Wellington, FL – February 27, 2012 – Mason Phelps Radio’s eighth segment will be held on Thursday, March 1, 2012 at 5:00 p.m. EST on W4CY.com. Media Personality Steve Williams will be co-hosting alongside Phelps once again, and this week will feature Benjamin Aillaud and Whitney Tower as guests. Phelps and Williams, along with their esteemed guests, will discuss the up and coming Cavalia show, as well as how to get a different perspective on life from an editor of Town and Country Magazine.
Equestrian Director and Choreographer Benjamin Aillaud will be the first guest on this week’s show. Aillaud has been involved with horses ever since childhood. At the age of six, he bought his first horse and began jumping, vaulting, Western riding, learning dressage and carriage riding for pleasure. From that moment on, his objectives and philosophy began to take shape – training versatile horses that will enjoy and maintain their interest in performing. At the age of 33, his career is already impressive as twice vice-champion of the World for his efforts in four-horse carriage driving as well as four-time champion of France in four-horse carriage. Aillaud has also directed equestrian shows, and since 2009 he has acted as Equestrian Director for Cavalia’s productions, including the most recent Cavalia’s Odysseo.
Cavalia Presents Odysseo is taking place at the Bicentennial Park in Miami, FL, from February 29, 2012 until March 25, 2012. Odysseo is a journey into the imagination, a voyage through space and time, and an exploration of nature’s greatest wonders – deserts, waterfalls, canyons, glaciers and more. The spellbinding show is a renewed tribute to the relationship humans and horses have forged over thousands of years. With our faithful companions by our side, we have travelled to the four corners of the globe, built bridges between cultures and brought people from all over the planet closer together. Odysseo is a singular expression and celebration of this exceptionally moving journey.
“I had the opportunity to experience Cavalia when it was here a couple of years ago,” Phelps explained. “It was a fantastic show that was absolutely captivating for all. Cavalia has immaculate care and horsemanship that is used from the entire staff of Cavalia, and not to mention the remarkable acrobatics and gymnastics the actors accomplish. It is like Cirque du Soleil but for the horse lover, and even those who want simply to be mesmerized.”
The other guest of the week is Whitney Tower, a contributing editor for Town and Country magazine. Tower, originally from Old Westbury, Long Island, NY, was raised around horses and around the world of writing. “My father was senior editor for Sports Illustrated Horse Racing, so it came with the territory,” explained Tower.
Although he started off as an actor working in films like Grease and King Kong, Tower explained the workload and the change of career and venue. “The work just became too hard and I moved back to New York and was in public relations for 25 years.”
Tower is looking forward to being on Phelps’s radio show and is hoping to give listeners a new viewpoint on life. Overall, Tower wants to get his message out there about life and how his viewpoint from being a recovering drug addict can change people. Tower is trying to take the magazine in a different direction and believes that being on the show will give him a chance to get his word out.
“I’ve been given a monthly column where I tell a story about life and my view on it,” said Tower. “It’s funny how life is and I’m taking this opportunity to write a book. It’s about being a privileged kid with all these great friends and how life can turn around for you.”
