Hello and welcome to Life in the Slow Lane. I am your host for the evening, features editor Paul Lane. This blog will feature a little bit of everything in my world – music, television, movies, lifestyle technology, parenting and pretty much anything else going on.
For this introductory blog entry, we’ll discuss what’s coming up in April 17’s Night & Day (niagara-gazette.com/nightandday).
• A feature story on Record Store Day, profiling those few remaining Western New York independent record store owners. It’s too bad there are so few left. I recall many of my younger days being spent in record stores in Tonawanda, Amherst and Syracuse, and I can attribute a great deal of my musical maturity to such places allowing me to experiment.
• An interview with Robert Klein, the comedian/actor who will be in tow to perform a medley of Broadway hits. Despite not needing the coverage, Klein could not have been more pleasant to talk to. A class act all the way.
• The Harold Lloyd Film Festival, highlighting the silent actor’s career, comes to North Tonawanda this weekend. Many of film’s seminal moments came courtesy of this legend, and this fest offers a rare chance to see these films as they were meant to be seen.
Keep checking back for more from the Slow Lane. Goodbye for now.
