Local Radio Show Swoop’s World Celebrates 1 Year Anniversary Tonight with Guest Heather Crow Nelson

share this:

With 66 shows in the can, tonight’s 67th marks the one-year anniversary for Swoop’s World Radio. On December 9, 2009 Swoop and Peter launched Swoop’s World Radio on the BlogTalk Radio Network with the goal of tapping into the arts, culture, politics and lifestyle of Long Beach and Southern California.

One Year of Internet Radio

“We set out to assist the community with providing a voice, not the only voice in the community but an alternative voice,” stated Swoop, host of the show. “The ability of our listeners to interact with our guest by calling in to the show or joining in on the Internet chatline has given people the opportunity to communicate directly with their council members, political candidates, police chief, and more.”

“Also we enjoy collaborative efforts and getting out to community events” said co-host Peter, “We teamed up for several very informative segments with Ray Pok. Ray provided a lot of insight on city hall politics and tapped into some very interesting guests also. We have, for quite a while now, been teamed up with Taylor Nelson and Christopher Livingston of LBFoodReview.com who join us bi-weekly to talk about the local food and restaurant scene. We have also done live broadcasts such varied locales as the Restoration Trade Fair, Bike Fest 4th Street in Motion, We Olive on 2nd St., First Fridays at Ninos Restaurant, and we are teamed with Michelle Mangione to broadcast at her events during First Fridays at the Mirage.”

Anniversary Show: Spotlighting & Celebrating


Heather Crow Nelson

Swoop and Peter will use the anniversary show for “Spotlighting and Celebrating.” The first hour of the show will be dedicated to spotlighting a wonderful Local Star named Heather Crow Nelson.

Heather is a young woman that, besides being a devoted mother and wife, spends a great majority of her time giving back to the community. She’s tirelessly involved in charity work, volunteering and consistently involved with a number of different organizations.

After the first hour with Heather, Taylor and Chris from LB Food Review will join in for their regular bi-weekly segment. The team aims to celebrate and recap their first year of broadcast on the BlogTalk Radio network.

“We want to have fun and thank our listeners and guests for their support throughout the year, we basically broadcast once a week and, as of this week have now been listened to more than 10,000 times and we are truly honored,” said Swoop. “We’ll have past guests dropping by and calling in, and we will take a look back at some of the memorable shows and guests we’ve had including, two Olympic Medalists, an Academy Award Winner, a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, citizens, politicians, activists and many more.”

Moving forward the duo want to continue to provide relevant programming, stating their primary goal is to keep the conversation insightful, and entertaining, and to consistently produce radio shows that are timely, relevant and reflective of what is happening within the community each week.
