NEWS NOTES and THOUGHTS
I lost a very good friend this past week; someone who was insurmountably influential in me building my business as a stage manager and main stage/event emcee.
Roger Armstrong was the executive director of CHUN (Capitol Hill United Neighborhoods). Their main annual fundraising event was the CHUN People’s Fair, held the first weekend of June.
Roger, like other friends (and my late wife) lost his battle with cancer. RIP my friend – I WILL always remember our friendship. I’ve been looking at the picture of us on the wall outside my office for years – and it’s not coming down.
The PF is no longer produced by CHUN, but the spirit remains the same. I intend to honor my friend at the event in June 2018.
My girlfriend and I took a drive to Colorado Springs on Sunday, to visit Garden of the Gods on what might be the last best Sunday to do so. Hunger drove me to go into downtown CS to visit the new Oskar Blues location there.
Yes, they will have live music – no, it will not be every weekend. The “music room” is set apart from the main restaurant in the “basement,” and is fashioned after a speakeasy. The apparent intent, in talking with the GM, is that they’ll do music every once in awhile. That, of course, may change.
The Oskar Blues Brewery 15th ANNIVERSARY party set for Nov 18th at the Oak Room in the Brewery in Longmong is SOLD OUT!
The COLORADO PLAYLIST has been added to rotation at KHEN in Salida — will air Sat 5-6PM and Tues 8-9PM.
VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK
Chris Daniels’ & the Kings latest is Blues with Horns, Vol 1. It’s up for Grammy consideration, and is the first #1 charting record (Roots Music Report) in the band’s 30 year history.
