So Local Pasco February 5th, 2016. So Local Pasco TV, Mailbag, Teacher of the Year Edition

A mixed bag full of good stuff, today…Including an update on how to catch So Local Pasco TV, today, on the internet!  We also read some viewer letters, it’s good to be getting those.  I feel like I constantly need to say, DON’T BE SHY!  Drop me a line! The studio phone is my ACTUAL phone, and I will usually call right back if you leave a voice mail.  In fact, it IS a smart phone, so you can message me at that number (727)859-8537.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Very excited (and scared) about the TV show!  It premieres TODAY at 3:30pm.  LOTS of requests for information on how to watch:

Three ways, actually!

  1. Scroll up to the top, and look for a link (DEAD CENTER) that says “SO LOCAL PASCO TV LIVE STREAM” Click it.  If all goes according to plan, close to 3pm, you will find a “Watch Live” link, which should connect you to the stream.
  2.  Failing that, go to We Beam TV by clicking the green text, and click the “Watch Live” button there.
  3. If you can’t watch live, that’s okay…Soon after the show wraps, we will be posting links to watch it on Youtube…Watch this space (and Facebook, and Twitter) for information to get you connected with the content.

That’s IT!  Now, just to make sure you don’t think I am fooling around, here are stills from the opening credit roll, and a shot of the temporary set we will be using:

Screen cap from the show opening...The dots are animated 'fireflies', you'll see them when we run the show!

This is the set we will be using for now...We have a REALLY COOL set being designed for us, but honestly, this looks better than MY studio, at home!

I want to make sure and say a special thanks to Jeremiah Halverson and The Bullfrogs…They allowed Josh Vozda, the video editor from our show, to shoot some great action footage, on Tuesday night!  Thanks especially to Dean Smith…Dean is the drummer for the Bullfrogs, but ended up NOT in the video, because it’s an open mic night, and another dude was up there!  Thanks, Dean, for your understanding!

Dean, the drummer for The Bullfrogs, gettin' it done!

I also want to thank Polly and Fred from The HandleBar for letting us shoot the show opening there!  It is a FINE stage…Great lights, great bar, nice crowd.  They are making a real showplace, right here in Hudson.  Get out and support their efforts!

Doc Cole and Common Ground, Big Ragoo and Tina, food, drink specials, PRIZES for ten categories of bikes!  Get out there!!

Fred and Polly have THREE music acts this weekend…Including these great afternoon gigs!  Still home in time for dinner, or even to catch a LATER band elsewhere!

Sunday, we meet at The HandleBar for breakfast at 9:30, then we ride out to Rockin Horse Farm/Horse Connections for a tour, and on to The Hideaway for a HUGE fundraising effort in support of Horse Connections’ equine therapy work with special needs kids and adults!

Tina and all her friends have worked SO hard to make this happen...Making baskets for raffle prizes, organizing...Get out there and show them what we do!

One last thing, our respect and thoughts are with friends of Joyce Mersman, and we wish them a safe ride out in her memory, on Saturday.
