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.
November 16, 2012 -- The Chicago Bulls will build their new basketball practice facility on a site next to the United Center, the team announced today, releasing a preliminary architectural rendering of the planned facility.
"I am pleased that the Bulls are moving their practice facilities into the City of Chicago and continuing the great work revitalizing the entire neighborhood around the United Center," said Mayor Emanuel. "The Bulls are an iconic championship team and a source of pride for our city. Their future, and the future of the West Side, is bright."
The location planned for the new facility is Parking Lot J, which sits east of the United Center across South Wood Street between Monroe and Madison Streets. Plans for the new facility remain in development and the project, which will be funded completely by the Bulls, is scheduled for completion in time for the 2014-2015 season.
The facility is anticipated to be approximately 55,000-square-feet in size. The firm, 360 Architects, has been selected as the lead project architect, and McHugh Construction has been named the General Contractor. The Bulls are committed to providing opportunities for Chicago-based companies, including women/minorities owned businesses, to be selected as part of the construction project.
“Today’s announcement is the latest example of our longstanding commitment to the City of Chicago and to our fans,” said Bulls Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf. “Investing in a modern facility for our players and coaches will help us to achieve our team’s number one goal – winning championships – while also playing an important role in the city’s ongoing redevelopment efforts in our West Side neighborhood.”
When the team announced the practice facility relocation earlier this year, Reinsdorf credited the Mayor with the idea to move the facility.
“Mayor Emanuel has done a tremendous job promoting investment in the City of Chicago. The Mayor stressed that the Bulls brand is important to the city, nationally and internationally, and that the Bulls represent the spirit and competitive grit of Chicago. He thought centralizing our team assets inside the city limits would be a demonstration of our ongoing commitment to Chicago. We had been contemplating how to address the growing demands on our current practice facility for awhile, so the Mayor’s timing and ours made sense.”
The Bulls have practiced at the Sheri L. Berto Center in Deerfield, IL, since 1992. The team intends to sell the current practice facility.
“We share Mayor Emanuel’s vision for the West Side and are proud that this new facility will be a major part of that vision,” said President and COO Michael Reinsdorf. “Our current practice facility presented some limitations for us and as we looked to invest in the team’s future, we recognized the importance of also investing in our community.”
"I am pleased that the Bulls are planning to build this new facility in the shadow of the United Center, and I commend the team for their continued work to bring economic opportunity on the West Side of Chicago," said Ald. Walter Burnett, 27th Ward. "I look forward to working with the team and the Mayor's office as we go through a community process to make sure this proposed facility integrates seamlessly and productively into the surrounding neighborhood."
The Bulls plan to share with fans and the public additional information on the new practice facility, including updated renderings and other building details, as the project moves forward.
