Cheryl Ginnings
Guest Occupation: Best selling author, motivational speaker, certified life coach and global radio host.
Guest Biography:

Cheryl Ginnings is a mother of a Special Needs son, as I am.  She is also a survivor and courageous parent, who now shares her story, with humour and grace, to help other families thrive. 

She is an International Speaker and International Best Selling Author who strives to continue to help as many others as possible. As a fellow Radio Show Host, she has aired the Courage-2-overcome Show over the past 3 years, touching thousands of lives with her encouragement and support. 

Cheryl knows firsthand that caregivers struggle when they are thrust into the role of being responsible for others. It might be a newborn child with special needs, or an aging parent with Alzheimer’s or Dementia. It could be a disease, terminal or not, which requires a total life change. A spouse with PTSD or wounded warriors who return home different from the way they left to serve their country. Who can I talk to about my new role? Where can I find support? With her own son having 3 surgeries in the last 10 weeks, she has a beautiful story to share of compassion and love.

She was not always personally so bold, and shares: “As a child, I was scared to speak my name in front of others, but I love encouraging and supporting others and helping them feel confident about growing and yearning to be more and do more. It is a journey that caused me to return to school after my youngest was in 3rd grade and finish my degree. (My oldest had severe cerebral palsy and I had another daughter
six years older.)

This was not my dream early, but I developed confidence in teaching women's classes and I won awards in school. It propelled me into making a video to help others with special needs children, writing books and articles, and speaking many places. I taught a class for teachers and parents of special needs children in Arlington, TX, and now connect on the radio helping other parents and caregivers to be strong and courageous, despite my own challenges and stepping stones  which have helped me to grow stronger.  I love to share humor and hope with families who feel overwhelmed with caregiving roles.”

Her book: “IT TAKES COURAGE TO BE A CAREGIVER” is available on Amazon (as well as contributing to 10 anthology books). She willingly shares her knowledge as an International Speaker and International Best-Selling Author, and her Radio show airs on BoldBraveMedia.com/shows/courage-2-overcome on Mondays 8 pm Central.

Dick Larson
Guest Occupation: Spokesperson for Share International
Guest Biography:

Dick Larson is a counselor with a background in education, business, and communication. In addition to being a guest on radio talk shows nationwide, he has co-hosted a radio program and produced and hosted a series of public access television shows that air around the nation.

Dick served in the US Air Force, was a special education teacher with the Los Angeles School District, and worked as an international corporate business executive for over 20 years. He then became a chemical dependency therapist and is now at a university in southern California teaching other adults how to do therapy.

Creator of the audiotape series Points to Ponder, Larson is a native of Minnesota, where he obtained a degree in sociology and psychology before duty in the Air Force ultimately brought him to the Los Angeles area in 1971. Larson’s familiarity with the spiritual side of life comes from facilitating adult Christian Bible studies, from his study of the world’s major religions, and from the Ageless Wisdom Teachings and participating in meditation groups and teaching meditation for many years.

In these difficult times, he is very hopeful about our future and tries to help others see the positive as well. Larson entertains and inspires as he shares his strong conviction that we are now in a very special time of world change -- an exciting time -- one that marks the beginning of a new era of awareness that will offer tremendous opportunities for personal growth, enlightenment, and willing cooperation among all men and women around the world

Who Is Maitreya?

According to Dick, "Maitreya is awaited by the world’s major religions as the Christ, Buddha, the Messiah, Imam Mahdi, Krishna, and the Bodhisattva. This is a momentous event that will lead to the transformation of the world.

"Maitreya’s message is very simple: We are brothers all, and only through the relinquishing of division and competition and the acceptance of sharing can mankind manifest love, compassion, social justice, and brotherhood. Sharing will solve our most pressing problems. It will also create trust between nations and people needed to secure world peace.

"Maitreya has been giving television interviews around the world for several years. He does not use His real name or make any claims to status. As time goes on, more and more people will become interested in Maitreya’s insight and the vast extent of his knowledge of the problems besetting humanity, and start asking who he really is.

"This will lead to the Day of Declaration, when Maitreya will be invited to address the world. We will see him on our televisions, but he will not speak. Rather, people will hear him inwardly (or telepathically). This will be after a predicted collapse of the world’s stock exchanges takes place, expected at any time."

She is proudly one of an elite, global group of 250 spiritual regressionists certified by Dr Michael Newton.

Ten Years After Legendary Bassist Leo Lyons Special Guest on Interviewing the Legends
Guest Occupation: bass guitarist, songwriter and record producer
Guest Biography:

L   E   O 

L   Y   O   N   S

SONGWRITER-PRODUCER

LEGENDARY BASSIST

WITH

TEN YEARS AFTER

Born in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire in November 1943, Leo became a professional musician at the age of 16 and as a founder member of the band Ten Years After has been an on-stage eyewitness to some of the most pivotal moments in Rock and Roll history.

In 1962 with his band The Jaybirds along with guitarist Alvin Lee he performed at The Star Club, Hamburg, Germany where only a week earlier The Beatles had polished up their act. Leo was hired to play in the club's house band with Tony Sheridan and yet still found time to guest at the Top Ten Club with guitarist Albert Lee. Like The Beatles, The Jaybirds returned home to England, made the move from their hometown to London and secured their first recording contract with legendary record producer Joe Meek.

From 1963 to 1966, as well as playing and managing The Jaybirds, Leo worked as a session musician, toured as a sideman with pop acts of the day, appeared in a play in London's West End and played a residency with poll winning British Jazz Guitarist Denny Wright.

In 1967 with a name change to Ten Years After, a residency at London's famous Marquee Club and a debut album out on Deram Records, the band were soon to build up a huge following in Europe. Fillmore West and Fillmore East founder Bill Graham heard a copy of the band's first album and immediately sent a letter offering to book Ten Years After into his historic venues in San Francisco and New York. They were also one of the first rock groups to be part of the Newport Jazz Festival. At Newport and on tour TYA performed with Nina Simone, Roland Kirk, Miles Davis and other jazz legends barnstorming across the US.

In August of the same year their now legendary encore " I'm Goin' Home" was captured on film at The Woodstock Music and Arts Festival, exposing their jazz blues rock amalgam to an even larger audience of movie goers who were blown away by the intensity of the band's performance when the academy award winning documentary was released. Their ten-minute appearance in the film is an acknowledged highlight and established Ten Years After a place in rock history. The band's albums are still available, and all have reached Gold or Platinum status.

Leo has produced records for UFO, Magnum, Waysted, Procol Harum, Frankie Miller, Richard and Linda Thompson, Brigitte St John, John Martin, Kevin Coyne, Sassafras, MotorHead, Hatfield and The North, The Bogie Boys, The Winkies, Chris Farlowe, Chevy and many more.
In 2003 Ten Years After reformed yet again, this time with new guitarist singer Joe Gooch replacing Alvin Lee, and for the past seven years, aside from writing and producing, Leo has recorded three CD's and toured the world with Ten Years After.

Leo's not the kind of person who lets the grass grow under his feet and in the Summer of 2010 together with TYA guitarist Joe Gooch he formed 'Hundred Seventy Split'; a new, exciting, high energy Blues/Rock power trio showcasing their combined talents. The pair initially formed a song-writing partnership to write for TYA and have continued writing together ever since. The result was their debut CD 'The World Won't Stop' . . .

Leo and Joe resigned from Ten Years After at the end of 2013 and to celebrate a new beginning Hundred Seventy Split released a new CD, simply titled, HSS, followed by The Road, two years later.
Their live shows have already proved popular with TYA fans. HSS play TYA classics alongside new material in their shows.
'Hundred Seventy Split' was formed to play music that rocks outside of the TYA box.

A BRILLIANT ORCHESTRATED TRIBUTE TO 

ELP LEGEND KEITH EMERSON

Robert Berry has managed to survive in the treacherous minefield that is the music business and flourished as a performer, songwriter and producer. It seems he's done it all. While he may be best known as the vocalist/bass player in the ELP spinoff, 3, with Keith Emerson and Carl Palmer, Berry impressive list of credits include a stint fronting Ambrosia, and long running affiliations with Alliance, December People, and the Greg Kihn Band.  Berry has released 5 solo albums, contributed to a number of high-profile tribute albums and has an impressive track record in the studio.

2017 was noteworthy for some major efforts. Early in the years, Berry, on bass and lead vocals joined with Terry Brock (GIANT, STRANGEWAYS) on lead vocals, Gary Pihl (BOSTON, SAMMY HAGAR, ALLIANCE) on guitar, and Matt Starr (ACE FREHLEY, MR. BIG) on drums, to form ALL 41.They released the band's debut album, "World's Best Hope".  Simultaneously, he mounted a dedicated effort to complete his collaboration with Keith Emerson on the long awaited 3 follow up.  That album, which took shape in 2016, was nearly shattered with the news of Keith Emerson tragic death.  Ultimately and as a tribute to the friendship of Emerson and Berry, it somewhat painfully got back on track and The Rules Have Changed on Frontiers Music SRL was released earlier this year.
