A personal note to you:
I'd like to thank you for visiting my blog page. I search for content that's entertaing and informative. Radio is evolving before your ear's - and now before your eyes! After a long radio career away from Chicago I feel so blessed to have come full circle, back where it all began... here at V-103.
Plenty of people talk the talk - but Mother Betty Price in Englewood has walked the walk. Every week for nearly 25 years Mrs. Price has managed to feed 5-thousand folks a month!
Feed, Clothe, and Help the Needy (FCHN) www.fchnprogram.com has never turned down a family or individual that needed food or clothing. She and her husband Deacon Price lost their home "twice" to keep the doors open. Help them if you're able http://www.fchnprogram.com/ Also, if you know of others who are quietly doing great things in the community please let me know email@example.com or leave me a voicemail at 312 540-2386.
I love quotes from all people, it could be Dr. Felder at New Faith in Matteson someone like Ghandi. Although the one that always seems to stop me in my tracks is this one:
"Lots of people want to ride with you in the Limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the Limo breaks down."

Glenn is a 25 year radio broadcast veteran. A Chicago native, Cosby entered broadcasting as a grade school sports intern in the late 70’s at WBMX.
In the early 80’s Cosby was a student at Bishop College in Dallas Tx and worked for KNOK-FM (formerly owned by Earl Graves of Black Enterprise Magazine) where he developed as air personality.
He became the youngest operations manager at ABC Radio Networks at age 26. At ABC, Glenn launched America’s first 24-hour urban adult syndicated format, “The Touch,” in 1990. “The Touch” was the first nationwide music format to register #1 ratings (Adults 25-54) in New Orleans at affiliate KMEZ. Cosby first launched “The Touch” in 1990 with 26 affiliate stations. By the time he resigned for family reasons in 1996, the total affiliate count was nearly 80 stations.
Atlanta media mogul Tyler Perry had a good run with Atlanta-based TBS, but he’s now moving on to his buddy Oprah Winfrey and her TV network OWN.
According to deadline.com, Perry will “executive produce, write and direct two new scripted series for a mid-2013 premiere on OWN, marking the network’s first foray into scripted programming.”
Perry had a long run with TBS, first with “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne,” then “Meet the Browns” and now “For Better or Worse.”
The sitcom “House of Payne” aired 254 new episodes from 2007 through August of this year under a model designed by Perry to whip out as many shows as possible in as short a time as possible to get to syndication. “Meet the Browns” lasted 140 episodes from early 2009 through November of last year.
“For Better or Worse” has aired 34 new episodes to date, with 11 more to go this second season. That show will be committed to TBS as long as TBS still wants it.
But TBS is no longer focused as much on the African-American audience, especially after it picked up talk show host Conan O’Brien last year. Conan was not a good coupling with the Tyler Perry series (which Conan made fun of at times.)
So with Conan airing Monday through Thursday, TBS decided last year to move the Perry shows from Wednesday to the less popular viewing night of Friday. “The Big Bang Theory” repeats, which debuted on TBS a year ago, have paid dividends for the network, boosting Conan as a more compatible lead in.
Clearly, Perry saw the writing on the wall with TBS and pursued a new home for his scripted TV work. OWN has seen its own ratings grow sharply this year and one of its most successful shows, “Welcome to Sweetie Pies,” does well with black audiences.
