    NFL Playoffs Wild Card Weekend: Mark Twain and 49ers; Steelers screwed

    in News

    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.

    Forgive Before Moving Forward

    in Women

    "Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it." ~ Mark Twain

    A new year is about to come on the scene and you may have some unfunished business to take care of. What kind of business? The rebuilding of some broken bridges that have happened between you and those who have offended you. 

    Moving into a new phase with old baggage only weighs you down. When you've got the weight of unforgiveness on you, even if it's just for one day, you've robbed yourself of the capacity to receive all the great things that the future has in store for you.

    Let's take a crack at setting things right before January 1st, shall we? 

    Tune in and join us today. We want to help you put away grudges, heal old wounds, and travel into 2015 with a lighter load and a healed heart. Call in, 646-716-6910, or log in to our LIVE chat room during the broadcast.

    Interview with Meredith Shaw

    in Music

    “At 14 I booked myself into a studio and recorded a demo and it was sent to a producer in Nashville. He liked it and I flew back and forth to Nashville a few times. So Nashville was the very first place I ever made music in a studio,” Toronto's Meredith Shaw explains. “And I know I have come back to this place very naturally. Every moment of putting these new songs together has felt right. I just feel very at ease and at home.”

    Her passion for country music was rekindled over the past few years through writing trips back down to Nashville, working with The Stellas and Carolyn Dawn Johnson - among others. Meredith's debut country single is called Better Than This - a song she co-wrote.

    “For much of the past couple of years most of the people I was writing with, talking with, and dealing with on a regular basis were in country music. I know I am in the right place,” she said adding that she has always been drawn to female singers who not only had powerful voices but powerful personalities, regardless of their genre citing the likes of Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Stevie Nicks, Trisha Yearwood, Martina McBride and fellow Canadians Shania Twain and CDJ as key role models.

    Songwriter/producer Jeff Johnson has been brought in to produce the music that will eventually become Meredith’s debut country music album. His track record with breakthrough acts like Wes Mack, and his writing credits with Dallas Smith, Madeline Merlo and Small Town Pistols impressed her.

    Meredith is the host of the top-rated weekend radio show in Toronto on boom 97.3, a model with a number of successful national campaigns to her name, a business owner of a gift and custom greeting card company, and a philanthropist who started the Girls Who Believe Festival to help girls and young women reach their fullest potential through affirmation and mentorship.

    in Elections

    This installment of The Forbidden Fruit will ask the question "Is voting all what it's cracked up to be?" It the Mid-Term Elections in America. This is the election time when we're not chosing a president, so turnout is traditionally lower. But in reality, does our votes really count? Who's counting our votes? Who's really making the major decisions in America? Is it America? A lot of Americans died for just to have the right to vote. If voting does really work, then it is the most important thing you can do as an American. On the other hand, if voting doesn't work then it is the most insane waste of time and money our country has ever participated in. What's your thought on the matter? Who are you voting for in your area of the country?

    Amanda Lamb, Country Singer / Songwriter

    in Country Music

    Pop Artist Jamie Roxx (www.JamieRoxx.us) Welcomes Pop Country Singer/ Songwriter Amanda Lamb to the show. 


    With the artistry of vocalist and songwriter Amanda Lamb, the compass points to Southern California and the sun swept shores of Orange County. Amanda’s new single, “We Were Here,” is an invitation to a coastline drive and an exuberant nod to her West coast roots.
    Growing up in Newport Beach, humming along to Dixie Chicks and Shania Twain on the radio, Amanda Lamb was entranced by the authenticity of country music. “The stories in these songs sounded real,” she says. When she began her personal musical journey, she recalls her grandmother making a perceptive suggestion. “She said, ‘Why aren't you singing country?’” Recording in Nashville, she realized that her Grandmother had been right. “Country Music feels more comfortable than anything I have ever done,” she says. “It feels like home.”

    How OLD is OLD for you.  I know some in their 30s that act like they're 60, conversely I know people in their 90s and act like they're 30. Two women come to mind...Diva #1, age 96, her mind as clear and sharp as a bell, still driving.  Diva #2, age 90, works mornings, drives to work, responsible for a plethora of chores.  When she was telling me about her duties, I had an'AH' moment...OUR BRAINS DON'T AGE, WE DO.  Both are keeping their brains active by participating in LIFE!

    I love Vivaldi...The Four Seasons...Winter, the 2nd-3rd acts of our lives...hmmm, I see winter as the springtime of my life, climbing higher on the path of life which has no end only new beginnings, new opportunities, new portals and vistas to enter to explore and that's what a group of retired Professional Actors have embraced, their fire-in-the-belly desire to stay involved during their so-called "retirement."
