    in Christianity

    Join host Mark Taylor as he talks with Mike Baker, the president of this year’s North American Christian Convention. Mike will give us the latest news about the event scheduled for this June 23-26 in Cincinnati, Ohio, and answer questions like these . . .



    What’s different about this year’s gathering?
    Why do we still need the NACC?
    Which of today’s problems or opportunities prompted the convention program he planned?


    Mike, the senior pastor with the thriving Eastview Christian Church in Normal, Illinois, is focusing his proven leadership skills on a gathering that will bless many thousands. We’ll pick his brain, not only about the convention, but also about the challenges facing every Christian leader today.

    Convention Buzz

    in Entertainment

    I'm Sal Lizard.  I am an actor and entertainer. And I often appear at conventions to meet fans and sign autographs. One problem, that many actors have, is finding out about the conventions and how to get on the "guest" list.  Likewise, fans are looking for conventions to attend, too.  For that reason, I've created my "Convention Buzz" website. Also, I've learned that there are good conventions and some that aren't so good.  But that's my opinion and yours might be different. This radio program igive promoters, actors, and vendors, a chance to plug and "pimp" their events and everyone to discuss their convention experiences -- good or bad.



    Note: Sal Lizard's "Convention Buzz" is a weekly unscripted, unrehearsed, and uncensored entertainment show presented through the BlogTalkRadio network. Due to language used and content of an adult nature,it is not generally appropriate for all audiences. Callers are recorded and the recordings are available in the show archives. Callers may receive cash andor merchandise prizes for their participation in the show or its contests.
