Help these wonderful Tucson artists get Off-Broadway!!!
We take a little road trip down to the wonderful Town of Bisbee and chat with some of the folks who make it a great place to live, work and play!
Renee Harper fills in for Jeff and does a great job ~ thinking of a host change ~ helping out with the Grand Ol’ Program. She is the Ghost Host of the Old Bisbee Ghost Tour, as well as the Creative Executive Officer of Sweet Midnight and the Mistress of the Macabre for The Bisbee Mini Museum of the Bizarre.
We sit down with Kathy Snowden from Finders Keepers Antiques & Collectibles and talk about all the fun events coming up for Halloween, which is apparently a HUGE event for the town.
We also talk with Mayor Adriana Zavala-Badal and Sloan Boucherver about the Inaugural Bisbee Film Festival. Sloan is the proprietor of the Bisbee Royal Micro-Cinema and a major sponsor of the big festival.
A major thank you to Cristina Plascencia from Destination Bisbee for coordinating our trip!!!
Fred and Jeff fill the studio with monsters and musician this week!
First, Lindsay Shekleton and Kyle Johnson from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation talk about the upcoming Monster Mash and 5K Dash being held on October 26th. As a side note, the Brothers Ronstadt will MC the event, much to the chagrin of all the participants. Check out the list of all the wonderful event sponsors: Golden Eagle Distributors, Gentle Ben’s, Desert Diamond, The University of Arizona Medical Center, The Gaslight Costume Shop, Playformance, BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse, SATYR Entertainment and GEICO!
Then Yvonne Ervin, Executive Director of the Innagural Tucson Jazz Festival, is in studio with the Tony Frank Trio. She talks about the huge festival being held in early 2015, all the scheduled artists and how it’s time to sign up to help make this a huge success. We also get to hear the Tony Frank Trio tear into a few classics!
Here’s a little extra audio from our trip to Bisbee ~ hanging out with Johnny Capers and Kristy Love at Johnny Caper’s House of Jazz!
