Host Robin Milling introduces singer/songwriter Maesa Pullman. Maesa started playing piano and writing songs when she was seven. She grew up in an artistic family whose roots go back to her grandfather who also played piano and sang. Her dad is an actor who's family sang folk songs, her mom is a dancer, and her brothers both play music. In fact her brother Louis plays drums with Maesa's band so when things get going in the Pullman household, she describes it as a 'soul jive.' On occasion her older brother Jack who plays banjo joins the family band, which Maesa cleverly christened, The Pull.
On her own Maesa's music is haunting with reflective lyrics; a poetic combination of folk, rock and soul steeped in Americana roots. When listening to some of her songs you can just imagine a horse and rider drifting on the plains. She's an old soul singing about the mysteries of life but her youthfulness shines through some of the darker themes.
Maesa performs her songs The Fall, Bells co-written with her cousin Rosa, and Nobody Can Tell joined by Jason Hiller on bass. The Fall has a music video in the works so stay tuned.
You can get Maesa's music @ www.maesa.bandcamp.com

Bill Pullman joins host Robin Milling celebrating the 5th Anniversary show of Let's Do Lunch! at Urbo in the heart of Times Square. Just a couple of blocks west, Bill is starring in The New Group's Sticks and Bones at The Pershing Square Signature Center Theater. The play by David Rabe focuses on the devastating toll war can take on a family, and how they deal with their son returning home from the war.
Bill tells Robin of his affinity to the military and the intensity of the play, sharing a dressing room with co-star Richard Chamberlain, and his affection for the rest of the cast featuring Holly Hunter, Ben Schnetzer, Raviv Ullman, Nadia Gan and Morocco Omari.
The conversation with Bill is always delightful, as we discussed everything from his musical family, his adventures in Norway as he's on his way to star in Othello, with his friend and director Stein Winge, his next bow on Broadway, and of course the sequel to Independence Day.
Lunch at Urbo (named for Urban Bohemian), a two-story restaurant featuring an eclectic menu and warm dining with open kitchens was a delicious Chef's Sushi Platter, Autumn Vegetable Bisque and Goat Cheese Ravioli. Urbo not only offers delicious cuisine, but is a great space for events, featuring live music upstairs. Visit http://urbonyc.com

Richmond,CA Natives and cousins,Tamisha Torres and Gonzalo Rucobo will discuss the current crisis and events going on in the city..When you envision a place like Richmond,CA Most folk envision blight,death,damnation and despair.From 2004-2014.During this time the city experienced a bloody war entitled a"Confused War" 428 deaths betweenwarring factions throughout the city's confine that left several 1000s of residents wounded.Most folk blame this carnage on a car accident(circa 1989) while many others blame it on self hatred,Neither the case this destruction has separated many families,love ones,and friends.I have yet to meet anyone who has a last name,North,Central,South,Parchester,Pullman,Nevin,,Cresent,Manor,Easterhill,Pennsylvania,Gertrude,Dubioce or York.It's very hard to imagine killing anyone over a territory or block that nobody has become the heir to.Last year the city experienced it's lowest death rate in 33 years with 16 murders.Some credit the works of the Community service providers,While others say it's the work of the systemic order in terms of tougher gun laws and sentencing.That within itself still has Richmond(number 7) on the top 10 list as the most deadliest city in the Nation.What happens when young boys never cry?What happens with all that pent up aggressiveness?
We've decided to look at the lighter side of life, and delve into the world of "Romantic Comedies". Listen as the Movie Maven Karen Dee, Must See Movies Larry Domkowski, and The Reel Movie Guy, Greg Morgan, take a closer look at this delightful genre in film. Three films, three critics (...and maybe a guest or two).
This is the second segment segments that I did Saturday Oct 25 2014 at the Museum
My tour Guide was Norman M. Buchanan one of the Docents who led me about and answered all my silly questions. WE prerecorded this show but soon realized that my voice recorder kept getting turned off has I was walking around so I decided to present the show in segments and hopefully add some commentary before each segment and then let the recording speak for itself
I must admit Mr. Buchanan is a much better tour guide then I am a note taker and or photographer so if some of my pictures do not fit this segment then it is my fault, but much better pictures are on the museum's website. Some of the pictures on this show are mine, the really good ones belong to the Museum
In this segment We covered the Steam crew with either Jeff and or Bill, then on to the US Mail Car, Then onto to the Pullman car, (with a Plug for the Amtrak Texas Eagle), The “Water for Elephants” Stock car
One of my favorite side stories is the Business Car and deals that went on it.
The working Steam Engine that never retired, US Naval Weapons station Seal Beach California Box cars, I can never get that far away from US Navy Haze Gray
Grizzly Flats and Ward Kimball who was one of Walt Disney’s 9 old men who started Disneyland
Chloe the engine and the sugar cane train story
THANK YOU Mr. Buchanan and the entire staff at the Orange Empire Railway Museum in Perris CA.
We begin this week's episode not coming off the high of upsetting a red hot Arizona Wildcats, but pointing the fingers at anything tangible in the wake of a 59-37 beatdown on Dad's weekend in Pullman. This wasn't how the season was supposed to play out most Cougar fans would say, but one where the program would take the next step after gaining bowl eligiblity. Unfortunately it has played out this way, and now coaches seats are red hot, and the program is under a microscope. But is this a coaching issue or a talent issue? Mike Leach is being paid $2.7mm a year to win games. You can excuse his 3-9 rookie campaign for being in a position with lesser talent, but now Coach Leach's record is 8-12 since. His offense has been fantastic, but his defense and special teams is one of the worst in the nation. We'll ask whether sccountability is in need, or is this a matter of inexperience rearing it's ugly head?
We'll also recap last week's debacle, and get you set up for this Saturday's matchup in Pullman vs the USC Trojans at 1:30pm on the Pac-12 Network.
Phone lines are open tonight for all your questions and comments at (714) 816-4704, or you can hit me up on Twitter @InsiderSteve.
Good Evening, and welcome to the first ever episode on Live the Day; A washington State Cougar Podcast. It's Dad's weekend in Pullman, and on tonight's episode we'll dive right into this week's action as the Washington State Cougars will play host to the Arizona Wildacats.
The Cougars come into this game with a multitude of questions that need to be answered. As we've seen thus far in the season, the Cougs are far from playing as a complete team. The Wildcats come into the game as one of the hottest teams in the Pac-12 averaging 574 total yards per game, only second to the Cougars. How will the Cougs contain Ano Solomon, and the Hig powered Arizona offense? We'll let you know.
Phone lines are wide open tonight, and you can also hit Steve up on Twitter @InsiderSteve. We'll See you at 7pm on Live the Day! #WavetheFlag #GoCougs
