Gina, Jessie and Me!

Show #141

 


This show is the last live show until September 20th. We are replaying a previous show on both September 6th (my birthday) and September 13th.

This program with Gina Amato and Jessie Gwilt (my daughter) covered a variety of subjects, like I’m prone to do, but focused on college age children living with parents after the college experience is done.  Zoe, Gina’s daughter who did two shows with her Mom on Radio 4 the Ages, called in to give us an update on her new job and independent living.

I started the show today with some reflections on turning the page on my 65th birthday. Then we move on to a discussion of  young people graduating college, moving back home, living independently, getting a job, and starting the sometimes long and arduous task of ‘working for the Man’.  Jessie reflected on her four years of college living away from home, and the maturation experience. She also shared with us her thoughts on beginning her working career. How much does the influence of good parenting in the early years impact the decision making of college age children when they are out from under the the watchful eyes of their parents. 

I’m very proud of my daughter Jessie for many, many reasons. Jessie displayed a self confidence and maturity on today’s show as she expressed her thoughts on growing up in a single parent home and the importance of open communication between parents and children.

Many thanks to my daughter Jessie and my good friend Jessie for sharing their time with me this morning!

Holliday Adams- 3rd time’s the Charm ?

Show #140

 


Holli Adams joins me again this morning to discuss absolutely whatever came to mind! It’s always an experience to have Holli in the studio with me. She’s a quick wit, a surefire laugh, and an engaging and somewhat sultry radio voice.

I talked about turning 65 and becoming eligible for Medicare- both events somewhat disturbing with all that’s implied by those concurrent events. We also covered the declining popularity of ‘jiggles’ (the Jello variety), the difficulty and frustration women experience in trying to find a suitable ‘mate’ after the age of 50, and many,many more topics.

This program is one fine example of talk radio that combines intelligent conversation, current topics, sociological observations, real life issues relating to aging, and Humor!

Enjoy, and thanks for listening.
