  • Ralston Bowles, Musician and Coordinator of “Tuesday Evening Music Club” at Meijer Gardens

Ralston and I chat about why, after performing music for many years, it wasn’t until 2004 that he decided to record his first album.  We also discuss the influence his father had on him musically, the first time he picked up an instrument, what he listened to growing up, what brought him from Gary, Indiana, to Grand Rapids, his interest in poetry and his two years as a school teacher.

We get into what kept him going when he had cancer, advice he would give to others going through a similar experience, the great community support that got him on stage at Rothbury in 2009, plus what it was like meeting Willie Nelson and Bob Dylan there, his impression of the Grand Rapids music scene from past to present, what he has lined up for this year’s Tuesday Evening Music Club at Meijer Gardens, and more…..

I’m really looking forward to introducing you to folks around West Michigan every week who are helping to positively shape our area with their music, their art, their bold business ideas, and the causes they’re passionate about!

Tom and Jake Scheidel also join me to chat about the 8th annual Jake’s Music Festival to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. We talk about the eclectic group of musicians that will be performing, about some of the important things people should understand about Juvenile Diabetes, and those who help make Jake’s Music Festival possible.
