Bread & Gravy set for KSQM’s ninth ‘Music Where You Park’

Bread & Gravy — who plays Americana, blues, soul, classic rock, contemporary, bluegrass and more — is featured at KSQM 91.5 FM’s next “Music Where You Park” series, set for at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 18, at Olympic Cellars, 255410 US Highway 101, Port Angeles.

The series sees attendees in their parked cars at selected locations by 6 p.m., when KSQM 91.5 FM will begin a broadcast. The format may vary with each group, organizers say, but will include band member interviews interspersed with music that either inspired the featured musical group or some of their own original tracks. Free raffle tickets are handed out at 6:15 p.m.

Local publishing company launches new book

“Stuff According To Rocko: An Equal Opportunity Curmudgeon Looks At America,” the first release from Skookum Bay Publishing of Sequim in two years, is being exclusively released on Amazon’s Kindle Store for 90 days, publisher-editor Michael Bunnell said last week.

A paperback edition is under consideration for a later release.

“Stuff According To Rocko” is a collection of essays by an author who insists on being identified publicly only by Rocko, the nickname given to him years ago by Bunnell.

Skookum Bay Publishing prefers to sell its books through independent brick-and-mortar retailers, Bunnell said, but when it became clear this would not be a viable option for the foreseeable future, it was decided to launch “Stuff According To Rocko” as an eBook.

Read excerpts or order the book at www.sbaybooks.com/stuff-according-to-rocko.
