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

Covid19.gov Portal for Lake County has some good guidelines. 

Also see  CDC Communty Levels and  CDC Community Level Map for details on the current status.

How can people protect themselves?

The best way to prevent illness is to be fully vaccinated.  In addition, because of breakthrough cases, avoid being exposed to this virus. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet), and as aerosols, throughout a poorly ventilated area. This occurs through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person breaths, talks, coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the nose and lungs. Your best protection indoors  is a well-fitting surgical or N95 mask. Cloth masks are better than nothing, but give only slight protection. Older adults and people who have severe underlying chronic medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness. Every person has a role to play. So much of protecting yourself and your family comes down to common sense: 

  • Get vaccinated and boosted. 
  • Wear a Surgical or N95  mask in stores or other enclosed spaces.
  • Wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. If surfaces are dirty, clean them using detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid being in the same room as people who are sick.
  • Stay away from work, school or other people if you become sick with respiratory symptoms like fever and cough, or a sudden loss of taste and smell.
  • Following guidance from public health officials.

Please consult with your health care provider about additional steps you may be able to take to protect yourself.
