Welcome to small business friday!!! I am your co-host, Ellen J, along with the #1 radio personality in the morning, Brian Hammer Jackson.
It's Friday, and today, Hammer & Ellen J welcome into the studio, Author Mike Broemmel"; Mr Broemmel will be here, talking about his latest project, "Stand Still & Look Stupid - The Life Story of Hedy Lamarr". The project is the international production of the play that tells the life story of Hedy Lamarr. She was an actress during the Golden Age of Hollywood ... but also one of the most important inventors of the past 100 years. Spread spectrum technology, conceived by Hedy Lamarr, is indispensable for wireless communication. Her invention is described as the backbone of the digital communications age … from mobile phones to WiFi to GPS to Bluetooth to the barcode scanner at the market … and countless other technologies. Global communication exists … because of a woman once best known as the most beautiful girl in the world.
And in the second half of the show, we will have small business Friday...giving you---the business owner---the chance to come into the studio and promote your business worldwide.
