Evening Under the Stars, a fund raiser for the AIDS Assistance Program features the B52s.
That's the great thing about Palm Springs is all the retro acts end up performing here at one time or another. In my past newspaper career, I had the opportunity to interview Meatloaf, Vicki Carr and Peter Noone (Herman's Hermits). No one under 45 probably has heard of any of these people.
Ouch! Tickets to this event are $395. Sure, it benefits of good cause, but that's an awful lot of money for most people. That's the equivalent to the pay for writing 30 ehow articles. You gotta just love this economy!

In 1938 Palm Springs city leaders wanted landowner George Welwood Murray to donate his land at Tahquitz and Palm Canyon to the city so that a new library could be built at the site. In order for Murray to donate the land he had asked that the city would run the library and that it be a memorial to his father.
Today the library is closed for renovation, and , like the vacant Weisman property caddy-corner to it, one never knows if it really will open again.

The set of the Joey English Show. Image was taken just before I taped the show, which had another author talking about his book.
Steven Biller, editor-in-chief of Palm Springs Life, is wearing the white shirt in the image.
He was co-hosting the show.
I explained my new book New Image Frontiers--Defining the Future of Photography. I also gave information about cloud computing, Google presentations and the Wonder Camera (although it didn't say it by name).
The show airs on Saturday, April 16th on KNEWS 94.3 FM.
