Here's some older shows from when Chi Time was a monthly show soley on ExpressFM.

Now Chi Time is aired on the Soul Traveller Radio network and this is the show that has been brought back to Express.



23rd APRIL The Dr. Emoto Show!

Only a most esteemed natural scientist DR. MASARU EMOTO is on your Chi Time!

So we are talking all things special about water, along with hydration and cellular memory, Dr. Emoto's work has revealed a

way to show that positive words and feelings can have an effect on the molecular structure of water. By freezing treated water he watches crystals grow through a microscope and photographs them for us to see.


Easter Saturday, the Carrington House Hotel Bournemouth, 400+ people converge to hear and see the eminent spiritual scientist Dr. Masaru Emoto. Organised by Jackie Deakin, whom I asked if there would be a possibility of doing a little Chi Time interview with the esteemed Dr... Well, here is the result!
Along with commentaries from Amanda Ellis who also got to interview him for her book and Jackie about how on earth she managed to organise such a high profile event in such a short space of time, 8 days!


Here's what she had to say about the show:
"Just listening to the end with John Lennon... where did that last hour go... fascinating show, I loved it... probably a lot to do with the fact that I was mentioned quite a lot but still incredibly interesting as I learnt about some bits that I missed on the night.. thank you for your input in making this event such an incredible experience. A tribal celebration indeed."


We catch up with Richard Ellis too, as he reflects on how it was for him and I offer interjections, questions, observations all the way through with a buoyant meditation to see you all floating off into a gentle repose - it is a late night show!


Here's his website - masaru-emoto.net

2nd APRIL our Ease-Ta Chi Time!

Ok, so its got an Eastery theme! Though not quite what you'd expect from songs about rabbits, birds, and loosely connected with eggs - The xx's! and chocolate (obviously)


Involving a well loved live band from Brighton THE MOULETTES, whom I saw supporting the crazy world of the old rocking shaman Arthur Brown and was mesmerised by the song I am playing you in this show. They are playing the CELLARS in SOUTHSEA on the 23rd April and continue their tour over to CHI-CHESTER on the 24th, BRIGHTON the 25th and POOLE on the 26th, the JOHN PEEL centre, STOWMARKETon the 27th and that's just April! They are on it this season and I believe they are appearing at several festivals in the summer , so see if you can catch them as they criss-cross the country to bring you their sonic synergy of theatrical, tuneful, heart lifting, playful melodies and rhythms to tap out your toes to and more, for a delighted night out :)

Check out more about them here;


Chatting us up a storm is JUDE SHAW on RAW FOOD TREATS and THERESA SUNDT on her LIFE in COLOUR.
