While Riverside's history and charm is easy to see, it takes a special business owner to see the unique potential that our small village in the forest offers. Luck for us, our guest today saw that potential when he decided to branch out on his own in Riverside.
My guest today is Joel Alejandro. Joel is the owner of Mago's Styling Cave, a new barber shop located right here in downtown Riverside.
In our conversation, we discuss Joel's start in and passion for barbering, how commuting through Riverside led to Joel opening his barber shop here, and how Riverside's strong sense of community has already made him feel welcome in our little village.
I really enjoyed learning more about Joel's vision for his barber shop in Riverside and I think you will too.

As generations of Riverside families with young children have done before us, we took the plunge – pun intended – and joined Riverside Swim Club (RSC) this summer. And if our daughter's excitement level on opening day about having a group of her local friends to play and swim with all summer was any indication of what lies ahead, we're confident we've made a good investment.
Assuming we weren't the only family in Riverside looking to learn more about the pool, I reached out to Chris Porter, a long-time board member and current president of Riverside Swim Club.
In our conversation, we discuss how Chris and his family found their way to Riverside and how a neighbor's encouragement lead to Chris volunteering for the RSC board. Chris also shares a brief history of the pool, what's on tap for this upcoming summer, and why young families should consider joining the pool to tap into a built-in community of family fun.
I really enjoyed learning more about RSC and I think you will too. Here's my conversation with our neighbor Chris Porter.
April is Riverside Junior Woman's Charity (RJWC) month here at Live Here Riverside. We are highlighting the many great things that the Juniors do right here in Riverside in three mini episodes featuring three different members and their stories.
My third guest in this special series is Christine Long, a native of Riverside and a long standing member of the Riverside Junior Woman's Charity.
In our conversation, we discuss Christine's experience growing up in Riverside, how the charitable component of the Juniors is what initially attracted her to the group, and her appreciation of the many forms of kindness shown both within the Juniors and through out Riverside.
I hope you enjoy getting to know our neighbor Christine Long.
Welcome neighbor and thanks for stopping by. My name is Brian Plain and I'll be your host.
