    The Sound Room

    The Sound Room – a joint project of the Reading Eagle and WEEU Broadcasting Company – is an intimate studio space that has been created in the Fourth and Court streets headquarters of WEEU 830 AM, Berks County’s only locally owned radio station.

    UP in Canada

    A Canadian skydiver attempted a publicity stunt to advertise his cleaning products business.  Daniel Boria’s grand plan was to fly above the annual Calgary Stampede event using helium balloons tied to a lawn chair and then sky dive onto the rodeo grounds.  Well, the weather didn’t cooperate and pushed him off course where he was forced to parachute into a field about a mile away.

    Once on the ground, Boria was detained by police and charged with mischief and causing danger to life and mischief causing damage to property before they release him.

    Boria says it was worth it and the most fun he’s ever had.

    Watch him takeoff UP style in the video below:

    Straight Talk – July 01, 2015

    Click here for this week’s Straight Talk with Nick Lawrence

    An Unspoken Compromise”, by actor, recording artist, transgender life coach, and author, Rizi Timane, Ph.D., ASW, is a hard-hitting, eye-opening tale of the struggles of a boy, born into a girl’s body. Listen as the author explains what it was like to be shunned by his family, his friends, and by his church, for being “different”! Imagine, being told that he was possessed by the devil, and having his mom perform exorcism rituals on him, to rid him of his demons! This interview and book may be disturbing to some, uplifting and inspiring to others, but will certainly be fascinating to all!
