Join us this week as we welcome Garage Rock-Country, Americana, Singer-Songwriter and Actress, Ariana Hodes. For most hopeful young actresses, it’s a long, hard stretch of highway between Concord, New Hampshire and Beverly Hills, but Ariana Hodes made the journey seem easy. Born into a musical family, performing has always been in her blood. She was always around show business and started performing in community theater plays and musicals when she was around 13. It wasn’t long before Hollywood started taking notice and this dark haired beauty began to rack up an impressive list of stage and screen credits, but Ariana wanted more. In early 2014, she decided it was time to spread her wings and return to her musical roots. With mentoring and guidance from old family friend, Mike Borchetta, and his wife, Martha, Ariana entered a recording studio. Her first single, a soulful, bouncy cover of Melanie’s seventies mega hit “Brand New Key”. Ariana recently released her new EP "Last Night's Makeup" and is available at digital outlets now. In a nutshell, she’s a multi-talented singer/songwriter/dancer with Shakespearean theater training who plays guitar, piano, loves animals, sports and the Beatles. In other words, Ariana Hodes is a force to be reckoned with. We will talk to Ariana Hodes about her upcoming schedule, get a behind their scenes look at her music, feature her latest songs, and ask her to share her message for the troops. Please be sure to visit Ariana Hodes at http://www.arianahodes.com/ and spread the word. Fans are welcome to call in and speak live with her during the show (718) 766-4193. As always we will give shout outs to our deployed military listeners. Be sure to join us, 7/24/2016 at 4 PM EDT! Our message to the troops: WE do what we do, because YOU do what you do.
