Fullshow - This week the weather has been pretty dry. The Rio ran a bit and there are hints of budding here and there, but overall the skies aren't bringing us anything special in the near future. BUT our spirits are up and this false Spring has everybody out doing all those things is was just too cold or slushy to get at all winter. Businesses are busy and the traffic thinks its Summertime. Something to cheer about with this economic malaise that creeps ever so slowly up to the window ledge in all of us.

News - We collected 7 segues from today's show: One Tyrus offers Joni his impersoation of a radio announcer intro for todays introduction. Because, he explains, the announcemment is North Country Health Care has stepped up to help Underwrite our show.

Two Joni gives us the lowdon on the LOU (Learning Opportunities Unlimited) Corporation art show coming up over at Brandy's on March 2nd.

Everybody who has citrus trees is living large this time of year. Seven Tyrus and Joni comment on Mitzy Bellini's uncanny ability to ferret out the very best of free things to do in and around Flagstaff. Eight Tyrus tells us that he likes to watch people slipping down a hill on frozen water tumble now and then. Always good for a chuckle. Nine Adieu~

Heather Ainardi -, yes iot has been a while since we saw her last, from the the Flagstaff Visitors Center takes us Echo Canyon Gallery this week. And, really folke, if you haven't taken the time yet to stop in you may want to ink it in for your FIRST FRIDAY ARTWALK on the 6th. There are some mighty fine things happenging here. Hey Heather, don't be such a stranger!

Kimberly Ott - She's back! This week Kimberly tells us about the ability of folks who can't get out, or would just rather stay at home, to watch all the City Council going on...VIA THE INTERNET! Beginning the first meeting in March you will be able to watch live. Too, from this point forward all the Council Meetings will be archived online. Hmmm ~I guess there won't be any more excuses for being out of the loop...For more information you may want to visit the City Website.

AZDailySun - Editor Randy Wilson hosts our first AZ Daily Sun segment: Reporter Betsy Bruner joins Randy in their conference room and tells us about a standing room only presentation Sherman Alexi gave us here last week. Seems he rocked the house. Joe Ferguson tells us about a young filmmaker, Travis Hamilton, who maxes out his credit cards to make the sort of films he wants to see. Hillary Davis lets us in on a story she has been working on about the Flagstaff Family Resource Center.

Hottie & The Fatso - Are Back! After a month in the Bahamas, and a week touring Napa Valley, Hottie and the Fatso are back. The culinarily inclined duo take us to a new venue out on the Eastside up Arrowhead.

Tony Norris - This week Tony takes us on a cultural excursion. He brings a 1925 "country blues brag"by Papa Charlie Jackson called "The Cats Got The Measles And The Dog's Got The Whopping Cough" . He really delives from the fogs of our collective and obtuse musical memory of our American heritage on this one. For more of Tony, his performance schedule, visit his website.

Mitzy Bellini - Once again does not fail to deliver on all the great happenings going on around town. Yeah Mitzy!!!. This week she really outdoes herself in that NODAK way that soothes the heavily wintered...You can always e-mail her with activities you would like posted at mitzybellini@gmail.com
