I recently read an article that stated that roughly 300,000 veterans have died from agent orange, that's roughly 5 times as many as
the 58,000 that died in combat there! These are astonishing figures. 11 million gallons of AO was sprayed over 200 million acres and much of it in areas used as large bases for
US troops. This has put over 300 million Vietnam vets and their families at risk. One soldier put it this way, "you know we all took a bullet there, some of us just didn't know it". That bullet, that wound has never healed. It has never even been recognized as a wound. When will he people and the government of the United States begin to realize the bad hand we were dealt? When will the government realize that perhaps there should be 300,000 names on that wall, with plenty of space left over in Washington, DC? Our group is not about posting photos, bringing up good or bad memories, it's about solidarity in holding the chemical companies, the US government and the Veterans Administration responsible for what they have done to us. There have been many injustices imposed upon various peoples, factions and groups. We are one faction, one group that has been overlooked. Isn't it about time we
did something about this? I am going to dedicate our next broadcast to establish a march on Washington DC and our cause that he did in Selma, Alabama. March with US Mr. president!

Lisa Hodges is the quiet, reserved first lady of the fast growing Pilgrim Baptist Church; and unbeknown to those around her, her quietness is a direct reflection of her discontent life. Charles, her husband, has his focus on climbing the ministerial ladder--and the many women standing in line to fulfill his every need and desire--that he fails to acknowledge his wife's growing frustration. Lisa, the mother of three, has gotten lost in the lives of her children--and in the role of being a first lady--and has long ago given up on obtaining any happiness or success of her own. Believing that her only joy came from her weekly meetings with her other first lady friends, the very sexy and talented Alex Mitchell arrives at her church, causing Lisa to feel her only happiness came in a brown-eyed, caramel-skinned, muscled, 6-foot frame. The two soon begin a sexy, whirlwind affair that results in a forbidden, shared love and an unwanted pregnancy. On the other hand, with secrets of his own, Alex threatens to expose them all, one secret at a time. Will Lisa be able to deny her love for Alex and fix the mess she's gotten herself into? Or will her actions bring down her husband, the church, and her family?
We have got another great show for you today. The Bay Area is sure to know this veteran performer for this area. He is Blues Guitarist Augusta Lee Collings, a member of the West Coast Blues Hall of Fame. He has performed with such local legends as Frankie Beverly and Maze and the Pointer Sisters. Some of the many others are Lighting Hopkins and Herbie Hancock. Now better known for his blues, country and folk music he still finds the time to write and create his unique sound. That is something you will hear from his latest CD, The Game. We will play music from that CD.
We are also going to talk to Lawrence Rasheed from G.R.I.O.T. (Greatness Rediscovered in Our Time) about the “Million Fathers March” coming up in September. So…stop on by and enjoy another Real Talk subject show.

"Number one: Put God first," he said. "Put God first in everything you do."
"Everything you think you see in me, everything I’ve accomplished, everything you think I have – and I have a few things," said Washington. "Everything that I have is by the grace of God. Understand that. It’s a gift."
In leading up to those remarks, the star of such films as Malcolm X, Training Day, Glory, The Book of Eli, and The Equalizer, said, “When I was young and started really making it as an actor, I came and talked to my mother and said, ‘Mom, did you think this was going to happen? I’d be so big and I’ll be able to take care of everybody and I can do this and I can do that.’"
"She said, ‘Boy, stop it right there, stop it right there, stop it right there!" he continued. "She said, ‘If you only knew how many people been praying for you.’ How many prayer groups she put together, how many prayer talks she gave, how many times she splashed me with holy water to save my sorry behind."
Towards the end of his speech, Washington repeated some of the comments he has made over the years about reliance on God. He reminded that crowd that no matter how much you attain in material goods, "you will never see a U-Haul behind a hearse."
He also told the graduates of the small, private, historically black college in New Orleans, "I pray that you put your slippers under your bed tonight, so that when you wake up in the morning you have to get on your knees to reach them."
“And while you’re down there, say thank you," he said. "Thank you for grace, thank you for mercy, thank you for understanding, thank you for wisdom, thank you for parent...
Mel Skahan lives in Toppenish Washington and is an enrolled member of the Yakama Nation. Mel worked for the United States Forest Service from 1988 – 1995 in the Wind River and Mt. Adams Ranger Districts. He has also worked security in the past and currently works for the Yakama Nation Forestry. He has not always been a believer. He was raised in the woods by his great, great, grandfather, who would keep all of the kids in the woods all summer at his camp in a closed area of the Yakama Reservation. It was there that Mel heard stories of Bigfoot. Mel worked in Bigfoot country in while working for the Forest Service. Back during those days, Mel laughed at the stories. He never really believed the stories, until he got to thinking about things from the past. When he started working for the Yakama Nation, he started seeing signs of the creature; tracks, hair, smell, and even sightings. He had visuals starting 9 years ago. He went on expeditions with BFRO when he was a member. He has been on other private expeditions with close friends he has made while on outings. Mel now does all of the bigfoot reports on the Yakama Reservation; there are only 3 individuals that listen to reports. With every new encounter, Mel’s way of reporting and researching change.

2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the band that drove the 1970 Billboard smash “Vehicle” to the top of the charts: The Ides Of March. Last Band Standing is a perfectly executed celebration of The Ides Of March history and a showcase of a band still in their prime at 50 years deep. Original members Jim Peterik (also of Survivor fame and songwriter behind “Eye Of The Tiger,” and well as many other chart-toppers), Bob Bergland, Larry Millas, and Mike Borch started as group of teenagers whose love of Rock N Roll and R&B led them to showcases and bandstands around their native Chicago, eventually hitting it big nationally with “Vehicle.” The first four audio discs contain material from across their storied career. Included are Warner Brothers albums Vehicle and Common Bond, first-time-ever releases of the best of their RCA releases World Woven and Midnight Oil ,Spirit Of Chicago. Rarities like “Like It Or Lump It” and “No Two Ways About It” Billboard charter You Wouldn’t Listen . The audio portion is completed with brand new Ides of March tracks, including the brass driven “Who I Am,”Too Far To Turn Around,” and the aptly titled “Last Band Standing,” featuring Steve Cropper – the iconic songsmith of Booker T and the MG’s and organizer of the Blues Brothers. Disc five is a live DVD of The Ides Of March performing 15 of their most iconic songs in an eleven camera shoot at the House Of Blues, Chicago on May 31, 2014. This DVD boasts a slew of extras: archival footage from their TV appearances in the 70's, new interviews, a look behind-the-scenes, a photo collage spanning 50 years ,an exciting new music video for the title track “Last Band Standing.” Showing no signs of slowing down, The Ides Of March, who continue to tour to this day, are truly worthy of the title Last Band Standing. ?
