The Camille Conte Show 3-27-2020

Let me give you shelter from the storm. As we continue with our physical distancing we stay socially connected and strive to find new ways to look at what's happening so we can go the distance and keep ourselves healthy. Plus, The New Music Spotlight wraps up Women's History Month with the first in ten years from Dixie Chicks, Alabama Shakes front woman, Brittany Howard's debut solo album and from central Jersey, Donna Missal's new one, You Burned Me. And I honor my mom, who I miss so much, with The Joke of the Week and a poem. Enjoy.

The Camille Conte Show Live - 3-19-2020

The show is also going live during the week with callers so we can stay connected in real time as life as we know it morphs into something we can't yet see. Today I spoke with Anchorage small business owner and friend, Laile Fairbairn to understand more intimately what this experience has been like and how she and others in her industry are dealing with this unprecedented time of change and economic loss. And then, to remind us that we are all connected, I get a call from Queen JB in Nigeria who shares what's happening in her country. Here we go.

The Camille Conte Show 2-21-2020

Well, last week grief was behind the steering wheel and it was quite the ride. This week it's in the passenger seat though it does grab the wheel from me a few times. I'm not sure how many shows or podcasts there are out there in this big world that play Pink Floyd, Liz Phair and Billie Eilish in the same hour while talking about the anger that flexes its muscle inside the experience of grief and loss but The Camille Conte Show does just that, at least this week. Even more reason to consider a donation during this year's fundraiser going on now through March 5th. You can become a DREAMRAISER here.

Thank you for your support! Peace CC

The Camille Conte Show - Dedicated to My Mom 2-24-2020

It has not been easy putting this show together in memory of my mom whose passing is sudden, unexpected and difficult to accept. There is still so much to share and I look forward to doing just that as I return to the microphone next week. This week's show uses music, hers and mine, to help me communicate my feelings at this time of loss and yet celebration. I've added some of her jokes and one of the exchanges we had, all of which I'm so grateful to have recorded. 

I thank you for your love and support, your words of comfort and sympathy as well as your encouragement to keep going. My mom insisted "the show must go on" and implored me to do my January fundraiser as soon as possible. She is my greatest cheerleader. 

And so this one's for you, ma. Thanks for everything. I love you tons.
