One figure takes a step back…
Let’s recap shall we… we’ve already talked about the demise of the X at 100.5 earlier this week for a sports talk station. If you didn’t keep up with the City Stages stuff on Tuesday night, click here and then here. I’m still waiting for a great excuse to post my Shula rant, though it’s becoming somewhat moot now.
Then this evening I get a text message from a certain blogger. It was a simple note; “Jambor resigns as director of Sidewalk film fest.”
UPDATE: Wade has more information about the actual announcement on his site.
I dug a little deeper and visited the world of MySpace. Two clicks later, I felt confident enough to be able to lead this post off with this story. Erik Jambor is one of the best examples of our young professionals and the type of work and accolades that they are able to produce for our (and their) city. The added bonus of Jambor being from metro Birmingham should give hope to those that think that the system is completely broken. Improvements like the ones seen at this morning’s ribbon cutting at Woodlawn High School are only the beginning of things to come in the area. Erik will be alright. Sidewalk should hopefully survive as well. The questions on many of our minds will be answered soon.
…Another says thanks for the support
I hope that Reg doesn’t mind that I repost this. I found it on his MySpace page this evening as well and felt that those that are fans would want to read this message from him. For those not familiar with Reg’s Coffeehouse, the show originated here in Birmingham, Alabama on the X at 100.5, which ceased broadcasting yesterday afternoon.
Here’s his message:
Reg’s Coffee House Listeners Rule!
We can’t thank you enough…either of you, for making living in Birmingham that much better.
Enjoy the day.
