  • Melissa Mickelson Live

    in Military

    Join us this week as we welcome country music singer songwriter, Melissa Mickelson. Barbara Mandrell's classic tune "I Was Country (When Country Wasn't Cool)" pretty much sums up Melissa Mickelson. Before settling in Oregon, Melissa grew up as an Air Force brat, moving between bases in Oklahoma and Texas. Her best memories as a kid was when the family would listen to the vinyls of Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings. For as long as she can remember she found herself singing in her hairbrush and dreaming of being on the stage in the bright lights. Today, with the release of her self titled EP she is realizing that dream. The 4 song EP is her first attempt at studio recording and has received strong praise from the veteran Nashville musicians she was fortunate to work with. Melissa has been on a meteoric rise with her live performances, burning up the Northwest's honky tonks and bars. In the last year she has exposed thousands of people to her blend of traditional country, blues and rock and roll. Melissa's fun, high energy performances make her a fan favorite at the premier dance halls in the Portland area. Her determination and work ethic is second to none and she is on a mission to carve out her own niche in a highly competitive market. We will talk to Melissa about her upcoming schedule, get a behind the scenes look at her music, feature her latest songs, and ask her to share her message for the troops. Please be sure to visit Melissa Mickelson at http://www.melissamickelson.net/ and spread the word. Fans are welcome to call in and speak live with Melissa during the show (718) 766-4193.

Our message to the troops: WE do what we do, because YOU do what you do.

  • The American Voice with Kristina

    in Military

    Phil Ruddock For those of you that doubt the effects a Service Dog can have on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD),let me tell you my story.I'm a Desert Storm Veteran,what I did there is only my demons I must face.I came back with all the classic symptoms.I drank all the time,I couldn't get along with anyone,I kept checking every room in the house to make sure it was clear every time I came home,I got up and checked the locks on the doors and windows too many times to count,I was always depressed and pissed at the world,and I never slept.I drove my family so crazy that they wanted to leave.I still do some of those things,but it's getting better.After the military,I worked for the Veterans Affairs Medical Center until about six years ago when my PTSD became so bad, I had a nervous breakdown.For the next three years I basically stayed on my couch,seldom leaving my land except for a trip to town once or twice a month.This became my standard until a nice person named Brenda Wagner asked me to foster some dogs for her.There was one pit bull that was a lot like I was.She was scared,avoided people,wanted to hide under a rock,and always on guard.I worked with this dog named Mia,and we became attached.She would ride with me where ever I went.I started to feel I had someone to watch my back again. That is one of the main things that is wrong when we come back.We go from knowing we have a whole group of soldiers watching our back to coming home and being alone.Mia became my “battle buddy”,She would wake me up when I had nightmares,calm me down when I had an anxiety attack, watch my back at a counter at a store or the bank, even assure me when I had doubts.Mia was the constant in my life that PTSD took away.Everyone would leave for work or school but Mia was always there.After almost two years with Mia by my side,I can now travel some places on my own,but she still comes with me on trips out of town.

  • Hannah Demello Live

    in Military

    Join us this week as we welcome country  music singer songwriter, Hannah Demello. Hannah grew up in Southeastern Alabama where she began singing and writing music at a early age. Throughout her childhood, she was always looking for her 'thing'. She tried sports, art, & literally everything you can possibly think of, but nothing ever stuck for her. Nothing but music. Music was one thing her heart always came back to. Growing up she was introduced to a wide range of different genres from rock to reggae, gospel to traditional country, which is where her roots are planted. In the winter of 2013 is when the true roller coaster began. That's right. Recording. In a matter of weeks, she laid down what would soon be her first 4 tracks. To this day, studio time is always her favorite. After those initial 4 songs, Hannah continued to write and record, as well as play various venues across Georgia, Alabama and Florida. Recently she recorded and released her first single, "Could Be" which is now available on iTunes. We will talk to Hannah about her upcoming schedule, get a behind the scenes look at her music, feature her latest songs, and ask her to share her message for the troops.
