    Changing the World One Youth at a Time with Spider Jones

    in Self Help

    Spider Jones is an energetic advocate of the 'Believe To Achieve' Organization, a youth outreach development and counseling charity. Many of Spider's events go to the benefit of 'Believe To Achieve' kids.

    Spider is also a highly popular motivational speaker who is much admired for his diligent work among the youth. His inspirational life story "Out of the Darkness" reveals his amazing rise from the impoverished, gang infested, inner-city projects of Detroit and Windsor and how, as a grade five dropout, he eventually returned to school at the age of thirty to become an honour student. Spider's favourite thing is talking to his Nighthawks, whether it be about sports, entertainment, or hot issues.

    Over the past 20 years, Spider has interviewed such notables as Muhammad Ali, Mark Wahlberg, Jesse Jackson, LL Cool J, Ron Howard, Scott Grimes, Doug Gilmour, Cito Gaston, Oscar De La Hoya, Roy Jones, Kris Kristofferson, James Brown, Guy Lafleur, Carlos Delgado, Jim Brown and countless others. Among his other claims to fame was to act as a sparring partner for such boxing legends as George Chuvalo and former World Heavyweight Champion Jimmy Ellis. Spider was also a member of Muhammad Ali's training camp back in the days when 'The Greatest' fought Chuvalo.

    Harpdog Brown, The Nighthawks & Rick Holmstrom On The Couch

    in Music

    Harpdog Brown was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, started playing Blues in 1981 and never looked back.
    He has shared the stage with such greats as Matt “Guitar” Murphy, Pinetop Perkins, Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne and others.
    In 1994, Harpdog won the prestigious Muddy Award – the only Canadian to receive this honor - and in 1995 was nominated for a Juno Award for Best Blues Album, Home Is Where the Harp Is.
    I will sit with Harpdog and discuss his career and music.
    The Nighthawks current lineup is; Mark Wenner: Vocals, Harmonica, Johnny Castle: Vocals, Bass, Paul Bell: Guitar
    and Mark Stutso: Drums, Vocals.
    Formed in 1972 by Wenner, The Nighthawks have been making great music ever since.  The lineup may have changed, but the Nighthawks are about Blues & Rock and having fun.
    In 2011, their album Last Train To Bluesville won the Acoustic Album of the Year at the BMAs.
    Now the band has released Damn Good Time and we will chat with Mark about the 40 years of music and the new album.
    Rick Holmstrom grew up in Fairbanks, Alaska, surrounded by the sounds of 50's rock, 60's surf, folk, and the Beatles.
    Since he found the guitar in 1986, Rick has been playing almost constantly, experimenting with his sound - and at time losing fans - to develope his own sound.
    For the last three years he and his band have also backed up the great Mavis Staples.
    Now Rick has released Cruel Sunrise, another step in his journey.
    Rick and I will chat about his life and listen to tunes from the album.
