Oh, you thought St. Patrick’s Day was over? Think again, my friend. St. Patrick’s Day is not over until Holyoke SAYS it’s over. With a parade. Also, if you missed Bill in last weekend’s 24 Hour Theatre Project, well…let’s just say you missed out on something special. REALLY special.
It’s that magical time of year when the mud and potholes migrate back to our area. Bill and Jaz discuss their exciting weekend plans, and our friend Bill Scher explains the shenanigans going down in DC.
We talk to Northampton Ward 3 City Councilor Ryan O’Donnell about his proposal to limit campaign donation amounts. Jaz pays tribute to the late Leonard Nimoy by telling a story about how Spock played a pivotal role in her life.
