One of the most important & loved women in our world slid away to the other side this morning. More soon. We’re tied up crying a lot and drinking a little more. Oh, and for those of you in outer orbits, Inez was a longtime Reno centerpiece of her own society.
Ok, so a few have guessed our blonde hunk-a-burnin’-love, and one even guessed the leader of the Disco trio (Dave & Sugar!—lookitup!) but understandably no correct guesses on ‘curly’. So, he’s a radio veteran, and real Veteran, and not a stranger to the Jive airwaves. New guesses must contain the names of both schmoes.
Ok, so only one person has guessed only one of the 2 schmoes, so here’s some clues:
-in the pic above our man schmoe is also pictured with a somewhat popular trio back in the day, and,
-in the pic below, the guy with the blonde wig and chest toupeé and stoned look is now a somewhat well-known right-wing troubadour.
The first 3 Jivers that name these 2 schmoes get a free 3-song set at noon on a day of their choice! Send your entries to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org [Friends or family of the two, or either of the two, or anyone working for Kellogg’s/Quaker Oats is prohibited from participating.]
Just a few days ago wildfire swept right through the lower Willamette Valley and toasted several hundred lower income homes and trailer parks along a corridor around I-5 and OR99. Tragic. This shot is what’s left of JPR’s transmit facility. This is just baked metal boxes. The human toll is crushing, and only one little spot on a giant map of disasters. >Here’s some more sad poop on the disaster in Southern OR.
We’re a little late on reporting from the Gerlach trapline, but our favorite bar owner in the world died earlier in July. Here’s a story from the Reno paper from a few weeks back, and an interview with Bev from a few years back.
Our KLAP audience is one big sweet soul lighter now. We hope the best for her cats.
