So you say that you missed this past Saturday’s radio show? No worries. Here’s a recap:
Cafe Talk: Paper or Plastic? Also, chime in on the passing of the great Muhammad Ali and Trinity Broadcasting Network’s co-founder, Jan Crouch.
No Top News. I basically talked about the interesting life of Muhammad Ali and his Chicago years. You didn’t know that he lived in Chicago? Well, he did. He lived on the southside for several years in the late 1960s and early 1970s after refusing to be drafted into the Vietnam War. He reportedly enjoyed a normal life during his stay. In fact, Chicago is where he met and married his second wife as well as strengthened his ties to the Nation of Islam. Muhammad leaves a legacy of strength, determination, confidence, athleticism, sportsmanship, charity, poetic expression, and so much more.
The next segment featured the founders and directors of Citizens Against Ruining the Environment (CARE).
Here’s a picture of me with Ellen Rendulich (center) and Mary Burnitz.
We talked about their recent call to “Ban Plastic Bags” and quest to find volunteers to help with the research to support their position. Listeners learned during our talk that plastic bags are not biodegradeable. They photo-degrade which is a process that takes up to 1,000 years. Every year, 15 billion pounds of plastic are produced in the United States but only 1 billion are recycled. CARE believes that this is bad news for the environment and eco-system. Of course, I talked about the reason that we as consumers were introduced to plastic bags in the first place and that was to “Save the Trees” and to “help protect the environment”! What kind of game is being played here?!!! CARE is seeking volunteers to help with additional research. Join them Thursday, June 9, 2016 at 3pm for their first meeting at the White Oaks Branch Library in Lockport, Illinois. Visit their website at http://www.willcountycare.org.
I closed the hour with an announcement from the Women’s Business Center in Aurora, Illinois. They will be hosting their 18th Annual Early Childhood Education Entrepreneurship Expo on Saturday, June 18, 2016 beginning at 8am at the UIC Forum, in Chicago, Illinois.

*TV Talk was very brief and focused on the life and legacy of co-founder, Jan Crouch of the Trinity Broadcasting Network. She passed away a week ago as reported by her son, Matt Crouch. Jan and Paul Crouch founded TBN in 1973 and today the network celebrates a weekly viewership of 5 million just here in the USA. The network is now worldwide and has a television station or affiliate in just about every country in the world. They both, indeed, accomplished and fulfilled the call of our Heavenly Father to go into the world to spread the good news of the gospel. Their incredible legacy of doing just that while saving souls will live on.
Next up on TV Talk was the tease of the emotional interview that ABC’s Robin Roberts snagged with R & B singer Bobby Brown. He talks about the death of Whitney Houston and his daughter, Bobbi Christina; his battle with addictions and much more. The interview airs Tuesday, June 7th, 2016 on ABC.
*Passion for Fashion segment featured my report on going from the early morning commute – to the cold office- to the afterwork gathering with a simple A-line dress that offers a punch of color in a summery floral print. Accessories are key in pulling this off. A lightweight sweater for the chilly commute with a snazzy over-sized bag to store your other pieces.

*Shared entertainment news about Barbara Streisand’s scheduled appearance for the Tony Awards on Sunday, June 12, 2016 at the Beacon Theatre in NYC. It will be televised on CBS. This will be her first appearance at the awards show since 1970 when she got a special Tony. Others set to attend include Oprah Winfrey, Carole King, Audra McDonald, Steve Martin and others. James Corden, will make his debut as the host. By the way, Barbara Streisand’s nine-city tour will kick off in August in Los Angeles, California. Don’t you want to be there?
