Ukulele Lately Ep. 16: Walter Bates and the Reno Uke Festival

This week’s episode was a looooooooooooooooong time in production. Finally I was able to just sit down and get it edited and uploaded. This episode focused on an interview I had (back in April) with Walter Bates, who graciously shared his experience at the Reno Ukulele Festival.

Ukulele Lately Ep. 6: Artists (Grace and Tony; Victoria Vox), Weather, & Bushman

This week’s episode had a two-for-one special for the artist highlight (Grace and Tony; Victoria Vox). Though not a ukulele band, Grace and Tony were highlighted because of the special shout-out below. Cold weather care was also discussed, along with a follow-up to last week’s mention of the Bushman Ukulele Contest.

Shout-out given to Infinity, an 8yr. old who wrote a music review for a concert she went to with her father. You can find her review about Grace and Tony on her father’s blog here. The review ended up making a big splash on a lot of blogs. Congrats Infinity!
