On Friday, I'll be pinch-hitting for Alan Rhodes at a live taping of the Chuckanut Radio Hour at Bellingham's Leopold Ballroom. Northwest treasure Ivan Doig is the featured author and for those unfamiliar with the program, it's kind of like B'ham's own "Prairie Home Companion." There's live music (the Quickdraw Stringband), a Poet's Corner (Emily Warn), another episode of the Bellingham Bean, and yours truly reading a humorous (let's hope) essay. It's a terrific show; I did it once before in April and had a great time.
Tickets are $7.50 and available at Village Books and at the door, I believe. Show starts at 6:30. (Or 7, I better find out.) For information, go here: www.thechuckanutradiohour.com
