Blue Mango Founders and Musicians To Appear on KDRT Thursday October 17

This weekend marks the 40th anniversary for Davis' legendary Restaurant Cooperative and Coffeehouse - the Blue Mango.  Tune  in or stream this Thursday at 1 pm for "That's Life" as host Lois Richter interviews some of the founding member/workers of the Blue Mango, including Ken Kemmerling, Maura Metz, and Russell St. Claire.  Additionally, local music fans can tune in Thursday evening 7-9 pm to "Live Tracks" when host Jim Buchanan welcomes special guest guiarist Bill Scholer to the studio, and Jan Peters via phone.  Both musicians are part of the more than 300 musicians who played at the Blue Mango during its 1979-94 "life" as a creative hub and community gathering space.  They are in-town this week to play at Friday night's special KDRT benefit concert 6 - 8 pm on the patio of Parkside Bar and Lounge, site of the Blue Mango, and for Saturday night's Blue Mango Anniversay Celebration for former workers/staff/Blue Mango family.
