Welcome to the Heroes of Katrina: 10 Years After
Pets and Storms
The demographics and statistics are amazing. There are 2.5 animals (cats/dogs…etc. for every American home).
When a population of almost a million evacuates an area and is forced to leave their pets behind…the result is 2.5 million animals…homeless…ownerless…destitute. This was the situation during and after Hurricane Katrina. Indeed the animal issue was largely overlooked by all the rescuing agencies Federal and otherwise.
After Katrina, the animal population was largely overlooked within the rescue and aid infrastructure. All of the guests on Tuesday's show were on the ground and dedicated to the rescue of the animals left behind.
With hurricane season starting June 1st, this show is timely and hopefully can be used as a resource for the animal lovers of the Gulf Coast.
Please join us this very special evening as we welcome our returning guest, Award Winning Author Jenny Pavlovic. We will discuss an extremely important topic....preparing our beloved pets for a hurricane. Jenny Pavlovic, animal rescuer and author of the award winning book, “The 8 States of Hurricane Kate,” will share very valuable advice and insight regarding the necessary precautionary measures needed to safeguard our furry friends and all animal creatures BEFORE a hurricane strikes. Hurricane season is fast approaching - June 1 through November 30, 2015. It's not too early to listen and learn what to do in advance. Please don't wait until it's too late. Feel free to call in and share, comment, question, discuss with Jenny.

The first season’s climax left Cookie’s ex, music kingpin Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard), rotting in a prison cell for a murder he actually did commit, having been betrayed and put away by members of his family. Still, reports that Howard’s role might be diminished were clearly off base if the first three episodes are any guide, as Lucious manages to fight for what’s his – amid a flurry of crosses and double-crosses – even in an unflattering orange jumpsuit.

They are considered the Number One Party Band… Worldwide! Vince has built a reputation as a master entertainer and the hardest working man in Show Business. From wild beginnings on Bourbon Street to two trips to the White House, their audience interactive shows have dazzled millions.
Their song, “All I Want for Christmas is You” is the #1 most-requested seasonal hit for 16 years consecutively! The video was chosen by CMT the #6 All-Time Merriest Video!
During the 5th Anniversary of Katrina, Vince recorded “I am New Orleans”…a fabulous testimony to the spirit of the city and her people. Check out the video at:
Join us for a great show, live from New Orleans as we spend a couple of hours with Vince. Vince will share some songs from his most recent CD, “I'll Never Love This Way Again,” as well as share some poetry from his new book, “The Hard Letters,” Hopefully my co-host Gretchen will be joining us as well!
Author Cary Black is the author of “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 entire premise of our show is based upon where all are now after the train wreck of Katrina...10 years ago. Many have experienced the miracles of destiny....bringing them to new spaces not even imagined before the storm. Lives have changed...Circumstances have changed and, in the end, we are faced with a different world to which we may have gained comfort within...only to be torn asunder by the game-changer: Hurricane Katrina!
Life hits us with circumstances that sometimes seem insurmountable. When a catastrophe, like Hurricane Katrina, comes and inserts herself into the very essence of our being responding to such is naturally traumatic and devastating. However, in the end, at least from my experience, all things happen for a reason....and the divinity that has created us as human beings allows us opportunities for growth through such times.
This radio blog show has always been mostly about the good stuff that has changed human lives as a result of the storm. Tonight, we will talk about how calamity in our lives can transform us to heights that, perhaps, we never would have imagined otherwise.
Lura Lisa, a spiritual leader for Unity Association of Churches will join us this evening to give her perspective on the storm as well as to provide inspirational guidance to those folks who have suffered turmoil, PTSD, or other negatives associated with the storm.
This show will be inspirational to all who have experienced the wrath of Hurricane Katrina.....whether for better and/or worse. Or frankly the upsets that ocurr in human lives...It doesn't have to be a storm...We all have things that happen outside of ourselves that impact us...Let look at this wit open eyes and open hearts...
Wishing all well...and bidding you Namaste in your lives...

The Girl Who Has a Close Shave
Original Airdate: August 26, 2015
Katrina Weidman is a senior at Penn State earning a dual degree in Integrative arts with an emphasis in music production and Theatre with an emphasis in performance. She originally wasn’t going to attend college, but after dropping a friend off at University Park and seeing the campus, she knew it was where she belonged. The next day she signed up for classes at Bucks County Community College, which she attended for two years before transferring to Penn State University Park in 2004. Besides being an investigator for the Paranormal Research Society, she’s been a member of the Penn State Snowboard club since 2004. In 2005 she joined The Lion 90.7 fm as a co-host for a variety of shows and voice over work.
She was born and raised in Bucks County, PA along with an older sister and a younger brother. She was born into an artistic family – both of her parents perform in their spare time and her mother writes original musicals for local playhouses. Some of her earliest memories are watching her mother and father tap dance together on stage; this also coincides with some of her strangest memories of her father dressed in drag for multiple shows. “Either way, my parents helped to shape my love and appreciation for performance art, which is why I’m a performer; I guess you could say it’s in my blood.”
“As long as I can remember I’ve had an interest in the paranormal,” says Katrina. “I knew Penn State was a perfect fit, not only did they offer majors that fit my wants and needs, but they had a paranormal club. I joined the club in 2006 and went through extensive training to become an investigator. I absolutely love every minute of what I do. I get to help people, learn about the paranormal, work with amazing people, and now that we have a show with A&E I get to work in the entertainment world as well. ”

The Girl Who Gets Possessed
Original Airdate: September 9, 2015
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.
