    Interview w/Rising Indie Artist J-oH hosted by Qween$Ching

    in Hip Hop Music

    The youngest of four siblings, J-oH was born December 29, 1984 in Washington DC. J-oH did not grow up in the ideal situation but his mother made the best of it and worked several jobs to support the family. His father played a role in the beginning but by the age of 4 he began to fade away. J-oH’s mother was his world and was always there to believe in him. Motown became J-oH’s life and R&B became his sprit. He grew up listening to classical, Motown, rock and soft rock, as well as Hip Hop. When his mom passed in November of 1993, when J-oH was 9 years old his father attempted to re-enter his life with no success.

    J-oH knew that music was his future when he first heard Boogiemonsters’ “Recognized Thresholds of Negative Stress”. To him music was his means to escape and vent about his struggles and what was going on in his life at the moment. J-oH’s first recorded song was a compilation of tracks inspired by his family. It was from this point on that J-oH never put down the pen. Throughout the years J-oH’s rough upbringing caught up with him and J-oH found himself in and out of jail. J-oH knew he had a gift when it came to writing but it wasn’t until he did time up state that he was able to focus on and grow his craft. After focusing on honing is craft J-oH came out with his new sound and released a tack entitled "Guide Me Like Harmony".J-oH’s new sound was a reflection of his growth and maturity into adulthood. The man with many styles, a chameleon so to speak, J-oH has come a long way. 

    J-oH decided to team up with other musically inspired friends to form a team named V.A.B. (VA Bullies) Oh, and if you're wondering why J-oH is his name, it stems back to 2000 when he would battle leaving the audience saying “ooohh." He evetually began to be introduced as J-oH.

    The Decision Of What To Do With Your Life Is A Decision Which All Of Us Must Mak

    in Education

    The decision of what to do with your life is a decision which we all must make. We will after all, end up "doing" something regardless of whether it is a conscious decision we make or an unconscious decision we make to do that thing. If you don't decide how you want to live as well as what you wnt to be and do, then someone or something else will decide for you. If this happens, instead of living according to your own inner values and enjoyment, you will yeild control of your life to a combination of subconscious influences such as genetic predispositions, upbringing, social conditioning, environment, or the opinions of other people in your life. You have many great years left after retiring are you going to surrender control of your life ...

    Don Graham & Marshall Dane

    in Country Music

    Don Graham and Marshall Dane - Together Again For the First Time!

    Don Graham is a veteran country singer/songwriter having spent over four decades perfecting his craft. He has performed globally, picking up friends and fans around the world. Don was signed in the early days to Irving Almo Music to a writers deal by the legendary Brian Chater, resulting in him relocating from his hometown of Montreal to Toronto. Don now spends his time performing at select venues, while also travelling to showcase at places like the Nashville Palace in Tennessee, a private party during MIDEM in Cannes, France and appearing on the pilot for a video show hosted by Dave Woods.

    Marshall Dane was born in Southern Ontario and brought up on music, with a preacher Dad who played guitar and a musical Mum who played piano. Playing his first solo gig at age fifteen for thirty-five bucks and a plate of cheesecake, Marshall tried working in a band before eventually taking fate in to his own hands in 2008, heading down to Nashville for a master-class in composing country songs. Playing in bars and clubs as a solo singer and with a touring band has given him his fair share of stories and insights – great for writing songs. But when it comes to cooking up a tune, Marshall admits that his parents’ spiritual upbringing permeates his writing, with themes of love, home and kindness appearing throughout his songs.

    Don and Marshall will be performing their show - Don Graham and Marshall Dane - Together Again For the First Time! - on November 26th at Musideum in Toronto.

    Tune in to hear this dynamic duo tell stories, tell jokes and share songs on this special episode of In The Country.

    ADD/ADHD – Truths & Misconceptions

    in Nutrition

    The diagnosis of the conditions Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are on a very steep rise, especially, in America. In fact, according to a 2010 US government survey, 1 in 10 American children now have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder – that’s a 22 percent increase from 2003! Moreover, about two thirds of these children are on some form of medication. Oddly enough, however, in France the diagnosis occurs in less than 5% of children! Why is there such a huge difference between these 2 countries? Is it lifestyle? Diet? Upbringing? The medical establishment? Are the majority of these children really hyperactive or are they simply victims of social conditioning?

    In this episode, Dr. Budweiser, founder of Weiser Living, will reveal his take on this vastly over-diagnosed condition. He will share what he believes is really going on and explore how parents can support their children who are having difficulties with attention and hyperactivity using a natural approach effectively.

    Gay or Straight....Are people BORN with a certain sexuality,or is it developed?

    in Education

    In all of my many discussions about this topic, No one has ever provided me with substantial evidence to prove/disprove the answer to this topic. With so many theories and philosophies about homosexuality, I'd like to hear your views about whether or not someone can be born gay. As a matter of fact, can someone be born straight? Is sexuality something that you're born with? This is dialogue is not to condemn people on their choices, but instead, it's to gather thoughts of your understanding. Is sexuality based on environment and upbringing, or is it something biological? At what point/age does sexual desires begin to arise?

    I look forward to a great, and informative dialogue. Tune in from 9pm-11pm est, to "Darryel's Daily Dialogue...where positive words, manifest positive actions.
