SORT BY Relevancy
My guest tonight is author Bob Weintraub, who has been a life-long fan of the Boston Red Sox. He grew up in Dorchester, Massachusetts, just eight miles from the famous Fenway Park. Bob played baseball in college at Brandeis University, and following college, he served two years in the Army where he was stationed in Germany. When his military career ended, he returned to Boston, enrolled at Boston University School of Law, and studied law for three years. After graduation, he went into the law field of labor relations. He practiced for six years in Washington, D.C.and in San Francisco before returning to Boston.
It wasn't until later in his life that Bob tried his hand at fiction writing. His first short story was about Irving, a man who had survived a pogrom in Russia years earlier, and had promised God at the time that he would devote his life to prayer and being a moral and ethical person if he wasn't killed in the attacks. Irving did survive and kept his promise. The problem begins, however, when he is admitted, reluctantly (at the urging of his four children) to a Massachusetts nursing home and feels that it's incumbent upon him to persuade the other residents of the Home to live their lives as he was living his. Irving is loved by most of his fellow residents, but even love can go so far.
His first story was accepted by a distinguished literary magazine in North Carolina called "The Sun," and this was the beginning of Bob's career as a writer.
Tonight we'll hear more about Bob, his writing, his books, his upcoming projects, his great love for the Boston Red Sox, and his great recognition of his work by some very famous people.

Buck Sixx is a country/rock band that stems from generations of family musicians. They all started at an early age playing along with their dads, grandfathers, cousins and uncles. As musicians, they have played with lots of other bands, but the strong family bond has brought them back together to form Buck Sixx. They play original songs written by the band with a blend of Country/Rock. The combination of lyric and music continues to grow the band’s fan base. Brothers, cousins, and Friends they hail from Columbia, Tennessee, just forty miles south of Nashville.. “Buck Sixx’s debut record is one of the strongest freshmen records I’ve ever heard. There truly isn’t a bad song on the record and there isn’t a song that would turn fans off. Buck Sixx successfully showcases who they are as individuals, as a group, as musicians, as vocalists, and as songwriters and it’s a showcase that is uniquely fresh. It’s a package that will allow them to be recognized on many different avenues in the country music industry.” – Thatsmusictome.com
Yes, folks we're almost at the 30 day mark before the premiere of Avengers 2: Age of Ultron and expectations and nerdgasms continue to mount! In the interim, check out the latest episode of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse airing this Saturday at 6pm. For the first "Comic Shoppe" segment, join Dburt, Capt. Kirk and the "Uncanny" Daryll B. as they solve the latest pop/pulp conundrums this week: chatter about the Transformers franchise channeling the Marvel way of doing business; Fox intends to reboot The X-Files with the original actors; Star Trek may return to TV (on CBS) after a ten year hiatus; trailers from the "Governator" and James Bond (Maggie and Spectre films, respectively) hit the net; Jesse Eiseberg shows his Luthor mug.

And now for the fourth quarter, join us for Afronerd Radio with your hosts Dburt and Capt. Kirk starting at 7pm. Topics to be analyzed are: actress, Taraji P. Henson apologizes for her son's exaggerated account of racial profiling; more on the Swiss Alps plane crash and how its appears to have been intentional; what's up with Oprah? The "man" (or is that just male) with 34 children by 17 women and Evelyn Lozado are getting OWN TV shows (huh); how did 60 Minutes cover Africa by only interviewing Whites? And if time permits, we will try to touch on subjects from the last show that we were unable to address. Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
The Patterson–Gimlin film is a famous short motion picture of an unidentified subject the film makers purported to be a "Bigfoot", that was supposedly filmed on October 20, 1967, by Roger Patterson and Robert "Bob" Gimlin on Bluff Creek, a tributary of the Klamath River about 25 road miles north-west of Orleans, California. The film has been subjected to many attempts both to debunk and authenticate it.
Both Patterson and Gimlin have always insisted they encountered and filmed a real Bigfoot, not a man in a costume. Patterson died of cancer in 1972. Patterson's friend, Gimlin, has always denied being involved in any part of a hoax with Patterson. Gimlin mostly avoided publicly discussing the subject from at least the early 1970s until about 2003. Tonight we will discuss the events around the film and what lead up to the famous encounter.
Call it Irish grit. “If you grew up where I grew up,” McGraw recalls, “you were automatically hyphenated either Irish, Polish, or Italian, and your dad worked in the mill, that was a given.” Hailing from a small steel industry town about 50 miles outside of Buffalo, New York, McGraw was raised on Hee-Haw (“We loved Conway Twitty, or at least his haircut”) and rough games of hockey and football. Small for his age and showing little athletic promise, he gravitated towards music, and good thing: “If I’d have stuck with the sports I liked any longer I might have ended up getting my head taken off. We never wore pads, let alone helmets.” Instead, McGraw grew out his hair, picked up a cheap Japanese guitar, and at 13 started a rock band with friends, playing in bars a couple of nights a week—with a note from his mother in hand, in case the cops asked any questions.
As soon as he finished high school, McGraw hightailed it to Los Angeles with rock star dreams and a country sensibility. Wearing out records by Dwight Yoakam and Steve Earle, and “digging through stacks of junk at the Pasadena flea market looking for old Buck Owens and Johnny Cash on vinyl,” he developed his own unique hard-core hillbilly sound.
It’s a crazy life, and McGraw looks upon it with bemused satisfaction in “My So Called Life,” reflecting, “Some days I own this town, other days it shoots me down/Always I’m still hanging round, holdin’ on to hope.” Expertly depicting the driving pace of his “Honky Tonk Life,” McGraw stubbornly continues to hope: “I could quit all this road stuff, go back to my real job, put in a straight 9 to 5/But I love the neon, I love the people, and I love the Honky Tonk Life.”

The Kentucky Derby is not only the most prestigious race in the world but also one of the more challenging for its competitiors. Three-year-olds going farther than they ever have (1 1/4 miles) in front of more people in a race that everyone wants to win has a way of taking a special kind of horse to perform well. The Thomas Herding Technique helps identify which horses are up to the task (and just as important to Brisnet.com & TwinSpires.com players, which aren't). Founded by Kerry Thomas and supported by Pete Denk, THT has helped identify recent Kentucky Derby winners Animal Kingdom, I'll Have Another, and Orb while also pointing to last year's winner, California Chrome, as a key contender (THT's top pick, Danza, finished third). THT is also a full-service bloodstock agency. Visit its site to learn more about its services & read former Derby analysis.
Johnnie Moore is author of Defying ISIS: Preserving Christianity In The Place Of Its Birth and In Your Own Backyard. He is former Vice President for Executive Projects and Media Relations and Campus Pastor at Liberty University.
A Christian genocide at the hands of Islamic extremists is unfolding in the Middle East. Entire Christian populations have been eliminated, and the ultimate aim of ISIS and the Islamic State is to eradicate Christianity.
They are well on their way. Thousands of Christians arrive in refugee camps daily as tents can be seen for miles across the countryside of Jordan, Northern Iraq and Lebanon.
