  • PROJECT PAT: At the amphitheater.

Citadel Communications and KPIR, “Power 92,” are expecting more than 12,000 people to crowd into the Riverfest Amphitheatre on Friday, June 16, for the Juneteeth Celebration.

The show, starting at 4 p.m. and running until around 11 p.m., will feature some of the biggest names in hip-hop and R&B, courtesy of Power 92. And someone is going to win a couple of floor seats in a drawing that will send them to Memphis’ FedEx Forum to join Power 92’s Broadway Joe Booker for the Jermain Taylor middleweight championship fight against Winky Wright on Saturday, June 17.

Saturday’s performers include Project Pat, Kelis, Lil’ JJ, Mack 10, Sammie, Cherish, Tyte Wurk, 214, Yo’ Gotti, Rasheeda, Trya, E-Dubb, Young Dro, Young Joc, J-Mizz, Cadillac Don with J-Money, XXZotic, G-Mack, Young Hogs, Take Charge, Dyboliq, Souf-N-Gutta, Playa Mone, Black Trump, Jotorius and the Boss Click.

Juneteeth, officially celebrated on June 19, represents the day word reached Texas after the Civil War in 1865 that African-American slaves were free.

Tickets for Juneteenth are $20 and available through Citadel Broadcasting at 401-0200.

  • Rapert compares Bill Clinton to Orval Faubus

    Sen. Jason Rapert (R-Conway)  was on "Capitol View" on KARK, Channel 4, this morning, and among other things that will likely inspire you to yell at your computer screen, he said he expects someone in the legislature to file a bill to do ... something about changing the name of the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport.
  • Fake news

    So fed up was young Edgar Welch of Salisbury, N.C., that Hillary Clinton was getting away with running a child-sex ring that he grabbed a couple of guns last Sunday, drove 360 miles to the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington, D.C., where Clinton was supposed to be holding the kids as sex slaves, and fired his AR-15 into the floor to clear the joint of pizza cravers and conduct his own investigation of the pedophilia syndicate of the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state.
  • Reality TV prez

    There is almost nothing real about "reality TV." All but the dullest viewers understand that the dramatic twists and turns on shows like "The Bachelor" or "Celebrity Apprentice" are scripted in advance. More or less like professional wrestling, Donald Trump's previous claim to fame.
