Normally this post is called, Coming Up! but since we’re running a little behind, it is more of a look at what’s happening this week.
Running a restaurant is hard. Most of them fail the first year and most of the rest fail soon after. But for those who make it, they’re rewarded with long hours, lots of bureaucracy…and the knowledge that they’re doing what they love. On the next Where We Live, it’s our small business “after hours” event – where we talked about the challenges of the restaurant business.
June is National Homeownership Month and peak Real Estate season. Connecticut’s housing market is finally showing signs of improvement, but it is not the market it was before the crash in 2008. We’ll talk with a panel of housing officials from across the state. And we’ll hear about the recent sale of some of the state’s lighthouses.
On the second installment of The Wheelhouse, we’ll tie up some loose ends from the legislative session. What bills slipped through under the radar? What didn’t make it this time around? And we’ll talk about the big national stories, including the NSA surveillance leaks, which is evolving daily. What stories are you reading up on this week? You can join our news roundtable, The Wheelhouse on the next Where We Live.
Like many artists, the Connecticut-based Caravan of Thieves doesn’t fit into a particular genre. They describe themselves as “Gypsy Swinging Serenading Firebreathing Circus Freaks!” These Freaks join us in-studio for conversation and music – unfortunately, no firebreathing included. They’re playing in their home-state later this week and we’ll preview that show.
On the six-month anniversary of the Newtown shootings, The Colin McEnroe Show and Where We Live will broadcast live from the offices of the Newtown Bee. We’ll join the community in the morning during the moment of silence at 9:30am and talk about the effect of this tragedy on the town as a whole.
