Each year, millions of Americans seek alternative forms of treatment for chronic health problems. Indeed, many of us know someone who has had a seemingly miraculous cure from an alternative form of medicine. Yet even those who have experienced such relief often can’t explain it. In THE MAGIC FEATHER EFFECT: The Science of Alternative Medicine and the Surprising Power of Belief (Scribner; January 22, 2019), Melanie Warner, a former New York Times reporter and the acclaimed author of Pandora’s Lunchbox,brings both a critical eye and an open mind to her quest to understand some of the world's most popular alternative health treatments, the people who seek them, and the reasons so many of them feel cured.

Kevin Gannon

<a class="spreaker-player" href="https://www.spreaker.com/episode/16802364" data-resource="episode_id=16802364" data-width="100%" data-height="350px" data-theme="dark" data-playlist="show" data-playlist-continuous="true" data-autoplay="false" data-live-autoplay="false" data-chapters-image="true" data-episode-image-position="right" data-hide-logo="true" data-hide-likes="false" data-hide-comments="false" data-hide-sharing="false" >Listen to "Kevin Gannon From Smiley Face Killers On Oxygen" on Spreaker.</a><script async src="https://widget.spreaker.com/widgets.js"></script>



Since 1997, dozens of college-aged men have mysteriously drowned after a night out drinking with friends. Their bodies have been found in clusters around the country, and the victims are eerily similar – they’re all athletic, academic achievers. In addition, near the bodies is one distinct mark: graffiti of a smiley face. Oxygen Media’s new series “Smiley Face Killers: The Hunt for Justice” follows retired NYPD Detective Kevin Gannon and his team of investigators as they seek to prove that the drownings aren’t accidents, but homicides; and they may all be victims of a calculated group known as The Smiley Face Killers.

Kevin Gannon is a 20-year veteran of the New York City Police Department. During his distinguished career as Sergeant in the Detective Bureau, Gannon made over 1000 felony apprehensions and was awarded almost 100 medals for bravery. When he retired, he was
one of the most highly decorated officers in NYPD history. Gannon’s involvement in the Smiley Face Killers cases began with his commitment to solve the Patrick McNeil case, the first unexplained drowning case he worked. The case still haunts Gannon, and it’s what drove him to come out of retirement and commit his life to proving these deaths are, in fact, murders.

Sixteen years ago, cardiologist Dr. Arthur Agatston introduced the world to the South Beach Diet®, a heart-healthy and revolutionary high protein, low sugar, low carb approach to dieting. The South Beach Diet principles have stood the test of time and the program is a trusted choice of millions. There are more than 23 million copies of The South Beach Diet and its companion books in print worldwide.

In 2019, South Beach Diet® is launching the new South Beach Diet Keto-Friendly program designed to be a low-carb, high-fat dietary pattern consistent with a “keto” diet.

The keto-friendly program option offers consumers the ability to adapt the proven South Beach Diet to make it more “keto.”

The existing and proven South Beach Diet program, which is high in lean protein and low in carbohydrates and added sugar, remains available for those who do not wish to follow the keto-friendly option. Customers on the South Beach Diet program can expect to lose up to seven pounds in the first seven days on the program, a motivating start to a healthier lifestyle.

Additionally, South Beach has increased its menu by over 30% for 2019, including 24 new foods, and boasts a menu of more than 100 meals and snacks with globally-inspired flavors.

Also new is the launch of South Beach’s new nutrition pledge that includes commitments to provide foods that are free from the following items:

Dave Ellefson And Frank Bello

Altitudes & Attitude, a collaboration between Anthrax’s Frank Bello and Megadeth’s David Ellefson—two virtuosic bass players who’ve anchored some of the fiercest thrash records of all time – are sharing a new video for the song “Late” from their debut album, Get It Out (January 18 / Megaforce), featuring a guitar solo by the great Ace Frehley.

“David and I had a blast filming “Late” at our friend Chris Santos’ restaurant, Beauty and Essex in New York City,” says Bello. A kind of rock ‘n’ roll primal-scream therapy, Get It Out is the result of Bello and Ellefson’s nearly four years of writing and recording sessions—and decades of touring, searching, striving and living.    “I think you see a different side of both of us.”

“The song has an easy feel to it, so we shot the video with that same spirit,” adds Ellefson.  “The music is haunting with a memorable hook and Frank’s personal storyline.  These songs are fun and inspiring to perform.”

The band confirmed appearances in Bello’s New York hometown, including an inaugural US show on Saturday, January 19 at Saint Vitus in Brooklyn.  Additional NYC appearances include a Q&A and performance January 17 as part of the Guitar World Backstory series at the Cutting Room, an in-store signing January 18 at Rough Trade.  Los Angeles events include a Q&A on January 22 with Loudwire at the Musicians Institute, and appearances at NAMM on January 25, before the band heads to Europe in February.

<a class="spreaker-player" href="https://www.spreaker.com/episode/16739600" data-resource="episode_id=16739600" data-width="100%" data-height="350px" data-theme="dark" data-playlist="show" data-playlist-continuous="true" data-autoplay="false" data-live-autoplay="false" data-chapters-image="true" data-episode-image-position="right" data-hide-logo="true" data-hide-likes="false" data-hide-comments="false" data-hide-sharing="false" >Listen to "Ian Port Releases The Birth Of Loud" on Spreaker.</a><script async src="https://widget.spreaker.com/widgets.js"></script>



Before rock 'n' roll, the guitar was a little noticed instrument, barely loud enough for audiences to hear. Even early amplifiers that were invented to fix the problem dulled the senses with scratchy feedback. Enter the tinkerers, obsessives, and technical wizards. If Bill Gates and Steve Jobs birthed the age of the personal computer, then Leo Fender and Les Paul helped usher in the age of rock 'n' roll. In Ian S. Port's rollicking The Birth of Loud: Leo Fender, Les Paul, and the Guitar-Pioneering Rivalry That Shaped Rock 'n' Roll(Scribner, on-sale: January 15, 2019; $28.00/hardcover), Port recounts the quintessentially American entrepreneurial story of how Fender, a southern California radio repairman, and Paul, one of America's most popular guitarists and relentless innovators, transformed what was once a background instrument into the power tool that altered the course of popular music.
At the close of World War II, southern California was fertile ground for the coming change. Hollywood's Les Paul was seeing his reputation grow, and his open garage recording sessions attracted players and inventors like Fender who were curious about how Paul obtained his edge. Tracking across decades these two fathers of the electric rock sound, The Birth of Loud captures Paul as one of the guitar's first ambassadors, popularizing the instrument, and Fender as its first mass producer, driven to make guitars widely and inexpensively available to the masses.
Readers meet a young California guitarist named Dick Dale who fried some 40-50 amplifiers in his quest to perfect his Fender Stratocaster's machine gun-like "surf guitar" sound. In an ironic twist, Dale would cause deafness in one of Leo Fender's ears in a freak accident at Fender's laboratory. And Fender was all about the bass, too. Readers follow legendary L.A. session bass player Carol Kaye who, with Fender's new Precision Bass on her lap, introduced the driving bass lines that sent Beach Boys classics and many other 1960s and 1970s hits to the top of the charts. Most remarkably, The Birth of Loud dazzlingly spotlights the way that rock gods such as Muddy Waters, Buddy Holly, Eric Clapton, and Jimi Hendrix took up Fender and Paul's successive innovations and introduced a sound that was, by turns, hallucinatory, ecstatic, and unforgettable. By the time Fender and Paul finished putting their stamp on American music, the world could hear that this loud new form of expression was here to stay.
The Birth of Loud captures the fascinating confluence of 20TH century American entrepreneurship, craftsmanship, performance, and music, produced by Leo Fender's and Les Paul's competitive drive to create the perfect electric guitar. Their creations would transform culture. Their story is The Birth of Loud.

Can they evade a war with these rival factions or will the onslaught tear them apart?

Iraq war veteran Peter Ash is restless in the home he shares with June Cassidy in Washington State. June knows Peter needs to be on the move, so she sends him to Memphis to help her friend Wanda Wyatt, a photographer and war correspondent who’s been receiving peculiar threats. When Peter arrives in Memphis, however, he finds the situation has gone downhill fast–someone has just driven a dump truck into Wanda’s living room. But neither Wanda nor Peter can figure out why.

At the same time, a young homeless street musician finds himself roped into a plan to rob a jewelry store. The heist doesn’t go as planned, and the young man finds himself holding a sack full of Rolexes and running for his life. When his getaway car breaks down, he steals a new one at gunpoint–Peter’s 1968 green Chevrolet pickup truck.

Peter likes the skinny kid’s smarts and attitude, but he soon discovers that the desperate musician is in far worse trouble than he knows. And Wanda’s troubles are only beginning. Peter finds himself stuck between Memphis gangsters–looking for Rolexes and revenge–and a Mississippi ex-con and his hog-butcher brother looking for a valuable piece of family history that goes all the way back to the Civil War.

R.L. Stine

<a class="spreaker-player" href="https://www.spreaker.com/episode/16680165" data-resource="episode_id=16680165" data-width="100%" data-height="350px" data-theme="dark" data-playlist="show" data-playlist-continuous="true" data-autoplay="false" data-live-autoplay="false" data-chapters-image="true" data-episode-image-position="right" data-hide-logo="true" data-hide-likes="false" data-hide-comments="false" data-hide-sharing="false" >Listen to "R.L. Stine Creator Of Goosebumps" on Spreaker.</a><script async src="https://widget.spreaker.com/widgets.js"></script>


Born in 1943, R.L. Stine started out writing jokes and funny stories. He moved to New York City in the mid-1960s, after graduating from The Ohio State University. In 1986, Stine published Blind Date, his first horror novel for young adults. He launched his popular Fear Street book series three years later. Beginning in 1992, Stine found international acclaim writing the Goosebumps series, which spurred the creation of additional series and nearly 200 books.
He was born Robert Lawrence Stine in Columbus, Ohio, on October 8, 1943. Stine began writing stories at the age of 9, using an old typewriter that he found. He initially made up jokes and humorous stories, not the spine-tingling tales that later made him famous.
Stine's father worked as a shipping clerk in a warehouse, and his mother stayed home to look after young Robert and his two siblings. Stine has described himself as "a very fearful child," and said that his mother gave him one of his first serious frights by reading Pinocchio. "The original Pinocchio is terrifying ... He goes to sleep with his feet on the stove and burns his feet off!" Stine said of the classic tale, according to the HarperCollins website.
At The Ohio State University, Stine remained focused on the lighter side of life. He edited the school's humor magazine, The Sundial, for several years. After graduating in the mid-1960s, he moved to New York City.
In New York, Stine worked as a writer and editor. He eventually landed a position at Scholastic, Inc., working on children's magazines. He created a humor magazine for kids, Bananas, in the mid-1970s, and later launched Maniac magazine for the company. Outside of his day job, Stine wrote humorous books for kids under the name "Jovial Bob Stine."
After losing his job at Scholastic during a company reorganization, Stine began writing full-time. He branched out into the horror genre, beginning his first scary tale with only the title-Blind Date. The book received a warm welcome when it was released in 1986, as did Twisted and The Baby-Sitter, released in 1987 and 1989, respectively.
Stine launched his first horror book series for young adults, Fear Street, in 1989. Described as "where your worst nightmares lives," the series explored the dark misadventures of students at Shadyside High School. Fear Street grew to include roughly 100 novels, eventually selling more than 80 million copies.
In 1992, Stine started taking younger readers on their own thrill ride with the Goosebumps series. These books, which he produced through his wife Jane's Parachute Press book-packaging company, targeted the tween market. The first title, Welcome to Dead House, was quickly followed by more novels. At one point, Stine was writing one or two books each month. Each title featured the trademark elements of the series: Page-turning plots and daring cliffhangers at the end of each chapter.
Goosebumps soon became a literary phenomenon. The books became bestsellers in the United States and abroad, and were eventually translated into 16 different languages. Goosebumps was turned into a television series as well. The tremendous popularity of the series turned Stine into one of the most successful children's writers of all time, drawing comparisons between Stine and adult horror writer Stephen King.
As the 1990s came to a close, Goosebumps fever began to fade. Stine launched a new series in 2000, Nightmare Room, with each title featuring an online component. In 2004, he mixed humor and horror in Who Let the Ghosts Out?, the first book in the Mostly Ghostly series.

In 1776, an elite group of soldiers were handpicked to serve as George Washington’s bodyguards. They were called the “Life Guards.” Washington trusted them; relied on them. But unbeknownst to Washington, some of them were part of a treasonous plan. In the months leading up to the Revolutionary War, these traitorous soldiers, along with the governor of New York and mayor of New York City, launched a deadly plot against the most important member of the military: George Washington himself.  This is the story of the secret plot and how it was revealed. It is a story of leaders, liars, counterfeiters, and jailhouse confessors. It also shows just how hard the battle was for George Washington and how close America came to losing the Revolutionary War.  When Washington discovered the plot, he arrested the guilty parties, gathered together 20,000 troops and citizens in an open field, and hanged one of the conspirators for all to see. It was the largest public execution of its time in all of North America.  The arrest and execution happened days before the signing of the Declaration of Independence.  So why do so few people know the story?   At the time, Washington and other top officials kept much of what happened secret. Other details were obscured by the swirl of rumors and the fog of war.  But now, this gripping story from history can be fully told.

Smithsonian Channel continues putting the color back into history, restoring it to life with in one of the most ambitious colorization projects in TV history in the new season of America In Color. Season two dives even deeper into historical archives, private collections and home movies, digitizing over 23 miles of footage, in search of the people, places and moments – big and small – that helped define the 20th century. Through rare imagery of the birth of American traditions like the Girl Scouts and the first Indianapolis 500 to in-game footage of the infamous 1919 Black Sox World Series and even the legendary Rockefeller family’s own home movies, the series continues to use startlingly detailed restoration and colorization to bridge the decades and present history as it was lived – in color. Building on the decade-by-decade approach of season one, season two captures the country’s explosive transformation: the men and women who drove it, its impact on the land and society at large, and the birth of a mass culture that we still recognize today. The season premiere, AMERICA IN COLOR: WILD WEST, kicks off at the start of the 20th century, when the legend of the West as a feral and untamed land is still powerful. From gunfights at the O.K. Corral to the Indian Wars and Buffalo Bill, it is a place where history becomes myth. Over the next six decades, that spirit persists, even as the West breaks out of this image to become a dynamic region that paves the way for a modern America. Other episodes this season include Titans of Industry, Organized Crime, Playtime, American Royalty and Hollywood’s Golden Age.

Catch up with Sheriff Mark Lamb of Pinal County, Arizona and former New York gang member turned minister, Abner, one of the participants of the new season. In the new season of 60 Days In, Sheriff Lamb carefully selected seven innocent people to go undercover for a deep dive into the inner workings of his facility. Unlike in past seasons, the participants – ranging from a police officer to a private investigator and a series superfan, were given specific missions by the sheriff. In a jail with problems stemming from drugs, gangs and operational issues, Sheriff Lamb assigned separate objectives based on each individual’s skill sets and interests, in order to best help the facility uncover flaws and evoke change. Prior to going in, six of the participants met and trained with one another, leaving only one to enter on his own and operate as a “lone wolf” on the sheriff’s behalf.
Mark Lamb was elected as the 24th Sheriff of Pinal County on January 1st, 2017. Sheriff Lamb oversees a county the size of Connecticut and manages more than 650 employees within the department. Sheriff Mark Lamb has both experience in law enforcement and the private sector. He trained with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Academy and was named Valedictorian of his class. He was hired by the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, where he excelled as a police officer and was named Rookie of the Year. The following year, he received the Officer of the Year award. He was later promoted as a Detective to the Gang Enforcement Unit and in his first year was named Detective of the Year.
As an ex-convict and former gang member, Abner will blend in easily and gain the trust and respect of everyone inside, allowing him to identify the key players in gang activity. Abner grew up in a major urban area surrounded by poverty and crime. From a young age, he understood the dynamics of the streets and ultimately found his identity there. After joining a gang as a teenager, Abner started down a path of crime that he regrets to this day.

She has earned the reputation of “the writer with the honest pen,” crafting some of pop’s most inspirational tunes for an extensive roster of artists that includes Tevin Campbell, Taylor Dayne, Kristine W., Deborah Cox, V-Factory, Ashley Tisdale, and American Idol finalists Frenchie Davis and Ada Vox, as well as eight Pop Idol winners.

Celebrated as one of the greatest R&B singers of all time, R. Kelly’s genre defining career and playboy lifestyle has been riddled with rumors of abuse, predatory behavior and pedophilia. Despite damning evidence and multiple witnesses, none of these accusations have seemingly affected him. For the first time ever, in Lifetime’s ground-breaking documentary series Surviving R. Kelly, survivors and people from R. Kelly’s inner circle come forward with new allegations about his sexual, mental and physical abuse. With more than 50 interviews including civil rights activist Tarana Burke, musician John Legend and talk-show host Wendy Williams, those who knew R. Kelly shed light on the secret life the public has never seen.  Among those featured in the documentary is R&B singer and Chicago native Sparkle who began her career as a protégé of R. Kelly and would later collaborate with stars such as Toni Braxton, Mary J. Blige, Wyclef Jean and Aaliyah. Sparkle’s debut album debuted at #3 on the Billboard chart and included the hit single “Be Careful,” a duet with R. Kelly that reached #1 on Billboard for six weeks. After creative differences led to their separation, Sparkle would later testify against R. Kelly in court, stating that her underage niece appeared in the infamous sex video.

Congresswoman Jackie Speier

Forty years after the Jonestown massacre changed her life, U.S. Congresswoman Jackie Speier tells her extraordinary story in UNDAUNTED: Surviving Jonestown, Summoning Courage, and Fighting Back (Little A/Amazon). UNDAUNTED shares the personal struggles—as a widow, a mother, and an outspoken victim of gun violence—that have shaped Congresswoman Speier’s unwavering dedication to her constituents.

In November 1978, 28-year-old Jackie Speier, a congressional legal adviser, was part of the fateful delegation to investigate cult leader Jim Jones and the Peoples Temple in Jonestown, Guyana. While helping victims to escape, the delegation was ambushed on the tarmac and Speier was shot five times at point-blank range. Her injuries were near-fatal, and after 22 hours in a cargo hold, she was miraculously rescued and brought home to the United States to embark on a long and harrowing recovery.

Her experiences inspired her work in public service, and in 2008 she was elected to Congress, filling the seat of longtime mentor Leo Ryan, who was killed in Jonestown. But her path was not without significant challenges, as Speier recounts in UNDAUNTED. Despite ongoing health struggles stemming from the shooting, and personal tragedies including the loss of her husband while she was pregnant with her second child, Speier continued to blaze an unparalleled path in regional and national politics.

She writes, “With the hindsight of 40 years, I see that my baptism by gunfire guided me into the life I was meant to live: one of public service, one that would ignite the courage to make my voice heard, and one that would carry with it a visceral appreciation for each new day.”

As a founding member of the critically acclaimed progressive roots outfit Moreland and Arbuckle, vocalist/harmonica player Dustin Arbuckle has been working hard on the road for over a decade. After 15 years, 7 albums, and hundreds of shows across 23 countries, Moreland & Arbuckle have chosen to amicably go their separate ways.

As one door closes, another opens, and Arbuckle is now ready to explore a wide range of music with his new project, Dustin Arbuckle & The Damnations. A musician of vast appetites, he’s long held an appreciation for traditional American music in the vein of Charley Patton as well as the cross-pollinated sounds of The Band or Stax-style soul.

The Kansas native marks hearing the Leadbelly classic “Gallows Pole” as his earliest music memory, becoming an astute devotee of the blues by the time he’d reached his teens. “That turned out to be a jumping off point, though,” he says. “I always loved Howlin' Wolf, but as I got older and started opening my mind to a wider range of music, I'd turn around and listen to the Allman Brothers Band, then Johnny Cash, Sam & Dave,  or Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. I hope you’ll hear some of that reach with The Damnations.”

Arbuckle is eager to take to stages with The Damnations. “This is a time to shake things up a bit and see what comes out,” he says. “The direction the music will go in isn’t set in stone and that’s a cool place to be at the moment.” He adds that he hopes to record with a version of the group in the near future. “I think this will open new possibilities for songwriting too,” he says. “It feels like anything could happen.”

The song HUSH on my latest album series "From One Place... To Another!" came about from when I was on a tour with DEEP PURPLE in South America last year. I had been recording my album on the road and heard them play it, and was reminded of how much I love the melody. Then shortly after I was performing on the MOODY BLUES cruise with guitar legend Randy Hansen..the original Jimi Hendrix tribute..who also had covered HUSH in a funky style. After we got off the ship I invited Randy to be my special guest and we recorded the tracks live in my home studio. He plays amazing guitar licks and the song has ended up a favorite on the album..."From One Place... to Another!"

BELOW 7, from Bristol TN, was founded as a way for the long-time friends to unwind and to share their love of music. What began as a simple cover band morphed into a completely unique beast when the band reunited two years ago. BELOW 7 axe men have been playing on and off together since high-school, and in their own bands as well, but it wasn’t until BELOW 7 was reborn in 2016 that everything fell into place. The long-time friends started writing their own music, and what came next was pure magic. BELOW 7, heavily influenced by such greats as Godsmack, Alice in Chains, and Rob Zombie, began to crank out their own sound as they shook the South and made a name for themselves in record time.

The modern rock quintet has a solid sound that anyone can relate to. Their music speaks to the deepest aspects of your soul with very little effort. Listening to them feels natural as if they’ve been the soundtrack of your life all along. You know those songs that get stuck in your head? The kind that you find yourself singing over and over again, the kind that you never get sick of hearing? That’s Below 7.

The band is simultaneously unique and familiar all at once, and the good news is that they’ve got a whole lot more fist-pumping songs that are sure to awaken your  soul.  Now, bringing headbanging your way,

When Jake was eight years old, his family of seven hit the road as a touring gospel act. After years of homeschooling Jake realized he didn't have friends of his own. At 14, the family settled in Kansas City, where Jake started to make friends, discover new secular music and live the life of a normal teenager. Just as things were looking up, Jake's mom became ill and was bedridden with Lyme disease and Hashimoto's disease, an autoimmune disorder. As she got better, Jake decided to branch out from his family band and hit the road to play his own music. Now back in Kansas City, he works as a bouncer at a local music venue when he's not performing. Not only does Jake sing, he creates music, too.
