Please join host Frankie PIcasso on August 6th at 1:00 pm EDT when her guest is Ian Northcott, an ex armed servicemen and policeman from Birmingham, England aka The Busking Bobby!
in 2010, Ian founded the charity Sock n Chocs, an initiative meant to provide some comforts to the Homeless in Birmingham.
In order to keep his charity managable for all involved, Ian's plan was to have " a lot of people doing a little bit"!
Together, they collect sleeping bags, underwear, socks and chocolates of course as well as some other items that go directly to homeless shelters and/or other agencies.
One day while Ian was on the beat , he came across a couple of buskers he knew performing downtown. In an impromtu decision, Ian grabbed a guitar and started performing the song Wonderwall by Oasis. One of the onlookers too a video of the event and it went viral. To date, there have been over one million views.
Never did Ian contemplate that as a result of his 'act' Sock n Chocs would be so favourably impacted. Says Ian, "Following the video we got donations from as far away as Japan and Turkey, so it was worth enduring some of the banter as if nothing else it really raised the profile for the charitable work I’m devoted to.”
Also as a result of this surge in his charity work, Ian was awarded a Point of Light community award by the Prime Minister of England.
To Date: Socks N Chocs has distributed 3814 pairs of socks and 1933 bars of chocs! 233 Sleeping bags and 1233 miscellaneous items. GO Socks n Chocs

I was not born to be President. I did not grow up thinking about being President. I did not live for being President. THEN it HAPPENED, 1000s of Americans were dead and 1000s of our Soldiers were being injured and killed. I could not take it no more and so i set out on BLOG TALK RADIO and how it happened was a miracle, at least to me - it was a day in my life when a path to the WHITE HOUSE was granted. Not the winning of the WHITE HOUSE, but a chance for it. Ask me about it and see how the Lord or Karma or Fate moves in mysterious fashions and ways. Now is a chance to heal, better ourselves and gain respect and a new quality of life. I am all for it. I have no great resume or work experience. i have been out of full time employment for over 26 years. Some of it was my fault for not signing off on receipt of a shipment of contaminated raw materials and not firing a simple person for wearing his smelly socks that he put back on after going through ponds to retrieve newspaper bundles tossed there by cheating carriers. Some of it was my fault for discovering check kite'ng and tellingmy supervisor about it, who just happened to be in on it, and not staying with McDonalds for being told to wash the French Fries grills with cold water and you can't do it and so i didn't - grease doesn't wash off in soapy cold water. And then there was the time, Friday pay day when I was told by RET to charge my time to clients accounts when i didn't work and clients accounts. I should have gone to the newspapers - but who was i and i would be branded a liar,, Now I gave a chance to right so many wrongs in our Country and the World and drown Politics with fair minded people. Help me...
