"Talk Radio Advocate" Francine Silverman is a multi-published author, publicist, newsletter editor, and radio host. She is also author of 16 ebooks of talk radio shows, ranging from animals to sports.
Prior to writing books, Fran was a newspaper reporter at Gannett Newspapers and a freelance writer. As a publicist, she gets her clients on radio shows, both on the internet and on the air.
In this episode host Nanci Arvizu talks with author and book promotion guru, Carolyn Howard-Johnson.
A little about Carolyn - Carolyn Howard-Johnson’s several careers prepared her for promoting her own books and those of others. She was the youngest person ever hired as a staff writer for the Salt Lake Tribune—“A Great Pulitzer Prize Winning Newspaper”—where she wrote features for the society page and a column under the name of Debra Paige. That gave her insight into the needs of editors, the very people authors must work with to get free ink. Being familiar with the way news is handled helps her see how different books fit into different news cycles.
Carolyn Yeager discusses Racial Nationalism in the context of “Blood and Soil” National Socialism versus the confused ideas coming from Julius Evola that spirit, rather than ethnic substance, determines culture, and that there is such a thing as a “race of the spirit.”
The images in the slide show are of Evola at different stages of his life and two of his "futurist style" paintings.
Four years after making the 60-hour drive from Vancouver, British Columbia to Nashville, Tennessee, CAROLYN DAWN JOHNSON scored her first hit as a songwriter when Chely Wright took Single White Female all the way to #1. That success led to publishing deals and cuts with several other artists like Patty Loveless, Kathy Mattea, Pam Tillis, Suzy Bogguss, and Jo Dee Messina. After signing a record deal with Sony’s Arista Nashville in 2000, CDJ released music of her own starting with her debut album entitled Room With a View. The project gave us the hit singles & much-loved songs Georgia, Complicated & I Don't Want You To Go. Besides vocals for her own albums, Carolyn can be heard on recordings with Martina McBride, Johnny Reid, Blake Shelton, Sheryl Crow, Kenny Rogers, Loretta Lynn, and Patty Loveless. To date, she has racked up nearly 20 CCMAs, as well as being crowned the Academy of Country Music’s Top New Female Vocalist in 2002. The American Music Awards hailed her as Favorite New Country Artist the following year. She's achieved success and recognition as a producer for other artists including producing the upcoming album for fellow Canadian Country artist Lisa Brokop. “I like to say that I’ve had many bonuses to my dreams … things, people, events and accolades, in addition to - and off the beaten path - from my original goals,” reflects CDJ. “I’ve certainly gone further then I actually imagined, but that doesn’t make me stop in my tracks. I just want to keep doing this for the rest of my life. Music truly is what makes my world go round.”

Saturday Afternoon with Carolyn Yeager returns to the airwaves! The last edition of this program was on April 12, 2014, a month and a half ago. It may not appear every Saturday, and may even show up on a different day than Saturday (!) if it is more convenient that way, but it will still be called SAWCY and archived under that category.
Also notice that the time has changed from 1pm Central to 2pm Central, one hour later than it was before. This is a better time for me and can still accomodate European guests.
Our current year 2014 is the centenary (100th anniversary) of what came to be called the First World War, originally "The Great War." This program will be the (rather tardy) beginning of shows pertaining to this most terrible of wars which, it is widely agreed, set the stage for the even more savage Second World War.

On the 70th anniversary of the Allied landing on Normandy's coast, known as D-Day, which was Friday, June 6, Carolyn looks at the possibility of treason as the reason for the poor Wehrmacht response to the invasion. Highlights include:
Generals and even Field Marshals serving in Northwest France in anticipation of the 1944 invasion were the same ones who participated in the July 20, 1944 assassination attempt on Hitler;
Most likely of all to be helping the enemy was Lt. General Hans Spiedel, FM Erwin Rommel's Chief of Staff, who had authority while Rommel was away and was slow to pass on information;
An unusual number of key leaders were away from their headquarters on June 6, but the weather was thought unfavorable for a landing;
Hans Spiedel was released by the French after the war and in 1957 was named Commander of the Allied Forces, Central Europe, an important NATO post, held until 1963;
The last installment of Oblt. Leopold Wenger's letters from the front have been published - comments are welcomre.
National Action is an organization of British youths who have come together for the purpose of influencing the indigenous White British people to take back their country from the extreme multi-culuralism in which it is now drowning. They do this through street activism, somewhat reminiscent of the National-Socialist "Stormtroopers" in Germany in the 1920's. The job today is more difficult for a number of reasons.
I'll be talking to the leader of National Action about his personal beliefs and inspiration, his organizational ideas, as well as his expectations for actual accomplishment.
