Duke Levine’s Album Release: The Fade Out

One of Boston’s premiere guitar players, Duke Levine, released a new album in March (he kicks one out about once every 9 or 10 years… he’s a busy guy).  Titled: The Fade Out, is is quintessential Duke Levine, a melding of rock, roots, country, soul (and probably 3 or 4 more genres) and, also quintessential Duke, […]


Acme Theater – Dead Man’s Cellphone

A smattering of photographs from the recent production of “Dead Man’s Cellphone” at the Acme Theater in Maynard.  (The show is long over.  I’ve been very tardy in posting here in 2016…)   The set design for the show was quite original and challenging.  A backlit projection screen provided a lot of interesting and dynamic […]


Stone Mountain LIVE Christmas Show 2015

In the middle of our busy December we look forward to an evening of music among friends at the Stone Mountain Arts Center and their annual Christmas show. Aided by the great house band led by Duke Levine, Carol Noonan hosts some fantastic talent hitting many of the holiday favorites plus some unique arrangements.  Returning guests were […]


2015 WAVM Beacon Santa Telethon

I recently found out that this is my 25th year involved with the WAVM Beacon Santa Telethon (I had earlier guessed it was 23 years).  Back when I first became involved the telethons had raised just over $84K for the Beacon Santa fund.  This year the students of WAVM were looking to cross the $1 million […]

2015 Maynard Sip and Stroll

We had delightful weather for last night’s Sip and Stroll in downtown Maynard.  And it showed… The sidewalks and shops were PACKED with people.   It was so busy it was actually difficult to take photographs.   Congratulations to the Maynard Business Alliance and the town for a great kickoff to the Christmas holiday season.

Veterans Day 2015 in Maynard

As long as I can remember we’ve never had rain on Veterans Day (I’m sure it has happened, but it’s very rare).  This year Maynard had a special ceremony to recognize the new Wall of Honor.  Formerly at the American Legion Hall (which is in the process of closing) it is now a permanent exhibit […]


Maynard Fest 2015

Well it certainly wasn’t the best weather for this year’s Maynard Fest, but a little rain and wind did not keep too many folks away from downtown. As with any event that lasts several hours and has an ever-changing flow of entertainment, there are way too many pictures.  (There would have been more, but due […]

Lunar Eclipse

Lunar eclipse in totality. This is probably just a bit more than what you would see with your eyes. Tough to tease out “reality
