“Technical Difficulties” and “The Dating Game”

Tuesday, February 15

The Geezer Radio Hour takes you on another comedic romp through the Golden Years with the Jewels of deNial in a Valentine’s Day double-header Technical Difficulties and The Dating Game.

Technical Difficulties – Opal is frustrated with her new computer; Ruby can’t remember her password, and Pearl has trouble making an appointment with the eye doctor on her rotary telephone. In desperation, they turn to technical support, which tries to help them navigate through their questions.

The Dating Game – No, no, no. Don’t touch that dial. Valentine’s Day is coming up, and we find the Jewels trying out their newly-found computer skills, exploring the world of online dating. Will Opal, Pearl, and Ruby find the men of their dreams on this virtual playing field? Will true love prevail? Be sure to stay tuned for this exciting romantic interlude.


“The Stringman” Paul Imholte

Tuesday, March 15

If it has strings, Paul Imholte probably plays it. Known as the “stringman,” Paul plays nearly a dozen folk instruments and will entertain with traditional Celtic, American, and original music. A master of the hammered dulcimer, he is a huge proponent of introducing this somewhat rare and enchanting instrument to audiences across the Midwest. The hammered dulcimer is a trapezoid-shaped instrument struck with light hammers and a forerunner of the modern piano.
Besides playing the hammer dulcimer, he plays fiddle, guitar, mandolin, banjo, autoharp, cello, mountain dulcimer, and jaw harp. Paul sings about small towns and people that make their living on the land. A native of St. Cloud, Minnesota, Paul, has released ten CDs and performs at festivals and concerts throughout the United States.

Rockin’ Woody – Tom Strohmyer
