Great Show!

What fun we had this morning on Tillicum Wawa! Lively discussion and music, chanting and ukelele playing...

Truly, there was a mixture of people! We had a man in his 20's and one almost 80. I loved that a strong native woman led the show with her son sitting in, playing ukelele before he heads off to adventure on the Islands.

John Talley honored us with a rare appearance at the station and told a couple of great stories.

We had a chance to talk with our friends, Iokepa, Hawiian spirtiual leader of the Return Voyage and his wife, Inette a gifted writer and journalist.

They were wonderful to have on the show sharing their thoughts on sacred sites, and other topics as well as excerpts from Inette's new book of memoirs,"Grandmothers Whisper".

Emily totally rocked at engineering the show, so adaptable and professional!

I hope everyone listening enjoyed it as much as I did co-hosting it with you and Shusli!
