Intiative Radio: NYC Poet Richard Cooper Williams June 29, 2009
“Initiative Radio’s” motto is “Food for the Mind & Music for the Soul” and in this edition Angela is joined by New York City poet Richard Cooper Williams to focus on the soulful aspect of the program. Williams reads several selections from his book “From A Whisper To A Scream” whilst Angela spins the acoustic guitar based tracks of East Coast singer/songwriter Matt Duke’s “Acoustic Kingdom Underground.” This show is perfect for setting the soul adrift on an ocean of bliss and reflection.
Cathy Lanyard is a self-described, “Professional Do-Gooder.” Having grown up in a privileged New Jersey suburb, her mother’s inability to “give-back” inspired her to do just the opposite.
Today, Cathy is the Executive Director of The American Friends of ALYN Hospital In Tel Aviv, Israel. This round-the-clock rehabilitation facility, serves children of ALL ethnic and religious backgrounds using innovative techniques, designed to improve the quality of their lives, regardless of the severity of their injuries and illnesses.
In this position, Cathy is able to promote her two most beloved causes – children and Israel. To listen to the show:

Angel McKenzie isn’t your average Roots-Rock and Soul singer. She has a mission in her music, specifically to use her songs as a vehicle to spotlight poverty and hunger with her AMcK Initiative. Musical activities include staging benefit concerts/food drives, where the audience comes out to enjoy great music in exchange for food donations. After each show the collected food is turned over to a local food rescue agency for distribution to the needy. That officially makes Angela a beautiful person inside and out. Check out her soulful music here.
