Tony Starlight says
Divaville, one of the most beloved shows on KMHD 89.1 FM, will air its final broadcast on February 25, 2015. The show is created and owned by its host, Christa Wessel, who has decided to retire the show after 20 years as a volunteer DJ. In an open letter to fans posted on Divaville’s Facebook page, Wessel said, “Divaville has been a part of my life for the last 20 years, and it’s been my joy and privilege to share these great old vocalists with you”.

Local entertainer and venue owner Tony Starlight is producing and hosting A Divaville Farewell Concert to be held March 25, 2015 at the Alberta Rose Theatre featuring performances from some of Divaville’s famous fans, like vocalists Rebecca Kilgore, Valerie Day (from Nu Shooz), Robert Moore, vibraphonist Mike Horsfall and the ever eclectic 3 Leg Torso.

Whether a fan of Divaville or not, this show will be an occasion. A celebration of vocal jazz from the ‘20s through the ‘60s, showcasing a collection of artists performing, who are all headliners in their own right, and will mark the first time these artists have all been together on one stage in the same show.
