    The New Western and Westerns in Film and Television

    in Books

    AUGUST 13, 2015 - LIVING A RICHER LIFE ~ Life Changing Talk Radio


    THEME: The New Western and Westerns in Film and Television


    INTERVIEW GUESTS:


    Kirk Ellis - Screenwriter, Producer, Emmy Awards and Humanitas Prize Winner. Kirk is a Western Writers of America (WWA) Spur Award Winner for Best Drama Script, as well as a Wrangler Award Winner from the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.


    Anne Hillerman- Author of eight non-fiction books and WWA  Spur Award Winner for the Best First Novel.


    THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE: When most of us think of reading westerns, classic western authors such as Louis L'Amour or Zane Grey come to mind.  But several contemporary authors are taking the themes of the traditional Western and applying them in more contemporary settings.  If you enjoy stories about semi-nomadic wanderers who live hard lives, mostly in wilderness settings, dealing with questions of honor and justice, you might want to try one of these stories of the new west. Also Westerns today are  in both movies and television. But you may be surprised to learn that Westerns are the major defining genre of the American film industry. They are one of the oldest, most enduring and flexible genres and one of the most characteristically American genres in their mythic origins. Let's learn more about the new western and westerns in todays' film and television.

    Western Writing: The Literature of America's Soul - Part IV

    in Self Help

    WESTERN WRITING: THE LITERATURE OF AMERICA’S SOUL AUGUST 7, 2014 - AUGUST 28, 2014


    August 28, 2014


    This Week's Theme: Cultural Inclusion in Telling Western Stories


    Interview Guests: Candy Moulton and Michael N. Searles


    This week's Message: The “Western” is a genre of various arts, such as film, television, radio, literature, painting and others. When most of us think about Western literature, we think of  writers devoted to telling stories set primarily in the late 19th century in the American Old West, hence the name. However, in today’s world of literature, the name “Western” can be misleading to some. Western literature is about yesterday, today and tomorrow.  Western literature has many genres, including Fiction, Nonfiction, Juvenile, Juvenile Nonfiction, Poetry and even Music. Contemporary Western literature has become America’s unique brand of literature, now enjoyed throughout the world.


    Throughout the month of August, Life Changing Talk Radio has teamed with the Western Writers of America, Inc. (WWA) to produce and broadcast four very special episodes. Each episode will include interviews with members of the WWA and will address several interesting and enlightening aspects of contemporary Western literature. 


    Western Writers of America, Inc., was founded in 1953 to promote the literature of the American West and bestow Spur Awards for distinguished writing in the Western field. The founders were largely authors who wrote traditional Western fiction, but the organization has swiftly expanded to include historians and other nonfiction authors, young adult and romance writers, and writers interested in regional history. Today the organization has over 650 members who write everything from mainstream fiction to local history.

    PWR SLAM! Featuring Scott Romer & Chet Coppock

    in Entertainment

    PWR SLAM! returns & we're going to be "Laying it on the Line"!


    First up & right out of the gate....former manager of legends Scott "Saul Creechman" Romer.


       Scott Romer is like one of many who started their managing career by taking photos at ringside, Jim Cornette, Paul Heyman did the same. But Romer has one distinction that no one else has, he was married to the daughter of the legendary Dick the Bruiser.


    Romer is a photographer noted for having one of the largest collections of sports photos in the world including being at ringside for some of the most high profile boxing matches, wrestling matches both in the states and in Japan but he is also noted for being a mark in the infamous Onita stabbing incident in Puerto Rico. Romer was a combination of Dick the Bruiser’s two favorite people in the wrestling business, Eddie Creatchman and Saul Weingroff so he therefore became Saul Creatchman, manager extrodinaire for the WWA. During the 80s Romer could be seen weekly on the WWA TV show and always at ringside managing a variety of talent against the biggest and best the WWA had to offer.


     


    Then....get ready:The "Godfather of Sports Talk Radio" Chet Coppock will be LIVE. Colorful. Flamboyant. Energized. A pioneer. A gifted interviewer. A human rolodex. An in-demand commercial announcer. A banquet-speaking powerhouse. Over the years, all these descriptions have been used to describe the unique broadcasting career of Chet Coppock.


    Chet is an  Emmy award-winning radio broadcaster, television broadcaster and sports talk personality.You've seen him in the movie "The Express". He is also an inductee in the Chicago Sports Hall of Fame.


     


    And as if that were not enough...AFTER all of this, we will have our usual roundtable discussion & turn on our Spotlight.
