TWYK is a live-interactive call-in talk show that is both enlightening and informative. We provide the forum to discuss secular issues from a spiritual perspective. The conversation that is typically only addressed outside of the church will be addressed head on by Pastor Jones. As you can imagine, this often provides the opportunity for healthy and passionate discussion.
We invite you to call in and Talk What You Know!

He had been freelance writing about restaurants since college and has appeared in the Times Picayune, Gulf Coast Arts Review, The Liquid and The Heart of Baton Rouge.

NOTN – “Talk What You Know” Variety Hour
Bob B has joined the New Orleans Talk Network Wednesday morning lineup on the Talk What You Know show. Specifically, Bob B broadcasts live on NOTN his “Variety Hour” on the Wednesday morning segment from 8:00 to 9:00am. Dutifully titled as such to bring the audience a Humpday relaxation from the hard hitting, heavy duty topics on the days preceding and following. His emphasis is on the visual from his TV background rather than traditional audio transmissions.
Since the initial broadcast, he introduced a weekly free raffle for anyone to participate by simply registering (full name, email address and zip code) on the website VIP form or by telephone to the station.
You only need to register once to be eligible for all raffles. Calling/texting in to the show adds additional chances for audience to win.
To date, Mardi Gras souvenirs, art sports memorabilia and fashion elements. Vendors are always welcome to submit their products or services to supplement the awards while promoting themselves.
As you will note from his background, he’s well versed in dining/chefs, film, art, events and personalities; so, tune in to see many segments of our community culture to be featured.
NOATV/WTIX – Restaurant Revue
Bob parlayed his knowledge into a refreshing radio show(1999 – WTIX 690am) as a forerunner to his weekly, hour long cable television show, called Restaurant Revue (2000 – 2016 NOATV) It’s not another cooking show! It’s not another re-hash of the same well known restaurants reflecting the subjective whims of the pretentious critic. The chef/owner of the weekly, featured restaurant kibitzed with Bob over the menu and field calls from the listening audience to talk live with Bob and his guests.
What is Restaurant Revue, you ask?
It’s an economic engine intended to drive customers to our restaurant rather than merely giving out recipes or … focus is on NEW restaurants/chefs whose need for diners is most critical during its infant stage with big overhead required to open/renovate staff and open. Any restaurant can have a bad day or service, if the chef is absent, wait staff is short or other technical reason. None is reason not to visit early. Besides we all love to be able to tell/impress our family and friends with tales from the newest on the block. Samples can be viewed at his website or on vimeo.com
NOATV – Reel Revue, R-tist Revue, Real Revue were half hour live shows on NOLA ‘s culture and personalities
Bro Al Mims
Daily Inspiration with Pastor Donald R. Jones
You can not pray for an A on a test and study for a B. You cannot pray for a faithful relationship and live a unfaithful life. You cannot pray for something and act less. Don't question God and his abilities when your actions don't match your prayers. You cannot afford to be casual in your obedience.
