Radio and Ragtime

We appreciate the interest in our recent events. We have a good deal of follow up to do and hope you'll be patient with us in this matter. This past week has been pretty busy for us at our respective jobs, so we haven't posted for a bit. We always welcome your emails at

First thanks to Charles and Carol at KKFI, 90.1 FM. It was fun to experience being on air. They're great hosts. Make sure you tune in on Fridays at noon for Anything Goes.

The event at the Central Kansas City Public Library was a blast. We appreciate the staff and especially those in the Missouri Valley Room for past research assistance and hosting the event. Mary Beveridge organized the event and was great to work with. Chris, who handled the audio/visual and more, made everything come together. Pianist Wally Bradford played a rousing Petticoat Lane Rag to open our talk. The very nice lady for Rainy Day Books set up and made our book available. We had a good crowd and enjoyed hearing stories. Hope to share some of these here, along with an amazing Harzfeld's themed item that an attendee brought in for display.
