Artichoke's Bob Howard: Coffeeshop Conversations (BACK) @ Artichoke Music #249

By TOM D'ANTONI // OMN's podcast returns home to Artichoke Music after nearly three months in Covid exile to talk with Artichoke's CEO Bob Howard about their re-opening plans and the plans of other music venues. 

The last time we sat in the Café at Artichoke Music and recorded an episode of Coffeeshop Conversations was March 11th, nearly three months ago although it feels like another century ago.

Well, guess what? Even though Artichoke isn’t fully open yet, here we are back in the Café and six feet away from Artichoke CEO Bob Howard who is full of news, not only about Artichoke but about the future of all the music venues in Oregon.

Even though we’re masked…we’re here!

When will it open? What will it be when it opens? What will anything be when anything opens? What will WE be when it opens?

Bob may not have all the answers but he has a lot of ideas. That’s for sure.
