Listen up: May is ALS Awareness Month

Happy Spring Music City!  Lots of goings on in Mid-TN and I’m glad to be a part of it.  I’m also super happy to share it all with you.

This past week was Mother’s Day and I had the very distinct privilege of talking to a very extraordinary family share their story.  Robert Gowan was in the studio with his adorable kidlets, Catherine and Will, and their talented friend and nanny Morgan Myles.  Robert’s wife Amy Gowan lost her battle with ALS last August and the Gowan family is working very hard to raise awareness of this misunderstood and horrible disease.  We also debuted a beautiful, moving song written by Morgan for her dear friend Amy.  I don’t want to spill all the beans, so listen to their moving and beautiful tribute.  First up is Robert’s interview, followed by Morgan. 

Also up is a great interview with a young woman who figured out how to earn half a million dollars in college scholarships.  That’s right, $500,000!  This enterprising gal put herself through Vandy and Belmont and now has written a book sharing all that juicy “How-to” with you!  My interview with Kristina Ellis was fun and chock full of great tips for parents and soon-to-be college students.   

And, to round out this post, I spoke with Sara Trembath of Boxtops for Education.  She shared how Cheerios, Raisin Bran, Wheat Thins and many other items in your pantry can raise dollars for your local schools.  Check it out!  

Well, that’s it for now.  Keep listening to WKDF 103 and WGFX 104.5 The Zone for more great interviews and of course, music and sports!  Have a great week Music City!
