Speaking of awards, the Rhode Island Radio Hall of Fame welcomes its most recent inductees as we hit the streets (May 12) at the West Valley Inn in the "Doggy Style Capital of the Universe," West Warwick. Yet another Hall of Fame that yours truly will be inducted into only with a change in weather conditions on the shores of the River Styx. But you have no idea how much fun I've had these past decades in my mission to distort and corrupt both the print and broadcast mediums here in the Biggest Little.
. . . Saturday, May 21 is the date for the 4th Annual Urban Pond Procession from Masahapaug Pond (behind the Job Lot on Reservoir Avenue) to Roger Williams Park. The event, which begins at 10 am, is to encourage the protection of the Pawtuxet Watershed and to raise awareness about the history and health of local ecosystems in and around Providence's most beloved ponds. And thank you, Phil Edmonds, for reminding me of this glorious community gathering.
. . . RIP John Walker, singer and guitarist with the Walker Brothers. "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine (Anymore)" was beautiful pop music from the '60s. If you don't know this song, go to YouTube and give it a spin.
