I have had no luck researching this issue on the net. I suspect that it is a pro...

Q: Dear 100 Hour Board,So I was on my weekly internet walkabout when I found out about an intriguing off-shoot of the mainstream LDS faith, called the Church of Potter Christ.Started by Arnold Potter, he came to believe he was the reincarnation of Christ, or that the Spirit of Christ came to inhabit his body, making him the Messiah.What interested me is that he is said to have written a book of revelations and prophesies.

Birth of American Bossa Nova

One of America's first champions of Brazilian bossa nova was Felix Grant (above). A jazz disc jockey in Washington D.C., Grant hosted The Album Sound on WMAL. His voice had a soft, sophisticated on-air sound that caught the ear of listeners. Among those tuning into his show in 1960 was Dr. João Oliveira Santos, an economist and head of the International Coffee Agreement, a Brazilian trade group.
