Margaret is one of those people whose mere presence makes everything better. She has been a major mover and shaker on the Santa Fe local music scene for many years. Along with being a great bass player and singers, Margaret was on the committee that helped David Lescht run the Santa Fe Plaza Bandstand.

Santa Fe drummer, producer, and man about town Cozy Ralston stopped by Casita de Broomdust this morning. Wow. Where to begin? The pouring rain came shortly after his departure, as if we were not blessed enough by spending a very short couple of hours of discussion with this Santa Fe musical icon and impresario. We talked about recording at Frogville, the magic of Bill Palmer, Joe West, the Rockets, Blues Traveler, Neil Young, and of course, Bruce Springsteen, Max Weinberg, and the rest of the E Street Band. We also talked about time, drumming, practice techniques, consciousness, touring, Cozy's musical beginnings, and much much much much more. This is a good 'un. Don't miss it!

Santa Fe shamanic teacher and psychotherapist Luisa Kolker joins Eric and Johny for a discussion of spiritual journeying, music, community, and many other topics. The discussion ranges from Shamanic work to Jemez Pueblo dances to ceremonial gardening to the use of plant medicine to the role of music in spirituality and community consciousness. There is some talk about the most recent Frogfest, the Strange, the Broomdust Caravan, the perils of an "open stage," the importance of boundaries, and the power of group consciousness. Luisa reveals what led her to leave the United States to become a student of a shamanic spiritual teacher in Spain. She talks about her grandmother, Concepción Palacios, first female physician in Central America and a Sandanista hero in Central American liberation struggles; in her nineties, she still wore combat boots and cammies to work in the garden! Luisa lives in Eldorado so how could there not be at least a brief discussion of the great Eldorado Chicken Fuster Cluck?! Much of this week's podcast is about the power and beauty of spiritually connected communities. "There's beer, there's marijuana, and then, there's also . . . what I think was the hidden allure of the Grateful Dead, which was the Theta brain wave state."
