The director of winemaking at Arizona Stronghold Vineyards is helping host a river trip in the Verde Valley Saturday, July 23, complete with lunch and a wine tasting. Correction: this event has been canceled. See Stronghold Vineyard for more information on future events.

When you put your key in the ignition and turn on the radio, what station would play right now? None. The radio stations and music selection up here in the Verde Valley is bleak. It's all about the iPod or some select CD's.

What's the first record you bought? Shit, I don't remember. It was probably either Abbey Road or Revolver.

What's the first concert you saw? Judas Priest, with Accept and Iron Maiden opening.

What's your favorite concert you've ever been to? A good friend named James brought me to see Ahmad Jamal, front row, at the Blue Note in New York City. Fucking amazing. I remember James saying that he (who has won Grammys) felt like a child watching Ahmad and his band.

What's the last song played on your portal music player? "The Green Manalishi," by Judas Priest of Unleashed in the East.

Preferred format: CD, vinyl, cassette, 8-Track or digital? I am still in CD land. All my old vinyl, cassettes and 8-Tracks have long been pawned off to fund more recent endeavors.

What's your favorite CD? In Another's Eyes, by City Folk. Hard to find, soulful folk music from the Bay area. Yes -- I love heavy metal and folk.

Who is your favorite singer or band? Come now. How could I answer that? Priest, The Dead, City Folk, Zero Seven, The Black Keys, Vivaldi, etc., etc.

Does you computer track how many times you've played something -- if so, what's at the top of the list? Riot, "Restless Breed."

What was your favorite new or new-to-you album from 2010? The Black Keys (Brothers). It's a CD that someone gave me and I have no idea what the title is. It starts with a tune called "The Go Getter." It's a bad-ass garage effort.

What one song would you play if you had a world-wide radio audience? "I Am Not Impressed," by City Folk.

Who is your favorite local artist? Puscifer.

What is your favorite local venue to see music? The Orpheum in Flagstaff or the Rhythm Room in Phoenix.

What is your favorite music video? I don't watch videos that often. A friend and I died laughing watching "Sister Christian" by Night Ranger the other night. Boy, did that bring back some 80's high school memories.
