The week before the Fair, WLLR Promotion Director Jessica Tillberg and I talked about how we could best remember our friend Bo J Spates, who passed away in June.
The tree! We ALL love this tree that looks down at us every year at the Fair (and will look down on the WLLR booth long after we're gone)....so we wrapped it in a sparkly blue ribbon (blue was Bo's favorite color) and put Bo J's name on it.
The 'Bo J Blue Ribbon Tree', looking down on WLLR live broadcasts--this year, and every year, at the Great Mississippi Valley Fair.
God bless Bo J.
