    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.

    The Don S. McClure Show Live - Building The New Empire


    The making of your own Empire and what does that mean in your life.


    Building your own Empire over your life can be the best accomplishment anyone can have over their own destiny.               Usually the word is connected to control of others. But that does not have to be the way you use the word. 


    It can be connected to a powerful and important enterprise that you build through hard work or the investing or holding of a large scope   that is controlled by one single person, family or a group of associates who think along he same lines of unity and direction. 


    It is most often thought of in the since, usually connected to a territory of greater extent than a Kingdom, examples such as the Byzantine Empire, or Roman Empire, or the former British Empire, French Empire or Russian and Spanish Empire. But when the word is used wisely you will find that it will fit inside your life as you build your family Empire, or your business Empire. That will serve and benefit others. Hopefully for years to come.

    in Lifestyle

    Don S. McClure Show Live- Book Talk, Author Conversations:


    Featuring Author Ambrose Okosun


    While author Ambrose Okosun was just beginning his life in March of 1973 in Lekki, Nigeria, his parents’ marriage was ending. Left with his grandparents to eke out a living in a small village, Okosun was separated from his mother and was not allowed to see his birth father. From a young age, he was dealt a hard life.


    In A Boy and His Dream, Okosun shares the struggles he endured and how he strived to overcome those early challenges. From hunger to being ostracized by a polygamist family, he experienced severe poverty while growing up. At the same time, his elders imparted important lessons that Okosun took to heart, including the message that he was in charge of his own destiny.


    Learning by trial and error and with guidance from God, Okosun tells how he became educated, earned several degrees, and immigrated to the United States. A Boy and His Dream narrates the story of a man who has come a long way from being an abused little boy in Nigeria.
