This Saturday will be a great time, so if possible come on over to First Choice Medical at 251 North Trade Street in Matthews! We’ll be live from their store for the entire show, 10 am to noon. I’ll be at Stumptown Park to help kick off the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Senior Games around 8am. Since I won the local 100m and 200m last year, I just might challenge the Matthews Mayor to a race down Trade Street!
Then I’ll be heading a short piece down the street to First Choice Medical where I’ll be broadcasting live, with my lively and very talented co-host, Heather Hammond. Stop by and join in the fun. David Warren, the proprietor of First Choice Medical has promised special deals on many of the wide range of items in stock and ready for delivery.
Thanks for being an important part of our ever growing family of listeners and supporters.
Music, Acting, and lots of laughs as my special guests are Dr. Wrenn Goodrum and Frank Forsythe. Dr. Goodrum is an actor, director, and founder of A.C.T. – Activate Community through Theatre. She is a creative and multi-talented artist who directs childrens’ theatre and conducts acting classes and directs plays for the 50+ group. Wrenn shares her background as an actor and her journey to her passion in the theatre- directing. Frank is a seasoned radio guy, who spent some of his early years selling advertising for the ‘new’ Phil Donahue show back in the 1970s. His stories about his time in the early days of television talk shows will transport you to an earlier time, and a bit of a peek into the behind the scenes life of a traveling media salesperson.
Frank relates that the magic of radio is it’s ability to become “theatre for the ears”. It’s what the greatest generation grew up with and how they learned about the world outside their community- in sports, the arts, politics and the world. Frank brought his ukulele to the studio and entertained us as we went to break.
I hope that you enjoy this show as much as I did being in the studio with two wonderful individuals- Dr. Wrenn Goodrum and Frank Forsythe!
Dr. Wrenn Goodrum, one of my inspirations to stretch out the borders of my comfort zone, and an accomplished actor and theatre director, will be my guest co-host this Saturday, April 6th! Wrenn plays a significant director’s role in Children’s Theatre, and she also conducts acting classes for the 50+ crowd- many of them (like myself before I met Wrenn) had never taken to the stage (unless it was leaving town- sorry, I just had to…).
My musical guest is Frank Forsythe, who is bringing his Magical Ukulele to entertain the masses. Frank is a former Ohio State University cheerleader (no pom poms) and a wonderfully adroit individual with some great stories to share of his life in the radio and television advertising world.
Join us for an entertaining, informative, and whimsical time on Radio 4 the Ages -
10 am to noon, steamed live from here, or at wrhi.com.
My guest co-hosts this show are Gina Amato and Chris Simeral from the American Red Cross. Gina and Chris work for the Upper Palmetto S. C. region. If you aren’t aware of the vast array of services provided by the Red Cross organization, listen to this offering of Radio 4 the Ages. Gina and Chris describe the financial assistance available for American service men and women, and the vital role that volunteers play in comforting folks who experience personal disasters such as house fires. As usual there is plenty of humor, and lots of laughs. It just wouldn’t be a proper R4tA broadcast without those ingredients.
David’s Discourse is another in a series that I’ve done on gun control. This one is an interesting take, with a few segues into comparisons that I feel are relevant to our efforts, or lack therof, to find a common ground in the effort to protect all of our innocents from gun violence. I’d like to get your opinion on the subject, if you’re willing to share. You can send me a comment right from our web site.
And as always, thanks for being a part of Radio 4 the Ages!
