SBEgaryCocolaCocola Broadcasting Companies began as a dream – one man’s dream to explore non-traditional uses of the television medium. Gary Cocola was a forty-year veteran of radio and television when he decided to create an independent television station which would offer viewers local and alternative programming.

“One of my main goals,” says Gary Cocola, President and CEO of Cocola Broadcasting Companies “is to always come up with new ideas and then implement those ideas into reality.”

 Dude, Where’s my Tri-Tip?

Although this question has been asked many times before, the answer has always been less than satisfactory–until NOW!

Just ask these two guys:

You would think these two retired (dudes), who’ve spent most of their professional days trying to keep things from going up in smoke, wouldn’t have a clue about the fine art of grilling—but you’d be WRONG. They’re experts at letting the smoke out.

IMG_0164 (640x480)In fact, Ken Holden and Ron Hunt can also cook it, slice it and serve it. (Dude, we’re talking about tri-tip here.) According to Pat Fennacy, “That Holden could never figure out what was wrong with my Continuum Transfunctioner but he can cook-up one hellava tri-tip!” 

Dude, we have finally found your tri-tip. Come and pick it up yourself by taking the short drive up to the  Meadow Lakes picnic area Saturday, September 20th. Remember, this is an SBE66 family-and-friends event, so you better not be the only one in the buggy on the drive up the hill. As always, SBE will provide the Tri-Tip BBQ and refreshments, but there’s more. That’s where you come in. This is a pot-luck event. Attendees whose last names end in A-K should bring salads and/or side dishes. Names ending in L-Z should bring dessert items. It’s OK to break the rules if you have a special dessert or side dish you want to bring. Ice for the drinks is always welcome. The festivities officially start at noon, but help setting up the tables is always appreciated if you can arrive earlier. We’ll also figure out how to throw in an official SBE66 meeting (short) somewhere along the way.

After you can eat and drink no more, join the caravan for a quick tour of your favorite Central Valley broadcast transmitter facilities.IMG_0183 (640x480)

“Whoa, I bet you can talk to the whole universe with that honkin’ tower!”

See you at Meadow Lakes, Saturday September 20, at Noon.  Don’t miss it!
