011 - Katie Haas

May 25, 2018

My guest this episode is Katie Haas. She’s Vice President and head of Florida Business Operations for the Boston Red Sox. That means she’s the big boss for all Red Sox business operations here in Southwest Florida. She’s also active in the local business and nonprofit communities. Katie lives in Fort Myers with her husband Danny, and their two young kids. And, while she’s one of my best friends’ best friends, and I’ve picked my kid up at her house more than once, we’ve never really talked.

Young actors with the Florida Repertory Theatre’s Conservatory Program are currently performing “Heathers: The Musical.”  The Off-Broadway rock musical is based on the 1988 cult-classic black comedy film, “Heathers,” featuring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater and Shannen Doherty.  The show delivers a satirical take on issues relatable to young people including the often-malicious social hierarchies that can dominate high school life, bullying, violence and empathy.

My guest this episode is Tom Eberhardt - Tommy to me. He’s a colonel with the Lee Country Sheriff’s Office, and has been serving there for 25 years. He lives here in Ft. Myers, FL with his wife, Lori. They have 2 Daughters, Rhyan and Taelor, and 2 grandkids - He LOVES his grandkids. I’ve known Tommy for about 15 years and it’s fair to say he’s forgotten more about playing guitar than I’ll ever learn, and I’ve been playing more than half my life. We shared a stage at Next Level Church for years and honestly if I list the people I know that I would consider “into music”, Tommy would be right there at the top, so I figured this show would be right up his alley.

Etude Winemaker talks Pinot, Tall Bottles, and sell-out Rosé. The charming and effervescent winemaker behind Carneros powerhouse Etude, Jon Priest, stopped by the studio for this week’s Grape Minds. We talk about the long, tall Pinot Gris bottle (the Galliano of the wine shelf), the beguiling Pinot Noir grape, and a Santa Barbara County foray into by-the-glass tier wines.
