    The Tough Talk Christian Radio Show

    in Christianity

    The Tough Talk Christian Radio Show with Host Tony Gambone and His Guest John Fogg and Naomi J Hardy:


    John Fogg - By the Grace of God, chronicles the life experiences of the author which on several occasions, could have resulted in his death. He assumed his survival was as a result of luck or skill or a combination of both until the mid-1990's, when a spiritual reality began to unfold in his life. Ultimately, his spiritual rebirth led him to the Bible which came to life within the context of his newborn spiritual awareness. In the book, he describes a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ that is both touching and inspirational. He believes that relationship is freely available to all that open their hearts and minds to that possibility. The author's hope is that readers who believe in God will have their faith strengthened and those who don't, will open their minds and hearts to the peace and love that comes with a personal relationship with Jesus. Devine intervention happens!


    Naomi J Hardy - national speaker and a coach on relationships and successfully managing change. Particularly your romantic relationship. Speaking to individuals, couples and organizations, I have helped many married couples find joy, reclaim the romance, and experience more trust, more love, more communication and better sex in their relationship. I speak and coach from a faith based perspective, while being very relevant in today's world. My background includes 25 years human resource management, training & development. I realized the closed door conversations, the loss in productivity, the rock star employee that all of a sudden could not perform was a result of problems in a relationship about 90% of the time. I also realized I'd spent more time coaching relationships than managing HR.

    in Music

    As is a songwriter Tarence is known for his clear and honest style of writing and as a producer he creatively brings out the message of the song with the musical elements that surround it.  Tarence is the owner of Levite Music Group LLC, a record label dedicated to Christian based music and he is also the VP of Qhuas Fitness, a Christian based fitness company.


    Tarence's story started when his young parents learned that their newborn child had a heart defect and needed surgery. Through much prayer his parents dedicated Tarence to The Lord and God continues to show him favor even today.


    Tarence was born and raised in queens, NY and began playing the drums at an early age with guidance from his father who was also a drummer.  As his talent matured he began playing for countless churches, groups and solo artists, including a staff position as a percussionist at Harlem School of the Arts.  After a three year musical director position with recording artist By Dezign, Tarence moved to the audio engineering and production side of the music industry.  He continued his passion for music, however only on a part time basis when he released his first project, Instrumental Offerings in 2002.  During that release Tarence was laid off from his job as a technical recruiter at a well know firm. This is when he began to realize that God had plans for him to work full time in the music industry.


    God has blessed Tarence with experience working with countless established and up-and-coming artists/musicians giving him a growing perspective on what works.  Become a part of this amazing journey by connecting with Tarence and the projects he’s a part of.

    Spirituality versus Religion

    in Prayer

    So put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander. Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation— if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good. As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious, you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. ... 2 Peter 2:1-25

    900 Voices, beautiful song/video promises to make you smile, and maybe even cry

    in Spirituality

    Grammy® winning composer, Laura Sullivan, called out to the world to join her in a powerful plan to make a music video. Her request was simple. Take a video of yourself singing her song We Are Love and send it to her. The response was overwhelming.


    900 Voices, promises to make you smile, and maybe even cry. 938 people, 27 languages, 1 song.


    People from Australia, Brazil, Israel, Croatia, Korea, Kenya, India, and many other countries, participated by making videos on their cell phones and sending them to Laura and will make you so happy. Elena from Bulgaria, still in her hospital gown, sings and sweetly kisses her newborn son. A group of children in Uganda, who were once homeless, sing and dance like they are the richest kids in the world. A fire department of tough guys from New Jersey gives it their all.


    The result: EPIC. 27 languages included in one song and video about love and unity. The video was released on April 9, 2014. It received over 50,000 views, and was accepted on the Ellen DeGeneres online Tube channel the first week of its release.


    “I was hoping to get a lot of participation, but what I received back was beyond my wildest dreams. People from all over the world and from every walk of life sent in incredible videos.  Watching them moved me to tears. I hope I have honored these hundreds of wonderful people by including them in the video.” says Laura.


    The resulting video, with the blending of the many voices, faces, and languages, creates a powerfully moving experience that shines a light on the unifying power of love in our world.


    50% of the music proceeds of 900 Voices are going towards the national nonprofit Little Kids Rock. This organization partners with economically disadvantaged school districts to run music programs. To date they have served more than 325,000 children in 13 states.
