Sean and Loleda Moman were returning from a family vacation when an accident changed their lives forever. Instead of retreating, however, they decided to keep moving foward and have raised a wonderful family while making in impact at Allegheny Center Alliance Church on the North Side of Pittsburgh. Today Sean and Loleda join co-hosts Karla and John to talk about their journey and faith that has made them worthy of the title, "urban heroes."
We are restarting our blog-radio show, "Heroes of Katrina." Several years ago, we hosted the show under the generous support of Bonnie Kaye ("Books of Excellence"), who provided support for our efforts.
We are now restarting the show under a thematic of "Ten Years After." What are the heroes written about in the book, "Katrina: A Freight Train Screamin'" doing now? How have their lives changed. What is new and interesting for them?
All these questions are important, as Katrina changed many lives in many ways...As always we provide this show to exhibit a perspective of the resiliency of the human spirit.
As the winds of Katrina blew, lives were changed. People did what they had to do...and their stories reflect the power of human and perseverance and spirit.
What better than ten years later do we explore lives affected and re-equlibrated and re-reflected.
Please join us for an inspirational and reflective discussion on the human spirit as reflected by the changes of lives.

If you're already living the hero life and would like to add your two cents, please call the number above or join us in the chat room. We'd love to hear from you!
P.S. If you've seen the new Avengers AOU movie, join us! We'll be talking about it, too.

Welcome to the Heroes of Katrina: 10 Years After
Pets and Storms
The demographics and statistics are amazing. There are 2.5 animals (cats/dogs…etc. for every American home).
When a population of almost a million evacuates an area and is forced to leave their pets behind…the result is 2.5 million animals…homeless…ownerless…destitute. This was the situation during and after Hurricane Katrina. Indeed the animal issue was largely overlooked by all the rescuing agencies Federal and otherwise.
After Katrina, the animal population was largely overlooked within the rescue and aid infrastructure. All of the guests on Tuesday's show were on the ground and dedicated to the rescue of the animals left behind.
With hurricane season starting June 1st, this show is timely and hopefully can be used as a resource for the animal lovers of the Gulf Coast.
Please join us this very special evening as we welcome our returning guest, Award Winning Author Jenny Pavlovic. We will discuss an extremely important topic....preparing our beloved pets for a hurricane. Jenny Pavlovic, animal rescuer and author of the award winning book, “The 8 States of Hurricane Kate,” will share very valuable advice and insight regarding the necessary precautionary measures needed to safeguard our furry friends and all animal creatures BEFORE a hurricane strikes. Hurricane season is fast approaching - June 1 through November 30, 2015. It's not too early to listen and learn what to do in advance. Please don't wait until it's too late. Feel free to call in and share, comment, question, discuss with Jenny.
It is hard to refer to either of the Jackson couple without mentioning the other. They are truly a team who have distinguished themselves as urban heroes both individually and as a couple. Both are CUBM graduates, with Helen earning her Masters in Organizational Leadership and Andrew working on his bachelor's degree as we broadcast. Helen also serves as the Recruiting Specialist for CUBM, while Andrew serves as building maintenance supervisor for the seminary in which CUBM has classes. Both the Jacksons join Karla and John today to talk about their lives together and their ministry philosophy that has earned them the well-deserved title of urban heroes!
Dr. Lola Thorpe is the pastor of the North Side Institutional Church of God in Christ and her daughter Lisa is the president of the Nonprofit Leadership Training Institute (NLTI). Both have served with distinction in the Pittsburgh community and have been honored for their work. Today the title of "Urban Hero" is added to that list of recognitions. Both ladies will be back-to-back guests on this expanded show.
Vincent’s Italian Cuisine was founded in 1989 by native New Orleanian Vincent Catalanotto. From a large, close Sicilian family, Vincent grew up eating wonderful food prepared by his parents who were both great cooks. Vincent learned to love and appreciate food at an early age, and then spent most of his life working in the service industry, fueling his passion for the restaurant business while allowing him to hone his innate ability to create fabulous meals and to make people happy.
Vincent opened the first of his successful neighborhood restaurants in 1989. The “little Italian place on the side street” quickly became Metairie’s hidden jewel. Vincent developed a menu that showcases the finest and freshest ingredients available (in fact, there are no walk-in coolers or freezers at Vincent’s - produce, seafood, meats and cheeses are delivered fresh daily!)
Vincent opened a new restaurant in 1997 on St. Charles Avenue near the Riverbend, much to the delight of the Uptown community, which has since embraced Vincent’s Italian Cuisine as their favorite neighborhood restaurant.
The Vincent’s restaurants endured the ravages of Katrina and bounced back in excellence. Today they are considered the best Italian restaurants in New Orleans…and some claim the best Italian restaurants in the country. We love the abiance and hospitality.
Gretchen and I have discovered Vincent’s and it has become a home away from home…Vincent greets us by name, and takes care of us as if we were part of the family…We enjoy the hospitality at minimum, on biweekly basis.
Tonight is a rebroadcast of the show Bonnie did Sunday featuring Cary and Gretchen...After the show...we will entertain calls for discussion...
Join us for stimulating conversation!

Karla and John continue with their interviews of the 2015 class of Urban Heroes with their interview of Pastors George and Sandra Russell. The Russells have been married for 54 years and pastors at Temple of God Church in Washington, PA for 27 years. Today the Russells join our co-hosts to talk about life, marriage, raising children and ministry. During the show, one of their children will call in to talk about her parents and their work. Once you listen, you will know why they were nominated and chosen for the latest class of Urban Heroes.
Gavin and....some other people discuss NXT R-Evolution, TLC+Stairs, Raw, and what's coming up for professional wrestling in the first part of 2015 including the Royal Rumble, Ring of Honor, Wrestle Kingdom and more. Listen live and if we get brave or bored we'll take calls. Sorry, Jed.
Ever wondered how you juggle being a local superhero and a parent? Ever wondered how the kids of these caped crusaders feel, watching their parents walk out the door into the dangerous night? Ever wondered about the people who don superhero costumes and visit childrens' hospitals, and the impact they have on the lives of the patients who they visit?
Well, wonder no more, as Rock and Spectre take you on a journey back in time, to hear from the people who matter most: The Kids! We'll have interviews with the children of Real Life Superheroes, we'll be chatting to people who actively work to inspire kids in their communities to live a heroic life, and we'll be talking to those people who donate their time to make the lives of sick children that little bit brighter.
Got a tale you'd like to share with us? Dial in or log on and join us in the chatroom!
Listen in to the audio of our children's book which is a metaphor of a real life story of love, friendship, perseverance and everlasting bonds. Juba Kali narrates and Denise Thompson stars as Tori the caterpillar/butterfly.
The video entitled, “French Quarter Tori and the Red Owl” is an animation for the first book collaboration between Cary and Gretchen. The (as-of-yet) unreleased DVD also features Allie Moffet as Lebeau, the Corgi, from the Lower 9th Ward, Steven Wilson who holds the role of Kendall, the mighty owl from the Pacific North West, who guides these friends, and Juba Kali who performed magnificently as the narrator. A heartwarming story loved by children and adults…
Our guest, following the audio, will be Ms. Denise Thompson and she will share the tale of her thoughts and feelings on bringing the character of Tori to life. Denise is an accomplished actress, salon owner and hair artist, wonderful mother and all around talented woman with a glowing heart and inspirational philosopher on the beauty of daily life. We have extended invites to Allie, Steven, Juba, and Caroline (The book’s illustrator) to call in and join the conversation. You won't want to miss this show.
