PTC tops off the tank with 'Last Gas'

Written by Allen Adams
Maine-based comedy opens theater's 2011-12 season

BANGOR - Anyone who has lived in Maine knows what a unique place it can be. Playwright John Cariani, author of the hugely popular "Almost, Maine" and a native of Presque Isle, understands that as well as anybody. Cariani's latest, "Last Gas," is currently in production at the Penobscot Theatre.

"Last Gas" is the tale of Nat Paradis (Dave Droxler), proprietor of Paradis' Last Convenient Store up there in Aroostook County. Nat is a man who has fallen into his fate rather than chosen it, managing the store and living above it, along with his father Dwight (Arthur Morison). He also sometimes shares that space with his son Troy (Cameron Wright).

Nat's best friend is Guy (Ben Layman), a near-constant presence in the store. Nat's also forced to deal with the unwanted attentions of his son's resentfully passive-aggressive mother Cherry-Tracy (Jasmine Tracy).

And all that jazz

Written by Justice Barnes

'By and large, jazz has always been like the kind of a man you wouldn't want your daughter to associate with.'

-Duke Ellington

For much of my life, I believed that there are two significant genres of music; anything by the Allman Brothers Band and anything that had the word 'booty' in it. Well friends, I stand corrected. Little did I know my musical horizons would be broadened on a Tuesday night in Bangor, ME.

Thanks to Wells Gordon, his jazz quartet the G Majors, and their perfect venue Nocturnem Draft Haus, I've become a believer. A big ol' finger-snapping believer.

Pulse radio introduces new dynamic duo

Written by Tim Bissell

BANGOR - There's nothing scary about Stephen King's latest work, but he is hoping his newest project will get people talking. The well-known horror writer and Zone Radio Corporation owner has hired former U.S. Vice Presidential candidate Pat LaMarche, and former newsman Don Cookson, to host The Pulse Morning Show on WZON 103.1 FM and WZON 620 AM weekdays, starting Sept. 12.

"I've missed in-depth coverage of Maine events and politics in the Bangor market. We're going to be provocative, informative and amusing, and we think everyone will enjoy the show except for certain politicians," explained King with a chuckle.

His new team plans not only to discuss local and national politics but also homelessness, welfare, healthcare, the job market and the rising costs of education; nothing is off limits.
