Thank you for joining us this wonderful Easter weekend. We are excited about this week's program and hope you will share it with your friends and colleagues.
My first guest is
Tim Laughlin, an incredible New Orleans musician,
Just why is the music of New Orleans so unique in all the world? This NOLA born clarinetist gives us a history lesson on the music and musicians that are the fascinating story behind the very special sounds of the famed “Crescent City”. Tim is a regular performer at the annual French Quarter Festival in New Orleans and this year is no exception. Continued
From New Orleans, we'll go to climbing Mt. Kilminjaro and we will introduce you to Darol Kubacz, Founder, Freedom For Life.  How you would like to climb all 19,000+ feet of Mount Kilimanjaro? OK, how would you like to do it using only the strength of your upper body? That’s what Darol did. Darol lost the use of his legs while in the U.S. Army in 1992. Then, after nine years of pushing the limits of his ability as a paraplegic, he broke his neck while freestyle ski-jumping.  Continued

Climbing Mt. Kilminjaro in Tanzania Africa


Jeremy Lowney, USA Director of
Wild Kingdom Safaris & Cultural Tours

AFRICAN SAFARIS

Jeremy Lowney, USA Director of Wild Kingdom Safaris!.
As a young missionary in Tanzania, Africa,
Jeremy Lowney fell in love with the continent, the country and the people. After much brainstorming about how to best raise the standard of living for local villagers near the base of Kilimanjaro, Jeremy joined with two Tanzanian partners to form a safari and cultural tours company called Wild Kingdom Safaris!. Continued
MEDICAL TOURISM
Bruce Fairchild, Regional Director of Operations for the Kahler Hotels joins me from the Rochester, Minnesota, USA to talk about medical tourism. Believe it or not, the world's first true medical tourism hospital complex in the world may have grown up right here in the USA. People from all over the world have been coming to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester since it was first founded over 100 years ago. Continued

FOOD & JAMAICA
Darren McGrady
,
“The Royal Chef”.
We serve up some royal pudding in a delightful interview with the man who spent 11 years cooking for the Queen of England and the Duke of Edinburgh at Buckingham Palace, and four years as private chef to Princess Diana and her family at Kensington Palace.  Chef McGrady is rightfully known as “The Royal Chef” and will be the featured “culinary rock star” at the upcoming Epicurean Escape at the Grand Lido in Negril, Jamaica June 24-28, 2009. Continued

Downloadable Guidebooks
Daniel Quadt
, Founder and Managing Director of GuideGecko out of Hong Kong will also join me.
From what we can tell, when it comes to finding a travel guide book, GuideGecko.com could be the next Library of Congress. This newly launched site is both
a publishing house and an online purveyor of a huge number of travel guide books, almost 2,000 titles so far, and counting.
Continued
Electric Bike Motors
Brent Bolton, Co-Founder and CEO of EcoSpeed will give us an update on the pre-production status of EcoSpeed’s new, all electric, power assist propulsion systems for bicycles. With this high quality motor and transmission you’ll be able to power straight up the steepest hills on your favorite bicycle with literally “no sweat!” Yet, you can still have as light or as vigorous a workout during your ride as you please. Continued
Thank you for joining us and next week we will be broadcasting live from New Orleans. Please join us in the French Quarter or in the comfort of your home and remember our archives are available directly after the broadcast.
Safe travels and
Thank you for your email.

Update from last week.

We had much interest in last week's program about cruise victims uniting under the International Cruise Victims Association. The ICVA has provided additional information and if interested recommends completing the following and sending it on to your friends to also sign. Send this to your Senator and Send this to your Congressman.

We have asked the International Cruise Council Line to return to TravelTalkRADIO and talk about Cruise safety. Last word, they were checking schedules of spokespeople.
