A Sit-down with Tom Sumner of WKUF - March 31, 2009

I was a bit shocked when Tom Sumner called me to set up an interview. You see, Tom is a legend in the Flint, Michigan area. He is an accomplished drummer, a published author and producer/radio host for political talk show “Off the Kuf” out of Kettering, Michigan. Tom’s guests have been a who’s who list of famous celebrities and politicians. In fact, Tom is so esteemed that when he calls, no one refuses to come on the show.

His colleagues, J. Dallas Winegarden, Jr. and Dr. Bob Winford are known internationally for their work. JD is a trial lawyer and an adjunct professor teaching legal counseling and law practice courses at Michigan State University’s College of Law.

Among his numerous achievements, Dr. Winford is a political strategist with more than 650 campaigns to his credit, is listed in the 2007-2008 Cambridge Who’s Who and is an initiate member of the Oxford Society of Scholars.

Scratching my head, I asked myself, “What in the world does a man of Tom Sumner’s caliber want with me?” The word goes that The Latino Edge has caught the attention of a few of Michigan’s famous sons and daughters.

Incidentally, I am not bragging or dropping names. I had nothing to do with this. I give my Lord, Jesus all the credit. My purpose, dear reader, is this: I believe actions speak louder than words. For years, I’ve been preaching about having tenacity and never giving up on your dreams. The best Book ever written says, “They shall be known by their fruits.” An apple tree is an apple tree because it produces apples. My apple tree is blooming…

There you go, my friends. It can be done and this is not all. A beloved friend of mine taught me, “The best is yet to come.” I believe it and it's my personal mantra.

The same can be true for you.

Let’s get to work!

Enjoy the show!
