Yes, it’s Derby weekend and the 142nd Run for the Roses is Saturday. I hope you cash some tickets at the track. In hopes of getting some good luck, I surrounded myself with Faith, Hope and Love — aka the Yascone sisters — who with their Mom Glenda are hosting several Derby events and providing a place to stay for Star Jones. And I ask them to show off their musical talents as well.
Speaking of music, Harry Pickens actually played piano on stage with Dizzy Gillespice and other legends of the jazz world. Now a resident of Louisville, Harry talks to me about his personal coaching business that sprung from his struggle to get over stage fright. Harry will be the speaker at our Breakfast of Champions event next week, on Tuesday, May 10.
Also, I’ll discuss my Derby event schedule and even a couple of issues in the news. There’s now a controversy and a lawsuit that’s delaying the removal of the Confederate Stature on the U of L campus, and JCPS administrative personnel, who have long been overpaid, are upset about the prospect of a salary freeze as JCPS attempts to reform its finances. All on a Derby episode of the Rusty Satellite Show.
