    The Venue Series concludes w/ an historical bombshell; Ellis Island!

    in Lifestyle

    The Wedding Jeannie’s Venue Series concludes with an historical bombshell; Ellis Island!

    Ellis Island is open for business again and NOT just for tourists!  As we conclude our Venue Series this week, we end on an island that very few people know even allows events, let alone all the possibilities that can be conceived to host corporate and social functions and weddings too! Patti Golden, an Ellis Island veteran will walk us through the logistics of the magical, historical and spacious myriad opportunities to have a truly unique party, even for a jaded New Yorker!  We will explore all the indoor and outdoor options as well as the operations side of having guests take ferries, vendors make deliveries and hosts feel comfortable.  The historical significance of many of the spaces and the grounds are only a few of the secrets that we will reveal that guests can revel in when spending a night on Ellis Island.

    Join Jeannie Uyanik for the final Venue Series episode, Wednesday, June 4th at noon!

    The Ferry Boat Show

    in Sports

    There was a time, we've been told, when human beings looked at large bodies of water as barriers to mobility. And then a few hearty souls—Vikings, the Great Chinese Fleet, the Polynesians, and others—figured out that large bodies of water are a way to increase mobility. Today we take transport across water for granted, and in this show we'll celebrate ferries. In fact, for a lot of people, the very phase, "It's my boat!" means "my ferry is coming and I'd better run."  Ann will tell us about how a ferry makes her life in Port Townsend possible. And Barbara Jean reports on her "Day on the Bay" as San Francisco Ferry Artist-in-Residence for the Day. Since one of her favorite boats on the Bay is Adventure Cat, designed by Kurt Hughes, she'll also give us an update on Kurt's work with Ferries, particularly with EarthWise in Africa. What's your ferry story?

    Steroids in Baseball, Ferry Tolls, and more...

    in Politics Progressive

    On the August 8th episode of Liberal Dan Radio:
    Alex Rodruiguez was just suspended through the end of the 2014 season and many others have also been suspended for their alleged use of prohibited substances. Is this right? Does Major League Baseball have some hypocrisy on the impact that these substances have on the game when other things that they do allow have extreme impacts on the game?
    New Orleans is playing around with a horrible idea to fund the ferries. How could this have been stopped? What other examples would be better for ferry users? And what little nugget did I find on the stop the tolls website do I find most ironic?
    New Orleans has some major failures when it comes to education. I will go into some of them as well.
    The Liberal Dan Radio Kickstarter is still underway. Consider sponsoring the show or supporting it with contributions as low as $1.
    Those topics, headlines, words of redneck wisdom, and more all tonight on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That's Right!

    Ferry Tolls, Education, and Untested Methods

    in Politics Progressive

    On the August 22nd episode of Liberal Dan Radio:
    Well, the New Orleans City Council made a decision on what to charge for tolls to cross the river on a ferry. Thank you to the "stop the tolls" folks for screwing the ferry riders over. I will rant about that for a bit and why they couldn't simply find an alternate way to fund the ferries.  
    The past few weeks I have said that I would talk about education in New Orleans and why the charter school model is failing many different people. I will go into that topic as well.
    Finally, I will be having Eric from Untested Methods on the show to discuss the new album that is dropping soon. This is a Liberal Radio exclusive, you won't want to miss it.
    All that plus headlines, words of redneck wisdom, tweet of the week, and more tonight on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk from the left, that's right.  
    And remember, there are 9 days left to the Liberal Dan Radio Kickstarter. So make sure to contribute what you can. Anything is appreciated (even $1).

    More on Jindal's veto (and more)

    in Politics Progressive

    This week's Liberal Dan Radio will air on July 3rd at 8pm.
    I will talk about several issues. At the end of the hour I will be talking with another member of the grassroots movement to override the Governor's veto of services for persons with developmental disabilities.
    I will also be discussing the Algiers ferry with someone from Friends of the Ferry. The service hours of the Algiers ferry has been reduced significantly. Some people are thinking a lawsuit might be what is needed to stop this from happening.
    If there is time I will also be discussing the sheer insantiy that is sweeping throug the GOP at the moment. They are obsessed and they cannot help themselves.
    All that, headlines, words of redneck wisdom, and more on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That's Right!
    Please remember to go to the Kickstarter and support the show. And if you are hearing this on the podcast, please remember to comment on the show page as well.

    Shawn Nelson and the Ramblers

    in Music


    Close your eyes and imagine this for a few moments – soft white sands massaging your toes, the sweet aroma of waves braking down on the pristine blue reef while your guitar rests in your lap as you’re writing about this very moment for your next album.  This is sort of what Shawn Nelson of Shawn Nelson and the Ramblers was experiencing as he backpacked Costa Rica a few years ago, “I wanted to go somewhere…and do some self-exploration” which is how Shawn Nelson elaborated to me.   Clearly, jumping on planes, ferries, busses and trains throughout Europe and the Caribbean is not something new to Shawn, having played an integral role in his songwriting.  Currently, Shawn and the Ramblers are working on their next album release coming out in October, together with several upcoming shows.   What is Shawn Nelson doing when he’s not performing “I enjoy reading, researching current events…I’m always trying to look for ways to learn and try to understand the world a little better”.   Really insightful interview, take a look.
