Had such a great time broadcasting the 4th of July Parade from Nevada City on both Newstalk 830 and Star 94FM. First time in a very long that we did the live broadcast on air…and Hollie Grimaldi-Flores did a great job. And many thanks to the sponsors, but also Tom Coleman and his staff at the National Hotel who gave us the great seats on the veranda. And, kudos to the crowd who were polite and enthusiastic to everyone in the parade, despite political and social persuasions. It went so well I can confidently state that it will be a yearly tradition for KNCO again…and perhaps we will broadcast the Constitution Day Parade as well. We shall see.
