Thursday night’s showing of “Roseberry’s Charlottesville” was the first of two showings of the special “88th Birthday Edition” for Ed Roseberry. While we have done many different slide show presentations (and now have a monthly gig at C’ville Coffee) it is always great fun to do shows with Ed. He is an entertaining story-teller and his memory of places and events that he has covered is phenomenal!
My wife Karyn (a realtor by day) always helps at the door and last night had the added duties of selling Roseberry prints and taking the above snapshots of the show in progress. These events would be impossible with out her help!
We were thrilled to have media coverage for last evening’s show:
Newsplex ran a great story including some footage of the show and conversation with Ed.
The inimitable Kristin Twiford of NBC29 News did some on-location reporting from C’ville Coffee as well as an interview earlier in the day at our CHIL office.
And, of course, we had a great visit at the beginning of the day in the studio of radio station 106.1 The Corner with city councilor (and promoter of everything cool in C’ville!) Dede Smith. The Corner’s Brad Savage graciously hosted the segment so we could share with listeners info about “Roseberry’s Charlottesville” and what we’re up to at the Charlottesville Historical Image Library.
There’s another chance to see the show on Sunday at 5 pm. so, if you couldn’t make it last night, don’t miss this one!
