Politics of Popular Culture
No one has had an impact on popular culture like Quincy Jones. As a music producer he worked with greats like Frank Sinatra and Ray Charles before creating “Off The Wall,” “Thriller” and “Bad” with Michael Jackson.
He also launched “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air” and discovered Will Smith. Quincy Jones is making history happen, you can too.
This week on a special edition of the BIG show, we salute the career of industry titan, Quincy Jones during African-American Appreciation Music Month. Jones has worked with some of the biggest names in the music industry over the past six decades and has been nominated for a record 79 Grammys, winning 27 times. He is also tied with Willie Burton for the most Academy Award nominations with seven and became the first African-American to win the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award. We salute this living legend and entertainment icon on Episode 203 of Keeping It Reel with FilmGordon.

What comes to your mind when you think about the 4th of July? For most of us it's fireworks, parades, a day off work and backyard barbecues. But Freedom is not free. The origins of our country began with war. It was inspired by the greater good of obtaining our freedom from Great Britan. The Fourth of July has been celebrated by public readings of Declaration of Independence from the courthouse steps ever since. But not everyone does this still today, so in case nobody's reading it at your court house, I will read the Declaration of Independence to you or you can play this at your own courthouse. In this special Independence Day edition of Home Front, we start by talking with a Vietnam Veteran and then stay with us for the Declaration.
Colonel Quincy Collins was Born on the 4th of July in 1931, He graduated from the Citidel and became a flight commander with the Air Force as a Second Lieutanant. He was shot down over Vietnam which left him as a prisoner of war for the next 7 1/2 years and provides us with a perspective on freedom and war from one who was on the inside.

This week Laurie Beth is interviewed about her new book, "The Contessa Chronicles". While this is Laurie's latest book to be released, it is one that she has carried in her heart for many years. It springs from pondering the many scriptures that don’t resonate with modern times and understanding. From questions that are raised and then left unanswered. As a nun once asked in Berkeley, “Is God really just an old man, a young man, and a bird?” Why are women so easily erased and condemned in scripture? Why are the Wisdom passages so overlooked? Why is the Holy Spirit, presented as a feminine noun in Hebrew, so quickly reassigned a new gender in subsequent translations, leading to a male dominated culture in religion that belies common sense, as well as demographics?
Meanwhile, where’s the fun? The joy? The vibrancy that exists in life and yet seems almost non existent in the stories we are told about God?
Ultimately, Laurie Beth has come to believe two major things. One is that the Bible is a Love Story, largely of unrequited love. Two. That Jesus was a family man in the very largest sense. He spoke constantly about the love he had for his father. He called us his brothers and sisters. With his dying breath he asked that his mother be loved and cared for after he was gone. He invited us to come home with him, and feast at the banquet table. He said he would send the Holy Spirit to finish the work he started.
And even in Revelations, “The Spirit and the Bride say ‘Come.’” The very real possibility of a wedding exists, even though Armageddon has gotten a lot more air time.
And so we present to you, The Contessa Chronicles. A new imagining of how it might have been, and maybe even, really is, if we are open to tasting some new wine, and are willing to saddle up our own horses for the ride.
January Jones-Sherrie Payne-The Supremes
January Jones welcomes Tom Ingrassia and Jared Chrudimsky co-author’s of When One Door Closes: Overcoming Adversity By Following Your Dreams sharing true life stories of people who have overcome insurmountable obstacles in order to live their dreams. Today’s interview features Scherrie Payne, the co-lead singer of The Supremes 1973 to 1977. Because of her powerful voice and petite stature of only five-foot-two, she is sometimes referred to as "the little lady with the big voice."
As a new Supreme in an era when their popularity was waning, because reporters were still asking about Diana Ross. When she arrived, original Supreme Mary Wilson and Cindy Birdsong were the other two members of the group. Payne gained recognition for her vocals in "He's My Man" taken from the album The Supremes.
January Jones with From Hell To Heaven
When you grow up in an environment where the adults violate the trust of the children, it becomes a difficult road to overcome. It takes that one person to influence your life and tell you that you deserve better and you can become something, and be somebody, if you work hard to find your way.
I want everyone to step out on limb when an opportunity arises, and lift up a struggling young child or adolescent. These are formative years for them and they need role models; lots of them. It is so easy to go down the path of least resistance which is not always the best path. It is a crime that the adults in my life during childhood did not think it important enough to protect innocent children from violence, abuse, and a sexual predator.
