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.

St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office Clariese Jones, Paul Mikell and their daughter Olivia Jones of Slidell, La., admitted to repeatedly burglarizing the El Bethel Apostolic Ministry in Slidell, St. Tammany Police Capt. George Bonnett told ABCNews.com. The trio, who were arrested Sept. 23, stole music equipment, water coolers, electronics and generators in two separate robberies of the church, which is currently under construction. Detectives worked on a tip that the family was selling the stolen goods at a garage sale on Brookter Road in Sidell, only a few streets away from the church site on Allen Road. Once they arrived at the Brookter Road home, detectives noticed several speakers, a CD player and other electronic items advertised for sale on the front lawn. While inside the home speaking with the homeowners, detectives said that they also noted two water coolers in the living room and an additional speaker placed in the rear yard of the residence. "We've recovered most of it," Bonnett said. "We're very close to having all of it - about 95 percent has been recovered." When questioned by police, all three admitted that Olivia and Clariese Jones went inside the church building on Sept. 12 and removed multiple items while Paul Mikell waited outside in his vehicle. However, Clariese Jones was booked on unrelated charges after deputies with the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle. Paul and Olivia, working with a fourth person police have identified only as Beaux, sold several of the stolen items to bail out Clariese, police said. After Clariese was released from jail, she and Olivia went back to the church to rob it again. Clariese Jones, Paul Mikell and Olivia Jones were arrested for simple burglary of a religious building, and are currently being held at St. Tammany Parish Jail on $30,000 bond. It is unclear if they currently have an attorney.
