Dodging the Roadkill: My Motorcycle, My Music, My Memories

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I’ve posted many articles about how much I LOVE to ride alone.  I’m not anti-social, and I love riding with my “buds” but I ABSOLUTELY love the solitude of just me and the open road.

And deep down inside, so do you.

I’m an early morning rider.  I will get up and hit my favorite coffee shop, then take off for a couple of hours.  I’m also a HUGE music lover.  Forty years on the radio will do that to you.  I have a thumb drive filled with the music of my life.

I was living in Europe as a young man when the Beatles and the great British Invasion landed, so, my music is VERY important to me. Now my motorcycle and my music are helping me relive my life, one song at a time.

Clarksville’s Rivers and Spires Festival announces Headliners for 2017

 

Clarksville Rivers and Spires FestivalClarksville, TN –The Rivers and Spires Festival announces its headline entertainment for the 2017 festival, April 20th-22nd in downtown Clarksville.

Award-winning country duo Montgomery Gentry will perform on the Public Square Stage on Saturday, April 22nd at 8:30pm.

From “Hillbilly Shoes” to “Headlights,” Montgomery Gentry has become one of the most identifiable duos in the history of country music—as much for their outlaw-meets-gentleman sensibilities, their yin and yang personalities and their intensely energetic live performances as that balance of voices that gives their brand of country an edge or their version of Southern rock a softer place to fall.

Austin Peay State University Choral Concert to recreate “The Wizard of Oz” October 21st

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – In L. Frank Baum’s hometown of Chittenango, New York, the brick sidewalks are painted yellow and the shops have names like “Auntie Em’s Place” and the “Emerald City Grill.”

This little village doesn’t really resemble the magical Oz, but it is part of the ongoing reinterpretation of Baum’s famous children’s story, “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.”

That famous work has been re-imagined numerous times over the years, with the famous 1939 musical, “The Wizard of Oz,” the 1978 Michael Jackson fantasy, “The Wiz,” and Gregory Maguire’s bestselling book, later made into a hit Broadway musical, “Wicked.”
