    CYNTHIA HOLIDAY - EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW- TUES, MAR, 31 2015 - 7:00 pm PST

    in Music

    She's not Billie, not Judy, not Jennifer, not Carmen, not Nancy, it's Cynthia Holiday!


    Cynthia Holiday is a real crowd pleaser and her renditions of straight-ahead jazz, blues and pop standards are full of swing, improvisation and soul. Clearly, singing live before an audience is where she feels most comfortable.


    Kevin Mahogany says, "I met Cynthia many years ago when I used to frequent various jam sessions in Harlem clubs. I was struck by her ability to quickly command the stage. Cynthia has fantastic stage presence and it's time for her music to be heard."


    Cynthia says "I love the up-and-close feeling of performing in small, intimate venues like SMOKE or Showmans Jazz Club in NYC. I also enjoy the thrill of performing for an audience of 10,000 + people at outdoor events like the Harlem Jazz & Blues Festival or Hartford Jazz Festival." Following her performance, the Hartford Courier's music review said of Cynthia "She may have been unfamiliar to the audience, but Holiday quickly won over the crowd with her blues-soaked swing and charming banter."


    Since the 2008 release of her debut album, All The Way, on the Miles High Records Label, Cynthia Holiday has made new fans and friends in the US and internationally. Most recently she served as a judge in the 2013 Asian Dreams Jazz Vocal Competition followed by a performance with the TS Monk Septet in Osaka, Japan.


    Cynthia's gifted vocals and natural inclination for jazz is attributed to her upbringing in Newark, New Jersey where music filled her home on any given day. Her stepfather, trumpeter Calvin Hughes was a band leader and performed with such jazz greats as Count Basie, Frank Foster, Clark Terry, Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis, and Big Maybelle.

    The True Healing of Ho 'oponopono with Douglas "Ka'iwi" Ah Hee - Grace Christian

    in Motivation

    Douglas “Ka’iwi” Ah Hee, a Kahu in Hawaii, will be discussing his work in - and philosophy of - healing, and the need for a strong faith.  His experiences in “seeing” what was going on with his client’s body, allowed him to recognize how their memories from past events would promote disease.   By explaining this to them, he has helped many -  not only free their body of pain- but also open up to understanding their own “gifts”.


    Kahu Ka’iwi will discuss cases from his own work that describe how releasing these ties to harmful memories helped clients.  He helps clients heal physically, emotional, and spiritually – the true healing of ho’ oponopono.


    Douglas “Ka`iwi” Ah Hee comes from the windward side of the island of Oahu, Hawai`i.  He credits his pure Hawaiian grandmother for his upbringing and “gifts.”  She would talk to people that he could not “see.” Growing up as a “sensitive” was never discussed by anyone in his family.  Her passing when he was 16, caused much angst, as he did not know how to deal with his seeing, feeling, and sensing “spirits.”  It was not until he had his 2 daughters, and they shared with him of what they were “seeing”, that he decided to embrace his “gifts.” 


     Ka’iwi started The Ho`ola Foundation LLC, which was created to teach individuals, groups and eventually communities to empower themselves. Through Ho`oponopono (to make right; or correct) and Ha`aha`a (humility) one may restore the true La`a kea (Sacred Light) of Aloha within the mind, body and spirit.


    Ho'ola - meaning to give life, heal, to cure; Ola - meaningful life, well-being, living.

    Sunday on the Front Stoop

    in Energy

    All these years when 


    America had free grade school and free high school, why has 


    college been SO expensive?  When a student graduates high school 


    the average age is 18.  That's the same age when he or she can 


    become a military soldier.  If they could not afford that 


    expensive college, they've been told to just go overseas for a 


    few years and they will afford higher education.


    The sad news is that some of these teenagers never returned home 


    and died in the army or navy or air force.  Even some that were 


    lucky enough to return home, committed suicide after leaving 


    these wars.  When they return home, they are reminded of their 


    loving religious upbringing.  They had been taught to "love thy 


    neighbor" or "thou shalt not kill".  If they were told overseas 


    to "go in that house and kill whoever you see" they now mourn 


    for all those innocent men or women or children that they killed 


    under military order.  


    Fortunately, President Obama is now recommending that college 


    becomes as free to our students as was their grade school and 


    high school.  Instead of learning to kill, high school grads can 


    now continue to learn the truth on how to save our planet.


    As an example, Saudi Arabia is No. 6 on the list of 


    dictatorships in our world.  They get most of their weapons from 


    countries like ours and we get a low price for the oil from 


    under their ground.  Instead of sending our boys and girls 


    overseas to get that good price on their oil, why not switch to 


    solar or wind power?  That could also put an end to Climate 


    Change on our planet.

    Clean Bills - Sanger the Hero - Ferguson Fools

    in Politics

    Hr1  Christianity Today defends Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger.

    Newly approved Palcohol... a dry form of alcohol to mix with water. So that it's easier to get your alcohol on the go when you need it. Do we really need this?

    Why can't Republicans and Democrats agree on a bill to crack down on human-trafficking? Because they always want to add "other" stuff into the bills. Cracking down on human-trafficking should be a no-brainer. Why can't we have a CLEAN bill? 

    Joe Biden laments the Middle Class.


    Hr2   Sean Hannity asks Ferguson protesters their thoughts on the DOJ report. It didn't turn out the way they wanted it to, so they're going to keep protesting until they get their perceived justice.


    Christianity Today defends Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger. I guess they forgot her legacy of murder (abortion)? Margaret Sanger wanted to rid world of "the unfit." She didn't mean birth defects, she meant blacks. She's not a hero! Know your history!


    Hr3  Denzel Washington dishes on his religious upbringing and his faith in God and the Bible.


    War on Christianity (not all religions). You don't see the Quran and Torah being banned from schools, military, and public places like is happening with the Bible.


    Celebrities who "come out" vocal about their Christian faith.


    Are you looking for your blessing? When was the last time you blessed someone else?


    Ferguson police setup & got themselves shot to gain sympathy, according to neighboring city clerk. OMG! Really?!

    You want me to put that WHERE....................?!!

    in Romance

    Calm down....no need to fret my friend, we're talking oral sex this time, your anus is safe. For now :) This Wednesday, join us as we chit chat in the studio about our 2nd favorite "O" word......yes, ORAL! Sex that is!


    What's sex without oral? Can you be with someone who didn't enjoy receiving oral sex? Or worse, someone who didn't enjoy giving oral? And to be GOOD at oral sex, you have to actually enjoy it! Agree? Disagree? Are you willing to "try" it out, but not sure if you're doing it right? Can oral sex be taught? Do men actually cheat if they don't receive fellatio? What if he cums in my mouth? What if she squirts in my mouth? Or worse, what if they're not fresh?!.............................LOL I'v e been asked every single last one of these questions and MUCH more! Don't worry, this time I wrote them down, did a few screen shots (you're safe, no worries) and we're covering them all on the show! I really thought oral sex was a part of sex, like everybody was doing it; apparently I'm wrong. SO many women (and to my surprise, men) have hangups when it comes to oral sex. For whatever reason (religion, upbringing, lack of knowledge, sexual abouse, etc) we're here to talk about it! Hopefully by the end of the show, everybody will be eager to get on their knees! LOL just jokes, just jokes :)


    Who better to have on the show than Mr. #LivFre himself, Maurice Destined for Greatness! A South Florida native now living the LIFE in Amsterdam (can you sense my jealousy in the text)?! Determined to live life without limits, Maurice believes "no matter who or what, one should live true to their personal destiny. Life is about the experience of living it." #LivFre Be sure to tune in with an open mind!
