    Heroes of Katrina: Ten Years After-Al Johnson and Dave and Rose...NOLA musicans

    in Books

    It was in December 1959 that Alvin Lee Johnson (born June 20, 1939) entered Cosimo Matassa’s recording studio.  He emerged from the studio on Governor Nicholls Street with what would be a belated hit song and a new name, Al “Carnival Time” Johnson.  Joe Ruffino produced the recording session for his Ric label and Carnival Time eventually joined Professor Longhair’s Go to the Mardi Gras and Big Chief, and the Hawkettes’ Mardi Gras Mambo as classics of the New Orleans Mardi Gras.


    Johnson, like so many New Orleans musicians, grew up in the city’s Ninth Ward where he played trumpet and piano.  Born in 1939, he was influenced early on by Sugar Boy Crawford, Fats Domino, and Smiley Lewis.


    Alvin Johnson, best known for his famous song, "Carnival Time," has been a New Orleans Mardi Gras icon for over 40 years. A Rhythm & Blues performer, Al is a New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival veteran and has worked with the likes of Aaron Neville, Oliver Morgan, Bobby Lonero as well as (the late Tommy Ridgley, Jessie Hill, Bobby Mitchell, Eddie Bo & Ernie K-Doe) 


    Al has performed on the "Louisiana Jukebox" TV program and been the star of a highly successful Louisiana Lottery Mardi Gras campaign. Al has also been the subject of numerous articles in Mardi Gras Guide, New Orleans Magazine, Offbeat Magazine, The Louisiana Weekly, The Times Picayune, and Gambit Weekly.


    Also on the show, we have an amazing local New Orleans team...."Dave and Rose"...these fine local musicians will share their music and perspective regarding the 10 years after Katrina... Please join us for a fest of great music and perspective from NOLA musicians...

    THE LADY LIFERS Sing About Life In Prison

    in Radio

    Have you heard of the TED Talks series? The inspirational talks have grown into a popular video series and can be an incredible resource for those looking to expand their horizons on topics they may not already be familiar with or learn a different side to a story they think that they already know. According to their website, “TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. ”


    In November 2014, a group of women known as The Lady Lifers took to the TEDx stage inside Muncy State Prison to sing about their experiences. These women have all been sentenced to life in prison and in Pennsylvania there is no chance at parole. Of the ten women who make up The Lady Lifers, many have been incarcerated for well over twenty years, and inmate Trina Garnett has been in prison since she was fourteen years old. After their powerful song, the women who have been primarily known by their inmate numbers definitively state their names and declare, “This is not my home.”


    The Washington Post recently made the argument

    Fire Vs Water

    in Religion

    The 'Moon Masters', the Luminari, the Immortals who live in 'Rome' represent the spirit bound, the Alpha pole. The Masters are the protectors of the spirit. They have whole physical-etheric bodies and can materialize at any time. They are the keepers of the magnetic field of the Earth and of its action. They represent the other polarity, the spiritual Alpha powers. They work together with the Masters of Light and they are the Keepers of the Grail (the sacred and integral forces) of the inner cosmos. The Sacred Fire holds the seven original energies which flow in the seven centres of the Earth and in every living being, organic or inorganic, as the spirit in matter. As such, it manifests as the building Plan of God for the world's eras. Rome exists as the physical etheric city and represents the opposite poles of the Brotherhood. The Masters of the Moon are the cosmic feminine powers, the spiritual strength, the inner life force. During the Dark Age of the last 26,000 years, the Greys withdrew to Rome. They formed the negative pole of the inner world and served the progressing outer humanity as a counterweight. They now have completed their work in the inner world. They knew also that their deliverance would be coming at the time of the change of polarity which would complete the learning cycle for humanity.

    Stand By Your Man...Or Not?

    in Relationships

    Hello Singles! This week's topic is to stand or NOT stand by your man?  


    What if the man you are dating is arrested for something?  Should you continue seeing him?  With the very public situation with Phaedra Parks & her soon to be ex-husband Apollo Nida (Housewives of Atlanta), women are talking about whether or not to stand by your man when the going gets rough.



    When do you stay and when do you leave?  
    Infidelity - Hilary stood by Bill; Gabrielle Union stood by DeWayne Wade - WOULD YOU?
    Financial Issues - what if he lost his job?  Or made a bad investment and all his money was gone?  Would you stay?
    Illness/Injury - what if he was diagnosed with cancer or PTSD
    Criminal actions or legal problems

    Power Places(Earth's Sentient Energies) w/Maria Wheatley

    in Entertainment

    Maria is a second-generation dowser who is a leading authority on earth energies and ley lines. She was taught how to decode and divine the land by her late father who was considered to be one of the UKs top Master Dowsers. Maria is an accomplished author of books on sacred sites and dowsing. She has researched the esoteric design canons of prehistoric sites, Druidic ceremonial enclosures and the Knights Templar for many years. Maria has studied Neolithic Britain and Bronze Age prehistory with the University of Bath and alongside other professionals, Maria combines her knowledge of archaeology, and earth energies with state of the art equipment to locate and detect the hidden frequencies that the Earth emits. Believing in the Earth Force or dowsing is not enough for Maria, she wants to show the world that the prehistoric designers of ancient sites could locate and harness earth energy. Her findings challenge our understanding of sacred sites. We can look back to the past, see how the ancients lived in harmony with the Earth and its eco-energy system and adopt similar practices. By reading the harmonics of the Earth, divining its energies we can understand why some houses and workplaces can make us ill, feel uncomfortable or feel at ease and give us longevity. Divining the earth, your home or workplace is easy and Maria is adept at revealing how to detect the invisible earth energies and ley lines which silently influence our lives. Maria has also written holistic diploma courses for private colleges such as the British School of Yoga (BSY Group). She recently founded the Avebury School of Esoteric Studies which offers certificated courses on holistic subjects including past life regression, astrology and dowsing and which is affiliated with the Association of British Correspondence Colleges.
