Moonalice is an exuberant Bay Area ten-piece band known for delivering a unique blend of psychedelic soul and rock-tinged Americana. Led by vocalist Lester Chambers, from the pioneering '60s psychedelic soul group The Chambers Brothers; bassist Pete Sears, a founding member of Jefferson Starship who has played with everyone from Rod Stewart to Jimi Hendrix; and founder/guitarist Roger McNamee. Their incredible chemistry shines through in their live performances and the recent release of an album featuring the Chambers Brothers classics Time Has Come Today, People Get Ready and Let's Get Funky. Moonalice also features esteemed members Barry Sless (lead guitar and pedal steel), Mookie Siegel (keyboards), Grammy winner John Molo (drums), along with Lester's dynamic son Dylan Chambers, and Erika, Rachel, and Chloe Tietjen of acclaimed Americana band the T Sisters. Moonalice has a renegade spirit and an ethos of love, peace, and happiness that permeates everything they do.

Carolyn Bowen Hawley

KPFZ is sad to hear of the recent death of Carolyn Hawley,  long-time Wordweavers  host.

She was born in Indiana, and studied music at Mills College, Berkeley. She moved to Ukiah in 1969, where she was a founder of the Ukiah Symphony Orchestra. Her "biggest" piece is the "Russian River Mass", with orchestra and choir. Her "smallest" and perhaps  most beautiful are her tone poems of birds and animals around her hill-top house in Nice.

In addition her "serious" performances, she played frequently at the Blue Wing Saloon in Upper Lake.  
She was also a skilled artist, and held exhibitions at the Main Street gallery in Lakeport, and in Upper Lake.

I don't have the exact date she started her radio shows on KPFZ, but she covered a wide range of music, including an introduction to  Classical music, and a series of interviews with modern composers.

Alan Fletcher

I plan to host an official remembrance show on October 15
