Life Changes Show

Show Host

Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!

A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.

In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.

The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.

Guest Biography

RICARDO BAPTISTA

Ricardo Baptista was born into a musical family and has spent his life carrying on the family tradition in recording studios and on stages around the world. Born in Brazil to David and Beatriz Baptista, the biggest Gospel/Rock artists in Brazil throughout the 1960s and early-1970s, Ricardo and his brothers and sisters joined the family act and performed all over the country. By the time the family left to go to America, their farewell party had to be held at a stadium to accommodate all the fans and well-wishers.

In the United States, the Baptista family performed in churches all around the country, slowly expanding out from the expatriate Brazilian community and capturing a multi-cultural fan base. As Ricardo grew into adulthood he began to pursue others styles of music outside the gospel genre, primarily Country music and traditional Brazilian Bossa-Nova.

A talented guitarist, bassist, vocalist and songwriter, Ricardo has written and recorded numerous songs in multiple genres. His first original solo project, “Transformou”, was released in 2008 and showed his penchant for Brazilian rhythms and melodies. In 2013 he released a self-titled EP of original Country songs.

As a musician, Ricardo has performed with artists as diverse as gospel/blues artist Darrell Mansfield, jazz musician Tony Guerrero, rock guitarist Mick Taras, drummers Tom Dante and Evan Stone and many others. As a songwriter, Ricardo scored a major release with his song, “Thank You For Your Love” when it was recorded by The Heritage Singers for their “Tribute To Brazil” CD. Ricardo is currently writing and in the middle of producing his next solo EP, to be released soon.
