Today’s Show is very Unique. My shows in the past have featured musicians, singers, songwriters, American-Bandstand Arlene Sullivan, and Disc Jockeys. We have featured Military Veteran authors’ sharing their stories of military life and horrors of war – Vietnam Veterans: SSGT John Quintrell (My 365 Days With The Wolfhounds in Vietnam), Dennis Skirvin (Military Novels), and Jimmy ‘Milkman” Millikin (Enter and Die).

It’s going to be very difficult in one-hour to share of life-story of Billy Terrell … Today we have combined all these skill and talents in the person of one man…one very talented entertainer…BILLY TERRELL

The legend goes that there is no part of the music business in which Billy Terrell hasn’t been involved in. During his five decade career Billy has sung, composed, arranged and produced for a dizzying array of artists and genres.

The Other Side of Rock and War is Billy Terrell’s struggle to save his life, his career, his country and the Vietnamese orphans he left behind.

Imagine being penniless, and nearly homeless at the age of 16, forced to quit school and try to find a job with your four front teeth missing. This is Billy Terrell’s inspiring story of how he overcame poverty, bullying and the horrors of Vietnam, before his near impossible climb to success as a songwriter, producer and later as a top stand-up comedian. It also reveals Terrell’s deeply personal experiences at Mang Lang Orphanage near the village of Tuy Hoa in 1966 which as a soldier, he helped rebuild, and his determination to return to Vietnam and reunite with the nuns and former children of the orphanage.

Along the way he has a juicy tale of traveling with Jimi Hendrix, The Doors and Cream in the summer of ’68. As a writer/producer he has placed 63 records on the national and international charts. As a producer he rebooted Frankie Avalon’s career and produced albums for Helen Reddy, Bobby Rydell and great jazz guitarist Larry Carlton, among many others. As a stand-up comedian he worked with several up and coming stars such as, Adam Sandler, Ray Romano, Drew Carey and Chris Rock during their early days on the circuit.

Jewish Perspectives on the News and Politics with Burt Siegel

This program will not hold back on what the host and his guests believe is wrong with an American society in which anti-Jewish sentiments as well as racism have become too often tolerated, where cooperation across party lines is treated as treachery, where immigrants and refugees are seen as a threat to the “American Way of Life” and the gap between the ultra wealthy and the average American is ever widening. While it will reflect the values of Judaism and the Democratic party all are welcomed to share their thoughts regarding how we can achieve the dream of what our nation aspires to be about.
