For more than 40 years, Tony Brown's voice has been synonymous with the sounds of the night in the Delaware Valley. Tony's career in radio began on Temple University's WRTI in 1969, but his interest in radio actually began to develop around age 4.
Tony performs on "Quiet Storm", the theme song for his radio program, that he co-wrote with Bert Willis and Philadelphia musicians Rob Arthurs and Rudy Gay.
Tony's well-ordered priorities are God; his wife Sunshine and their family; career; rest; leisure activities; more rest; and various hobbies and other interests. He credits his success and longevity in radio to God and his loyal listeners, "without whom the past 40+ years would not have been possible... I'd love to be on the radio for many more."
Happy Birthday to film and television actor and film producer Samuel Leroy Jackson (born December 21, 1948). After becoming involved with the Civil Rights Movement, he moved on to acting in theater at Morehouse College, and then films. He had several small roles such as in the film Goodfellas before meeting his mentor, Morgan Freeman, and the director Spike Lee. After gaining critical acclaim for his role in Jungle Fever in 1991, he appeared in films such as Patriot Games, Amos & Andrew, True Romance and Jurassic Park. In 1994, he was cast as Jules Winnfield in Pulp Fiction, and his performance received several award nominations and critical acclaim.
Jackson has since appeared in over 100 films including Die Hard with a Vengeance, The 51st State, Jackie Brown, Unbreakable, The Incredibles, Black Snake Moan, Shaft, Snakes on a Plane, as well as the Star Wars prequel trilogy and small roles in Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill Vol. 2 and Inglourious Basterds.
He played Nick Fury in Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, and Marvel's The Avengers, the first five of a nine-film commitment as the character for the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise. Jackson's many roles have made him one of the highest-grossing actors at the box office. Jackson has won multiple awards throughout his career and has been portrayed in various forms of media including films, television series, and songs. In 1980, Jackson married LaTanya Richardson, with whom he has a daughter, Zoe.
In October 2011, Jackson surpassed Frank Welker as the highest grossing film actor of all-time.
