Enjoy THE WEEKLY DISH, any time

April 8, 2011 - Trisha Smith
Missed Friday's show on KAOI 1110AM/96.7FM? No worries! Maui Weekly serves up past episodes of the isle's most exciting talk variety show.

Hey guys! I'm testing some new avenues to post THE WEEKLY DISH radio for your listening pleasure, any time you want. :-) My groovy co-host Shawn Michael and I realize that not everyone gets 2-4 hours of sleep per night and are up at the crack of dawn like us. We forgive you... haha. This a temporary resolution to post in a blog for now... progress will prevail! Thanks Lawrence for all your help! (Audio note: Please allow the show to download the entire link before you can listen to specific segments or jump around the hour. This will not be an issue, hopefully, in the future as we podcast.)

Check out the first link to listen to this morning's (Friday, April 8) episode, which featured special guest host Steve Hart of Order of the White Rose. (Genuine punk rockers that speak the truth, and take progressive actions in the community and environment are still alive and well! Right on. Open invitation to return, Steve... )

Follow the first link to hear what we had to say about his band and their upcoming show on the 16th @ Stella Blues. We also dove into some sensations from Fish Tank and Kanekoa—together tonight @ 3's!—in "Maui Music Notes." (Thanks Pete Sebastian aka Dish#1!) The remaining links are a groovy gateway to a few of my favorite small business owners.

FURTHERMORE—this is where Trish rambles on—haha:

I just want to say thanks to each and every one of our fabulous Friday listeners and guests for tuning in since last August. Lots of love to KAOI, especially my awesome engineer Garry and others for putting up with me as I've been mending the edges. The chance to do this show was kind of just thrown in my lap, and without any financial security or extra time to spend on another project, I felt compelled to dive head first into churning out my own edition of what an hour of talk radio feels like to me, taking full responsibility of the show. Haha. I must be insane...

Varying challenges stemming from sleep loss, finances, overworking, evil instigators—even an impending natural disaster—can't and won't keep us from serving up The Weekly Dish in your Friday morning mix. I never realized just how much work it would be, and without the beliefs of my Maui Weekly family, my brotha Shawn Michael and all my amazing supporters, The Weekly Dish would not exist. It's been an honor waking up with Maui and spreading the community news and creative energies to each and every one of you. I've also gained the utmost respect for other radio personalities with plates much more full than what The Dish can handle. Rock and talk on!

Jump-start your weekend as we serve up hot news and cool community views from the Maui Weekly, along with highlighting some of the island’s great small businesses as well as the local music and arts scene.

Discover the glory of Maui's performing and visual arts world with such segments as "Let's Talk More... " with bon-vi-vant and Maui Weekly writer, Paul Janes-Brown, or cozy up with the mistress of eclectic arts, Ellen Peterson, during our monthly "Pillow Talk" segment.

Gov. Neil Abercrombie has visited our airwaves with colorful interviews, and we spread the love to several nonprofits—including amazing keiki organizations like the Kïhei Youth Center and extraordinary green efforts such as the Community Work Day Program and Surfrider.

The Weekly Dish frequently welcomes well-known members of the community to guest host and join the studio sessions, and there are always great giveaways for our listeners. (We even gave out sweet car stereo speakers from Classic Cruisers' Mike during "Auto Talk" one week.)

Whether sleep-deprived or fully rested, Shawn and I always deliver useful information you can trust through clever commentary and intellectual stimulation in an intriguing and fun-spirited fashion every Aloha Friday morning.

Not sure what to do this weekend? Get in tune with bands and artists in the entertainment scene during "Maui Music Notes," as Mr. Groovy and I keep our fingers on the pulse of the island's unique musical verve. We play original tracks from a diverse selection of local or visiting musicians every week, and you'll frequently hear local musicians decorating the airwaves with us bright, early and live in the studio on Friday mornings.

The Weekly Dish's music media leg of the show has been blessed to welcome a plethora of beloved Hawai‘i artists, including such celebrated homegrown talents such as Paula Fuga, Mike Love, George Kahumoku Jr., Ledward Kaanapa, John Cruz, Amy Hanaiali‘i, Vince Esquire, Eric Gilliom, Kanoa Kukaua—and that's just a few of the long list of creative musical souls that Shawn and I have had the privilege to interview.

We celebrate exciting new collaborations such as MOTH, Owaila, Rabbitt & The Propers, Mary Jane Xperiment, as well as give mad love to popular collectives such as The Vince Esquire Band, The Throwdowns, Kanekoa, The Ha‘ikü Hillbillys, Ekolu, Gomega, Order of the White Rose, Entity Awakened and many more as they continue to keep our ears satisfied and our bodies moving to their melodies.

We're very excited about the future, and we hope you are too. There's much more "stellarness" on the way. Stay tuned....

The Weekly Dish is currently brought to you by the one and only, Maui Weekly, and creative and caring small businesses like 808 Deli, Classic Cruisers, F & H Construction, Stella Blues, Maui Zen Day Spa, Jessica Pearl Photography and Mulligan’s On the Blue. A superb collection of some of the isle's finest entities.

"Enjoy The Weekly Dish—a delightful recipe for Maui's community and entertainment news. Keep it real Maui. Aloha!"
