Island in the Storm: Jamie W. Moore
Storms of Assiral: Annie Morecambe
Brave the storm´´ von der AOR-Band Shy wurde ursprünglich im Jahr 1985 veröffentlicht und wird jetzt noch einmal als Collector´s Edition re-released. Die 1983 in Birmingham gegründete Band spielte eine Schnittmenge aus Hardrock / Glam Metal und AOR. Shy tourten mit Bon Jovi, Meat Loaf, Twisted Sister, Gary Moore und UFO. ´Brave The Storm´ war das Major-Debüt der Band und die Single ´Hold On (To Your Love)´ wurde seinerzeit von der Chart-Wertung ausgeschlossen weil die Erstauflage ein T-Shirt enthielt. Das mittlerweile gesuchte, zweite Album erscheint nun als wertiges Rock Candy-Remaster mit sechs Bonustracks und brandneuen Liner Notes.´´
Madison Moore is a single mother of two young boys. She´s not interested in dating or partaking in meaningless sex. Her only goal in life is to be a good mother and make life as normal as possible for her oldest son who is diagnosed with a learning disability. When Ryder Storm literally comes crashing into her home and turns her life upside down, she finds herself falling hard. Madison´s denial about her feelings and dismissal of his advancements only fuels Ryder´s determination to make her his. Madison may think she poses a challenge for Ryder, but victory will be his, and when all her defenses are down, he´ll be more than willing to deliver whatever she needs. 1. Language: English.

Why do our families have so much power over us? In The Storm-Tossed Family, best-selling author Russell Moore (Onward, Christianity Today´s 2016 ´´Book of the Year Award Winner´´) teaches listeners whether you are married or single, whether you long for a child or shepherding a full house, you are part of a family. Family is difficult because family - every family - is an echo of the gospel. Family can be the source of some of the most transcendent human joy, and family can leave us crumpled up on the side of the road. Family can make us who we are, and family can break our hearts. Why would this social arrangement have that much power, for good or for ill, over us? 1. Language: English. Narrator: George W. Sarris.

A 3,162 km race. A 48-year-old man. A 100-year-old bike. Made mostly of wood. That he built himself. Tim Moore sets off to recreate the most appalling bike race of all time. The notorious 1914 Giro d´Italia was an ordeal of 400-kilometre stages, cataclysmic night storms and relentless sabotage - all on a diet of raw eggs and red wine. Of the 81 who rolled out of Milan, only eight made it back. Committed to total authenticity, Tim acquires the ruined husk of a gearless, wooden-wheeled 1914 road bike with wine corks for brakes, some maps and an alarming period outfit topped off with a pair of blue-lensed welding goggles. From the Alps to the Adriatic the pair relive the bike race in all its misery and glory, on an adventure that is by turns bold, beautiful and recklessly incompetent.

History´s most appalling bike race was an ordeal of 400-kilometre stages, cataclysmic night storms and relentless sabotage - all on a diet of raw eggs and red wine. Of the 81 who rolled out of Milan, only eight made it back.

From the Alps to the Adriatic, the pair steadily fall to bits, on an adventure that is by turns bold, beautiful and recklessly incompetent.
Book of the Week on Radio 4 ´Gripping´ The Times´Exhilarating´ Sunday Times In an age when a storm was evidence of God´s wrath, pioneering meteorologists had to fight against convention and religious dogma to realise their ambitions. But buoyed by the achievements of the Enlightenment, a generation of mavericks set out to unlock the secrets of the atmosphere. Meet Luke Howard, the first to classify the clouds, Francis Beaufort, quantifier of the winds, James Glaisher, explorer of the upper atmosphere by way of a hot air balloon, Samuel Morse, whose electric telegraph gave scientists the means by which to transmit weather warnings, and at the centre of it all Admiral Robert FitzRoy: master sailor, scientific pioneer and founder of the Met Office. Peter Moore´s exhilarating account navigates treacherous seas, rough winds and uncovers the obsession that drove these men to great invention and greater understanding.
