Freedom For All - The Empowerment Zone - Les Paul Morgan
It emphasizes the empowerment of individuals with disabilities to take control of their lives to the maximum extent possible. The person isn’t a patient, but a consumer that controls the services that are consumed. When I created the empowerment zone, and disability round table shows I had some of the things I was talking about such as an International Network which is a much larger venue to share the independent living movements mission statements to people all around the world so that true inclusion for all would no longer just be a dream but instead a reality!!!
That’s the hope and reason I wanted to create this series of shows to expand everyone’s knowledge including my own for the greater good of society, much as great leaders Martin Luther King, Ed Roberts, Justin Dart, Judy Heumann, and oh so many more unsung heroes of the independent living movement have done!
Tonight I sit here two days from the edge of eternity, which means on December 18 I will have survived 30 years of severe brain trauma and yet as I sit here I want you to all prepared to join with me in a celebration of life, confidence, empowerment, strength, struggle, mobilization, and getting prepared for 2015 – 2014 is whining to a close, yet there is still a chance for great change. Now!!!
The purpose of the empowerment zone is to strengthen you to learn more about your disability rights and heritage to go boldly where no man or woman has ever gone before with a disability to brightly you the future and be part of the change so come with me here on The Empowerment Zone with Les Paul Morgan

On wednesday night 12/3/14 8 pm EST. Some Good Craic welcomes back Bangers and Mash for a CD/VIDEO release party . Bangers and Mash have recently released a new CD titled "Quicksand Cafe' " . I'll be chatting with the band and playing some new tunes off the cd . And during the show I'll be releasing the Video for the song "Quicksand Cafe " we shot during the summer.
Formed in New York in 2003, Bangers and Mash absolutely refuses to define itself as a "unique blend of fiddle and guitar" or "a cutting edge combination of rock and traditional Irish music."
Make no mistake - they are unique, and they do blend fiddle and guitar, along with bass, drums, vocals and various other noise-making items. However, this is not the ubiquitous "Celtic Rock Band" performing the usual Irish Top 40. Perish the thought!
Bangers and Mash is a rare treat... a band of hardworking, talented musicians who perform their own music, their own way. Sure, you might occasionally find a familiar Irish tune dropped into the middle of a rock ballad, and you may even hear something that sounds vaguely like "The Fields of Athenry" now and then. (How "vaguely"? You'll be on the third verse before saying "Wait a minute, I think I know this song!")
What you will hear, from the opening notes of their first song to the last beat of the encore, is original, driving and brilliant songs guaranteed to stick with you the whole way home... and beyond. Songs that make you laugh, dance, think, sing along and come back for more. All delivered in a style that is uniquely Bangers and Mash. The full-time line-up includes Liam Hudock on vocals, whistle and spoons, Carole Anderson on Vocals and Bodhran, Alexandra Adams on fiddle, Chad Herth on electric lead guitar, Seth Lesselbaum on bass, and Anthony Anastase on drums and percussion.
I’m a certified peer support specialist for people with disabilties and a multiple brain injury and aneurysm survivor as well as a survivor of several related operations and procedures. Together, I hope we can bridge the gap to inclusion for everyone with all types of disabilities and that you will be willing to call in and share your stories and ideas on The Empowerment Zone with Les Paul!
I work for a Center for Independent Living which are community-based, cross-disability, non-profit organizations that is designed and operated by people with disabilities. CILs are unique in that they operate according to a strict philosophy of consumer control, wherein people with all types of disabilities directly govern and staff the organization. Centers for Independent Living Provide:
Information and Referral
Individual and Systems Advocacy
Independent Living Skills Training
The Empowerment Zone is a place for all people with any type of disability to come and learn and find common ground and solutions to help empower people with disabilities to find their inner strengths.
This is a positive show based on the IL philosophy which is independent living for all people wishing to better their lives by learning to take charge of their destiny and living their dreams through the independent living movement. Two years ago I came up with the concept for the Empowerment Zone after also hosting on the brain injury radio network show Dream Catchers for over three years now as well.
Not only is the independent living movement very cool, but it’s a way of thinking differently with a disability with bold ideas and a brave new future using the core services of Iindependent Living. If you would like to call in and talk dial 424-243-9540 and press one if you’d like to speak because that shows me your hand is up!

wednesday night 10/29/14 at 8 pm est . Some Good Craic welcomes to the show Kathleen Vesey Fee lead singer of Celtic Cross . I'll be chatting with Kathleen about the new CD Saoirse's Heart and playing some tunes from it.
Those who have been around Celtic music in the Northeast and in the NYC area are no strangers to this hardworking band that has been on top of the scene and on every stage since the early 90s.Celtic Cross keeps reinventing, updating and polishing one of the best festival, party and concert acts you will find in Celtic music today.
Kathleen Fee is the band’s lead singer-songwriter, front-woman, and driving force.

This is Beyond the Airwaves: The Infinity Project, where we go beyond the mainstream media and tackle issues that don't seem so important to the major networks.
There are the commercials that inspire us, make us laugh, and don't show the product until the very end. They're among the best. Some ad campaigns, though, make us wonder...what were the creators high on? We'll take a look at the worst ad campaigns of all time, and one of the guys on BTA already has a beef with that Don't Touch My Dart set of commercials...
Ikari Chaos-San is the founder and creator. Shirley is truly the Oddball Extreme. Janet is our resident Arizona Magician. Tim is the Tokusatsu Master. Heather is Queen Kitty Serenity. Mike the King of Hearts is our video game wizard. We'll also have guest appearances by our friends from the MAD HOUSE, so come and listen in!
Visit our official website at http://beyondtheairwaves.weebly.com and don't forget to join in the conversation on the forums located on our official website. We want you guys and gals, the fans, to tell us what's on your mind and what you feel is important to cover, so let us know what you want to hear.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT 10/15/14 AT 8 PM EST. SOME GOOD CRAIC IS BACK WITH FIDDLER TONY DEMARCO !!!
Tony DeMarco: Irish fiddler. If that sounds slightly off, you have only to listen to the music on this recording to be cured of any preconceptions about the importance of ethnic purity in traditional music. There may have been a time when Irish music in New York City was played exclusively by Irish immigrants and their offspring, while their Italian neighbors strummed mandolins and sang opera. But the Big Apple really is a melting pot, at least for some of its disparate immigrant elements. Before World War II it really wasn’t very common for Italian and Irish Americans to marry each other. By the 1950s, however, this kind of ethnic mixing was fairly normal in Tony’s native Brooklyn, where the Italians and Irish lived side by side and attended the same parish churches.
Tony was born on May 20, 1955, the second of three children raised in East Flatbush by Paul DeMarco and his wife, the former Patricia Dempsey. Paul, a grandson of Italian immigrants, was a teenage lightweight boxing star who turned down an offer to turn pro and work with lightweight champ Paddy “Billygoat” DeMarco in order to pursue a more conventional career on Wall Street. Tony’s maternal grandfather Jimmy Dempsey was a New York City cop and a son of Irish immigrants who married Philomena “Minnie” Fenimore, one of several Italian-American siblings who married into Brooklyn Irish families.
Musical ability runs on both sides of Tony’s family. During the Prohibition years, Minnie Dempsey’s Italian immigrant father ran a speakeasy in East New York, where he played the piano and mandolin. Tony’s paternal uncle Louie DeMarco was a singer who performed with 1950s doo-wop groups, including “Dickie Dell and the Ding Dongs.”
this Wednesday night 10/1/14 at 8 pm I'll be chatting with David McGrath from the band IRELAND - Based out of Boston ,Mass.
Ireland the band..
Formed in the winter of 2013 with the idea of blending all phases of Irish music into a kick ass show.
One person was heard to have said it's like listening to the Wolfe tones jamming with the chieftains.
Irish music is all about the craic and the culture that is infused with every note that's played and sung.
When you attend our shows leave your troubles at the door and come on in.
Your sure to leave with a smile on your face!!!
Laura Stinchfield - Animal Communicator with show producer Ai Kusuhara will interview interesting animals and their people.
Laura will also open up the lines for listeners to call in to ask questions to their animals.
Be prepared to be enlightened, amazed, to laugh and maybe cry as you are opened up to the inner lives, thoughts, and feelings of the world's animals.
