We welcome back old friend of the show Adam Novitt, recently named Director of the Lilly Library in Florence, to talk about the value of libraries…and whatever else he wants to talk about; conversations with Adam always take unexpected and delightful turns. We also note the passing of two beloved and respected area residents.
Another week, another example of cops behaving badly. Meanwhile, here in Northampton, we’re fortunate to have a choice between two progressive, community-minded officers as finalists for our Chief of Police. We also have a choice of some very cool looking benches, thanks to some community-minded youth.
Coming up this weekend, catch Bill, Jaz, and a bunch of other fun and talented folk in Life in the (413), an evening of radio plays and music celebrating our favorite part of the state. We also talk about a woman on the cover of a magazine.
Bill reviews some of the latest hot button issues, according to the comments on Facebook. Meanwhile, can Mayor Narkewicz convince Smith College President Kathleen McCartney to agree to a PILOT program? Jaz has some ideas to spice up the negotiations, and maybe even raise more money.
Also, Bill has a very important announcement.
We’re back from an unexpected two week hiatus! Bill reviews the new Mad Max movie, MRA’s, the state of Indiana, and cynics, all while trying to survive our pollen-choked, tick-infested, public-art-afflicted dystopian hellscape. Join us, won’t you?
