Dave Mason Still Hard at Work

By Joe Nelson

I received this from Dave Mason, I wanted to share it...

Just wanted to let you know that while I'm on the beach (still), there's no-umm sand growing under my feet.

In June I'll be on NPR Television across the country hosting pledge breaks for "Ethan Bortnick-Generations of Music". At 9 years old, Ethan became the youngest artist to have his own National PBS Concert Special. He's now 17 and just completed another concert special which will be the focus of PBS programming in June across the country.

Recorded at KPBS, the special will feature Ethan and some of the most incredible musical friends who can be found. In the breaks in the show I'll be joined by Kathi Diamant and Maya Trabulsi to tell the story of Ethan, and to tell the story of Public Television and its importance in American Broadcasting.

The show will be available to all PBS affiliates across the country to showcase the talents of this now 17 year old musical genius.

Any mention …

The San Diego County Fair is OPEN

By Joe Nelson

   On Friday, The San Diego Fair held its 2017 Opening Day! With the theme "Where the West was Fun", fair-goers entered the gates kicking off yet another year of food, rides, concerts, livestock and tons more.

   Along with the opening, members of the media were treated to samplings of fair fare, and so much more.

   I will post some photos here, the rest can be found on my FB page. I am closing the SanDiegoRadio FB page as it really doesn't work as I hoped it would. If we are not currently friends, please send me a request along with a message, and we will connect.

   The concert series is always a favorite, the listings are HERE. For more info, visit

Enjoy the fair!

Long Time Radio Voice to Return to the FM Dial

By Joe Nelson

   I enjoy writing the stories with good news more so than the ones carrying bad news, such as yesterday's news of the folks let go at KFMB AM.

   Here will be one such good story. Monday morning I will share with you the story of the return of one of the most respected (from what I see/hear from listeners) jocks who has been off the dial for some time now.

   So 'Stay Tuned', Monday morning. I will have it here!

Have a great weekend!
