Ashley Miller and Chuck Kaplan Stop at the Satellite

I tackle my Top Five news stories — the battle over gaming in Kentucky that illustrates why we can’t have nice things; a quick take on the Metro Council elections now that the candidate deadline has passed; Governor Beshear’s “mind-boggling” trip to see the President’s State of the Union address; the death of a local newspaper and my Super Bowl prediction.

Great Video – Last Letter Home with Bernie Lubbers/Hickory Vaught

This video, produced by Mark Cowherd, gives you a great feel for the Bernie Lubbers/Hickory Vaught show at the Haymarket Whiskey Bar, which I wrote about last week. Bernie and Hickory take you through the history of bourbon with story and song. This is “Last Letter Home” about a Civil War soldier fighting and dying for the Conferderate cause. I had a pretty good seat!


Bourbon + Bluegrass + History = Hit Show

There just may not be enough bourbon-themed tourist attractions in this town, so it was time for someone to create an entertaining Bluegrass music/Bourbon history show.

So says comedian Bernie Lubbers, the self-proclaimed Whiskey Professor, who along with mandolin-picker Hickory Vaught has created a 75-minute show touted as “an all-sensory historical live musical performance piece.”

“Take It From Tara!” – A Personal Dream Come True

How many of us wake up every day and can’t wait to jump out of bed and start our day earning a living and making a difference, not only in our own lives but  hopefully in the lives of others? I, for one, do NOW. I finally “got it”…I just had to follow my father’s excellent advice to find something I loved to do and figure out how to earn a living doing it! Years in the Louisville media working for various corporate entities made me aware of the challenges of starting a show of my own. Thanks to Crescent…
