 Live Monday-Friday (7-8 AM PT) CRN1

Chris Campion -  "Escape From Bellvue"
Christopher John Campion is the lead singer of the indie rock band Knockout Drops and is the creator, playwright, and star of the hit off-Broadway rock musical Escape from Bellevue. Indie rock raconteur Chris Campion—one of the few patients ever to escape from Bellevue’s locked ward—recalls his band’s tumultuous ride, his plummet into addiction, and the strange road back to sobriety. Chronicling more than twenty years in the life of a Long Island kid who became a hardcore fixture of Manhattan’s indie rock scene, Escape from Bellevue is a coming-of-age tale like no other. As the lead singer of New York–based indie rock band Knockout Drops, Campion got a taste of fame (but, alas, no fortune) on a wild ride that lasted from the early 1980s through the 1990s. The author is #5 out of 6 children in a big, loud, boisterous Irish-Catholic clan. He and his book are getting big buzz now in Irish press like New York City's Irish Echo and Irish Voice (which called him "one of the funniest men alive.")

Marshall Vian Summers -  "The Great Waves of Change"
Marshall Vian Summers is the award-winning author of Steps to Knowledge: The Book of Inner Knowing (Year 2000 Book of the Year Award for Spirituality in the United States) and Greater Community Spirituality: A New Revelation. His message emphasizes that humanity is a greater community that must establish a new unity and cooperation in the face of great change if it is to survive and advance in the times ahead. His message presents a new vision of humanity s future in a larger Universe of Intelligent Life and an urgent call to prepare individually and collectively for the Great Waves of change; a converging set of challenges which include economic hardship and instability, catastrophic climate change, resource depletion and escalating conflict around the world. His writings contain a spiritual preparation which focuses on the deeper intelligence within each person called Knowledge; which each of us will need in order to navigate the difficult and uncertain times to come. As nations, cultures and religions clash and become more unstable, men and women everywhere will need this deeper authority to determine their actions, to assist one another and ultimately to forge a new way for the human race.

Here is everything you need to know. Close X Recalls. Such a dreaded word. We hear about them all the time. Automobiles, with their many working parts, are susceptible to faults, and now more than ever we have become aware of the seriousness of their nature. What is a recall? A recall occurs when a manufacturer or third party decides that a product has a fault serious enough to cause harm to consumers. It is then barred from distribution until the problem has been fixed and tested.
