Total amount:

Given this publisher's Golden Seal Award, Golden Throat journeys through the author's family heritage and then through his childhood on to the tumultuous 'Sixties' and forward into today. His resourcefulness working in the music industry with its celebrity associations, after he first enjoys a broadcast career as a news broadcaster and radio talk show host. He then studies to become a healthcare provider who invents a wireless antenna during the 'Technology Bubble.' Obliquely his life is led by faith into becoming a Post Vatican II ecumenical Roman Catholic.

The author's childhood was marred with sickness and injury. In his matriculation year of high school, he took an interest in broadcasting and after the school term ended was hired as a news broadcaster earning the title 'Golden Throat.'

Eventually he worked with both Capitol and Columbia Records and had associations with numerous celebrities while they toured. He earned a Doctor of Chiropractic degree (Cum Laude) at Palmer Chiropractic in Iowa, and practiced for 20 years before inventing a wireless antenna that resulted in him taking his company public during the technological bubble.

His oblique direction in life led to financial success, so he formed the Chiropractic for the World Foundation (CFTW) funding African projects. His brother runs the foundation today.

His Catholic faith and marriage to an Anglican, along with being raised in a blended family have led him to a tolerant and ecumenical Christian approach to conciliation with others along his life's journey.

A must read!

The author is blissfully talented at intertwining Canadian history and geography with family genealogy! As well, the memoir offers profound and refreshing insight into the catholic faith. I was enthralled by the relevance of several historical events outlined in the book and their relevance to modern times, putting things like the COVID 19 pandemic into perspective. I laughed out loud, I cried and was awed by the writer's ability to capture Canadianism across so many different geographic boundaries. The author's journey in healing and acceptance is indicative and synonymous with our country's need and desire to heal, as a land. You won't regret picking up this book and likely won't be able to put it down!
