Bill Allred Dives Into Ogden's Music History in the New Issue of

Bill Allred looks into Ogden's music history in the new issue of Salt Lake's "Revolv" magazine.  "Revolv" covers fashion, music, art, food and people in and out of our state.  Read an expect of Bill's article about a man who made Odgen his home and after many decade is still performing:

"If you grew up in Ogden Utah, or spend any amount of time there you’ll begin to feel the vibrations of a city that is bathed in history. From it’s early roots in American fur trade, to it’s rise to prominence as a major railroad hub in the 40’s and 50’s, Ogden holds its fair share of ghosts. They can be rough, loud and dangerous or full of laughter and wicked fun. The City itself seems alive with these specters of the past, and you will certainly hear echoes of their stories on 25th Street where, thankfully, some of their old haunts still stand.

The railroad station, which is the origin of so much Ogden history, still stands at the west end of old 25th. To the east, on either side of what the locals call ‘Two Bit Street,’ are stately hotels, restaurants and nightclubs, some of which have a shadier past as opium dens and houses of ill repute. The venerable brick facades and red pavers in the sidewalk perfectly complement the vintage signs and colorful awnings that line the street and give you a true sense of an era gone by. Of course, building names have changed over the years, as have their purpose, but echoes of the ghosts of Ogden’s history are still present..."

You can find "Revolv" in bookstores around Salt Lake and Unhinged in Sugarhouse.
