I have had the opportunity to witness and document on many occasions the results of the creative energy that flows through the Carolinas. Many creative gifts to the world come from people who were born in the Carolinas and some from people who move to the Carolinas.
It was a nice week. Spring was showing off her fresh colors and the pollen count was high, but then it rained, and the wind blew much of the beautiful misery away. Saturday was stable enough for the Copper Barrel Distillery annual event, Shinetopia — an outdoor benefit concert, cook-off and …
Not so long ago, we were in production at the Don Gibson Theatre in Shelby, North Carolina for one of our Carolina Theater Trail broadcast segments. The general idea of these segments is to highlight theaters in the Carolinas that have historical significance and are producing shows regularly.
In 1996, John Travolta portrayed the Archangel Michael, and I remember the laughter and heartfelt moments at the theater. I am among those who have enjoyed many viewings over the years.
Katie, who works at the post office, asked what I was working on this week.
It was a good week to talk with storytellers. We had an on-camera visit with Francene Marie Morris, better known as Francene Marie on the Beasley Broadcasting (formerly CBS Radio) stations in the Charlotte Region. With 23 years in the broadcast industry, she has clearly established herself a…
The past few weeks have been exciting and entertaining. The Carolinas are well known for seasonal abnormalities. It’s not odd to have near record-breaking cold weather for a few days and then spring-like weather — just enough to tease our spring flowering plant life and then, in the twinklin…
The creative energy that flows through the Carolinas is abundant and inspiring.
As we celebrate the new year with great hope for a respectable 2019, it is a practical tradition to reflect on the past and make a few plans for a better tomorrow.
Are you a nocturnal Christmas parade attendee or do you prefer that your annual display of moving holiday merriment be lit by ordinary solar illumination? Pardon me, I might have had too much hot chocolate.
The idea of supporting small local business owners during our largest gift-giving season is an honorable notion. With busy schedules and the desire driven by highly effective advertising, it’s not always easy to balance the budget and time requirements needed to shop local. What’s a person t…
I don’t know about you, but I grew up with a great fondness for the holidays and Christmas season. If you have followed our annual Christmas specials on TV and the weekly column during the end of the year, there is no doubt that I did not grow out of it.
Every year around Veterans Day, the sugar maple tree appears to drop most of its leaves over a very short period. It seems like one day the trees are full of golden hues and then, all the sudden, the ground is covered with one of nature’s perfectly colored carpets.
Love stories are big business. Many have made a good living on the emotional wings of passion-driven stories often filled with sordid affairs and moderately complex plots.
When traveling, I find adventures far more exciting if you are open to new experiences. I have some friends who are satisfied with going to the same place all the time. The same hotels, the restaurants and the same shows. Year after year the same. No need for change. I have come to understan…
I remember visiting the Brushy Mountain Apple Festival many years ago when during the early hours of the festival it was not odd to see lines of people waiting for a cup of hot chocolate or hot spiced apple cider. The morning was chilly, and the warm beverages were not only tasty but provide…
I have many remarkable distant and recent memories of apples.
Not so long ago, I had a wonderful jazz encounter with The Jazz Room at the Stage Door Theater in Charlotte. The Jazz Room convenes monthly and is a production of Jazz Arts Initiative.
