Listen to Jazz Night in America on WBGO
You know what September means for the Oscar, Oscar show! That's right, it's time for Garney, Jason, and Jamey to step out on that limb, and make their insanely early Oscar predictions! Even though there's still four months worth of movies to come out, these Oscar experts will put it on the line to predict what nominees and maybe even winners will be announced next February as the best of 2014. It's one of the best annual shows not to be missed!
Born in Barcelona, our guest on 11/19/2014 has made QUITE a splash in his adopted country. Besides the fact that he just voted for the first time - as an American citizen :) Oscar Penas (I can't wait to say his last name: PEA Nyas!) is a gifted guitarist, composer and bandleader with a new CD that is, indeed, bragworthy. "Music of Departures and Returns" is full of inspirations that captivate Oscar - who has discussed the reasons why he was so drawn to Jazz after his childhood studies in Classical Music. He relished the idea of creating melodies and interacting with other musicians. Pat Metheny and Wayne Shorter were sparks that goaded him early on. Then, the music of Pixinguinha - the flamenco music of Spain that was so infused inside of him - all the ingredients that would define the intoxicating stew of Oscar's music - were taking shape. This is a gentleman who has won the "ASCAP Plus Award" - so SOMETHING's working :)
Oscar is visiting us for two reasons. One, he's performing at the prestigious Strathmore in Bethesda, Maryland, in the next few days. We certainly wanted to call attention to that. Secondly, this new album, Oscar's fourth, is full of music that enriches the soul. Esperanza Spalding and Paquito D'Rivera are featured - as is producer, arranger and pianist, Gil Goldstein. He also focuses on quartet: six-string electric bassist Moto Fukushima, drummer Richie Barshay, and the world-class violinist, Sara Caswell.
Besides being an alluring guitarist - both intelligent and earthy - Oscar is a wise man. He knew that, after his education at Berklee and the New England Conservatory, he would have to stand out in the sea of sublime artistry that populates New York City. So, he dug deeply, honoring his roots and his passion for Jazz. The results will make your ears thank you :)
In this first edition of Cross Encounters Commentary, Tony Miano discusses the recent, tragic death of St. Louis Cardinals' ooutfielder, Oscar Taveras, and the issue of speaking ill of the dead.

A special Saturday night episode! Join Jason tonight as he previews the start of the 2014 Film Awards Season, which begins December 1, and the plan for coverage on Oscar, Oscar! Also, all the latest movie and Oscar news and updates before everything gets underway. Also, this month marks the 8th anniversary of the show on BlogTalkRadio, so join in tonight for a few remembrances and maybe a classic moment or two replayed from the first eight years of the show.
Oscar Leonard Carl Pistorius (/p?s't?ri?s/; born 22 November 1986) is a South African sprint runner. Although both of Pistorius' legs were amputated below the knee when he was 11 months old, he competes in events for single below-knee amputees and for able-bodied athletes. At the 2011 World Championships in Athletics, Pistorius became the first amputee to win an able-bodied world track medal. At the 2012 Summer Olympics, Pistorius became the first double leg amputee to participate in the Olympics when he entered the men's 400 metres and 4 × 400 metres relay races. At the 2012 Summer Paralympics, Pistorius won gold medals in the men's 400 metre race and in the 4 × 100 metres relay, setting world records in both events. He also took a silver in the 200 metres race, having set a world record in the semifinal.
In the early morning of Thursday, 14 February 2013, Pistorius' girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp was shot and killed at Pistorius' Pretoria home.
Tonight Pam Degand will be joined by a special co-host Charity Wilder-Fischer along with Kevin W. Womble and our special guest is Publisher and Author Heddrick McBride of McBride Stories Collection
Mr. McBride will be our guest this Sunday evening at 8:00 pm Eastern time. He is the owner/author of a collection of stories that are geared towards African American children. The colorful covers really jump out and catch one's eye. Heddrick's passion came from noticing there were very few books in bookstores, libraries, etc. that were just for black children. The books are very informative and fun at the same time.
He has also worked with ex-offenders in order to help them understand just how important family and being a responsible citizen is.
Presented by TNNDN Network
Host: Oscar McBride, former Notre Dame & NFL Tight End, hosts a show for fans, families, and people who love sports. The philanthropist, author, and mentor will discuss the roles of building character and integrity through sports with a wide ranging group within the athletics world.
Guests: Keith Johnson, President of Falcons Youth & Family. Matt Poston, Head Football Coach of Capo Valley High School.

Such a FABULOUS October already! Gregg Karukas and Kiki Ebsen last week - and two more guests on 10/7 that are absolutely FUN! Jonathan Widran joins us in the second hour of the show - and it's going to be a ball to have him return. Jonathan has thrilled us for years, writing about, reviewing or interviewing Jazz legends. And Pop and Rock artists, too. He's a Chicago native who found his way to Los Angeles and got his degree in English at U.C.L.A. Within two years after graduation, he was introduced to what would be his amazing life via the Catalina Jazz gathering - right around this time - in 1988. Friend Dan Margules had lit a fire in Jonathan concerning Contemporary Jazz - and that fire has blazed uncontrollably (blissfully!) via columns and articles from local publications to national and international magazines and newspapers. He has also managed to write FIVE books on varying topics! Jonathan is considered a "first-call" freelance public relations writer. And does he love to DISH about those in the business :) What a joy to have him with us!
North Carolina born, Geoff McBride, is probably no stranger to your ears. He lit UP "The Voice" a few seasons ago with his blind audition of "Higher Ground!" Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green about lost their minds - and so did WE. The Church foundation of his youth, coupled with the inspiration of Seal, Luther and James Taylor, propelled Geoff into the spotlight that he so richly deserves. If you can blow away his mentor on the show, Lionel Richie, THAT says everything! Geoff's sparkling story is told by way of CD, "Journey to the Soul." He says, "My foundation is in Soul Music - but I am not just a Soul Singer." THAT is because everything he does generates FROM there! Once you hear a few tracks from this Powerhouse, you'll KNOW!
On our 09/23/14 show you should see :
We will be discussing the validity of the global coalition against issis. The issue of domestic abuse in the NFL., Scottland Referendum and choice to stay in the United Kingdom
Cat News, Gun Battle and Mary Jane News.
We will be playing some original music to close it out.
