Welcome to our first ever show sponsor, South King Fire & Rescue. Yeah, that's right, the firefighters. Kind of makes you look at us differently, doesn't it? Okay, even if it doesn't, you want to listen in to find out what's good at the fire station this month. Dates covered: May 1-15, 2016. Highlights: Well, obviously fun with firefighters, also Morticia vs. Elvis, classical vs. folk, help for the Mother's Day challenged, dare to dream and be in a documentary, May Day Triple Play and a Sesame Street flashback. Stop, drop and roll with us, won't you?
What do you get when you mash up graffiti, grit, tradition, magic, nature and tiny trees? That's Decked Out: From Scroll to Skateboard, premiering at Federal Way's own Pacific Bonsai Museum this month. It's probably the biggest concept art exhibition ever created around here and it's going to be crazy cool.
This bonus episode is an exclusive interview with PBM Curator Aarin Packard and Seattle street artists Angelina Villalobos and Sam Wallis, all part of the ridiculously creative team bringing this exhibit to life. We talk origin stories, sacred scrolls, lanky trees with crazy tendrils and a time when being a number is a good thing.
Thanks to Aarin, Angelina, Sam and PBM for their time and generosity.

Can a little ole town like Federal Way be the home of world class art? Umm, yeah it can! We’ve got the interview to prove it, so there. Dates covered: April 17 - 30, 2016. Highlights: Earth Day early adopters and the rest of us, D-D-D-Día fiestas, spray paint + scrolls + tiny trees = cool interview, captain my captain, listen to my poem, all the business ladies. Our apologies to Beyoncé.
