What’s that? We still have 2 shows to book next week?! GAH!
No worries, we’ll be sure to have exciting shows for you when we return from the holiday weekend. Tucker is working on a program about ROCKS. (like the geological history of Connecticut.. old, old rocks.) And there’s a chance we’ll be doing a live show in the Berkshires on Friday. Representing our newest broadcast home, Robinhood Radio.
Update: No rocks OR robinhood this week! But stay tuned in the coming weeks.
Enjoy your (long) weekend, here’s what we have for next week:
MONDAY: Memorial Day Special Broadcast
The Future of NATO – America Abroad May 2012 Anchored by Ray Suarez
The North Atlantic Treaty Organization meets later this month in Chicago to talk about the alliance’s future. After moderate success in Libya and as NATO forces withdraw from Afghanistan, we hear reports from Brussels, Kabul, and Washington about where NATO has come from and where it’s going.
TUESDAY: Dan Roberti
Dan Roberti is a little-known candidate from a well-known political family, making a big run at a seat in congress. Coming up, we’ll continue our Where We Vote series and give you a chance to ask questions of Dan Roberti – a democrat running for the 5th congressional district seat. He’s has big success in fundraising – qualified for an august primary – and says he’s worn holes in his shoes walking the hilly 5th. He’ll get a chance to sit down and talk with us, and take your calls.
WEDNESDAY: Communities in Recovery
This weekend, the Bevin Bell company in East Hampton burned to the ground. The company had made bells there for 180 years. Sleigh Bells that rang around the world…including in the Christmas classic, “It’s a Wonderful Life.” The loss of this factory wasn’t just a loss of an historic, iconic company. It meant the possible loss of identity for an entire town. Today, where we live, communities recovering from disaster. As we heard about the “Belltown” fire – we were also marking the one-year anniversary of two tragic tornados – one that claimed 160 lives in Joplin Missouri, one that surprised the city of Springfield Massachusetts. We’ll also catch up with a reporter in Vermont who’s been covering that state’s effort to rebuild after massive floods last year. And, we’ll revisit Branford, Connecticut – 14 years after a devastating fire in the town center. How has Branford bounced back? It’s a story of hope for other communities in recovery.
THURSDAY: Kate Callahan
It’s an interview with singer-songwriter Kate Callahan! It’s been six years since her last album, but Kate’s back with “Two Doors”, songs that explore capitol punishment, reincarnation and forgiveness. Today she’ll talk about her new record, and play a few songs in Studio 3.
