Wine Muse hosts Linda Rez and William Pollard welcome Rex Pickett--author of what may be the all-time most dramatically influential book about wine: Sideways.
The movie, which was based on that book, was nominated for 5 Academy Awards and won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay; it also won over 350 awards from critics. In 2011 Mr. Pickett published Vertical which continues the story of Miles and Jack as they embark on a roadtrip with Miles' mom, her nurse, and her dog through wine country and middle America. Vertical explores Miles' relationship with his mother and his coming to grips with her impending death.
Mr. Pickett recently adapted his novel Sideways for the stage. It sold out to audiences for six months when it was performed at the Ruskin Group Theater, and it then went on to break all attendance records at the La Jolla Playhouse in San Diego, where it was directed by Des McAnuff. The play is now heading to London's West End.
He has a new book in the trilogy coming this fall, Sideways 3 Chile, you won't want to miss, which follows Miles' life and wine adventures in Chile.

Pioneer, CA – There are times in all our lives when something urges us to achieve something more or leap forward in a new direction. For many people, the most difficult part is finding what that dream is. So what is your dream? What would you go after if there were no obstacles? And how do you utilize what is within you to create something new?
Roberta Pickett is a certified coach, public speaker, trainer and the founder of Roberta Pickett Coaching & Training, specializing in developing individuals to become inspired and empowered leaders. With over 20 years in management and leadership, Roberta integrates her intuition with her training and organizational leadership expertise to bring insight, integrity, and energy to her work.
“I coach and train leaders who want to blaze an extraordinary trail of achievement and fulfillment with peace and joy,” says Roberta. “It’s so much easier when you have a support structure along the way. Athletes and performers do it all the time because they recognize how important a support structure is to utilize your full potential.”
According to Roberta, one of the most important ways a coach can support their client is to ask powerful questions that help the client to look within themselves to find their own answers and the direction to take the next step. She says when we find our own answers it’s more empowering than when someone just tells us what to do.
“People are looking for something more in their life,” says Roberta. “More balance, more fulfillment, more success, more happiness. So coaching is about being honest and direct in a loving way. As their coach, I guide them to identify their strengths, to create a vision and figure out the steps to move toward that vision. I challenge them, acknowledge them, and encourage them as they go through the process.”

Gerry Goldstein is among the most respected criminal defense attorneys in the USA and has represented clients in many high-profile cases. In 1974, he defended a San Antonio theater operator charged with showing the film “Deep Throat”, a conviction he had reversed in Dexter v. Butler. He has helmed the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association and the NACDL. He is an outspoken critic of mandatory sentencing laws, officers who beat inmates or suspects, and what he calls the “warehousing of young African American males.” He fought for the exoneration of Michael Morton, who steadfastly proclaimed his innocence and was finally exonerated in 2011, leading to the disbarment, conviction, and imprisonment of Ken Anderson, who had prosecuted that case over 25 years before and since become a judge.
Robert Pickett has a different take on "independence." He was leaving a friend's house when officers received a burglary call describing two black men in Inglewood, and in responding, collided with, and killed, a girl crossing the street. When an officer arrived at the scene, he shot Mr. Pickett 9 times (his colleague, Darryl Lewis, was shot six times). The witnesses did not ID Mr. Pickett or Mr. Lewis. Still, they were charged, and held in Men’s Central Jail for 32 months while consistently proclaiming their innocence. A jury quickly acquitted them at trial. This year, Mr. Pickett will celebrate his independence with those he loves.
Sometimes, you think you're getting into one thing but find that you're actually in something you never wanted. Relationships are not always what they seem. Today, we talk to Marleshia Pickett, new author of the book, KNOCKED DOWN BY DECEPTION. She's going to share Riley's story of loving someone who loved men and writing inspiration.
Today we will discuss the Supreme Court decision in Riley v. California, and welcome Bronson James, the attorney who co-authored the brief submitted in Riley v. California on behalf of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. Prior to becoming a lawyer, Mr. James worked as a Data and Technology Privacy Engineer, and continues to consult on issues of data security and privacy. And continuing our coverage of the crisis at Men's Central Jail in Los Angeles -- whose conditions the Department of Justice has recently called "deplorable" -- we welcome Darryl Lewis and Robert Pickett, who were incarcerated at Men's Central Jail for 32 months prior to being acquitted at trial. The story of their arrest is as unfathomable as the conditions of their confinement.
Today, we get to sit down with author Marleshia Pickett, the author of KNOCKED DOWN BY DECEPTION. We're going to talk relationships and how to effectively write about them without alienating people who don't share our faith. Good stuff. You don't want to miss this show.
This show is dedicated to: Medal of Honor awardee First Lieutenant Alonzo H. Cushing was killed in action on July 3, 1863 -- at age 22 -- during the battle’s third and final day, in the face of Pickett’s Charge, a futile, deadly Confederate advance that threatened to turn the tide of the war.
Defending the Republic with Annie "The Radio Chick" and Dan, of Pundit Press Radio is an ongoing discussion of recent events, issues and the upcoming elections.
Special Guest: Reverend Keion Henderson of The Lighthouse Church has the fastest growing congregation in
Texas. The young Pastor is helping people connect with God daily by changing how people
perceive church using social media tools.
The Lighthouse church isn’t your grandma’s church. In fact, Pastor Keion Henderson is only 32
years old and already becoming a rising star in the new way church is perceived- online! Pastor
Henderson has the fastest growing congregation in Texas and he is quickly growing his online
“I wanted to do something different. I wanted to have a church that welcomed all and could
reach all. So, I went online. Don’t get me wrong, I love to have people in church every day but
that isn’t always possible. People work, people travel, some people aren’t mobile – my online
mission helps connect everyone to our church and God,”
It's a battle of Conservative values and principles in defense of our Republic!
Author Charles McNair has written Pickett's Charge, - essentially summarizing the history of the South through the blurry perspective of one old man, a character developed as the oldest living Confederate veteran. This man is hell-bent on heading north to kill the oldest living Yankee. But in the end, the book is really about reconciliation, redemption and forgiveness.
And especially now - 150 years after the war - this book helps demonstrate how much America has really changed and what it means to be America.
You know how HARD it is to describe terrific musicians that you've known for several years? Well - it IS! LOL! These incredible artists have thrilled crowds all over the WORLD - and they are both from the talent-rich Baltimore/Washington area.
Ray Gaskins will start the second hour of the show with his news - and there is ALWAYS news from Ray :) He has been touring with Roy Ayers - trust me, Roy keeps hims busy! But Ray has his own company, his own gigs and a life in Baltimore that has him on the run. We're glad to have him back in Charm City. For a few years, he was based in the United Kingdom, where love for Jazz seemed to be more profitable. Ray is truly loved there - and elsewhere around the globe. But he needed his "roots" again - and we needed HIM! That's how Phyllis Hyman felt about him, too. Ray spent time with the beloved Soul Superstar - and he worked with The Brand New Heavies, too. His discography speaks volumes - and we'll get to some tracks so you can HEAR the magic!
Elliot Levine is considered one of the Masters on keyboards. You spend a night at his various shows around the region and you clearly understand why. It's not just his technique and the swiftness of those fingers - but it's how he "zones" when he plays. You'll never see anyone like him. Like Ray, Elliot has a number of CDS that reflect his profound skill. Songwriting, too. His music has been featured on TBS, he has scored for an Emmy-nominated documentary, and has toured with the late Wilson Pickett - and STILL tours with Heatwave.
With how the Summer has been flying by, it's good to have our friends on NOW. There might be a time when we'll have a week or so without "Hybrid Jazz" - in our prep time for a Florida move. To have this chance is gold :-D Join us!
