Bob Dorr And The Blue Band Update


In case you didn't check in with the chat page in the last 36 hours: Apparently Elvis is wintering in Paraguay and after hearing about our dastardly winter, he decided not to return to do the IPTV Festival Special originally scheduled for Wednesday night. (when you're The King, you can do stuff like that) This means that my co-hosting of the music programming this week will start on Thursday night, 6:30p, for The Grand Ole Opry's Vintage Classics. I hope Minnie Pearl says HOWWDEEE! (she's so hip-hop with that price tag on her hat). More info or make a pledge-www.iptv.org...

Speaking of that dastardly winter, this Saturday is the moment we've all been waiting for: THE FIRST OUTDOOR DATE OF THE YEAR! We'll be at The Twisted Parrot's St. Patrick's Day Celebration-OUTSIDE!! (in a heated tent), 7:00-11:00 p.m., 6500 Hickman Rd., Windsor Heights, IA (suburban Des Moines) www.thetwistedparrot.com. "Uncle" Al Naylor is scheduled to be in the horn section with Heath! Wear layers of green...

Next Friday, Mar. 21, we've been invited to be part of the celebration of Iowa Public Radio's new frequencies in south central Iowa. One of the frequencies (89.1) will be carrying my weekend shows, so I'm looking forward to meeting new and long-time IPR listeners (Fairfield and Oskaloosa will now have a WAY better signal) The frequency will be launched in the morning of Mar. 21 with the celebration (family friendly) taking place at the new Bridge View Events Center in Ottumwa starting at 5:30p. The Blue Band plays 7-9pm. The event is free and open to the public. "Uncle " Al has promised to be part of the the horn section again that night...

We seem to continue to add a few dates to the summer schedule each week, but are still struggling to find work for April and May. Keep us in mind for that deck party at your mansion with the postcard view...

Surfing thru the TV channels after midnight, I saw the rerun of last week's Johnny Cash special that I got to co-host on IPTV. It's just plain weird seeing yourself on television, isn't it? You're so used to seeing the reverse image that you get from the mirror reflection, that seeing yourself, like others see you, is completely reverse of what YOU think you look like! And my hair is WAY greyer than I thought...

Don't ya just love it when sanctimonious people get exposed (!) for what they really are? Elliot Spitzer joins the list. I wonder what ya get for $4300...?!...

I think I'll leave it right there...

See ya on the Blue Highway, perhaps Governor Spitzer should have just rubbed his zydeco tie, bring green CAKE to the outdoor gig on Saturday and remember, we love you! Bob Dorr & The Blue Band
