So Country with Dennis Walker
In less than two years, South Okanagan Country Internet Radio is proving to be a serious competitor in the Okanagan radio market. The 22-year employee of CIGV Giant FM Penticton, who was let go with the rest of the air staff in a corporate buyout, is moving forward very quickly.
Less than five weeks after loosing his job, Dennis Walker was up and running with socountry.ca Internet radio, broadcasting out of his kitchen. Penticton city councilors and community leaders kept the momentum building by doing interviews on Dennis’s front porch and in his kitchen. Then Manuel Borba from the Penticton Pinnacles FC soccer club came to Dennis and said "We've got a home for you in the Adidas Sportsplex." Broadcasting from the lobby in a glass-surrounded studio, guests enjoy the freedom to talk about what's happening in the Okanagan Similkameen.No comments
The 22nd Annual Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival Adds Black Joe Lewis to Line-Up
As an electrifying 2014 line-up continues to develop, Roots & Blues adds Black Joe Lewis to the mix. Joe Lewis hails from Austin, TX – the collision center where Southern soul meets mid western blues and vagabond punk. Unable to keep away from the infectious music scene Austin is infamous for, Joe Lewis soaked it all in and soon found himself purchasing his first guitar while working in a pawnshop. The rest is history.No comments
