LouisvilleKY’s THE WEEK: a Crash, the Speed, a Roasted DJ, Champs with Cocktails

My lowlight of the week was this — driving on Watterson Trail in stop-and-go traffic, a woman in an SUV slammed into my rear bumper. I was unhurt, but the damage will require a body shop stay for my car and, thus, no ridesharing earnings for a while. On the brighter side, it was a tremendous week — the first Cocktails with Champions at O’Shea’s Irish Pub was an astounding success, I got to see parts of the new Speed Museum and met Ghislain D’Humieres, and spent a fun hour with ARTxFM’s Marianne Zickuhr and Lauren Argo.  HEAR ALL THAT…

LouisvilleKY’s THE WEEK: All Night Long with Delbert, Chocolate Cocktails and a Sex Scandal Goes Away

I’m just hours away from my Delbert McClinton reunion in Frankfort, of all places, and I’m pretty excited about seeing Delbert at 75. I was introduced to “Giving it Up for our Love” on Natural 97 Radio in the Orange Palace at the Pike House in Bowling Green with Mark Hebert.

LouisvilleKY’s THE WEEK: Rusty’s Take, Podcast Excellence and Shiny New Things

It sure has been a good week for me — I started swimming at LA Fitness, the first exercise I’ve had in months, U of L got its biggest win of the year against UNC the night before UK suffered its most embarrassing loss, and I got treated to a free beer at World of Beer and lunch from Thorntons. The Rusty podcast includes a new friend and an old one. And we finalized plans for a couple of great future events. Details of these and other happenings: Tailspin Tales: On Rusty, I introduced you to Trevor Cravens, president of…
