Simple music, simple post

Not a lot happening on the show tonight – except for the news that KWMR has a new translator that fills in a big area of the San Geronimo Valley that, due to the topography, was unable to receive the 90.5 signal from the top of Mt. Vision.  Now, Valley residents can tune in to 92.3 Lagunitas.  There’s a translator on the top of Mt. Barnabe that receives the 90.5 signal from Mt. Vision and retransmits it on 92.3 FM.  The translator’s power is a whole 10 watts, but it gets the job done in the Valley and in areas of Inverness Part that didn’t receive 90.5 very well due to being in the shadow of Mt. Vision.  Welcome to the KWMR fold!

Billy Mize move update

Some good could be said about social media.  Without it, we might not have heard about the movie “Billy Mize & The Bakersfield Sound.”  And we certainly wouldn’t have heard this week that the film is finished and slated to be premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 14.  And we absolutely wouldn’t have been able to arrange to speak with the film maker Joe Saunders about his movie about his grandfather, Billy Mize.  Big thanks to Joe for taking time out east coast time to speak with us.  Congratulations on the completion of the film which took seven years.

Not only was Billy Mize a songwriter and singer, but he made the pedal steel sing.
