Narrator: Candy Carson

Like most Americans, you might think of Ben Carson as a trailblazing brain surgeon and, in the last few years, as an outspoken commentator on national issues. But his wife of more than 40 years knows him as so much more: a loving husband, a devoted father, a devout Christian, a committed philanthropist, and a fierce patriot. Now Candy Carson introduces us to the private side of a very public figure as she shares the inspiring story of their marriage and their family.

Dinah Was (Dramatization) [Audiobook] by Oliver Goldstick
English | July 29th, 2004 | ASIN: B0002T8XN0, ISBN: 1580812716 | MP3@64 kbps | 1 hr 43 mins | 47.72 MB
Narrator: Yvette Freeman

Singer Dinah Washington battles with a Las Vegas hotel where she can headline but not get a room, while scenes from her life play through her mind, interspersed with musical numbers. Hers is the many-times-married rough-and-tumble life of a strong, selfish diva bedeviled by her family, her own failings and addictions, and the ugliness of racism. A (somewhat unconvincing) epiphany lets her see how to do the show without selling out. The cast, mostly playing multiple roles, is sometimes stagy, but still effective, especially Yvette Freeman, who rightly does not try to imitate Washington's singing, except in its intensity.

Narrator: Colonel James R. Haun, James Robert Haun Jr., David Hoffman

As the memoir of an aerobatic master born to fling his body through cloudbanks, Spitfire Wingman from Tennessee offers a unique birds-eye view of events and personalities of WWII and the Cold War. Encounters with Patton, Vandenberg, Yeager, Truman and Nixon are replayed with perception and wit. While jockeying P-40s, P-51s, and P-47s, he was privileged to see the war both from twenty thousand feet and as a Staff Officer at 9th Air Force HQ in Brussels. A stripped-down Thunderbolt fighter-bomber became his personal 400-mph runabout. Jim Haun took life at a run.

À la fin des années 1970, un jeune Américain, fils d’un Haïtien et d’une Portoricaine, recouvre les murs de Manhattan de phrases énigmatiques qu’il signe du nom de SAMO. Quatre ans plus tard, riche et célèbre, il invente un langage pictural d’une puissance inégalée, fait de corps, de mots, de rage. Jean-Michel Basquiat, aujourd’hui considéré comme l’un des plus grands peintres du XXe siècle, devient ici, pour la première fois, un personnage de roman. …
