Media Nite Radio welcomes to the airwaves Kevin Chalfant. Music fans know Kevin best from his time as lead singer for the uber popular group, Journey for a limited run.
Chalfant's first national success came when he joined the group 707 in 1982. With Chalfant on lead vocals, the band enjoyed its biggest hit, "Mega Force", which peaked at #12 on Billboard 's Mainstream Rock chart but soon after they disbanded.
In 1984, Chalfant joined the band Steel Breeze. He recorded one album with the band, Heart on the Line, before leaving in 1985.
Chalfant later formed The Storm in 1990 with guitarist Josh Ramos and (former) Journey members Ross Valory (bass), Gregg Rolie (keys), and Steve Smith (drums). Journey, a multi-platinum band that was also no stranger to internal conflict, had undergone several personnel changes over the years. As Journey was splintering, The Storm was brewing.
Released by Interscope Records in late 1991, The Storm hit the album charts and the band's first single, "I’ve Got A Lot To Learn About Love" surged well into the Top 40 of the Hot 100. Faring even better at Mainstream Rock radio, the single peaked at #6 on the national Billboard charts, and its follow-up, "Show Me The Way" went to #22. That spring, the band went on a major US tour with Bryan Adams and opened for Peter Frampton. When the band was ready to release the second album, the label was emerged in the genre of rap. Therefore, when the album was finally released in 1996, the band was no longer viable.
In 1993, Journey came calling but by 1995, Steve Perry decided to return to the band leaving Chalfant out.
After some time off, Chalfant put out his first solo album and now is a member of The Voices of Rock.
Kevin will be at Wheeling Island Hotel, Casino and Racetrack in West Virginia. Get your tickets here:

A CBS News video interview with crooked lobbyist Jack Abramoff explains how he influenced Congress for years, and how this kind of corruption still continues. He explains how he “bought” your Senators and Representatives; how he had Congressional staffers reporting to him instead of to their own bosses!
Drug companies, of course, are the BIGGEST political lobby, and political lobbying is one of the primary reasons why the drug companies are controlling nearly the entire health industry. Lobbyists, by definition, "conduct activities aimed at influencing public officials and especially members of a legislative body on legislation." This is Big Business doing what it does best: using its power and money to manipulate and manage your health in a way that will increase their bottom line.
It has been reported that the pharmaceutical industry spent $1.5 BILLION lobbying Congress in the last decade. We will be sharing information that will demonstrate the use of fear and unconstitutional mandates in an effort to control the American populace

Muddling through the busyness of the holidays and maintaining "normal" day-to-day life during the holidays can be difficult for many people. Family responsibilities, work schedules, entertainment adventures all add to the stress caused by this time of year. Being able to do it all from a wheelchair makes it even more complicated. Purpose Talk Radio guest for Nov. 24, noon PDT/3 p.m. EDT/9 p.m. UK, Patricia Sobczyk is one person who has lived all of these pieces of her life since she was 18 years old.
At 18 years of age she was a stay-at-home mother of one child when she contracted Polio. Polio left her with needing to use a wheelchair and needing to learn how to adapt to an entirely new way of life. This was 1972, long before the Americans with Disabilities Act was passed. Being the first case of Polio in Wisconsin in 10 years, and requiring a number of services of The United Way, Pat served on the United Way’s Speaker’s Bureau and spoke at 22 different companies in Milwaukee, appeared in numerous newspaper ads, articles and informational brochures and did local media interviews. Since then she has raised three boys, held several jobs, continued to speak out for as an advocate for "disabled" people and live her life of purpose, while enjoying the holidays and every other day of life.
Each Monday live at 12 noon PT/3 pm ET/8 pm UK, or archived thereafter, our host, Cindy Freeman, and her guests bring insights and ideas to help you grow in your Soul path. Check out more information at Purpose Talk Radio and join the conversations on Facebook at Purpose Talk Radio Conversations.
