for the past couple weeks I was wondering what was up with Gallery
Okay, granted, there's always something wrong with their website. --- Pages won't load, there's nothing in the Press and Links sections, no
one responds to messages, etc. But the past couple weeks they
didn't even update their info for May. Until today, which is
nice to find out, but is still kind of annoying that the general
public had to wait until two days before the Stroll to get
info. I realize a good majority of the project is on a
volunteer basis, but do they really only have one person running
their website? An open plea, please, find someone to run it
more than once every two weeks. In any case, their info is
updated, so our calendar listing is too. I'm aiming to cover at
least one thing on the Stroll this Friday, but I may be covering
two. We'll see what happens.
More internal news, recently I've been helping book some of the musical guests that come play for our newscasts on Saturday mornings. Giving our show more of a local music vibe while giving the state a taste of the underground. It's cool being able to bring that to at least one of our shows. In the past we've had guests like Emme Packer, Wendy Ohlwiler and Johan The Angel. We've got new musical guests over the next couple weeks. First up on May 17th we bring you the sugary-sweet sounds of The Mollies, and then on May 24th we bring in the hip-hop jazz stylings of Scenic Byway (as seen above). As soon as planning gets finished, I'll let you know who's coming around in June. But I got a good idea of who we'll be bringing by...
Coming up this week I'll have an interview with Leia Bell as she opens up her new store "Signed & Numbered", where you can get such wonderful posters like this rare Decemberists flyer from one of their first tours. Plus whatever I do from Gallery Stroll down the road. For you film makers out there, Tower Theater is doing it's 6th Open Mic Night tonight. Plus keep on listening to UtahFM as I have been off and on this week, hearing some old favorites from that other community station, and new voices that look to be keeping the station original. As for me, it's all up in the air and unpredictable, as usual. More good things are on the way.
