At 11:00 Mark talks with Paris based, Kansas City raised, singer songwriter Krystle Warren. We will premiere the new song, “Macca” from Krystle Warren & The Faculty, that was recorded on the heels of sessions for the band’s upcoming full length album EXTENDED PLAY to be released this year. Krystle says that the song, “became equal parts: a love letter to (Paul McCartney) and a note of encouragement to me. Which is a wonderful thing if you think about it.” We will talk LIVE with Krystle Warren on the phone from France. This is the first of three interviews we will be doing with Krystle over the next five weeks that culminate with a LIVE in-studio show with Krystle on May 26. Krystle will headline the KC Folk Fest 2023 on Saturday, May 20, in Washington Square Park, Kansas City, MO with Solomon Dorsey. Info: www.krystlewarren.com or www.kansascityfolkfestival.org

At 11:30 Mark welcomes Jake Walker who has been a professional actor for 20 years, and for most of those his artistic home has been Kansas City. In 2020 when covid hit, Jake and several colleagues from the theatre community banded together to create The Theatre Community Fund of Kansas City, or TCF for short, a non profit organization designed to provide support to KC theatre workers. First providing food and financial assistance, then growing to also provide free career development and urgent community care. More information at: www.theatrefundkc.org
