Behind the Lens on The “Bad” Brad Berkwitt Show with Retired Boxer Ruben Galvan

By Debbie “D2” Edwards

What is strength? Is strength the ability to lift a certain amount of weight? Is strength the ability to pull a certain load? Is it some special prowess reserved for just a few?

Boxers desire to possess strength. This strength can be a useful tool for gaining victory over opponents. But there is a type of strength that is more enduring than that of physical strength, and if one possesses this type of strength, it can help to overcome the most formidable of opponents, and even multiple opponents of differing natures.

Ruben Galvan possesses such a strength, and I could not help to realize this by some of the things that were discussed when Brad interviewed him recently. Honestly, I was very eager to put my thoughts on paper, because he is such a strong person, and in hearing of his experiences, I had a burning desire to share them, as I know how beneficial it would be to many people who I know and love dearly.

Behind the Lens on The “Bad” Brad Berkwitt Show with Boxing Promoter, Former Professional Fighter, Actor & Restaurant Owner Bobby Hitz

By Debbie “D2” Edwards

Each of us only has one life to live. Ideally, we will live our lives to the fullest. We would pursue our passions, live our dreams, and dare to do things that we might only have fantasized about. And, in the process of living our lives, we create memories and share learnings that make it all worthwhile. Every bump in the road, every detour, every u-turn could possibly lead us to something majestic.

If we are fortunate enough to meet someone who has fearlessly lived their life, who has followed different interests, and has had fun along the way, then perhaps we should pay attention and reflect on our own lives in hopes that we too might pursue a passion.

Brad and I had the distinct pleasure of spending time with professional boxer, promoter, musician, actor, restaurateur, and semi-pro football player Bobby Hitz. The only thing that comes close to equaling the absolute pleasure of sitting in on his interview was dining at his restaurant, Giglio’s State Street Tavern, in Chicago. I absolutely enjoyed every minute of hearing his recounting of stories, improv, experiences, and the food! Oh my goodness! The tiramisu! The cheesecake! The Chicken Sinatra……..Fuggedaboutit….

Behind the Lens on The “Bad” Brad Berkwitt Show with Former Professional Fighter Carlos “The Force” Tite

By Debbie “D2” Edwards

“Treat people how you want to be treated.”

What a profound statement. Unfortunately, this value has been lost amongst so many in our modern era. Too many people lack the consideration, compassion, and empathy to live their lives by these words, and yet, if people are balanced, and treated others how they want to be treated, how much more peaceful would this world be.

Recently, Brad interviewed retired middleweight fighter Carlos “The Force” Tite, and those are the words that he lives his life by. Carlos is beloved in Northwest Indiana, and I can see why this is the case. Although he fought in the 80’s, people still know him, remember him, and love him. The reasons are obvious.

Behind the Lens On The “Bad” Brad Berkwitt Show with Former Professional Boxer Jimmy “The Fighting School Teacher” Holmes

By Debbie “D2” Edwards

Brad and I dusted off the camera, cleaned the lens, and set the studio back up recently, and boy oh boy was it worth it!

We both love diversity and talented people, and we hit pay dirt with our return to the RSR Web TV Channel on YouTube with guest, Jimmy Holmes. After a nearly two year lay-off, during which we relocated from Oklahoma to Indiana and I changed jobs, we were both anxious and ready to get back to filming the show.

When Brad told me that we were interviewing Jimmy, I knew that this interview would be special. Brad spoke of Holmes a few years ago when he reminisced about a fight that he had seen when he lived on the East Coast and was ringside for. He briefed me on Jimmy, advising me that he was a former professional boxer, a school teacher, and a musician. Continue reading

Behind the Lens on The “Bad” Brad Berkwitt Show with Crooner Jim Bulanda

By Debbie “D2” Edwards

Music is powerful! It has the ability to impact our feelings, motivating us sometimes, relaxing us other times. Good music transcends years. Great music transcends decades, perhaps even centuries. Those of us who have varying musical tastes really appreciate the songs of yesteryear; those songs that express love and passionate sentiments in the classiest, most genuine manner. Songs that one can relax, have a cold, soothing drink, and reminisce about the memories that are marked with special songs.

Brad recently interviewed local crooner Jim Bulanda, and what a treat that was! Jim’s claim to fame is that he specializes in all things Sinatra, and anyone who knows Brad knows that he absolutely loves Frank Sinatra. They both were in their element, as they talked all things Sinatra. Continue reading

Behind the Lens on The “Bad” Brad Berkwitt Show with Former Professional Boxer & World Title Challenger Jack “The Kid” Callahan

By Debbie “D2” Edwards

None of us know who we might inspire. We may not realize the positive impact of our perseverance. We may also fail to realize how many things in life come full circle. In the day to day running of our lives, we often don’t stop to ponder on things because we are busy. I chose the word “ponder” as opposed to “think” because, in my opinion, it denotes a deeper concentration, something more than the obvious, something that is reflected on, analyzed, mulled over, and perhaps it is then that we might glean a point that might have gone unnoticed.

Brad interviewed former professional fighter & world title challenger Jack “The Kid” Callahan recently, and I pondered on some of the things that they discussed. Brad asked Jack about the shirt that he was wearing, which happened to be a Roberto Duran shirt. Jack responded that Roberto Duran was his favorite fighter and the reason why he started fighting.
