    How Miami snowed the Feds in the 1980s with "cocaine running round the bay"

    in History

    Jon is flabberghasted by the fact that the drug war in Miami was so intense in the early 1980s that even Ronald Reagan was advised not to enter the city of Miami at ALL.  The early 1980s was brought on by a borderless situation where drug lords overran local civil authority in Mexico, Colombia and other Central American states.  1 in every 4 people who died in Colombia died by drug related offenses.  It didn't help that by the mid 1980s, Nicaragua and El Salvador was infiltrated by the CIA who were training rebels to fight the powers that be.  This probably irritated drug lords more that America had their hand in the cookie jar.  Jon goes into the dynamics of the drug trade in Florida, not necessarily the government underpinnings.

    "MIKI HOWARD" - EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW-THUR, APR 16, 2015 - 5:00PM PST

    in Music

    Alicia Michelle "Miki" Howard (born September 30, 1960) is an American R&B/jazz singer and actress who had a string of Top 10 hit songs in the late-1980s and early-1990s, including "Baby, Be Mine", "Come Share My Love" and "Love Under New Management". "Ain't Nobody Like You" and "Ain't Nuthin' in the World" both peaked at number one on the U.S. Billboard Top R&B Singles chart.


    Howard was born in Chicago, Illinois. She is the daughter of gospel singers Josephine Howard[1] of The Caravans, and Clay Graham of The Pilgrim Jubilees.[2][3] Howard's mother took her to the homes of various stars such as Aretha Franklin and Mavis Staples. At the age of nine, Howard and her family moved to Los Angeles where Howard's mother sung in a choir led by Caravans member and arranger James Cleveland. Among those who visited Howard's Los Angeles residence were Albertina Walker, Shirley Caesar, Billy Preston and Fats Domino. Howard was also influenced by jazz greats, Billie Holiday, Dinah Washington and Nancy Wilson.


    As a teenager, she often visited Maverick's Flat, a popular night club in Los Angeles, and a venue for music acts such as Rufus and Chaka Khan and Earth Wind & Fire, who were influential in her pursuit of a professional singing career.


    At the age of 16, she performed in a teen pageant. After the show, she met singer Augie Johnson,[4] leader and member of R&B group Side Effect,[5] who happened to be in the audience and began working with Howard on music. Johnson charmed Howard and later chose her as the vocalist for the group.

    Mohsen Paul Sarfarazi Ph.D Multi-Dimensional Consciousness

    in Spirituality

    Dr. Mohsen Paul Sarfarazi is a self-retired professor of Non-Linear Continuum Mechanics with specialization in Micromechanics of Materials,an area in science which was introduced by him and soon made popularized by other scientists in early 1980s. Dr. Sarfarazi decided to concentrate his attention on a new and pioneering field he termed micromechanics, and wrote his thesis on A Micromechanical Constitutive Modeling of Brittle Crystalline Solids. Dr. Paul  soon came to the BELIEF that the ‘Universe is all complete and we cannot further add to its consciousness through research". Dr. Paul soon came to the intuitive understanding that we contain the knowledge of ALL THERE IS within us. He soon came to the intuitive realization that we can discover, and we can invent; but we can never create from abstract as ALL THAT CAN BE CREATED FROM ABSTRACT already exists. It is a new Golden Era. It is time for mankind to awaken from amnesia and start to remember. It is time to be, once again, multidimensional and welcome the new consciousness that the accelerating Light and the speeding time is bringing us via raising our vibration rate in order to be able to resonate with the higher frequency of vibrations of Heaven.  on his websites, he can shed more Light on the nature of the upcoming Ascension and the consequent future of Mankind, and his/her general role the Omniverse. It is done in respect and appreciation for the Almighty’s ‘Divine Plan’ for humanity, and in service to God and the mankind. With Unconditional Love!

    Powerhouse Bombshells Cafe Con Leche at Versatile Radio with Company B.

    in Entertainment

     Powerhouse Bombshells, Marcela Olivar brings yet another Classic Dance Group from the 80's to Cafe Con Leche. We will also be treating you to Orlando's DJ Flash in the mixx, and of course the Beautiful Miss Marla G., (aka) "Giggles" will be Co-hosting along with Versatile Radio's Mari Fisher.


    Company B resulted from the music trend of producer-driven girl groups in the late 1980s and early 1990s, most successfully the group Expose. . Company B's first single "Fascinated" was released in 1986 on the independent label The Summer. The song created so much buzz in clubs around Miami that it soon made its way to local radio stations. This in turn led to its being picked up and re-released by Atlantic records. The trio, adorned with white wigs and clad in blue leather, first made waves with  "Fascinated," which took clubs by storm in 1986. It crossed over to the pop charts in 1987, climbing into the Top 30. Follow-up singles "Full Circle," "Perfect Lover," and "Jam on Me"  were also club hits. All were contained on their self-titled album, which charted that summer and the remainder of their output would be repackagings of their hits. In 1989, Company B released its follow-up album Gotta Dance, sporting a revamped image: Also seemingly gone were the Latin-flavored rhythms of the previous album. Singles culled from the album included the house-influenced "You Stole My Heart,"  They have been performing extensively over the past few years and have released new material.
