Christopher Green

Akron, Ohio shines on new PBS Broadcast TV show: “Around Akron with Blue Green”

The best that Akron has to offer is getting its very own broadcast television show on Western Reserve PBS this October 3rd at 9:00 p.m. Blue Green (yes, his name is Blue Green) is bringing his love of all things Akron to a 30-minute monthly TV show, “Around Akron with Blue Green.”



The Travelin' Johnsons

Phil Talbot and Wes McCraw are 2 of Northeast Ohio's best and most entertaining musicians. Together they are the Travelin' Johnsons. The duo or its members have entertained audiences from Key West to Put-in-Bay for a number of years. Phil Talbot, a former member of classic rock music icons The Outsiders, brings with him a seemingly limitless catalog of songs both old and new. Partner Wes McCraw is among the "A" list of Northeast Ohio session guitarists and has produced music for MTV, Hasbro Toys, and American Greetings. Both are former members of 20 + year Put-in-Bay veterans, Calabash. With a fan friendly performance style and a set list that draws from Modern/Classic Rock, Blues, and Jazz the Travelin Johnsons have something for everyone. Come and spend an evening with the Travelin Johnsons and see what people are talking about.


A tradition that has been going on longer than I can remember. The guys Christmas dinner. 72 awesome gentlemen.

There are so many things to be thankful for this year. Here are about 30 of them. The Danos girls Christmas party. Thank you to Dano. This wouldn’t be possible without you. #familychristmas.

The water was SO COLD. We survived.

This tree is at Danos. It was decorated in memory of Jody Smith. Jody was a big part of what made Danos feel like home. She is missed by the crew and by many others and has been heavy on our minds these last few weeks. Thank you to the Smith family for sharing this with the PLX family. This tree is very special to us and we ask that you show kindness and respect to this tree while it is in our hands. We hope this tree reminds us all of how precious life is and to cherish the times we share. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care....

Is the cold weather making you sad? Come snuggle up to a warm taco tonight.
2 for $2.25.

The fireplace is crackling and the popcorn is burning.

O H I O. Danos boys. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Thanksgiving with the family. Getting all these people together was like herding cats.

Dano and the crew are so excited to be back together and back on the lake. Dano’s was the heartbeat of the PLX and it starts beating again TODAY. Cold beer and sarcasm will be flowing. We can’t wait to see you ALL.... oh..and burnt popcorn of course. MERRY CHRISTMAS PLX.
