LOVE SOMEONE with Delilah

LOVE SOMEONE with Delilah

In a world that can feel divisive and bleak, it's easy to get caught up in feelings of hopelessness, but the beautiful, glorious, truth is this: LOVE NEVER FAILS. In the 40 years I’ve been on the airwaves, I’ve implored my listeners to LOVE SOMEONE; Family, friends, neighbors, community, the Lord, and themselves. I’m talking to guests with names you may know, and those you may not. But the reason I'm talking to them is because I feel they have an inspiring story to share with you on how to change the world, One Heart At A Time. New episodes of LOVE SOMEONE drop the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month... Show More

Cathy answered a whisper in her heart, which led to a whole lotta shouting on ... Read more

He's the son of... Read more

I have long admired Elton John, and fell in love with his music waaaaaay back in the day with hits like Honkey Cat, Island Girl, and Crocodile Rock... I've played his songs, been to his concerts, watched his life unfold in the media, and even had the chance to interview him a time or two, but NEVER did I have a sense that I really knew the man behind the giant sequined sunglasses until I watched the biopic, Rocket Man! On this ... Read more

It's back to school time around the country, so I thought there would be no better way to kick-off September than with an episode honoring educators! I dialed up a couple of teachers that have had a huge impact on my life; Coach Jim Wells, who was an history teacher and an athletic coach for many many years in my home town of Reesdport, Oregon, and who, with his wife Mary Ann, also a retired teacher, continues to be a vital pre...

"I Will Survive" has been the empowered woman's anthem for over 40 years, since the disco tune was recorded by Gloria Gaynor in 1978. (The year yours truly graduated high school!) There have been many times in my life that I've drawn strength from it's lyrics and fun, funky disco vibe to get me through rough patches, so imagine my delight at being able to tell the voice behind the message how much her music mean...

I'm excited to introduce you to a brilliant educator, Hattie Mitchell, founder of Crete Academy in the Hyde Park neighborhood of LA.  Hattie has always had a heart for the homeless, and as a young adult set her mind to changing the trajectory of homeless children.  Unlike me (who has a "by the seat of my pants" methodology) Hattie carefully laid her plans and set them to action. First she obtained her teaching degree, t... Read more

I've admired the acting skills of today's guest for years and I've been equally impressed (and entertained) with his musical abilities! But it is his devotion to our Veteran's, our First Responders, and their families that propelled my esteem for him into the upper stratosphere.  Gary Sinise is a man of talent, honor, and action. Join us as we talk about his new book, Grateful American, A Journey from Self to Servic... Read more

One late evening, while indulging in my favorite insomniac habit of watching documentaries, I stumbled upon Angela Tucker's CLOSURE.  This film, created by Angela's husband on a flip-phone, was only meant for her at the time of it's making. It's the step-by-step journey she went on to find her birth parents and something of herself she felt was missing. Angela, a bright, beautiful black woman was raised by strong, ... Read more

Happy Mother's Day! To all of you who have been a mother; a birth mother, a step mother, an adoptive mother, a grandmother, a mothering aunt, a single dad that must carry both loads... I want to honor and thank you for a sometimes thankless job.  Mother's are our unsung heroes, the givers of life, the ones who teach, who love, who sacrifice. Those who forgive the sometimes unforgivable, the supporters, the nurturers... The ... Read more

After seeing an article about him on-line, my staff tracked him down and he agreed to sit down and talk with me about his experience, his art, and his remarkable ability to stay positive and RISE ABOVE.  I'm thrilled to be able to share our con...

What a privilege it is to be able to chat with an actress I have admired for so long! I don't watch a lot of TV, but I'm hooked on "This Is Us" and adore the character of Kate Pearson! When I heard Chrissy Metz is starring in a new movie, "Breakthrough" out on April 17, I was really eager to talk to her about it!  We were joined by producer, DeVon Franklin, who coincidentally produced an animated Christmas m...

This. This is exactly what I've been talking with all of you about; the idea that to change the world, you must only listen to - then act upon - those little whispers in the heart.  That's what Barbara Marlowe did when she saw a newspaper photograph of a little girl who desperately needed help. Their story is in the book "A Brave Face"  which I encourage you to pick up and read.   Barbara and Teeba shared their stor... Read more

With me today is my dear friend, Josh Groban, who I've been watching and cheering on since I first met him as a young 19 year old. We're having a little stroll down memory lane, talking about what's happening in his life right now, and looking ahead to a summer tour! (Many many venues, some indoor, and some out-door!) Josh and I share the belief that children should be championed! He's doing all he can through his F... Read more

I recently got to cozy up to the charming and charismatic Pat Monahan, front-man for the iconic rock-band, TRAIN. We had such a good visit! Train is going on tour with the Goo Goo Dolls in the summer, they have a new album out, "Greatest Hits." and Pat's life is BUSY! But not too busy to share some time with us and never, ever, too busy to give credit to his wife, and love to his family. When you give this episode of ... Read more
