This morning I spoke with Luke Sikora who is heading off to the Manhattan School of Music next month to pursue his Opera Career. Although Luke has received a scholarship, he will still be about $15,000 short in covering his expenses. So this Saturday he and a full lineup of local singing superstars will be putting on a concert at the Universalist Fellowship out in Bayside. Doors open at 6:30pm the show begins at 7:30pm. Sikora has been in numerous shows in local theater, most recently in Les Miserables at the North Coast Repertory Theater. Aside from the music, local businesses have donated many items for a silent auction that will also take place at the event.

Jared Huffman, our representative in DC, was in Humboldt yesterday and was kind enough to stop by the KHUM studios to submit to another gruelling grilling from the Traskmaster.
Listen to interview today on KHUM at high noon, or below.

This morning Emily and I spoke with Aaron Antrim of Trillium Solutions. Aaron used to live in Humboldt County, attended HSU and helped found Greenwheels. Aaron was instrumental in creating the JackPass program which allows HSU students to travel on HTA buses for free (paid for through a portion of student fees). Now Aaron runs Trillium Transit Solutions which works with transit agencies across the country and the world to make public transportation more efficient and easier for all people to use in both rural and urban areas.

Once again, KHUM will provide the musical soundtrack for your 4th of July fireworks starting at 10pm Friday night, right after the South Side. Whichever fireworks display you are watching, bring KHUM along for fireworks music without the rules. No John Philip Sousa marches here, you'll hear Jimi Hendrix, Arlo Guthrie, Tracy Chapman, Ray Charles, Richie Havens and the like. So when heading out for the fireworks, remember the cooler and a radio tuned to KHUM!

This morning I spoke with Erik Standifird and Sasha Shay who are starring in the upcoming musical comedy "The Wedding Singer" July 25th through August 17th at the Ferndale Repertory Theater. Originally a film starting Adam Sandler, this sage version has been turned into a musical with lots of good 80s fun.
