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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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."
- Oprah Winfrey

Lenny Kravitz's design firm creating sets for Queen Latifah's talk show -- EXCLUSIVE by Lindzi Scharf Tags: Behind the Scenes, Lenny Kravitz, Queen Latifah, Set Design, Music, TV Comments 16Add comment Image Credit: Vladimir Rys/Getty Images; Michael Buckner/Getty Images Grammy winner Lenny Kravitz — who returns to the big screen in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire this fall — will bring his enviable style to longtime friend Queen Latifah’s new talk show. The singer’s design firm Kravtiz Design Inc. will create the sets for The Queen Latifah Show, which is based on the Sony Studio lot in Culver City, California. “It’s a thrill to be designing the set for The Queen Latifah Show,” Kravitz told EW in an exclusive statement. “This is the first time Kravitz Design has created an environment for television, which makes it a very exciting project for us.” Where will the singer turned designer pull inspiration from?

As the son of actress Roxie Roker — best known for her role as Helen Willis on The Jeffersons — Kravitz’s exposure to television began at an early age, though he acknowledges this is a new endeavor. “I never thought of designing for television but, I suppose growing up in a TV studio watching my mother has come full circle.” Latifah is equally thrilled by the collaboration. “Lenny is not only an incredible musician but an incredible designer, and I almost can’t believe he is designing the set for my show,” she said in a statement exclusive to EW. “I can’t wait for people to see it.” Sketches and specifics on the design details are still under wraps, reps for the show promise “superior materials, unusual textures, and classic compositions.” The set will also include “bold architectural features” and “an elegant mix of materials including refined metal screens, warm woods, and organic marbles.” Founded in 2003, Kravitz’s design firm — which focuses on residential, commercial, and furniture design — has completed a number of projects, from the interior design for units in the Paramount Bay condominiums in downtown Miami, to a chandelier for Austrian crystal company Swarovski. The show is co-executive produced by Jada Pinkett-Smith, who contributed to the mutual admiration society. “Lenny and his Kravitz Design team are designing a set that exceeds everything we ever thought possible for daytime television,” she said via press release. “Their creation blew us away!” Viewers will have to hold tight for the set’s CBS debut on September 16th, but if the aesthetic is anything like Kravitz’s unique take on fashion, it’ll be well worth the wait.
