlightening and educating, no one in talk radio compares to Michael Baisden. His high energy and love for interacting with his listeners is just one reason for the popularity and success of The Michael Baisden Show. Michael ignites heated discussions with explosive episodic themes like: Living Your Dream, Your Body Is Your Temple, Do Women Know What They Want, and Pimps In The Pulpit. His radio career began in 2003 when 98.7 KISS FM in New York City offered him a position as the afternoon drive-time host. Because of budget constraints the station was unable to offer him a salary. Michael's response was, "Just give me the damned mic!" And sure enough, within six months, their afternoon drive ratings went from number 9 to number 1.
After eight months of consistent high ratings, Michael suggested taking his show national but management was apprehensive, suggesting that New York wasn't ready. A few months later, Michael threatened to quit if management did not pursue a syndication deal. "There was no doubt in my mind that I could have one of the hottest shows on radio! I knew the impact it would have on people all across the country and I wasn't taking no, for an answer," Michael rebutted.

Mary was born and raised on a farm near Boise, Idaho, two cow fields away from the Broadway Drive-In Movie Theater.

After moving to Los Angeles, Mary became involved in the local theater scene with her play, PAPERBACK BOOKS, which starred John Fleck, before he became one of the infamous "NEA Four." Mary's antiwar farce, WACS IN KHAKI, premiered at the Los Angeles Actors Theatre, and moved to the Company Theatre, directed by Paul Linke. Wordsmiths, facilitated by Silas Jones at the Los Angeles Theatre Center, inspired Mary to write and her one act plays resulting from that workshop still enjoy successful productions countrywide and internationally.

Theresa King, Mighty woman of GOD and Inspirational Jazz Singer joins Mother Love in studio to share her passion for the Lord and her mission of ministry through music.
About Queen Theresa King
There are many things that can be said about the extraordinary life of the multi-talented Theresa King. Born in the Jazz loving city of New Orleans, she desired to learn the principles of God very early in life. This is because she was born into a family that was heavily influenced by the teachings of the bible. Her godfather pastured the church, and both her mother and godmother were choir members who were both soloist and seamstresses. Theresa began learning to sew at a very young age. Her father was a guitar player who owned a very successful lawn care business. He always told her to work for herself. She began singing gospel music in public by age 5. By the age of 10, she began writing songs and accepting invitations to sing and speak during community events, and school programs. Her mother taught her how to sew and she began doing fashion shows with a close friend by the age of 14. She began receiving special acknowledgements for her community involvement by age 15.
What the community or even many of her family members did not know is that at the same intensity of Theresa's drive to serve God, was the opposite energy that was assign to stop her from serving Him. Having her first experience of child molestation at the age of 5 by the baby sitters son, she grew into a life of promiscuity that led to a suicide attempt by the age of 10 and the experience of a rape by 15. Theresa began running away from home and staying at the Charity hospital where she would go and visit the sick and elderly. There she would pray and experience the healing power of God. It was in this season of her life where God convinced her that nothing will ever separate her from His Love.
Theresa's passion for the word of God grew as she became older and had more life experiences. She has learned the process of application of the principles of God through operations during adversity and calamity. From the challenges of an abusive husband by 19, while raising 4 children by 28. Theresa's passion for giving and service to others became the avenue in which God would use to set her free. Come with us as we take a glace into her awe inspiriting life of service where she has been advocating for women's ministries, and lobbing before congressional leaders for change in social justice issues. She has advocated for millions to be spent in family preservation programs. Theresa has also received the 2003 Outstanding Business Woman of the Year award from the American Business Women Association. She sat as board president for Two Boys Group Homes. She has also sat as Vice President of the original Long Beach Head Start Council for the City of Long Beach. Theresa has received over 50 federal, state and local community recognitions including the California State Assembly, National Council of Negro Women and the Community Pride Award presented by the late grate Congresswoman Juanita Millender McDonald. Theresa has single handedly raised millions in in-kind gifts and has supported families throughout the southern California area as well as other states in the country.
Through living the word of God, Theresa has learned the importance of following after passion and the things you love. In her case, it is her first loves, Music and the Word. Theresa has found away to minister the word of God to music in a way that grooves the mind body and soul. The arrangements of her melodies, resonates in the spirit in a way that is totally life changing. The melodious sound of her voice lifts the spirit of those who's ears are blessed to hear. She is highly anointed by God and Himself Alone! (Listen)
With the release of her first CD "The Spiritual Laws of Love" Theresa has proven that her knowledge of the Fruits of the Spirits and the process of the application of them, are to be compared to the best on the subject. The wisdom on this CD has mended broken hearts and healed hurting relationships. Theresa King is well seasoned in the word of God and can take a text on spiritual wisdom any given day of the week.

About Ellica Church- DEVELOPMENT & MARKETING MANAGER
After 2 ? years as a DiabetesSisters member and volunteer, I am excited to join the staff full-time managing fundraising and marketing to support our mission. When I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes 7 ? years ago – January 28, 2006 to be exact – I was determined that diabetes would not define me. Yes, diabetes was a new part of my life – one that I had to adjust to and learn a lot about quickly – but the things I enjoy define my life, not my diagnosis.
My career – from journalism to public relations and nonprofit fundraising – has been driven by my desire to make a difference, to discover stories that get people to think differently about their community and how they can solve problems. After graduating with a B.S. in Journalism from Northwestern University, I spent almost four years as a daily newspaper reporter covering everything from healthcare and public safety to government affairs and neighborhood partnerships uniting diverse groups to build stronger communities.
For the past seven years, I have worked with nonprofits managing public relations for a college and running fundraising programs for human services and environmental organizations. I look forward to bringing the skills gained through my 11-year career and Certificate in Nonprofit Management from Duke University to DiabetesSisters. You can reach me at ellica@diabetessisters.org

Lillian A. Smith, Groundbreaking TV producer calls into the program to share her vast knowledge of working on the Phil Donahue Show for 17 years, how Talk TV has changed, what is missing and much more.
About Lillian
Groundbreaking producer Lillian A. Smith will say "It's been a rough road but a necessary road" in referencing a stellar career in broadcast journalism that began with the pioneering talk/news TV program, Donahue. For seventeen years, Ms. Lillian (as she's affectionately known) worked diligently behind the scenes to help make Phil Donahue's talk show the model for many others to follow, including The Oprah Winfrey Show. During her tenure with the Emmy award-winning show, Lillian Smith is to be credited for introducing the world to luminaries such as the young surgeon, Ben Carson, who gained renown for separating conjoined twins; Winnie Mandela in her first U.S. media interview and she introduced the world to the news buried in back pages and in some cases, not spoken of at all.
Journalist George Curry wrote of Lillian A. Smith's journey with Phil Donahue in a 1992 Chicago Tribune article, "But given the small staff of the ``Donahue`` show, promotions came slowly. It was six years before she was promoted to researcher, three more years before she became an associate producer and another year before she was promoted to be a producer."
In her own words: "Without the support of my mentors human rights activist Dick Gregory, attorney and activist the late Florence Kennedy, Phil Donahue and my loving sons Gregory J. Smith and Jerome P Smith, I would have been lost."
While producing the Donahue Show, Ms. Lillian teamed up with Phil Donahue as coordinating producer for PBS Television's presidential special "The Issue Is Race: A Crisis in Black & White," which was selected to air in classrooms across the United States to have our youth understand the issue of race during an election campaign for the nation's highest office.
After leaving the Donahue Show, Lillian launched two national television programs. In 1993, she became the executive producer for Fox Television in Los Angeles, California and launched a new talk show hosted by actress/comedian Mo Gaffney. In January of 1997, Ms. Smith joined Trinity Television Productions, New York City as senior producer/program development specialist to specifically launch a magazine format program titled, "The Real Bottom Line." The program featured former Today Show host JIM HARTZ as the show's host. "The Real Bottom Line" was taped live with Wall Street professionals as its lunchtime audience members at the famous Trinity Church on Wall Street. Guests included media mogul Michael Bloomberg, human rights leader Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, the late conservative television host and author William Buckley, the Rev. Bernice King (daughter of Martin Luther King, Jr.) and other prominent people and notables who shared their personal spiritual stories highlighting their paths to success.
Ms. Smith is a recipient of numerous awards as well as multiple national Emmy award nominations. She has won The Political Woman's Caucus award for the program she produced with African American female authors Alice Walker, Angela Davis, and Ntozake Shange. She was named "Journalist of the Year," in New York City by her peers for exercising her mission of "inclusion" producing programs featuring and highlighting the contributions people of color have contributed to the world along with the issues, concerns and joyful entertainment.
Lillian A. Smith is a broadcast journalism pioneer who has paved a path for producers of all hues to follow into the world of talk/news programming and documentary production. If you ask her how she characterizes the rough but necessary road, she'd most likely call her work activism. To her, TV production spurs people to learn and move to action for the sake of change.

Walter Horsting, Principal of Business Development International, calls in from Northern CA to share his devoted passion to bringing cleaner more efficient cost effective alternative uses of nuclear energy to CA and beyond.
How CA is getting wrong large projects that Californians will be paying for the next 50 years or so and how we should refocus on better environmental practices and build a new industrial base in CA and the US...this starts with Rare Earth Elements and China's monopoly that drives US factories to China to source these vital materials...
The CA Delta Water Tunnel project $25 Billion if not $50-$75 Billion that will make no additional water and deprive the Delta of needed fresh water...we can build Thorium Molten Salt Reactor Desalination Plants for Southern CA for the same price and have unlimited Walter...and build an export market for cheap clean power and water worldwide....
HyperLoop...how about ten minutes from LA to Disneyland or twenty to thirty minutes to San Diego or Las Vegas? High Speed Rail is 50 year old technology that will be obsolete before CA builds its SF to LA line...

That action has sent 6 men from a firm called IRP Solutions to prison for 7-11 years on some crazy vindictive charges of mail/wire fraud. The men...Clinton Stewart, Gary Walker, David Banks, Kendrick Barnes, Demetrius Harper and David Zirpolo have been sitting in prison for over a year. Cliff Stewart, Clint's brother joins our conversation and gives us an inside view of what happened when the FBI came and raided their small firm with 21 agents. He and Samuel both worked at IRP Solutions at the time.

About A Just Cause
AJCm is an organization that was established in 2005, by a group of concerned citizens, who witnessed what should have been a federal civil case, turn in to a federal criminal case that was grossly over-criminalized. After observing, how a civil case can be misconstrued, as criminal and peoples' lives were instantly turned upside down, A Just Cause was formed to help fight against abuse and misuse of power occurring today, within our United States' judicial system.
The mission of AJC is to join in the fight against over-criminalization of trivial/obscure acts and provide competent legal representation in criminal cases, where misconduct is suspected on the part of judges, prosecutors and/or court appointed defense counsel. A Just Cause will offer assistance through a criminal defense attorney, referral service or help subsidize legal and court fees. A Just Cause will also work diligently to assist other organizations, who are also working to obtain criminal judicial reform.
It is our vision to change the trend in the United States judicial system of over-criminalizing conduct by citizens, who committed certain acts with no criminal intent. AJC seeks true balance and accountability in the judicial process, ensuring that innocent men and women are not convicted and sentenced to prison wrongfully for trivial/obscure acts that are otherwise not seen as crimes.
About The IRP6
The IRP6 (5black/1white): Gary Walker, David Banks, Clinton Stewart, Kendrick Barnes, Demetrius Harper and David Zirpolo case in a nutshell is a corporate debt collection case that got criminalized by an over-zealous FBI agent John Smith and Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew Kirsch in Denver, CO. The details around the case from its inception, all the way through to prosecution, conviction and sentencing is what sheds light to the over-criminalization and corrupt judicial process that can occur in our judicial system. This is a classic case of the government going after a win at any cost!
You can help by sharing this story with others because YOU COULD BE NEXT!!

I think it's easier to paint a picture of the career I almost have, than to belittle this page with imagery and cliche's about how hard I work. But I I can't draw for &*^% so...
I'm in my own world 90 percent of the day. The other 10 percent I'm dancing in my underwear to Katy Perry with my blinds wide open. I kissed a girl and I liked it was ehh' about it.
I say inappropriate things on stage for money, and write satirical stories about life. Oddly enough, I'm happy. I smile so much it hurts.
On weekdays I'm somewhere touring this ridiculous nation, Idaho, Washington, Texas, Florida, you name the place, and I guarantee you I've kissed a baby like a Presidential Candidate there. I live for the days on the road. There is no better feeling than being permanently banned from a historical monument.
I guess I'm rolling out my own red carpet.
Well, more like an acid wash carpet with a few beer stains and a handful of glitter.
This is what freedom feels like.
Come take a ride in my imaginary gold Camaro. We can air-hump for hours. I'm saving up for a pussy wagon...
xxoo,

Chef Hardette Harris, calls in from Louisiana to share her passion for cooking for others as a personal chef.
About Chef Harris
Fifteen years and hundreds of culinary experiences later, Chef Hardette Harris is taking every second of her professional knowledge as a private personal chef to educate and assist people in making the most of their lives with food. The native of Minden, Louisiana has spent the better part of her career in Texas working with families on any number of projects from improving their nutritional intake to organizing their kitchens to preparing foods used to be better home cooks.
She says, "Home cooking is the basis for all culinary genres including gourmet." Chef Harris premises that foods served in expensive restaurants are all rooted in someone's home experimentation, so she works to teach private clients how to make the most of their food budgets and above all, their time constraints.
Hardette Harris grew up in a busy home with two working parents who maintained some of the culinary disciplines from their own upbringings. Hardette and her siblings had regular food chores along with their household duties. The Harris children were the family's sous chefs. Hardette recalls fondly sitting on the porch shelling purple hull peas as a part of her obligations. Author and former White House aide Adrian Miller not only interviewed her for his recent book Soul Food: The Surprising Story of an American Cuisine, One Plate at a Time but also included her grandmother's purple hull pea recipes.
After graduating from the Art Institute of Houston in 2001, Chef Harris immediately realized that her heart was not into the fast-paced world of restaurant kitchens but rather in the private kitchens of families with myriad needs for a personal chef. She would soon discover that for as many families with a need for a personal chef, there were other needs for her services and she launched her company Private Chef Services.
Private Chef Services provides any number of services to private individuals at home, in small business and even for busy corporate VIPs and executives. Over the years, Chef Harris' company has gained popularity in Texas and is now expanding its local services to Louisiana, her home state. She sees the forward movement as an outlet for her passions for families looking for a chef as well as those who aspire to be a private or personal chef. With the launch of Your Chef Concierge™ she is expanding her reach even farther with a blog, consultancy services and expert advice in the media.
"My love for home cooking and home cooks is my total inspiration," said Chef Harris. She adds, "Living well means eating well and the approach I take to providing culinary concierge services makes it easier for anyone to have a great life filled with great food."

Morrow Wilson, Author calls in from NYC to chat about his latest book, of "David Sunshine". He tells the story of an innocent young man whose first job out of college is as the first associate producer of a famous pioneering TV talk show. Novelist Morrow Wilson's first job after graduating from Columbia was as the first associate producer of David Susskind's pioneering TV talk show. "It seems hard to believe in this day and age when Dr. Phil regularly brags about his show's staff of 300, but we put together a talk show that often made the front page of the New York Times above the fold the Monday after our Sunday night broadcasts, that featured guests such as Harry Truman, James Thurber, Marlon Brando - people who almost never appeared on television - and we did it with Susskind, his producer, a secretary, and me." "It was the goofiest first job anyone ever had," says Morrow Wilson, "and the quickest post-graduate course in the nutty reality of the television industry. That world was so crazy that just telling what happened makes you laugh, probably because it is the only way to cope."
About Morrow Wilson
went on to become an independent producer, an advertising executive and finally the production chief of the CBS Cable, a television network of real excellence. But in time he gave up his life behind the scenes to become an award-winning actor who has been in over a hundred New York stage productions, prime-time and daytime TV, feature and independent films, and many commercials. He is the widower of the oft-wedded actress Rue McClanahan, a marriage that she says in her autobiography "lasted longer than all her other five put together."

Luh Dizzy, the 16 year old Hip Hop artist joins Mother Love in studio to chat about his love and commitment to the music world, why he is different than your run of the mill rappers today, his plan to be a positive influence with his peers and how he plans to "DO IT BIG in Hollywood!"

His Father, Mark Jackson joins them as well to share why it is important for him to be involved in his son's career.
About Luh Dizzy
16 Yr Old Deonte' Marquis Jackson aka "Luh Dizzy" Releases 1st Single "I Do It Big"
Big Dreams with Big Video Become Reality!
At 3 years old, Deonte' Marquis Jackson already knew he would grow up to be a rapper and spoke those words to his parents. Throughout his tender years, he wrote plays, stories and poetry that was impressive to his teachers to the point they encouraged him to keep all his writings in a journal. Today, Deonte' Marquis Jackson's dream is a reality!
Transformed from a clean cut scholarly teen to a positive yet not "thugged out" Hip Hop artist appears "Luh Dizzy" in the recent release of his new video "I Do It Big". Lyrics describe how he "does it big" as a young underage teen for himself and "for his team" as he parties surrounded by his friends. "I Do It Big" song is produced by T Cornner Music Group and the video is directed by Alexandher Films which can be seen on Youtube and is available in 60+ download stores including iTunes, Amazon MP3, Google Play, Facebook, Spotify, CDBaby.com and more! "Luh Dizzy", the name given because his cousins said he reminded him of Lil Wayne and began calling him Lil Deezy, as Lil Wayne's nickname is Weezy. Deonte' didn't like it and changed it Luh Dizzy to create his own originality.
But don't think this has gone to "Luh Dizzy's" head. This is just the beginning!
"Luh Dizzy", currently an eleventh grader enrolled in all advanced placement classes is also pursuing acting, a reality television show, releasing a clothing line and further out will produce various film projects. "Luh Dizzy" is re-inventing how teen self-proclaimed talents pursue purpose driven dreams by maintaining scholarly excellence, keeping down home humbleness, staying true to family values and crystallizing the focus on each piece of his career puzzle until the picture is clear and obtained.

V. Sheree Williams, Writer, Publisher of Cuisine Noir Magazine calls in from Oakland, CA with great enthusiasm about her passion for food, wine and travel.
About Sheree
Like a lot of African-Americans, Sheree grew up loving the smells and tastes of her mother's cooking that many would be classified as soul food. The food cooked and enjoyed by her family provided simple thrills and delicious memories. The thought of tasting the unfamiliar was not appealing and the comfort zone created since being a child seemed to be as good as it gets. That all changed over the years starting with college and later into her adult life when she began to discover and explore a whole new world and relationship with food.
Today she is writing about her delicious relationship as the publisher of the first online and print food, wine and travel magazine for African-American foodies called Cuisine Noir. Re-launched online in September 2009 and in print in September 2011 under her company V. Sheree Publishing, Cuisine Noir is a lifestyle publication centered on creating the ultimate culinary experiences for foodies around the globe. With an international palate, Cuisine Noir is focused on taking African-Americans out of their food comfort zones and into trying something a little different one month at a time. In 2010, she launched the blog, The Culinary Scoop, which provides informative and fun commentary as well as news about culinary scenes all over the world daily.
Designing a publication tailored to African-Americans was an easy fit for Sheree who is also a multicultural marketing consultant. She quickly capitalized on the opportunity to work with the magazine's founder, Chef Richard Pannell, in 2007 when Cuisine Noir originally launched and knew that such a niche publication was not only needed but will be widely received by all. It would also provide a clear and distinct media outlet for advertisers executing multicultural campaigns geared toward African-Americans. Sheree's leadership has successfully started a new cultural culinary movement by putting African-American chefs, culinary professionals and vintners in the forefront to showcase their talents and contributions to foodies, media and key industry companies. She has interviewed some of the most talented chefs across the country as well as celebrities such as Chef Rock Harper, Dr. Maya Angelou, Dhani Jones, John Amos, George Duke, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Chef Roger Mooking, Niecy Nash, Russell Simmons, Dr. Jessica B. Harris, Jeanette Jenkins and Charlie Wilson.
In addition to writing about the chefs behind the food, she was produced and organized cooking demonstrations with a variety of celebrity chefs such as Chef Jeff Henderson (The Food Network), Chef Aaron McCargo, Jr. (The Food Network), Chef Tre Wilcox (Bravo's Top Chef), Chef Darrell "DAS" Smith (The Food Network), Chef G. Garvin (TV One), Chef Kevin Sbraga (Bravo's Top Chef), Chef Bryant Terry (Author – Vegan Soul Kitchen), Chef Rock Harper (Winner of Hell's Kitchen Season 3) and Chef Nikki Shaw (The Food Network). Event culinary programming clients include United Negro College Fund, The Network for a Healthier California, the Travel and Adventure Show produced by Unicomm and the Bay Area Black Expo, LLC.
Born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, Sheree holds a Bachelor of Science in Advertising from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a Master of Science in Integrated Marketing Communications from Golden Gate University in San Francisco. She currently lives in Oakland, Calif., and enjoys trying new restaurants, cooking, gardening, food and travel photography

As a Member of the Board of Trustees, recently Reddock was a leader in helping pass Measure J, a 3.5 billion bond measure that will allow the Los Angeles Community College District to continue to rebuild and renovate its nine colleges to 21st Century Green and Sustainable standards.[1]Reddock also has challenged proposed cuts to community college funding and proposed increases in student fees in the California state budget.
Reddock holds several board chairmanships, including chair for the Los Angeles African American Women's Public Policy Institute (LAAAWPPI), an organization which trains women to become more engaged in public policy and public affairs, and Ability First, an organization which provides services to individuals with disabilities. Ms. Reddock also serves as a Commissioner on the Los Angeles City Transportation Commission and the Los Angeles County Local Government Services Reform Commission where she is chair of the Taxicab Taskforce.

Shanequa Gay, Fine Artist calls in from Atlanta to share her passion for painting, celebrating strong Black Southern women and proud Black men.
About Shanequa
Artist Shanequa Gay is a rising star. She has steadily gained a reputation over the years as one who has captured the grace and elegance and resilience of southern black women on canvas. Most recently, the Atlanta resident, was commissioned to provide a rendering of the White House that was on 1,800 hostess gifts at the First Lady's Luncheon. This summer her traveling exhibit The Fair Game Project was met with critical acclaim at its debut at the Bessie Smith Cultural Center in Chattanooga Tennessee. Shanequa is the mother of a son, a daughter to mother who is a pastor and women's ministry leader and her art can be found in the private collections of Samuel L. Jackson and Preston Bailey.
Shanequa Gay's The Fair Game Project brings dimension and context to the tattered media image of black men. Just days after the Zimmerman verdict, her southern charms waded through a variety of experiences sitting in the audience of her talk at Chattanooga's Bessie Smith Cultural Center. On this night, she shared how she has seen her art evolve from depictions of black church women to the celebration of her southern heritage to paintings that address the perils of being black and male in America. The predominately white audience is rapt and interested. Sitting quietly in a back row is Gay's inspiration for her current exhibit The Fair Game Project, her 13-year old son.
Shanequa Gay says that The Fair Game Project debuts at a pivotal time in our country's history as a bevy of court cases and news headlines echo a problem she's been observing for a long time. In the not-so distant past, Gay lost her brother to violence, which opened her eyes to the bigger issue of how she was going to safely raise her young son.
"Black men have been fair game for a very long time. This is not new. The Fair Game Project, as I see it, is a part of an ongoing conversation we've been having forever. "The artist whose work was recently featured on the hostess gift for guests to the First Lady's luncheon at the White House began a touring exhibit on June 7beginning with a run at the Bessie Smith Cultural Center that lasts until August 30. Shanequa Gay has exhibited her work at some prestigious venues including the following: Chattanooga African American Museum, the Hunter Museum of American Art, the Auburn Avenue Research Library on African American Culture and History, Emory University, Mason Murer Gallery, and the National Black Arts Festival.
She is a graduate of the Art Institute of Atlanta and is currently attending the Savannah College of Art and Design where she has received awards and scholarships and is honored to have her work as part of the permanent collection for SCAD Hong Kong. She was honored to have been selected by Low Country Luxe as the illustrator of the White House for the 2013 First Lady's Luncheon hostess gift.
She has drawn praise and critical acclaim for her depictions of southern life and black women, and is a highly sought-after speaker and lecturer. Her current traveling exhibition, The FAIR GAME Project, speaks to her advocacy on behalf of the African American male, which includes her hopes, fears, and concerns for her own son. Gay currently lives and works in Atlanta, Georgia.

"Brotha Tech" (Terrence Gaines) calls in from Atlanta, GA to share all things tech with us from safety for children and older adults online to what gadgets to buy refurbished.
About BrothaTech
My passion for gadgets and technology has evolved from a "thing" I do every once in a while to help family and friends, to a blog in order to share my love of all things tech with other techies (and to stop getting on my wife's nerves), to a brand that helps people and companies "Adopt the Digital Lifestyle". Mobile devices and consumer electronics are my heart, but I also dabble in all things technology. I've been a tech-blogger/freelance writer covering a wide-range of geeky subjects since 2008. I'm also a technology consultant (I prefer the term Tech Concierge) for individuals, small businesses, and events.
I've also been tapped to speak on technology subjects at local event and nation-wide conferences. I even fix smartphones, tablets, and laptops.
...In other words, I'm a certified Digital Lifestyle Expert, AKA:
Technology Evangelist
Chief Gadget Officer
"Jack of ALL Tech"
Whether I'm talking about the latest technology news, reviewing the hottest gadgets, or helping visitors get the most out of their gadgets, you can find it ALL here...Because honestly, I don't have the time to manage multiple sites. Check out my bio below to find out why.
Terrance Gaines, AKA BrothaTech, has been interested in technology ever since he can remember. It started when Terrance and his brother shoveled snow in the winter to make enough money to buy video games for their Nintendo Entertainment System. His tech roots also include working at an electronics store selling Audio/Video gear to make extra money during college.
In 2008, he decided to share his techie background and unique writing skills, and created BrothaTech.com, a personal blog where he discussed technology trends and topics and reviewed gadgets he was interested in. His blog has been recognized by the Black Weblog Awards and the Small Biz Influencer Awards in 2011 and 2012. He has also been a guest on many podcasts and radio shows as the resident "techspert" giving listeners the lowdown on current and future technology trends. Via BrothaTech, Terrance has worked some of his favorite brands including Verizon Wireless, Sonos, Samsung, Kensington, Evernote, and more. Shortly after, he started his freelance career and has penned technology articles of various subjects for Black Web 2.0, Small Biz Go Mobile, The Atlanta Post (now Madame Noire), AppScout (A PC Magazine blog), Black Enterprise, and Uptown Magazine, in addition to guest posting for many other sites. Terrance has expanded his services from a tech blogger/pundit, to a recognized speaker where he has presented at various local events and national conferences including Chocolate Chat Atlanta Meetup, Show Me the Blog Social Media Conference, Hispanicize, and Blogging While Brown Conference to name a few. Terrance hasn't stopped at merely attending and speaking at conference and events. The consulting arm of his brand includes events where he is the Technology advisor for the the nationally-recognized (and his favorite) Blogalicious Conference. Future projects include his own weekly podcast and hosting technology events in the Metro Atlanta area.
Terrance has stayed true to his gadget roots, and moonlights as an gadget repair specialist. All this while holding down the fort as a devoted husband and father of two of the cutest girls you will ever see in Atlanta, GA.
BrothaTech.com remains the virtual home for Terrance where he still loves to talk about about his favorite gadgets, apps, and other tech topics, while helping visitors "Adopt the Digital Lifestyle".

Sheila Raye Charles, Singer, Author of "Behind The Shades" and daughter of The Late Ray Charles joins Mother Love in studio to share her redemption from a 20 year battle with drugs going to prison, losing her 5 children, lack of a relationship with her famous father and how The LORD brought her through and changed her life. Sheila's sister, Raenee Charles was in studio to lend support.
About Sheila
Sheila Raye Charles creates her own distinct sound while delivering her intensely inspiring message of hope and love. As a talented singer/songwriter, she has found her voice in acoustic jazz and R & B with lyrics that deliver the personal journey of her own life and her relationship with her legendary father, Ray Charles. At age 19, with great courage, she defied her father’s wishes and pursued music. Demonstrating her commitment and her talent, her father actually brought her and her band into his studio and personally produced several songs. Through a series of life changing events, her music career waned as she gathered a lifetime of experiences which, today, give great meaning and countenance to her music.
Today, Charles is called upon to provide skin tingling renditions of her father’s best known songs from America the Beautiful to Hit The Road Jack to Georgia from jazz festivals to embassy parties to clubs and places of worship. As an entertaining and engaging vocalist, Charles is able to inspire her audiences with stories of her life challenges of drug addiction and recovery, of her spiritual journey and personal growth while at the same time delivering meaty, life giving music. With the publication of her life story, Behind the Shades, Charles provides insight into her life and her path to God.
Ms Charles recently joined the roster of Conquer Entertainment where both her gospel and secular music is featured and available for download. She is currently working on a new gospel album and will be releasing singles from this effort in the new year including a duet with Vaughn Anthony, brother of family friend and internationally known John Legend.

Sandy Stotzer, Comic and Co host of "Guy Talk Radio" on Mondays @ 4PM (PST) & "A Comic's Life" on Fridays @ 4 PM (PST) both on LATALKRADIO.COM joins Mother Love for the entire afternoon giving his comedic view on variety of subjects.
Born in Chicago in 1952 to an unwed mother, Sandy Stotzer was immediately put up for adoption. Five months later, he was adopted by a wonderful couple (Sam and Midge Stotzer) and began to show signs of being funny even as a child. Although raised as a classical musician playing the trumpet from the age of five, Sandy was always a "closet comic."
Sandy's family eventually moved from Chicago to Northern California where he began to showcase his comedic talents while attending Saratoga High School helping to create Gross Gems Productions, an amateur film company specializing in comedy film shorts. The films were an instant hit, taking five awards out of their six films entered at the annual Eastman Kodak International Film Festival.
Gross Gems film showings became so popular, they later added "live sketch comedy" between films, creating a unique and well rounded ninety minute show, selling out every performance. Forty years later their films still run today on television.
Although accepted at The Julliard School of Music in New York City, Sandy chose California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles for his college experience. It was here that Sandy fell in love with radio, television and the entertainment world in general.
After college, Sandy moved back to Northern California where he was given his own weekly television talk show during the early days of cable. Years later he moved back to Los Angeles where he performed regularly at "The Comedy Store" and "The Improv" in a comedy improvisational group and eventually worked his way into stand-up comedy.
The rest is history. For more years then he'd like to admit, Sandy has shared his hilarious style of insanity with millions of people coast to coast performing in clubs, colleges, numerous television commercials, national stand-up spots on networks such as BET (Black Entertainment Television) and finally to his ABC Pilot. Today Sandy has been married to his beautiful, very successful and tolerant wife Beatrice, for the past thirty eight years. Without her love and support Sandy is convinced his life wouldn't have a fraction of the richness it has today. They have two grown sons, Nick (his oldest) who is a Pastor along with his wife Kimberly at a church in Southern California and Tony (Sandy's youngest son) is a budding television producer in the Los Angeles area. Sandy is more than proud of them all.

Jameel Rasheed, Internationally Acclaimed Fine Artist joins Mother Love in studio to share his passion for art and preserving African and African American Culture through his signature Charcoal pieces. His piece saluting civil rights giant, Rosa Parks is among his more celebrated works as well as The Bushman and his other beautiful art work.
Acclaimed Fine Artist, based in Los Angeles, California. Through the use of charcoal, his primary medium, Rasheed makes his powerful message rise from the canvas. His work focuses on African-Americans of the past and present, legendary and contemporary, while also paying homage to African warriors and nobility that project positive images. Rasheed's passionate creativity extends further to include rich depictions of African wildlife on canvas. He is currently working on a calendar and a book about the study of African wildlife through the use of charcoal. Jameel Rasheed when asked how has his artistic talents impacted his life most; Rasheed tells a story that has brought him full circle, He was 19-years-old, living in Boston with his parents. He attended Dorchester High School in the late 1960's and had entered his first art contest, after creating an illustration of a coat, which was entitled "Relaxation". After submitting "Relaxation" to the Boston Globe's annual school district art contest, Rasheed was notified that he had won an award that included a four-year scholarship to a well-renowned art institution in Little Rock, Arkansas. When the award committee arrived from Little Rock to present Rasheed with his award, they had no idea that their soon-to-be Protege, at that time known as Howard Badgett, was black. Upon their discovery, the committee revoked the scholarship, explaining that it would be too controversial for a Black Student to attend an all-white school in Little Rock. That experience often makes Rasheed wonder if it was coincidence or divine intervention, that he would later be awarded for his historical Serigraph of Rosa Parks entitled "Quiet Courage". Currently there is a coalition to promote Jameel Rasheed's Serigraph of Rosa Parks "Quiet Courage" into a U.S. Postal Stamp. But for now, Jameel Rasheed is simply looking forward to upcoming art tours featuring his work. As for the future, whatever it holds, the artist formerly known as Little Badgett is READY!!!! For over 20 years Rasheed was a professional model, the industry was interesting to him and he opted to move to Los Angeles, and pursued a bachelor's of fine arts degree in fashion illustration. While in an illustration class Rasheed drew "The Bushman". The instructor took one look at his work and "told me, if I was to draw with so much attention to detail, emotion and character, that I might want to take the art industry more seriously." And the rest is history...

Katherine Hanson, Founder and CEO of shetrusts.com joins Mother Love in studio for a fresh look at fashion reviews everyday young women can trust when she spends her hard earned money. About Katherine It all started with a pair of Reva flats by Tory Burch. As a young woman looking to establish myself professionally, I was always looking for the perfect "go-to" classic black flat to wear to work, and it meant something to me to buy those shoes for myself. I saw it as an investment in my future, a visual ticket to success. Two months later, the shoes were tattered, torn, ripped, and the sole had completely worn away. I was astonished to realize that these shoes, which I had invested so much of my (limited) disposable income on, could not hold up to the pace of my life (and let's face it, it wasn't like I was climbing Mount Everest). If I had known the life-span of these shoes, I don't believe I would have purchased them in the first place.
This unfortunate experience prompted me to think, "Wouldn't it be great if there was a website where I could visit to read about the quality and durability of these products as proven in the lives of other women like me so I don't have to worry about this with my next purchase?" So to fill a need in my own life, the idea for SheTrusts.com was born! After discussing this idea with other women (friends and strangers!) I realized that I wasn't the only one who realized the need for such a website, and I saw the opportunity to create and provide a platform for women to review and share with one another what they depend on and what has let them down. SheTrusts.com provides a place for us to learn from one another, and to insert the conversation about quality and durability back into the fashion dialogue.

About Diana
Ms. Diana Hardy is a recently retired veteran of the U.S Army having given 22 years of honorable service to this nation both in and outside of the United States. She held positions in logistics early on in her career then switched over to human resources because she knew to be successful in the world was about developing skills working with people. As a person who always believed in the Army motto of “mission first, people always”, she spent her life helping people in whatever capacity she could and always cared for her personnel and their families. In her last assignment with the Army, she saw the culture change and felt the pressure of doing “EVEN more with EVEN less”. She was working part time in her home based business under the name of L.A.I. Enterprises, LLC. She partnered with Organo Gold, the fastest growing company in the network marketing industry which has already helped over 40 families become millionaires within its first four years in North America. She was having more fun and meeting lots of different people. Ms Hardy realized how much people were looking for opportunities that would be the answer to their prayers and knew that it was time to begin a new chapter in her life. She decided to give her job back to Uncle Sam to pursue her business full time. Upon her retirement, she threw herself a “Freedom” party celebrating her honorable military service and the launch her business. It was then that she became a “full time” entrepreneur and launched a multimillion dollar health and wellness business. L.A.I. is an acronym for Leaving An Inheritance. Ms Hardy has a mission to help others leave generation wealth and this business is her launching pad. She has always been attracted to education and sharing with people how to improve their lives in one way or another. As a military officer, she knows leadership and was attracted to the phenomenal leadership of Organo Gold. She knows she is very fortunate to have been introduced to a quality company and is grateful for being wise enough to make the decision to partner with them. She has been personally mentored by documented multi-million dollar earners, who willingly share their wisdom with her. Ms. Hardy has always been passionate about being able to help others particularly in making decisions based on financial abundance verses financial lack. She kept her options opened to an income opportunity and recognized the multi-billion dollar coffee industry, (though she was not a coffee drinker), and found out that she was participating in a recession proof industry because everyone drank coffee or tea at least occasionally and or knew someone else who did. She has partnership opportunities available, and is seeking qualified candidates for those who still have goals and dreams and want to turn them into reality. She has seen the successes in this industry and has become committed to helping others achieve financial freedom. Her team’s goal is to help 300 families create $300K of “residual” income. If you want to know more about, and or apply for one of the sought after positions to work with Ms Hardy contact her by phone at 910-224-8307 or by email at laienterprises.llc@gmail.com for an interview.

NautilusMC, a Hip Hop Artist/Composer joins Mother Love in studio to share his message of inspiration, passion and love of the genre. He hails from Seattle, WA where he fared very well with his music. When he had gone as far as he could he was LA bound.
NautilusMC, Born as Maynard Okereke in Austin, TX , has lived a life embedded in music, culture, and personal struggle. The combination of his West African roots and adolescent upbringing in the Northwest state of Washington, have given him many diverse influences that are clearly reflected in his music.
His recent projects after a brief layaway from the music scene, plus his distinct sound and message behind his emotionally fired anthems, have generated a lot of buzz for the NW artist. His local mixtape projects have received tremendous attention and downloads from both his strong local fan base as well as nationally. The release of his independent album DayDreamin' set a new standard for NW hip hop and propelled him to the forefront of talented West Coast artists.
Nautilus’ current endeavors into the acting scene in Hollywood along with the music videos for his singles "So Intnl" & "Lettin' Go", have further built him a strong online presence. He looks to separate himself even further with the success of his new project "Visions of a Dreamer", which features an array of emotionally charged, mood inspiring tracks and notable production credits.
With so many other cities hitting the forefront and establishing their musical presence, Nautilus is focused and ready to put not only the city of Seattle, but the entire West Coast on the map. With the backing of many other solid up and coming artists and producers in the NW melting pot of talent, Nautilus is thirsty to establish his name in the elite group of MC’s worldwide.

Josefina Lopez, Playwrite and founder of Casa 0101 Theater joins Mother Love in studio to share her passion for telling the Latin history that most don't know. Joining her is Singer/Actress Rocio Mendoza who plays Aurelia in the play, along with Guitar Players Jesus Martinez and Marco Aguirre who play beautifully as Rocio sings LIVE!
CASA 0101 Theater proudly presents the return of Trio Los Machos, written by Josefina Lopez and featuring the music of Trio Los Panchos. The play explores the themes of music, aging and friendship set against the backdrop of the Bracero guest worker program (1942-1964) between the US and Mexico. The story follows three young migrant workers who sing in the barracks to entertain their fellow field hands. Before long, their youthful drive and ambition enables them to make their living as musicians and leave the dreaded fields. However, as they grow older and their abilities and health begin to deteriorate, they become increasingly dependent on one another. Their proud machismo, which in the past helped them survive hardship becomes a barrier for them, forcing them to confront their vulnerabilities. Based on the music of “Trio Los Panchos”, the play celebrates the magic of music while exploring a lesser known chapter of US History which has had a profound impact on both sides of the border. The musical group “Trio Los Panchos” was formed in 1944, and their romantic and nostalgic boleros embodies like no other this period in history as well as the hopes, passions, pain and beauty of the Mexican experience.

Jim Piddock, Actor, Writer, Producer and Co Creator of "Family Tree" on HBO and The BBC 2 joins Mother Love in studio to chat about this very funny show about a guy trying to find his way through searching his Family Tree.
Jim began his career on the stage in England, before emigrating to the U.S. in his early twenties. He made his theatrical debut in the U.S. in "The Boy's Own Story", a one-man show about a soccer goalkeeper, at the Julian Theatre in San Francisco. The show was an instant success with critics and audiences, winning Piddock the Bay Area Critics' Best Actor Award. The show was then produced Off-Broadway and he quickly gained the attention of the New York theatre scene. That same year (1982), he was cast in Noel Coward's "Present Laughter" by George C. Scott, who directed/starred in the revival, which also featured Nathan Lane, Christine Lahti, Dana Ivey, and Kate Burton. The show was a big hit on Broadway and Piddock soon found himself appearing in a string of Broadway and Off-Broadway shows, including the original US production of "Noises Off", "The Knack" at the Roundabout Theatre, and "Make and Break" with Peter Falk at the Kennedy Center. After replacing Frank Langella in "Design For Living" at the Circle-In-The-Square theatre, he moved to Los Angeles and has since appeared in a long succession of tv shows, such as "The Tracey Ullman Show", "Coach", "Max Headroom", "The Twilight Zone", "Murder She Wrote", "Mad About You", "Angel", "ER", "Friends", "Crossing Jordan", "The Drew Carey Show", "Lost", "Monk", "Without A Trace", "Dollhouse", "Chuck", and "Party Down" . He has also starred in several notable tv movies and mini-series, like "From The Earth To The Moon", "A Mom For Christmas", "She Creature" on HBO, and "The Women Of Windsor". He appeared in his first movie in the top-grossing film of 1989, "Lethal Weapon 2", in which one of his lines, "But...you're black" in answer to Danny Glover's request to emigrate to South Africa, became a catchphrase for the film. Other feature film roles soon followed, including notable appearances in "Independence Day", "Traces Of Red", "Multiplicity", "Burn Hollywood Burn", "Austin Powers 3", "A Different Loyalty", "Love For Rent", "See This Movie", "Love For Rent", "The Prestige", "Epic Movie", "Who's Your Caddy?", "The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising", "Meet The Spartans", and "The Golden Door". But it is probably his memorable performances in the improvised Christopher Guest comedies "Best In Show" (as the Dog Show commentator with Fred Willard), "A Mighty Wind", and "For Your Consideration" that he has gained the most attention as an impeccable, chameleon character actor, who is barely recognizable from role to role. In Summer 2009, he returned to London to shoot the new Woody Allen film "You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger", and the Judd Apatow-produced "Get Him To The Greek", with Russell Brand and Jonah Hill. As a voice actor, he is most notable for providing the voice of Major Zero in the English version of the video game Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, Bolero the Bull in the movie "Garfield 2", and the fictional artistic director of Forever Young Films, Kenneth Loring, doing the hilarious commentary in the directors' cut of the Coen Brothers' "Blood Simple".
In 1990, he also began another career as a screenplay writer, selling his first spec script, co-written with Margaret Oberman, for a mid six-figure sum. Since then, he has pursued multiple careers as an actor, writer, and producer, having had a diverse collection of films made, crossing all genres, such as "Traces Of Red" (Samuel Goldwyn Company), "One Good Turn", "A Different Loyalty" (starring Rupert Everett and Sharon Stone), New Line's "The Man" (starring Samuel Jackson and Eugene Levy), and "The Tooth Fairy" (which he also executive produced) for Fox, starring Dwayne Johnson, Ashley Judd, Billy Crystal, Steven Merchant, and Julie Andrews, which will have a wide theatrical release on January 22, 2010. He also created, wrote and produced the BBC series "Too Much Sun", starring Mark Addy, Alex Jennings, and Lee Majors.

Laci Kay, a young singer/actress joins Mother Love in studio with her Mother Cindy to share her love of the stage. Laci was born in Tyler, TX where her two sisters, (Meagan and Heather) and one brother (Jake) were also born. She is the baby of the family. She lived in Whitehouse, TX with them while she attended Stepping Stone preschool in Tyler, TX for 2 years and then she attended Kindergarten and 1st grade at Cain Elementary school in Whitehouse, TX. While in Texas, she loved cheer-leading and did this on a competitive team called the "Tyler Twisters". Her coach was Miss Kim and Mr. Derrick, who she just loved. She also sang and performed at her church a lot, with Pastor Ray at Tyler Metro Church.
One day, an opportunity came up for her dad to take a job transfer to Goleta, CA with his company, "Cox Communications". Since her sisters and brother were almost out of high school, they chose to stay back in Texas; the sisters with their dad and her brother with his mom, you see we are a blended family and Laci Kay was the glue to keep us all attached, since she was part of everyone. So her mom and dad and her moved to Ojai, CA and Laci Kay attended Mira Monte Elementary for the end of the 1st grade and all of the 2nd grade. The acting bug hit as she performed in her first play in the 1st grade called "Rumpus in the Rainforest". She also attended Santa Clarita School of Performing Arts and met her favorite agent, Jeremy Apody from Abrams Artists, who she still has to this day, commercially. Her first job with him was playing young Christina Aguilera in her video, "Hurt". After this happened, she got very busy doing what she loves to do; perform! So, her parents decided to move to Ventura, CA where we still live to this day, so that dad's commute to work would not be any longer and mom's commute taking Laci into LA would be shorter. It seemed like a good choice as mom works for Macy Homes there, anyway.
So, Laci attended Portola Elementary School in Ventura, CA for the 3rd thru 5th grade and attended Anacapa Middle School for the 6th grade. She also is attending there, now, for the 7th grade. She has performed in the local "Elite", "Rubicon" and "Thousand Oaks Performing Arts" Theaters. She has been in the G.A.T.E. (Gifted and Talented Education) program since 3rd grade. She was chosen to speak at her 5th grade graduation and wrote an inspiring speech to her class. She also attended Bible Fellowship Church in Ventura and participated in the 2 plays for Kids Choir they have every year. She loves helping out with the toddlers once a month and also the times they went to visit people at the Rescue Mission and also the Nursing Home to sing for them. Currently, she attends City Church in Ventura.
When Laci is not shooting commercials, movies or videos or acting or singing, she still loves riding her bike, her electric scooter and razor scooter, flipping on her trampoline and, most recently, she is enjoying perfecting her skills on her new skate board! She also loves swimming and going to the beach and, of course, like all kids her age; texting and talking to her friends, watching Disney and Nickelodeon on TV and hanging out with all the family.
Laci Kay was nominated in 2013 for a Young Artists Award for Best Perfomance in a Short Film Young Actress 11 and 12 for her starring role in "Olivia". Laci Kay is nominated for a 2013 EOTM Award for her Outstanding Actress in a film short for her starring role of Olivia in "Olivia". Laci Kay was nominated and became the Winner of the "Young Talent Award" at the Global Officials of Dignity Awards (G.O.D. Awards)2013 for her portrayal of Olivia in "Olivia" along with her singing and performing in the studio and LIVE performances. Daughter of Cindy Schoonover.

Sam Dawson did not like turning sixty. Body parts started heading south and in the Down Dog yoga pose she could see the wrinkles around her ankles like the age rings on a tree. Curious to learn if others her age felt the same, she interviewed seventy women. Broad Appeal is the culmination of her candid conversations with mature women, revealing that "over the hill" is actually a new and exciting frontier.

Chuck Wood, creator of "Croc Roc" The musical crocodile and his band young humans joins Mother Love in studio to taut his vision for bring arts and science to children of all ages.
Croc Roc is based on animated characters, with Croc being a legend making a comeback with the help of his friends in "Tunesville" branding/licensing/new media, Croc Roc Academy of Arts and Sciences is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit foundation to give children of all ages the opportunity to fulfill their goals and dreams in music and arts. I have info on both organizations that I believe you will enjoy reading through. I licensed the the rights to the foundation (name, logo and characters) to give us cross promotion which also allows us to develop both entities at once, since Suzie is re-submitting all the grant proposals (after this financial crisis) I have been actively meeting with various groups for investing/donations. I am developing all these areas on my own with little funds and the people that you see working with us are willing to join forces (pro bono), because they see the potential of where and what the company and foundation can accomplish. I have been very careful, of who I do business with, there is major studio interest in working with us but, as I have said they want it all without much in return. We need to form a partnership with someone with power that will work with us to take the characters to the next level so, then we can negotiate with those in the industry and other branding/marketing potential. I have met with the animators that worked (4) Walt and they stated, "these are the best characters we have seen in thirty years and do not sell out, you will find the right group that will believe in what you are working hard to accomplish". I look forward to hearing from you, it is a big undertaking in the beginning but, the payoff could be enormous for all of us as we develop the characters in the many vast venues. It would be great to work with you and those who see the dream, to develop and grow with us in bringing the Croc Roc characters to life. Best, Chuck (Further info available upon request.) Have a "Kabuki Day!"

Rhythmathology™ is defined as the ART and STUDY of RHYTHM and MATH. From the beginning of time, “music” has served as our Universal Language, “rhythm” being one of the three essential elements. Every world culture has developed their own unique form of rhythmic communication evolving over time and played upon the indigenous instruments of their land. Over thousands of years, these multi-cultural rhythms have become accepted as the common, unifying language & have been handed down through the ages to become recognizable in all of the music we hear & experience today.

In and of itself itself, RHYTHM is it’s own Universal Language, whereas “Rhythmathology” is the Art & Study of how these rhythms have evolved structurally so that they can be thoroughly understood as well as accurately performed with all of their distinct and dynamic rhythmic nuances still intact.

The “faces” of the world of Rhythmathology™ include all players, performers, students and educators of the Art & Study of rhythm – both professional and amateur alike. They are a passionate breed, deeply dedicated to the study and performance of all simple and complex world rhythms which, over time, have shaped and formed what is known as our Universal “Rhythmic” Language.
Rhythmathology™ celebrates these professional musicians, educators and students who are dedicated and committed to the Art, Performance, and Study of Rhythm and Math. Rhythmathology™ encompasses and spans the entire globe...from the Regions of Africa, India, Asia, Persia & the Middle East.....to Europe, North and South America, including such rich and historic rhythmic cultures as Cuba, the Caribbean, Australia, New Zealand and wherever the far reaches of these rhythms continue to thrive, exist, live and breathe.We offer a wide variety of clever, insightful, fun, unique, intelligent and educational musical products which express and embrace this ongoing rhythmic evolution, and the continuing art & study of rhythms globally....so that the joy of playing music continues to “UNITE” all Cultures of the World through this powerfully seductive and infinitely magical language we call “Rhythm.”

Keith Gibbs is a native of New York City, the South Bronx to be exact. He graduated from William Howard Taft high school in the Bronx and there after enlisted in the United States Marine Corps.
Gibbs’ first tour of duty was Okinawa, Japan where he spent 18 months learning the military supply system. Upon leaving Okinawa he toured many locations around the globe. In the early 80’s Gibbs requested to become a Drill Instructor. This was a very rewarding and challenging duty assignment. Training 90 men on a quarterly basis and being responsible for their total being was a tremendous task to be accomplished. Gibbs also spent several years as a Marine Corps Recruiter. Enlisting men and women from all walks of life, and from different levels of education, he was the number one recruiter for Los Angeles County in 1987.
After spending 13 years in the Marine Corps, Gibbs made a bold move and enlisted in the United States Army. There he continued to apply his expertise as a top level medical recruiter. His job was to work his way into the hospitals and employ nurses and doctors into the Army/Nurse Corps. Gibbs also had the pleasure of attending the Master Fitness Training course in Helena Montana where the air was thin and the mountains high. With over 22 years of dedicated and faithful service to his country, Gibbs retired from military service with 18 different MOS (Military Occupational Specialty) on June 30, 2000.
As a civilian, Gibbs took on the task of completing his college degree while maintaining a full time job.

But the determination and hard work paid off and Gibbs graduated with a Baccalaureate Degree in “Computer Information Technology”. Gibbs went on to work for a number of top organizations including Lockheed Martin Information Technology Group, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and Deloitte. While his career in Information Technology was professionally rewarding, Gibbs realized his true passion was to work with individuals to improve themselves and their communities. It is this passion that led Gibbs to form Sarges Community Base, Inc. a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) (sargescommunitybase.org). Sarges Community Base is dedicated to training the youths in under-serve communities.
Gibbs, his family and a small but extremely dedicated team of staff and volunteers manage the two entities and their programs. While the day-to-day challenges are never easy, Gibbs “passion for fitness, a lust for life” sets the tone for everything. He sees himself bringing life back into a body that has been dormant far too long. Gibbs says an “engine is driven by its power, determination is moved by its passion, and fitness is the key”.
They really need two 12 passenger vans to transport the youth and adults, a water sponsor for the 52 hour weekends the cadets take.

Achinta S. McDaniel, Artistic Director at BLUE13 DANCE COMPANY joins Mother Love in studio for a fast paced breezy about conversation about the company's latest show, FIRE & POWDER.
Achinta and Associate Artistic Director, Arun Mathai, will present the world premiere of FIRE & POWDER, a modern day dance theatre adaptation of Romeo and Juliet and West Side Story in which the rival houses of Hip-Hop Capulets battle Bollywood Montagues. The tale of star-crossed lovers is told through contemporary Indian dance, hip-hop, Bhangra, break dance and tap set to a rousing soundtrack including live drumming by Dhol Nation, modern rock and Bollywood hits, and original music by composers from around the globe. This fiercely energetic new show, featuring over 20 dancers, will be presented on Saturday, August 3, 2013 at 8:30 p.m. at the John Anson Ford Theatres, 2580 Cahuenga Boulevard East, Hollywood, CA 90068.
Achinta S. McDaniel had this to say about the creation of this new show: “The connection between Bollywood and hip-hop is so great, and was such a natural path for Blue13 to take in Fire & Powder. Both are cultures include music, dance, fashion, and beyond, with varied traditions and pasts. Both are huge umbrellas for movement genres falling within each, from b-boying and popping and wacking in hip-hop to classical Indian and Bhangra seen in Bollywood. What strings them together for us as dancers and choreographers is the contemporary undercurrent, and the telling of the story: our homage to Romeo & Juliet with the ‘wrong side of the tracks’ sensibility of West Side Story. Rival gangs characterized by Bollywood versus hip-hop just came to me as an obvious choice in Fire & Powder’s inception. Working collaboratively with Sara VonGillern, who is just a gorgeous contemporary and hip-hop choreographer, has been a great fit. Workshopping in the studio with all of the dancers has been a truly collaborative environment as well, using everyone’s individual strengths to create a strong and beautiful production. The seemingly clashing genres are a perfect match for us! From whirling upside down b-boys to flirty Bollywood snippets to emotional modern pieces, this show really has something for everyone. Oh, and don't forget the amazing music!
Tickets are $45 for VIP Packages, which include Gift Bags, Raffle Tickets and post-show Meet & Greet. Full Price: $30; Student: $15 with identification; and Children $12 (Ages 12 and under). Patrons purchasing tickets prior to July 27th will save $5 on each ticket purchased.

This event is held in 4 cities LA, The OC. The Inland Empire and Las Vegas.
The LA event is Thursday July 18, 2013 from 5-9 PM
Dave Linden, Chicago, decided to migrate West leaving his traffic radio job at CBS’s WBBM-AM for a warmer, better career. While working on the air in Palm Springs, he started a public relations company only to end up promoting the annual Largest Mixer® which brings a combined attendance of nearly 10,000 business people, over 100 local chambers of commerce and business membership organizations to Los Angeles, Orange County, Inland Empire, and Las Vegas. This year marks 15 years of what some describe as the Superbowl of networking business mixers.
After getting up at the crack of dawn, walking through 10 feet of snow each winter to be the traffic reporter on CBS’ WBBM Newsradio 780, Chicago, Dave Linden moved West to the desert for stints on the radio. Later he discovered through his public relations firm in L.A. that he had niche to bring so many great organizations to one place to network and get new business. Dave Linden is the event producer of the Largest Mixer®. Linden has figured out how to get over 100 local chambers of commerce and a combined attendance of nearly 10,000 business people in one place to exchange cards, network, brand companies, attract and grow business in Los Angeles, Orange County, Inland Empire and Las Vegas. The man once known in Palm Springs as KDES-FM’s "Nighttime All-Request Party Host” or “Mr. Romance” has danced his way to L.A. to continue his voice-over career and start a public relations company that now, more than a decade and half later, produces the annual Largest Mixer events. The yearly networking mixers include: Orange County’s Largest Mixer each March; L.A.’s Largest Mixer in July (this year, July 18th); Las Vegas’s Largest Mixer in September and the Inland Empire’s Largest Mixer in October.

Payne was born in Detroit, Michigan and grew up listening to different jazz singers, such as Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday.As a teenager, she attended the Detroit Institute of Musical Arts; she soon began singing radio commercial jingles, and took part in (and won many) local TV and radio talent shows.
In 1963, she moved to New York City and worked with many different entertainers, including Quincy Jones, Pearl Bailey, and Bill Cosby.The next year, her debut album, a jazz recording entitled After the Lights Go Down Low and Much More!!!, was released on the Impulse! label.(This album was re-issued on CD in Japan in early 2002, and again in the United States in 2005.) Three years later, she released her second album (another jazz effort) How Do You Say I Don't Love You Anymore, for MGM Records.She also made occasional guest appearances on different television shows including The Merv Griffin Show and The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.
She added theatrical credits to her repertoire; she understudied Leslie Uggams for the Broadway show Hallelujah Baby in 1967,and appeared with the Equity Theatre in a production of Lost in the Stars.[citation needed]
In 1969, her old friends back home in Detroit, Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier, and Edward Holland, Jr., persuaded her to sign with their newly-formed record label Invictus.During that same year, her first Invictus single, "Unhooked Generation" (a minor R&B hit), was released.Shortly thereafter, Eddie Holland offered her a song entitled "Band of Gold", which he along with Brian Holland and Lamont Dozier co-wrote (under the pen name Edythe Wayne) with Ronald Dunbar.In early 1970, the song became an instant pop smash reaching #3 in the US and #1 in the UK for six consecutive weeks; it also gave Payne her first gold record.Global sales were estimated at two million.An album of the same name proved to be fairly successful as well.Other Invictus singles included "Deeper and Deeper", "You Brought the Joy", and the Vietnam War protest song "Bring the Boys Home" (U.S. Billboard Hot 100 #12, 1971; her second gold record.Her other Invictus albums were Contact (1971), The Best of Freda Payne (1972, a compilation which included four new, unissued songs), and her last Invictus album Reaching Out (1973).

She released three disco albums for Capitol from 1977 to 1979, "Stares And Whispers", "Supernatural high" and "Hot".The first one features the disco hit "Love Magnet" produced by Frank Wilson (1977).
In 1981, she briefly hosted her own talk show Today's Black Woman,and also found work acting in different movies, Broadway and other theatre productions throughout the 1980s.Although she was concentrating more on acting by that time, she never gave up music; in 1982, she recorded a single entitled "In Motion" for the Sutra label in New York, and in 1986, she recorded a remake of her old hit "Band of Gold" with Belinda Carlisle.[citation needed]
In 1990, she recorded three songs for Ian Levine's UK Motorcity label: another remake of "Band of Gold," "Memories and Souvenirs," and "Only Minutes Away."[citation needed] In the mid 1990s, she released three albums for Dove Music: Freda Payne Sings the (Unauthorized) I Hate Barney Songbook: A Parody (1995, a comedy album), An Evening With Freda Payne: Live in Concert which featured her sister Scherrie Payne on background vocals, and her first (and only) Christmas album Christmas With Freda and Friends, which featured a duet between Freda and Scherrie (both 1996).She also continued her acting career appearing in the films, Private Obsession (1995), Ragdoll (1999), Nutty Professor II: The Klumps (2000), and Fire & Ice (made-for-TV, 2001).
In early 2001, Payne released a new album entitled Come See About Me for the Volt Records label (the title track is a remake of The Supremes' hit).
In early 2003, she performed in a show called Love & Payne, with Darlene Love at Feinstein's at the Regency in New York, and at the Cinegrill in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles, getting excellent reviews.
During the early 2000s, the following compilation albums of her music were released: Lost in Love (which includes nine of her post-Invictus recordings), Band of Gold: The Best of Freda Payne (both 2000), Unhooked Generation: The Complete Invictus Recordings (2001), and The Best of Freda Payne: Ten Best Series (2002).

In wake of the Supreme Court's ruling on the Voting Rights Act to gut Section 5 :
Marcia Johnson-Blanco, Co-Director, Voting Rights Project calls in from Washington, DC to explain what this crazy decision means to voters especially in the South.
She heads The Lawyers' Committee's Voting Rights Project where she directs the following programmatic areas: Election Protection, Election Reform, Census and Redistricting and Felony Disfranchisement.
Prior to her present position, Marcia was senior counsel in the Voting Rights Project. In that capacity, she served as the deputy director of the National Commission on the Voting Rights Act, a private non-partisan Commission organized in 2005 to determine the extent of discrimination in voting since 1982 when the Voting Rights Act was last reauthorized. Marcia organized the Commission's ten hearings and coordinated the research teams which supported its work. The Commission's Report, Protecting Minority Voters: The Voting Rights Act at Work, 1982 - 2005, and its background documents became part of the Congressional record that supported the 2006 reauthorization of the Voting Rights Act. Marcia participated in the legislative advocacy supporting reauthorization. Following reauthorization, she served as a member of the litigation team defending the constitutionality of the Act.
Since 2004, Marcia organized Election Protection programs in several states and cities and trained hundreds of attorneys who volunteered for the nation's largest non-partisan voter protection program. In addition to organizing Election Protection Programs, Marcia evaluates election-related legislation on the state and federal level to determine the effect it is likely to have on minority voters. In addition to her programmatic and legislative work, Marcia has litigated a claim under Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act and defended minority, elderly and disabled voters from disfranchising voter identification laws. She has also coordinated and drafted amicus briefs filed before the U.S. Supreme Court and state courts underscoring the effect of voter identification laws on certain populations.
Marcia also works to bring a stronger human rights focus to U.S. policy making. She also serves on our Board's International Law Committee where she monitors U.S. compliance of its treaty obligations under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Convention on the Elimination of All forms of Racial Discrimination. Recently, she spearheaded a Request to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights for a comprehensive review of the impact of felon disfranchisement laws on racial and ethnic minorities. She continues to educate both national and international bodies on the disproportionate impact of felony disenfranchisement laws on racial and ethnic minorities in the U.S.
Marcia uses many mediums such as the media, conference panels and meetings of grassroots organizations to educate policy makers and the public on the rights conferred by our voting rights laws and the effect proposed legislation has on minority voting rights.
Marcia is an adjunct professor at Georgetown University Law Center. She received her J.D. from Villanova University School of Law and a Bachelor of Science degree in Linguistics from Georgetown University.

David "Shark" Fralick, Actor, joins Mother Love in studio for a rollin' good time about his life, career and why he wants to be married and have babies.
For the past two decades, David “Shark” Fralick has played the villain, thug or assassin to the shock, horror, or delight of his fans. The hunky bad boy has a humorous and softer side, especially when it comes to children, senior citizens, and animals. He’s a veteran of film and television, having been in more than 80 films and appearing in numerous tv shows. In addition, he adds stand-up comedian, stage actor, motivational speaker, musician, acting coach and “surfer dude” to his many talents and accomplishments.
Born in South Miami, Florida on October 16, 1960, David was the youngest of four in a military household. With a strong love for his country and a deep respect for his father, a Major in the U.S. Army, David followed in his dad’s footsteps in his youth, training in the Naval Sea Cadets and later in the Naval ROTC, eventually transferring to the AFROTC.
David discovered two of his passions at an early age: his love of the ocean and his love of the stage. He received acclaim for his roles in such classics as Butterflies are Free, Of Mice and Men, Glass Menagerie, American Buffalo and Hamlet. He attended the University of Alabama, where he played wide receiver for legendary coach Paul “Bear” Bryant and was a member of the water skiing, rugby, swimming and tennis teams. He’s also very proud of his ’79 Championship Team ring.
Being bitten by the acting bug, David chose to pursue the arts. His tv and film career started in the mid-80s on Miami Vice and Revenge of the Nerds II: Nerds in Paradise. In 1989 he moved to California to work with David Carradine in Final Sanction.
His strength of character and physical toughness has served him well, having been in over 80 action or horror films including Assassins, Invasion Force, Downward Angel, Blindfold, Soul Taker, Dark Rider, Final Payback, Gone in Sixty Seconds, Desert Heat, Lockdown and Uncle Sam. David’s characters are always on the wrong side of the law.
A regular on the small screen, David’s had notable roles in V.I.P., Sons of Thunder, Babylon Five, and The Big Easy. However, David may be best known for his eight years on the #1 daytime soap, The Young and the Restless, as Larry Warton, the reformed ex-con and secret love interest of Jill Abbott.
David also has a natural knack for comedy. He’s performed stand-up in dozens of clubs, and emceed or hosted several charity events. His comedic timing, range of voices and dialects, and improv skills bring joy and laughter to many.
A man of conviction, David’s love of God and country is evident in everything he does. When he’s not working, David is busy with charity events and activities for Make A Wish, Special Olympics, Autism and ALS. He’s also involved with pet charities such as Best Friends, Nuts for Mutts, Take me Home, and Paws for a Cause. He also spends time with his two dogs, loves the outdoors and golf, collects and restores classic and antique vehicles, and plays bass guitar and piano.

Doctah B Sirius aka The Medicin Man calls in from Atlanta to share his wisdom of wholistic healing.
He is a leading mind, body and spirit medicine man, master herbalist, natural remedy and healing pioneer, and wellness educator. He is a widely respected healer with ever-growing followers, who trust him with their physical and mental well being. His mission is to create more harmony on the planet by transforming lives, one person at a time. Born into a long line of healers, counselors, and teachers with roots in ancient America, Africa and India, Doctah B continues this long family tradition entrenched in natural healing and higher consciousness. Combining herbs and his own natural remedies with several techniques and modalities, he empowers individuals to heal physically, mentally, and spiritually, while guiding them to regain and maintain their overall health and mental wellness. “By addressing the root cause of our imbalances and deficiencies, we create a way of living that promotes not only physical health, but births an energetic shift to help optimize our true potential as vibrant beings on the planet,” he expresses further affirming the significance of his work.
As a naturalist and prominent master herbalist, Doctah B has an intimate connection with thousands of medicinal herbs, plant derivatives, and natural elements. He specializes in the eradication of systemic parasites and toxins from the body. He developed the revolutionary Total Body Paracleanse Program that induces transformation on every level by systematically eradicating parasites, detoxifying on a cellular level, and releasing mental congestion, while restoring the body’s natural energetic frequency. This natural herbal and elemental detoxification program has rejuvenated countless individuals around the world and those who have experienced it, deemed it among the very best. He understands and continually educates on how parasites, toxins, and deficiencies, along with mental imbalances are the root cause of disease. Hence, balancing the total body from the inside out is paramount.
Being a healing pioneer, Doctah B has developed a mental balancing system called “Subconscious Alignment” which has been instrumental in the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual transformation of many individuals. He strongly emphasizes periodic mental attunement and balancing to ensure our conscious mind and our subconscious past programming be in constant alignment, in order to relieve mental stress, respond versus react in life situations, and ultimately regain our personal power. This multidimensional process allows individuals to awaken and harness their body’s own innate healing capabilities, break emotional barriers, reclaim their authority and experience higher states of consciousness. He is also a certified facilitator of the personal transformation technique PSYCH-K.
Another form of Doctah B’s healing medicine is the gift of music. He channels what he refers to as “Medicine Music” for the soul, as a tool for healing, chakra balancing, and meditation. These keys to one’s inner sanctum consist of healing frequencies that use cosmic resonance to help balance the hemispheres of the brain, elevate states of consciousness, release stress and create an environment conducive to healing.
Doctah B has been given the gift and innate ability to heal, motivate, educate, and inspire by instilling personal power, giving keys to self-realization and awakened clarity to those with whom he works. Channeling his ancestors, this Medicine Man continues on his global path providing natural solutions, sharing wisdom of the ancient healing arts, and giving what is needed to essentially live a wholistic life to help create a healthier, more peaceful planet naturally. And for that, we are eternally grateful.
