Norman Connors is an American jazz drummer, composer, arranger, producer, and headliner, who has led some influential jazz and R&B groups. He had some big R&B hits of the day, especially in the area love ballads and songs with a positive statement in both titles and lyrics, including “You Are My Starship”, “Betcha By Golly Wow” featuring Phyllis Hyman and from his last release, entitled “Star Power”, “Rock With You”.
Connors became interested in jazz as a child, and began playing drums early, once sitting in for Elvin Jones at a John Coltrane performance he attended while in middle school. Connors studied music at Temple University and Juilliard; his first recording was on Archie Shepp’s 1967 release, Magic of JuJu. He played with Pharaoh Sanders for the next few years until signing with Cobblestone Records in 1972 and releasing his first record as a bandleader. In the mid-1970s, Connors, although fronting some great jazz recordings with Carlos Garnett, Gary Bartz, Dee Dee Bridgewater and Herbie Hancock, began focusing more on R&B tunes, and had several US hits with songs featuring vocalists such as Michael Henderson, Jean Carn, and Phyllis Hyman. The most successful of these was “You Are My Starship”. Dee Dee Bridgewater also performed with him on the jazz album “Love from the Sun”. His more recent work, “Star Power”, has seen him operating more in the vein of smooth jazz and urban crossover music featuring Howard Hewett, Bobby Lyle, Ray Parker, Jr, Peabo Bryson, Michael Henderson, and Antoinette.
It's such a privilege to have the friendship of Norman Woods - who is also known by his Jazz Poet moniker. He has changed it a few times but this current name will stick (I'm convinced!) N-Side The Healer seems right. Especially when you get to know Norman :) From the San Francisco Bay area, he is also a screenwriter and a music publisher. And has had epiphanies in his life that beg to be shared. Like homelessness. And true psychological challenges. In his poetry, N-Side shares those struggles as well as his triumphs. He asks questions - and sometimes he answers them himself. But he wants US to think. Way beneath the surface. Norman's not much for "surface." When you've been on the street, you get to see people at their best and worst. He has never forgot that lesson or any other that he has learned. Hear it for yourself via "Living in the Poetry Hotel" - we'll hear three tracks from this latest project by our beloved friend.

So I took Emily under my (Angel) wing – and now, we offer this weekly show to help you create a better life.
Maybe you are stuck because of a past life or a soul contract . . . or maybe it’s a hidden belief system or multi-lifetime vow of suffering. . . You have to know what’s holding you back before you can release it and heal your life.
After you’ve discovered what you need to release, then you must work to create the vibrational alignment for what you want in your life.
I want to see everyone live an Empowered and Inspired Life – and this means YOU!
Because I had so many people telling me “I am utterly unhappy in my life. I hate my job. I’m lonely. I have no money, and I really do want change. But I cannot afford to see an Intuitive or a Coach” – Emily and I teamed up to bring you Conscious Creator Coaching – your FREE Weekly Conscious Coaching Session.
If you are ready to become a Conscious Creator in your own life – I am ready to show you the way.
As an Intuitive Coach, I can look at your present path and determine if you are in alignment with what you desire. And if you’re not, I can give you the steps to create the alignment that you need to create the life you desire!

Ferguson is a majority black city whose police force is 94% white.

The Taylor Report as aired 18 Aug. 2014, from Toronto, Canada community radio: "We are joined by Norman Otis Richmond, veteran of the struggle against racism on this continent. ... Richmond reminds us that Missouri had a long history of legal segregation. Richmond makes clear that Black leaders have to avoid the role of “buffer” for the White power structure of state and federal governments, and that it is time to resume the struggle for affirmative action to correct injustice that began with slavery.

Reporter Michael Volpe joins us to update the story of Norman Hughes, a Korean & Viet Nam war vet being held against his will in an assisted living center, endorsed by the Memphis VA Center. Mr. Volpe initially investigated and reported on the abuse of Hughes, August 1, 2014 on the Daily Caller.
We will also be discussing the "Orwellian recklessness of both family and probate court, corruption on the part of Guardian ad Litem and other professionals, the media's reluctance to report on it because of the personal nature he said/she said nature of the story, all of which leads to systemic corruption."
Mr. Volpe is one of those rare reporters willing to actually look at the growing abuses of family and probate courts, and to report it.
Chicago-based writer Michael Volpe spent more than a decade in finance before becoming a freelance journalist. His work has appeared in such national publications as the Daily Caller, FrontPage Magazine, CounterPunch, and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference Newsletter.

The chaos comes on the same day Rev. Al Sharpton lead a peaceful rally in the town.
Addressing a congregation in Ferguson on Sunday,Rev. Sharpton blasted the release by police of a video purportedly showing Michael Brown robbing a store shortly before the unarmed man was shot and killed by a police officer.
On Food Men and Secrets--Chef Myron Norman confronts the Ferguson, Missouri shooting in a different light. In this powerful upcoming show Chef Myron uses his own history of street life to point out what many blacks tend to overlook.

Christian Hip Hop--The Churches last Hope?
Join us for part two of another dynamic session--should churches be more receptive to "Holy Hip Hop"? With millions of church leaders seeking ways to reach youth--many are failing. So, if the world's version of hip hop is reaching the youth today--why can't Christian artists use their talents to reach a dying generation. Tonight on Kindred Spirits Live join other artists as we confront the relevancy of Hip Hop and the Church today.
*Kindred Spirits: A caller driven program with intense discussions pushing the church to face more relevant issues. Thursday nights 10PM EST. (9PM CT / 7PM PDT) www.kljnradio.com (347) 237-5342
