Show Notes - 06/28/2011

Fish, Eggs & Sushi!

Tonight on the BIG show we interviewed Hayashi from the South Asian band, MOOCHIE MAC & THE SUPERFRIENDS and we featured their track, "Fish, Eggs & Sushi". We learned some interesting things about MMSF including great ideas come from drunkenness and they seem to be inspired by trips then write albums about them. It all works in beautiful unison and the end result is nothing short of fantastic. Check out the links below for more Moochie Mac.

Later discussion fell to the G20 Summit and the fact that world food supply could become a problem. True with the weather issues and disasters over the past several years coupled with other issues (politics, governments) we need to find ways to make this work for each of us. Of course we suggested that we start planting our own gardens. What do you think?

Our good friend Vicky Jones sent us a new piece of music, "She's In Love". Another fine track and we just had to play it...

Mat Stein joins us on the show to discuss and refresh points of his quintessential book on disaster preparedness, WHEN TECHNOLOGY FAILS.

Happy Summer Solstice

On the show tonight, we interviewed singer/songwriter Sheri Miller who brings together so many different influences into her music, that her great sound deserves a genre of its own. We featured the title track to her new CD, Winning Hand on the show and we also learned that she keeps lots of songs in a book that she wrote when she was a child. We suggested she make a CD of it all. Check out Sheri's web site below to grab her CD. You will love it! Visit the links below to get your copy:

Later on the show we talked about NBC's omission of "Under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance on the US Open; not once but TWICE. Their only explanation: they did not intend to offend anyone. Also, would you go watch an MTV 2011 version of Footloose? YUK! Check out the story and trailer and then judge for yourself.

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!!!

On the show tonight we dedicated the newly renovated Behind The Mike Studio to Joel's father (Mike "The Moose" Michalec) who lost his battle with cancer in mid-February. There was a toast and the studio is so named, The Moose Den in honor of a great man.

Later on the broadcast, we welcomed back our resident career coach, Kay Stout. Kay spoke about matters relating to summer jobs and how you should be careful not to overlook what a summer job could bring in your future. Also, Kay reminds us that a summer job is better than no job at all. We took a phone call during the hour and Kay lent her expertise to a gentleman who has been out of work for two years and trying to re-invent himself.

Show Notes - 06-14-2011

Tonight on the show , Joel had the night off and we welcomed back guest host Jack Hosley of Wander Radio.

This was a rescheduled guest appearance from Jack because the last time he was supposed to be here a few weeks ago, a major tornado came through the town where he lives and kept him off the air. Tony, our chief engineer and producer last time had to scramble and find something to air on the networks in 30 minutes that time. Keeping our eyes and fingers crossed, we surged ahead. This time, Jack sent Tony a message in the production window saying "Look at this". Yes, you guessed it. It was another weather radar shot.This time however, it stayed far enough away to allow us to finish the show even though Jack did tell me they had softball sized hail reported with the most severe areas of the storm. Wow. Moving on to the guest.....

Jack's guest tonight was book author Gary Jonas. Gary is a writer, a blogger and a screen writer. He started writing in 1990 and he has sold many stories, articles, reviews and even artwork to various anthologies and magazines. His work has been translated into Italian, German and Japanese.His latest work, One Way Ticket to Midnight, is being released in E-Book format and is available from Yard Dog Press at the link below.

It was a fun and informative discussion and there are some tips for prospective writers out there from Gary as well. Check out the podcast.

Show Notes - 06/12/2011

Tonight on the show we welcomed author Michael Schwartz. Michael has joined us on the show numerous times discussing naturopathic healing and teachings but this time he brings about a new book, Dream Symbology Dictionary. This fascinating read looks at hundreds of keywords listed alphabetically that you might encounter in your dreams and an interpretation as to what they might mean. Michael puts it best that everyone should have a copy so they can begin to understand the symbols and begin to understand what their mind is trying to say to them. Grab a copy of the book below at Inner Health Books.

Other stories of note on the show included the state attorney in Illinois who is prosecuting people who record bad cops instead of the bad cops. Plus we gave mention to the man on video who was put down with a taser for not resisting arrest. It sound like it gets worse and worse doesn't it folks?

Stink Bugs - YUCK!!

Julian Smith, inventor of the Stink Bug trap featured below, joined us on the show to talk about his $7 solution to the ever growing stink bug issue. He figured this design by watching how these critters interacted with light and how they trap themselves to the death. So he got some tape, a soda bottle and a light and began to create. You can do it yourself! Watch the video and check it out!!

Behind The Mike Presents...
Our 300th Episode!!

Yep, we are celebrating our 300th show on Behind The Mike and we are happy to continue serving our listener audience.

First on the show tonight was the lovely actress Dee Wallace. Dee has starred in more than 130 films, 400 television commercials as well as four television series. Her second appearance on the show is to highlight her new book, Bright Light. You can get her book through her website, Amazon.com and outlets everywhere.

Later on the show, we talked out our recent appearance at the Middletown, Delaware Relay For Life on June 3, 2011. It was a very emotional event and we captured some great interviews from participants, volunteers and survivors. It was also a very heart-warming evening to meet so many people who have come together to fight a common cause; cancer. We showcased the interviews and celebrated life on the program.
