Many moons ago - before the invention of Ritalin or the Internet - a young, broke college student named Roberto Antonio Smiley signed up for a stand-up competition at his Student Union Building. The prize money was $500, which was nearly 5 months rent for the "efficiency" closet Smiley was living in at the time. Though he had never stepped on a stage, and the only prior laughs he had gotten were due to his colossal leprechaun ears, he went for the gold. When he arrived, his only competition was a grown man wearing an oversized sombrero with no act... so... he won the money and the tender hearts of his fellow students. The rest is history.
Since that incredibly average performance, Roberto shortened his name to "Bob" and started a caffeine-induced tour spreading laughter and gaiety to the masses. As a novice jokester, Smiley honed his talents as the merch-managing MC for bands like Newsboys, Third Day, and Mercy Me. This exposure, along with the fact that his act had the word "booger" in it three times, led to a swarm of goatee'd youth leaders begging Smiley to come entertain their sugar-high kid herds. He was forced to match their manic energy and soon developed a machine gun approach to comedy. Sixteen years later, Bob is now one of the nation's most in-demand and hilarious clean comedians. And he absolutely loves his job, no matter how many times his father challenges its legitimacy as a career choice...

It was in December 1959 that Alvin Lee Johnson (born June 20, 1939) entered Cosimo Matassa’s recording studio. He emerged from the studio on Governor Nicholls Street with what would be a belated hit song and a new name, Al “Carnival Time” Johnson. Joe Ruffino produced the recording session for his Ric label and Carnival Time eventually joined Professor Longhair’s Go to the Mardi Gras and Big Chief, and the Hawkettes’ Mardi Gras Mambo as classics of the New Orleans Mardi Gras.
Johnson, like so many New Orleans musicians, grew up in the city’s Ninth Ward where he played trumpet and piano. Born in 1939, he was influenced early on by Sugar Boy Crawford, Fats Domino, and Smiley Lewis.
Alvin Johnson, best known for his famous song, "Carnival Time," has been a New Orleans Mardi Gras icon for over 40 years. A Rhythm & Blues performer, Al is a New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival veteran and has worked with the likes of Aaron Neville, Oliver Morgan, Bobby Lonero as well as (the late Tommy Ridgley, Jessie Hill, Bobby Mitchell, Eddie Bo & Ernie K-Doe)
Al has performed on the "Louisiana Jukebox" TV program and been the star of a highly successful Louisiana Lottery Mardi Gras campaign. Al has also been the subject of numerous articles in Mardi Gras Guide, New Orleans Magazine, Offbeat Magazine, The Louisiana Weekly, The Times Picayune, and Gambit Weekly.
Also on the show, we have an amazing local New Orleans team...."Dave and Rose"...these fine local musicians will share their music and perspective regarding the 10 years after Katrina... Please join us for a fest of great music and perspective from NOLA musicians...
Today I am going to play a show I broadcasted on Blog Talk Radio April 17, 2009 this was my second month of being a Radio Show Host on BTR. I started out with a show called Smiley Room. The show was intended to lighten up and bring in some laughter and some inspiration along with some feel good music.
This month on Purpose Living Radio, we are ALLLL about celebrating our mothers! The twist is, we are celebrating those who are living on PURPOSE! These mothers not only take the joy of being a mother seriously, but also are ready to conquer whatever to be their own boss. They aren't playing games!
This week we have the pleasure of speaking with Donna Hicks Izzard. Donna Hicks Izzard is best known as “Chief Identity Influencer” and is the creator of the innovative The 3W Life training workshops that teach individuals the importance of reclaiming their IDENTITY to be successful in their personal and professional lives. Individuals learn WHOSE they are, WHO they are and WHY they are here. The 3W Life workshops empower individuals who are broken, stuck, stagnant and invite them to participate in their own rescue by regaining confidence and understanding their worth.
Donna has authored two books, “Reclaiming Your Identity” and Walking in God’s Master Plan. She is a featured contributor in the “I AM AMERICA” cookbook along with Chef Jeff and Tavis Smiley.
Many call Donna a “dynamo” because she seems to be constantly in motion and can often be found anywhere people need inspiration and motivation. She, along with former “White House Ambassador” Susan D. Johnson Cook, as her business manager, developed a strategy to touch as many lives as possible and they did this by having Donna take advantage of all of her varied activities to spread her positive message of hope and inspiration to individuals in business and women in ministry.
Those who turn to Donna Izzard quickly learn that their identity is their platform. When you know who you are and what you can do. THERE IS NOTHING THAT can stop you!

Jane and Jon discuss world upheaval in places like Thailand and Myrnamar where 6,000 refugees are trapped on a boat, being exploited by human traffickers who are trying to make money off of refugees by impounding funds from family members.
They also discuss how the urban streets have changed or stayed the same since 1968 in Baltimore with commentary by Tavis Smiley from Time Magazine.
We had a caller, Citizen X, who tried to inflect that it's each man for himself, not the government. He denounces labels but is short on explanations.
Later on, Jane & Jon discuss Pam Grier, Rosie Grier and Blacploitation films such as Foxy Brown, Coffey and more from that era.
Brothers Mark and Eric Harris get their chat game on strong. Bringing up tough issues that many are afraid to discuss. And this is not chat-ROOM, but the chat room is open. The HARRIS gang speak on racial divide, racial tension, but they keep it on the real. If you want a great example of intelligence and hip-hop, clever but cool, the whole scenerio. You want to have fun, but you don't want ignorance and these HARRIS BOYS come correct. 347-205-9366 to connect with them and talk some true talk.
THEN GET YOUR SMILEY FACE ON - There probably isn't a emoticon made that can give you the FULL DESCRIP of these fellows. Thank God they are no BILL COSBY. Did you see that NON ANSWER he gave, after the question was asked about those accusations? We are no further closer to his side of the story yet - Probably too much pudding. But these guys are all beef since they got rid of the cat they use to have on the show. CAT because we can't say - willow. 347-205-9366. R U READY????

I have long called February LOVE MONTH! There is something about that Hallmark Holiday, Valentine's Day that I feel very fond of. Anytime where love becomes the focus, our hearts become the focus and people are drawn closer to each other, I'm all in!
What do you think about when you think about love? I think of God. I think of family & friends. I think of my favorite episodes of the Golden Girls! We probably all think of different things. But tell me this, do you ever think about how you do or don't show love to yourself? How do you think about yourself? What thoughts do you hold? What behaviors do you show? I want to talk about it. Join me today on The Smiley Notes.
Noree Victoria, Baltimore, Maryland native, has been active in the creative arts her entire life. Starting out writing imaginative short stories and plays, she completed her first bound children’s book at the age of 7. Loving the arts and academics, during her middle school years, she used creative and intellectual outlets to escape her sometimes-challenging upbringing in Baltimore, opting to spend summers in special programs on college campuses studying drama, creative writing, and painting with the help of government subsidized grants and academic scholarships. At the age of 16, once again longing for a life beyond the borders of her home city, she petitioned her school board on her own and successfully won their approval to bypass her senior year, and go directly on to college, earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Creative Writing and Biology, and subsequently a Master’s Degree in Information Technology. Noree completed her Master’s program with a 4.0 GPA. However, coming from an entertainment family with modest means-- kin to the late jazz musician Eubie Blake, and sister to Emmy nominated actress Penny Jerald-- the lure of acting proved way too overpowering for her to neglect. After completion of her academic studies, she stepped out on faith to pursue her creative passions in the performing arts full time, gaining recognition by winning the Best Actress award at AMTC’s Shine, a nation-wide talent competition drawing over 2000 contestants each year. After being discovered at AMTC, Noree was contacted by the New York Conservatory for the Dramatic Arts and offered a scholarship to study under the direction of some of the most esteemed instructors in the business, taking on Scene Study, Advanced Film Combat, Voice-over, Michael Chekhov technique and Shakespeare Presentation.
