SYNOPSIS: Betty Tucker came of age in Belle Glade, Florida, infamous for its poverty and violence (e.g., see the Wikipedia entry and the 2006 documentary One Percent). Her childhood was one of debilitating poverty, borne of racism: exploitive migrant labor, multiple rapes and other abuse, chronic illness among her family and acquaintances ... the list is long and bitter. Betty survived not only by sheer hard work but also by nurturing a nascent belief that she deserved better. She moved to California, earned her college degree, and raised a family. Then, in 1997, she began a long and eventually successful search for the twin girls she had given up for adoption thirty years earlier.
AUTHOR BIO: A native of Troy, Alabama, Betty Tucker has a degree in behavioral science from the University of San Francisco. She also has a Clear Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. She worked for nineteen years with the U.S. Postal Service and for nineteen years with the San Francisco Unified School District. She has five children and four grandchildren and now lives in Richmond, California, and in Montgomery, Alabama. Thank you for your consideration.
Fear, insecurity, sexual abuse, want, neglect: This memoir will look beyond the description of these difficulties in the author's life to examine how they stifled her ability to shape her own life, how she acquired the tools she needed to take more control of her life, and what impact her choices, both intentional and unintentional, had on her life and those of her children.

We will talk about The Holidays with her and talk about her show Movie Addict Headquarters and her book she had published called Confessions of a Movie Addict.

We are honored to have on this show the Broadway legend, BETTY BUCKLEY, interviewed by OutTakes host Tammy Weston. Betty, who has been called “The Voice of Broadway,” is one of theater’s most respected and legendary leading ladies. Her career spans theater, film, television and concert halls around the world. She most recently was inducted into the Theater Hall of Fame for 2012. In this interview, she talks about her career, her experiences as a student and a teacher...and her new recording GHOSTLIGHT.
Film critic Mack Bates and host Betty Jo Tucker review two new Susan Sarandon films -- The Last of Robin Hood and The Calling. Scott Abramovitch, who wrote the screenplay for The Calling, plans to join the discussion, and Richard Glatzer, director/writer of The Last of Robin Hood, has been invited to call in.
The Last of Robin Hood follows Errol Flynn's scandalous affair with a star-struck teenager during the late 1950s. Cast members include Kevin Kline, Dakota Fanning and Susan Sarandon. This intriguing movie deals with the desire for fame and the high price it exacts. Kline plays Flynn; Fanning portrays the somewhat naive teen; and Sarandon is her fame-obsessed mother.
In The Calling, a mysterious and suspenseful thriller, Sarandon portrays a world-weary detective trying to solve a series of gruesome murders. With these two very different roles, this talented Oscar-winning actress again proves her versatility.
An avid Sarandon fan, Mack Bates conducted an in-depth interview with Sarandon a few years ago for The Leader, a University of Wisconsin student newspaper. He also contributed to Tucker's book about Sarandon (Susan Sarandon: A True Maverick) and now writes for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. He also serves as a staff blogger for Milwaukee Magazine's official film blog.
On August 19, 2014, RevKess got to sit down at the KZUM studios and talk with SJ Tucker and Betsy Tinney. Both ladies are truly magickal beings and they were in Lincoln, NE to bring their special kind of musical magick to an audience at the historic Feguson House. Earlier in the day they met with RevKess to talk about their music, their lives, and share of themselves with listeners of Murphy's Magic Mess on KZUM - and with the PMPChannel listeners.
August 24 heard the first part of this conversation on the Mess. The second segment, split into two parts, was heard on September 7. For your listening enjoyment is the entire interview and a selection of music. The music is slightly different from that heard on the Mess.
