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.
On August 19, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced that it will accept input from stakeholders to determine a possible rulemaking for entry-level truck driver training. After years of failing to implement a final rule which would establish such criteria, the FMCSA is considering using a negotiated rulemaking, known as RegNeg.
Under RegNeg, outside agency representatives would consult among each other in order to develop the proposed rule, taking the responsibility away from the FMCSA. In Canada, a task force is working toward establishing criteria for entry-level drivers, as well as hoping to have the Canadian government classify truck driving as a "skilled" profession.
Furthermore, the Canadian Trucking Alliance has admitted that the primary causes for a driver shortage are driver wages, quality of life, qualifications and demographics.
Join us as we look at the very different approach by the U.S. and Canada as it relates to driver training and recognizing the importance of the professional driver. Just one topic for our "Open Forum."

Our special guest, Kirk Kostoff draws from twenty years of combined skills in the B2B sales marketing and strategic business development arena, drawing from his experiences in the Fortune 500 market.
In 2011 Mr. Kostoff entered the logistics side of business through his introduction and interaction with CR England and what he refers to as their "self proclaimed" legitimate franchise. His recent actions with the ongoing CR England class action litigation associated with driver's rights, legitimate wages and living conditions has positioned him as an upcoming "voice of reason" and concern for the small business owner, just recently founding The Drivers Association of America.
Through extensive OTR experience and close contact with established strategic alliances, our guest will be discussing "The Power of Driver Credentials, The Driver Shortage Myth and Remedies through Education and Implementation."
We invite everyone to consider these topics and call in with their perspectives as we will also discuss the CR England case as it is public knowledge and to reiterate for all the industry newcomers about the motor carrier leasing scams to once again explain how it all works against the professional truck driver.
