rickie lynardLynyrd Skynyrd and Blackfoot’s rock and roll powerhouse Rickey Medlocke joins Halli at her table on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show for a rare in-depth interview, Wednesday, November 18, 3 pm ET.

RickeyMedlockeBlackfoodcoverRickey Medlocke has been performing on stage since the age of three. His grandfather, Shorty Medlocke, was a well-known Delta blues musician and taught his grandson, still in diapers, to play a miniature banjo. His musical abilities increased over the years. At age five, he began teaching himself to play the guitar. At the tender age of eight, he was playing drums in Grandpa Shorty’s band. He went on to master the banjo, guitar, drums, mandolin, dobro and keyboards. And let’s not forget the voice, rough, raspy, irresistible. The kid from Jacksonville made good, first carving his way in the competitive world of rock and roll at eighteen as founder, singer and guitarist for the celebrated band Blackfoot. And then as a member of the iconic Southern Rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd. He continues to tour with Lynyrd Skynyrd, but more importantly, Blackfoot is back!

ThenewseniorwomenBookTired of feeling invisible? Sick of getting no respect? Not willing to take it anymore? Three women of a certain age come together on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show,  Wednesday, November 11, 3 pm ET, to talk about fighting back with attitude. Joining Halli at her table are the authors of THE NEW SENIOR WOMAN: REINVENTING THE YEARS BEYOND MID-LIFE: Dr. Barbara M. Fleisher and Dr. Thelma Reese, and Cheryl Benton, aka the “head tomato,” the founder and publisher of The Three Tomatoes, a digital lifestyle magazine for “women who aren’t kids”.

Barbara Fleisher and Thelma Reese, the founders of the popular website Elderchicks.com, for women over 60 are members of the fastest growing part of the population: senior women in their retirement years also known as “Women of a Certain Age.” Wives, moms, grand moms and successful college professors, the two “old” friends came together, serving as catalysts for witty, candid, and inspirational conversation for women entering their retirement years as told in their tantalizing book THE NEW SENIOR WOMAN, REINVENTING THE YEARS BEYOND MID-LIFE, a compilation of conversations with women from 60+ to 100.

ThenewseniorwomenImageThreetomatoesAfter running her own successful ad agency on Long Island, Cheryl Benton sold her agency to one of the largest ad agencies in the world, and spent nearly 25 year in the New York City ad agency world of mad men and women. Benton, aka the “head tomato” then founded and became publisher of The Three Tomatoes.com, a digital lifestyle magazine for “women who aren’t kids”. Having lived and worked for many years in the land of size zero twenty-somethings, she was truly starting to feel like an invisible woman. She created The Three Tomatoes “just for the fun of it” as the antidote for invisibility and sent it to 60 friends. The rest, as they say, is history.

Dr.MalkinpictureforSelfishessThe authors of two provocative books Peter Schwartz, IN DEFENSE OF SELFISHNESS, WHY THE CODE OF SELF-SACRIFICE IS UNJUST AND DESTRUCTIVE and Dr. Craig Malkin, RETHINKING NARCISSISM, THE BAD AND SURPRISING GOOD ABOUT FEELING SPECIAL join Halli at her table on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, August 5, 3 pm ET.

Dr.MalkinBookInDfenseofSelf-ShnessPeter Schwartz is a retired Chairman of the Board of Directors, and currently a Distinguished Fellow of the Ayn Rand Institute. He is the founding editor and publisher of The Intellectual Activist. In his challenging new book IN DEFENSE OF SELFISHNESS, WHY THE CODE OF SELF-SACRIFICE IS UNJUST AND DESTRUCTIVE, Schwartz explores the question: What if altruism is in fact, at the heart of the social conflicts that plague us today?

Dr.MalkinBookcoverIs there a “narcissism epidemic?”  In his eye-opening new book RETHINKING NARCISSISM, THE BAD AND SURPRISING GOOD ABOUT FEELING SPECIAL, Dr. Craig Malkin—author, clinical psychologist, and Instructor of Psychology for Harvard Medical School —offers a radically new model for understanding what he asserts is an often misused term. Narcissism, argues Dr. Malkin, is essentially a spectrum of self-importance— and everyone falls somewhere on the scale between utter selflessness and total arrogance. Currently, Dr. Malkin can be seen on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network, which is running a series about RETHINKING NARCISSISM.

For the “Me Generation” and “The Millennials” who have been branded “the most narcissistic generation ever,” and those interested in the Libertarian creed authors Peter Schwartz and Dr. Craig Malkin tackle the good and bad of narcissism and selfishness, Wednesday, August 5, 3 pm ET on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show.
