A Genealogical Quest in the Triracial South
What began as genealogical research into the author's ancestry soon grew into a fascinating tale with lessons for us all. Among his ancestors, Johnson uncovered: unpunished murderers, infidelities that produced stronger families than formal marriages, entire units of North Carolinians who fought and died to preserve the Union in the Civil War. The tale holds enough plot twists for a half-dozen novels.
But most of all, it reveals in a personal way what molecular anthropologists have been trying to explain all along. The fact is that we are all of multiple ancestries. Inhabitants of the New World are a genetic mix of three great populations, Native Americans, European colonists, and African slaves. Nowhere is this more vivid than in Pell Mellers, the story of one man's search for his tangled roots.
"In Paul Johnson's engaging journey into his roots in Bertie County, North Carolina, he discovers an intriguing family of pocosin dwellers who personify the South's multiracial heritage and its political minorities, including Unionists and the original Buffalo Soldiers. Pell Mellers is a solid contribution to the history of the "other South" that complements the well-traveled mainstream, illustrating our rich and textured past." -- Lindley S. Butler, author of Pirates, Privateers, and Rebel Raiders of the Carolina Coast..Read full description of episode here!

I SAMUEL 30: 1-25 DAVID AVENGES ZIKLAG, ZIKLAG DESTROYED BY FIRE.
vs. 1. And it came to pass, when David and his men were come to Ziklag on the third day, that the Amalekites had invaded the South, and Ziklag, and burned it with fire;
vs. 2. And had taken the women captive that were therein: they slew not any, either great or small, but carried them away.
vs. 3. So David and his men came to the city, and behold it was burned with fire; and their wives, and their sons, and their daughters, were taken captives.
vs. 4. Then David and the people that were with him lifted up their voice, and wept, until they had more power to weep.
vs. 5. And David's two wives were taken captives, Ahinoam the Jezreelitess, and Abigail the wife of Nabal the Carmelite.
vs. 6. And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his GOD.
vs. 7. And David said to Abiathar the priest, Ahimelech's son, I pray thee, bring me hither the ephod. And Abiathar brought thither the ephod to David.
vs. 8. And David enquired at the LORD, saying, shall I pursue after this troop ? Shall I overtake them ?
And he answered him pursue: for thou shall surely overtake them, and without fail recover all. vs. 9. So david went, he and the 600 men that were with him, and came to the brook Besor, where those that were left behind stayed.
On the latest edition of Three Rivers...One Show, Matt Gajtka welcomes City of Champions staffers Larry Snyder and Zac Weiss to examine the latest developments on the Pittsburgh sports scene. The guys start with the Steelers, who are on the verge of clinching a playoff spot after overcoming an uninspiring start. What was the turning point and what is this team's ceiling? As for the Penguins, could they have done anything differently regarding the unprecedented spread of mumps? Also, the Bucs hosted their annual PirateFest last weekend, showing off new signings A.J. Burnett and Francisco Liriano. Are they done adding talent until the spring? Finally, Pitt is in a predicament, with another football coach leaving town and athletic director Steve Pederson stepping down.
Back in those days when families were gathered around the TV, yours truly remembers enjoying certain artists from "The Lawrence Welk Show." One of those acts was The McGuire Sisters. Their harmonies were amazing - the kind of blending and weaving that only family members can give us. And they conveyed such joy and hope! When listening to The Ault Sisters, you hear the same kind of magic. They sound absolutely angelic. So - how fitting to have them as guests this time of year?
In fact, The Ault Sisters will be our last guests of 2014. So, the show on 12/18 will truly be special :) Just a little background on Amanda, Alicia and Alanna - they are from Toronto and have been singing for a long time. Even though they are still quite young! All have had formal music education. And, though their musical tastes are different, they agree that Jazz lends itself to the complex harmonies that they so love. They first performed as a trio in 2004. In 2006, they released "Christmas Feelings" - and that album paved the way for so much to happen. Including a yearly holiday event at the popular Hugh's Room in their city. It's always a benefit show. And it's always much anticipated - many have said that it's not the season until they hear the Sisters perform at Hugh's!
That show this year is coming up - and, at the same time - the single by our trio, "May You Always", is doing REALLY well for them. It's the kind of song that lingers in your spirit once you've heard it.
Please join us for a triumverate of beautiful young ladies who have been blessed with fabulous voices. They will truly make you feel Christmas!
See you in The Chat Room - we'll miss you in the days to come as "Hybrid Jazz" takes an extended hiatus. Blessings to ALL!

Tough Talk with Tony Gambone with his guest Christine Marmoy & Angella Johnson:
Christine Marmoy was a successful Marketing Consultant helping her clients achieve high visibility in the International market place so they were able to grow their business globally and ultimately attract more clients. After years spent developing different strategies, events, and products based on the power of Collaboration, she decided to merge her passion for books and marketing. From one side she was helping her clients by teaching them how to become sought after experts, propelling their businesses to the top. Eventually, she decided to create the tool which would allow them to achieve this success in 90 days.The convergence of her two passions led to the creation, organization and publishing of a new kind of book….a Marketing Anthology. Today, CM Publisher comprises 15 people, all passionate about books.
Angella Johnson is a business visionary, and a marketing and messaging strategist with an intuitive flair. She is the secret weapon behind conscious businesses who are committed to change the world and also make great money. After building her business to six figures twice, Angella discovered that her intuition and truth created the most joy, financial abundance and freedom she was seeking, rather than following someone else’s one-size-fits-all formula. She combines strategy and intuition to help other SOULpreneurs and businesses integrate all of their gifts with their big vision so they can be the contribution they desire and live a powerful and prosperous life.
