Show# 68 North Carolina Senior Games

Peter Popovich and Jennifer Honaker join David and Matt in the studio this morning as our special guests on Radio 4 the Ages! Peter is a local ambassador for the Charlotte Mecklenburg North Carolina Senior Games and Jennifer Honaker is the Local Coordinator for the Senior Games, as well as the Athletic Director for Pineville Parks and Recreation. Peter is a business and life coach, and a very formidable competitor himself in the NC Senior Games.

Sit back and enjoy the show…and then get off of your backside and exercise! You’ll feel better!


Senior Games! Not for Shy folks…or Sissies!

Last year, I was challenged on the air by Woody Woodward, Yo Osborn, and my two co-hosts, Matt and Heather, to participate in the NC Senior Games! And so I capitulated, against my better judgment, and signed up for the 100 and 200 meter dash events.

Well, I trained, kind of, for a few weeks, and much to my amazement, I finished first in both events here in Charlotte, and thus became eligible for the state finals! (If you were at the local trials, then you know that the best runner in the 100 pulled up lame 10 meters into the event, and that the 200 was me against a gentleman in his late 70′s.)

If you weren’t there, then suffice it to say that I ‘smoked’ the field !! 

So this Saturday my guests are two representatives from this year’s Senior Games, Peter Popovich and Jennifer Honaker. They’ll tell us how you can get involved, and become a star in your special events….athletic or the arts.  And I’ll share how the state finals went down.

Tune in…call in… get involved.

10am on 94.3fm, 1340 AM, and at and

January 19th- Let’s do it together!

Hi Again from the confines of my 4′ x 4′ office! My work space might be small, but the ideas generated out of this micro cubicle are often valuable. My oldest daughter is getting married this May, and guess who needs to lose 15 pounds of belly? Yup, it’s your (hopefully) favorite talk radio show host.  Doesn’t it always seem that shortly after the first of the new year, we start to think about fitting into our summer attire, and how that just isn’t going to happen unless we do one of two things: 1. buy a new wardrobe or 2. change our lifestyle habits.

Okay, if you’ve any room still left on the department charge card after the holiday binge, that would be the quickest route. However, we both know that to improve the quality of life that we want as we age, it will take more than a bigger pant/dress size. Your hope is probably the same as most of us as we age…to be healthy right up to about one week before we die, and then to go quickly.  However, those extra pounds we’re carrying will increase the chances that whatever chronic illnesses our genetics and lifestyle bequeath us, will be exponentially worse to deal with.

So, let’s start now. You and I. I’ll team up with you to change some of, not all…let’s not go overboard here…those unhealthy habits. I’ll do it if you will. Eat healthier foods, and less of those empty carbs, and exercise at least a bit every day. Are you in? If you want to live longer, and healthier, then it’s time to start now- January of 2013! You’ll be amazed how painless it can be once you start to see and feel the results! You’ll be on your way to a longer, happier, and healthier journey.

Listen to my show on the 19th, when we start the conversation about healthier eating, exercise, and fitting into those summer clothes without increasing your credit debt.

Thanks for listening, reading, and being a part of  Radio 4 The Ages!

Show #66: Charlotte Spirituality Center

Show $66: Charlotte Spirituality Center

This weekend on Radio 4 the Ages we cover the topics of spirituality, the differences between organized religion and spirituality, and looking at why larger religious institutions may be waning while smaller churches seem to be growing.  David gives us an interesting account of a recent experience he had in which he was reminded that just “being there” can in many cases bring more joy than “getting there”.  We talk about some of the possible causes for a declining attendance among traditional religious institutions, the changing nature of churches and the growth of the “emerging church” movement, but also how spirituality can bring us closer together.  To learn more, tune in!
