    FOI Series: Interview w/ Min. Don Muhammad, Minister of Boston Mosque #11

    in Culture

    The Allah Team Radio presents: THE HISTORY OF THE FOI SERIES

    "An Interview with MIN. DON MUHAMMAD, on his travels as Minister of Boston Mosque #11 for the Hon. Elijah Muhammad and Minister Louis Farrakhan"

    In his late teens in Boston in the 1950s, Don Muhammad accepted Islam as taught by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and worked closely with a young Minister Louis X (Farrakhan), Minister Malcolm X, and received direct personal instructions from the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad.  

    Minister Don wore many hats during his sojourn in the Nation of Islam, while he maintained and nurtured a family of seven with his wife of now almost 50 years, Sister Shirley Muhammad. 

    In 1980, Brother Don was commissioned by the Honorable Minister Farrakhan to aid in the rebuilding of the Nation of Islam in Boston. Minister Don quickly went about the work of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad in the “resurrection of the dead”.   There was the establishment of a new mosque, prison programs, community outreach, the developing of ecumenical relationships, coalition building, economic development, community safety initiatives, and much more.  

    Under Minister Don's watch Muhammad's Mosque No. 11 has become a beacon of light in the Greater Boston area, and known throughout the nation of one of the most progressive mosques in the country.  

    On behalf of Muhammad's Mosque No. 11, Minister Don has received numerous proclamations, citations, awards, and recognition.  He's constantly sought after for general counsel, workshops and panel discussions dealing with various topics of concern.

    Tab Hunter Confidential: Hollywood's All American Boy Had a Secret

    in Entertainment

    Hollywood's All American Boy Had a Secret.  Hollywood legend Tab Hunter drops by The Nicholas Snow Show to discuss a Hollywood life lived in the closet, the subject of the new documentary, Tab Hunter Confidential.

    Throughout the 1950s, Tab Hunter reigned as Hollywood’s ultimate male heartthrob. In dozens of films - and in the pages of countless movie magazines – Tab’s astonishing looks and golden-boy sex appeal drove his fans to screaming, delirious frenzy, making him the prototype for all young matinee idols to come.  Bristling against being just another pretty face and wanting to be taken seriously, Tab was one of the few to be able to transcend pin-up boy status. He earned his stripes as an actor to become a major movie star and recording artist.  But throughout his years of stardom, Tab had a secret. Tab Hunter was gay, and spent his Hollywood years in a precarious closet that repeatedly threatened to implode and destroy him. Now, Tab’s dramatic, turbulent and ultimately inspiring life story has become an explosive documentary feature directed by Emmy award winning filmmaker Jeffrey Schwarz.  The film has the unique advantage of exclusive, unprecedented access to Tab Hunter himself who shares first hand, for the first time, what it was like to be a studio manufactured movie star during the Golden Age of Hollywood and the consequences of being someone totally different from his studio manufactured image.

  • Joyce Zeller, author of horror books, will intrigue you & take callers

    in Spirituality

     During my life I've been a wife and mother.  I've written a food column for a newspaper, designed sets for theatrical productions, and acted and directed some, served in the United States Women's Army Corps in the 1950s, when men and women were separated and we (us females) didn't have guns, worked in print production, became a professional perfumer, created the Arkansas Sesquicentennial Fragrance in 1986, and owned a fragrance retail shop for thirty years. I'm an aromatherapist and this knowledge of essential oils shows up in several of my books. In fact, I've used all these life experiences to create the plots for my books. I use my novels, in all genres, to express myself and share my knowledge.

    Her book: The Haunting of Aaron House

Amalie wants Andy, and take Sam’s life as her own. To do this she must destroy Sam by gradually inhabiting her body. Phineas tries to possess Paul in retaliation. For both Sam and Paul to survive they must enter a world where folklore, spells, Pow-Wow faith healers and witches are part of everyday life. Only the wisdom of an elderly seer will save them from destruction by the spirits that claim them.

    Time to Survive

    in Current Events

    In 1945, America unleashed the power of the atomic weapon on the soil of Japan. Its effects were devastating.  Fire from the sky, cities reduced to matchsticks, and an invisible poison that made its way through your body as easy as an x-ray. Once the world found out about this weapon. Everyone was intrigued. Every country wanted to have it. And when people begin to absorb what this weapon could do, People became obsessed about it.What if there were no Red Cross, no doctors flocked to the scene? What if it was more than one or two cities buteverywhere. Films were made, fiction and nonfiction.

    The civil defense emerge with their hardhats on, drills were implemented and every preparatory step was taken for a situation that was a matter of when not if. To the United States and Russia, and the rest of the world, nuclear war was inevitable. Get ready. Be prepared.

    That was the mindset of the 1950s into the 1960s. As we hit the 70s that feared dipped down some and then resurfaced again the 80s Angela brilliant, moment, when Ronald Reagan said, "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall."

    Then came the 1990s and the new millennium. The mindset was completely different. No one would connect the nuclear war to terrorism. And if they have the means for nuclear weapon, it was in the form of a dirty bomb. Movies likesSum of All Fears, mean the threat of a dirty bomb seem minuscule. That it was very very survivable. 

    This week Rob and Jackie discuss that very thing. Which decade was more prepared? Which decade was more likely to survive.
