Minnie Driver joins host Robin Milling to talk about her new film, Hunky Dory. Minnie shows off her musical talents, dueting with the students and playing guitar as a drama teacher in Wales who is keen to put together a rock musical of Shakespeare's The Tempest that would make David Bowie proud. Set in the 70s her students perform hit songs from the era, namely Life on Mars? which Minnie says is perfect timing with Bowie's comeback, The Next Day. Minnie says she can't stop listening to the CD especially when Bowie so graciously lent his music to the film for a song.
Minnie tells Robin about her involvement with musical educational programs and the importance of music and the arts in schools. Her five year-old son Henry is already showing a penchant for music taking piano lessons. He was on the set of Hunky Dory getting into the jamming sessions. Minnie says it's been in his genes since before he was born getting an earful of her guitar playing while on tour seven months pregnant.
This is the year of the musical for Minnie who will also be starring opposite Meatloaf in the horror musical Stage Fright. She is also releasing a CD of cover tunes in June Ask Me To Dance to follow up her original CD Seastories in 2007.

Join us with our guest and co-host, Tom Kyrk of Road Tested Living as we discuss the hottest topics on AskTheTrucker “Live’ Truck Driver Health Open Forum.
Professional drivers are more aware of the dangers of their compromised food supply, the increase in illnesses such as diagnosed diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and increased autoimmune disease.
Because of awareness, truckers are now more concerned and actively involved by taking proactive measures to improve their health.
You know who else has announced they are going to become proactively involved with driver health? The FMCSA. On September 21st and 22nd FMCSA's Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Council ( MCSAC) and the Medical Review Board (MRB) opened up discussion regarding the Health and Wellness of the professional Driver.
Tonight we will discuss this newly announced involved by the FMCSA and determine if becoming involved with truck driver health and wellness is for the earnest regard of the professional driver? Or.... is it to become just one more way the government will become even more involved with driver lives.
We’ll also be discussing , unsafe cookware to avoid in your truck, what kind of diet programs to stay away from, and the new craze on “salts” is there any really any differences?
Be a part of the show tonight. Call in number is 347-826-9170
The loss of independence is what Sandra Williams misses most since her brain injury. She misses running and having energy to do all the things she wants to do. The biggest tip Sandra can offer other survivors is "Don't listen to negative comments or even employers that tell you you can't do the job. Listen to your heart, your soul and fight for yourself and others. It will keep you going." Sandra will talk about what keeps her going on "Another Fork in the Road." Please Tune In!
Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College plans, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slip from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating. But as Yogi Berra once said, "If you come to a fork in the road, take it." Life is all about choices!

My guest is my dear and long time friend, Diane Wilson Onwuchekwa, a woman who has been broken literally, with over 78 broken/fractured bones in her body, including her neck which was being held together physically only by ligaments, tendons, and muscle instead of cervical vertebrae because those bones were broken and shattered from the direct impact of an SUV that ran head on into a Chrysler Spitfire two seat vehicle that only seats two, the driver and the passenger!

Trucking Open Forum - Special Alert to discuss Transportation Bill Amendment
Special Show Alert Tuesday 11/17/15
6PM ET Call in 347-826-9170
The House Transportation bill has an amendment, which, if approved in the final version of the House and Senate Transportation bill, could be damaging regarding wages of professional drivers. It's called the Denham Amendment 114-21.
Last week the Truth About Trucking network set out an all out campaign to bring awareness to this harmful amendment.
Listen to Saturdays Denham Amendment segment on AskTheTrucker "Live' here
We have been joined by many, including TruckersUnited.org, the Professional Truckers Association Group, and thousands of drivers throughout the country. But still many are confused as to what the repercussions affecting drivers will be.
Today, OOIDA announced their strong opposition to the Denham Amendment sending a call to action to their members, claiming it would unravel mandated fair-pay for drivers and would empower large carriers to further reduce driver wages. THey also said that It would also gut the ability for states to address critical items like payment for detention time, safety training and medical examinations or other costs associated with licensing procedures.
Tonight we have an additional to our regularly scheduled show to discuss the Denham Amendment and further explain what it would mean to professional drivers if added to the final version of the Transportation bill.
In this edition of All Subjects Everything, we'll put a bow on week 11 in the NFL, which ended with - surprise - another New England Patriots win. We'll talk about who looks to be in the driver's seat in their respective divisions and what's going to happen in the divisions that have yet to be decided.
Also, we'll share some thoughts on Monday Night RAW the night after Survivor Series and much more.
