The Local Farey Tale of the Date Shake

Date Shake at Hadley’s Fruit Orchards in Cabazon, CA

Episode number 3 is complete! (And I’m already working on number 4!)

I encourage you to keep an eye on the “Date Shake Tale-Tellers” posts as I’ll be sharing some photos from Russell Schubert’s archive soon. I feel incredibly honored that he shared these Valerie Jean Date Shop related photos and articles with me and I look forward to sharing them with you!

Also, I’ll be offering “bonus” audio with “Date Shake Tale-Teller” posts on the Local Farey Tales Podcast Facebook and/or Instagram pages. I often end up with too many wonderful soundbites (a good problem to have) and so this is one way I can still share some with you! 🙂

In the meantime, you can listen to the episode under “Listen Here” on the menu or click this link. Then learn more via the hyperlinked Episode Notes.

Note: The photo is from the first (and only so far…) time I tried a Date Shake. As it becomes safer to travel, I look forward to properly exploring the “Date Shake Region” more thoroughly soon!
