Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910),better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. He wrote The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), the latter often called "The Great American Novel."
Twain grew up in Hannibal, Missouri, which provided the setting for Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer. After an apprenticeship with a printer, he worked as a typesetter and contributed articles to the newspaper of his older brother, Orion Clemens. He later became a riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River before heading west to join Orion in Nevada. He referred humorously to his singular lack of success at mining, turning to journalism for the Virginia City Territorial Enterprise. In 1865, his humorous story, "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County", was published, based on a story he heard at Angels Hotel in Angels Camp, California, where he had spent some time as a miner. The short story brought international attention, and translated into classic Greek. His wit and satire, in prose and in speech, earned praise from critics and peers, and he was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty.
This week’s segment is dedicated towards the life of writer and humorist Mark Twain, best known for his works “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” and “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.”

Vs. 33. He went in therefore and shut the door upon them twain, and prayed unto the LORD.
Vs. 34. And he went up, and lay upon the child, and put his mouth upon his mouth, and his eyes upon his eyes, and his hands upon his hands: and he streached himself upon the child: and the flesh of he child waxed warm.
Vs. 35. Then he returned, and walked in the house to and fro; and went up, and streached himself upon him: and he child sneezed seven times, and the child opened his eyes.
Vs. 36. And he called Gehazi, and said, Call the Shunammite. So he called her. And when she was come in to him, he said take up thy son.
Vs. 37. Then she went in and fell at his feet, and bowed herself to the ground, and took up her son, and went out.
Mark Twain..."AGE is a matter of the mind, if you don't mind, it doesn't matter!"
America has a strangle hold on YOUTH! Ah, the power of the media. Hey, grasshoppers, age 60 and beyond are SHAPING THE WORLD!
Did you know that America's aging population and youth-focused culture translates into huge profits for the Service/Beauty and Skin Care Industry. Global spending on anti-aging products exceed $300 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR and the U.S. accounts for approximately one-third of total dollars spent and the spending is growing!
We're a youth obsessed nation...etc.
A new era is emerging...etc.
What to expect from our bodies as we age...etc.
Stop talking about your chronological age...etc.
You can be an AGELESS GODDESS & ADONIS...etc.
MIKE DENNEY is President of MDM Recordings Inc., an independent recording company founded in 2008 and located in Toronto. One of his biggest dreams for his artists is to help enhance their success by securing them international recognition, and he has made this goal a priority. “My mission is to support, help nurture and grow the careers of the numerous artists that I work with on a day in and day out basis. I want to help them achieve their goals and dreams, while achieving mine with theirs.”
A 25 year veteran of the music industry, Mike believes that being passionate and success-driven about music (or anything that you do) supersedes wanting a large pay check and material advances. “I have always been very driven to succeed. Years ago it was material things, now it’s a passion for what I do.”
What he looks for in new artists is simple, “I want to represent talent that can really play and perform from their core, their true soul,” he explains. “I want artists that are hard-working and driven by the music, inspired to constantly perfect their craft. To me this is the true definition of talent.”
Announced in July 2015, in a country-wide reveal, 2015 marks another outstanding year for MDM Recordings and its artists, with a total of sixteen CCMA nominations, across 15 categories.
Substantiating her claim to the modern day Shania Twain status, Jess Moskaluke (an MDM artist and current CCMA Female Artist of the Year) continues her success streak with 2015 CCMA Female Artist of the Year, Album of the Year and Single of the Year nominations.
Tune in to hear Mike chat with about all the latest news in the MDM world!
Join us this week as we welcome the pop rock band, Starling Glow. The LA based band fronted by Liz Hill, has just released their brand new single “Caution Tape,” which comes off their debut EP. Liz Anne Hill took about 15 years and a few busted romances to create the songs that make up her band Starling Glow’s self-titled debut album, a blend of modern pop musical styles that ranges from pop/rock to dance and indie. Grammy nominated producer, songwriter, and musician Billy Mohler, one time member of L.A. band The Calling, who has also played or worked with Smashing Pumpkins, Macy Gray, Liz Phair, Kelly Clarkson, AWOLNation and skateboard pro Tony Hawk was hired to produce the record and immediately recognized the fellow Orange County native’s talent. The record was just released this past March through the newly formed Indie Label Trailblaze Music Group, where Mohler is General Manger. A multi-instrumentalist, Hill grew up in Orange County surrounded by music. Her mom played piano, her dad guitar and older sister piano, pipe organ and drums, while they all sang. Her earliest musical influences include blues/country artists like Bonnie Raitt, Shania Twain and Dolly Parton, while learning to play Jimi Hendrix and Steely Dan songs on bass. We will talk to Starling Glow about their upcoming schedule, get a behind the scenes look at their music, feature their latest songs, and ask them to share their message for the troops. Please be sure to visit Starling Glow at http://www.starlingglow.com/ and spread the word. Fans are welcome to call in and speak live with them during the show (718) 766-4193. If you would like to participate in the live chat during the show, you must sign up on the show site first and then log in during the show. As always we will give shout outs to our deployed military listeners. Our message to the troops: WE do what we do, because YOU do what you do.
It’s playoff time.
Hi, everyone. It is Sunday January 5, 2014 – coming to you from Sunset Beach, North Carolina.
We’ll run down all 4 games – yesterday’s two games and today’s 2 remaining wildcard games -- and how Mark Twain fits in – along with the possibility that NFL fans are soft – or broke. Does our economy have a tie-in to the threatened black-outs of 3 wildcard games?
And we will also look at all these issues:
The next coaches to be hired and fired.
The Bears signing Jay Cutler to an eye-popping deal.
Why a dopey NFL rule keeps the Steelers out of the playoffs.
And, we’ll talk some college ball: Charlie Strong, the national championship, and Tebow going to the broadcast booth.
We’re in the middle of wildcard weekend -- with my man Boychic, or as you know him -- our Informed Not Inflamed Football Insider -- Eric Snyder. He’s on the Power Hour with J T The Brick and Paulie on 920 AM in Vegas. He comes to us from the gambling capital of the world.
In the first part of the show, Benjamin Hedin will talk about his timely book, In Search of the Movement: The Struggle for Civil Rights Then and Now.
In the second part of the show, Sr. Stephany Rose, author of Abolishing White Maculinity from Mark Twain to Hip Hop:Crisis in Whiteness will talk about white supremacy in the aftermath of the Charleston chrurch murders.
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?
What does great fudge, the world’s longest porch, U.S. presidents and Hollywood have in common? Mackinac Island.
World Footprints will take you on a journey to a little known crown jewel that sits in Lake Huron between Michigan’s Upper and Lower Peninsulas –Mackinac Island (pronounced “Mack –in-aw”). The island was named by Native Americans who said that the island resembled a turtle. They gave it the name "Mitchimakinak" meaning "big turtle". The British later shortened the name to Mackinac.
Today’s show explores the island’s rich history and how that is being preserved as a National Historic Landmark. Mackinac Island was key in two battles during the War of 1812 but in the late 19th century, it became a popular summer colony. The island still maintains its old world charm and is known for its variety of architectural styles, including the famous Victorian-style Grand Hotel; fudge; and its ban on almost all motor vehicles. (Golf carts are allowed but only on the golf course.)
Hollywood discovered the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island and it was the setting of two feature films: This Time for Keeps (1946) and Somewhere in Time (1979). Mackinac Island has been written about and visited by many influential writers including Mark Twain and Henry David Thoreau.
As we'lll hear, U.S. Presidents and politicians have enjoyed respites on Mackinac Island. The Grand Hotel has honored these visits by designing some staterooms with the assistance of a few former First Ladies.&nb
