    Wwe Hall of Famer Bushwhacker Luke returns to Pipebomb Radio

    in Wrestling

    Luke with his partner Butch having gone as far as they could progress in little old New Zealand in the early 70’s  decided they wanted to explore the world of Pro Wrestling, knowing that the USA was the pinnacle. At that time they were known as “Sweet William and the Brute" - The Kiwi’s. First stops were Australia, Singapore, Thailand and then Canada where they spent 3 years, the last one working for Stampede Wrestling owned by the notorious Stu Hart.


    They returned home in 1974 to do live tapings for the first New Zealand televised wrestling show “On the Mat”. In 1979 while working in Hawaii, Roddy Piper and Buddy Rose called the northwest promoter Don Owen. Hence the invasion of U.S.A by the team now known as “The Sheepherders” After ruling the northwest for 15 months they moved on to the NWA headquarters in Charlotte N.C where they became the Mid Atlantic tag champs in a matter of weeks. In the 80’s the Sheepherders were the most hardcore and brutal tag team in North America and held numerous titles throughout the US and around the globe. In mid 1988 the boys got a call from WWF (WWE) and off they went to the biggest promotion on the planet. The Sheepherders were now known as the BUSHWHACKERS who were loved by everyone. These eccentric farm boys from “Down Under” mesmerized millions of fans from all walks of life, young, old, rich and poor from all corners of the globe. 


    Among the many TV shows the boys were featured on was Warner Brothers “Family Matters” featuring the character Steve Urkel. After the WWF era The Bushwhackers worked in England and Europe. Butch returned to New Zealand in 2001 and Luke went on to work in wrestling offices as talent coordinator.

    Hate Exercise Less: Lose Weight, Gain Energy with Greg Mumm, Fitness Trainer


    Greg Mumm is an obsessive learner and, like a curious detective searching for clues, he has spent a lifetime collecting knowledge and information. Greg is also ambitious, and in 2004 decided he would dedicate his life to helping as many people as he could.


    Bothered by people doing endless situps, time-wasting stretches and other unproductive--and mind-numbing--exercises; motivated by people who discipline themselves to exercise, but are miserable; puzzled by individuals who don't exercise, but want the benefits; mesmerized by those who unexpectedly came to enjoy exercise...his first task would be to help people hate exercise less.


    As a certified fitness trainer with a computer science degree (now there's a combination), he has the background and brains to utilize his vast knowledge and experience. In fact, his first book showed that there was a "hard" side to working out (for example: which exercises to do and the minimum time to do them) and a "soft" side to working out (for example: conquering boredom, motivation, and people).

    How Music Impacts Our Lives

    in Radio

    I remember turning on the TV and seeing Public Enemy's "Fight The Power" video for the first time.  I was mesmerized as a 16-year old to see the power within the video of a group of people coming together for a united front.  Even at such an early age I recognized what that video meant to me as a black teen.  It meant that there was still work to do to being about equality in the United States among the races.


    That's just one of many songs that has had some sort of impact on my life.  Some songs remind me of a great time that I had.  Some remind me of someone I once loved.  Some educate me like "Fight the Power" and many other Public Enemy songs did.


    Tonight we'll discuss the following:



    What songs impacted your life?
    Why is R&B/Rap is on life support?
    What was your favorite concert?


    These things and a recap on the previous weekend in sports on the Talk 2 Q Radio Show!


    "No experts.  Just opinions."

    Realm Explorers -- Write Stuff -- 10/21/2014

    in Radio

    The Write Stuff is proud to be a media sponsor of the Bay Area Family Literacy Day taking place on November 1st.  Family literacy is a critical component to getting your children to read & enjoy reading. Further, your children will discover the vastness of their creativity.  Imagine one day you're at home when  a large, terrifying tornado comes out of nowhere, whips up your house and your dog, and lands you in a world full of yellow brick roads, munchkins, a cowardly lion, and a tin man without a heart.

    What if you found  a golden ring with power that could turn you into a dark lord or queen? It mesmerized you, called to you, and haunted you until it consumed your mind. You'd fight hobbits, and creatures of both dark and light, travel mountains, and align yourself with wizards of extraordinary power.

    You may recognize the two worlds mentioned  but what they  have in common is that these tales take us to realms far away from what we know. We are immersed into lands of magic, and mystery. In fact, one of the best things about being a writer is that you can create the world you want. Is it filled with dragons and sorcerers? Do dogs rule the Kingdom? Do the fish and crabs dance under the sea while they save a mermaid from an evil witch with the body of an octopus? Are you the chosen one, given the ability to change the course of two worlds? Can you command a ship with a crew as you head into the unexplored regions of space? Will you step through a gate that takes you to another world as easily as going from one room to the next?

    Are you are Realm Explorer?

    Join me as we talk with author and teacher Annie Lima Douglass as she takes into the imaginations of authors and the realms they create to fill us with wonder. You can join in at 646-595-2083, press 1 to be live on air. Or, you can download the WLUV Radio mobile app. Any way you can, join us.

    Country Music Sensation: Alexis Cunningham

    in Country Music

    People are drawn to Alexis from the moment they see her on stage. She draws you in with her uniquely haunting voice and long mermaid’s tresses, then holds you mesmerized with the wit and power of her words. You find yourself singing along, even if you are hearing her for the very first time.


    In June 2011, Alexis opened for Nashville singer-songwriter, Rick Ferrell at Shawnee State University. Ferrell, who has written hit songs for Tim McGraw, Faith Hill and Martina McBride, has been enormously complimentary of this young woman’s talent and potential.


    She has been interviewed twice for Marshall University’s “Up Late Show,” as well as “Up Close and Acoustic” with Charlie Silvestri on Pottstown, PA radio. She played the Huntington Music Festival in August 2011, and made her radio debut in 2010 on Huntington Radio 106.3, to the delight of her growing fan-base, and continues to be one of their frequently played artists.

    Living, Caring, Learning and Sharing W/Don Durant

    in Writing

    It the beginning of the Iraq War, I sat mesmerized in front of my television as I watched the bombs blowing up over the city of Baghdad.  It was like a television series, and I could only imagine the lost lives in the random explosions.   The Bush Administration alled it Shock and Awe, but the U.S. has never implemented such devastation for no reason at all before that.  Now as we are being thretened and challenged by ISIS, we are finding that the Pro-Syrian fighters  we are planning to train are being swept up and aligned with ISIS. The Congress is still twiddling their thumbs in order to watch as Obama fails.

    LOTL The Comfort Zone Presents Steffanie Christi’an. Debuts new CD' Way Too Much

    in Music

    Stuff Tina Turner, Rage Against The Machine, and Alanis Morrisette into an industrial-grade mixer and crank the sumbitch up to 12. Add a fifth of Hennessey, light up a Newport and watch the roof explode.
     
    Unmeasurable energy. Enormous passion and power. A phenomenal set of pipes. These are the qualities that have attracted collaborators like Big Proof of D12 (who gave Steffanie her nickname Steff Chris), and producer Emanuel (Eman) Kiriakou. They are on display when she opens for artists like Taproot and Thousand Foot Krutch, Erykah Badu, and Talib Kweli. They are the reason shes the secret weapon of jessica Care moores Black Women Rock revues, where she routinely holds her own on stage with rock goddesses like Tamar Kali, Res, Joi, and Dionne Farris.
     
    I can sing anything, but I make rock and roll music, Steffanie says. I already know I don't fit into your mold. I am not here to fit into it. I was born and raised to break it!
     
    On her debut album, Way Too Much, Steffanie Christian gives you more in-your-face, Detroit rock and roll than you can handle. Shell leave you spent, exhausted, and mesmerized, motionless on the floor, begging for one more hit.
