    in Politics

    Americans are largely ignorant of the history of Israel and so tend to view the current Arab-Israeli conflict completely out of context. It takes the horror of sustained Israeli massacres like Cast Lead and "Protective" Edge to get them to look at the problem from a human perspective where Palestinians are seen as human beings. That makes this the best time in history to awaken them to the ugly reality of what Israel is and the crimes it routinely commits.

    Alison Weir has dedicated herself to educating Americans through her organization If Americans Knew and the more recent Council for the National Interest. Having found that few Americans know the real history of the foundation of Israel, she wrote a short book explaining the role of the United States in the establishment of Israel in violation of international law. The shocking story is the topic of this episode of Taking Back America.

    This show will be rebroadcast on October 25 at 9 AM PST/ 12 PM EST on the Star Com Radio network.

    Take Back America for the People is an educational nonprofit whose mission is to explain the true costs of corporate control of the US government.

    MacKenzie Blues Band, Generation Blues Experience, Bob Corritore & Sena Ehrhardt

    in Music

    Out of Ontario, Canada comes the MacKenzie Blues Band. Consisting of classically trained vocalist, Tara MacKenzie, guitarist Trevor MacKenzie, bassist Joel Dawson & drummer Mike Weir, they have just released their sophomore album Slam! Bam!, containing 12 originals.  The band has traveled to Memphis for the IBC twice and we will discuss their careers and their music.

    Generation Blues Experience is the joining of 14-year old Ray Goren, who has played guitar at the Chicago Blues Festival and with Buddy Guy and more.  he was introduced to 80-year old bluesman, Jamie Bluesboy Powell and septuangenerian harpist Sammy Lee.  The three were introduced a few years agao and their musical talents meshed, and Generation Blues Band was formed. We'll talk about how their music bridges the generational gap and where they hope to go in the near future.

    Bob Corritore needs no introduction.  Maybe an explanation as to why it has taken so long to bring Bob on the show; well I interviewed him for American Blues News a number of years ago, he has visited during my IBC shows and somehow,my brain turned that into him having appeared on a Monday show!  When I realized my mistake, I reached out and Bob accepted.  We'll look at how it all began some 40 years ago and then also chat with Bob about his take on the Blues World today as compared to when he was sharing the stage with the many legends who are no longer with us. We'll share some of the mus from Bob's latest, Taboo.

    Finally, Sena Ehrhardt returns for COUCH KID NEW MUSIC for her new album, Live My Life.  Sena originally sat on The Couch back in May 2013, so we will find out what the last year has brought to this wonderful artist.

    Live Your Music - Margaux Joy DeNador and Guest Merl Saunders, Jr. 10/01/14

    in Lifestyle

    My guest for 10/01/14 is Merl Saunders, Jr.

    Music is a birthright for San Francisco native Merl Saunders Jr.

    Merl, the namesake of legendary keyboardist Merl Saunders, grew up in the heart of the Bay Area music scene with other well known “music families” like the Grateful Dead, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and the Gospel Hawkins family.

    From his first tour with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, to subsequent gigs with Michael Jackson, Robert Cray, David Crosby, and Frank Zappa, Merl developed a unique ability to excel in the music business.

    As Director of Marketing and Artist Relations at Gibson Guitars, and as Senior Marketing Coordinator and Artist Relations with Dean Markley Strings, he led creative teams to produce successful campaigns and endorsements for many top GRAMMY® winners.

    In 1994, Merl produced Gibson’s 100th Anniversary Celebration. Pulling together talent, Merl brought to the stage Country Joe and the Fish, Little Feat, Greg Kihn, Gregg Allman, Elvin Bishop, Hot Tuna, Moby Grape, and Bob Weir, as well as his dad, Merl Sr.

    In July 2000, Merl was named Executive Director of the San Francisco Chapter of the Recording Academy. His mission was to help to promote music and arts education. Under his leadership, the chapter realized a 10 percent increase in membership annually, and achieved a greater audience in the music business.

    In early 2013 Fenix Supper Club opened in San Rafael, CA and Merl was named Executive Director of Fenix Entertainment Group. Merl's objective, along with Fenix owner Laura van Galen, is to expand the Bay Area music scene by creating a state-of-the-art venue for live performances along with the technology to record and share music by streaming it to the world.

    Is Mental Health at the root of the Domestic Violence Issue with Athletes?

    in Lifestyle

    Things within in the NFL are getting worse with new issues of domestic violence by players popping up every day. Arizona Cardinals back up running back Jonathan Dwyer can now add his name to the list of athletes, (including Adrian Peterson, Ray Rice, Greg  Hardy and Ray McDonald) who are being accused of domestic violence after he allegedly broke the nose of his girlfriend.

    With the list of these type of incidents increasing, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is coming under heavy fire and the question is being raised of if there is a growing issue of mental health among NFL players that are causing these types of incidents. Also, we'll examine why similar incidents by athletes like Hope Solo and Johnny Weir aren’t getting the same amount of outrage by the public and the media. 

    To give us all insights on this issue will be CNN contributor and former ESPN editor Keith Reed. Tune in this Saturday at 10am for the discussion.
