The archive was down for a bit, so it will take some time to get shows 4-12 from the station. They are however, coming soon. In the meantime, enjoy the first 3 shows in our fabulous Podcast player by clicking on the link above.
Steve Martindale sat in for Melissa on Show 29 which aired March 19, 2013. We had two filmmakers with shorts in the Sonoma International Film Festival. Tim Wetzel had two shorts called Creativity: Furnace and Creativity: The Artist. Florence Buchanan called us from New York about her short film, Right There.
Florence Buchanan called to talk about her absolutely touching short film, Right There. “The kids of PS234 ten years after 9/11.” You can see the trailer on the official website and also “like” the film on Facebook.
Show 28 aired on March 12, 2013 and we dedicated the show to the Sonoma International Film Festival. We brought in the man who coined the nickname for me, Frau Meow; the Guy Saturday to my Girl Friday; hospitality coordinator extraordinaire: Steve Martindale! Fresh of the boat from Canada, okay, well he drove here, but he was in the house never-the-less! (Photo credit: Deborah Prince)
Man down! I was too sick to go in for the show, stupid flu. But Jason Ghiselin was a rock star and helped Melissa through it! Thanks Jason! Show 27 aired on March 5, 2013. First, author Dina Falconi called in about her book. Local musician, Jim Fizgerald, came in to discusss his show at Murphy’s Irish Pub. Finally, we had Lily Diamond from San Francisco burlesque troupe, the Hot Pink Feathers talk about their new season.
Dina Falconi, author of Foraging & Feasting: A Field Guide and Wild Food Cookbook calls in to talk about the book, as well as inform us of things we would never think to eat!
Jim Fitzgerald came in to talk about his theatrical performance at Murphy’s Irish Pub in Sonoma. Scenes and Songs from Ireland. Just in time for St Patrick’s Day!
It was a benefit for the Avalon Players and their Shakespeare performances at Buena Vista Winery.
Lily Diamond is a pilates instructor in Sonoma, hosts pole dancing parties, and what brought her in to talk on the show? The Hot Pink Feathers, “where Carnival meets cabaret!”

Dmitra Smith was on the show with us again to fill us in on Static People’s most recent award. They were given Best Punk/Post Punk Artist 2013
from the Artists in Music Awards in Los
Angeles on February 7th!
Congratulations to a great local band.
Show 23 aired February 5, 2013 with another no show from Chris White. We did talk about his film in his abscence so if you’re curious about Sweet and Awful, you will still hear about it in the podcast. I will even give you some details below. We also talked with Joey Rassool, a fan film maker who is now working on a documentary about the tribute art. Finally, voice from The Syndicate, calls in to talk about voiceovers and her role in that series.
The project, Sweet and Awful, was successfully funded, but I’m unsure it’s status as I can’t find anything other than the Kickstarter page about it. Perhaps Chris White will see this post and give us a little update in the comments?
Click on his name above to see all of his other film projects.
Finally, you may remember from last weeks show, our guest Ryan S Fix called in about his new animated series, The Syndicate. From that show, voice talent, Leisa Jo Waller called in to talk about her acting/singing/voice acting history and a bit about working on this series.
We wish them both luck with this project.

Show 22 aired on January 29, 2013 with San Francisco bottle cap artist, Leigh Ellison in studio. We had our Random Topics segment in the middle of the show which extended quite a bit as our caller was very late on his call in. That would be filmmaker, Chris White. Here’s the scoop:
Artist Leigh Ellison makes some insanely awesome creations from bottle caps. You can wear her art, as you see in this photo, but you can also visit her larger mosaic pieces at various locations in San Francisco.
Unfortunately, Chris White who was supposed to call in about Sweet and Awful call too late in the show and we barely got a conversation with him. You can look into all of his films at these websites, and hopefully we’ll get him booked on the show again: Paris Mtn Scout, Facebook, and Kickstarter.
The exciting show! Bill Plympton told me he’d thank me at the Oscars. Don’t take my word for it. Listen to the podcast. We started with Dmitra Smith of Static People about music and upcoming shows. Bill Plympton called in to discuss his animated film, Cheatin’. Finally, Ryan S Fix called in to talk about his animated series, The Syndicate.
The amazing animator, Bill Plymton called us to discuss his new feature length animated film, Cheatin’. It was definitely a show highlight for me.
You can watch his production blog at his Kickstarter page. The project was successfully funded and the film should be finished sometime this summer. Follow his many projects at his website and he does have a page on Facebook.

The Syndicate will star some big voices including Marisa Tomei.
