Yes, I had to shout-out Vel Lewis regarding his multiple talents! Keyboardist, Organist (actually, a multi-instrumentalist), Composer, Arranger, Producer and Vocalist - guess I need not explain further ;)
Our versatile and unstoppable guest was born in The City of Brotherly Love - and it didn't take long in his professional life for other artists to demonstrate how MUCH they DID love Vel Lewis. While still VERY young, he was asked to join a televised Jazz program in Philadelphia. This led to studio work - and it paved the way for an association with Ira Tucker, Sr., lead singer with the Dixie Hummingbirds. Vel found himself on the Paul Simon song, "Love Me Like a Rock" and on Stevie Wonder's "Jesus Children of America."
Meanwhile, Vel was in a group that was growing in popularity - The Futures. They were signed to Philly International Records and performing alongside Grover Washington Jr., The O'Jays and The Supremes. The Futures had a name change, but that surely did not affect Vel's popularity - HE was now working with more A-list talent - household names.
Along the way, he found the time to compose music for "The Sopranos", "Fresh Prince of Bel Air", "Mad About You" and more. And he was able to focus on his own music for the career that he wished to have for VEL LEWIS :) After all those years of making sure other artists sounded great when he added his personal touch, it was time to concentrate on what he could do as leader of the band. You'll see his discography when you visit Vel Lewis Dot Com. And you'll hear tracks from "Colors Of Soul" when Vel drops by on 7/8. Once you hear his music, you'll know that he made a "sound" decision! Please join us - we've got some surprises in store for you on this show ;)
Noelle M. Meade-Izzi is "The Pollinator Queen." Her utter delight and passion for bees, birds, butterflies and bats makes her their leading advocate at a time when mysterious declining hive census, diminishing habitat and various other threats loom large on the horizon. And when our way of living is endangered because these pollinators are essential to our food chain, we face a global natural crisis.
On this show, Noelle will offer advice on:
How to build a hummingbird-friendly backyard habitat
How to prepare your yard as "perfect pollination central" this spring
How best to protect and support what she calls the POWER POLLINATORS---bees, birds, butterflies and bats
How to get children engaged in the preservation and appreciation of the POWER POLLINATORS
How you can become a spiritual pollinator yourself - a bridge between nature and human nature
Jim and Jennifer welcome Noelle Meade-Izzi to the show. Noelle is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, author, speaker, award-winning graphic designer and renowned Natu-journalist. Her book, The Hummingbird That Answered My Heart’s Calling, is a testament to the power of nature and its ability to teach, heal, and re-connect humans to their true human nature. This gift book is filled with over 40 full-color photographs and a custom designed book cover and interior pages. To her delight, a segment on her experience with Artemis, the hummingbird, was featured in the United States Humane Society (USHS) publication, “All Animals.” But Noelle’s commitment to nature goes well beyond her work as a Natu-journalist. She is leading a crusade to recognize and protect the four POWER POLLINATORS ---bees, birds, butterflies and bats. As the Pollinator Queen, she is a special advocate for the pollinators, offering advice on how to build a hummingbird-friendly backyard habitant, ways to “give back” to the bee nation, methods for protecting and supporting these essential creatures that are critical to our food chain. Noelle’s immediate focus is the bee population which has been decimated by a mysterious die-off not fully identified by scientists. Her goal is to help people see bees for the valued partners they are: harmonious, integrated, unified creatures working tirelessly for the greater good. She unceasingly works to educate as many adults and children as possible, using her company, Beenevolent® as a tool for funding more research; to serve and give back. Noelle perceives the loss of any aspect of nature a spiritual loss as well as a natural one. She spreads her message by Spiritual Pollination.
Within each of us is the capacity to connect with the Universe, with Nature, and with our Higher Self. Through the eyes of nature, one is made privy to the profound goodness that pervades all that exists and co-exists.
The Universe is ALWAYS listening and responding to our feelings and thoughts (our heart’s calling). Be open to the unique ways in which God, the Universe, The Supreme Intelligence (however we choose to label it) communicates with you…teachers come in all shapes, sizes AND species. We simply need to quiet our incessant mind-chatter and listen, for all sentient beings have something to share in supporting our journey towards becoming a more evolved and self-aware human race.
EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED. The pervasive interconnectedness (the innate giving and receiving) that exists within nature is a lesson for humans to learn—cherish, respect and preserve all life forms, for everything affects everything that in turn affects everything…
Open your eyes to seeing the EXTRAORDINARY within the ORDINARY and open your heart to new ways of appreciating the oh-so-omnipresent Universe that surrounds and bind all that we are.

I'm a songwriter/recording artist/novelist, who specializes in adventure stories set in exotic locales. I have a special love for the tropics--jungles and beaches--which is reflected in both my novels and personal life. (In the form of hobbies like breeding parrots, growing orchids, and keeping saltwater reef aquariums.)
I travel widely, striving to write about the places I visit in a way that will make readers feel they've been there too. I've always seen this world as a place of wonder, surpassed only by the people who inhabit it and it's divine Creator.
She feels like a misfit. Who is she? Where does she belong? Is she Lexa, Alexandra, or someone else?
Forced to commit a crime, she flees south of the Border--and a vindictive bounty hunter follows her.
Will she escape? Find redemption? Learn who she really is and where she belongs?
The answer lies hidden in a tiny seaside village where wandering hummingbirds rest their wings.
