As a comic instrumentalist, sawing away week after week at his violin, Jack Benny stood as radio's reigning off-key virtuoso, producing more laughs per measure than any other comic before or since. This seven hour set of 14 digitally remastered radio episodes finds Benny and his badly squeaking bow mangling the classics and infuriating the long-suffering Professor Andre LeBlanc (Mel Blanc). He also discovers his "talent" as a songwriter - a skill every bit as highly developed as his ability with the violin. Mary Livingstone, Eddie "Rochester" Anderson, Dennis Day, Phil Harris, and Don Wilson are on hand - along with guest stars Louis Armstrong, Hoagy Carmichael, George Burns, Danny Kaye, Groucho Marx and Frank Sinatra - and, they're all ears!

In 2000 Rye Barcott spent part of his summer living in the Kibera slum of Nairobi, Kenya. He was a college student heading into the Marines, and he sought to better understand ethnic violence - something he would likely face later in uniform. He learned Swahili, asked questions, and listened to young people talk about how they survived in poverty he had never imagined. Anxious to help but unsure what to do, he stumbled into friendship with a widowed nurse, Tabitha Atieno Festo, and a hardscrabble community organizer, Salim Mohamed. Together, this unlikely trio built a non-governmental organization that would develop a new generation of leaders from within one of Africa's largest slums. Their organization, Carolina for Kibera (CFK), is now a global pioneer of the movement called Participatory Development, and was honored by Time magazine as a "Hero of Global Health". CFK's greatest lesson may be that with the right kind of support, people in desperate places will take charge of their lives and create breathtaking change. Engaged in two seemingly contradictory forms of public service at the same time, Barcott continued his leadership in CFK while serving as a human intelligence officer in Iraq, Bosnia, and the Horn of Africa. Struggling with the intense stress of leading Marines in dangerous places, he took the tools he learned building a community in one of the most fractured parts of Kenya and became a more effective counterinsurgent and peacekeeper. It Happened on the Way to War is a true story of sacrifice and courage and the powerful melding of military and humanitarian service. It's a story of what America's role in the world could be.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Popetown is a controversial animated sitcom, billed by its producers as "Father Ted meets South Park", following the doodles and scribblings of a student at school during a lesson. His drawings depict the life of Father Nicholas, who lives in a Vatican City parody referred to as "Popetown". He is charged with being the handler for the Pope (who is always referred to by his title, and never given any name) who is a complete nincompoop with the emotional and mental maturity of a four-year-old. Father Nicholas must keep the Pope out of trouble, and make sure the general public does not find out that the Holy Father is a drooling idiot. Other characters include a priest who is a sexual deviant, and a trio of corrupt cardinals who secretly run Popetown and attempt to get rich behind the Pope's back. These and other elements caused the show to be extremely controversial.
Modal Mojo is an in-depth and complete lesson on modes for modern guitarists. With its 84-page book, and over eight hours of audio instruction, demonstration, and play-along tracks, this is truly one of the most complete studies of the modes available for players of any level. Mock includes etudes and rhythm examples for each mode as he takes you step-by-step through all 28 modal grooves. He demonstrates the use of arpeggios, sequences, intervals, chromatics, and optional scales to make your modal improvising more melodic and interesting. The book also features a special Resource Section, which illustrates the best scale patterns for the modes and important modal chord substitution concepts. The 28 play-along grooves are performed live by guitarist Don Mock, bassist Steve Kim, and drummer Dave Coleman, and cover all the common and not-so-common Dominant 7th, Major and Minor modes. The tracks are creative real-world performances with dynamic and color changes, which can inspire new ideas from the practicing musician. The trio performs the grooves using contemporary jazz, Latin, fusion, and rock feels in various tempos and keys. Not only are the play-along grooves a valuable resource for developing improvisational skills, but also offer a wealth of ideas for rhythm and comping.
Prepared and edited by Rick Mooney, a well-known Suzuki teacher, teacher-trainer and member of the Suzuki Cello Committee, these books contain harmony parts to go with many of the pieces in the Suzuki Cello School, Volumes 1, 2, 3, and 4. All of these pieces have been arranged to resemble, as much as possible, the existing piano accompaniments. These ensembles enable a cello teacher (who does not play or have access to a piano) to play harmony parts with students to prepare them for the time when a piano and pianist are available. These parts also provide additional challenges for the more advanced player during a group lesson. Volume 3 contents are: Berceuse (trio) (F. Schubert) * Gavotte (J.B. Lully) * Minuet from Sei Quintetti per Archi, No. 11, Op. 11, No. 5 (duet) (L. Boccherini) * Minuet from Sei Quintetti per Archi, No. 11, Op. 11, No. 5 (quintet) (L. Boccherini) * Scherzo (duet) (C.

The talented trio that brought you The Perfect Present is back...with summer stories that will brighten your day, warm your heart, and prove that life is one of the greatest teachers there is. In Too Big for Teacups, Gabrielle Simone introduces us to the Fernandez family, who is on their way to Disney for a vacation. Marlena, the oldest, would rather stay home and practice with her dance team. But her parents make her go, and Marlena trudges through a miserable week of what was supposed to be a family bonding experience. In the midst of her complaining, her best friend, Jennifer, helps her learn a valuable life lesson and a new outlook on family time. In Jackie Lee's A Lesson for Summer, 14-year-old twins, Vanessa and Teresa, had planned their ideal summer vacation. But when their father announces that he's taking over a new church in a new city, the girls find their summer ruined! Instead of spending their days shopping, talking about boys, and going to the movies, they were going to be moving and volunteering to mentor a bunch of snotty-nosed seven-year-olds. The twins do everything in their power to sabotage their parents' plans for them. However, in the end, they learn life lessons that truly make this the perfect summer for both of them. Morgan Billingsley is back with twins, Max and Mickey in A Country Summer. And this time, the suburban duo is unplugging from their iPads, Wi-Fi, and Netflix, to spend the summer with their extended family in a small Arkansas town. This was not at all Mickey's idea of fun. In fact, she hates the boring country and her &quote;classless&quote; relatives. While Max fits right in with his cousins, Mickey soon feels left out and learns a valuable lesson about life - it doesn't matter what you have...what matters is who you have. These three young writers will inspire and entertain...and leave you with a lesson or two yourself.
