American Ground Radio features interviews and analysis of the day’s news, but with the uncommon perspective that when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
Hosted by Louis R. Avallone and Stephen Parr, along with “mamas” Teri Netterville and Denise Arthur, American Ground Radio is for anyone who believes there is greatness within each of us – that we can do great things, and that this country can be great again – if we can only focus on what’s working, and how to do more of that, instead of just focusing on what’s broken, and how to fix it.
There’s a saying that the pessimist complains about the wind, and the optimist expects it to change, while the leader adjusts the sails.
This show is for those of you who want to adjust the sails.
Listen to us on American Ground Radio beginning at 5 PM every Saturday afternoon on 101.1 FM The Answer and streaming live at www.1011fmtheanswer.com and be sure to “Like” us on Facebook.

Teri is known for using her humor and sharing her faith when discussing life issues with her listeners.
As a mom, the one thing she hopes to instill in her children is a genuine love for others. Her motto is simple:
“Be good to people. It really is that simple. Just be good to people. It cost nothing, but means everything.”
She hopes to help her listeners keep things in perspective. She also hopes to help them try and find the good in everyone and in every situation.

“We are hardworking middle America. We are members of Grace United Methodist Church were we love to sit along sinners and messy people just like ourselves. We love God, family and America.”
“I have always been fortunate to be a part of a group of Mamas like myself since the boys were very small. Soccer moms, basketball moms, baseball moms, football moms, PTA moms and moms of any color, creed or religion. I love being a mom, it is my greatest gift from God. I am not perfect at it but I never stop trying to get it right. My friend Teri Netterville and I hit it off instantly when our boys were Freshman football players at Byrd. Our hearts and beliefs run parallel and we solve all the world’s problems daily. We love to laugh and go into our southern personalities with our own special sense of humor. We are just trying to be real and relatable to all Mamas that have a voice and want to engage or mamas that are trying to find their voices and feel safe with other mamas.”
