KarieJo Ferrell, blog master & broadcaster
I love to talk! And, that love to talk is truly a love of good conversation. Some people think before they talk, but I talk (and write) in order to think.
Music has always been a huge part of my life — I have a record collection that spans the ranges from Alice Cooper to Barry Manilow, The Oak Ridge Boys to the Beastie Boys, Antonio Carlos Jobim to Julio Iglesias Jr, and if I have any “regrets” it would be that I didn’t pursue dancing and that I don’t have a talent for singing. I also love reading, watching movies and rainy days.
Peppino Bianco, broadcaster, composer, cultural commentator
Raised in both the insular environment of a first generation family of Sicilian immigrants and the wonderfully rich “outside” world of, what I consider, the USA’s version of the Italian Renaissance (the wonderful moments of the 1960s that shaped the country and the world in a positive manner), I am a former professional musician, voyeur of life, bon vivant, cynic and social “critic”. I have 61years on the planet and am still learning, enjoying and being amazed at what this journey on our “third stone from the sun” has to offer.
My interests in music, film, books, sports and science are only the tip of the iceberg. I tend to agree in principle with a phrase from science fiction writer Robert Heinlein, “specialization is for insects” … except on rare occasions! What interests me most, however, is contributing to the well-being and betterment of our planet and all creatures that dwell under our star-filled skies. One day I hope to finally see a star-filled sky when I get far enough away from the city and its light pollution.
Adam Foch, film and television critic.
He doesn’t like to write about himself, so I’ll make the introduction. Adam is an observer … of life, people, culture and politics, as well as an avid watcher of movies, films and television. He watches nearly all the movies and has an encyclopedic knowledge of most of them. He has a philosopher’s mind and a gift for cutting right to the core of a subject.
