MCS Radio Show – April 23rd & 30th, 2016

Hey everyone!  I just closed out the last 11 year anniversary show today.  This time around I was solo.  First hour topics included the results of this past Tuesday’s primary elections that pushed Hilary Clinton (Democrat) and Donald Trump (Republican) to the forefront of the election; a report that confirmed women do, in fact, support Hilary Clinton; the Dennis Hastert debacle and how important it is for parents and everyone to advocate and protect young people regardless of a person’s position in life; and monotasking vs. multitasking…which is better?  In the second hour, TV Talk as usual but I shared that I actual spent time on the set of Empire (Fox television) and have the goods on the season’s finale but did not tell it!!!  I talked about the awesome job the production team, casting crew, and actors did.  Of course, I encouraged listeners to look for me in the one of the final two episodes Wednesday, May 4th or May 11th!! Passion for Fashion, I warned young ladies about the retail websites that are selling unwearable cheap versions of prom dresses pictured on their websites. It’s called “catfishing”. Finally,I closed out the show reminding everyone that Thursday, May 5, 2016 is National Day of Prayer from Noon-1pm locally. Go to for more.

Last Saturday, I had in-studio guests. Certifed Personal Life Coach, Dedrea Benson, and Poetress, Educator, and Public Speaker, Soul Stanley returned to participate in a “live” coaching session.  Dedrea guided and coached Soul through the all too familiar life question– “How do I do it all?” In the second hour, we spent some time remembering Prince. Have a wonderful week everyone!!!
