"The Weekly Dish" February 22, 2013

Aloha friends!

Thanks for tuning to "The Weekly Dish" radio show on KAOI 1110Am/96.7Fm and here online!

Kihei and Wailuku didn't see the monsoons, so we were dry and dandy this morning! Much love to our North Shore and Upcountry pals. Be safe! Oh, and I heard there be will be snow on Hawai'i Island's summits. Pray for some on Haleakala. I've seen it before... so cool!

Our good buddy James Bowersox of MOTHxp joined us in the studio, and well, it got a little silly at times. No surprises there!

I'm really proud to support MOTHxp, my favorite band in Hawai'i! Not only are the James(s) like brothers to me, but I hold the utmost respect for them musically and creatively all-around. They've done a fine job over the last three years, and take the chances that many are too scared to.

MOTHxp's original music is some of the best to come out of the islands in years, and it's different and daring. "Tool meets Cirque du Soleil" is what they have called themselves at times, but when you experience a MOTHxp show and listen to their album, it's so much more. Layers of intricately composed progressive rock, powered by the slick skills of guitarist James "Cotton" Hartman and drummer Bowersox. Each song takes you on a journey and evokes something inside of you, maybe even a beast inside us all.  It's forceful and alluring at the same time..

Congrats to MOTHxp on their slots at SXSW's Red Gorilla Festival in Austin next month, and much love to Tammy Miranda Music Productions for her kokua. The boys also have some exciting new management representation to take them to a new level. Thanks to Om Concerts and Fellerman Entertainment for their support! Very cool guys.  ;-)

We played their MOTHxp's track "Taparoo" to end the episode, but you can enjoy them live as they playing for the first time in over 6 months on Maui. You can help the guys get to Austin by buying their music off www.mothxp.com and coming to these two shows:

*Saturday, Feb. 23, at Charley's in Pa'ia
*Saturday, March 2, in Three's Surf Lounge in Kihei

We also talked to birthday boy, Paul Janes-Brown! We love him and hope he has a great weekend on O'ahu and Upcountry. He had an array of theatre and arts news to share.

Thanks to the Maui Weekly for keeping up the great community reporting! We love reporting the good news, views and gripes of this intriguing isle. Check out www.mauiweekly.com and these article links below:

All nine members of the state Land Use Commission were present on
Thursday, Feb. 7. By a 6-3 vote, they found the landowners in

How's it going, folks? Thanks for following "The Weekly Dish" radio show, and keeping up with our online adventures as well as tuning to the KAOI airwaves each and every Friday morning.

This morning, we kept it cool and cruised through another fantastic voyage. My co-host Groovy Shawn Michael brought his sweet wife Jem to the studio for the ride, and we were graced with the raspy morning essence of such sexy and sassy performers as musician Erin Smith and creative alchemist Rachel DeBoer.  We caught Rachel for some "Pillow Talk" about tonight's "Kiss Kiss" cabaret spectacular at the 'Iao Theater.

Erin is back on Maui to perform her first "Supper Club" with Stella Blues. (See flier below!) We went old school, and played a little "Kihei Town" off "Don't Slow Down" of 2009 from The Throwdowns. You can also catch her at Whale Day tomorrow with The Throwdowns. They go on after 12 p.m. See you there!

Whale Day is one of my favorite days in Kihei! All you need to know about tomorrow's big hooray for the kohala (whale) is in this week's Maui Weekly. Pick up a copy, or visit the handy links here.




Also, take some time to visit these links in the Maui Weekly, and keep in touch with your neighborhood, and keep tabs on the eclectic music and arts communities.





Also, next weekend begins the MOTHxp shows on Maui in an effort to raise funds for their trip to Austin. First show is at Charley's in Pa'ia on Feb. 23, and then again on Saturday, March 2, at Three's in Kihei. Visit their latest promo video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cnNnIGsanD0 and keep tabs with the boys online at www.mothxp.com.

Thanks to our small biz 'ohana, our bon-vi-vant Paul Janes-Brown and most of all, you listeners. I hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend!

"The Weekly Dish" February 8, 2013

Well hello!

It's another beautiful day here in paradise, and we're feeling blessed on Maui as our friends on the Mainland get doused with flurries. At least you get to snowboard!  I know, I'm a spoiled climate cutie now...  ;-)

Anyhow, The Weekly Dish delivered its usual perky pleasures and useful news on 1110Am/96.7Fm within the KAOI Studio in Wailuku. (FYI: Listeners can stream live via the LIVE link on this page or you can always visit this page to catch up.)

Excuse the recording's technical difficulties this morning, as at the beginning of the show, we had some piercing mic issues. I'm going to the big punk rock show at Hard Rock tonight, so I guess it doesn't matter if I have quality hearing or not.  :-9

Besides our stellar small biz 'ohana, the Maui Weekly goods, and arts & music scene scoop, we shared benevolent stories from our special guests, including artist and community advocate Tim Garcia and Katherine Day for the Island Girl Pin-Ups' "Go Red Garden Party." Wonder women Tiare Sua and Dana Nitti of the Maui AIDS Foundation stopped in to dish the deal on the fabulous fundraiser this weekend, Mardi Gras Maui at the King Kamehameha Golf Club venue.

We also played the track "Sideways" off Sing the Body's new album, "Contrast." Check out this O'ahu band's latest effort via http://www.emusic.com/album/sing-the-body/contrast/13777372/, and buy it today. Good stuff. I can't wait til they return to Maui! Thanks to our buddy Bran Apeles for introducing us.

And don't forget about Three's Bar & Grill's big bash on Saturday in Kihei. I'm hosting the show, and we have a spectacular night planned for revelers. (See images below and visit http://www.mauiweekly.com/page/content.detail/id/510921/Three-s-Turns-3-Celebration-in-Kihei.html.) Congrats to our friends at Three's!

I don't say this enough, but much appreciation to my loyal engineer Garry, our bon-vi-vant Paul Janes-Brown and of course, Mr. Groovy Shawn Michael, for dealing with me. I love you all dearly, and couldn't do this wild ride without your patience, passion and wit.

And, thanks most of all to you, our listeners, for turning to The Weekly Dish, a delightful recipe for Maui's community and entertainment news. Keep it real.

Aloha ♥
