    Suspense, crime fiction author Earl Javorsky (Dan Howard) LIVE on Authors

    in Books

    “Earl Javorsky's bold and unusual DOWN SOLO blends the mysterious and the supernatural boldly and successfully. The novel is strong and haunting, a wonderful debut.”  – T. Jefferson Parker, New York Times bestselling author of FULL MEASURE and THE FAMOUS AND THE DEAD.


    Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes suspense and crime fiction writer Earl Javorsky (also known as Dan Howard).  I have to agree with Jeff Parker and say that Dan's books are powerfully intense and immeasurably enjoyable. Here is a little more about "Earl" (and he promises to explain the pen name). " I was born in Berlin and emigrated to the US when I was two. My father had been an aerial photographer under Rommel in North Africa and worked as a cinematographer in NYC. My mother remarried when I was five and we were off to Hollywood, where my step-father had a contract with Paramount. Oddly, he had been a lieutenant in the US Navy off the coast of Italy.   I was a weird kid and made the appropriate adjustments.  After a long stint trying to make it as a musician in LA and clawing my way up to mid-level management in the chemical entertainment industry (just about killed me), I went back to my first love: writing. I had the good fortune to run into Lou Aronica, my editor at The Story Plant. I work as a proofreader/edito"r (www.theproofreader.org).

    in Entertainment

    Born in Miami Beach to Peruvian and Finish Parents and now living in Chicago IL,  she captivates her audiences with the fusion of different cultures and genres in a avate garde experience. DELILAH~LATINA PRINCESS music is a mash up of EDM, LATIN, DANCE  and TECHNO.  Best put in her own words:  “My father was a musician and song writer, but passed away when I was 9. My mother remarried to a Puerto Rican man I would say that is where I got my influences from. Every weekend , we would be dancing at some club to ole School Mexican, or salsa, or Meringue, shoving delicious Puerto Rican food in our mouths that his mom used to make for us in Humboldt Park. Almost every day, I would listen to Chilean woman sing," Ay carino mio" its the only song I remember, but I know I would love the whole album. My cousin through marriage was Bobby Rosa. Who later became one of the singers in the band "Menudo". Later my step father would become their manager. I love writing songs. That talent I appreciate from my father” 


     


    Gene Robinson Biography in his own wordsI was a very angry man most of my life due to lies I had been told about who I really was all the time I was growing up.  This left me a dysfunctional adult who was angry night and day.  No mater how bad I want to change and listened to the Masters of Positive thinking each one for 90 days so it would become party of me, I was unable to make any changes to break my chains as they never gave me anything I could do myself to help change my reality.

    Sacred Sunday~Romans 7/Out with the Old Law/In with the New

    in Spirituality

    Good morning church! Join us as we have our weekly Bible study! Romans Chapter 7.


    Paul goes on to talk more about the role of Jewish law. He says that the law only applies to people who are alive, but that Christians are dead to the world and dead to the law. Thus, they don't have to obey all those fussy rules anymore. Sweet! It's kind of like when a man and woman get married—they have to stay faithful to each other. But if the husband dies, all bets are off. Now the wife can remarry and it's a-okay with everyone. Plus, she gets double wedding presents. Basically, Paul's saying that because of Jesus, Jewish law is dead. Christians have remarried and belong with God now. He's their dream guy. Before all that, we were slaves to the law and sin, but now we're free to run barefoot in a meadow with the Holy Spirit. How exhilarating. Now, wait just a second, Paul… it sounds like you're saying Jewish law is sinful. Oh no, Paul explains. You're misunderstanding!  The law isn't sinful, but it does point out all kinds of sin to us… making that sin look oh-so delicious. See, if no one had ever said, "Don't steal stuff," would we have even thought of stealing? Um, Paul, you're losing us. Look, the law is good, Paul says. Don't get him wrong. It's doing its best, but really it can't hold a candle to the power of sin. Ooooh, what's the power of sin? Well, it just means that sin has major pull over people. We may try to follow the law and do good things, but we just keep getting drawn back towards doing bad things. Blame it on the sin. See, we're just weak, sad little mortal beings who can't help but do bad things. And sin usually looks pretty good to us. But the good news is, there's someone who can get us off this crazy merry-go-round of sin. You guessed it—it's Jesus! It's always Jesus. Thanks to Shmoop.com

    Voices of South Africa with Don

    in Politics Conservative

    They say by middle age you should have settled down and have gone around the block a few times, repeating the same year every year. For me it has been more a case of getting up on the block and falling off it or finding another one again and again and thus having 30 different years over the past 3 decades. This has given me a unique insight.


    Born in Benoni near Johannesburg back in the 60’s my mother, a single parent with 3 boys, was hard at work finding a replacement father, while we were fed by family, friends and church. We brought ourselves up playing in the fields, streets and dams of the greater residential area, something you could do quite safely then. Although Afrikaans, we were sent to English school which was walking distance as there was no money for bus fare to the Afrikaans school. In those days of Eurocentricity it was considered a wise thing by some.


    I discovered what steak was at age 14 when my Mother remarried, and saw TV for the first time as television was introduced into SA despite Apartheid’s best efforts. We moved to the Cape and after high school, I had to do my compulsory military service as there was no money for further studies.  University was not free in Apartheid SA and cost the price of a house then.


    Like most of us, the two years in the army was bittersweet. You’re glad you had the experience but would have preferred not to even though you knew it was good for you. I spent three quarters of it up on the border (South West Africa and Angola), driving tanker trucks with aviation fuel and diesel to wherever the helicopters and tanks needed them.


    Back in civvy street the only choice was to get a job to pay rent and buy food. There was no safety net or grants in Apartheid SA. By age 23 I was awarded a Singer Franchise which was shortlived as the local monopoly supermarket chain decided to enter that market too and I became another small business destroyed by big business.

    MELBA MOORE - EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW -WED, JAN 21, 2015 - 4:00 pm PST

    in Radio

    Beatrice Melba Hill[1] (born October 29, 1945), best known by her stage name, Melba Moore is an American singer, actress, entertainer. She is the daughter of saxophonist Teddy Hill and R&B singer Bonnie Davis.


    Melba Moore was born in 1945 in New York City, New York, to Gertrude Melba Smith (known professionally as Bonnie Davis) and Teddy Hill, and raised in Harlem, New York, until she was 9 and her divorced mother remarried jazz pianist Clement Leroy Moorman. She attended Newark Arts High School in Newark, New Jersey.Her mother, Bonnie Davis, had a No. 1 R&B hit with "Don't Stop Now", prior to Melba's birth. Although her biological father was Big Band leader and saxophonist Teddy Hill, it was her stepfather Moorman (who played on "Don't Stop Now") who became a prime influence and encouragement in Moore's musical pursuits, insisting that she learn to play the piano. When she graduated from college she worked as a music teacher, but she soon decided to pursue the spotlight. She chose her stage name by shortening her stepfather's surname from Moorman and using her middle name, "Melba".


    Moore began her performing career in 1967 as Dionne in the original cast of the musical Hair along with Ronnie Dyson and Diane Keaton. Moore replaced Keaton in the role of Sheila. In 1970, she won a Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Musical for her portrayal of Lutiebelle in Purlie. She would not return to Broadway until 1978 when she appeared (as Marsinah) with Eartha Kitt in Timbuktu! but left the show after a few weeks and was replaced by Vanessa Shaw. Following the success of Purlie, Moore landed two big-screen film roles, released two successful albums, 1970's I Got Love and Look What You're Doing to the Man, and co-starred with actor Clifton Davis in the then-couple's own successful variety television series in 1972.
