AMAZING THEME SONG SINGERS, ANTIDEPRESSANTS AND ACCUPUNCTURE
Rosie Radio was broadcasting live from the Sirius studios in NYC today! She had the original singers of the Rosie Radio theme song sing the song LIVE at today's start of the show. It was so perfect you couldn't even tell it was live! Fantastic job! They quickly said their names and I think they were Connie Brooks and James Filladell. (I'm totally guessing on the spelling). They are both classically trained singers. Connie is singing with the Manhattan Choral Ensemble on Friday, June 11th.
The theme song
(The recording quality isn't great, but you get the idea!)
Rosie went to an Acupuncturist for the first time ever yesterday and she said it's the first night that she's slept well in months. Janette said her sister Lanette also loves Acupuncture and has gotten a lot of benefit from it. Rosie's now decided she's going to go once a week.
Rosie asked anyone if they could tell that she was wearing her pajama bottoms to the show yesterday and they ALL (including Pete) said YES, they could tell. Apparently she also wore them to see the physician she went to yesterday. Jeannie reminded Rosie about the time that Michael Jackson wore his pajama bottoms to court and Rosie asked her and Jackie to make sure and tell her if she ever "got to that point" and Jeannie warned her she's almost there.
JUST SAY NO TO POT, FOOD INC, AND NURSE JACKIE ROCKS
Janette talked about the anxiety she feels coming off of pot. Rosie asked Janette if she ever considered anti-anxiety medication but she said she never felt well on anti-anxiety medication and said she would like to go a non-pharmaceutical route to come off of it. Jeannie talked about how the first month she was on Lexipro she didn't like the way it made her feel but that now she feels more like her old self again. As a contrast, Janette's sister Lanette gained a ton of weight and said that she feels like she lost a decade of her life to anti-depressants. Rosie recommended that Janette try acupuncture and she said she would. Deirdre said she has been doing acupuncture for a long time and she loves it.
The Trailer for Food, Inc.
They also talked about how our hormone filled food industry has been linked to the early maturity of girls. Janette recommended the book Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life and talked about eating locally farmed beef and produce. Rosie said if everyone saw Food, Inc. it would change the way Americans eat and asked Deirdre if they could have the filmmakers on the show.
They took several callers on the topic of marijuana smoking and Janette talked about how she started smoking pot originally because she couldn't sleep. But, she said she always feels better when she's not smoking it as Rosie did during her "year without beer." Rosie said they are going on vacation on June 27th and asked Janette if she can go 2 months without smoking it and Rosie asked her to keep a log of what it feels like for her.
Rosie mentioned and recommended the show Nurse Jackie on Showtime. Rosie loves that show! Here's a trailer for that show. I love it too!!!!
