Show #17: James Scruggs, Heather Bingham, E.J. Stewart, & the Rivera Brothers

In this Sunday’s show, the Radio 4 the Ages team had another packed house. Joining us at the CBS Studio was James Scruggs and Heather Bingham (both of Unlimited Possibilities Family Care Home), Josh and Jay Rivera (Prosperity Creek Senior Apartments), and joining us by phone was Ella Joyce Stewart (Story Teller & Literary Artist). We speak with James and Heather about how a family care home differs from assisted living communities as well as how James made the transition from a career in finance to one in the senior care industry. Brothers Josh Rivera and Jay Rivera tell us about their experiences growing up Puerto-Rican in New York during a time of racial-tention and the Vietnam War. Ella Joyce (E.J.) Stewart treats us to a short story of nostalgia for an agrarian culture in The South that is fastly slipping away titled “Sit A Spell”. Be sure to listen to this tune in to this great show!

Show #16: Resolutions and Reflections

Show #16: Resolutions and Reflections

In our first live show in 2012, the Radio 4 the Ages team gives us a topic-packed show.  We focus primarily on New Years resolutions such as losing weight, quitting smoking, cutting down on plaid flannel shirts, and generally living healthier.  We talk about how so many New Years resolutions go unfulfilled throughout the year and what small things we can do to help increase our chances of success.  We also try to get across the point that “success” can be described as improvement, not perfection. David does his weekly dysfunctional discourse on child homelessness in the U.S., and we give a brief overview of our exciting upcoming shows.  We also want to thank all of our listeners for their support.  Without you, we wouldn’t be able to bring this truly unique live, talk radio show every Sunday morning.   We hope you have as much fun listening to our show as we do making it!

Show #15: New Years Show

Show #15: New Years Show

In another show from the archives, we give you a recap about how Radio 4 the Ages went from an idea to a growing grass-roots movement to better inform, involve, and listen to our senior adults and their loved ones. We bring back the driving segment from earlier this year, which was a hot-button issue for many of our listeners.  We also cover caregiving, the Community Resource Connection, cancer, hospice, adult day-care, and the Senior Games.  If you’ve missed these great segments in our past year of broadcasting, this is a great show to tune in to.

Senior Moments #8: James Monteith

Senior Moments #8: James Monteith

As Thomas Wolfe said, “you can’t go home again”, and for him this is especially true.  Raised in Bushnell, NC, his homestead was flooded as part of the Fontana Dam Project.  His educational journey took him from a three-room schoolhouse to UNC Chapel Hill and on to Harvard Law School.  Mr. Monteith, in his early 80′s, is still practicing law in Charlotte.  He talked about home in this wonderful Senior Moment.
