The Weekly Dish Jan. 27

January 27, 2012 - Trisha Smith
Enjoy this morning's episode of this fun and informative talk variety show.

My co-host Shawn Michael (Groovy) and I glide onto the airwaves of KAOI1110Am & 96.7Fm each and every Friday morning after 7 a.m., and deliver a hip and community-conscious radio show for Maui audiences to dig into before their weekends take flight.

Each week, we feature the Maui Weekly newspaper, an arts and theatre segment called "Let's Talk More... " with our bon-vi-vant ("one that enjoys the good life") Paul Janes-Brown, highlight cool and benevolent small businesses and disclose the weekend's hottest music events during our "Maui Music Notes" section.

I'll try to write as much as I can in this blog, but limited due to my recent hand injury. After the 6-cm slice heals on my right hand, I promise to keep up with this blog and episode log much better. (I owe it to my fans whom don't rise before the sun, as The Weekly Dish crew does each Friday morning, so this blog on the Maui Weekly Website is a nice way to keep up with our Friday broadcasts.)

This Aloha Friday morning, Groovy Shawn Michael and I cruised into the weekend with news and views from the Maui Weekly, a sweet spread of small biz highlights and we discussed the latest happs within Maui's eclectic arts and music scene. Special guests included athletic angel Ben Prangnell of Basketball Maui to discuss the "Hoops for Hope" event tomorrow and one of my favorite environmental advocates stopped by, Kuhea Paracuellas from Haleakala National Parks. Kuhea is the former Maui County Environmental Coordinator, under Mayor Tavares, and she stopped by to discuss some incredible internship opportunities for Maui's keiki and college students. Ben and Kuhea are great role models for our island youth! I'm thrilled they were able to join us, and are always welcomed back. :-)

I was thrilled to welcome my good friend and Ambrosia co-worker, Tiare Sua, to the show. DJ LaRage, as she goes by behind the decks, graced us with her bright spirit this morning, as she gets ready for her fun and fabulous birthday party tonight. (Hau'oli la hanau mamas!) Tiare spins every Tuesday at Ambrosia, and she always keeps the party jumping. When she's not night-lighting, she's volunteering in the community as well as working for the Maui AIDS Foundation. Hear what she has to say in today's episode.

The Weekly Dish rocked into your morning with an energizing interview from the HAPPY HAOLES, a new punk band on Maui that hits the stage at Three's Bar & Grill TONIGHT for the Order Of The White Rose (OWR) show. I was stoked to invite my pal Jasn Basn to the show, and I'm interested to see where this fun project goes for him and his youthful band mates, guitarist Cody Saito and drummer Anthony Nardella.

OWR is working its way back to the recording studio to lay down a new album in 2012, and this fierce showcase tonight of all things punk is just a stepping stone in their musical journeys. Kudos to OWR guitarist Steve Hart and da Robertson brothas, Nate and Noah, for always "keeping it real" and throwing out quality punk anthems us fan can't get enough of. And their live performance power?! Wow. Come experience it tonight within Three's Surf Lounge in Kihei. The punk cover band, The Satter Day Saints, kicks off the evening around 10 p.m., followed by the new explosive trio, the Happy Haoles.

Also, tonight at Stella Bllues, the illustrious Dave Nelson will be fulfilling tye-dye dreams, so stop by their if you want to boogie down with some great, down-home folks. I believe Randall Rospond and his Hillbillies are opening, so pristine musicianship is on-tap all evening.

Just tune in via the KAOI log link on the right of this page, and hear what you've been missing.

As always, a BIG mahalo to KAOI Radio for all their support, and of course much love to the Maui Weekly for supplying this blog space and a fine community publication to report live on the local airwaves. And The Weekly Dish wouldn't exist without our fabulous sponsors, including 808 Deli, Stella Blues Cafe, Ambrosia Martini Lounge, Body Alive Yoga and Movement Studio, Wailuku Coffee Company and Three's Bar & Grill.

Hahaha... I guess I could write a handful about this morning's show! My pinky and thumb have made skills. ;-)

Thanks everyone for digging into The Weekly Dish-a delightful recipe for Maui's community and entertainment news. Keep it real Maui. Aloha!

Trish :o)
