Ron Green Memorial Benefit Concert planned Oct. 1

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — Lake County Community Radio is hosting a memorial benefit concert on Oct. 1 for longtime radio personality Ron Green.

Join the KPFZ family for what is sure to be a memorable and fun event dubbed by the organizers, “For the Love of Ron Green.”

It’s an outdoor concert so bring your lawn chairs, put on your dancing shoes and plan on having a good time in Green’s memory.

Concert admission is free.

Green is lovingly remembered for his radio show, “The Philadelphia Lawyer,” a listener and member favorite on KPFZ. Green used his show as a platform for his advocacy of civil rights and justice.

As a director on the LCCR Board, Green advocated for community radio through the many fundraising concerts he produced, most recently the Moonalice and The Barry Melton concerts.

“It is with grateful hearts that we honor Ron’s legacy with a special event in his memory,” said LCCR Board President Olga Martin Steele.

The concert is a memorial and celebration of Green’s life. He made countless contributions to the community he loved, especially community radio.

His wife, Linda Lake and their family will attend along with Green’s many radio friends and listeners and those he helped over the years prior to retiring from his law practice.

“It will be a reunion of sorts,” Lake said. “A time to reconnect with old friends and make new ones. Ron knew so many people from different walks of life.”

Music for the concert will be provided by The Andre Williams Band and Beatz Werkin. Food by La Chilanguita and wine by Cache Creek Vineyards and Winery may be purchased on site.

Commemorative T-Shirts will be sold by KPFZ and donations to the Ron Green Memorial Fund are gratefully accepted at the gate or by mail to: LCCR, Inc., P.O. Box 446, Lakeport, Ca 95453. Proceeds will go to the Ron Green Memorial Fund to support KPFZ.

Cache Creek Vineyards and Winery is located on 250 New Long Valley Road, off Highway 20 in Clearlake Oaks. Gates open at 1 p.m. and the music starts at 1:30 p.m. Please leave pets at home.

“We want to thank the musicians, the Cache Creek family and La Chilanguita for their generosity in supporting this event,” said LCCR Vice President Dennis “Pop” Booth.

A few tables are available for purchase. For more information leave a message at the KPFZ office, 707-263-3640 or text 916-849-8170 and someone will get back to you.
