Singer-songwriters Dave McGraw and Mandy Fer chat with Big Blend Radio hosts Nancy J. Reid & Lisa D. Smith about their new album MARITIME, their national and international tour, living in a cabin on an island in Washington State, kayaking with Orcas, and more. Drawing on the nature around them, McGraw and Fer recorded MARITIME in their cabin on an island nestled between Seattle, WA and Victoria, British Columbia. Instead of leaving to record in a bustling city, McGraw and Fer decided to stay isolated at their seaside home, calling on kindred musicians and their producer to share in the experience.
McGraw and Fer met in Flagstaff, Arizona in 2010 before relocating to the Pacific Northwest in 2012. McGraw spent a decade as a wildlife biologist, studying endangered birds in remote locales from the deserts of Mexico and the Grand Canyon to the mountainous rain forests of Washington. Fer's musical pulse led her to Spain, where she studied music, language and local culture.
This interview originally aired on April 20, 2015 on Big Blend Radio's Nature Connection show, which broadcasted live from Ridgemark Golf & Country Club in Hollister, California.
Kara Ronin returns to chat about how she was able to grow her business, Executive Impressions, through guest posting.
Kara has written guest posts for online media outlets like The Local France, Expatica France, Firepole Marketing, Business Insider India and The Muse (formerly The Daily Muse), which was picked up by Time Inc.
She will explain how she got the opportunity to do guests posts and why anyone can grow their brand through guest posting even if they are a college student or an employee.
Through the portal of Executive Impessions, Kara offers corporate, university, and online training programs focused on her fields of expertise: international business etiquette and executive leadership.
She is also the author of an ebook called "The Ultimate Networking Roadmap: Rise Above Fear To Network With Confidence and Class."
Call it Irish grit. “If you grew up where I grew up,” McGraw recalls, “you were automatically hyphenated either Irish, Polish, or Italian, and your dad worked in the mill, that was a given.” Hailing from a small steel industry town about 50 miles outside of Buffalo, New York, McGraw was raised on Hee-Haw (“We loved Conway Twitty, or at least his haircut”) and rough games of hockey and football. Small for his age and showing little athletic promise, he gravitated towards music, and good thing: “If I’d have stuck with the sports I liked any longer I might have ended up getting my head taken off. We never wore pads, let alone helmets.” Instead, McGraw grew out his hair, picked up a cheap Japanese guitar, and at 13 started a rock band with friends, playing in bars a couple of nights a week—with a note from his mother in hand, in case the cops asked any questions.
As soon as he finished high school, McGraw hightailed it to Los Angeles with rock star dreams and a country sensibility. Wearing out records by Dwight Yoakam and Steve Earle, and “digging through stacks of junk at the Pasadena flea market looking for old Buck Owens and Johnny Cash on vinyl,” he developed his own unique hard-core hillbilly sound.
It’s a crazy life, and McGraw looks upon it with bemused satisfaction in “My So Called Life,” reflecting, “Some days I own this town, other days it shoots me down/Always I’m still hanging round, holdin’ on to hope.” Expertly depicting the driving pace of his “Honky Tonk Life,” McGraw stubbornly continues to hope: “I could quit all this road stuff, go back to my real job, put in a straight 9 to 5/But I love the neon, I love the people, and I love the Honky Tonk Life.”
It's that time of year again.... conference season! Joining us to share what can you expect to see, highlighted trends, and how to get the most out of your conference investment is Kara Mignanelli, who runs Social Recruiting Strategies Conference (or #SRSC on the Twitters).

In this episode of AKANFO NANASOM, we examine the seven karkaru (chakras) and their relationship to the Abosom (Deities) of the Akan 7-day week and also the seven spiritual senses. The Abosom Who animate the solar. lunar and planetery bodies which govern the Akan seven-day week are the same Abosom from ancient Khanit and Kamit (Nubia and Egypt) that we continue to invoke and worship today: Awusi, Adwoa, Bena, Abenaa, Awuku, Akua, Yaw, Yaa, Aaba, Afi and Amen Men (Ausar, Auset, Heru Behdety, Sekhmet, Set, Nebt Het, Heru, Wadjet, Nekhebet, Het Heru and Amen Men). All Akan people are named after one of these Abosom.
The term 'chakra' is a corruption of the term 'karkar' from ancient Kamit. This term predates sanskrit by thousands of years. We examine the karkaru as shrines of Abosom (Deities/Orisa/Vodou) within the spirit-bodies of Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans~Black People).
We examine our book and publication:
ANKH - The Origin of the term 'Yoga' - KARA KASA - The Origin and Nature of the 'Chakra'
