    Producer of ESPN 'The Sports Reporters' - Joe Valerio - Second to None (author)

    in Sports

    From yesterday's (4/22/2015) live broadcast of The Thomas Loop Radio Show on WJJL 1440-AM.  The Thomas Loop Radio Show on WJJL 1440-AM is on facebook and twitter (@TheThomasLoop) 


    Joseph Valerio - Producer of The Sports Reporters on ESPN; author of Second to None (The Relentless Drive and Impossible Dream of the Super Bowl Bills) - by Triumph Books 


    Overview


    In Second to None, author Joe Valerio tells the incredible story of the Buffalo Bills: the perpetual almost-champions and their indomitable fans. The Bills' incredible skill and teamwork on the field was matched only by their single-minded determination as, in the four years spanning 1991 to 1994, the team won four consecutive conference championships, and lost four consecutive Super Bowls. The peaks and nadirs of their record reflect a fascinatingly dynamic, uneven, and—at times—uncontrollable array of talents. Valerio renders in sharp detail how the Bills' unique culture was formed by an unlikely ecosystem of world-class athletes hunkered down in bleak western New York, far away from the celebrity playgrounds of other pro teams. Meticulously researched and carefully crafted, this one-of-a-kind look inside the Super Bowl-era Buffalo Bills is based on extensive interviews with the key players, coaches, and management, including Hall of Famers Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, Bruce Smith, as well as coach Marv Levy, general manager Bill Polian, and many others, including players and coaches from opposing teams, and the reporters who covered them.

    Boston’s Cycling Craze: 1880-1900

    in Fitness

    Sometimes in our fast paced world it’s difficult to imagine our communities of the past.  Historian Rui Santos detailed an average trip by horse and carriage from Boston to Plymouth in the 1830s lasting some 10 hours.  Fifty years later a new form of transportation would take center stage: the bicycle.  


    And it was during that time period between 1880 and 1900 that the intersection of race, athleticism and cycling came to mean new forms of freedom and expression.


    Lorenz Finison’s remarkable new book, Boston’s Cycling Craze paints the landscape of how a host of visionaries took to the streets and byways … all for the glory of the bicycle. Black, White, Asian and Biracial…they are all in the book and all chronicled in detail during these pioneer years of cycling.  


    Come explore with us as we turn back the clocks to the golden age of bicycles during and era worth noting in the annuls of American history.

    in Health

    Hosted by Marti Oakley


    In our continuing series in coordination with Citizens Commission on Human Rights, tonight we are pleased to have Dr. Jeffrey A. Schaler as our guest to discuss the myth of mental illness. 


    Jeffrey A. Schaler, PhD, a psychologist in Maryland, has written extensively on addiction and social policy as well as having taught thousands of undergraduate and graduate students about the myth of mental illness over the past 22 years at American University in Washington, D.C., Johns Hopkins University, and community colleges in Maryland and Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia. He is a well known and popular international speaker. A close friend and colleague for many years of the late professor emeritus of psychiatry Thomas Szasz, Professor Schaler is currently working on his sixth and seventh books, both focused on why behavior can never be a disease. His book entitled Addiction Is a Choice was the centerpiece of a John Stossel ABC News 20/20 special and his book entitled Peter Singer Under: The Moral Iconoclast Faces His Critics won the American Library Association book of the year in Philosophy in 2010. He has three granddaughters and he lives with "Scout," his six month old German Shepherd, in Howard County, Maryland. His website is at www.schaler.net .
