The Vegas Soulcialite’s Memorial Weekend Wrap-up

  For the long holiday weekend I decided to leave the comforts of my downtown neighborhood and head for the ‘burbs…man was I nervous. Outside of downtown Las Vegas and the areas surrounding the Strip everything looks the same. Lots of tan, light brown, dark brown and dirt brown buildings. Sometimes I wonder how anyone tells anything a part. Not that there’s anything wrong with brown, I love brown. I just like a little variety in my [ ... ]

The Vegas Soulcialite Loves the Red, White and Blue

  Memorial Day is one of my favorite holiday weekends. Maybe it’s because I’m so patriotic—I do vote and I love a man in uniform. Or, it could just be that I love barbeque—which you already know, and lounging around the pool….whatever it is, I love it. So besides hanging out on an inflatable raft eating burgers and potato salad all weekend, I plan to spend a little time tonight at one of my favorite supper clubs, [ ... ]

The Vegas Soulcialite Peeks Through the Looking-Glass

    I don’t watch a lot of television—at least not in the reality shows, make-over, or dance competition category. So when I had the opportunity to catch the Jabbawockeez show, ‘MUS.i.C’ at the Monte Carlo hotel back in 2010 with my friend Kanette, I wasn’t really all that excited. I was informed by my friend that they were the winners of ‘America’s Best Dance Crew’ and that they were really good. I believed her, she has great taste, but nonetheless, [ ... ]

The Vegas Soulcialite Licks Her Fingers

We have more than 300 sunny days and warm nights here in the desert, but for some reason the words barbeque and Las Vegas just don’t mix. It really is hard to find good ‘que in this town. You would think it would be easy with all the southern transplants—I believe most of the southern immigrants must have had to leave their recipes and secrets at the Nevada state border. However, my friend Downtown Steve recently told me he [ ... ]

The Vegas Soulcialite Honors Class

For some reason the theme of the last week has been ‘class’. I watched one of my favorite movies, Chicago last weekend and one of the songs that was actually cut from the film is called “Class”. Velma (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and Mama (Queen Latifah) sing about how there was a lack of it in the 1920’s… “Oh, there ain’t no gentelmen to open up the doors, There ain’t no ladies now there’s only pigs and whores And even kids’ll [ ... ]

The Vegas Soulcialite Loves Detroit

I’m a Detroiter at heart. I wasn’t born there and I’ve lived in other cities for long stretches but Detroit is the first place I remember. It’s where my memories begin and in some instances end. I met some of my dearest friends within the city limits of the Motor City and I’ve never owned a foreign car. When I go back—at least once a year, I pretty much stay in the city. Don’t get me wrong, I love Las Vegas and plan [ ... ]

KCEP Underwriting Benefits

In radio, advertising and underwriting are avenues for corporate sponsors to get their message out using a station’s airwaves. At KCEP, we make a distinction between underwriting and advertising. Underwriting is more a mutually beneficial partnership, whereas advertising allows a sponsor to plant a specifically crafted message at a specific time. KCEP follows the guidelines set by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to ensure our underwriting messages are clear, concise, and pleasing to the ears. The [ ... ]

The Vegas Soulcialite Likes Variety

  We are known for our over the top shows; bright lights, full bands and orchestras, feathers and dancers, aerialists flying through the air and acrobats tumbling across the stage. Everyone in Vegas, locals and tourists alike expect to be amazed. But just like any other job the workers can get bored with the same ‘ole-same ‘ole. Imagine having to flip and fly through the air 5-6 days a week! Jump and flip to this pole. Fly (gracefully) off [ ... ]
