Help NewClevelandRadio.net Grow

Help us make newclevelandradio.net your source for Podcasting.

In May 2022, we will be starting our 6th year as newclevelandradio.net.  Prior to 2017 both my son, Alex and I podcasted both independently as well as through other small podcasts groups in the Cleveland area.  However, a small financial inheritance from Alex’s Baube (grandmother), my mother, provided us with some capital to create newclevelandradio.net.  The concept was to bring Sports and Story Telling to a new level.  We chose not to be a cookie-cutter venue, we still claim we are bringing our authentic selves to the platform.

Within months of starting up, newclevelandradio.net Alex took a position with one of his favorite Sports Teams in Ohio, slowly removed himself from podcasting with us, and handed over the reins to me.  I began with a number of grassroots podcasters and have continued to grow the brand in and outside of Cleveland, Ohio – #WERNOTJUSTCLEVELAND.

We are streaming on just about every service available as well as on Youtube for those that want an up-close and personal look at.  We offer what the listener wants to hear and our theme for 2022 is HOPE.

Immune System

While prednisone is not a stimulant, however, it is making me anxious and odd.  I am less tired but I feel as if my brain just does not want to function in the manner in which I would like.  However, I am taking it along with another medication to combat the effects of Lichen Planus.  I have been dealing with this malady for years and although once in treatment, it is now twice over the ten years this disease has invaded my mouth!  Since you can’t see it and I have obligations to myself and others you may not even notice that I am hurting 24/7.  The problem with silent illnesses is that you the community assume that I am running on all cylinders and although I try to be the SuperWoman of my body, sometimes I have to admit I need help.

I may be a woman but SuperWoman sometimes leaves and I am left alone to face the pain well not letting on to you…However, it is important to communicate what may be affecting those that are in your group.  If we don’t use words of explanation not only will we be misunderstood, we will be left to our inner voices that often are not friendly.  However, if those unfriendly thoughts are ours why aren’t we changing the tone of the dialogue.

Ponder on this!

From My Brother Gary via the Pen of Gene Wilder, ru in shlum (Rest in Peace)

A Yiddish Poem – by Gene Wilder

If you can understand this, you:
(a) Are probably as old as I am
(b) Have a good worldly education
(c) Are Jewish
(d) Grownup with a Bubbe living with you, or close by…
(e) all of the above
Yiddish was the secret code, therefore I don’t farshtaist,
A bisseleh maybe here and there, the rest has gone to waste.
Sadly when I hear it now, I only get the gist,
My Bubbe spoke it beautifully; but me, I am tsemisht.
So oi vei as I should say, or even oy vai iz mir,
Though my pisk is lacking Yiddish, it’s familiar to my ear.
And I’m no Chaim Yonkel , in fact I was shtick naches,
But, when it comes to Yiddish though, I’m talking out my tuchas.
Es iz a shandeh far di kinder that I don’t know it better
(Though it’s really nishtgefelecht when one needs to write a letter).
But, when it comes to characters, there’s really no contention,
No other linguist can compete with honorable mentshen:
They have nebbishes and nebechels and others without mazel,
Then, too, schmendriks and schlemiels, and let’s not forget schlemazel.
These words are so precise and descriptive to the listener,
So much better than “a pill” is to call someone ‘farbissener’.
Or – that a brazen woman would be better called Choleria,
And you’ll agree farklempt says more than does hysteria.
I’m not haken dir a tshainik and I hope I’m not a kvetch,
But isn’t mieskeit kinder, than to call someone a wretch?
Mitten derinnen, I hear Bubbe say, “It’s nechtiker tog, don’t fear,
To me you’re still a maven, zol zein shah, don’t fill my ear.
A leben ahf dein keppele, I don’t mean to interrupt,
But you are speaking narishkeit…..
And …A gezunt auf dein kop!”

I am sharing something I heard today

Always looking for new podcasters and or guests!

In July 2018 I had the opportunity to interview the Kingston Trio.  Growing up in the 50s, 60s and being a young adult in the 70s their music genre was one I appreciated and the songs they wrote and performed were songs by many of us sang at school, summer camp, and around the bond fires when someone took out their guitar and led us through them.  As a younger person, I never thought I would ever have the ability to meet them, let alone talk to them about their music, but now I will for the second time.  https://www.spreaker.com/user/10697139/the-kingston-trio-live-7-12-18

For me, success is not counted in money – but the opportunities that I have to connect with special people. https://www.kingstontrio.com/

 

 

 

 

 

THE BELL TELEPHONE HOUR — Episode 1 — Aired 10/09/1959 — Pictured: The Kingston Trio: (l-r) Dave Guard, Bob Shane, Nick Reynolds (Photo by NBCU Photo Bank/NBCUniversal via Getty Images via Getty Images)

The original Trio consisted of Dave Guard, Bob Shane, and Nick Reynolds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today’s Trio:

Mike Marvin – Taken in as part of the Nick Reynolds family as a teenager, Mike learned his music ropes at the foot of Nick Reynolds, his late “adopted father.”

Tim Gorelangton –  was born in Hawaii, just like Bob Shane and Dave Guard. His father was an Air Force pilot and the family lived all over the United States.  “Tim’s main goal is to ensure that the group’s music remains true to its original intentions. He’s the Trio’s Chief Musical Director, arranger, and cat wrangler.”

Don Marovich is from Gary, Indiana has had a very successful career in music and notes he was discovered by The Limeliters and was hired to be their tenor, and now is the tenor in the TRIO that makes me smile as the good old days are still here when they perform!

It Couldn’t Be Done (THAT IS NOT TRUE!)

Edgar Guest – 1881-1959

My father used to recite this poem to us – he believed the words of Edgar Guest, and so do I.  Just look at the accomplishments of Barbara Rose Brooker, she is a published author, as well as a magnificent painter, and at 84 she hopes to be a movie star someday.  She rejoices each year as she adds another candle to her cake, proving that IT CAN BE DONE!

Somebody said that it couldn’t be done,
     But he with a chuckle replied
That “maybe it couldn’t,” but he would be one
     Who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
     On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
     That couldn’t be done, and he did it.

Somebody scoffed: “Oh, you’ll never do that;
     At least no one ever has done it”;
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat,
     And the first thing we knew he’d begun it.
With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
     Without any doubting or quiddit,
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
     That couldn’t be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
     There are thousands to prophesy failure;
There are thousands to point out to you one by one,
     The dangers that wait to assail you.
But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,
     Just take off your coat and go to it;
Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing
     That “cannot be done,” and you’ll do it.

A Message from Caffe’ Lena where the Music NEVER Dies

Our Stages Have Been Saved
Greetings – The American Rescue Plan just signed into law includes funds to rescue and restart performing arts. As we all know, these things don’t just happen. You’ve seen the #SaveOurStages hashtag in the bottom left corner of our livestream screen for months now. That hashtag has been the rallying cry of the myriad entities that make up the live music industry. If you wrote a letter or made a call to get #SaveOurStages funds included in the rescue package, please know that yours was one of well over one million messages delivered.

We are proud to say that our congresswoman, Elise Stefanik, as well as our senators, Chuck Schumer and Kirstin Gillibrand, were all advocates for the arts bailout. However, Senator Schumer deserves an extra thank you. At the last minute, he removed a significant barrier in the bill so that qualifying venues can have a much better chance of securing meaningful assistance.

This money will preserve the diverse ecosystem of performing arts venues, and will therefore have a lasting impact on the music we will hear for many years to come.
