The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives will continue its Brown Bag Lunch series on Wednesday, July 27, when Butte Historical Society essay winner Shawn Hoskins will present his essay titled “Go Big or Go Home” about the giant sign that sat atop the Newbro Drug building in Butte’s warehouse district .
Shawn volunteers as a DJ at local radio station KBMF 102.5. He has been on the airwaves in one form or another for over 30 years, and now is part of the KBMF family on Saturday nights as the host of Metal Shop Radio. Shawn loves all things metal, whether it’s the music, the gallows frames of Butte, or the particulates floating deep within the Berkeley Pit.
The presentation will begin at noon and run about an hour at the Archives, 17 W. Quartz Street. Guests may bring a sack lunch and the Archives will provide coffee and water.
