NOT YET, PLEASE! Don't want to admit it's almost Labor Day. Haven't had my summer vacay yet. Oh well, the wheel just keeps on rollin'. Should be plenty of nice weather this week to get outside and enjoy. Be extra careful on the roads, though. A lot of tourists in town who don't know exactly where they're going. Seeing a lot of people taking turns from the wrong lane, cutting people off, etc, which can be tricky even when you know where you're going. Does it really matter if you get to the next traffic light 20 seconds ahead of me?
If you're looking for live music this week...there are a couple of big shows at the end of the week, but you'll have to do a road trip to get there...BLACK SABBATH Sat at the Gorge Amphitheater; and FOREIGNER Sun at the Tualip Amphitheater.
MUSICAL CHAIRS: IRIS is on vacation this week, so we're moving people around a bit. KYLE is in this morning and tomorrow. He'll be giving away tix to see REO & LOVERBOY at the Oregon State Fair. JEFF's back Wed-Fri for Junk Drawer duties.
Today and tomorrow JEFF is in for IRIS, doing MY THREE SONGS during the noon hour, then MARK will take the rest of the week. Both guys will give away a 4pk of tix to the 1st Annual Rennaisance Festival in Hillsboro, plus a 4pk of tix you can use any day to get into the Oregon State Fair if you're the right caller and know what the 3 songs have in common.
SHANNON will be in his usual slot all week and during Classic Rock Trivia at 3:45pm you can pick up some tix to TERRY FATOR's performance at the State Fair.
