Broadway star Kate Baldwin joins host Robin Milling for Let's Do Lunch! at Village Prime in New York City. On stage at 59 E. 59, Kate gets her honky tonk on as Tammy Trip, a former Nashville Grand Ole Opry queen in Songbird; music and lyrics by Lauren Pritchard. She tells Robin she has never been to Music City but studied Robert Atlman's film 'Nashville' to prepare for the role and read up on famous female country artists like Wynona Judd and being a woman in the world of country music. She reveals her ultimate inspiration for the character looking sinewy and fit was inspired by a pop star. Her country twang came from listening to a playlist of several country singers, and one in particular became her model.
At Village Prime, the fresh baked bread on the table was tempting, but Kate abstained as she is keeping her strict carb-free diet that she began with her husband; fellow actor, Graham Rowat, who also got in shape to play a gladiator in A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum. A foodie herself, she jokes that they may look great but they're 'exhausted and starving!' She tells Robin how they met during a run of 1776 at the Fords Theater in Washington, D.C. playing Richard Henry Lee and Martha Jefferson. Kate says their four and a half year-old son Colin is an equalizer between career and motherhood.
Kate tells Robin her Broadway debut was as a swing in The Full Monty, and then as a dancer in the ensemble of Thoroughly Modern Millie. Learning the line dance in Songbird was plenty for Kate who jokes that she is a 'recovering dancer.'
The menu at Village Prime consisted of Pumpkin Bisque soup, Roasted Salmon with Hudson Valley spaghetti squash and artichoke puree, Vegetable Flatbread with grilled seasonal veggies and mozzarella cheese, and Tuna Nicoise with bonito tuna, hard-boiled egg, haricot vert, potato over mixed greens.

Tonight’s Diabetes Late Nite is inspired by the iconic musical group, The Isley Brothers.
Marvin Isley was the youngest member and bass guitarist of the Isley Brothers. Marvin remained a member until complications from his longtime battle with diabetes forced him into retirement in 1997. Having been diagnosed with diabetes in his early 20s, Isley's condition worsened to the point where he had to have both legs amputated.
A diabetes diagnosis can be scary, but ignoring it won’t make it go away. Learning to accept your diabetes takes time, energy and attitude. But once you learn how to accept your diabetes you can start to manage it and live better. The transition from denial to acceptance and all the stages in between varies for everyone.
Tonight Mr. Divabetic explores the process of ‘ACCEPTANCE’ with Dr. Beverly S. Adler PhD, CDE in the final installment of our series on the emotional side of living with diabetes. Additionally, ‘New York Times bestselling co-author, and former Senior Writer for People Magazine Mark Dagostino talks about his latest book ‘Ellie & Coach,' Professional Animal Trainer, Debby Kay, who specializes in scent detection work with dogs talks about the power of the human-animal connection along with Terri Seidman and Mama Rose Marie.
Throughout the podcast we will be playing selected songs from The Isley Brothers: The RCA Victor and T-Neck Album Masters (1959-1983), a monumental 23-disc box set collection chronicling the sonic evolution and abiding achievements of the unprecedented R&B ensemble courtesy of SONY MUSIC. This box set follows The Isley Brothers through their transformation from a 1950's doo-wop/gospel vocal group into the world's preeminent R&B rock 'n' soul powerhouse party band.
Goodness only knows that you've heard Jere B on "Hybrid Jazz!" One of our favorite people on the planet, B is returning to crow just a LITTLE about his group's new CD. Okay, maybe he'll boast a LOT - he sure deserves to be singing the praises of SounDoctrine's latest, called "Source." If you know anything about this fabulous band, based in Youngstown, Ohio, you already have perceived that the Source that gets recognition here is God - who is the SOURCE for ALL :)
We've watched SounDoctrine's growth and success through the years - back when they appeared at the "Gospel Music Connection" in 2002. That was in Northeast Ohio - and the word has spread all over the world by now. The original, alternative, Funk Jazz Fusion ensemble known as SounDoctrine has truly captured fans' hearts around the globe! You might have loved them when you first heard the debut project, called "Perseverance." Or you may know "SD Live" - or "Endurance." That album featured "Small Mouthed Bass" - which was latere re-mixed by contemporary Jazz great, Bob Baldwin. "Inspire" followed - and built on the group's word-of-mouth momentum.
By this time, a whole lot of industry folks were taking notice. Kirk Whalum, Pieces of a Dream, Spyro Gyra, Freddy Jackson - SounDoctrine opened for all of them! The Hollywood Black Film Festival loved their music - so did the Weather Channel. The excitement is building in every direction where their fans live NOW - because a new release is HERE - and "Source" will confirm what all of us have been saying for YEARS. That SounDoctrine is one of the most creative musical units on the planet. Fun, fearless, full of feeling! Join us in The Chat Room on 11/5 - it will feel like a reunion. Because it WILL be :-D

Luenell is a force of nature. This talented comedienne, actress and singer, was born in Tollette, Arkansas, a town whose population barely registers with the U.S. census. At the tender age of 10, she caught the acting bug after seeing the plays South Pacific and Ain’t S’posed to Die a Natural Death. She enrolled in theatre classes at the grade school level and continued to study through college and cut her teeth at the Oakland Ensemble Theatre. More info at http://www.heyluenell.com

This is a return visit from the beautifully talented Fred Hughes - and the reason for our get-together now will make you smile (hopefully!) Fred's "Love Letters" project has done really well - but NOW? It's time for an early peek at the holiday season - with Fred's soon-to-be-released "I'll Be Home for Christmas!" Yes, you heard me :) We'll be enjoying some tunes with maybe a hot toddy in The Chat Room. Hah!
The background that Fred has is deeply impressive. A pianist for decades, he showed strong promise as both a keyboard master and a conductor - in his 20's. In his Pennsylvania circles, he was known as an artist to watch. Involved in both the First Army Band in Maryland and the Eighth Army Band in Seoul, Korea, that reputation became etched in stone. In 1981, Fred formed a Jazz group called "Just Friends" - playing to sold-out houses throughout the Korean peninsula. At the same time, he served with the MBC Pops Orchestra in Seoul.
Returning to Lancaster, PA, the early roots of his trio were formed - then he joined the U.S. Army's touring ensemble, The Jazz Ambassadors. He was able to travel to all fifty states - and overseas, too. Amazing opportunities have found their way to Fred through the years! He has performed with orchestras and symphonies all over the globe; he has worked with Arturo Sandoval, Roy Hargrove, Toots Thielemans, and has been music director for Three Mo' Tenors.
Fred has found the time to become an author, educator, and those conducting skills never got rusty! "I'll Be Home For Christmas" is his 7th release - and he shares the joy of the upcoming season with Bassist Amy Shook and Drummer Frank Russo. These three have been playing together for a while - and their chemistry is delightful. You'll FEEL it!
