The archive was down for a bit, so it will take some time to get shows 4-12 from the station. They are however, coming soon. In the meantime, enjoy the first 3 shows in our fabulous Podcast player by clicking on the link above.
Show 23 aired February 5, 2013 with another no show from Chris White. We did talk about his film in his abscence so if you’re curious about Sweet and Awful, you will still hear about it in the podcast. I will even give you some details below. We also talked with Joey Rassool, a fan film maker who is now working on a documentary about the tribute art. Finally, voice from The Syndicate, calls in to talk about voiceovers and her role in that series.
The project, Sweet and Awful, was successfully funded, but I’m unsure it’s status as I can’t find anything other than the Kickstarter page about it. Perhaps Chris White will see this post and give us a little update in the comments?

Finally, you may remember from last weeks show, our guest Ryan S Fix called in about his new animated series, The Syndicate. From that show, voice talent, Leisa Jo Waller called in to talk about her acting/singing/voice acting history and a bit about working on this series.
We wish them both luck with this project.

Show 22 aired on January 29, 2013 with San Francisco bottle cap artist, Leigh Ellison in studio. We had our Random Topics segment in the middle of the show which extended quite a bit as our caller was very late on his call in. That would be filmmaker, Chris White. Here’s the scoop:
Artist Leigh Ellison makes some insanely awesome creations from bottle caps. You can wear her art, as you see in this photo, but you can also visit her larger mosaic pieces at various locations in San Francisco.
Unfortunately, Chris White who was supposed to call in about Sweet and Awful call too late in the show and we barely got a conversation with him. You can look into all of his films at these websites, and hopefully we’ll get him booked on the show again: Paris Mtn Scout, Facebook, and Kickstarter.
The exciting show! Bill Plympton told me he’d thank me at the Oscars. Don’t take my word for it. Listen to the podcast. We started with Dmitra Smith of Static People about music and upcoming shows. Bill Plympton called in to discuss his animated film, Cheatin’. Finally, Ryan S Fix called in to talk about his animated series, The Syndicate.
The amazing animator, Bill Plymton called us to discuss his new feature length animated film, Cheatin’. It was definitely a show highlight for me.
You can watch his production blog at his Kickstarter page. The project was successfully funded and the film should be finished sometime this summer. Follow his many projects at his website and he does have a page on Facebook.

The Syndicate will star some big voices including Marisa Tomei.
We had a lot of Random Topics for Show 20 which aired on January 15, 2013. We do so love doing this segment. In the middle of the show, author/artist Christy C Road called in about her most recent book, Spit & Passion. We closed the show with some more randomness and a phone in from 6th Street Playhouse about their current production of Smokey Joes Cafe.
It is an autobiographical piece based on her formative years and her “new found queer identity”.
On the press page of her website, you can check out some video interviews. Find her on Facebook.
Alise Gerard, stage director of Smokey Joes Cafe called in to discuss the show playing at the 6th Street Playhouse.
Our awesome 19th show aired on January 8, 2013. We had guests: actress Nicole Dionne on all of her current projects, best band ever: The Skivvies!, and Gary Sapperstein stopped in to discuss local event, Martini Madness.
Actress Nicole Dionne
I first met her when she was here for Sonoma International Film Festival’s 2010 festival with a film she was in, Leading Ladies. We had so much fun that weekend that when this radio show came about, I told her to let me know whenever she had something fun she wanted to discuss on the radio.
This call we talked about her current film, LA Willy Nilly, and projects past, present and future.
Stripped down performers, Lauren Molina and Nick Cearly of the Skivvies,called in to discuss their music and new single. Hardbody Hoedown can be heard by clicking or downloading this mp3. Hardbody Hoedown
The music is included in the podcast of the show as The Skivvies gave permission to share it. Enjoy!
Finally, local favorite, Gary Sapperstein stopped in to talk about the annual event, Martini Madness. It happens every year as a part of the Olive Festival celebrating the season of the olive. Check out Gary’s show every Thursday night at 8 pm on KSVY. Out in the Vineyard celebrates the local LGBT news and happenings with hosts Gary Sapperstein and Mark Vogler. If you can believe it, I manage to stay quiet the entire show, helping them run the sound board!
To celebrate the first show of 2013, we had local Anne Peterson sit in with us and discuss random entertainment topics for the hour. We consider her our biggest fan! Show 18 aired on January 1, 2013. One way to support her? Catch a Vox Populi show here in Sonoma!
She also has a singing trio performing around town, Dollhouse, and is very active in the Sonoma Theatre scene working a lot with the Silver Moon Theatre Company.

Whenever in Sonoma, and whenever possible, please pay a visit to Steiners Tavern and El Verano Inn. Mention that you heard our show! Thank you Paul Spadaro and Leslie Danon for your continued support!!

Show 17 aired on December 18, 2012. Jason Ghiselin sat in with me as Melissa was out of town. Our good friend Tiffany Hill sat in with us to have a Christmas Music Showdown with Jason. I, Cat Smith was the judge and declared Tiffany the winner. As it was a music show, however, we can not do a podcast of it. Also, the next week was Christmas so all shows at the station got to take a holiday. Merry Christmas or happy holidays, anything you celebrate, may it be bright!
The next podcast will be Show 18 welcoming in the new year, 2013!
