Hello and welcome back to our little Fresno podcast, Flowing With Famous!

Our Fresno culture for February 2017 includes an evaluation of how Mayor Lee Brand has done so far, we check in with Fulton Mall Street to see how it's going, talk about Fresno's beer scene and a podcast we were on (and forgot to mention Mikey being on Spanspek).

We take music break with Band Of The Episode, John Clifton Blues Band. Talk about all the music festivals coming to Fresno and remind ourselves that Clovis Unified is still, in some ways, living in the 1930s.

Thanks for listening!

This month of the show, we welcome the Fresno heat and discuss many Fresno things:

  • How about that Fulton Mall? You know we can't have an episode without a Fulton Street Mall talk. Right now everything is jacked up on Fulton and businesses are struggling, can they hold out until next year? Will the change in business on Fulton be dramatic, once it's completed.
  • Fresno also became President hopeful central for a couple weeks there and we break down Bill's, Hilary's, Bernie's and Donald Trump's visits to town.
  • The race to be Fresno's next Mayor is getting focused and we try to figure out if these guys will be good for Fresno.
  • An old Fresno business changing over to sex shop and the city is trying to stop it.
  • Full Circle continues with new owners.
  • Darius Assemi and Granville seem to have issues with Ashley Swearengin and thinks Fresno should be Clovis.
Also, we have a nice music break from Amoret!!

It's the first Monday of the month so it's time for a new Flowing. This episode we revisit the Fulton Mall groundbreaking and our feelings for that day. We stay in Downtown Fresno and talk about the Culture Arts District and if South Stadium is a good name for that area of Downtown.

The Audie's Olympic era has closed and we reminisce about the historic Tower District music club which leads us into the Band Of The Episode: Let's Go Bowling. 

The playing of Let's Go Bowling sparks yet another version of the game: What's The Greatest Music Act In Fresno History?

We then talk about last month's Fresyes Fest at Tioga and how we may be getting too old and if there a culture shift in Fresno nightlife. Plus Josh saw Justin Beiber... so that happened.

This episode of Flowing With Famous has been approved by the Fresno City Council for mixed use - whatever that's worth.

  • Yep, we have plenty of Fulton Mall talk (I guess this is the last time we can refer to it as the Fulton Mall).
  • California's High Speed Rail is knows the way to San Jose and this could mean a big boom for Fresno.
  • The Collegian calls Donald Trump "Hitler" and we say "If not them, who?!" Then Donald Munro responds.
  • MUSIC BREAK: The Blue (aka Wild Blue Yonder).
  • The Tower District has a lack of hipster problem, what can we do?
  • Did you feel the earthquakes?
  • We finish by "plugging" things up and we make an announcement about the show!

Oh man. The Fulton Mall Street drama keeps giving us an excuse to talk about Downtown Fresno and the Fulton Mall - may be one of the last times we talk about the Fulton Mall and not Fulton Street.

We also break down the whole business with Yosemite being sorta forced to change the name of The Ahwahnee Hotel. We play Band of the Episode: The Wee Beasties and talk about illegal gambling inside a local 97 cent store.
AND how Flowing With Famous is linked to a local porn store.
