SUPPORT THE TROOPS OPEN MIC AND LIONS CLUB FAMILY DAY THIS SUNDAY AFTERNOON AT THE ARTS CENTRE IN MADOC

Hello To Everyone
Hope you have been enjoying this warm spell. Too bad we cant save any for January and February!
Just a reminder that this coming Sunday is the Support The Troops Open Mic. (see attached poster) We will be sharing the park with the Lions Club Family Day and a large Family Reunion. Last year we had a great crowd for this event. If you have any young people visiting or neighbours with youngsters bring them along. There will be games for all ages prizes and free hot dogs for Participants and of course the water park and playground. Great way to spend Summer Day in a great park setting. Don't forget to bring your instrument and singing voice!

RADIO-RELATED STUFF

CHIN has really gone downhill.

Just picked up a RTTY signal while listening to CJMR 1320 on my radio/record player combo.

I love This Is Criminal, The Memory Palace and Nocturne.http://www.nocturnepodcast.org

RADIO-RELATED STUFF

Happy retirement, Garrison Keilor.

Hope KJES'S new owner can make it everything he wants it to be.

Listened to the last two innings of the Buffalo Bysons game tonight. It was perfect radio for a summer Saturday evening.

MEDIA-RELATED STUFF

Glad Mighty John Marshall has his own radio feature now.

Picked up WHHQ the other night.

Picked up WNEC the other night.

That Intact Insurance ad is stupid.

Have been picking up WDCD Albany the last several nights.

That Megamix program on that Spanish shortwave station is pretty cool.

Glad Michael Rivero is back on RBN.

Listen to B95 from Auckland, New Zealand, the coolest, edgiest radio station I have run across in a long time.

CKOL has definitely gotten a lot better. The other night, they were playing The Velvet Underground.

I love the Indian programming (especially of course the musical aspect) that replaced China Radio International on CHIN 1540.

Glad WBCQ has so many new shows.

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 (June  19th). 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!”

(Baritone sax and tuba set up in the  parking lot....)
Hope to see you Sunday afternoon in  Stirling.
