A juggernaut among podcasts, the Rusty Satellite Show checks in with Juggernaut Jug Band veteran Roscoe Goose (that’s his Jug Band name). Goose came to the studios from his home in Owen County to tell me about the Sept. 16 Jug Band Jubilee, a national event featuring nine bands from around the U.S. Come and bring the kids.

Barry Bernson is taking on a new role — movie star. He would call that an exaggeration, but he does have a part in an upcoming Nicole Kidman film made in Cincinnati. The former TV anchor is busy these days recording audio books. The man who once called me an “eminence grise” on the air is a true Kentucky treasure, though he lives across the River.

You’ll hear a big shout out to all my Facebook friends, 275 of whom wished me a Happy Birthday Monday. It’s the first weekend of college football, and the Cards are playing Purdue in Indy, and you could probably get a ticket cheap. It will be interesting to see what new Boilers coach Jeff Brohm has in store for his hometown team.

Other than the football, it’s Labor Day Weekend, highlighted by WorldFest at the Belvedere and, on Monday, the Hike, Bike and Paddle event with the Mayor.
