The story of The Mills Brothers is much like that of many entertainers, featuring humble beginnings, big dreams, success, tragedy, and ultimately a happy ending. In 1973 host Wink Martindale sat down with two of the original Mills Brothers, Harry and Donald, to recount their tale. The pair details the earliest days of their career in Piqua, Ohio. From that small-town start, the group went on to sell millions of records and enjoy wildly popularity. Listen in as they share the many ups and downs of their successes in their musical career. 1.

The world of Mythas is in transition. The old gods are near forgotten and a palpable tension hangs in the air. This is especially apparent to two young magic-casting brothers, Lawrence and Hesikiah, raised by a father who was a War Mage of the highest caliber and a mother whose shrewd diplomacy helped to forge the alliances of the five great nations to the West. Even with a lineage such as this, neither brother could have imagined the role they and the other valiant heroes soon to join them would play on the world stage. Or that their coming had been foretold in a series of ancient prophecies. Pro Se Productions presents The Brothers Jade, an exciting tale of fantasy and magic by author Don Thomas. Set on the landscape of his own imagination, Thomas creates a cast of characters that not only stand sword to shield with other fantasy creations, but also carry humanity in their every action. The Brothers Jade is as much a story of family and heroism and loyalty as it is of monsters, mages, and battle. Both a quest tale and a rousing adventures, The Brothers Jade brings out another aspect that is often overlooked in fantasy works. It is also a coming of age tale sat against the stark backdrop of intrigue and adventure, action and danger. A rousing adventure for any fan of Fantasy. The Brothers Jade by Don Thomas from Pro Se Productions, the leader in New Pulp and Genre Fiction. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Held, Jr..

Michael Gates Gill had it all. But by the time he turned 60, he had lost everything except his Ivy League education and his sense of entitlement. First he was downsized at work; next, an affair ended his 20 year marriage. Then he was diagnosed with a slow growing brain tumor. Gill had no money, no health insurance, and no prospects. One day as Gill sat in a Manhattan Starbucks, a 28-year-old Starbucks manager named Crystal Thompson approached him, half joking, to offer him a job. With nothing to lose he took it and went from drinking coffee in a Brooks Brothers suit to serving it in a green apron. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dave Summers.

Award-winning storyteller Bill Gordh (Film Advisory Board Award of Excellence winner, National Association of Parenting Periodicals Gold Award winner) presents this folktale live with no script, accompanied only by his own dynamic banjo playing. Twin brothers were the best of friends. When they grew up, they became partners and grew corn. They shared the work and what they sold. One evening in the threshing ground, after they had worked all afternoon, they decided to spend the night there to make sure no thieves stole the results of their hard work. In the middle of the night, one of the brothers woke up. He looked at his sleeping brother and began thinking about him with his wife and children. He felt his brother probably needed more since he had a whole family. So the brother who was awake took six measures of his own and added it to the pile of the sleeping brother. Then he went back to sleep. About an hour later, the other brother woke up. He sat up and looked at his twin. He thought how that since his brother was not blessed with a wife and loving family, perhaps he should have a little extra to make his life more pleasant. So he took six measures from his pile and added it to this brother's. The next morning they found two equal piles and came to understand what each had done for the other. From then on that threshing ground was considered blessed by the love and generosity of the two brothers. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bill Gordh.

At last, the long-awaited sequel to the number one best-selling western Three Rode Together by Hollywood screenwriter Steve Hayes, author of the Santa Rosa Saga, and eight-time number one best-selling western writer Ben Bridges!! Surveyors working for the Truman Copper Consortium had found what promised to be the biggest copper strike in history. There was just one problem. That vast fortune in red metal sat smack in the middle of land considered sacred to the Apaches. When the surveyors were attacked and slaughtered, it looked as if a full-scale Indian war was about to explode. And when they discovered that the hot-headed Bedonkohe Apache, Geronimo, was involved in the events of that bloody night, his two blood-brothers, rancher Jesse Glover and the towering Zulu warrior called Sam, rode up into the Dragoons to ask him just what in hell he thought he was doing. But when they started looking a little deeper into what had happened, they started to realize that all was not as it seemed. Other forces were at work in the wilds of the Arizona Territory, in the shape of a mystery man known as Tchin’dih... The Ghost. Meanwhile, back at Fort Bowie, one of the key players in the game was murdered. For the locals, that was the last straw, and the mood turned downright ugly. If they were to stop the coming war and discover the identity of the mystery killer, the three blood brothers would have to forget their differences - and ride shoulder to shoulder again. 1.

This is the real inside story of Carmine "The Snake" Persico, from his crime-filled childhood on the streets of Brooklyn to the long-term jail sentences that didn't stop him from controlling his criminal empire, with the help of his brother - the equally kill-crazy Alphonse "Allie Boy" Persico.

Today, Persico schmoozes with Ponzi king Bernard Madoff behind bars. There, at age 84, his legend - packed as it is with coldblooded brutality - continues to inspire goodfellas everywhere. 1.
