    The King of DC Media (KODCM), Willam Powell, welcomes actor extraordinaire Adiyb Muhammad, who the KODCM has dubbed "The Theater Warrior", back to the Inside Acting Radio Show to talk about his white hot career.

By Play wrights Damon Sanders/Ivy Hawkins and August Wilson. I feel truly blessed because as an actor when I read these parts they all offered different and unique opportunities to create very different characters. I love film but my first love is truly theater it makes you delve deep into your skills on a very in-depth level. No retakes, no editing just raw unadulterated work. Memorization of lines a must and character development an absolute necessity and intense commitment to be successful. 10 years and counting!!!

    The Late Late Shift with Steven - Episode 24 (The Wolverine on Crack Edition)

    in Entertainment

    How much would it weird you out if you had a pet that made the sound we attribute to them? Like a cat that literally goes "meow" or a dog that says "bark" or "woof" and stuff? Or a lizard that goes...


    What the hell do lizards say? Do they hiss or something, like alligators? Do they even make sound? I've never known a lizard well enough to hear what the little dude has to say. I'm kinda sad about that now.


    This show will not be about lizards or animal sounds. Probably. Could be, but it's not terribly likely. What will it be about? Hell if I know. We'll see when we go live.


    I hope you'll join me for the ride. Should be fun.

    The Late Late Shift with Steven - Episode 22 (The Listener Q&A Edition)

    in Entertainment

    How cool would it be to be Spider-Man? To do whatever a spider can? I wonder how literal that is? I mean, is dude ever trying to squeeze out a deuce and suddenly coat his toilet bowl with gross ass webbing? Would webbing clog up one's toilet? How the hell would you explain that to a plumber? 


    This episode will not be about the potential perils of pooping as Spider-Man. It very well may be about the hidden subculture of superhero plumbers, though. 


    Probably not. No telling what it'll be about, to be honest. That's what makes it fun. I hope you'll join me.

He produced, wrote, and directed 4 annual cabaret benefits for The Center at St. Anselm’s Church in Wayside, NJ, and these shows helped raise tens of thousands of dollars. Cabaret for Life was established in September 1995 by a core group of Monmouth and Ocean County residents. CFL has cooperated with Broadway artists like Stephen Sondheim, Jerry Herman, Charles Strouse, Alan Menken, Stephen Schwartz, and others. Each of these professionals has donated the rights to their work to CFL free of charge. Andrew DePrisco has served as president of CFL since its inception and has produced and/or directed every major show including such favorites as Hairspray, Ragtime, Swinging on a Star, Cabaret Goes to Hollywood, A Century of Broadway, elegies for angels, punks and raging queens, and all three seasons of Gay and Be Glitter, and Housewives of Monmouth County.

    The Late Late Shift with Steve - Episode 23 (The Self Incriminating Edition)

    in Entertainment

    These shows rarely have a topic or theme set up beforehand, but this one will be an exception. I was asked a question loosely related to Insane Clown Posse for my last episode, the Listener Q&A one, and intended to tell a sordid loosely ICP related tale. I ran out of time, though, as the story is too good to skim over. 


    So I won't. It's getting its own episode, and a special weekend one, at that. It involves misdemeanor crime, Juggalos and comics, among other things. I hope I can do it justice in telling it, as it's one of my favorite stories in my head.


    So yeah, join me as I potentially incriminate the crap out of myself and tell my tale. Should be fun stuff.

    The Late Late Shift with Steven - Episode 21 (The Spidey's a Cracker Edition)

    in Entertainment

    If ghosts are real, I wonder what they do with all that free time? Can they go other places? Like, do they have to haunt their specific house or can they go to Vegas and catch a show? Or is it like Beetlejuice where they're tied to one specific place and that's it? Can they see other ghosts, maybe hang out in the Netherworld and play cards with Mark Twain or something? Or is it really as simple as, "Well, I'm just gonna hang out in here for all eternity. Yippee. Hooray. I hope the new people who live here like Metallica."



    This episode will not be about ghosts. Or maybe it will. Who really knows? I definitely don't, and I'm the host. That means you, the listener, should pretty much expect anything to go down. Kinda fun, ain't it?



    I like to think so, and I hope you agree. Join me, won't you?

    The Late Late Shift with Steven - Episode 20 (The General Lee Edition)

    in Entertainment

    My dreams are dead. 


    Why do I say that? Because my biggest dream was always to own a record store, like Empire Records. And one corner would have a soundproof booth from which a live radio broadcast would be happening. People could tune in to badass tunes and then come down to the store and make a request whilst buying badass tunes. I envisioned this dream so thoroughly that I even drew up floorplans and worked up how much it would cost and stuff.


    Now? Record stores are as archaic as an Atari 2600. Cute, still out there, but pretty much only a piece of a shell of what they were. Terrestrial radio? So watered down and corporate and devoid of any semblance of life that it's frankly depressing, not to mention also archaic within the modern landscape. 


    Is that what this show will be about? Nope. No clue what it'll be about. But I bet it'll be fun. Join me and find out.

    LOTL The Comfort Zone Welcomes Lindsey Webster, debuts new CD " You Change "


    NEW YORK (June 17, 2015) Do you remember that moment when you first heard Anita Baker or Sade; the effortless, sultry, and soaring vocal that captures all of your attention? Lindsey Webster’s delicate and powerful voice takes you to that place - an unabashed nod to the greats and yet 100 percent Lindsey. The Soul Songstress is proud to announce the release of her sophomore album, You Change, via Atlanta Records on July 17. The album is an eloquent collection of work showcasing Webster’s expressive vocals and uncanny talent and the two lead singles “Fool Me Once” and “Open Up” are out now and available to stream HERE. “"You Change” shows the growth we’ve made as artists since our first album; in both our songwriting and who we are as artists. From a delicate song like “Bleed”, a song about utter heartbreak, to an anthem like “I’m Strong”, we explore many facets of our songwriting and are extremely happy with the result”, states Webster. 


    In 2009, Lindsey met her partner, Keith Slattery, and started performing professionally. Together, with a band of world-class musicians, they’ve performed over 600 shows in venues including Bearsville Theater, Levon Helm Studios, Helsinki Hudson, Daryl’s House, The Falcon, The Lambs Club, Rockwood Music Hall, The Red Lion, and Groove. 


    The success of her first album and winning “Best Acoustic Song” in the Independent Music Awards caught the eye of Brian Hurst from UK’s soulandjazz.com. Hurst brought Webster to Atlanta Records, who signed her to release her second album, You Change.
