Kathy Valentine of the Go Gos, Emily Wagner of Motherhoodlum and Tish Ciravolo of Daisy Rock!

Wow! The past few weeks have been really crazy busy, but all good, with lots of great pre-recorded interviews and people contacting me after hearing my live show at KUCI on Thursday's 10am-12:00pm and now this site, What really makes me smile are the e-mails and CDs that fill my mailbox week after week. And I just finished speaking with some incredible women that will be included in the shows produced over the next few weeks.

First, Tish Ciravolo, Founder and Owner of Daisy Rock Guitars. What an amazing story she has to tell about starting Daisy Rock with inspiration from her daughter and her own strong musical background, and how the company has grown making a huge impact on girls and women around the globe. Plus the month of October, Daisy Rock is donating a portion of the proceeds of sales from the Daisy Rock Online store to Breast Cancer Research. You can learn more by plugging in at!

Then, Emily Wagner, writer, producer, actress (have you seen her in ER over the past 12+ years - too cool!) and Mom, who created an incredibly funny and well crafted comedy about the rollercoaster ride of motherhood -- check out

And just this week, I spoke with Kathy Valentine of the Go Gos (music with GREAT memories for me!) talking about her roots in music, life as a Go Go and now solo artist with her newest CD -- Light Years. Another great artist you will hear on my show each week!

These interviews and more coming soon to stayed tuned!

It is NEVER too late to ROCK! ...or at least try!

I have an electric guitar my Dad bought for me at 14 and I still love it. It holds such memories for me. I got my first guitar at 10, which I lost in a house fire. It was the cutest little Yamaha, but then at 12 I went to Manhattan (all by myself on a train with cash) and bought myself another one to replace it. (Can't imagine ever letting my daughter do that by the way!)

I started playing seriously in my early twenties (just a few years ago...ahem, alright several years ago in another chapter of my life). And now, I'm a Mom with an unfulfilled need to ROCK out on my electric guitar and where am I going to find some other Moms to form a band? Judy Davids of the Mydols did it at 42 and recruited some friends and 6+ years later, she is rockin' out across Detroit. So, as I always is never too late to become what you might have been.

So, I am on a mission to find some moms/women who would like to start a band here in the OC!

It is never too ROCK ladies!
