Happy First Day of Fall! Northampton plans to welcome 51 refugees from places like Syria, Afghanistan, and Iraq…which has some folks suddenly concerned about our own homeless population. We also chat with our pal Dave Hayes the Weather Nut about droughts, El Nino, hurricanes, and other stormy weather.
In which the Bill Dwight Show is a little like Adele: quiet for a long time and then one day – BOOM! New album. Or podcast. Whatever.
So…hi everybody! What’s going on with you? Sorry we haven’t been around much. 2016 has sucked pretty hard, hasn’t it? Well, we’ll do our best to not add to the suckiness, and maybe even alleviate some of it, if we can.
This week, we talk a little politics, both local and national, and chat with playwrights Leanna James Blackwell and Tanyss Rhea Martula, along with actor Susan Daniels, about this year’s Play-by-Play event at the A.P.E. Gallery. There’s also a little treat for you MAD Magazine fans out there.
We are back from our unexpected hiatus, taken because a certain someone forgot to mention that he would be voyaging off to Internetless Hills for a couple of weeks. Now he’s recovering from a medical procedure and all loopy on drugs. Speaking of drugs, Jaz has an acid flashback (but not the kind you’re thinking of), and reminisces about life on the commune, which isn’t exactly how mainstream media depicts it.
Bill tells us more about his pending new place of employment, the hotly anticipated Florence Pie Bar. Jaz talks about New Century Theatre’s fantastic production of Anne Washburn’s Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play, running through Saturday, August 8th. Definitely go see it. Plus, Bill learns a new word that Jaz definitely did not make up.
