At 10:30 Lonnie Fisher plays live in our 90.1 FM Studios. Lonnie Fisher studied music at Kansas State University, graduating in 1992. By 1999 he was touring with his band, Sturgeon Mill. After the band broke up Lonnie embarked on a solo career while also pursuing a career as a chef. After the loss of his girlfriend to cancer in 2005 Lonnie began to struggle with alcoholism. In 2008 Lonnie suffered a major stroke followed by a second stroke two years later. His life as a chef and musician stopped as Lonnie struggled to relearn everything and rehabilitate. Against all odds, Lonnie returned to the studio and stage in 2018. He couldn’t return to the kitchen due to the inability to move fast enough, but started his own business as a personal chef. Lonnie Fisher and The Funeral released the album, HAUNTED on Oct. 22, 2021; his solo album FAMOUS GIRL on Jan. 19, 2022; his solo album, BEAUTIFUL STAR on February 9, 2023; and his EP, SEEDS on July 28, 2023. Lonnie is working on a new record, FLOATING PALACE, with Duane Trower at Weights & Measures Soundlab. Info at: www.lonniefisher.bandcamp.com.

At 11:30 Mark talks with Adee Dancy (Sisterbot), a performing artist born and raised in the KC area. Adee is a student of many teachers and disciplines, attempting to amalgamate all they have learned and loved into their artistic life. Adorning many different hats, Adee has stepped into a multitude of roles in their career such as professional cellist, music director, vocalist, composer, actor, and more. With dynamic string writing and theatrical rock at the helm of their work, Adee captains a project and alter-ego called Sisterbot, that fuses their multiple disciplines. Adee feels extremely lucky to have music, art, and theater as means of expression and livelihood! Adee has collaborated with many groups including Owen Cox Dance Group, No Divide KC, and also is part of the trio, The Swallowtails. Sisterbot (full band) plays The Rino, 314 Armour Road, North Kansas City, Friday, February 9, 2024 with Amy Elizabeth Queen, and Foxlin. More information at http://sisterbotmusic.com
