ME & MICHIGAN PUBLIC RADIO!

Sunday, May 29, 2011

I am thrilled to announce that I've been asked to be a regular contributor to Michigan Radio, the nation's 8th-largest public radio station. I will be contributing essays from my latest memoir, It's All Relative, which coincide with our holidays, in addition to special segments such as MPR's "Life Before Technology" summer series (my essay, entitled "Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto," will kick off the series; air date TBD).

My first essay for Michigan Radio -- excerpted from It's All Relative -- aired Memorial Day weekend, and was a powerful and heart-tugging remembrance of Memorial Days past and present. I truly hope you enjoy, and share, this story, and all of my holiday pieces, and that -- if they call to you -- you share them with your own, local NPR stations, too. The reaction to my Memorial Day essay has, to date, been humbling and overwhelming.

Here is the link to the story on MPR:

http://www.michiganradio.org/post/author-wade-rouse-remembers-memorial-day

To say I am thrilled to be part of Michigan Radio -- and a small part of NPR -- on a regular basis would be the equivalent of saying, "I kinda like lip shimmer." These pieces not only showcase my combo of humor and poignancy but also my work on a larger basis. (And I always like to think I have a great reading voice, like Morgan Freeman ... but I think that's my med's talkin').

An author is constantly asked to build his or her "platform," meaning getting exposure for your work, yourself, your brand. That's where a writer often finds himself at a disadvantage to celebrities or politicians who write (Tori Spelling, Chelsea, Sarah Palin), because we don't have the exposure they do, and, as a result, our sales lag behind them, though we are often expected to achieve similar levels.

This is a huge step in that direction, and I give huge thanks to Jenn White (host of MPR's "All Things Considered") and Zoe Clark (a producer and host at MPR), for giving me the chance.

My essays will be appearing on www.michigan.radio.org in the coming months. For those in the Mitten, you can listen to 91.7 FM in Detroit/Ann Arbor, 91.1 FM in Flint, and 104.1 FM in West Michigan. Everyone can listen online at michiganradio.org ... and, again, you can share my essays with your local NPR stations and tell them you want Wade. (And, really, who doesn't?)

Happy Memorial Day!

Possibly my TWO favorite forms of entertainment, FINALLY rolled into one-Wade Rouse's stories and Public Radio! It's at least as genius as the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. I will look forward to hearing from you regularly!

Every day and night i think of him and always wish he could come back to me, I was really worried and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help get ex back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try.

How I Got My Ex Husband Back..Am so excited to share my testimony of a real spell caster who brought my husband back to me. My husband and I have been married for about 6 years now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Aluya   can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 48 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Aluya Powerful Love Spell that really works. If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. Email him at: aluya.48hoursspelltemple@gmail.com.  or whatsapp him on: +2348055431163

EFFECTIVE AND POWERFUL LOVE SPELL,LOTTERY SPELL,MONEY SPELL CASTER DR OJOKA   
LOVE SPELLS THAT WORKS I am sharing this testimony to partners suffering in their relationships because there is an enduring solution.
My husband left me and our 2 kids for another woman for 3 years. I tried to be strong just for my kids but I could not control the pains that torment my heart. I was hurt and confused. I needed a help, so i did a research on the internet and came across a site where I saw that Dr. Ojoka a spell caster, can help get lovers back. I contacted him and he did a special prayer and spells for me. To my surprises, after some days, my husband came back home. That was how we reunited again and there was a lot of love, joy and peace in the family.

I'm brenna wood from the US. White Caucasian Female. I'm 43 years old and i got married at the age of 25, I have only two children and i was living happily. After five years of my marriage my husband behavior became so strange that I don’t really understand what was going on. He packed out of the house to another woman’s house and I love him so much that i never dream of losing him, i tried my best to make sure that my husband get back to me but all to no avail, i cried and cried seeking for help. I discussed it with my best friend Alison and she told me she can help me. She told me of a man called Dr. Ojoka, she told me he is a very great man and a real man that can be trusted and there is nothing concerning love and Pregnancy issues he cannot solve and she told me how he has helped her and countless number of people in restoring their relationship. I quickly contacted his email address at dr.ojokaspelltemple@gmail.com I explain all my problem to him, he told me that I should not worry that all my problems will be fine. Presently, I am very happy I got my husband back to me now and we are living happily with so much love for each other. What app him at +2348144172934

2 weeks to was our marriage anniversary but my husband decided to serve me with a divorce letter.
I have cried to my husband’s family to save our marriage at least for the sake of our kids. He is just fooled to have forsaken his family for a university girl, I am so depressed to the verge of committing suicide but when I look at my 3 years old son I just can’t anymore.
Just 3 days ago my I was told they went to Bahamas for vacation when he is still being payment on his child support, I have sold my car just to keep paying the mortgage. I have given my all to my children and left with absolutely nothing but my breadth. My sister saw my condition when she came to see her nieces and Nephew, she forced me to contact lovespelldoctor0@gmail. com, Since that moment my life has changed. I has just been 48 hours and guess what? I have my car back, my husband is back home, and left the stupid bitch in Bahamas. I have never seen anything work this fast in my entire 42 years of my life.
My husband gave me his car, and drove me to court yesterday to renew our vow. I am so happy that my marriage is working again and things are back to normal in just 48 hours. My husband contacted me immediately the love dr Finished the spell. It was instantly. I am still in shock waiting to see how long this will last. But for now it feels like heaven, because my husband is right inside with me, just like we first met when I agreed to marry him.
The love doctor said it is forever. I will keep testifying if this spells forever just like he guaranteed. Go get your lover back now.
