Hello and Happy Armed Forces Day!!! I hope that you remembered to show love to those in the United States Armed Forces.
Well, did you have a good day? I did. I think. You know, I’ve been feeling a bit lost lately. Oddly, being in the radio studio helps me pull myself together to some degree. I always enjoy presenting an interesting and compelling show to you with Soul’s, and now, Brianna’s help. Today’s show was another good one. Check it out!
Cafe Talk: In the high tech world/society, do you believe that young people need to be informed and older people reminded, about the rules of dating? Or, on how to be in a relationship in general?
1st Hour – This Day in History and Top News
So, because I’ve gotten lots of positive feedback on the expanded version of “This Day in History”, I decided to present the expanded version of the segment again this week. For example, on this day in 1927 Charles Lindbergh made history by flying across the Atlantic ocean. We all remember the significance of this. Right? However, did you know that his mother was a High School Chemistry teacher who opted to go to work that day! But wait! There’s more! Take a listen here.
In Top News, I reported on the potential of President Barack Obama’s birthday, August 4th, becoming a “Honorary” state holiday; A T & T union workers who are on strike due to contract disagreements; and shared an update on the tragic story of Semaj Crosby. Click here for more details.
During Cafe Talk, Soul, Brianna, and I, shared our perspectives and offered some reminders as well as what may be considered “new” information to young people about dating and being in a relationship. For example, write letters to each other; when dating go to your love interest home to pick her/him up (with flowers in hand) rather than just meeting somewhere; and leave the tech gadgets alone while in his or her presence. We all agreed that taking time to truly learn to enjoy each other’s company and being fully present is key. Wait. You have thoughts on this too? Good. Chime-in in comments section.
2nd Hour – Entertainment News
Were you aware that Simone Biles was voted off Dancing With the Stars? Yes! She was. Everyone was shocked. We talked about it during Entertainment Talk. Also, American Idol producers recently announced that Katy Perry will be sitting at the Judge’s table; the Platinum selling R&B/Hip Hop singing group, Escape is reuniting in a special way; and many of your favorite television shows will be returning next season.

Today’s Passion for Fashion segment, again, reflected what’s hot for this spring/summer 2017. The Power of the Flower trend is carrying over from last Fall. Flowers here. Flowers there. Flowers everywhere— Even in this beautiful floral print dress that Soul is modeling in the above picture. Also, bright, bold colors like fuchsia, yellows, rich blues, neons, and others will dominate this season! I’m modeling a beautiful blue athleisure/jogging suit which by the way is back as a fashion trend this spring too. Go here for more audio.
Before signing off today, we chatted a bit about the upcoming Bachelorette TV Show that will be premiering Monday night on ABC 7. Despite not being big fans of the Bachelor or Bachelorette television franchises, we all agreed that “I” should be the one to tune in to see the very first African-American Bachelorette, Rachel Lindsay, attempt to find love via a television show and report back next Saturday with my comments. We’ll see if that happens. Also, at the risk of appearing stereotypical or playing into a stereotype, I shared some fascinating facts about the vegetable called Watermelon. Yes, I said vegetable!
Lastly, Soulbalm Says closed the show with a beautiful poem. You’ve got to take a listen. Here’s the audio.
Well, have a super week. Remember to follow me on Twitter at @marilynscafesoc and Marilyn’s Cafe Society on Facebook. You can find Soul on Twitter @SoulbalmSays and souliciouswewordpresscom.wordpress.com.
