That's Life

Live Thursday 1-2pm
Replays Sunday 2-3pm


Sometimes interviews with local folks. It might be about work, or life choices, or philosophy, or history. Sometimes birding, or art, or other passions. Or about local activities, groups, or events.  It's rarely about politics, and it never includes shouting! When there's no guest, it's laid-back music.  Oldies or Hawaiian or Mom's 1940s songs--whatever feels right that day.

If you have a suggestion for a guest or topic, feel free to phone me at 758-5058 (8am-8pm).
