Contact: Marty Angelo, 805-405-8174
HOLLYWOOD, Nov. 8, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- Prison Minister and author Marty Angelo is scheduled to appear live on the Vital Connection Radio Show on Mon. 11/12/12 at 10:05-11:00am (EST) on WHKP AM Radio. The show is also streamed online at: www.whkp.com/live365/1_ad.html and is available via Podcast after the morning show at: www.thevitalconnection.org/podcasts.
Angelo has been actively involved in prison and substance abuse ministry for over 30 years working with "the late Chuck Colson" at Prison Fellowship Ministries, Teen Challenge Ministries, the Drug Abuse Foundation of Palm Beach County Florida and Faith Farm Ministries of South Florida.
Angelo is also noted for his work with troubled celebrities making numerous court appearances and rehab referrals for several well-known actors, musicians and sports figures.
Marty Angelo worked in the entertainment business from 1965 to 1980 as a television producer, record promoter, disk jockey and personal manager for rock'n'roll bands. He received his first professional breaks from the late guitar legend Jimi Hendrix and the late Beatle George Harrison.
Though at times Angelo thought he achieved success, internally he always felt an emptiness in his heart, sensing his life had neither real meaning nor true purpose. Nothing ever seemed to matter to him. Therefore, he lived an out-of-control sin-riddled lifestyle.
Angelo was arrested in 1980 for two counts of possession of cocaine. Through this life-shattering event he experienced a "new beginning," a dramatic and electrifying conversion to Christianity. This miracle happened in 1981 prior to him serving two-and-a-half years in a federal prison. Angelo's life finally began to matter during that time as it took on a new meaning discovering God's true plan and purpose.
Angelo helped many prisoners during his incarceration explaining if God can change his life He can change anybody... including hardened convicts, drunkards and drug addicts.
Marty was released from prison in 1984 and is living his life as an example to other ex-convicts and former drug-addicts and alcoholics who want to serve God and be used by Him for His glory.
Marty Angelo is the author of two books, "Once Life Matters: A New Beginning" and "Vision of New Jerusalem: Now!" Both books are available in paperback and Kindle via Amazon.com.
