Frank Forsythe and his Magical Ukulele!

Frank Forsythe, a man of many talents, will be my special guest co-host this Saturday, March 2nd. Frank will be singing, strumming the ukulele, telling tales of his advertising career traveling the USA, and maybe spinning a few yarns for us. This will be one of those feel good shows that you’ll want to listen to.

Also, Jason Basile from Westminster Towers and HomeBridge will be joining David and Frank during the early part of the show to share vital information with the Radio 4 the Ages audience about their work in the community! Join us for a bit of song, lots of laughs, and great information for our senior adults and those of all ages who love and care for them!

-thnx, david

Sometimes, things go awry…but we’re going to have a ‘do over’.

Unfortunately, our show of February 23rd, with my special guest co-host Claire Cobb has been lost to the world. Claire is a LCSW with Presbyterian Community Care Services and Presbyterian Senior Health Care. Claire did a wonderful two hours with us discussing a variety of topics related to senior health care. She was a bit nervous before the show, but she was wonderful on the air.  So, I have asked Claire to join me again on March 30th to recapture her insights and caring comments on health care for the older adults in our audience.

Mark your calendars- March 30th- Claire Cobb on Radio 4 the Ages!

Show 71: Yo Osborn, Hula Dancers and Cheerleaders!

Show #71: Yo Osborn, Hula Dancers and Cheerleaders!


Yo Osborn and two ladies from her group of Hula Dancers and Cheerleaders spent two hours with David in the studio discussing a variety of interesting subjects. Yo coaches the dancers and cheerleaders in groups at the Levine Senior Center in Matthews, NC. Bea, a sprightly 84 year old, still works a regular retail job. She likes the money to be earned, but most of all she is ‘charged up’ by the contact with people. And that’s a key ingredient to our message here at Radio 4 the Ages- stay active and involved in your life! If you’d like information on joining the ‘seasoned’ group of hula dancers or cheerleaders that Yo Osborn works with, send us a message and we’ll put you in touch with Yo.  -thnx, david

P*L*E*A*S*E

PLEASE. We all know this word. We’ve been taught it from a very early age. PLEASE was first used in the 14th century. It’s dictionary explanation is simple: to give pleasure or satisfaction; to gratify.

I had been invited to give a talk to a group of active senior adults in Mooresville, NC, the Ever Readys, and I was searching for a theme.When the inspiration came to me on January 31st around 5am, I left the warmth of my bed to write down a few words on a post-it note in the kitchen. This is what I wrote down, in this order: Exercise, Laughter, Attitude, Service, Prayer (ELASP). Then I retreated to the comforts of my king sized slumber.

When I awoke for the day around 7, I looked at my note written a few hours prior, while waiting for my morning eye-opener to brew. Instantly,  the  words I had written rearranged themselves in my brain this way:  Prayer, Laughter, Exercise, Attitude, Service. And I thought we should work on these Everyday. And so I had my theme. And one so perfect that it fit exactly into the message that I’ve been trying to spread to our senior adults since I started down this Radio 4 The Ages road back in 2009.

And that’s how P*L*E*A*S*E was born. Prayer…Laughter…Exercise…Attitude…Service…Everyday.

The presentation went well, and struck a chord with several seniors who expressed a new-found desire to be actively involved in living, rather than passively waiting for an ending.

If you would like me to speak to a group that you’re affiliated with, please contact me. I do this out of love, and in keeping with my mission: to improve the quality of life for our senior adults by facilitating their ability to stay informed, involved, active and listened to.

We’re working on it….thanks for your patience

I want to apologize to those of you who faithfully visit our site to listen to past shows that are of interest to you. We have been having a few technical issues with posting our shows, and as a result, the shows of January 26th and February 9th are not available here as of today.

We hope to remedy this situation in the very near future. And as always, thank you for being a supporter of Radio 4 The Ages.
