"The Weekly Dish" April 5, 2013

Aloha Friday!

I hope everyone's week was wonderful, and if not, well, it's over now! TGIF!  ;-)

We're stoked to share a variety of Maui's community and entertainment news every Friday on KAOI 1110Am/96.7Fm. It's incredible how much information we can share in just an hour...

Listen to today's show here, and peruse the links and fliers below to grasp the goods we served up this morning live from Wailuku.

I know my co-host Shawn Michael and I really appreciate all the support and love our audience and small business 'ohana have extended to us since August 2010. You rock!

How are we doing? You know you can always email us at dishairwaves@gmail.com with any questions, compliments, complaints or community information you want us to share. Follow us on FB via www.facebook.com/theweeklydish, where you can post comments and learn about what's up around town.

A BIG mahalo to our dear friends Anu Yagi and Rachel Gonzalez for cruising into the studio to join the party. I really admire both of these courageous, talented and lovely ladies. I'm thrilled to feature them any day.

Anu welcomed us to one of our new monthly segments, where we will feature the Aloha Shares Network, a Maui-based reuse cooperative managed by Maui Recycling Group, Inc. Sign up to share by visiting alohashares.org. Learn more about the smart eco heroes with heart  via https://www.facebook.com/alohashares?ref=ts&fref=ts.

Rachel is rockin' the block up at 1995 West Main Street in Wailuku with her two stellar businesses, Body Alive Yoga & Movement Studio and Exotic Eye Tattoo. Tonight's EXHALE! event during Wailuku First Friday is where you want to be, and there's also FREE yoga class with Miss G before the party at 4:45 p.m. "Namaste, bitches!"

Thanks to Katy Rexford and Aloha Bluegrass Band for calling in! What an impressive group of musicians with the ambition and passion to not only entertain, but also educate through their talents. Learn more about their efforts www.alohabluegrassband.com, and hear their latest tracks via https://soundcloud.com/alohabluegrass. You can also see them live in action tonight at Stella Blues Cafe.

Thanks to our small business 'ohana, our listeners and the isle of Maui for being so groovy.
