We are restarting our blog-radio show, "Heroes of Katrina." Several years ago, we hosted the show under the generous support of Bonnie Kaye ("Books of Excellence"), who provided support for our efforts.
We are now restarting the show under a thematic of "Ten Years After." What are the heroes written about in the book, "Katrina: A Freight Train Screamin'" doing now? How have their lives changed. What is new and interesting for them?
All these questions are important, as Katrina changed many lives in many ways...As always we provide this show to exhibit a perspective of the resiliency of the human spirit.
As the winds of Katrina blew, lives were changed. People did what they had to do...and their stories reflect the power of human and perseverance and spirit.
What better than ten years later do we explore lives affected and re-equlibrated and re-reflected.
Please join us for an inspirational and reflective discussion on the human spirit as reflected by the changes of lives.
Debbie's believes that we can all make a difference in our communities and ultimately the world, if we were to share our journey's and our experiences with others. Debbie's greatest desire is to inspire others to overcome life issues and fulfill their purpose. Join Debbie every Tuesday at 8:30pm GMT. On the show this week Debbie will be sharing what it was like to have the opportunity to become an author and share some of her story of what it was like as a teenage mother. The book The Journey of a Teenage Mother is a collaborative book with 16 authors sharing their various stories. The idea for the book was created by LaShunda Leslie-Smith a former teenage mother. For more information about the book visit www.debbiemartingarcia.co.uk
I look forward to you joining me Debbie for more inspiration.
This week on Heroes of Katrina: Ten Years After, We are honored and pleased to have Bonnie Kaye come on the show as a host to interview Gretchen and I. Bonnie was the original patron of the Heroes of Katrina show we did several years ago. Without her support, wisdom, advise, and encouragement, the show would likely have never been, nor would be, now.
Cary met Bonnie through her efforts to support literally hundreds of independent authors who faced significant losses in revenue due to the fraudulant practices of Airleaf Publishing. Over the years she has become a close friend to both Cary and Gretchen.
We are excited to have Bonnie on as a host...this show brings us back around to where we started in 2010. So please join us Wednesday evening for a show where Cary and Gretchen give their "Then and Now" account and discuss new and upcoming projects with Bonnie Kaye.
TONIGHT ON CRUSH RADIO:

Book Review: The Teenage Liberation Handbook by Grace Lllewellyn
Six months after Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans celebrated Mardi Gras. The celebration in 2006 was as lively as ever, but smaller. There were four fewer days, six fewer carnival krewes and every parade had to use the same route......BUT laissez les bons temps rouler.....even history's most devastating natural disaster could not destroy the spirit of our community captured in the background photo of the world's largest and best free party. Join us during the height of the season as we chat about Mardi Gras immediately post-Katrina and then ten years later. Only in NOLA!!! Also, we have Valentines coming up on Saturday of next week...and nothing could be more appropriate than a show integrating Valentines Day with Mardis Gras fanfare.
This evening we have Vince Vance joining Cary and Gretchen the Wonder Girl for a reflective evening of looking at Mardi Gras and Valentines Day. We will be discussing the relationship between the two celebrations and sharing much of Vance's music...Join us for some fun!

When the winds of Katrina began to die down, the flood waters began to rise. For St. Bernard Parish, the flooding was nearly absolute. 99% of the structures had been flooded and destroyed. In some places 25 feet of water lapped up upon the rooftops.
St Bernard Parish is the only county in the history of the United States to have been nearly completely destroyed.
As of the census of 2000, there were 67,229 people (an increase of 598 or 0.9% over the previous decade), 25,123 households, and 18,289 families residing in the parish. The population density was 145 people per square mile (56/km²). There were 26,790 housing units at an average density of 58 per square mile (22/km²).
After Katrina, with an entire population reeling from the destruction, many evacuated. Those that remained waited for the waters to subside and began the long process of re-building.
For perspective, as of the census of 2010, there are 35,897 people. The community is still re-building 10 years later.
During the storm, the St Bernard Parish Fire and Sherriff's Department deployed to aid the community as the flood waters rose and remained.
Chief Thomas Stone is our special guest.
Chief Stone recently told us, "So much has occurred with the recovery and rebuilding of our departments, such as building new stations, replacing our apparatus, hiring and training new firefighters. Our departments have been to hell and we’re not back yet. We had a mass departure of senior officers in the years after Katrina, threat of layoffs of firefighters and all the red tape trying to rebuild. We have not even replaced all of our equipment lost through the Public Assistance Project Worksheet program 9 ½ years later".
Please join us for what promises to be a fascinating show about perseverance, reality, hopes, and dreams.
Listen in to the audio of our children's book which is a metaphor of a real life story of love, friendship, perseverance and everlasting bonds. Juba Kali narrates and Denise Thompson stars as Tori the caterpillar/butterfly.
The video entitled, “French Quarter Tori and the Red Owl” is an animation for the first book collaboration between Cary and Gretchen. The (as-of-yet) unreleased DVD also features Allie Moffet as Lebeau, the Corgi, from the Lower 9th Ward, Steven Wilson who holds the role of Kendall, the mighty owl from the Pacific North West, who guides these friends, and Juba Kali who performed magnificently as the narrator. A heartwarming story loved by children and adults…
Our guest, following the audio, will be Ms. Denise Thompson and she will share the tale of her thoughts and feelings on bringing the character of Tori to life. Denise is an accomplished actress, salon owner and hair artist, wonderful mother and all around talented woman with a glowing heart and inspirational philosopher on the beauty of daily life. We have extended invites to Allie, Steven, Juba, and Caroline (The book’s illustrator) to call in and join the conversation. You won't want to miss this show.
