2015 LouisvilleKY Highlights with Photos from Bill Brymer

One of the best things that happened for and the Rusty Satellite Show in 2015 was the start of a partnership with local photographer Bill Brymer. We had quite an adventure, visiting with important people all over town. Bill does great work – as you can see – and does freelance work for many local clients, including Actors Threatre and General Electric. Fortunately for us, he does some great work for us. Here’s to many more great pics in 2016

Dear Santa — please send me those Springsteen tickets and wins for the Cards in Lexington tomorrow and in Nashville against Texas A&M in the Music City Bowl. 2015’s Winners. It’s been a great year for me, and for a lot of Rusty Satellite Show guests, who I’ll be mentioning in bold from here on. First off, this is the first Christmas I won’t be seeing my son Nick Redding, who is pursuing his passion in theatre school in Italy. Today he told me he’d gotten great grades in subjects that include “aesthetics” “Italian” and “Movement.” He said he…

LouisvilleKY’s THE WEEK: Ankles Away, Lincoln Crossing, Cards, Cats, Tops and Teddy

I’m still not getting out much after ankle surgery, but this week I took advantage of a doctor’s appointment to interview my doctor. Dr. George Quill is certainly “one of the most interesting people in the ‘Ville” based on his expertise on feet and the wonderful work he does for charities. Check it out on Rusty. Also this week: Lincoln Bridge Walk: I can’t believe the new downtown bridge is opening up Monday morning. You can go and walk on it Saturday morning under sunny skies. A Championship To Be Decided in the Bluegrass: On Saturday, Western Kentucky hosts Southern…

Football’s Dust Settles in Louisville for WKU, Louisville Cards and UK

Maybe this is the year I should have started betting on football. That was a near-perfect football weekend. First, I went to Bowling Green and saw one of the country’s best offenses demolish a 9-2 Marshall team that came in expecting to be competitive. The final was 49-28, but it could have been a lot more if not for a few Topper miscues and Jeff Brohm’s decision to take his foot off the gas in the 4th quarter. Western, 8-0 in Conference USA, earned the right to host Southern Miss (yes, Card fans, THAT Southern Miss) in the league title…

Cupcakes Continue for Louisville with 85-41 Win at Yum! Center

Win number 4 for the Louisville Cardinals, over outmanned St. Francis Brooklyn, was an 85-41 pummeling at the Yum! Center. The Cards’ leading scorer was Damion Lee with 25 points.

Samford, Hartford, North Florida and now St. Francis haven’t really challenged the Cards, but the heavy lifting is coming. The Cards play St. Louis in New York Saturday night before their…


Bats’ Go Back to Blue, and Red for Louisville KY AAA Team

Louisville KY’s Bats Unveil New Look I’m hearing mixed reviews on the new look of the Louisville Bats, as the new uniforms and logos were unveiled today at Slugger Field. On one hand, the color change to red and blue is welcome and more in line with our city’s baseball tradition. But that Bat is ugly. Maybe the team just needs to sell more merchandise. Here’s the official release. LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The Louisville Bats unveiled new logos and uniforms to be used for the 2016 season and beyond Monday afternoon at Louisville Slugger Field. Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer and Bats majority…
