The Lone Star-bred collective, The Texas Gentlemen, takes its cues from some of the iconic acts of the past — the quicksilver brilliance of The Wrecking Crew and Bob Dylan’s one-time backers The Band are the most obvious examples.

This week, Ric has a real treat lined up for you: we will be exploring the expansive box set, "Pink Floyd: the Early Years 1965 to 1972". Released in 2016, this box set contains over 20 cds and dvds.

One of the key styles of early rock n roll, Rockabilly combined rock and blues with country, or "hillbilly", music. Rockabilly artists tended to cultivate a wild, "bad boy" image. Some people consider Rockabilly artists to be rock's first punks. Although there have been many revivals throughout the years, we will focus on the original Rockabilly movement, which only lasted from about 1956 to 1960.

Exploring Sonoma County’s Varied Geology

Aug 9, 2015

From deep underground to right out in the open, Sonoma County’s geologic heritage is varied and fascinating. A special series of hikes next weekend offers close-up looks at some highlights, with explanations from a knowledgeable guide.

Another aspect of Sonoma County's recent geologic history--one that won't be featured in Melosh's transect hikes--is the mining that was active year in decades past. Evidence of that, especially for mercury, remains plentiful, but may be hazardous.
