That's Life

calling card for That's Life program on KDRT

Host Lois Richter’s That’s Life new format is strictly interviews. Recurring topics include Davis activities and groups; work and life choices; philosophy and theory; and birding, cooking, art, and other passions. Lois occasionally breaks into music -- from ballads to the slack key sounds of Hawaii -- but mostly we just talk.

If you want to suggestion a topic for discussion or a person to interview, send a text to Lois at 530-902-0209 or leave a message in the comments here.

Mar 30th, a day of jazz and rambling...

A day of jazz and general rambling...

“I’m Gonna Go Fishin’” by Duke Ellington

“What Can I Say?” by Peggy Lee

Giuffrey and Jim Hall

The Davis Wiki (one the first local Wikis anywhere) is maintained entirely by users and hosts tons of information about Davis. You can check it out at www.daviswiki.org. All kinds of events and local happenings are captured here and an archive is built in the process. Lois talks about all kinds of interesting tidbits one can find on the site. It is a great resource for locals and visitors alike.

MaryLou Anderson aka M.L. Edson ...

On this episode of "That’s Life" hosted by Lois Richter, we meet MaryLou Anderson, a local artist and writer with whom Lois became acquainted at the Davis Art Center. They met while Lois was admiring MaryLou’s glasswork and got to talking; and here they continue their conversation with us on KDRT.  Lois and MaryLou cover a lot of ground — from MaryLou’s pen name (M.L. Edson) to the chemical properties of dichroic glass — there is a lot to learn.

Mike Pesola and Lois on "Ministry"

Mike Pesola, former KDRT host and owner of Bedrock Construction, is also a religious man.  

Upon occasion, his church has called him to minster to the congregation by preaching a sermon. On today's show, Lois and Mike discuss what 'ministry' means to each of them and how they prepare to speak.  Although their styles of speaking are different (one planned ahead, the other inspired in the moment) and their organiizations (Baptist church and Quaker meeting) have different structures; both agree that sharing one's inspiration with others is both important and challenging.  

Mike observed that the very best form of ministry is LIVING YOUR LIFE in the manner you feel you should. Lois agrees that actions often speak louder than words.

How do you express your spirituality? What form does your 'ministry' take?
