    THE FUNKY RHYTHM CONNECTION with DONALD GRAMMER

    in Radio

    Funky beats, a rhythm that will keep you moving and meditating.  One of the better CONNECTIONS you're find on the Internet.  Donald Grammer cuts, blends, mixes jazz fusion, like no one else.  Music is the universal language.  When you have a great song on, it can mood you, and entice.  Close your eyes and hear new concepts and realisms with notes jumping off the graph.  Half notes, quarter notes, hip hop, R&B, fused with jazz and a spectrum of melody you won't forget.  Donald Grammer and a little bit of me, Tolliver.

    My Childhood Favorites In The Basement With JaVonne

    in Music

    Since this is a holiday weekend, one that brings back fond memories of family barbeques and picnics, I have been reminded of some of the sounds that shaped my love of music. Actually, my love of music is still being shaped. Whenever I hear something brand new that hits me in a particular way, it adds to my musical taste, so, I'm going to do this show only focusing on music I knew by age 12.  Let's go back...back into time...Now most of it is "soul music" and "R&B" but you might be surprised at some of the cuts that made my list of early favorites.

    Live music: Midnight Lover slow R&B,lovers rock 60s 70s 80s reggae just for you

    Live music: Midnight Lover slow R&B,lovers rock 60s 70s 80s reggae just for you 


    Motown Love Songs: Motown Milestones emphasizes the label's romantic ballads and slow jams, and while tracks like the Miracles' "Ooo Baby Baby," the Jackson 5's "I'll Be There" and the Temptations' "Just My Imagination (Running Away with Me)" are all undisputed classics, over the course of its 18 cuts the collection grows thin, with too many of the songs subscribing to the same sonic formula (gossamer harmonies, lush strings and glacial rhythms). The track selection is also more than a little suspect -- any collection of Motown love songs on which the contributions of Michael Jacksonoutnumber those of Marvin Gaye by a two-to-one ratio really needs to go back to the drawing board.

    Philly's Finest - Coach Eric Taylor

    in Motivation

    HISTORY


     


    Founded in 2012 assisting athletes from South Eastern Pennsylvania improve their football and life skills. This unique opportunity started when a group of young men were turned away from playing a sport they had all grown up loving and playing. Those young men came together along with their parents and decided to form their own team. After presenting their situation to a local football coach they began practicing and competing. Philly’s Finest has quickly become one of the most successful 7v7 programs on the east coast.


     


    MISSION


     


    To serve our community and youth by providing an environment that breeds competition in athletics and education. The athletes are surrounded by positive coaches and mentors that help guide the athletes through the everyday challenges they face on the field, in the classroom, and in their communities. They are provided with guidance throughout each level of education from high school through college. With the high level of college athletes that graduate from our program, we have become experienced in providing a level of guidance and assistance in the college recruiting process. We not only teach the physical aspects of the game but we raise the athletic intelligence level of each of our athletes. Our goal is to bring out the competitor in each of our athletes so they can be successful on the field and in the classroom.


     


    VISION



     An organization that is made up of football, basketball, track, soccer and cheerleading. Education in the college recruiting process is major and must be provided to parents as well as athletes. Our organization plans to provide that education. Competition will not be limited to just athletics. Our youth will compete in academic competitions in the fields of law, medicine, and business. To further prepare them, our goal is to establish strong tutoring, SAT, and ACT programs.

    Chew the Phat Kewl Khat: Peter Ferrara From Forbes On Welfare Reform!

    in Politics

    Can welfare reform end poverty in America? Peter Ferrara believes it can. Peter is a great article writer and a great contributer to Forbes! Peter has writen numerous articles about many different subjets of interest. Do not be surprised if he wakes you up to what welfare reform will mean to our country as a whole. Come listen to Peter Ferrara speak and answer questions that anyone may have about how our government spends over a trillion dollars a year on welfare! Call in and share your two cents on this issue. Call in at 1-347-677-1837.


    The passage of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA) in 1996 changed the way the federal government finances cash welfare to low-income families. Instead of a matching grant, states receive a set amount of federal funds in the form of a block grant with no adjustments for inflation, caseload numbers, or state spending. Social assistance programs, however, tend to experience increased demand in recessions – more people require assistance from the government during difficult economic times. To meet increased demand, states have to increase spending, but recessions usually bring lower revenues to states, requiring some cuts to discretionary spending. Analysts were concerned that PRWORA’s change to a block grant would jeopardize social spending during times of state fiscal stress and cause states to disproportionately cut welfare spending during recession.

    SPIRITUALLY SPEAKING: ACTOR THOM SCOTT II JOIN US ONCE AGAIN ...

    in Spirituality

    Thom's goal is to fulfill God's purpose for his life by using his artistic talents to affect change, galvanize emotions, stimulate learning, and entertain the world.


     


    Raised in the theatre by his actress mother, Thom was bitten by the acting bug at the tender age of three. Convinced that his calling was to entertain, he played child roles in To Be Young, Gifted and Black and Medea at Morgan State University in Baltimore, Maryland. While at Wilde Lake High School in Columbia, Maryland, Thom juggled talent shows, where he performed as a comedian and vocalist, with athletics, where he was a basketball and track standout. Because of his interests in both sports and entertainment, his athletic coaches nicknamed him “HOLLYWOOD.”
