Hector Anchondo and More
Air Date: 02/11/2021
Hector Anchondo Hector Anchondo picked up a guitar at the age of 16 and has never looked back, finding success on the music scene with his own rock band, Anchondo. While his fans wanted more of his signature Latin-infused rock, Hector felt a calling to play the blues. He packed up and moved to Chicago for a year, listening to nothing but the blues, and it changed his life. Starting over in a new genre, Hector has separated himself as a gifted guitarist and someone destined to heat up the blues charts. Council Bluffs-based Anchondo took home the top prize in the solo/duo category at the 2020 International blues challenge, representing the Omaha Blues Society. He also snagged a prestigious Memphis Cigar Box Guitar Award for best guitarist in the same category that year. In this performance, Hector Anchondo performs his own blues original, "Let Loose Those Chains." A Time Capsule in Glass The Cold War ended in 1992, but the remnants of this historic period can still be seen in the stained glass windows of Strategic Air Command Memorial Chapel at Offutt Air Force Base in Bellevue. The windows are filled with symbolism that reflect the earliest days of the Cold War – the iconic red phone, jets and bombers that guarded the skies and the people below them, and they also honor the SAC airmen who served and died in the line of duty. Haute Stacker Melissa Stephens is the owner/chocolatier at The Cordial Cherry in Omaha. Her handmade cherry treats are works of art in their own right. But her creativity extends beyond the kitchen. Stephens, who has advanced degrees in science, also has a patent pending on an invention called the Haute Stacker. The Stacker is an elegant method for displaying or serving these decadent desserts. Matt Sesow's Paint Therapy After losing most of his arm in a freak childhood accident Matt Sesow discovered art helped him heal. He’s a prolific painter whose trauma flows onto the canvas in the form of bright colors and aggressive lines.
