Jill’s career is firmly founded on that deep abiding current of empathy and excitement between her and the audience, the warmth and generosity that flows both ways during a show. Her genre-blending style of folk, rock, country, Americana and just plain good songwriting reaches out and connects wherever she goes. Jill has also worked with the burgeoning Michigan film scene both as an actor and as a soundtrack contributor.

I remember that first day at the transmitter atop the Liberal Arts Building at HFCC when we flipped the switch on: just as snowy and cold as today--but we could feel the excitement beginning. Thanks to all our loyal listeners and community supporters along the way!

Mike's next guest on "Metaphysically Speaking" is Spirit Artist, Kim Bailey. Kim is a visually and spiritually gifted artist who paints the essence of the energy that she senses around a persons body and soul. Through a meditation process, she connects with her spirit guides and they lead her to draw an abstract image that represents your spirit. Kim will intuitively draw and design something she "feels", using a variety of colors, which helps to convey messages that she receives about someone.
"Spirits Rejoice" remembers and celebrates the great Frank Zappa! Tune in 6-10pm, Tuesday, December 21st
A note from host Pat Frisco, "Tis the Tuesday before Christmas and I stare at the same old music for the holidays. I think that I have an idea for a better Christmas present. The master-mind that we knew as Frank Zappa was born on this date, December 21, 1940. He would have been 70 and I'm certain that he would still be delighting, confusing, and amazing us if we were still with us today. Let's celebrate Christmas and Zappa's birthday with four hours of his music, Tuesday December 21 on the Spirits Rejoice program from 6-10pm.
Please join us for a live performance with Owen B and his electric violin with the all mighty Muruga on drums! This Thursday, December 16th, 5-6pm on Motor Live Drive @ 5!
