This week’s show is shaping up to be a multiple-guest format like we haven’t done before. And it’s still not done sifting down. Excitin’!
Amie Walter will be in the studio to talk about a local fundraiser against elephant poaching in Africa — a safari-style social at the Windham Antique Center followed by a screening of the movie Out Of Africa starring Redford and Streep at the Bellows Falls Opera House, coming up on April 24. You can do one or the other or both, and the funds go to two outstanding organizations fighting this problem: the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, and the Wildlife Conservation Society.
Around 7:30 we’ll be getting a call from Jocie Adams, who’ll be giving a concert with her band Arc Iris at the Windham Ballroom on Saturday, April 5. Jocie was in the critically acclaimed band Low Anthem during their breakout years, then in 2013 chose to shift her focus to Arc Iris… an eclectic and compelling doozy, pulling together ’70s pop, folk, country, cabaret, jazz, and classical music. Jocie is a singer, multi-instrumentalist, composer, and former NASA researcher.
Late in the show we may be getting a call (or may not; she’s on a tight schedule and is going to try to carve out the time) from Anne Macksoud, the filmmaker behind The Wisdom to Survive: Climate Change, Capitalism & Community which will be screening at Stone Church Arts on Friday, April 4. “Climate change is here. Will we have the wisdom to survive? The film features thought leaders and activists in the realms of science, economics and spirituality discussing how we can evolve and take action in the face of climate disruption. The film includes interviews with activists Bill McKibben, Joanna Macy, Roger Payne, Herschelle Milford, Quincy Saul, and more.”
