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.
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.

Tucker and his band bring a fresh approach to the music while keeping the memory of real Southern rock alive! .... 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! Join the chat room during the show!

Author William Tucker visits "The REALLY, Real, Deal" about how marriage built civilization as documented in his new book, “Marriage and Civilization”. Find out if the threat of the collapse of marriage in our society today could lead to our nation's downfall? Tucker examines how the history of the human race, demonstrating a pattern of life-long, monogamous pairings, has empowered us to build modern civilization. Drawing extensively on biological, anthropological, and historical evidence, Tucker reveals that marriage is not only a desirable institution for societies, but it’s actually the bedrock of civilization, and touches on America’s current marriage crisis and the factors that have led to the decline of marriage; the dramatic rise of divorce; and the epidemic of single parenthood. Tucker also offers bold predictions about what could happen to American society if marriage collapses entirely. Join this insightful conversation and be sure to share it with a friend.
