Randy Poe was a guest on Coffee, Country, and Cody on WSM in Nashville. 

Onstage and Backstage

 

About the Book
Buck 'Em! The Autobiography of Buck Owens is the life story of a country music legend. Born in Texas and raised in Arizona, Buck eventually found his way to Bakersfield, California. Unlike the vast majority of country singers, songwriters, and musicians who made their fortunes working and living in Nashville, the often rebellious and always independent Owens chose to create his own brand of country music some 2,000 miles away from Music City – racking up a remarkable twenty-one number one hits along the way. In the process he helped give birth to a new country sound and did more than any other individual to establish Bakersfield as a country music center.

Buck 'Em! is the fascinating story of the life of country superstar Buck Owens – from the back roads of Texas to the streets of Bakersfield.

Erica Blount Danois, author of Love, Peace, and Soul: Behind the Scenes of America's Favorite Dance Show, was a guest recently of The Marc Steiner Show on WEAA in Baltimore.

Onstage and Backstage

 

About the Book
Love, Peace, and Soul tells the story of the television phenomenon known as Soul Train, a show created in the land of bell bottoms, afros, and soul power; a show that became the touchstone of the Baby Boomer generation. Don Cornelius, host and owner of the show, was one of the coolest cats on television. With his platform shoes, wide neckties, and mellifluous voice, he showed the world just how corny American Bandstand was in comparison. In 2012, fans were shocked to hear one of the most powerful men in the music and television business took his own life.

Love, Peace, and Soul is a celebratory, behind-the-scenes collection of anecdotes, stories, and reflections, from the people who were there, about the host, the show, and the power of black music and dance on television.

Cary Ginell talks about his book, Walk Tall: The Music and Life of Julian "Cannonball" Adderley, with Mark Lynch on the WICN program, Inquiry.

Onstage and Backstage

 

About the Book
Cannonball Adderley introduces his 1967 recording of “Walk Tall,” by saying, “There are times when things don't lay the way they're supposed to lay. But regardless, you're supposed to hold your head up high and walk tall.”

This sums up the life of Julian “Cannonball” Adderley.  In Walk Tall, Cary Ginell paints a rich portrait of Adderley, a man who used a gargantuan technique on the alto saxophone, pride in heritage, devotion to educating youngsters, and insatiable musical curiosity to bridge gaps between jazz and popular music in the 1960s and '70s.

Dale Sherman, author of Armageddon Films FAQ, visits "Pop Culture Tonight with Patrick Phillips" to talk about zombies, contagions, aliens, and the end of the world as we know it!

Onstage and Backstage

 

About the Book
Mankind has been predicting its own demise through various methods, from fables and religious scriptures to hard-core scientific studies since the dawn of time. And if there is one thing Hollywood knows how to exploit, it is the fears of Things to Come. Movies about the end of the world have been around since the early days of cinema, and Armageddon Film FAQ is a look into the various methods we have destroyed ourselves over the years: zombies, mad computers, uptight aliens, plunging objects from space, crazed animals, Satan, God, Contagions, the ever-popular atomic bomb, sometimes even a combination of these in the same movie!

Halleonardbooks.com   Amazon      BarnesandNoble    IndieBound

Dale Sherman's first apocolyptic movie memory was explaining the plot of This is Not a Test to his family when he was seven. Since then, he has been a fan of the genre, while writing books on such topics as women in music, urban legends, Alice Cooper, and the rock band KISS. He lives above ground and unafraid of zombies in Louisville, Ky., with his healthy wife, angelic daughter, and various nonlethal pets.
