     Anita, Iowa…..”Memorial
Day Week is finally slowing down, everyone is getting ready to go back
to work,” says Sheila Everhart of the Dynamic Duo ‘Bob & Sheila.’ 
“We stayed pretty close to home and have been very busy working in the
theater and the musuem.  Bob has so much work to do in the museum, he
can hardly keep up with it.  We also had the roof fixed last year, and
of course there’s still a bad leak.  How do you deal with these kind of
problems, they just never seem to go away.”
     “We just had a terrific show at
the Oak Tree Opry,” Bob added, “John & Susan McNeill from South
Dakota did a fantastic job entertaining.  This couple is so talented,
and they have such a unique and very different way of presenting country
music.  It’s such a delight to hear and watch them play, and we had a
nearly full house to boot.  Our next show is another fantastic
performer, Capitol recording artist, Red Johnson.  Red makes his home in
Minnesota, when he’s at home.  He travels a lot, his big hit song
“There’s A Grand Ole Opry Show Playing Somewhere,” is still pretty well
known, and his fans know he’s going to do some great traditional and
classic country music. Red is in our Hall of Fame, and you can see his
picture and one of his Capitol records in the Pioneer Music Museum.  He
wrote another great song called “Veteran’s Day Is Every Day.”  He
usually brings a full band with him so we’d sure recommend reserved
seats if you want a good seat   712-762-4363.”
     “My back porch garden is doing
just fine,” Sheila added.  “I planted some sweet corn next to my chives,
we’ll see what they taste like. The chives are such nice plants, they
come back every year all by themselves, and we use them a lot,
especially in salads.  When they bloom, they have the nicest purple
clover-like blossoms, so they’re pretty as well as edible.”
     “If you can call a hamburger at
an auction in Harlan a budget lunch,” Bobbie Lhea, the Everharts
daughter commented, “I guess it is according to Dad.  We went to Harlan
to see what some guitars and accordions would bring.  Dad didn’t get the
accordions, he said they went too high, but he did get a Guild guitar
for $40.  He thought it was really funny, right in the middle of all the
musical instruments was a small wood-cutters axe.  He said he guessed
all the instruments were ‘axes’ too, so he bought the axe.”
     “We’re going to be performing at
the Blairsburg Opera House,” Bob added, “doing a Tribute to Woody
Guthrie as well as a historically prepared traditional music concert
June 9th at 7pm.  Blairsburg is just East of Fort Dodge.  We’ll also be
doing a show at the Fort Dodge Senior High School Little Theater as a
fund raiser for the Webster County Museum on Sunday June 10th at 7pm,
with Shadric Smith, a very popular songwriter and country singer from
Fort Dodge.  Come and see us if you are in the area, should be lots of
fun.  Don’t forget to send a post card to Iowa Public Television if you
want “Old Time Country Music” to be back in re-runs.”
