Brendan to Extend Message of Love from Radio into Community: love and compassion on the air!
For more than a decade, counselor, teacher, radio host and humanitarian Richard Brendan has artfully conducted compelling interviews with the most compassionate and influential visionary leaders and social change artists in the world today. His ever-popular Richard Brendan...bringing love to life!TM show airs on 88.7 WICR-FM from 9 to 10 a.m. every Saturday, and he will begin stepping out from behind his radio mic to also share his timely, uplifting message with groups and organizations this year.
Under the common theme of loving ourselves, one another and the Earth, the impressive list of guests on his show have included Dr. Patch Adams, Deepak Chopra, Judy Collins, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Marianne Williamson. Brendan is also executive producer and president of JourneysFire Productions which produces the show.
Known as a “sacred activist”, Brendan has a huge heart for inspiring people of all ages to look for practical ways to create more love and compassion in their day-to-day living. He credits his often-fiery passion to the late Dr. Leo Buscaglia who started a similar movement about love in the 1970s. Brendan interviewed Dr. Buscaglia in 1998 shortly before his death. “Ever since then,” says Brendan, “I have known I am to pick up the torch that Leo left.”
“A tender, compassionate concern for all creation will need to arise and reign in our hearts if we want to see a better world,” he says. “I believe the power of love is the fuel behind a dynamic movement for personal and social change. This truly is bringing love to life!”
