Citizen of the Week

Wednesday, March 19, 2008

Roger Johnson has a lot in common with the Post Office -- "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds." Roger too. He has devotedly played music in town daily for years, often from his station in front of the New Orleans Hotel or in Basin Spring Park. His wide repertoire is well-received by a broad spectrum of visitors and locals alike. One nominator said, "Roger played at my wedding. He did start one tune at the wrong time, and my mom shushed him, but my dad thought he was the high point of the whole event."
