In Memory...

I just had to do something, as I was in shock, once again to lose another....   So, I put together a show in memory and tribute to a few treasured souls that cancer has taken away from us...    They will be missed greatly and may their music live on, be share and always stand the test of time as they did......

Was in Yosemite when I got the message of Jimmy's passing.  It shook us to the core....  so sudden, as it always is....   I did put a post out on Facebook written by Stephanie Roth who contributed a heartfelt article to Huffpost and most recently found a real good link at Jimmy's Label Music Road Records (https://www.facebook.com/MusicRoadRecords/timeline)...    we will miss you brother....

I was playing a Greg Trooper song with and friend and we were missing a hidden chord somewhere, so i mentioned that Greg had been sick and that i hadn't heard in a while from him, so grabbing my phone to find the elusive chord, i was informed of his passing.   Stunned and shaken, I just couldn't go on playing, though I know Greg would havegiven me hell about that...  just the way he was...    a big ass smile, laugh, loving living and sharing his songs....   which I most certainly will....   So in memory and respect "this I'll do"....

Almost Strawberry Time..

The Strawberry Folks are extremely supportive of Public and Community Radio and have truly helped the "Americana" format along with the musicians and artists associated.   And, it is my pleasure to roll out the carpet on the Juke Joint to celebrate, honor and pay tribute to such endeavors...   So if you get a chance tune in on Saturdays @ 3pm PST at www.kunr.org or through TuneInRadio app or in the listening area of Northern Nevada and Northeastern California on KUNR FM Reno or KNCC FM Elko....    and we'll keep the music playin' for ya....
