Sunday Morning Wake-up Call host Rick Moore talks with Barbara Adams, Environmental Activist and Kirk Bowers, Sierra Club Pipeline Specialist about the Atlantic Coast Pipeline.

According to Adams and Bowers, the proposed pipeline will be 42 inches in diameter, requiring excavation of an 8 to 12-foot-deep trench and the bulldozing of a 125-foot-wide construction corridor straight up and down multiple steep-sided forested mountains. The pipeline will require construction of heavy-duty transport roads and staging areas for large earth-moving equipment and pipeline assembly along with blasting through bedrock, and excavation through streams and wetlands.

The Charlottesville Podcasting Network is very pleased to announce that we have partnered with Live Arts Radio to bring you original radio drama from Charlottesville’s top playwrights. In the weeks and months to come, we will bring you original radio dramas written by members of the Playwright’s Lab and performed by Charlottesville actors. Our second episode is a dark parody of a classic American story, what happens when the audience tunes out, the laughter fades but the characters are left behind. No Man is a Gilligan’s Island was written by Peter Gunter.

No Man is a Gilligan’s Island was made possible by the following talented men and women:

Tom Howard (The Skipper) is an actor, singer (baritone), MC and voice/on-camera narrator. In the past, he has worked at Montpelier (James Madison’s Home) and has done government and military work at the Pentagon and in Germany, Texas, Washington (state), Arizona and Maryland.
Harold Langsam (Gilligan) is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Virginia. He has been appearing on area stages since 1998. Last year he appeared as Doc Gibbs in “Our Town” at Four County Players.
Peter Gunter (Playwright). In addition to working in academia, PR, advertising and journalism, Peter Gunter has been writing plays since college. He has had several plays produced in New York City and in Charlottesville, and has been a member of the Live Arts Playwrights’ Lab since 2007.
Nathan Anderith (Director, Co-Founder) has been directing, acting and producing theater for 18 years, from Shakespeare on the Lawn at UVA to drama groups in West Africa. His favorite part of putting together these podcasts is doing his sexy radio voice for the intro and outro.
Sean Michael McCord (Co-Founder) is a Charlottesville-based playwright, producer, director, and occasional actor. Once upon a time, he was radioactive. He is currently an MFA Playwright at the Hollins Playwrights’ Lab in Roanoke.
Alex Citron, (Co-Founder, Facilitator of the Playwrights’ Lab) has been a member of the Lab since 2002. He has worked in theater for over forty-five years, as an actor, director, producer, set designer and stage manager. Of the seventeen plays he has written, six have been produced by companies in California, Texas, New York and Virginia. From 2005 until its closing in 2014, Alex was Executive Director of Play On, a Charlottesville community theater.
Cory Capron (Music Composer) has written three full-length plays and several shorts, directed and co-directed several shows, and worked in props, sound, costume and creature design. He is a founding member of Gorilla Theater Productions, where he has worked as house composer on many productions. Outside the theater, Cory is a short story author, a singer-songwriter, and occasionally an experimental filmmaker.

The Live Arts Playwrights’ Lab is a free forum for writers of every experience level, in which they share, read, hear, and discuss their work in a community of fellow playwrights. The Lab is dedicated to developing the work of local writers in a fun, creative, supportive setting; and includes opportunities for public staged readings and full productions. The Lab meets on the first and third Monday of each month (except July and August). Whether you’ve been writing for years or are just getting started, there’s a place for you in the Lab! Visit Live Arts The Foundry for more information.

Post production work for No Man is a Gilligan’s Island was done by Dan Gould at the Charlottesville Podcasting Network.
