    Author, creator of "Rambo", the incomparable David Morrell on Authors on the Air

    in Books

    Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes Professor David Morrell, creator of Rambo and co-founder of the International Thriller Writers organization.  David Morrell is the award-winning author of First Blood, the novel in which Rambo was created. He was born in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. In 1960, at the age of seventeen, he became a fan of the classic television series, Route 66 about two young men in a Corvette convertible traveling the United States in search of America and themselves. The scripts by Stirling Silliphant combined action with ideas and so impressed Morrell that he decided to become a writer.That “father” of modern action novels was published in 1972 while Morrell was a professor in the English department at the University of Iowa. He taught American literature there from 1970 to 1986, simultaneously writing other novels, many of them international bestsellers, including the classic spy trilogy, The Brotherhood of the Rose,, The Fraternity of the Stone, and The League of Night and Fog.  Morrell’s latest novels, Murder as a Fine Art and Inspector of the Dead, are Victorian mystery/thrillers that explore the fascinating world of 1850s London. Based on years of research, they attempt to make readers believe they are truly on those harrowing, fogbound streets. Both novels feature a controversial, brilliant literary figure of the era, THIS IS A LIVE SHOW - PLEASE CALL IN TO JOIN US 347-633-9609. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/authorsontheair/2015/10/24/author-creator-of-rambo-the-incomparable-david-morrell-on-authors-on-the-air

    Just Saying! In this episode - Why Rambo is more than just an action film

    in Entertainment

    This film series has been used as a template for many other action films of its like. However, the original remains as one of the few films that addressed the issues that those that have served faced when they returned. It was not just about the trained military Green Beret who could handle himself in the jungle - it was about the man who was behind that training and how that machine broke down once he was back to being a civilian.


    This episode discusses why that was so important then, and even more important now. Take a listen and let this inspire you to reach a deeper level of understanding on those who have served us then and those serving right at this moment.

    KELLY O'CONNELL AM 1450: Iowa Cruz & Dem Tie

    in Politics

    IOWA IS OVER….WHAT DID SLY STALONE CALL IT IN RAMBO? FIRST BLOOD! So Cruz’s win preserves his status as a viable candidate. Trump at 2nd doesn’t thrill his fans, but he’s in the game to stay and...who would have guessed Rubio at a strong 3rd? Is Trump Cruz’ John the Baptist? The delegates are well spread out. So now we have our Three Horseman of the Prez-Pocolypse ‘16. The voting was record setting even though there is a wildly divided field. This show the raw virility and  staying power of the GOP field. The measure of trump is how he handles defeat.


     


    Hillary & Gen Bernie Sanders -- a VIRTUAL TIE: what comfort can she draw from an almost exact total? At least Cruz could claim to eke out a 4% win. So what is the future of the Democrat party? A veracity-challenged wife of a dissembling former president who could be indicted any day now -- or not at all? Or is it onto what many democrats have espoused for decades -- Open Socialism?


     


    Meanwhile O’Malley & Huckabee drop out. But shouldn’t many of the other GOP candidates consider the same?


    AND THE GOP IS STILL WAITING TO EXHALE
