And another week begins...

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Monday, June 21, 2010

Tonight, Dustin Arbuckle from the band Moreland & Arbuckle joins us on The Couch. Their new album FLOOD is a collection of Delta, Piedmont, Chicago and Texas blues flavored with country, roots and rock.

Dustin, calling in from the road, will join us on The Couch and discuss the band’s journey to this point and where he sees them heading.

The show hit #9 out of 3,577 music shows on BlogTalk Radio this past week. Thanks to all y'all who listened.

This week will be as good...


Manute Bol passed away over the weekend. If you do know know who Mr. Bol is, well he was a 7'7" Sudanese citizen who found 10-years of fame in the NBA playing for Washington, Golden State, Philadelphia and Miami over his career and was primarily a shot-blocker.

But he should be remembered more for what he did for his homeland. He gave away almost all of the money he made by playing in the NBA to causes which assisted his home of Sudan. He founded the Ring True Foundation to continue raising charitable contributions for the Sudan.

Bol signed a one day contract with the Indianapolis Ice of the Central Hockey League in order to raise funds and ever rode in a horse race as a jockey to do the same.

  2. Manute Bol was an amazing man ... and it had nothing to do with his ability to play basketball!

     
  3. Travis Cody Says:
  4. Mr Bol used his size and ability to earn the money and celebrity to take back to his home and try to improve the lot of his countrymen. I applaud his actions and hope that his foundation is able to continue his work.

    TRAVIS: I went looking for the foundation website and could not find it...I hope it does continue
