Deborah Kobylt LIVE: Steve Tyrell

Pinch me, because #Grammy award-winning producer and vocalist #SteveTyrell is in the house, joining me on our Little Italy of LA and Deborah Kobylt LIVE podcasts discussing his new CD, #ShadesOfRay, among other things.

Steve’s family is from Sicily, and we’ll be talking about his Italian roots on our show, where he reminisces about growing up in Houston, where he also first got the bug to perform. Steve has been in the music business nearly five decades, with 9 of his records reaching top 5 on the Billboard Jazz charts. His latest album, That Lovin’ Feeling, features classics written by some his long-time friends, such as the legendary Burt Bacharach, Neil Sedaka, Barry Mann and others.

He’s got so many incredible stories to share, from performing for Prince Charles in London (one of my favs) to his breakthrough performance, singing in film classic, #FatherOfTheBride. He recently performed at the Catalina Club in LA, has had a residency at the Carlyle in NY. In between performing, he now hosts a radio show, too.

Please enjoy our show, where Steve even sings a tune for us, too. #DeborahKobyltLIVE and #LittleItalyOfLA available on all video and audio platforms, hosted by #DeborahZaraKobylt

Deborah Kobylt LIVE: Debbie Monteggia

Please join me in welcoming our guest, Debbie Monteggia, whose story is close to my own heart. Debbie is an interior designer and author who recently penned a beautiful book of poems, “Tears Of Change,” inspired by her life-long struggle with debilitating anxiety.

This collection of poems is personal to Debbie, who said the day she decided to tackle her anxiety head on, was when she discovered her true purpose in life. The poems in her book explore the many emotions we all encounter through our daily lives, and we’ll be diving deep into the feelings Debbie shares about her own struggles in life, and how therapy, an understanding family, and writing helped her finally tackle a life-long struggle with anxiety.

I hope you’ll join me as we read a few of my favorite poems, and some of hers, of course.

Deborah Kobylt LIVE: Jonathan Shugart

Have you ever wanted to set up a charitable foundation? Then you’ll want to hear our interview with Jonathan Shugart, founder of B Charitable.

Jonathan says he believes most people are fundamentally charitable, but often don’t have the funds to set up a foundation, normally for the very rich who want to give, but also need a tax advantage. Now, anyone can do it.

B Charitable is a convenient platform recognized by the IRS as a tax-exempt public charity, but without a minimum investment. In other words, it’s not just for the rich any more, now anyone can decide how much they want to give, and fund, and get a tax deduction, too.

Please tune in to our interview today, and hear how you can set up a lifetime of charitable giving for you and your family. And hear what motivated Jonathan to do it, too. It’s really quite remarkable.

The story of a refugee is gut-wrenching, and anyone who has had to flee their country has a different story to tell.

Today we speak with Mona Hajjar Halaby, author, “In My Mother’s Footsteps,” about her experience as a refugee, as well as her mother who was also a refugee as a young girl.

Mona details what happened to her family when they were forced to flee their homeland. It’s a sad yet beautiful story of life and forgiveness, particularly when she and her mother return to where her mom was forced to leave as a young girl. In fact, you’ll hear a story about what Mona and her mother discovered at her mom’s childhood home. It’s heart wrenching, yet filled with much beauty.

Tune in today when we speak with #ScottRyan, author, “MOONLIGHTING, An Oral History,” which provides a detailed analysis of the show, it’s mega-stars, and much of the support staff to hear about what really went down.
