Our host David Twichell welcomes Yvonne Smith, a certified hypnotherapist who has practiced since 1990, dealing mainly with victims of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD. Early on in her career, she discovered that many of her patients, while under hypnosis, reported bazaar incidents of alien abductions which closely mirrored the experiences of her other patients. Today, she is regarded as one of the most respected practitioners in this field, a consultant for many documentaries on the subject, and a lecturer about it all over the world.

If it's the fourth Tuesday of the month, WHFR proudly spotlights another hard-working, socially-positive, local non-profit organization. Today's show: James Tatum, jazz pianist, founded the James Tatum Foundation after retiring. Since its beginning in 1987, it has raised over $300,000 and provided scholarships to over 600 students.

Pat Frisco returns to Spirits Rejoice tonight refreshed and recharged. Pat's musical journey is as deep and profound as it is challenging to describe. Avant garde jazz is as close as we come.

Here are the most recent two episodes of the half-hour radio/podcast show from the Sierra Club, the largest pro-environment non-profit organization in the world, including a very active chapter in Michigan.
