On Sunday's broadcast of "It's Marvellous," Derrick will discuss current events like Taraji P. Henson of "Empire" hosting "SNL" last Saturday night, more updates of the verdict of Boston Marathon bomber found guilty and the tragedy of 100-plus Kenyan Christian students, shot to death in Kenya by terrorists.
We start our new series "Throwback Thursday" to an interview we did in December 2013.
With Saturday Night Live celebrating it's 40th anniversay, many people may not know the show had an African-American female writer on staff when the show started. Sylvia Traymore Morrison was the first to break barriers on the historic show. She also helped roast "The Greatest of All Time" Muhammad Ali and has opened for legends Gladys Knight, Chaka Khan, The Temptations, and Cher.
We talked to Morrison about her time on SNL and working with some of the best talent around.

Welcome to the latest broadcast of Afronerd Radio's Mid Week in Review show featuring Capt. Kirk and Dburt airing this Wednesday at 7:30pm EST. The current event issues to be extrapolated this (mid) week are: our impressions of the highly anticipated (and ultimately uneventful) return of comedian Eddie Murphy to SNL's 40th anniversay special; during a recent visit to HuffPost Live, FOX correspondent, Geraldo Rivera weighs in on Hip Hop's negative influence on Black and Brown folk; we try our best to bring our best assessment of President Obama's proposal to go to war against ISIS/ISIL. Can one truly go to war against an idea?; Just how realistic is a human expedition going to Mars reaching fruition within our lifetime?; Awkward Black Girl creator, Issa Rae posits that TV's capitulation to diversity is purely a profit driven exercise; twitter followers show their disdain for an anti-Obama scene in the second episode of FOX's Empire; and lasltly, Dburt laments the passive-aggressive circumstances behind the current cultural climate relating to ageism. Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
Victoria Jackson joins me to talk about the controversy surrounding her attendance at last weekends SNL 40th anniversary show. Immediately after the show ended, media outlets were quick to point out that Jackson had been excluded from the show because of her political views. The only problem with that narrative was the fact that Victoria was indeed part of the show. Former member of the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force Lt. Steve Rogers will also be here to talk about the latest on ISIS. Of course we'll have all the latest political news as well. Join us Saturday starting at Noon ET, or listen to the archive at your convenience.
