Composer and performance artist Aletha Nowitzky (alias Ma Cappella) has been caught red-handed in a giggle of intriguing venues, not to mention costumes. Her motto, "Be what you want to see!" has goaded Aletha into past shifts of shape such as a mermaid in a fountain, a fairy on a tree stump, an angel in a living nativity, and an animal rejoicing on Saint Francis' Day in the "Church of Harmania", each spouting a strange and wacky wisdom that is unique to their collective creator.
Aletha's latest imaginarrative happens right here at KSKQ with her show, "Tasty Topics and Tantalizing Tunes." This fine show airs every Saturday morning from 10 to 11 a.m. and focuses on health and well being and other fun stuff! It's a collage of uplifting music, light-hearted discussion, poetry, raw food recipes, InnerViews, and other thought-provoking, entertaining inspiration! Aletha invites one and all to become her Dear Listeners, and join her on a heaventriloquest through Saturday morning, as she beams loving sound to everyone on the planet!
What happens when you travel to fifty-seven countries around the world? For one, you see a lot. If you are a photographer, you are likely to photograph what you see. You also hear a lot. And, if you are interested in music, you hear the totally amazing variety of music people around the world play. You learn different rhythms, different harmonies. You became an ethnomusicologist or someone who studies the social and cultural aspects of music and dance in local and global contexts. If you bring all that music home, you start a radio show called Juice Box.
That's exactly what Richard Felker has done. And if KSKQ community radio had the ability to broadcast images, you'd be able to see the photographs too. Alas, our technology hasn't reached that level yet. But the music more than makes up for that.
Tune in every Tuesday at 3 pm to hear tracks from Richard's collection.
