SORT BY Relevancy
Dublin is one of a few cities in Europe that has not lost sight of the human interaction element. In fact, to the Dublin citizens, it is still the way of life that can neither be substituted with historic buildings nor preserved just for small villages. Founded in 841 by the Vikings, Dublin is a city with an interesting historical past that’s tightly attached to all the city’s monuments and churches. A visit to St. Patrick’s Cathedral or Christchurch Cathedral will take you back to Medieval times while a walk around Merrion square will remind you of the glorious days of Dublin when it was ranked as the second city of the British Empire after London. Today, Dublin is the Cosmopolitan capital of the Irish Republic with 1 million inhabitants. Despite the many changes the city has encountered in the last decade, it still remains as a desirable place for any who wishes to visit. more at www.avtravel.org and www.avtravel.com

AND NEXT WEEK - THE CANNY BROTHERS BAND AND THE DRUIDS
Shining a light on the incident in Dublin, GA when a police drug task force killed David Hooks in his home made me look at what policies and practice the Police use in these type of circumstances. Nationally, and, locally for me, we have had a number of recent deaths that have thrown Police practice and Policy under the microscope. This along with the Grand Jury Process, are paramount to review and understand., Juxatposed with the Constitution. Joining me tonight to disucss what happened to David Hooks is Former Laurens County Deputy Sheriff Jerald "Tom" McCain. Considered an expert on the Constitutional Duties of a Sheriff in Georgia Tom is also a Certified Law Enforcement Classroom Instructor. He is the former Chief Deputy Sheriff of Johnson County, GA from 2001 to 2008 after working as a Deputy Sheriff in Laurens Cty, GA where David Hooks was killed, from 92 thru 98. He personally knows a number of the law enforcement officials involved in this case. He will help us understand the subjects we discuss tonight. Please join us.

The epidemic is on going. Sadly because our news media only covers a narrative that suits there current frame other misdeeds by police go unreported or marginally reported. Bobby Rodrigo, host of Coffee Party Radio Show "I take Liberty with my Coffee" brought this story to me. I almost blew my top. How did I miss it. I told Bobby that I would blog the story. The blog post "The execution of this White brother, David Hooks, by police need coverage too" is getting very good coverage.
Today we are doing a combined show. We will start "Politics Done Right w/Egberto Willies" for the first hour and then merge into "I take Liberty with my Coffee w/Bobby Rodrigo." Bobby will be doing the show directly from Dublin, Georgia where he will be attending the "Rally For Justice For David Hooks."

Don't miss our interview with the baddest MMA fighter to walk the Earth, our friend, Bryan Cromer!
What role did the Irish play in the Transatlantic slave trade? Were the Irish ever enslaved or slave owners?
Join my special guest, Dr. Maurice Gleeson for a compelling overview of Ireland and the Slave Trade.
Dr. Maurice Gleeson is a psychiatrist from Dublin who works in London as a pharmaceutical physician. He is an avid genealogist and has traced his Irish family tree back to about 1800 on half of his ancestral lines. Using DNA, he was able to get back into the 1600's on one line, and this inspired his interest in Ireland's involvement with the Transatlantic Slave Trade.
This week Peter Greenberg travel to the Marker Hotel in Dublin to interview the Irish locals. Turtle Bunbury, Irish travel writer, historian and author, tells us about Dublin’s historic Docklands area “1300 acres in the heart of the city being re-established after economic decline,” and how biblical lineage is the reason for Irish pub culture.
Join us for this special Christmas episode of In The Country featuring Country artists Riki Knox, Mike Biggar & RyLee Madison. Each of them has a Christmas song to share.
A true performer, Riki has been described by her audiences as charismatic and highly entertaining. Whether she’s getting people up on their feet dancing, or engaging them with the strength of her original songs, Riki has a knack for drawing in the crowd and creating an unforgettable musical experience. She’s a girl who values and appreciates the ‘little things in life’. That grounded mindset has seen her go from playing church and charity events, to sharing the big stage with artists like Dallas Smith, Marc Jordan, Carole Pope, Jack DeKeyzer & Justin Hines to name a few.
Mike is an award-winning Country-Rock artist from Canada’s East Coast. His infectious melodies are well-spiced with lyrics of life, love, and loss. Powerful, punchy anthems with generous helpings of clever hooks and smart writing sit opposite intimate, tender ballads. Soaring vocals, honest lyrics and keenly focused performance energy concoct a compelling musical potion that makes instant fans of those who listen.
Born and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia, RyLee's music may have carried her to Nashville, but her hometown always plays an important role. RyLee says, "Nashville is my second home. I've created family here with my husband and friends but my first home will always be Nova Scotia." RyLee has traveled to Europe, performing at Festival Country Rendez-Vous in France, Whelan's Pub in Dublin, Ireland, Half Moon in Cork, Ireland, and Róisín Dubh Pub in Galway, Ireland and at the famed Bluebird Cafe in Nashville.
