SORT BY Relevancy
SYNOPSIS: Betty Tucker came of age in Belle Glade, Florida, infamous for its poverty and violence (e.g., see the Wikipedia entry and the 2006 documentary One Percent). Her childhood was one of debilitating poverty, borne of racism: exploitive migrant labor, multiple rapes and other abuse, chronic illness among her family and acquaintances ... the list is long and bitter. Betty survived not only by sheer hard work but also by nurturing a nascent belief that she deserved better. She moved to California, earned her college degree, and raised a family. Then, in 1997, she began a long and eventually successful search for the twin girls she had given up for adoption thirty years earlier.
AUTHOR BIO: A native of Troy, Alabama, Betty Tucker has a degree in behavioral science from the University of San Francisco. She also has a Clear Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. She worked for nineteen years with the U.S. Postal Service and for nineteen years with the San Francisco Unified School District. She has five children and four grandchildren and now lives in Richmond, California, and in Montgomery, Alabama. Thank you for your consideration.
Fear, insecurity, sexual abuse, want, neglect: This memoir will look beyond the description of these difficulties in the author's life to examine how they stifled her ability to shape her own life, how she acquired the tools she needed to take more control of her life, and what impact her choices, both intentional and unintentional, had on her life and those of her children.
On August 19, 2014, RevKess got to sit down at the KZUM studios and talk with SJ Tucker and Betsy Tinney. Both ladies are truly magickal beings and they were in Lincoln, NE to bring their special kind of musical magick to an audience at the historic Feguson House. Earlier in the day they met with RevKess to talk about their music, their lives, and share of themselves with listeners of Murphy's Magic Mess on KZUM - and with the PMPChannel listeners.
August 24 heard the first part of this conversation on the Mess. The second segment, split into two parts, was heard on September 7. For your listening enjoyment is the entire interview and a selection of music. The music is slightly different from that heard on the Mess.

In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer talks to special guest, Linda Tucker, CEO and President of The Global White Lion Protection Trust. Linda recently published her second best-selling book, Saving the White Lions- One Womans Battle for Africas Most Sacred Animal which is a heart-warming story about her personal journey to save South Africa's rapidly diminishing white lion population as well as her mission to globally ban canned hunting. Canned hunting facilities offer customers the opportunity to kill exotic and native animals trapped within enclosures. Canned hunting is actually frowned upon and not supported by most hunters. Yet, there are some people who will pay a great deal of money to kill animals in canned hunts. Please help Linda Tucker ban canned hunts by signing the petition on Avaaz.org. You can also find it on WhiteLions.org. Today's show is brought to you by Eden Foods the most trusted name in certified organic clean food!

The KUDZOO Radio Hour is pleased to welcome guitarist/singer/songwriter Tucker Yochim to the show. Tucker is the leader of the Sid Yochim Band, a group with blood ties to southern rock.

Also on the program, country rockers Dixie Still from Gastonia, NC, a band that is on their way to the top, with great vocals, great songs and a real feel good sound. From their southern gospel roots and through several changes, the trio has evolved into a Nashville powderkeg that is set to explode! Y'all join us! Call ins are welcome!
