Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014 is celebrated worldwide as #GivingTuesday, a day where charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world come together for the purpose of celebrating generosity and giving. Planet Restoration will do its part during our weekly "PR 13:20" show to celebrate giving by highlighting a few very special initiatives including Vancouver, BC's Project Blue Hands Society, Los Angeles' Playing For Change Foundation, and Washington, D.C.'s One Common Unity.
Also, our guest will be Wes Days, musical artist, teacher, and U.S. expat now residing in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil with his beautiful family. His life has taken him on a phenomenal journey to several countries around the world, including a 4-year journey on a school bus from Washington, D.C. to Costa Rica, with a community of artists and musicians. For several years, he's been engaged in peace and reconciliation initiatives, having worked with Seeds of Peace and One Common Unity, and is now making another evolutionary leap, soon moving from Salvador, Bahia to Rio de Janeiro, where he's continuing his life path and purpose of engaging communities via the arts and transformative culture, bringing the power of creative change where its needed most.
In the spirit of #GivingTuesday, we encourage people to visit Planet Restoration's online store at http://www.PlanetRestoration.info/#Store and purchase the #EraseEbola and #StandUPforAfrica t-shirts. Proceeds from these sales benefit the work of EmergencyUSA in their efforts to stop the spread of Ebola in Sierra Leone.

Born in Louisiana, Wes Ricks' music is a by-product of his Choctaw Indian roots, but oddly enough, his musical journey began in Vietnam. From 1966 to 1967 he was a "River Rat" for the U.S. Navy patrolling the waters -- "a sitting duck" in a small 2-man boat, often 24-hour days, looking for Viet Cong and smugglers carrying contraband -- drugs, munitions and anything that would aid the enemy. After his tour of duty Wes signed up for guitar and keyboard lessons through the Phoenix VA Health System's Recreation Therapy program. But soon after, as he and his late wife, Margie walked through the Mall in Tempe, AZ the distinctive sound of a pentatonic flute being played by Native American flutist, Sagio called to him -- and Wes was hooked. His musical career was put on hold for 12 years, while he cared for his wife until her death in 2007. Now, he volunteers at the VA, travels and through his music Wes expresses his "inner self." His heritage, heartache, harrowing experiences and happiness are all part of his music. Oliver Wendell Holmes said: "Many people will die with their music still in them." But Wes Ricks won't be one of those people.

In this 20 minute Buzz-saw Briefing, Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti articulates his well-thought out Buzzspiracy invoving New England Patriots wide reciever Wes Welker and the reasons behind his decreased production. As George "the Howitzer" Gerbo listens in disbelief and with humor at what he hears, the Buzz-saw will explain how Welker is apparently being manipulated so he cannot gain the "straight cash homie" that should be entitled to him at the end of his contract. The Buzz-saw covers all possible crazy scenarios in this briefing. It's an outlandish but shockingly plausible Buzzspiracy from The Howitzer and Buzz-saw Show...conquering sports radio, one day at a time...
(Original show air date: 9/20)
Tonight your host Bill Bachman interviews Wes Forsythe, the host of the internet radio show 'Paranormal Filler'. Wes is also a ghost hunter, paranormal researcher, and aspiring "light worker" and "spiritual warrior" from central Kentucky. As he researched phenomena he was encountering in the field, he started attracting the attention of psychics that told him he had certain "gifts" that he has only begun to explore. These revelations sparked a strong interest in the spiritual side of the field that he strives to balance with his technical knowledge. His passion in learning about the paranormal manifested into Paranormal Filler, a weekly internet radio show currently heard on multiple networks including LiveParanormal.com and Art Bell's Dark Matter Network and freely syndicated across the web. On the show he tries to have fun while encompassing a wide range of topics and viewpoints. His guests regularly include paranormal investigators, psychics, energy workers, authors, and celebrities.
