RADIO-RELATED STUFF

Picked up WSMB 1430 last night.

Wow, Tim Tron sure has come up with a lot more terms.

Glad Canada and Switzerland are back on shortwave.

Have tuned into "From the Isle of Music" on WBCQ 7490 a few times and enjoyed it.

THIS SUNDAY AFTERNOON, MAY 15, 'THE AMAZING JAM' 2-5 P.M. AT THE BLACK DOG IN STIRLING

Good songs and good music,  and good company to share them with!
That’s what you’ll find this  Sunday afternoon at the Black Dog in Stirling.
Yes! THIS Sunday afternoon! 
So come on out and join us  to share a few tunes at the Amazing Jam? Maybe some of your own, maybe a couple  from someone else....

Looking forward to see you  there.
*And    don’t forget to check the Facebook page ‘BV Amazing Music’ for postings    about more music and events in this area. There’s something happening    here....

This Sunday afternoon  at The Black  Dog in Stirling. We’ll be playing music there for about 3 hours. Welcomed by both staff and the patrons in the lounge and  restaurant, our music is appreciated. 
Once a month on Sunday afternoons. This Sunday afternoon (May  15th). Time is from 2 pm until 5.
The format is a ‘song circle’ with  the lead changing from person to person among the group. Everyone has the option  to offer a tune when their turn comes around, or pass to their neighbour if  they’d rather. Depending on the music, the mood, choice of instruments, etc.  some will choose to support whoever is leading a song, others may prefer to sit out and listen.   DSCF1663
We invite you to come out and join us, making music with old friends;  for sure, there’ll be some new faces too.

Remember....
“Bring your instruments, your voices and your music. It’s  all unplugged  and it’s all good! Guitar, bass,  harmonica, banjo,  mandolin, ukulele,  fiddle, accordion,  flute, celtic harp – the list goes  on.
“There may be only 4 or 5 of us or maybe a whole room full of  musicians. A place for ‘first-timers’ and experienced  players alike. A  good bunch of people playing all kinds of music together.  People in their teens all the way through  proto-geezers. Maybe even an incipient-geriat or two....
“The blues does not rule. Any acoustic music from punk to polka!”

Hope to see you Sunday afternoon in  Stirling.

Hello to all
Just a reminder that we have an event this Sunday. Looks like it will be wet and cool so we will be indoors. Look forward to seeing you there. Bring a friend or neighbour out for a great afternoon of music.

CHICK MAGNET

This was an absolutely terrible movie with a choppy plot. Screw these characters and all their worthless values, as well as the overgrown fratboy man-child hook-up culture this movie represents.

MY BLUEBERRY NIGHTS

In adition to the far-fetched plot and poor acting, I note the following about this movie:

- Jeremy can remember the story behind every set of keys in the jar?;
- Jeremy calls every Memphis Bar and Grill: I doubt there are 399 establishments by that name in Memphis;
-Sue Lin calls Memphis "God-forsaken": from everything I've heard about it, Memphis isn't a town that could be described that way;
-Sue Lin drinks straight vodka: she is officially braver than I am;
- Elizabeth eats steak, home fries and mashed potatoes in the same meal: I'd like to see her arteries, and her teeth after all that blueberry pie, for that matter.

MUSIC CIRCLE ARTS CENTRE MADOC

Hello to All
Hope you are enjoying this great weather. It has been cool but at least the sun shines. I have the Art Centre Hastings booked for a music circle event on Thursday, May 5th. I will have the doors open at 11am, with the music starting at 11:30 and running till about 3:30. As usual please bring your own instrument, music stand and your lunch. I will have free coffee available. The last few events have been fun. I hope to continue this event several times a month during the summer with no charge for attendance. This is a great venue to try new tunes and polish up our skills. This event is for beginners thru to professional players. A great way to learn from each other. Bring a friend along. Hope to see you there!
Sincerely
Cliff Andrews

CLASS REUNION

From a time when comedies were actually funny, this movie delivers laughs from start to finish. Maybe slightly yet funny in a time of a couple mass shootings a day, but surprisingly not that much less.
