Cirina Catania, the host of OWC RADiO, talks with Michael Williams, the Godfather of Comedy! If laughter is the best medicine, the doctor is in! Imagine living in LA in 1985 and being an African-American fan of stand up comedy but having nowhere to go to see comedians who resonated with you! Michael Williams had the unique idea to open a comedy club that featured all-black stand up comedians tailored to and reflecting the culture of his African American race. It had never been done before, but the results were pure magic. This conversation is about what happens when one hard-working person has the courage to try something completely new. It is about changing the world. It's about giving a voice in the '80s to what, at the time, was an under-represented culture. It is about creating a legacy and passing on wisdom to the next generation. And...it is about having fun, poking fun, healing wounds and finding joy. If these themes interest you, get ready for another great episode of OWC RADiO as Cirina Catania interviews Michael Williams, the real Godfather of Comedy. Michael was honored during a celebration of African American history, on the 4th of February, 2020, at the City Hall in Los Angeles. The world has been too quiet for too long about this selfless pioneer. We hope he will continue to get the recognition he so well deserves. The exhibit honoring Michael and several of America's most popular comedians is entitled, "Stand Up: Art and Politics in Comedy" and will remain on display for the entire month of February.

Marco Missinato is an artist, a music composer, a photographer, but mostly he's a messenger of peace. “Following our most joyful imagination by taking action is the key to the manifestation of the highest expression of ourselves in the physical journey.”(Marco Missinato, November 2019) In this episode of OWC RADiO, Composer Marco Missinato talks with Host Cirina Catania, about his early years as a child prodigy, his love of piano and music, and working as a photographer on one of Italy's leading magazines and his journey on life's spiritual path. We particularly loved his story about how he got the symphony director in Portugal to listen to his pitch about "Unfolding Secrets." An example of how the universe takes care of us if we just "put it out there." The result was a memorable symphony that will live in the hearts of the audience for years to come.

Months of research, many more months filming and editing, this movie tells the story of the Wall and its impact on the flora and fauna spanning over 1,200 miles along the Rio Grande bordering the United States of America and Mexico.

The film premiered at SXSW 2019 and received rave reviews from the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, Hollywood Reporter, Outside magazine, and a number of others. As of this writing, it currently enjoys a 100% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. John's website gives more information on feature documentaries he has worked on. These include, "An Unreal Dream," and "Audubon," as well as a number of short films and music-themed works including the "Geo Sessions," a music series he produced, shot and edited for National Geographic.
