Ep. 31: Saundra Williams, Adam Lowitt - March 31, 2015
It's Spring time in New York City! Yes, it's is still chilly, overcast and we are all tired of the winter. In honor of the Spring that has not happened, Shonali brings in the March episode of WDEK in a purple dress, a sun hat, sunglasses, bright green bucks as in shoes and shaking her pom poms.  Christian had nightmares the night before the show. The entire audience monitors Christian and Shonali's use of "like", "um", "wow" and "no."   Our first guest is the talented singer Saundra Williams. She is a member of new Daptone recording artists, Saun and Starr, and also a back-up singer for Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings.  She's from the South Bronx and has been singing since she was a young girl.  She talks about her journey as a performer, including church choir, her father, a wedding band, her special relationship with Starr Duncan Lowe and Sharon Jones, appearances at Live at the Apollo in Harlem and so much more.  Saun and Starr just debuted a new video featured a soul funk hit called Big Wheel.   Our second guest is comedian and executive producer of the Daily Show, Adam Lowitt.  Adam is a newlywed and Shonali recently attended his wedding.  Adam sent himself to Outward Bound for a reason. He also helped build part of the Appalachian Trail.  Adam sits beside John Stewart during writers' meetings. All the writers bomb in front of John when preparing for the show. Jason Lam was in consideration (in his own mind) as John Stewart's replacement. Check out his audition tapes.   Do you know what Adam's dad's name is? Let us know. Do you know how to pronounce Shonali's name? Neither does Christian. Happy Holidays everyone!
