Join Christy Demetrakis and her special guest Wolfgang Wolf for "I used to drive a BMW, now I get around in a wheelchair." Tuesday, September 15th at 6:30pm EST.
About Wolfgang Wolf:
Wolfgang Wolf was born in 1951 in Leipzig, GDR, he was taken by his parents to West Germany (FRG) at the age of 10 months because his father was sentenced to 18 years in Siberia for an alleged assassination attempt on the Russian dictator Joseph Stalin.
He grew up in a refugee camp near Stuttgart until 1957. Having studied Visual Communication, Semiotics and Communication Theory , Wolfgang went on to work in Advertising and Direct Marketing (first as graphic designer, later a copywriter). In 1980 he emigrated to New Zealand, travelled up and down the country, photographed a lot, co-founded Ogilvy & Mather Direct, and was their Creative Director. He worked half a year in Los Angeles, USA, and founded his own agency in Auckland, New Zealand, in 1985.
Then in 1990 he had a major stroke, which he barely survived. It left him in a wheelchair, unable to write, barely able to stand, and talk. He did not give up and feel sorry for himself, but went on to orchestrate this change to his new life, and take control of it. While he recovered and adjusted to life in a wheelchair he wrote the book "I’m not stupid, just disabled", which is out of print now, but a revised, version based on it is available on Amazon/Kindle.
Join host Dave Etter and assorted callers as they discuss the Family Readiness Programs for each service. Are they of any use to us men? Are they completely obsolete? Dave has answers to alot of FRG questions, but, what is your take? Keep em or junk em?
MMSRS is a weekly 2-hour web-based call-in radio show (516-453-9167), hosted by Dave Etter, focusing on the needs of men married to serving military members, both men and women. Male Military Spouses are a small niche of military spouses, comprising of only 7%-8% of all military spouses. We feel left out, usually, at support functions - especially those designed with the spouses being identified as "wives"! We get cajoled at playgrounds where our kids play, from the mommies there who think we don't belong. We are proud SAHDs, who gave up our careers to follow our spouses as they dedicate thier lives to defend our country! Here, on this show, we come together and share beer recipes, diaper changing techniques, financial discoveries - manly things, for men! Airs Fridays at Noon CT, rated R for the cussing that can occur, and available for download (podcast) immediately following each show.
Tonight we have Tracy Freeman & Tasha Short Bachelder of the South Carolina FRG as our special guests.
The subjects we are going to spotlight on our shows are the Constitution, the Federalist Papers, the Declaration of Independence & the Bill of Rights. We will also have weekly shows focusing on Shariah Law & Islam.
Starting July 10th Toots Sweet will be joining us as your host as we devote Tuesday nights to "Patria Music" taking back this country one song at a time.
