The Janet Martin Band (Irish Festival 2011)

We made it through the road blocks at VCU right before they won to see Janet Martin for the first time. All I can say is WOW! I can remember hearing her in the Kitchen on Page’s show (probably have it on tape) and bought her “Cloud Cover” CD. I took over 400 pictures so alot more is pending edits.

A hard band to panorama but a worthy tribute to Page Wilson. Kevin and the rest of you on the radio tribute last night helped alot for those of us who will truly miss our Saturday evenings with out Page.  The main reason I came out on this cold spring day.

Below I have pushed the panos to the max. We really did enjoy this performance!

Our old friend Sue who owned FRECKLES would have really loved this band! Wonderful time and a big thanks to Karen Sokohl for telling me about the tribute show for Page Wilson this evening during his old time slot that her husband was part of producing.

In the Pines

Between 5:30 to 8:30 am I took pictures non-stop. The first thing I saw outside was the super moon going down, in the pines.

Super Something

I did see the moon rise while driving and it was surreal. By the time I had gotten to a clearing it was too late. Urban areas aren’t the best places to get that special horizon experience. After many proofs I ended up with this exotic moon guitar pick. Guess I’m still effected by our loss this week.

Muir Beach Overlook Mar 2011

I tell folks they can panorama anything, here’s one with 2 extra layers of one of our good friend Pete Cornell’s groups.

Message from Alexey Berlind: Hey cats, here are some fotos from the Muir Beach gig that a tourist took with my cell phone. I had no idea she took so many shots, and some of them are pretty good. Feel free to download and use these shots, or crops of just yourself in this fashionable milleu, if you like.

Out O’ The Blue (redux)

There were a many of saturday evenings I enjoyed out back beside the fire-pit listening to “Out O’ The Blue”. Page’s show should have gone national, it was that good! God Bless Page Wilson for all the years you shared your wonderful gift of music with your fans.

Page answered a letter I wrote him years ago and this logo was on the header. Wonder if he designed this?

Last Saturday evening we were having a dinner party for out of town guest and when I went to turn on the stereo for music it didn’t work. After locating a spare radio I tuned into 88.9 and we did enjoy Mountain Stage. My wife did say, I had wondered what happen to Page’s show but forgot  until in the background I heard  Mark Holmbergs report a couple of days later and was shocked. I really wish WCVE would rebroadcast his last show during this Super Moon but am prepared with forgotten tapes I have dug up. My wife mentions often when is my wall of Lps and cassettes going to the Salvation Army (not in my lifetime). I got to wonder about Page’s archive? I didn’t know Page well but we were the same age and lived through the analog to digital transformation. The curious thing about the new technology is they aren’t sure how long CD’s will hold their information but it’s a fact lp’s can last a long time and tape if you keep it wound up and away from magnets (speakers). I wrote something regarding radio last week before all these recent events hit the fan that I think is important and again we will miss our old friend that we welcomed into our home so many Saturday evenings on public broadcasting.

“I am really distressed and always mythed that stopping congressional funding for NPR is remotely considered. NPR is the only station I’ve really ever listened to besides indie radio. The fact we have a Party that promotes hate as its rally is sad also.

I usually refrain from politics here because I’m highly allergic to it. Congress and the rest operate pretty much the same as when in the 19th century handled Indian Affairs. The half-truths and nastiness of the campaigns reflect this. The threat of undermining our gateway to the arts, science, and history is a tragedy beyond belief. The networks have some great writers but are all controlled by money making formulas. Who would have believed watching autopsies every week would become Americas chief entertainment. If for some crazy reason our Public Broadcasting is damaged by shallow legislators , God help this countries intellect.”

I know I had a copy of one of the early Out O’ The Blue Revue newspapers but can’t find it?
