Indie Amos.....our own Ice Cream aficionado had a booth out there today where our friend Kim Mayhew was serving up his Joshua Treets.....Salted Caramel people.....Yummy! Teddy Quinn, and Michael Roark and Radio Free Joshua Tree DJ Molly Katelbach were out providing live streaming coverage of today's music on their online radio show www.RadioFreeJT.com. Bobby Nichols spoke to listeners from the event and they played his song, Chicken Bone off of his Jumolhari CD between sets. THERE'S BOB PRODUCTIONS was out shooting video of today's festivities. It was so great to see all of the various music media folks out there supporting the artists and this community event which donated money from raffle tickets and other sales to the kill free animal shelter in Joshua Tree as well as the Hospice of Morongo Basin.
I would like to end this post with a mention of the kind and important people at The Hospice of The Morongo Basin, who also had a booth out there today. I would also like to pay tribute to my Grandma Eva who passed away at 3:30 AM today. She lived in Jackson, CA. She died a slow and painful death....at home....only Hospice to help her and my grandfather (age 89) through it all. Here at home, Morongo Basin Hospice, who helps the grandparents of many, die with dignity all the time, has suffered major financial cutbacks. They really need all of us to remember how important they are before we need them someday. I urge you to go to their website and donate today..... www.hospiceofmorongobasin.org
