    in News

    Take your medication and make sure refills are available at your local drug store. Summit Academy OIC’s Louis King, a decorated Army veteran, advocate for education in the black community and businessman will be our special guest on Wednesday, Nov. 19 at 8:30 p.m. 

    By The Ron and Don Show

    On last weeks program, hosts Ronald A. Edwards and Don Allen tore open a hornets nest on the $26 million dollar proposal submitted to governor Mark Dayton last month. There are many questions about who will actually get money on behalf of Minnesota’s black community and why there are no job descriptions, outcomes or meaningful dialog with local community members about the proposal.  Mr. Louis King will join us at the top of our program (8:30 p.m.) to answer questions within his fold. 

    This show will also cover: 

    A local preacher has contacted IBNN NEWS to threaten the editor-in-chief with bodily harm. Although this preacher does not know there are forces beyond his comprehension watching his moves and monitoring all conversations.  
    What’s happening with the Minneapolis NAACP? No notices sent out to members will spell disaster for any election. 
    #pointergate: A waste of time and a distraction from the real business of the black community. 
    The Minnesota African American Museum and the pending lawsuit – what happened to the money? 
    Ferguson, Missouri – how many black folks must die before we will overcome? The latest updates live from our sources in that city. 
    University Campuses: Black men need assistance. The campus atmosphere has rejected black-male masculinity in favor of protecting rights for sexual orientation. 

    Join us on Wednesday for a real look on what’s happening in the black community locally and nationally.

    The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was in Memphis in support of benefits for the Sanitation workers. Mysteriously a bogus group attempted to infiltrate his efforts and  came up with approaches and ideas contrary to the methods used by the SCLC (Southern Christian Leadership Council).  Their efforts were rebuffed, but on the day of the planned march they interceded and created a riot where a young black boy was killed.  The handlers of Dr. King rushed him to a vehicle and out of the way of danger.  A Planned sit-in across from the Capital had been planned for months and  was scheduled days after the Memphis March.   So much negative press went out from the head of the FBI, and members of Congress, calling Dr. King a coward for starting a  riot and then running away.  This forced him to change his plans and head back to Memphis to finish the work he had begun.

    Governor cuomo proposed using his budget surplus to fund a $154 Billion dollars spending plan that includes $2.1 billion increase in school funding, and the legacy building construction projects.  But what about those who are hungry and unemployed? He states that he has kept state spending under a 2 percent cap, which allows him now go wild. He is cashing in on $9.3 billion in Federal aid and much $$$ Sandy revenue. He stated he would authorize mixed martial arts matches in the state as a tax revenue producer. He underscored his announcement proposing billions in overhauling Penn Station, A third rail for the long Island Railroad and a possible tunnel from Long Island to Westchester, the Bronx, or Connecticut, a billion on Jacob Javits changes, and still no word on increased tolls on the Tappanzee Bridge.  I guess he wants to be another Trump.  Tune in a hear all about it on blogtalkradio.com /don-durant

    The Don S. McClure Show Live - The Pursuit of bringing Jazz and building stronger networks

    Tonight’s: Topic The Pursuit of Jazz Our special extended show will take a look at the music of Jazz. Audio Recording by from Billie Taylor so this is jazz and interpretations from those who played and created jazz to those who study the history of jazz from the BBC perspective.  

    I grew up in a home with older brothers who loved the music of jazz, and I became aware of many names like Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Stan Gets, Monk and Dakota Staton, Kenny Burrell and Joe Sample just to name a few and of course Louis Armstrong. But there were many others my older brothers introduced me because they played in a jazz group themselves. My older brother Marvin played in his own Jazz group and made a recording of Fly me to the Moon. My Brother Roland also played Jazz while he created many of his artist drawing and while he entertained many of his friends in our home.  My mother and father loved Louis Armstrong and Sarah Vaugh but my favorite singer was Dakota Staton and Nancy Wilson as I grew up hearing the music of Jazz.

    The audios are part one of The History of Jazz and part two the BBC look at Jazz and Louis Armstrong.
