Hailing from the "birth place of jazz",Vandell Andrew's destiny was not too hard to find. Vandell started studying music at the age of 13 at a local jazz summer camp in the treme area of New Orleans. It was then that he learned to play the trumpet. After a whole summer of playing the trumpet, Vandell was approached by one of his teachers that his embouchure would be better suited playing the saxophone.
Being that this teacher was the COOLEST sax player in the world, Vandell took this ultimatum as a compliment that his teacher would be even considering teaching him. Soon after learning to play the alto saxophone, Vandell joined the infamous St.Augustine "Marching 100" band. Playing in events and parades all over the world, convinced Vandell that this was what he wanted to do for a living after high school. Following high school, Vandell enrolled in music classes at Southern University at New Orleans, and studied with the legendary Edward "Kidd" Jordan. Shortly after about a month of studying with Kidd, the horrible hurricane Katrina took the city of New Orleans by storm. Vandell found himself relocating to Dallas,Tx. This experience was extremely hard to cope with at first , but Vandell began to like living in Dallas a little more, after checking out the music scene around town. Vandell began writing and working on his own solo compositions. This has led to him sharing stages with many local acts,at many different venues .As well as nationally known acts like Kirk Whalum, and Tom Braxton. This is only the beginning for this young entrepreneur, he is soon to record his debut album in the very near future.
Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain (now officially known as the United Kingdom). Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, and political speeches and ceremonies, in addition to various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States.
Waking up on the morning after...Roughly two-thirds of Black and one-third of Hispanic children live with only one parent. Moreover, research suggests that a father's absence increases the risk of his Black child dropping out of school by 75 percent. And even in the 21st Century information age, too many Americans still live in poverty. If you have read the report to The President of the United States, we’d like to hear your thoughts on My Brother’s Keeper. We're looking at the symbols, practices and promises that strengthen our communities and secure our nation. July 5th, the Morning after American Independence on YouthUSA Radio www.YouthUSA.net.
We have another July 4th where people are enjoying their day off with fireworks, parades, picnics, family reunions, barbecues, baseball games, political speeches and ceremonie. When was the last time you really gave some thought to the reason we celebrate "Independence Day"? It is a time known for our declaration of independence from Great Britian. A time where a future of a newly founded country was unknown and uncertain but the ideal of freedom to succeed or fail motivated the colonist to grow into what we now know as the United States of America. How disappointed do you think the founding fathers would be to know all that they fought and sacraficed for future generations would only bring us back to a people who no longer valued the idea of freedom? You have people from other countries who go through great lengths even death for the chance...not guarantee to make the life for themselves that dream of. With each passing day the American Dream grows dimmer for its sons and daughters not because it is harder to achieve but because the children choose to stay asleep and not make those dreams a reality. We will be live this weekend as we discuss Hiliary Clinton's "being broke" statements, the illegal immigration debate, Supreme Court birth control mandate ruling, and other topics from 2 pm to 4 pm.
This past Sunday, rainbows and glitter erupted on the streets of cities across the continent as equality advocates gathered to march in Gay Pride Parades to celebrate the breathtaking gains in the historic quest for equal rights for LGBTQ citizens. One year ago, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the so-called Defense of Marriage Act (more accurately, the Defense of Heteronormative Marriage By Muddle-headed Sheep Who Just Can't Stand the Idea of Gay). This is also the tenth anniversary of the Massachusetts Supreme Courts game-changing ruling that first recognized the constitutional right of LGBTQ citizens to enjoy the legal protections of marriage. The acceptance of equality has become so mainstream, USA Today covers the topic without batting an eyelash: Gay pride parades celebrate history and marriage.
Unfortunately, the emergence of LGBTQ Equality in the West has triggered a backlash of violent, hate-filled legislation in regions ranging from Africa to Eastern Europe. There is still much work to be done. Join DJ Nika tonight as she shares her personal journey towards self-acceptance. Call in to share your stories. And of course, share your love for the man who ignited our personal pride torches: Adam Lambert. Have you experience one of the Queen + Adam concerts? Tell us about it!!

in just a few days, it will be the 4th of July. Scenes of picnics, parades and fireworks will be everywhere. This is how we celebrate the holiday. It is the day we set apart from all others, to honor the anniversary of the birth of our nation. It is the day America declared our Independence. What is the meaning of Independence Day?
Do we ever reflect on the hardship and terror that the early Americans must have lived through day after day? Do we truly understand the hopes and dreams that lay secretly hidden away in the hearts of the people back then?
On July 4th, 1776, America started an insurrection against the king. Thirteen years before, back in 1763, England instituted a series of taxes and policies that not only hindered trade and economic growth in the colonies, but without representation in Parliament, also violated their rights as English subjects.
It took the early Americans 9 years to understand the futility of appealing to England, all the while enduring the heavy hand of the king. Committees were formed in 1772, exploring options for a Congress of our own. Our first Continental Congress convened in 1774. The following year, 1775, our Congress was declared traitorous and British troops, sent to quell the uprising met resistance from the colonial militia and the Revolutionary War began.
Yeah, around the world, the pride parades were going on. And low and behold, San Francisco had some bouts of violence mixed in...how nice.
Teens were dressed with ass cheeks hanging out. How did I know they were teens? My co-worker seemed to be the expert on what teens look like and what they wear...maybe he's a pedo.
Advertisers were out in force. Pride isn't about "pride" anymore, it's about money. And an excuse for people from all colors, relegions, creeds, sexual orientations, to dress as slutty and tastless as they can.
Thank God for my notes app...otherwise, I would forget all my damn jokes and be boring.
It's as hot as balls out and not getting cooler.
Seifeld has comedians in cars...I have comedians in comas! We don't say shit!
What's up Hot Button Family!
In the midst of Gay Pride Parades popping up throughout the country this week, I am noticing that they are as 'race thirsty' to post a "black face" in their picture as a Tea Party Rally (Not knocking the Tea Party, just saying some do this...) to present a perception that the struggle is most impacted by blacks, because black Americans have been the poster child in the country for oppression and struggle.
With a throwing "$#%^ at the wall, and seeing what sticks" mentality, the gay agenda has intentionally pushed the black male into the forefront of their cause, in order to gain sympathy for their push for acceptance. Once again, black America is being played!
On today's show I will discuss the following:
1. Why Jason Collins and Michal Sams and not Cheryl Swoops and Brittney Griner
2. The Infection of Homosexuality in Gospel Music (When did it become wrong to declare your deliverance from homosexuality?)
3. Selling out the Civil Rights Legacy for political loyalty
4. Sexual Preference vs. Racial Genetics
In no way do I bash or look down upon those who struggle with homosexuality, my intention is to solely call out those "yard jockeys" who have willingly loaned themselves and their support to pushing acceptance for a sexual lifestyle at the cost of the legacy of blacks and civil rights.
Trust and believe, this is a show you do not want to miss!!!

Summer is here and we are wrapping up National Safety Month with tips you can use to beat the heat this summer.
Summer brings picnics, barbecues, parades and fireworks displays, especially around the 4th of July. Summer also brings an increase in injuries from backyard grills, bonfires and fireworks.
The purpose of National Safety Month is to encourage safe behaviors to prevent the leading causes of injuries and deaths. The Council’s National Safety Month campaign includes free downloadable materials to help spread important safety messages. Visit nsc.org/nsm to get involved.
Foreign Policy. How it's failing. Why it's failing. (Hint: when Iraq is burning, perhaps you should focus on Iraq. Golfing, blathering about Climate Change, and consulting Iran for help may damage your credibility.)
Why the primary that ousted House majority leader Eric Cantor is both good and bad for conservatives, and why Democrats are twirling their mustaches and popping popcorn over it.
