Fidel Castro’s Revolution and takeover of Cuba began with rallies, parades, and promises of hope but instead the regime gutted the small nation’s system of enterprise and muzzled the dynamic Cuban culture that people enjoyed during1950’s. All symbols of Democracy and Capitalism were torn down and replaced with “Revolutionary Schools” established by the Communist regime to further enhance and spread their propaganda. Cuba’s religious leaders were excommunicated, imprisoned and murdered.
Traditions like the “Cuban Winter Baseball League” became Fidel’s props, instruments for social and economic control. News about kidnappings, murders and imprisonment of Cubans fighting to overthrow the regime became a part the country’s daily existence. It was clear that human rights had become a fairy tale that existed across the sea, in America.
After the failed United States led invasion at the Bay of Pigs, Castro’s oppressive grip on the island grew unbearable. Silvio watched in horror as his father’s attempt to maintain autonomy repeatedly ended in vain and his mother’s frustration with the new Cuba reached a tipping point.
But, the journey to Freedom would not be an easy one, their experiences along the way taught them to adapt and strengthened their resolve to find a new way of life outside their beloved Cuba. With the support of family and friends the Canto's discovered and formed a new identity, they became “Cubanos in Wisconsin”

Happy Father's Day! We have another jam-packed show.
At 8:30 - BadgerNation's Ben Worgull joins the show to talk about all the Wisconsin Badgers recruiting news. Who committed to the Badgers after their huge weekend camp? We'll let you know!
We'll also talk some Northwoods League baseball with the Madison Mallards' Tyler Isham, Assistant General Manager of Marketing and Corporate Advertising. We'll talk about the great promotions they run each year for the fans, how this year's Mallards team has some Madison roots to it, and whether he thinks there's a fanbase for a Big Ten baseball team for the Wisconsin Badgers (though we know the uphill climb it would take for that to happen).
Plus, Milwaukee Brewers, Major League Baseball, and more!
Guest: Frank Burke, businessman, writer and contributor to American Thinker.
We will discuss the allegations against Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin PLUS those missing IRS E-mails.

CUBANOS IN WISCONSIN BY SILVIO CANTO JR
While it isn't an official Laura Ingalls Wilder site, Old World Wisconsin has long impressed Wisconsin's favorite daughter with an annual event. Last year they expanded to an entire month and the month long event returns this year. Come take part in the World of Little House – June 28, 2014 – July 31, 2014 in Eagle, Wisconsin (an easy drive from Milwaukee).

We kick off our third year as YOUR Wisconsin-sports podcast by bringing on another former Wisconsin Badgers standout in the NFL. Linebacker Conor O'Neill talks about the emotions he experienced after the Chicago Bears told him they would sign him as a free agent in June, his training preparation for the NFL, and who he thinks will lead the 2014 Badgers defense under defensive coordinator Dave Aranda.
Plus, we'll talk LeBron James heading back to the Cleveland Cavaliers, and how that'll affect the Milwaukee Bucks. If LeBron can be forgiven in Cleveland, what would it take for Badgers fans to forgive Bret Bielema, or Green Bay Packers fans to forgive Brett Favre?
Can the Milwaukee Brewers get out of their funk to start the second half of the season? Their rough two weeks are looked at, and also we discuss the tragic loss of shortstop Jean Segura's son. We give our sincere thoughts and prayers to the Segura family during this rough and trying time.
We catch up on all things Wisconsin with Friend of the Holy Land, Rich, from Buckaround. We dicuss Wisconsin's QB depth chart, and how it represents an embarassment of riches for the Badgers, and how their WR depth chart is the total opposite. We discuss their unique recruiting challenges, take the pulse of the Gary Andersen era, look at defense, expectations, and a breakdown of the Big Ten West.
So many great projects! How do you get the message out on yours?
Just a Facebook Page? Maybe you use Twitter a bit? Why do others get Press and not you?
Have no idea how to start to get the press you need, and you do need it..
I can and want to help,
Here how and how you can get started on this today!
Another amazing show on tap tonight~
We'll play our conversation with former Wisconsin Badgers tight end Jake Pedersen. How does it feel to have four other former Badgers as teammates on the Atlanta Falcons, and how will he use his undrafted free agent status as motivation for training camp in a month? He tells us!
Plus, it's been an eventful weekend for the Milwaukee Bucks. Ushering in second overall draft pick Jabari Parker to the Milwaukee community, there's now rumors of Brooklyn Nets head coach Jason Kidd joining the Bucks as possible President of Basketball Operations. What is going on in the Bucks front office, and what does it mean for John Hammond and Larry Drew?
Not to mention Milwaukee Brewers talk, and the United States is now headed for elimination soccer in the World Cup!
