Sound Authors Radio Show Announces April 11th, 2008 Show Lineup

(E. Setauket, NY April 7, 2008)

World Talk Radio broadcasted on the Modavox network features Sound Authors, a live interview talk radio show.

Each Friday at 1PM Eastern Standard Time, Sound Authors radio show features live interviews and readings from all varieties of authors, known and not-yet-known; all soon-to-be bestselling authors from all walks of life, from Hollywood actors to marathoners, to PhD therapists or life coaches. On this talk radio show, it is the story that counts. Authors sound off on every possible topic, from cuisine to culture, and from nature to nurture.

The show also podcasts each interview separately, and all archived podcasts can be searched from the Sound Authors website at

The first author guest this week will be Diane Dike Ph. D, author of The Adventures of Gracie & Diane: Gracie Comes Home and her soon to be released autobiography God Made Only One of Me. Diane Dike is a passionate and popular speaker, author and singer and her heartbreaking, heartwarming and courageous story will inspire you to overcome your challenges.

The second guest featured on the show will be author Jewel Sample. Her children’s book, Flying Hugs and Kisses is a sensitive story of grief recovery and is a great resource for parents to use to help their children understand and affirm their experience of the loss of a sibling. It is her hope this story gives insight into a family’s creative support and courage to move forward in the midst of their grief.

The third guest on the show will be Haider Ala Hamoudi, author of Howling in Mesopotamia. As an Iraqi-American who spent two years living and working in Iraq directly after the fall of Saddam, he brings a deep understanding of both the Iraqi and American cultures that enables him to bring fresh insight to the situation we are facing today.

The musical guest for the show this week will be jazz piano and clarinetist Butch Thompson. In a career spanning over 40 years, he has earned a worldwide reputation as a traditional jazz and ragtime master. He tours widely as a soloist or at the helm of any of his several ensembles, including his well-known trio, his eight-piece Jazz Originals band, the Butch Thompson Big Three.

Tune in next week, April 18th, to the live show or podcast to hear Don Saliers, co- author of A Song to Sing, A Life to Live. In this rich exploration of music, authors Don and Emily Saliers interweave their own stories as well as those of others to reflect on the what, the how, and the why of music as a key aspect of spirituality in our lives. As an Indigo Girl, folk-rock singer-songwriter, Emily performs in primarily secular settings, while her father, Don - composer, cantor, and church musician - writes and arranges for church congregations.

Sound Authors radio show each week is replete with authors from around the country and around the world, each telling their tales, from self-help to fiction, children’s books to thrillers, how-to books to corporate guidebooks. Original music is also featured, along with up-and-coming bands and singer-songwriters. Listen for musician interviews and fresh music each week!

No need to run out to your nearest bookstore to find the next great book or CD. Tune in to Sound Authors every Friday at 1PM EST on World Talk Radio. Or check out any of the interviews on the web – they are all podcasted within a day or two of the interview. Sound Authors - where authors sound off!

Sound Authors Host Dr. Kent Gustavson’s background is in music, but his career has been in publishing. He is the owner of an independent book publisher, and a publishing consultant around the world. His many CDs and his book are available from his website online, or through the Sound Authors website.
