On September 10th our 23rd castaway on "Desert Island Discs" was RENEE BLANCHE, - Tai Chi practitioner, dancing machine and Vagina Monologue performer four years running. Renée has been the voice of the National Public Radio new age music program "Night Tides" on KCUR Radio 89.3 FM, Kansas City, Missouri every Sunday night since September 1994. Winner of Pitch Magazine’s “Best Of” in 2002 category “Best Sunday Night Ritual”. "Night Tides" is an eclectic blend of contemplative instrumental and electronic music that combines upbeat grooves and dubs with soothing melodies that whisper softly to the soul.. a labor of love and what Renee describes as "a chance to promote calm and quiet time after a long work week and a busy weekend."
