Robert Nevel is president of KAM Isaiah Israel Congregation in Hyde Park, just across the street from President Barack Obama's Chicago home. So it seems natural that during KAMII's 6th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Food Justice and Sustainablity Weekend, one of the seminars addressed the issue of creating the proposed Obama Presidential Library in Chicago in a way that would improve a local neighborhood while embracing its history and its current culture.
Kate Copsey is host of The Master Gardener Hour on America's Web Radio.com. She and Mike have known each other for more than a decade, and she even hired him for his very first garden talk. They discuss gardening in different parts of America--including hardiness zones, soils and other conditions. They even talk about Kate's celiac disease and how she has adapted to it.
Mike once again presents It's a Wonderful Slice of It's a Wonderful Life, this year live in studio. Featured performers are Ron Cowgill, Robbie Earhardt and Rich Cowgill from Mighty House, Scott Duff from Out Chicago, Kellen Kiernan and Rob Kartholl from The Mike Nowak Show, and WCPT staff Dennis Schetter and Kerry D'Auben. It's worth the listen just to catch the readings of Guiseppe Martini (via phone, no less) and Zuzu. Just saying.
Mike talks poinsettia and Christmas tree fact and fiction, courtesy of a couple of websites from Illinois Extension - The Poinsettia Pages and Christmas Trees and More. Megan and Lynn, The Green Divas, promote the new GDGD Radio Network and how to support it. In the second hour, Mike turns the studio over to the WCPT Players and the annual presentation of It's a Wonderful Slice, his 10 minute adaptation of the holiday film classic, It's a Wonderful Life.
