June 13, 2003
In his office upstairs from Paradise Cafe tucked behind divided rooms and a kitchenette Schuyler Lister sits at his desk and talks on the phone. Behind him is a giant dry-erase board full of concert dates and contacts. He hangs up the receiver and shrugs. Something about invoices. Tuesday afternoon, and it’s business as usual at Paradise Cafe, 728 Mass. Lister dismisses the phone call before launching into his favorite part about the restaurant: live music. Well, that and the food. But as Lister is quick to point out, he and his staff are working hard to make the establishment synonymous with both.

The rowdiest bluegrass band in Kansas reunites after a year apart
June 13, 2003
Split Lip Rayfield’s Kirk Rundstrom is probably one of the meanest looking guys in bluegrass. With his shaved head, occasional muttonchops and full-arm tattoos, Rundstrom gives the impression that the only way you’d get him in a bluegrass band is to sentence him to community service. Rundstrom is the kind of guy whose ‘84 BMW is held together by duct tape, forcing him to crawl in the window and dooming him to a full-body soaking should it rain. The kind of guy who cites Willie Nelson and Ministry as his two biggest influences. The kind of guy who drinks … “Espresso with chocolate and whipped cream,” he says, on the phone from Wichita. “If you’re drunk all the time, you don’t get a whole lot done.”
We need more fathers like him
June 13, 2003
He’s been gone 20 years this month. Funny how when I write this, I wonder if some readers might think he walked out on us, as many do. No, Dad left us the only way he would. He died in June, 1983. I still miss sending him a Father’s Day card and finding a present beyond the predictable tie he might like. Shopping for a card by an anonymous rhymer that expressed the right sentiment was always a challenge, so I wrote notes and eventually a letter telling him how much I loved him and what he meant to me. He framed it and hung it in his office.

June 13, 2003
To have worked alongside David Brinkley on television is to have experienced what might be called the Tommy Henrich Temptation. Henrich, who played right field for the Yankees when Joe DiMaggio was playing center field, must have been constantly tempted to ignore the game and just stand there watching DiMaggio, who defined for his generation the elegance of understatement and the gracefulness that is undervalued because it makes the difficult seem effortless.
