Ben Power from Austrailia

Ben and Kami

BEN POWER is from AUSTRAILIA.

Ben sets the record straight on the “gecko” that we see on TV. 

Most of Australia is populated around the edges near the coast as the center is mostly arid, desert and scrublands.

There are large cattle ranches in Australia and they are so large they manage them by helicopters instead of horses like United States.

There are different accents in Australia between the north and the south.

Kangaroos are everywhere like deer here in United states. Kangaroos are good eating.

Australia has Christmas in the middle of summer as December is summer in Australia.

Ben also tells about Singapore.

Remember when you say good bye to an Australian you say “hooroo”.

Teea Goans

TEEA GOANS – Country Music Star of  Grand Old Opry – Larry’s Country Diner – Country Family Reunion – RFD-TV

EPSON MFP imageTeea grew up in rural Missouri near the Kansas border. “We listened to an AM radio station that played classic country music,” she recalls. “When I started to school in the 1980s, I didn’t even know who Michael Jackson and Madonna were.” Although she was singing in church by the time she was three, it wasn’t until she turned eight that she got her big break. That’s when the producers of the nearby Truman Lake Opry spotted her wowing a crowd in a talent contest. With her mother’s cautious approval, Goans became a full-fledged member of the Opry a year later. She continued to perform there every week until she was 17, frequently opening for such Grand Ole Opry stars as Bill Anderson, Little Jimmy Dickens and Grandpa Jones. In 2002, she crossed her fingers and moved to Nashville.

With That’s Just Me, vocalist Teea Goans fuels the enthusiasm she first ignited with her 2010 debut album, The Way I Remember It. That treasury of traditional country tunes earned Goans four appearances on the Grand Ole Opry and a guest spot on the TV show that celebrated Bill Anderson’s 50th anniversary as an Opry member. In its glowing review of The Way I Remember It, Country Weekly magazine observed that the album “reminds us that country can be simple yet sophisticated and, sometimes, sublime.”

In addition, Goans’ music video for “Letter From God,” perhaps the most popular song on the album, was a finalist for a 2011 Regional Emmy Award in the arts category.  Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers were so impressed by Goans’ music that they picked her to open their shows during their month-long run last fall at the Oak Ridge Boys Theater in Branson, Missouri.

(Teea Goans, by the way, is pronounced TEE-uh GO-uhnz.)

The 35 mile long Armstrong Trail is located on the former Allegheny Valley Railroad line along the eastern bank of the Allegheny River in Armstrong and Clarion Counties. The trail links such towns as Ford City, Kittanning and East Brady and is a great place to bicycle, walk, jog, bird watch, geocache or exercise in a safe relaxing environment. Horseback riding and cross country skiing are also possible on designated sections. The trail is for non-motorized use only.

20 miles of trail have been improved with crushed limestone or asphalt surface. Funding for materials and volunteer labor have been secured for another 6 miles of trail targeted for completion by 2013. Plans are being developed to improve trail conditions and to better establish connections with the Redbank Valley Trails and others in the Erie to Pittsburgh Trail.

CRUISE 8 – Keith Bilbrey and Charlie McVay

Danna - Keith Bilbrey - Dick

Danna – Keith Bilbrey – Dick

KEITH BILBREY (born August 14, 1952) is an American country music disc jockey and television host in Nashville, Tennessee. He served as a disc jockey at Nashville’s WSM, as an announcer on the Grand Ole Opry, and as the host of TNN’s Grand Ole Opry Live.

In 1974, Bilbrey moved to Nashville to begin working for WSM, first as a substitute announcer for WSM-FM and then as a full-time disc jockey on WSM’s FM and AM stations. Throughout his career, Bilbrey worked every single time slot at WSM and became an iconic voice in the modern history of the station and fan favorite.

In 1982, Bilbrey began announcing on the Grand Ole Opry, joining a long tradition of legendary Opry announcers, including George D. Hay, Grant Turner, Ralph Emery, and Hairl Hensley. When The Nashville Network (TNN) began televising a thirty minute portion of the show in 1985, the young announcer became the first host of Grand Ole Opry Live. Bilbrey hosted Opry Live, along with the Opry warm-up show, Backstage Live, until TNN stopped airing the show in 2000.

Bilbrey’s affiliation with the Opry earned him additional opportunities in the world of country music television and radio. Starting in 1982, Bilbrey was the announcer for Ernest Tubb‘s Midnight Jamboree, a post that Bilbrey held until Tubb’s death in 1984. Bilbrey was the announcer for CBS’s telecast of the Country Music Association (CMA) Award Show for three years.

Keith presently appears weekly on Larry’s Country Diner on RFD-TV.

CRUISE 7 – Rhonda Vincent

Rhonda Vincent 4x4Rhonda Vincent (born July 13, 1962, Kirksville, Missouri) is an American bluegrass singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. The Wall Street Journal has proclaimed Vincent “the new Queen of Bluegrass”.

Vincent’s musical career began when she was a child in her family’s band The Sally Mountain Show, and has spanned more than four decades. Vincent first achieved success in the bluegrass genre in the 1970s and ’80s, earning the respect of her mostly male peers for her mastery of the progressive chord structures and multi-range, fast paced vocals intrinsic to bluegrass music. Vincent is an in-demand guest vocalist for other Bluegrass and Country music performers, appearing on recordings by Dolly Parton, Alan Jackson, Tanya Tucker, Joe Diffie and other notables.

She is the oldest of three children, and the only daughter of Johnny and Carolyn Vincent. Her brother Darrin is a member of the Grammy-nominated bluegrass group Dailey & Vincent.  A fifth-generation musician, Rhonda’s musical career started when at age five, she sang gospel songs with her family’s band, which was later known as the “Sally Mountain Show.”  Her father bought her a snare drum for her sixth birthday. At age eight, Vincent started playing mandolin. She soon excelled and began guitar lessons at ten years old. She later added fiddle to her list of instruments. In an interview with Ingrams magazine she said, “Dad used to pick me up after school, and Grandpa would come over and we played until after dinner almost every night. There wasn’t a lot going on in Greentop, but it was always hopping at the Vincent house.

Casino Theatre in Vandergrift PA

Allan Walzak takes us for a tour of the CASINO THEATRE in VANDERGRIFT, PA.

Casino Theatre

Casino Theatre

The Casino Theatre was built in 1900 in the Greek Revival Style. The theatre’s most distinctive and historic feature is its temple front with four Greek Ionic columns. From its founding until 1927, the Casino hosted live entertainment and was a popular stop along the “Vaudeville Circuit”.

Among its historic visitors during the past century are President William H. Taft, world boxing champion Bob Fitsimmons, composer Hoagy Carmichael, the Lone Ranger, Tex Ritter and the Three Stooges. In 1927 the Casino was remodeled as the areas largest movie theater. In the 1950’s, the theater was converted to show wide-screen movies to compete with television. The first show was “The Robe”, a Biblical spectacular.

Many generations of local residents now reminisce about enjoying popcorn and movies at the Casino with friends, school groups, or that special guy or girl. More that a few “veteran couples” credit holding hands in the balcony of the Casino as the beginning of their long-lasting marriages.

In 1981, with the building of the new style, multi-screen movie theaters throughout the valley, the Casino could no longer attract sufficient audiences, and the theater closed its doors. A performing arts company briefly presented some stage plays in the mid 1980’s, but could not find financial success, and the auditorium’s seats were removed and the theater was used for storage space.

When the building was threatened with demolition in the late 1980’s a community group spearheaded by high school English teacher Eugene Iagnemma organized and volunteered to restore the theater to a showplace for future generation, and secured a place on the National Register of Historic Buildings. In 1992, the group formalized as Casino Theatre Restoration and Management, Inc. (CTRM), a non-profit corporation, and began restoration work. The architectural firm of McLachlan, Cornelius and Filoni, who have restored Heinz Hall and the Benedum Center in Pittsburgh, and who are nationally recognized as experts in historic theater restoration, were commissioned by CTRM to draw plans for the restoration.

The Casino Theatre is once again enjoying the reputation and popularity of her heyday. Audiences from throughout the Alle-Kiski valley and well beyond have filled the auditorium and enjoyed the wonderful entertainment and the unique atmosphere of a “real theatre” ever since the doors of the theatre reopened in 1995.

Armstrong County League of Arts

Marilyn Rea 4x4

Marilyn Rea

ARMSTRONG COUNTY LEAGUE OF ARTS with MARILYN REA WELCOME TO THE LEAGUE OF ARTS – LOG CABIN –A little about our organization and it’s inception to present day – – – –

 THE START: From the 1960’s to the early 1970’s, a small group of artists and craft persons formed an organization called the “Country Arts and Crafts”. This group met monthly at the studio of artist Marilyn Rea located, at that time, in Burrell Township, Armstrong County, PA. The members were from surrounding townships of Armstrong and Westmoreland. In 1974, the group disbanded and allocated its treasury monies for the formation and incorporation of the present day organization known as the “Armstrong County League of Arts”.

 The new organization was initially formed and guided by a Board of Directors consisting of four couples which drafted the by-laws and were then legally completed by an attorney as a non-profit incorporation. Ford Cliff Elementary School in Ford City, PA. became the Arts Center for the first five years of incorporation. In 1974, William Rea donated the land which the League of Arts is now located on. Carl and Marilyn Rea sold their home and financed  building the present League of Arts building. Carl and Marilyn built their private home adjacent to the Log Art Center.

 The promotion of “arts, crafts and music” is the goal of the organization.

The League of Arts is located at 461 Cadogan-Slate Lick Road, Kittanning PA on Route 128 North Phone 724-763-1722

Keep Off The Grass

 

Tom - Julia - Linda - Wayne

Tom – Julia – Linda – Wayne

Wayne & Linda Hetzler started a band in March of 1976 and a marriage in Dec. of the same year. “Tender Lovin’ Country” performed as a group for the next 25 years throughout the tri state area and have opened for many Nashville acts.

They served as staff band at Country Paradise Park during the late 70’s and early 80’s. From 2000-2006 Wayne & Linda toured the east coast campground circuit with a clown group called “Clown-n-Around” doing music, skits, magic, and balloon sculpture to the delight of children and adults alike.

Bluegrass has always played a big role in this group as Wayne is proficient on banjo, mandolin, fiddle, and guitar and Linda on bass. As recent trends in country music have gone down a “different” path, the Hetzlers with ” Keep Off the Grass” are embracing bluegrass and gospel music.

Other members of the group include Tom McGarrity from Fairview on acoustic guitar and Julia Chorle of Hilliards, PA. Tom was part of the original group in ’76 and Julia, who is Linda’s sister, brings a new dimension to the group with her tremendous harmonies and lead vocals. The bluegrass community is a huge family that “Keep Off the Grass” is proud to be a part of.
