5/24: Destination Freedom Live at Dazzle
 
As always, "Destination Freedom" is presented true-to-form radio show in front of a live studio audience; at Dazzle Restaurant Tickets are $10 general admission. Monday May 24th at 7PM not only features the live broadcast on KGNU 88.5 FM Boulder 1390 Denver with our musical guests, but a an after show discussion with Black Veterans and the music from Haitian artists Sue and Jodel Charles. Enjoy the wonderful food and drinks as you take in the show.

The 761st distinguished itself by extraordinary gallantry, courage, professionalism and high esprit de corps displayed in the accomplishment of unusually difficult and hazardous operations in the European Theater of Operations from 31 October 1944 to 6 May 1945. During 183 days in combat, elements of the 761st - the first United States Army tank battalion committed to battle comprised of black soldiers - were responsible for inflicting thousands of enemy casualties and for capturing, destroying, or aiding in the liberation of more than 30 major towns, 4 airfields, 3 ammunition supply dumps, 461 wheeled vehicles, 34 tanks, 113 large guns, 1 radio station, and numerous individual and crew-served weapons. This was accomplished while enduring an overall casualty rate approaching 50 percent, the loss of 71 tanks, and in spite of extremely adverse weather conditions, very difficult terrain not suited to armor operations, heavily fortified enemy positions and units, and extreme shortages of replacement personnel and equipment. The accomplishments are outstanding examples of the indomitable spirit and heroism displayed by the tank crews of the 761st

This months show features an award-winning cast, including Donnie L. Betts, producer/director and filmmaker; Kurt Soderstrom, featured in all of Destination Freedom Shows; Damion Hoover actor in many Destination Freedom shows, Donahue Hayes, "Ma Rainey" ,singer/actor Michael Croan and Vietnam Vet. Vincent C. Robinson long time Denver performer.

This year is not only the 15th anniversary of No Credits Productions, the 12th anniversary of "Destination Freedom: Black Radio Days" but a very special anniversary for NCP founder Donnie L. Betts, who donated a kidney to his sister that is living with the complications of Lupus 10 years ago this March.
