This week found us back at 3rd Bedroom Studios with Jimmy Bell at the controls and Sacramento Renaissance Man Tim Foster in the guest chair. From Tim, we learn about life after Midtown Monthly, more about the amazing Sacramento Living Library series, and dive into the Sacramento music scene. Tim is a veteran musician and journalist from Sacramento and shares a lot of unique insights.
We also get into some City Council races, most notably District 8, where incumbent Bonnie Pannell is facing challenger and Kevin Johnson ally (at least that what the signs say), Betty Williams. Look for more in-depth City Council race coverage in an upcoming episode.
Finally, in addition to somehow managing to again talk about the dead dead dead arena, we muse about our seemingly shutter-happy Mayor, and heap praise on a well deserved, though terribly modest, Cosmo Garvin for the recent honors bestowed on him by the California Newspaper Publishers Association.
We hope you enjoy the show. Please don’t hesitate to let us know if there is a particular subject or guest you would like us to feature in the future. And your comments are always welcome.
