Check It Out

If you roll over the above “Check It Out” and click, you’ll be taking to the page entry made after the 20th Anniversary of the Helicopter Crash that claimed the live of Rock Impresario, Bill Graham.  It’s not about that day, but the 10th Anniversary of KSJO San Jose, held at Winterland in San Francisco, May 19th, 1978.  It was a concert experience like no other, and started the musical friendship of Sammy Hagar and Neal Schon by the act of putting together a jam at the end of the show.  It was posted originally before the Sunday that was the last full, live, five hour Lobster’s Sunday Brunch during the 2011 NFL Season due to the Oakland Raiders broadcast preemptions for The Raiders games that season.  When Sonoma Media Group replace Maverick Media as the owners of The River, the management moved The Raiders to sister station KSRO AM.  A much better place for football to be heard.

Lobster’s Sunday Brunch at B.R. Cohn from July 3rd

Saturday, July 23rd, 2011

The 3rd Annual Charity Car Classic was held on July 3rd at the B.R. Cohn Winery in Glen Ellen.  Our live broadcast was sponsored by Santa Rosa Auto Body.  We had a great time.  Wine, Music, Food and Fun on a sun-filled day.  Almost 100 Classic Cars were on display in this benefit exhibit for the Redwood Empire Food Bank.  The Classic Car Sundays will continue on the first Sunday of the month through October, and we have a Weber Gas Grill you can enter to win, courtesy of our program’s co-sponsor, Friedman’s Home Improvement.  Check out the brief (under 5 minutes) video.

It’s been quite an adventure…and over 18,000 miles in weekly round trips from San Francisco to Santa Rosa.  May 1st, we broadcast live from the B.R. Cohn Winery and Olive Oil Company in Glen Ellen, the presenting sponsor since show #1 on May 19th, 2008.  Friedman’s Home Improvement joined as co-sponsor to begin our second year.   A big THANK YOU to these family owned and operated, local businesses for their advertising support.  Please support our advertisers in return.  Their websites can be visited by clicking the logos to the right.

With gratitude to all listeners of The River, those tuned in to 97.7 FM in and around Santa Rosa (including those who catch the signal in surprising places from Clear Lake to Orinda to the San Mateo coast) and everywhere else on the Internet, Lobster’s Sunday Brunch is dedicated to having fun with music, and celebrating the San Francisco Bay Area Music scene.

Appreciate being included in Sam Whiting’s “Catching Up” column recently.  The interview that appeared on the front page of the Arts and Entertainment (Datebook) section in the San Francisco Chronicle, and the heart-warming comments from readers, can be viewed at this link to SF Gate

YOU make it all worthwhile.
