Would John Fitzgerald Kennedy still be a Democrat if he were with us today?
Peter Yarrow, 1/3 of Peter, Paul & Mary, has been a folk-singer and social activist for over a half-century. He did a solo concert on April 18, 2014 at The Egyptian Theatre in Park City, Utah. It was a wonderful mix of talk and song AND sing-a-long with him. Herewith is a recollection of performing at The White House in 1962 to then President John F. Kennedy, first-lady Jackie Kennedy, and other celebrities and notables…enjoy this story. I sure did!

Pastor Drew Sams for “Spiritual Talk.”
Bryce Zabel – author of Surrounded by Enemies.
Today’s radio show is inspired by this week’s “A Dad’s Point-of-View” column, I’m Really NOT Twenty Anymore: Attending the Outside Lands Music Festival. We will also talk with Bryce Zabel about his new book, “Surrounded by Enemies” – a book about what-if JFK had lived.

Do you think that Charlie Sheen is a great parenting model? Of course I don’t, but I bet I got your attention? He is a great model of how not to behave, as so many of our so-called “celebrities” are today in abundance.
When I was growing up we had terrific male role models. JFK stood out as the image of a man to me when I was a boy. I was devastated by his assassination.
