Wow, what a strange year. So many celebrities have died, the Cubs won the World Series, and Trump is elected President of the United States of America. Holy s h I t . ... And a thunderstorm at 9:00 am Christmas Morning in Omaha.
He said "They are some big, ugly red brick buildings"
...and then they were gone.

Not many people will know this name...
But my classmate Mike (Kronch) Kronchsnabel of Trout Tunes, a great Omaha music supporter, just passed away.

RIP Kronch, your contributions to the Omaha Music Scene will be missed.
I'm really bummed.

Kind of tough to forget that name! Went to school with Mike for years at Roncalli. I don't think I have seen him or crossed paths with him since I seen him walk off the Orpheum stage with his diploma in May of 1978. Hope he had a good life.

Rest in Peace Kronch

Tim McMahan, Lazy-i.com wrote:Before I get to the weekend, some thoughts on Mike Kronschnabel, a.k.a. Kronch, who passed away yesterday.

If you were kicking around the Omaha music scene in the early ’90s you knew Kronch. He was a fixture at all the good rock shows with his video crew and their tri-pods and cables and microphones positioned off to the sides of the room, out of the way but close enough to catch the action on stage. Sometimes it was just Kronch with a video camera. Either way, you knew you were in the right place that night because Kronch was there videotaping the whole thing for his cable show, Trout Tunes.

We only spoke a few times when we bumped into each other at shows. He had a warm voice and a generous nature and was always good conversation because he knew his stuff and he had good taste and he was passionate about local original music. Everyone knew him and respected him because we knew he was documenting a scene that wasn’t going to be around forever. Well, more than 20 years later, Omaha’s music scene is still very much with us, built upon everything that came before it. And thanks to Kronch, we have a record of it to watch again on YouTube. Check out his channel.

These days when I go to shows every time I see a gang of digital camera people (usually from Hear Nebraska) I think of Kronch, who did it before anyone else. He is missed.

Alfred John Caniglia Sr
On Saturday, the last of the original Caniglia siblings from the sprawling restaurant family died. Alfred John Caniglia Sr. was 88 when he passed away at his home in Fountain Hills, Arizona. Near his side was his wife of 65 years, Mary Ann.

In all, at least 25 members of the Caniglia family over three generations operated eating establishments in Omaha. The first was patriarch Cirino Caniglia, who operated a bakery. This was followed by the five Caniglia brothers, including Al Sr., and their sister Grace (Caniglia) Piccolo, and then the majority of their children, who helped.
