In honor of the occasion, I am hosting a very special Writestream Tuesday on October 14 at 1 p.m. Eastern. During the first hour I’ll talk about my wonderful brother Ralph and the amazing impact he’s had not just on my own life but the lives of countless others who have been blessed to know him. I also encourage listeners to call in with their personal stories of special folks in their lives with Down Syndrome at (347) 945-7246.
And because I am not one to shy away from controversy and hard realities, I’ll also discuss the depressing statistics with respect to Down Syndrome: 90% of unborn babies found to have Down Syndrome are aborted. That is a tragic, sobering fact – one I refuse to ignore. So while this will mainly be an uplifting show, I’d be remiss if I neglected to address it.
In the second hour, stay tuned for public service satire with the Right Wing Riot featuring the Luminaries of Liberty – Scary Smart, Ms. Always Right and The Prince of Whitebread.
UPDATE: SEO Strategies with Snapperhead will be taking the Wednesday slot. We are now seeking a host and program that fits one of the descriptions below to air on Saturdays. Please contact me if interested.
The Domestic Violence Center of Chester County has been service our community since 1976. Since then, we have helped over 30,000 survivors of domestic violence. DVCCC is committed to empowering survivors of domestic abuse through information, and supporting them as they reclaim their lives.

It’s music coming at you from the Right, 24/7!
Lisa and I truly enjoyed tonight’s relaunch of Love Liberty and Lip Gloss with our guests, Marina Fontaine and Sue Bolich. After our previously scheduled guest had to cancel a few days prior to our air date, we had to scramble quickly to find a replacement.
Fortunately, I had the good sense to mention our dilemma to my CLFA group on Facebook because in minutes Marina Fontaine stepped up (even though she was nervous about doing the interview) and Karina Fabian suggested author Sue Bolich, who graciously accepted the late invitation. So in the end, we wound up with not one, but two fabulous guests.
These gutsy ladies blew us away with their positive outlook and zest for life. As the daughter of a hard-working general and vascular surgeon who was dedicated to his patients and profession, it was gratifying to listen to Marina and Sue rave about the medical care they received from their doctors, nurses, and staff. These days it’s typical for many Americans to gripe about their medical care but in spite of bad apples in every profession, overall we enjoy the best healthcare system in the world. With respect to oncologists and everyone involved in treating cancer patients, as Marina and Sue both noted, it takes a special person to tend to the suffering with kindness, intelligence and the right amount of toughness when necessary.
Overall, it was a wonderful interview in spite of my technical difficulties in the beginning. If you missed it, click below to listen. Thank you to my lovely co-host Lisa Tarves and our beautiful guests!
