Our regular host, Jill Spears, is away this week, so Patricia Naft is acting as guest host. Gardeners Lance Swigart & Lulu Volkhausen discuss a variety of issues, including the "dirty dozen," non-organic products that have the highest levels of pesticide residues. Weather, of course, is a big subject this week, as we had a bout of cold temperatures & quite a bit of snow. Several callers chimed in with questions & comments.

Long-time friends and associates of late rock icon Joe Cocker spent Monday hosting a tribute show to him. They broadcasted from the KVNF Cocker Studio and shared his music and their stories about him with listeners. Cocker lived in Crawford, Colo. for nearly two decades where he started the Cocker Kids' Foundation with his wife Pam. Cocker was also a major supporter of KVNF.
