Tom Russell called into KHUM this morning to talk about that one time he was a radio DJ in Gilroy, beverages made from the agave plant and his upcoming visit to play at The Old Steeple in Ferndale on April 26th. Tom sure knows how to stay busy and it seems there's no creative outlet he's left unexplored. You can check out his music (he's recorded over 35 studio albums), painting or writing on his website: tomrussell.com or better yet, go see him play at the Old Steeple this upcoming Wednesday!

This morning I once again spoke with Caltrans Spokesman Eli Rohl to get an update on the 101 slide north of Leggett. The good news is, no new slide action overnight, however, geologists are determining whether or not it is safe to begin clearing the norther part of the slide (this is the newest part of the slide). If so, contractors are expected to begin 24 hour work on it. However, the earliest the road will be open again is sometime next week. For now, Caltrans recommends taking 299 or 36 to the 5 to go around. Again, please do not take Bell Springs Road. It is not mean for high traffic and is for locals only.

The title is a flashback to this little ditty from 2007. Titled "John Craigie Live on KHUM 5-18-2007" that in-studio was John's first KHUM visit. Chris P who regularly fills in also played his first tune on KHUM. Check it out! You'll regret it if you don't.
Today John rolled by to play some tunes from his new album "No Rain, No Rose" and talk with Amy about parents, live and other fun things. He has a show tonight at The Old Steeple in Ferndale with Lyndsey Battle, Colin Trujillo and Cam Trujillo.
... and here's the Facebook Live

This morning I spoke with Eli Rohl of Caltrans for a second time. This time with a report of new slide action at the site of the 101 Leggett slide. Overnight a new slide on the norther part of the the Leggett event took place putting at least as much, if not more material on the road than the first slide. It also send material down into the river. This may push back any reopening of the 101 even further. We will update when we hear more.
