"The Weekly Dish" April 27
April 27, 2012 - Trisha Smith
Sleep in this morning? Tune in here to "The Weekly Dish" community and arts radio show.
"The Weekly Dish" radio show airs live each Friday morning from Wailuku on KAOI 1110Am&96.7Fm, provides a "delightful recipe of Maui's community and entertainment news."
Mr. Groovy Shawn Michael and I cruised into the weekend with a fresh and informative radio broadcast, highlighting a variety of events, individuals and stories that shape our beautiful community on Maui.
Endless love to Groovy and my engineer Garry for helping me rock out these weekly broadcasts, and mahalo to the Maui Weekly for all their support. They not only supply interesting and compelling community stories for us to report each week, but also allows us to use the paper's Website for this radio blog. Cool.
Much love to all of our supporters that make the show possible, such as Stella Blues Cafe, Ambrosia Martini Lounge, Body Alive Yoga and Movement Studio, Wailuku Coffee Company and Three's Surf Lounge. I have the coolest set of sponsors around, with community-conscious owners that put their heart and souls into providing a fine small business establishment on Maui. Thanks for being awesome!
Also, kudos to our guests and small biz family that get up bright and early to share their stories on our little radio show that could.
And, of course, we are blessed to welcome our bon-vi-vant Paul Janes-Brown and his rousing "Let's Talk More..." segments each week. (Read PJB's review of Maui's Art of Trash exhibit via the link below. Good stuff!)
Peruse the links below to discover the main topics we covered today, and double click on the images below to see what's da happs in our "Maui Music Notes" segment.
Thanks to today's special guests, including Jennifer Faught from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). I met this wise gal on the open waters last Monday when I covered NOAA's Adopt a Drifter Program involving a few lucky local high school participants. (Listen here to discover how the deployment went, and also visit the link below for more information on the program. Read my front page story next week in the Maui Weekly.)
Also, much love to our friend, 'ukulele wonder Derick Sebastian, who stopped by to talk story about his blossoming career and upcoming performances. This humble yet bold Maui talent will open the evening tonight at Stella Blues for the King Paris showcase, which features the pristine guitar playing of Mr. Rick Vito and the forceful presence of Mick Fleetwood. (And yes, he will be dressed as a genie.)
Rick's a class act, and we were fortunate to get him live on the air this morning. And, in fact, we were the first introduce Rick and Derick live, as both came together for this event through trusty sources and faith in YouTube video. ;-)
Tune in to hear the entire interview below. You can skip to around 40 minutes into the show if you like.

Thanks for listening!
Have a safe and fun weekend in paradise! Keep it real, hear the music and live life to the fullest, and be grateful all the while.
Peace. Love. Aloha.

We welcomed special guest Derick Sebastian to the studio this morning. This 'ukulele virtuoso is opening tonight for the King Paris, featuring the wonders of Rick Vito, Mick Fleetwood and other esteemed talents. Derick is a dear friend of mine, and always great to talk story with. We're so proud of all he's accomplished with his hard work and humble nature. "Stop. 'Uke. Listen!"
