EPISODE 1: PASTOR GARY L. WYATT, Pastor of SureHouse, the baddest Church in Tacoma, WA, was in the Studio for the INAUGURAL Change Your Food – Change Your Life! Show sharing his Journey of Discovery and Good Health in making Organic Good Food Choices.

Heeerrre's Pastor Gary L. Wyatt!

DLW: I introduced Pastor Wyatt to Organic Good Foods, and after a series of TASTY Gifts of Good Health, and GOOD Stories to go along with them, he knew his change was coming, so he wrote this song for us, ’Til My Change Comes.  It tells of HOPE, HEALTH and A GOOD LIFE AHEAD. In fact, you filmed it LIVE with the Jackson Sistas and the SureHouse Band for the final track on your “Impeccable Worship” DVD, too.

I took Pastor Wyatt and Mother Cheryl on a Personally Guided Organic Good Food Shopping Tour @ Marlene’s Market & Deli.

For their 30-Day Review and Graduation I took Pastor Wyatt and Mother Cheryl to an ALL Organic Good Food Dinner @ a Restaurant in Seattle.  Well, the NEXT DAY, Saturday morning, Pastor Wyatt sent me an e-mail … “Stand by your laptop, I’m sending you a NEW SONG!”  He sent me GO-O and THAT O means ORGANIC!”

You had invited me as your Guest on your TBN TV Show a couple years ago and I think you & I DOUBLED the Prayer CALL-INS … a Pastor and a Good Food Guide goin’ on down the road together, SAVING & NOURISHING the SPIRITUAL SOUL, SAVING & NOURSING the PHYSICAL BODY.  Nice combo!


EPISODE 2: It was just the Audience and their Good Food Guide, ME!  I talked about WHY is it so important to know HOW to live the Organic Good Food Life.

DLW: It’s FUN.  It’s EASY.  It’s SIMPLE.  AND IT IS DELICIOUS to move towards the Organic Good Food Life with the simple system of REPLACEMENT & SUBSTITUTION … just each and every time you go to the store, simply make an Organic Good Food Choice in lieu of the non-organic poor food choice you may have ordinarily made: milk for milk  … chips for chips, apples for apples … organic ketchup for non-organic …  mustard, pickles, pepper, pizza, bananas and chocolate bars. And if you do that, over time you’ll end up with a pantry, refrigerator and Home full of good health.  It’s soooo EASY!

And I’ll tell you what… I’ve never felt better in my life.  I feel the way I was designed to feel, the way I was meant to feel.  Very few people ever feel the way they were designed to feel… the way they should feel … every day.  And I’ll tell you, once you know how you were designed to feel, how you should feel, how good you can feel, you’ll do anything and everything to preserve, defend and protect that genuine sense of well-being.  It is absolutely wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!

There ain’t nothin’ like it!  It’s to CELEBRATE!  You’ll want to SHOUT … I feeeeel good like I knew that I could …  I feel nice, like sugar and spice!  I’ve got more energy, more spirit than any 5 year old that you’ve seen jumpin’ straight up and down with unbridled excitement!

You DO feel THAT GOOD!  It’s LIFE worth LIVING!

Well … change your food, change your life and get up there with us.  We’ll tell you how, we’ll get you started on livin’ the Organic Good Food Life.


EPISODE 3: THE DIRT DOCTOR, John Porterfield, MontanaGrow™

DLW: OUR FUN GUEST, John Porterfield, President, MontanaGrow™ is calling in from downtown BONNER, Montana, along the shores of the beautiful Blackfoot River.  He’s not JUST President, he’s Mr. MONTANA aka Johnny Montana aka THE DIRT DOCTOR.  And my Good Food Friend, John, is no shrinking violet ‘scientist’!  He was tagged as Mr. MONTANA by Frankie B, front man for the funk/soul/blues Band SEPTIMUS, The ‘Official’ Band of Change Your Food – Change Your Life!, that we featured @ ORGANICOLOGY in Portland.  Mr. Montana cut a wide swath on the dance floor and had his O’s UP until the bar closed!  You even won yourself a t-shirt or two.  And that CROFTER’S® ORGANIC T-Shirt has served you well, would make anyone say they LOVE ORGANIC GOOD FOODS, too!  Something like a match .com thing!

John recently spoke before the Montana Organic Association.  Well, John was SUCH A HIT at the Montana Organic Association with his storytelling, and his unique Amorphous Silicon

1a MG

is such a demonstrated benefit to Organic Crop Health, Nutrient Uptake and Yields, that he was VOTED onto the Montana Organic Association’s Board by its 247 FARMERS, Electing a VENDOR to their Board for the FIRST TIME!

And TRUST ME, if you’re explaining Amorphous Silicon, you gotta be a GREAT STORYTELLER!

‘Course, RESULTS don’t hurt, either!

And, hey, John, isn’t MontanaGrow™ kinda like the little blue pill for plants?  How does it make ‘em stand up?

EPISODE 4: ELLEN KANNER, Author of the Award-Winning Book, “Feeding the Hungry Ghost – Life, Faith and What To Eat For Dinner”, called in from Miami, Florida

DLW: On today’s Change Your Food – Change Your Life! Show, calling in from Miami, Florida is our VERY SPECIAL GUEST, ELLEN KANNER.  She is Author of the Award-Winning Book “FEEDING the HUNGRY GHOST – LIFE, FAITH and WHAT TO EAT FOR DINNER” …

Ellen Kanner Book

… Syndicated Columnist, The Edgy Veggie, “Huffington Post” and “The Miami Herald”, a much-in-demand Keynote Speaker, Chef/Hostess of quite elegant Dinner Parties in and around Miami and just FUN!

1a Ellen Kanner with friend!cw

As someone once wrote about Ellen: “Warm, wicked, and one-of-a-kind, Ellen offers an irreverent approach to bringing reverence into daily living and eating. Every meal can feed not only our bodies but our souls and our communities as well.”

She believes in close Community, strong coffee, Organic Good Food and bright red lipstick!

Heeere’s ELLEN!

1a Ellen Kanner CHEF

You World traveler, YOU … I went to Disney World once … can you tell the story about the rice in your Sahara recipe that you helped cook with a non-English speaking woman in Morocco, and as you said, “Who needs a common language when you have Organic Good FOOD!”

I’m guessing there are many vegetarian and vegan listeners to the Change Your Food – Change Your Life! Show.  And since they’ll hear from a no better EXPERT than YOU, your having WON the “VegNews” BOOK OF THE YEAR, can you offer them some HELPFUL, HEALTHY  TIPS?

WHERE can our Audience get your Book Titled, “FEEDING the HUNGRY GHOST – LIFE, FAITH and WHAT TO EAT FOR DINNER” and HOW, Ellen, can they SUBSCRIBE to your Newsletter that always has POSITIVE, UPLIFTING Stories & GOOD THOUGHTS and RECIPES and DELICIOUS PHOTOGRAPY of YOUR RECIPES?  Even the Titles are FUN.  I think the last one was titled “HAPPY APRIL”!  ‘Course, what else could YOUR OUTLOOK BE from someone livin’ the Organic Good Food LIFE!  As I said in my opening to The Show, Change Your Food – Change Your Life is designed to put smiles on faces … AND Organic Good Food DOES!  So, now back to my original question, HOW can they subscribe to your Newsletter?


EPISODE 5: I’ve told the Story of Mary & Tonia, when a BEAN is NOT A BEAN, don’t ever trust those devil bakers, why you can’t trust THE QUAKER, why you should always buy TWO PACKS of non-organic tortillas and I  PROVED it costs less to live the Organic Good Food Life than not.  We exposed some LABEL LIES and had a HILARIOUSLY FUNNY non-organic label reading by our Producer, D-Money, HIMSELF.  We POSTED that one!  GUESS AT IT!!!


EPISODE 6 & 10: My VERY FAVE FARMGIRL, IRIS MONTAÑO-MADRIGAL of Covilli® BRAND ORGANICS has called in TWICE from Nogales, Arizona!


DLW: The last time you were on The Change Your Food – Change Your Life! Show, I had asked you to talk about Covilli® BRAND ORGANICS’ Growing Quality by Tradition.  For those NEW in our Audience, and even for those that may have heard you, would you please tell of the Quality aspect of it … the CARE & COMMITMENT Covilli® BRAND ORGANICS takes to GROW, PACKAGE and BRING WHOLESOME, HEALTHY Organic Good Food Fruits & Vegetables to us, the EATERS … Organic Good Food doesn’t JUST HAPPEN, nor should it EVER be taken for granted!

One listener I heard from was struck by your description of the ENTIRE Covilli® BRAND ORGANICS’ process of preparing the soil, raising the seed, planting your little babies, and packaging, which you described as carefully PLACING each Organic Good Fruit or Vegetable in a carton for shipping, not tossing into a box which packaging generally means.

The Founder of RainierAvenueRadio.World, Tony Benton, Tony B, Founded the RainierAvenueRadio.World Station to involve Community, to support Community, knowing that a Community together, can empower and lift one another up.  Well, IRIS, Tony B is going to LOVE the ‘good works’ of Covilli® BRAND ORGANICS … your FAIR TRADE commitment to directly support your workers and their Communities.


Lots of Companies say they care for their workers.  But through Covilli® BRAND ORGANICS’ FAIR TRADE COMMITMENT, farm workers are able to take ownership of their future by being able to choose, as a Community, how and when to invest the FAIR TRADE premium to lift up their lives and those of future generations.

What are the Projects Covilli® BRAND ORGANICS FAIR TRADE supports?

EPISODE 7: Award-Winning Children’s Book Author, KATHERINE PRYOR, told STORIES about THE STORIES she wrote.

DLW: So, now, here’s my GOOD Food Friend, Award-Winning Children’s Book Author, KATHERINE PRYOR, who I describe as a walking CELEBRATION of LIFE!  If you go to the dictionary or google ‘cheery’, you’ll see a little pen and ink sketch of my GOOD Food Friend, KATHERINE!


 In 2012, I met Katherine at a Fundraising Dinner for The Washington Sustainable Food & Farming Network.  As the evening’s speaker, Katherine was introduced as quite the FOOD ACTIVIST.  She told this FUN Story about WHY she became a Children’s Book Author while coming back home from an Olympia Lobbying event.  And so, your FIRST Children’s Book was born, “Sylvia’s Spinach”.  Tell THAT Story.

I have a quick FUN, TRUE Story about the EFFECT of “Sylvia’s Spinach”.  At your book signing, I asked you to autograph it to a little 6-year old girl, Katya.  The next day I gave it to her MOM and they read it together that evening.  Well, the next evening, her DAD, who had no idea there was A BOOK was about spinach, just happened to choose a spinach salad for dinner.  Katya’s eyes grew big when she saw his salad and put down her pizza to eat the spinach salad!

You’ve also written “Zora’s Zucchini” and are working on a third titled “Bea’s Bees”.  So, you’ll have Books, B, S & Z.  When do you think you’ll be COMPLETING the next 23 so Children can learn their ALPHABET from your Book TITLES?

I’ve seen YOU in action in your school reading program  … AMAAAZING … KEEPING & HOLDING the ATTENTION of normally squirmy little children.  How can MOMS make arrangements for you to come to their School with your BOOKS and your little red wagon full of spinach?

Children surrounding Author Katherine Pryor and learning about ''Slyvia's Spinach'cw'

Your BOOKS are so popular that “Sylvia’s Spinach” and Zora’s Zucchini” are in hardcover, paperback AND AUDIO?  Where can they get your BOOKS?


EPISODE 8: ‘The Good Doctor’ Dr. HERB JOINER-BEY ND made a HOUSE CALL in the Studio.

1a The Good Doctor w AMP cr

DLW: The Good Doctor, HERB JOINER-BEY, ND, is Author of “The Healing Power of Flax – The Definitive Guide”

1a FLAX 2

and Co-author of “The Omega-3 Miracle”, “Water: The Foundation of Youth, Health, and Beauty”, “The Face of Consciousness: A Guide to Self-identity and Healing” and with Joseph Pizzorno, ND, Founder of Bastyr University, and Michael Murray, ND, IT’S THE BIGGIE: “The Clinician’s Handbook of Natural Medicine”, 1st, 2nd & 3rd Editions!  It’s that Profession’s Guide Book … its TEXT BOOK.  He is the WORD!

1a Clincian's Guide 3

‘The Good Doctor’ DR HERB JOINER-BEY, ND, is a Scientist & an Educator.  He’s traveled the Country and the UK Speaking on the WHOLESOME, HEALTHFUL benefits of Organic Good Foods.  Seminars galore.  WON the NATURAL HEALTH EDUCATOR PIONEER AWARD at a recent Natural Products Association Conference.  Been on TV and so many Radio Stations that even HE couldn’t tell you how many.

Well, THE DOCTOR IS NOW IN THE HOUSE!  WELCOME, DR HERB JOINER-BEY to The Change Your Food – Change Your Life! Show on RainierAvenueRadio.World!

Let’s talk about Type 2 Diabetes.  But first, I’ve got to tell this little Story.  Change Your Food – Change You Life! was the HEADLINER for an American Diabetes Association EXPO @ Quest Field.  We were SURROUNDED by Hospitals, Insurance Companies and, OF COURSE, Drug Companies, which seemed to be THE SOLUTION.  But, since most people ‘catch’ Type 2 Diabetes by making lousy, non-organic poor food choices and can eat their way out of Type 2 by making Organic GOOD FOOD Choices … well my Friend, ‘The Good Doctor’ Dr, HERB JOINER-BEY, couldn’t help himself.  Now remember, we were surrounded by Drug Companies.  So, ON STAGE to introduce The Change Your Food – Change You Life! Show, ‘The Good Doctor’ says to the Audience, “You know, just like those Drug Companies all around us, Organic Good Foods have side effects, too.”  Everyone kinda moved up on the front of their chairs and he says, “But our SIDE EFFECTS are a BOUNCE IN YOUR STEP AND A SMILE ON YOUR FACE!”  We were never invited back, but at least he got THAT off his chest!

So, now about Type 2 Diabetes.  How can Organic Good Foods modulate the effects of Type 2 Diabetes … even help a person to put Type 2 behind ‘em

Well, DOCTOR HERB JOINER-BEY, THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing your day with us.  I can’t thank you enough for making all of our aches and pains go awayand no Co-Pay REQUIRED!!  WHAT A DEAL!

DLW: Did you know that DARRYL BOSSHARDT is FULL of SALT FACTS?  Well, HE IS!  Get your note pads out and listen.

Your family didn’t start out as salt miners.  I love that Story of how your Grandfather came upon your SALT.

All the rage now is sea salt, but if you think about it, whatever pollution is in the air, is in the water, is in the outdoors SEA salt, but REDMOND RealSalt® is pure as the driven snow because …


1a RSS RARcw

Ordinary TABLE SALT has had what DONE to it …and includes what UNEXPECTED adulterations?

Your REDMOND RealSalt® brings with it the Earth’s Trace Minerals.  How many … & their value to GOOD HEALTH?

REDMOND RealSalt® – AMERICA’S ONLY UNREFINED ANCIENT SEA SALT … you’ve explained the ANCIENT part, so now explain the UNREFINED part.

So, UNREFINED is actually the ‘refined’ choice!

There’s a great Video of your mine, STARRING YOU, DARRYL, that our Audience can watch on https://onedegreeorganics.com/farmers/realsalt/.

Your REDMOND Organic Spice SEASONINGS … I’m tellin’ the Audience your Organic SEASONING SALT is THE BEST!  Real Salt, Organic Garlic, Organic Onion, Organic Coriander, Organic Mustard, Organic Black Pepper, Organic Paprika, Organic Celery Seed, Organic Turmeric and Organic Parsley … all that FLAVOR in one little shaker!  I use it on soups, salads, sandwiches, pastas … can’t live without it!

1a RRS Organic_seasonings_Gift_Pack_2cw

ONLY REDMOND RealSalt® can make AnnaMaria and her FANS THIS HAPPY … and YOU, TOO!  “When the Salt Shakes!” 

When I first met REDMOND RealSalt® in about 2002, there were a couple of you sitting behind a little table with some of those beautiful pearlescent REAL SALT rocks … caught my eye … and a black & white flyer.  THIS year at ExpoWest, the World’s Largest Natural & Organic Trade Show, REAL SALT had TWO, BIG BEAUTIFUL Displays: SALTS in the FOOD Arena, and in the BEAUTY PRODUCTS Arena, Mineral Bath Salts, Tooth Pastes and REDMOND’S BENTONITE CLAY Facial Mud Masks & Baby Powders AND a 20-Page FULL COLOR CATALOG! … I LOVE SUCH SUCCESS!

EPISODE 11: MICHELLE ZERBIB, MSN, CN, Masters of Nutrition Science and DIRECTOR of STANDARDS for NEW HOPE NETWORK, Producer of the World’s LARGEST Organic and Natural Trade Shows and Conferences called in from Boulder, Colorado.


DLW: MICHELLE ZERBIB, MSN, CN, and I met way back in 2002.  I was introducing my Company, Change Your Food – Change Your Life!, to the Hartman Group, a Good Food/Trends Research and Consulting Company.  I mentioned that Change Your Food – Change Your Life! was doing Personally Guided Organic Good Food Shopping Tours in Grocery Stores. Michelle was the Director of Wellness for the Hartman Group and was just finishing up her Master’s Thesis @ Bastyr University, making the case for Nutritionists being IN Grocery Stores, being proactive GOOD FOOD GUIDES for GOOD HEALTH rather than having to be reactive in a Clinic/Hospital setting trying to help people RECOVER their health from having made lousy poor food choices.  I was doing what she was writing about and she was writing about what I was doing … so we’ve been GOOD FOOD FRIENDS ever since.

Then she moved to Boulder, Colorado, and made herself famous @ NEW HOPE NETWORK!

1a NewHOPE

And I might say how prescient MICHELLE was, as there is NOW a growing movement to place Dietitians and Nutritionists IN Grocery Stores!

So, NOW, here’s my VERY GOOD, GOOD FOOD Friend MICHELLE ZERBEB! Welcome, MICHELLE, to The Change Your Food – Change Your Life! Show on RaininerAvenueRadio.World.

As DIRECTOR OF STANDARDS for the whole shootin’ match @ NEW HOPE NETWORK, WHAT DO YOU REVIEW?  I know our Audience will find it fascinating … the care and attention, the thoroughness of your Department … to make sure no one is stretchin’ the truth, making claims they shouldn’t be and to insure that Consumers aren’t buying a lie!  So, what do you review?

Every year before ExpoWEST, MICHELLE & I have coffee on the patio of the Anaheim Sheraton and then she rushes off for FOUR FULL DAYS at a frenetic pace.  I’ve seen you in action, MICHELLE, but tell the Audience just how busy you and your Staff are in monitoring the Standards that you’ve approved and how you roam the Trade Show Floor.

NEW HOPE NETWORK is also Publisher of a Consumer Magazine “DELICIOUS LIVING”, full of recipes, health tips, what’s new, supplements, beauty and living.  Where can our Audience pick up a copy of “DELICIOUS LIVING”?

You’ve recently come upon a new way of eating for yourself.  A ketogenic lifestyle.  WHAT IS a KETOGENIC LIFESTYLE … and YOUR ORGANIC GOOD FOOD CHOICES that support it?

What are the BENEFITS of a KETO LIFESTYLE?  What has it done FOR YOU?

If someone wants to be just like you, what’s a good KETO resource for someone in our Audience to refer to?

Sometime, if you’d like to read how rigorous MICHELLE IS in insuring that good food is, in fact, GOOD FOOD, go to www.NewHope.com/Standards

EPISODE 12: We just finished Recording The Change Your Food – Change Your Life Show MUSICAL!

DLW: Our CHANGE YOUR FOOD – CHANGE YOUR LIFE!™ Presents: GOOD LiViN’ , a 16-Track Compilation CD Album, is an original and a one-of-a-kind.


We believe the culmination of our 10-years work of recruiting Singers and Musicians in a variety of Genres and the Lyrics Messaging creates a unique and energized ORGANIC GOOD FOOD, GOOD HEALTH Narrative, one of JOY, FUN, STRENGTH & EMPOWERMENT.

Jazz, Pop, Rap, Gospel, Blues.  You can EXERCISE to it, DANCE to it, SING to it, SHOP to it, BBQ to it, EAT to it, DRINK to it, LEARN to it, be INSPIRED by it.

IT IS many diverse voices coming together with but one MESSAGE: Our Change Your Food – Change Your Life Artist Ambassadors hope that one of their Songs catches your ear and makes that healthful difference in your life!

And EVERY SONG has a back story!

YOU NEED a good, long life, a life full of energy … a long, engaged life, with all your options always right in front of you.  But you can’t get that good life unless you choose FOOD!  And unless you’re making 100% Organic Good FOOD Choices, you’re not even choosing food! … but rather, you’re choosing from a variety of non-organic concoctions created by the boys in laboratories wearin’ white coats and rubber gloves! Don’t Buy The Lie!

Solomon Wyatt & The Sanctified Soldiers ATK – Dre, Tmac, K-Strat

I had the good fortune to ENJOY a 100% Grass-Fed Organic Rib Eye Steak, prepared medium-rare to perfection by Chef Al Rosas, The Organic Chef™.  It was soooooooooo GOOD that I asked our Change Your Food – Change Your Life! Artist Ambassador, ‘Cool Jazz’ Vocalist from Taos, NM, ELLEN LIVESAY, to write a smoky little song about it called, Sizzle for Me.

We think Sizzle for Me is the HOTTEST Song in the Organic Good Food World!

As one listener said, “After listening to Ellen’s Sizzle for Me, I wished I could have had a cigarette!”



Our Artist Ambassador, ELLEN LIVESAY, also asks, “Is there a farm girl in you?” in MaryJanesFarm, Ellen answers that question with a BRIGHT, FUN song.  And if you listen to it just a couple of times, you’ll be singing these lyrics to yourself: “Farm chick, city chick, urban, outdoor any chick … That’s you!”



I asked 14-year old KEELY CLARK, Winner of the Taste of Edmonds’ Junior Idol Contest, if she had the opportunity to get up on Stage and encourage her peers to make better food choices, Organic Good Food Choices, how would she pitch it, how would she sing it.  She and her 12-year old Sister, Gabby, wrote the lyrics, and we put a track to it.  The COOL THING about It’s Your Beat! is that it’s a song written by TEENS for TEENS, PEER TO PEER. Not an Adult tellin’ a kid what to eat!

1a MUSICALthumbnail_52a


On Track 15, we have an old BLUES GUY who still doesn’t quite get it with his Oreo® Cookie Blues.  He’s then CORRECTED by our 11 year-old NIQUE NIQUE with Secret to Life: “I may be young but I know what’s right, Change Your Food and Change Your Life!”  And as MULTI-YEAR AWARD-WINNING BLUES MASTER, NICK VIGARINO,

said, “OK, I’ll be the fall guy for the KID!”

As ‘they’ say, “I knew him when!”  In 2011, I was touring a small Trade Show in Portland, OR., ORGANICOLOGY, looking for what Organic Good Foods were NEW, HOT, JUST GOTTA HAVE.  There I meet Daryoush Davidi, PhD, Founder of United with Earth Organic Dates.

BELIEVE me, HIS World is DATES!  He is so up with DATES that he proposed to his Wife where … under a Date Tree, OF COURSE!  And you know, it’s really nice to meet someone who’s really jazzed about his business and not just doin’ time until the weekend.

He stood there in front of his sign, with a couple stacks of Organic Good Food Medjool Dates, with two in his hands trying to convince the passers-by just how GOOD his Organic Medjool Dates were.

Typically Medjool Dates are sold in bulk in the produce section next to bananas in unsealed boxes whose lids are ALWAYS open and you wonder who has touched ‘em, and how, just before you.  And the dates crystallize and loose their fresh look and become less than appealing, and customers tend to stay away from this wonderfully nourish FOOD.

Well, Daryoush Davidi’s Dates (I just LOVE that alliteration, don’t you) are presented in sealed 1-pound packages and are THE SWEETEST, PLUMPEST, SOFTEST DATES EVER!  And I know DATES from DATES!

The Change Your Food – Change Your Life!™ Good Food Girls had some FUN with that T-shirt of his, too!


So, six years later … a BIG, BEAUTIFUL BOOTH with STAFF @ THE BIG SHOW, ExpoWEST!!!!


And now of course, Daryoush even has a Conference Table!  I so admire SUCCESS!

What would be appropriate following The Mango Tango?  Ice-cold Bottles of UNCLE MATT’S® ORGANIC Orange Mango Juice for the crowd, of course!  CHEERS!

And as at any GOOD Rock ‘n’ Roll Show, Change Your Food – Change Your Life!™ Presents GOOD LiViN’, UNCLE MATT’S® ‘I’m on the JUICE’, Organic. Eat me. & CROFTER’S® ORGANIC T-Shirts were tossed to the crowd!  WILD!

The ‘Official’ Band of Change Your Food – Change Your Life!™

Coming to ORGANICOLOGY 2017

Thursday Evening, February 2, 2017


SEPTIMUS CELEBRATES the JOY Organic Good Foods bring to LIFE! 


Lead Singer Frankie B holding high UNCLE MATT’S® Organic Orange Mango Juice!

ORGANICOLOGY is adding a NEW dimension to its great gathering of The Organic Community.  Organic Good Foods are so GOOD they now have a Band that CELEBRATES them in SONG!

Change Your Food – Change Your Life!™, a GOOD HEALTH Edutainment Company, Introduces its ‘Official’ Band, SEPTIMUS to ORGANICOLOGY 2017.

SEPTIMUS is the only Band I know of that can lay down absolute kickin’ covers of Hendrix, Waters, Marley, The Stones, Womack, Tupac, Gap Band Early in the Morning, The Commodores Brick House, Bill Withers Use Me, lots of their own stuff – Reggae Man, Looking for Ulysses, Pea Vine, Forever, Fame, Congressman … along with a Portfolio of Organic Good Food Songs, Songs that CONNECT with the Audience and to WHY they’re gathering at ORGANICOLOGY in the first place … To CELEBRATE Organic Good Foods!  SEPTIMUS represents Family, History, Diversity and Social Justice ALL in ONE PACKAGE … EVERYTHING the ORGANICOLOGY Audience supports and appreciates.


When SEPTIMUS performs Early In The Morning, I can see the Attendees groovin’ & floatin’ to it on the dance floor, writhin’ & grindin’ with their hands above their heads, and then with the staccato of “Get Up, Get Up”, fingers to the sky!!!


SEPTIMUS will take some in the Audience back to their Woodstock Days and then have everyone STANDING at Attention with their hands over their Hearts when they hit the Organic Good Food Anthem, GOOD LiViN’!  

 There’s a Song for Vendors, for Farmers, for Grass-Fed Ranchers, for Eaters, for Truth-Tellers, for Advocates and SONGS, for of course, DANCERS and THE COOL ones!  They can DO IT ALL!



SEPTIMUS puts a WHOLE NEW SPIN on Organic Good Foods!  Change your Food – Change Your Life!™ and SEPTIMUS have taken Organic Good Foods where they’ve never been before … into Pepperoni & Whisky Bars.

Ronald Abraham Brown, Bass


Cousins, and Brothers Coleman Bluesman Brown, Guitar


Motown Recording Artist, Herman L. Brown, Guitar

On a love song, Herman Brown’s BEAUTIFUL Guitar will peak out and kiss your ears,


and on a Blues, will make ya stand up and holler!

Ron Brown and Coleman Bluesman Brown will take you directly to Hendrix.  In fact, some of you just might think you’re back in Woodstock 1968.  Coleman’s BLUES RIFFS will rip at your ears and make you so HAPPY!


JohnLee Rodde keeps the PERFECTLY selected beat.


And then there’s Frank will knock ya down Brown – Front Stage STAR, Vocals/Keyboard – ALL over the Stage & ROOM! On one song, you just might find him sitting at your table and singing to YOU Forever. On another, Frankie B just might be on the dance floor with you and giving you a jar of CROFTER’S® ORGANIC Jam during JAMMIN’, or a Bottle of UNCLE MATT’S® Organic Orange Mango Juice during The Mango Tango, their NEW Bar HIT!






The dynamics are wonderful.

ORGANICS in a Bar?

1a ccBAR

My Good Food Friends –

A recent appearance by The Legendary  Funk/Soul/Blues/R&B/Rock Band, SEPTIMUS, the ‘Official’ Band of Change Your Food – Change Your Life! … having FUN with ORGANIC Good Foods & Juices everywhere they go!

Back by popular demand, SEPTIMUS returned to Capitol Cider www.CapitolCider.com for ANOTHER rockin’  evening!



Capitol Cider’s Showroom has an intimate, Vegas Lounge Show  feel to it.  It’s as though you have your own personal Band playing right to you. GREAT Venue.

More than once, SEPTIMUS brought ‘em to their feet with Lively Up Yourself  (Bob Marley), Early In The Morning  (Gap Band), How Do U Want It  (Tupac) and Coleman Brown, Vocals with a loooooong Guitar riff in I’m a Man  (Muddy Waters), destroyed the place!


Then of course, Frankie B asks, “Anyone here eat Organic Good Foods?”  And just one or two people raised their hand.  “We’re workin’ on a little GIN & JAM  for CROFTER’S® ORGANIC and we’ll be playing The Mango Tango  later tonight, our new Bar HIT!  That’s why you see Bottles of UNCLE MATT’S® Organic Orange Mango Juice up here on Stage WITH US!  Eat Organic, eat good, eat healthy, look good!  OK?  Right!”



And YEAH, they DRINK what they SING!

      IMG_9278c     1a IMG_9281ccc

I saw at least a couple dozen people taking Videos throughout the evening.  So whoever they shared them with, or posted to sites, VIEWERS will SEE those ORANGE Bottles of UNCLE MATT’S® Organic Orange Mango Juice glowing brightly … in EVERY SCENE!

Pouch packages are hugely popular—but they’re not recyclable, meaning they go straight to the landfill. The patent-pending packaging is made from birch and eucalyptus wood pulp, non-GMO corn and non-toxic ink. That’s nice, but so what. HOW do you get the public interested in compostables?

Eric said his Wife, coincidently, had eaten some non-organic version of those PB&J’s, the only PB&J snack sans without the crust she could find when she didn’t want to make ‘em herself. Right at the table, Eric texted his Wife http://luvmefoods.co. Her IMMEDIATE text back: “OMG!!!! BEST NEWS OF MY LIFE! MY LIFE IS COMPLETE!!!”
