September 23 - Jazz Vocalist - Toni Lincoln
When vocalist Toni Lincoln was 5 years old, she liked to dress up in her grandmother’s vintage dresses and sing to her dolls which she neatly arranged on her bed as an audience for her impromptu concerts. Little did she know that it would be more than 5 decades later that she would do her first real live singing appearance at a little subterranean Portland jazz club.
Toni Lincoln’s new self-titled CD is testament to her love of the Great American Songbook and her exceptional skill in bringing emotional honesty and her own special sweetness to the genre.
With the haunting sounds of days gone by, Toni is the essence of the crisp, pure, smooth tones that are so reminiscent of standard chirpings made legendary by greats like Ella and Sarah,
AreYouScreening.com host and BFCA film critic, Marc Eastman, and co-host extraordinaire, Shane Leonard, review Lincoln.
Coming in so far at a whopping 95% fresh by Top Critics at Rottentomatoes.com, we're excited to see if we think this one lives up to the hype.
We'll be sharing some interview clips with the cast and crew, and this is sure to be a fun show.
Survive 365 host Klarque Garrison talks with self-made millionaire Brian Joubert, whose new book is titled Running with Blinders: The Top 17 Mistakes of Small Businesses. The author has this to say to the hoards of would-be entrepreneurs who put off starting their business due to lack of bucks: "If you wait on getting the money, you're probably going to be waiting your whole life. I tell people to challenge your thinking. Ask yourself, How long have I been saying that - when I get the money? Because it's not always about the money. It's often about the knowledge. And once you have the knowledge, you can get the money."
The Empowerment Project host Regina Daldo introduces BlogTalkRadio listeners to the Gye Nyame Empowerment Project, a nonprofit organization founded in 2007 to provide a network of services and programs supporting the Pan-African community. "Our fundamental belief is that if you empower an individual, you inspire the family. If you inspire the family, you uplift communities. If you uplift communities, you alter the world's view on humanity. Hope dope is that?" she asks. Gye Nyame, incidentally, is a West African visual symbol meaning the supremacy of God.
Wealthy Sistas host Deborah Hardnett welcomes brand strategist Cassandra R. Johnson, vice president at direct-marketing firm Compass, who explains the recent boom in her biz. "People are starting to grasp the value of having another stream of income. And as they really start to understand how the industry works, they're shifting their thinking about direct sales and network marketing. It's one of the few industries that's recession-proof. When the economy is struggling, this sector actually goes up as people look for ways to supplement their income," she says, adding, "I got the entrepreneruial spirit from my grandfather. He had his own carpet business. And he always paid cash for everything. Not a fancy man. But he worked very hard and always said, 'Get as much education as you can, Cassandra, because no one will ever be able to take that away from you.'"
3 Chicks on Lit host Nakea Murray cuts loose with novelists Victoria Christopher Murray and ReShonda Billingsley, whose new page-turner, Sinners & Saints, tells the story of "first ladies" Jasmine Larson Bush and Rachel Jackson Adams, whose hubbies go up for the coveted position of American Baptist Coalition president. When Nakea asks about real-life correlations to the tawdry tale, Victoria replies: "In some circles, a pastor is a celebrity—just like meeting an actor or athlete. They have so much power. And so often we're attracted to people with power. And if you have all that power and you can sing? It's a wrap. So I think that's the challenge that first ladies have." When our host notes, "I wouldn't be surprised if there's a first ladies reality show coming down the pike," ReShonda chimes in, "I know somebody who was shopping something like that. But I would be surpised if they actually did it, because I can't imagine any pastor would want his wife to do it—and want his dirt out there. It's hard to keep quiet. In this day and age, anybody with a cell phone and camera could out them."
Survive 365 host Klarque Garrison sits down with James Young, who's on a quest to empower every American household with solar power. But first, as the CEO of RaStar Energy Solutions freely admits, demand has got to be ratcheted up big time. "You have to put it in people's face. Like every day on the TV you see the new iPhone 5 is coming, so you get ready for it, you save your money for it, and when they hit the market, you want to be one of the first people to have it," he says. "On the solar-energy front, there needs to be some major advertising and marketing campaigns to educate the public on how much money can be saved using clean energy. If I were a developer and I had 100 acres to develop, I'd probably develop only 90 acres of it. On the other 10 acres I'd set up a 100-megawatt solar farm. And all of my tenants or homeowners who came into the deal would be buying into their own engery co-op."
Rodney Perry Live host Rodney Perry gets up close and personal with Jackie Christie – whom no one can accuse of not standing by her man, former NBA shooting guard Doug Christie. "It's a lonley place out there. A lot of people don't understand that," she says of life on the road in the league. "These players go to hotels. They arrive one, two, three in the morning. Nobody's in the room. They try to order room service; some hotels don't even have it at that time, so they just turn on the TV. All the glitz and glam is when the lights are on and they're on the floor and there's thousands of cheering fans. But when them lights go off and you get on that plane - half the time it's freezing cold," continues the No Ordinary Love author. "I lived the life with Doug and I saw it. And I loved being able to sit there and cuddle my huband, and if he didn't have a good game I could look at him right in the eye and tell him it's OK, because you can get right back out there and play again and win the next one."
Ron Westray -Live at Jazz at The Lincoln Center! Ron talks about his latest CD Jimi Jazz, a tribute to Jimi Hendrix http://www.bluecanoerecords.com/jimi-jazz.html
One of the most highly regarded trombonist of his generation, Ron Westray continues to expand upon the legacy set before him with his CD releases, "Jimi Jazz", "Live From Austin" and "Medical Cures For The Chromatic Commands Of The Inner City".
Professor Ron Westray’s professional contributions encompass a stunning list of achievements in the areas of performance, composition, recording, and publishing. Since the early nineties he has performed as trombonist or lead trombonist with the most prestigious jazz ensembles in the world, including the Mingus Big Band, New York’s Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, The Wynton Marsalis Septet, Irving Mayfield, The New Orleans Jazz Orchestra, and the Marcus Roberts Ensemble, in hundreds of performances around the globe.
African American Conservatives host Marie Stroughter goes one on one with Carolyn Maull McKinstry, eyewitness to the 1963 Ku Klux Klan perpetrated 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham, Ala., which claimed the lives of four of her fellow paritioners: Addie Mae Collins, 14, Denise McNair, 11, Carole Robertson, 14, and Cynthia Wesley, 14. "It was just an ordinary Sunday. What were excited that it was Youth Sunday, which meant we were in charge of every aspect of church that day, from reading the scripture, to reading announcements to bringing the morning message," says the civil-rights activist, whose 2011 memoir, While the World Watched: A Birmingham Bombing Survivor Comes of Age during the Civil Rights Movement, recounts the horrific event. "There were two things on my mind that morning: That I was the Sunday school secretary, and I really was proud of having that job, because I was only in the seventh grade. And the second thing was that Cynthia's father was my elementary school principal, and Cynthia and I were in a social club together. We'd visit at each other's homes and drink punch and play records and just laugh and act silly as girls do. But that week, we'd placed an add in the Birmingham World newspaper announcing that the Cavalettes Club would meet Sept. 15. And then it gave you the names of the girls in the club, but it also said don't forget to bring your $3—we were ordering caps and T-shirts for everybody. So I was excited when I went to church that morning. Then all I remember after the bombing was that I went from dancing on tiptoes to just numb that evening and night and on into the week."
Sister Girl News hosts Candace Bazemore and Felicia LaVette mix it up on the day's most compelling topics, which in this episode include the passing of At Last singer Etta James, and the GOP primaries. On the latter, Candace offers a Bill Mahr-worthy series of observations. "My theory is proving true—that the only way you can chase the Republican nomination is if you have a one-syllable first name," she says. "Ron Reagan. George Bush. Bob Dole. John McCain. And now—they all got one syllable—Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney and my boy Ron Paul." Paul, incidentally, she continues, "is like the old dude who comes to your job all the time. And you just can't wait to hear what he's gonna say to your manager. All the stuff you always wanted to say, he's gonna say."
