Former WABC host Samuels dies at 69

Read more at NYDailyNews.com

Years ago, when she was a left wing host on WABC, Lynn Samuels used to do a change-of-pace Christmas Eve show in which, among other things, she invited listeners to sing Christmas carols.

This year on Christmas Eve, Samuels died. She was 69.

No cause of death was immediately announced. Her body was discovered after she failed to report for her 10 a.m. Saturday show at Sirius XM radio and the company asked police to go to her Woodside, Queens, home.

The American Dream



The American Dream is a 30 minute animated film by Tad Lumpkin & Harold Uhl that shows you how you've been scammed by the most basic elements of our government system. All of us Americans strive for the American Dream, and this film shows you why your dream is getting farther and farther away.

Do you know how your money is created? Or how banking works? Why did housing prices skyrocket and then plunge? Do you really know what the Federal Reserve System is and how it affects you every single day? The American Dream takes an entertaining but hard hitting look at how the problems we have today are nothing new, and why leaders throughout our history have warned us and fought against the current type of financial system we have in America today. You will be challenged to investigate some very entrenched and powerful institutions in this nation, and hopefully encouraged to help get our nation back on track.

From Hard Times To Good Jobs -- Ted Williams, Homeless Radio Announcer, Becomes Viral Star



Second Chance for "Golden-Voiced" Homeless Man?

Get ready to start hearing about Ted Williams - not the baseball player but the "golden voiced" homeless man about to get a second chance in Columbus, Ohio.

Williams, a panhandler near Interstate 71, solicits donations with a sign saying that he's an ex-radio announcer with a "god-given gift" who has fallen on hard times.

A reporter from the Columbus Dispatch spoke to him and the result was an amazing video in which Williams demonstrates his soothing croon and explains how he went from a successful career to panhandling.

Williams describes meeting a radio announcer at age 14 who told him that radio is "theater of mind."

"I just said, well, hey. I can't be an actor, I can't be an on-air personality, but the voice just became something of a development over the years and I went to school for it," Williams says. "And then alcohol and drugs and a few other things became a part of my life. I've got two years clean, and I'm trying hard to get it back. And hopefully somebody from one of these television or radio stations will say, 'hey, I need a voice-over,' or ' I need something.'"

The story doesn't end there. The clip is gaining traction on YouTube and commenters have already begun offering Williams possible job opportunities in Columbus.
