    the detectors radio network It's All About the Real Deal

    in Radio

    Tonight D'Anne will discuss the real deal of being Black in America as seems from the eyes of a Black former Veteran, a man who had all of the insight the mind and ability to achieve but was Black in America and country which offers opportunity as they state to everyone but in the case of millions of Black Americans the struggle is no different as coming out of slavery as they cannot see tomorrow from the plight of the lack of understanding and the creation of imposed systems to control the people of the world before using GOD systems and now via camera's machines and diseases that plague every community.


    The influence of systematically controlled movies, music and by the use of frequencies, the goals that you may have maybe be you’re as they agenda is more than you will ever realize. Listen to Brother Stone Cold who will be on again to discuss the issues of being Black and what in his view needs to be done to create change and a real chance for black youth in America whose agenda is a Eugenic program to eliminated the unneeded who are waking up from their sleep and who are beginning to realize who they really are both black and white within the Prison World in which we live.

    David Meltzer CEO of Sports 1 Marketing on African American Athletes Giving Back

    in Lifestyle

    Today's guest is David Meltzer. In his early 20s, David Meltzer was at the top of his game in the business world and lecturing around the globe. But something was missing, and the multimillionaire went on a rapid downward spiral that ended in bankruptcy. It was only then that David realized, in order to revive and thrive, he needed to blend spirituality with business. He started to develop his newfound life and business outlook as CEO to sports super agent Leigh Steinberg, where he, along with Leigh, and Warren Moon, negotiated over $2 Billion in sports and entertainment contracts. In addition to athlete representation, LSSE served as creative and technical consultants on movie and television projects such as: Jerry Maguire, Any Given Sunday, For The Love Of The Game, HBO’s Arli$$.The common perception of successful sports agents is an aggressive-to-be-effective persona that is as powerful at negotiating as their athletes are at sports.


     


    David is joining us to talk about African American athletes who are giving back to the communities, cities and states where they come from through charitable programs to promote education, health, self-esteem, self-discipline and the joy that comes from donating time and money to help others. Working with Warren Moon and his foundation that helps others reach their goals and remain motivated. Warren like many other Africian American athletes are forming foundations to help young people, their parents and communities nuture dreams that better their lives and the people around them.


     


    Connecting to goodness seems an unlikely goal in either sports agenting or sports marketing, but it is the best un-kept secret of one of the best sports agents in the business.   Now enormously successful, he never forgets the value of that connection – and he is here today to discuss it with us.
