Tuesday enjoy extra cool show

Tuesdays, from 8 to 10 p.m., “The Other Side” is a good listen on KVMR 89.5 FM. Once in a while, DJ Mikail Graham sends out an alert about extra cool shows coming up.

Oct. 16 is the date for one such show – Eclectic Composers Episode 25, it’s “The Jimmi Accardi Experience.” Those of you who have danced to his rock ‘n’ roll music will be interested. As a teen he played backup guitar for such hit makers as The Classics and The Regents. Later, he was lead guitarist behind Mickey Dolenz and Davey Jones of The Monkees. Graham says that’s just a small part of this wild cat’s unique talent, “who has another side clearly from the other side.”

New romance author gives talk

Author Kate Perry offers no bodice-ripping heroine but rather a protagonist who is more akin to Elaine from “Seinfeld.” This is the type of character Perry, a former techie turned author who is part of a new generation of romance writers, brings to life in her latest title, “Project Date,” a fun, flip, and very contemporary book. It’s a story about a ditzy young woman who finds herself in compromising but highly amusing situations in her attempts to find Mr. Right.

Hear the entertaining Perry on Saturday, Oct. 13, at The Book Seller, 107 Mill St., Grass Valley, 1-3 p.m. Call (530) 272-2131 for more information.
