"The Weekly Dish" May 11

May 11, 2012 - Trisha Smith
Miss this morning's live broadcast of your favorite talk variety show? No worries! Tune in here.

Happy Friday! Today's live recording was another fine adventure, and I'm so fortunate to highlight such incredible people that are sharing their gifts with this world, and making an impact right here at home on Maui.

And the stories from your favorite community publication, The Maui Weekly, always keep us on the pulse of our neighborhoods, environment and the humanitarian efforts that make this isle so special. Dig in through the pages of the paper's Website, and get in touch with the island and its wonderful people and events.

After we finally figured out the date, and where we were, haha, Mr. Groovy Shawn Michael and I welcomed an exceptional line-up of guests this morning onto the KAOI 1110Am&96.7Fm airwaves. Our Wailuku Coffee Company drinks helped us along the way. Thanks ladies for the early morning treats!

After our random opening notes, and our shout-out to the late, great Adam Yauch (MCA) of the Beastie Boys, we took a little time to extend our admiration to our nation's leader, President Barack Obama, and his announcement this week. If you tune in, you know how I feel on the subject, and this week has been a step forward for our society. I'm proud to be a citizen of his administration. Tune in to hear more!

"The Weekly Dish" was blessed to welcome travel photographer Daniel Sullivan of Maui to the studio, in support his new book, "Tribes of the Omo Valley." Our arts buddy and avid listener, Tim Garcia, introduced to this soulful talent, and the interview still gives me chicken skin right now. What an extraordinary story and we're so happy he shared his time with us. Listen in to the interview below to learn more about his work, and also find out what chainsaw madman Tim has been up to in 'Ulupalakua.

You may purchase his photography book online via Amazon now, which comes with a CD of the various tribes' music. So cool... Also, Daniel will be giving a presentation at the Hui No'eau in Makawao this Wednesday night in honor of the book release.

During our "Maui Music Notes" segment, we visited with the lovely singer/songwriter Sebrina Baron. She finished up some recording yesterday, and she is back at Stella Blues this Sunday for a special Mother's Day show, which will benefit Women Helping Women. Sebrina is such a sweetheart, and an "old soul." I'm happy to call her a friend and proud of her hard work on her music career. The future is bright, sista!

Also, thanks to Suzanne Kayian for all of her hard work, and to the host and vocal goddess Joy Fields for her magical touch. Most the ladies in the line-up for Sunday's show are students of vocal coach Joy. Listen in to hear more about the show, and double click on the second flier on this page.

Congrats to the James(s) of MOTHxp and their new bassist Chad Kaya as they got to play LA this last week, opening for Fishbone. (Check out a fun shot of the James "Cotton" Hartman and James Bowersox with one of today's special studio guests, Miss Lily Meola, from this summer at The Throwdowns party.)

And tune in via the first link on the page to hear about sweet Lily's blossoming singing career. We welcomed her mom Nancy and her for the second half of the show, and we had a lot of fun! Lily not only possesses an exquisite voice, but she's also a super nice and funny girl. I really admire her humble, playful and kind spirit, and I wish her the best on her road to success. (We got a little sample of her angelic voice with a cut from a live show last year where Lily performed a cover of "Syrup & Honey" by Duffy.)

Our girl Rachel G of Body Alive Yoga and Movement Studio recently opened her own tattoo lounge right next door called Exotic Eye Tattoo, at 1995 Main Street in the heart of Wailuku. She's on a special mission in San Fran right now, beautifying clients for Beautiful from Head to Toe. From original designs, to Polynesian, color, black & grey and cover-ups, they know Rachel G of Maui is where you want to get your next piece. Visit to learn more about Rachel's new venture.

I also played a song for my mommy, and yes, it was a Stevie Wonder track. No surprise there, if you know me! She's been such an important part of why I am the woman I am, and I thank her for her support, kindness and love all these years. <3

And there's so much more to discover from our fun and informative talk variety show! Check out all the haps at Stella's, Ambrosia Martini Lounge, Three's Surf Lounge and Charley's.

So, what are you waiting for?! Click on the first link, and dig in to this week's serving of "The Weekly Dish," a delightful recipe for Maui's community and entertainment news. Keep it real. Aloha!
