Sitting inside The Vault at The Play Room in Charlotte Eddie Zee said, "We've all had what Abby is singing about.  An it should have been me moment."  In all walks of life music plays a huge role in how we're shaped into adults.  During those steps we're either listening to, watching or making the beats that somehow become the soundtrack to one or millions we'll never meet.  I didn't know at the age of 16 that forty one years later I would meet another 16 year old with the same passion to put music to work.  Not just in sound but through the vibration of inspiration.  I was that kid that spent unheard of hours staring at KISS posters trying to figure out their unseen personal image.  Captivated by the mystery and inspired by all things possible, being a member of the KISS Army meant I had to hit the road with more than a dream.  In all things I'd do the mission was to tell the story of every singer/songwriter and musician that somehow got to be more than normal kids plucking away on metal strings.  Gene Simmons not only played a huge role during my 40 years of radio but through the presence of music he's made a huge impact on Abby K's journey and sacrifice.  My first meeting with her felt like a mirrored image.  Across from me was every musician at 16.  The ambition, drive, loyalty, determination, dedication and willingness to reach far beyond the presence of all things right now.  The shyness was a place we've all stood.  Only to hear that she changes once the eye makeup is  laid into place upon a face that will soon crack the concrete walls that currently keep great Rock from being the fad favorite.  At 16 I too hid behind images in a band called Painted Face.  There's something about those masks musicians wear that enables the creative spirit to withstand the pressures of being compared.  Once inside the shoes of music the world feels good again.  Now lets sing.  The world is ready for Abby K.  The wait is over.

Mid-August marks the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, the most famous rock concert of all time. In celebration of this milestone, a new documentary film – The Woodstock Bus – attempts to find and restore the lost psychedelic Volkswagen Bus that became a global symbol, not only of the Woodstock event, but the entire Woodstock generation and its quest for peace and love.

The bus, which was called “Light,” may be the most valuable piece of American automotive art ever. The only problem? No one can remember where it is. In The Woodstock Bus, filmmaker John Wesley Chisholm teams up with “Dr. Bob” Hieronimus, the bus’ original artist, in a journey across America’s highways back roads and junk yards to find the lost symbol of a generation, restore and repaint it, and bring it back to Woodstock where it belongs.

John Wesley Chisholm can discuss the new film, the unlikely paths he found himself in his goal to solve this 50-year mystery, and why the iconic bus remains a symbol of enduring hope for a better future. The Woodstock Bus is now available on CuriosityStream, the award-winning documentary streaming and on-demand service from Discovery Communications founder and media visionary John Hendricks.

Set in 1984, 16-year-old Hannah Zandana struggles to fit in at school but catches the eye of her school’s bad boy (and drug dealer). Dealing with a verbally abusive father and an indifferent mother, Hannah is drawn into the alluring but dangerous drug-dealing scene of their wealthy Connecticut town. In I Love You Like That, Hannah must cope with a broken family and the assumed death of her ex-boyfriend Deacon who was shot, seeking comfort in the arms of all the wrong boys. But just outside of town, Deacon awakes in the hospital, realizing he has been entangled in a federal undercover sting operation as their informant. Thrown into the perilous world of Miami drug cartels, Deacon must take down the kingpin in order to win himself a lighter sentence and find his way back to Hannah.

Praise: “In her novel, Cumiskey (I Like You Like This, 2017) crafts not only an excellent portrait of teen life in the mid-’80s, but also a fun homage to cultural touchstones like Miami Vice….A teen tale that avoids easy answers while gliding to a confident landing.”  —Kirkus

“This young adult novel was full of surprises. I was not expecting the story to be this intricate and so detailed. The author added tiny details that later turned out to be big plot turning points. The fast pace of the story made it more interesting, while the amazing character development left me pleasantly surprised.” —Readers’ Favorite, 5-star review
