    Heroes of Katrina: 10 Years After: Vincent's...a Survivors Story of Success

    in Books

        Vincent’s Italian Cuisine was founded in 1989 by native New Orleanian Vincent Catalanotto.  From a large, close Sicilian family, Vincent grew up eating wonderful food prepared by his parents who were both great cooks.  Vincent learned to love and appreciate food at an early age, and then spent most of his life working in the service industry, fueling his passion for the restaurant business while allowing him to hone his innate ability to create fabulous meals and to make people happy.


    Vincent opened the first of his successful neighborhood restaurants in 1989.  The “little Italian place on the side street” quickly became Metairie’s hidden jewel.  Vincent developed a menu that showcases the finest and freshest ingredients available (in fact, there are no walk-in coolers or freezers at Vincent’s - produce, seafood, meats and cheeses are delivered fresh daily!)


    Vincent opened a new restaurant in 1997 on St. Charles Avenue near the Riverbend, much to the delight of the Uptown community, which has since embraced Vincent’s Italian Cuisine as their favorite neighborhood restaurant.


        The Vincent’s restaurants endured the ravages of Katrina and bounced back in excellence.  Today they are considered the best Italian restaurants in New Orleans…and some claim the best Italian restaurants in the country.  We love the abiance and hospitality.


        Gretchen and I have discovered Vincent’s and it has become a home away from home…Vincent greets us by name, and takes care of us as if we were part of the family…We enjoy the hospitality at minimum, on biweekly basis.

    Heroes of Katrina: 10 Years After - Firefighter Jim Prince, There and Back...

    in Books

    Jim Prince, a native of Central Michigan with over 20 years of fire and rescue service experience spent about 6 months in New Orleans first as a Volunteer Firefighter then as a Logistics Generalist for FEMA.


    Jim will recount his experiences in the shattered region and provide fascinating insight into events and occurrences.


    Jim had some amazing experiences with FEMA in various ways which he will share.  On this show we will focus on aspects of the infrastructure, how the federal/state/local resources may have been better deployed…and provide significant insight into the balance of the three key governmental entities.


    Cary and Gretchen will be hosting…we encourage folks to call in and share their feelings…See ya there!


    If you don’t like FEMA…call in…ask some questions or share your anger…Call in and lets crawl into the controversy…necessary or not…open discussion is a catharsis…let’s get ‘er done!


    Author Cary Black wrote an epoch novel of American heroism called Katrina: A Freight Train Screamin’.  The book tells the real story of the worst natural disaster to hit the United States.  It chronicles the stories of the people who were on the ground savings lives, the people who were reaching out to rescue the millions of abandoned animals, and the people who survived and heroically came back, dug in, and rebuilt their lives from the chaos.  The stories reflect the thoughts of regular folks having to fight for their lives and finding heroism in their souls as they struggled to deal with the enormity of the storm.


    The book tells these peoples stories in a way that makes the reader realize how far reaching the depth of this tragedy was...Never to be forgotten

    Honey, I inspired the kids! Real tales of the little people behind the heroes!

    in Motivation

    Ever wondered how you juggle being a local superhero and a parent? Ever wondered how the kids of these caped crusaders feel, watching their parents walk out the door into the dangerous night? Ever wondered about the people who don superhero costumes and visit childrens' hospitals, and the impact they have on the lives of the patients who they visit?


    Well, wonder no more, as Rock and Spectre take you on a journey back in time, to hear from the people who matter most: The Kids! We'll have interviews with the children of Real Life Superheroes, we'll be chatting to people who actively work to inspire kids in their communities to live a heroic life, and we'll be talking to those people who donate their time to make the lives of sick children that little bit brighter.


    Got a tale you'd like to share with us? Dial in or log on and join us in the chatroom!
