Our Hearts Go Out to Dick Stevens and His Family

Mr. Richard Thomas Stevens peacefully passed away at his home on Sunday, April 28 2013 at the young age of 71. Dick’s endearing smile and sense of humor will sadly be missed by us all who knew him but his passion for literature and the spoken word will be irreplaceable.   His desire began at an early age and developed a deep appreciation in the early 60’s during his time at The University of Minnesota where he graduated with a BA in English Literature. After graduation he advanced his skills at RCA radio as a Producer and Marketing Executive developing and promoting the art of Radio Broadcasting. His talents for developing the “live performance” and his script writing skills were honed to a fine edge with CBS radio in New York City. At his time at CBS radio he established many long-term friendships and business abilities that helped him on his journey.  His stories about the “good old days” at CBS radio will always be an integral part of who Dick was and how most of us will carry on his memory retelling the stories to our friends and colleagues. Dick was a wonderful business man and mentor.  His leadership and passion were excelled when Dick moved to EMC Corporation and Digital Excellence where he passed on his love of literature to his fellow workers and created a reputation of excellence recognized from sea shore to sea shore and beyond. Dick’s passion for education, the arts and media development were obvious to all who were fortunate enough to cross paths with him.  He truly will be missed by the industry...

Everybody has a Story

The Definition of Music: Noun 1.  The are or science of combining vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion. 2.  The vocal or instrumental sound produced in this way/ Music is an interest that is shared amongst cultures all over the world. Music touches our hearts, emotions, beliefs, and feelings in so many ways. We use music to escape from our problems, express ourselves, to become inspired, to celebrate and to come together. In fact, music is found to have such a strong effect on healing our mind, body, and soul that Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s hospital has created a music therapy program for its patients. Music therapist Jenny Plume decided to make a CD with the patients at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s hospital. The CD was called “Everybody has a Story” and the music was written and inspired by the patients. Each song demonstrates the patient’s strength, personality, and creativity. Many great Nashville artists got wind of this vehicle used for healing and generously volunteered their talents by preforming the music written by the children. Some of the artist include but are not limited to; Phil Vassar, Alison Krauss, Melinda Doolittle, Amy Grant, and Faith Hill. The ADS Group also wanted to make their contribution to the cause and donated 7,800 packaged discs of the children’s music. If you would like to contribute to this wonderful cause please Click Here. All proceeds benefit the Julian T. Fouce Music therapy Fund at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. http://www.childrenshospital.vanderbilt.org/guide.php?mid=10134...

Booking it to BEA

Nothing is as simple and gratifying as purchasing a new book. The cover of a new book is always smooth and shiny; the pages lay flat and crisp. The chemical makeup of a book releases a mild odor of paper, ink, and glue as the pages flip from one to the next. The rewarding action of turning the page reveals a new sequence of words drawing its reader closer to the climax. Once the end is reached, the book can be neatly displayed on a bookshelf and referenced in future discussions. Times have changed in the book industry over the last decade due to advancements in technology. Authors and readers are no longer restricted to bookstores and libraries, instead they can choose from multiple facets of electronic devices as well as a variety of different media outlets. Even though the physical element of turning the page may be gratifying and familiar, the convenience of simply clicking a button for instant access to unlimited resources online may turn reading a bound book into an old habit. If you are an avid reader, writer, editor, or publisher, Book Expo America, located at the Javits Center in New York City is the place to be, come May 30th-June 1st. Exhibitors at BEA will be introducing a variety of new products and services on  how writers can effectively reach their readers with the use of different mediums. In addition this special event allows readers to come face to face with up–and–coming, bestseller, and, fan favorite, authors. The ADS Group will also be attending BEA to meet with new and existing clients, in addition...
