Honoring the life and art of Maurice White...

Air date: 
Thu, 02/11/2016 - 8:00pm - 10:00pm
Short Description: 
Sigh.
We literally just found out about the transition of Maurice White a little over an hour ago, and so we write this in between tears...  It's not often we shed many tears for famous people we do not know; however, Maurice White meant a lot to us.  Earth, Wind & Fire are one of the few bands to put us in a place of absolute positivity.  They are one of the only groups in the pop canon to remain consistent in their mission of integrating a (decidedly African) spiritual experience in their art.  They upheld a specific jazz tradition in this way (similar to artists such as Pharaoh Sanders); however, they transcended genres and generations.

Hearts On Fire

In this world of evil and hatred one rarely gets the occassion to celebrate and honor the emotion called love. Valentine's Day was originally a commemoration of the Christian Saint Valentinus, but later on the concept gained a more romantic notion. It was during this time that Valentine's day was associated with courtly love that flourished all over Europe. Valentine's Day customs developed in early modern Britain and spread throughout America in the 19th century. 

Tune in Saturday my friend Matt will be here with his vinyl collection and we will celebrate St. Valentine's day Swing & Country style with songs of heartache and heartbrake.

Counselor Jane DeForest speaks with host Paul O'Brien
Over half of marriages end in divorce. Why? While there are many factors in today's complex society and busy lifestyle, this is not a death sentence for your marriage or relationship. The good news is love is still alive and well, and can be cultivated and grown abundantly. A deeply committed relationship is where each partner is part of a whole that functions with security and respect, which also allows enough room for growth, creativity and passion. Through her work as an intuitive Jane DeForest helps analyze the “energy dynamic” between couples, then she helps each to shift their thinking and approach toward the marriage and their partner.
