The Harmony of the Gorge chorus presents its annual musical show, “Radio Daze,” on Saturday, Nov. 17, at Columbia Center for the Arts in Hood River. The comedy takes place on a day in the life of a rogue radio station as it might have been in 1947.
The Tualatin Valley Harmony Masters men’s chorus will also be featured on the show with their vaudeville act.
Attendees will become a “live studio audience,” cued for applause, laughter or boos. The audience can also join in a sing-along if they wish by trying to stump accordionist Carol Bales with a song she doesn’t know.
There will be a matinee at 2:30 p.m. and an evening show at 7 p.m. Tickets bought in advance are discounted by $2. Regular ticket prices are $10 adult, $8 senior and $8 children. Tickets are available at Klindt’s Booksellers in The Dalles, Waucoma Bookstore in Hood River and Postal Connection in White Salmon, or from any Harmony of the Gorge member.

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive
The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
