Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, It’s an entire show dedicated to two poets — the first place runner-up and the winner of the 2019 Jefferson-Madison Regional Library / WriterHouse Adult Poetry Contest. First, Clay Moldenhauer reads his poem “Make Fire”, then winner Ronald Berube reads from his poem “A Differential Calculus of My Feelings”. We talk to both Clay and Ronald about these individual pieces as well as about their thoughts on poetry, in general. Are their poems meant to be heard? Read? Both? What’s the role of the reader? How do they attack wrting poems? This Sunday we increase the piece (See what we did there?) on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown is heard on 94.7 WPVC the Progressive Voice of Charlottesville, Sundays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.

A Charlottesville native, he’s just back in town from living in California and he’s taking the first steps towards getting a music career on track. David talks to KG about beginnings and we listen to his first single. Next Ty Cooper returns to the show. After years of documentary filmmaking, he’s attempting his first narrative film project. David and Ty talk about his conception for the work, the need to be cruel in writing, and about some of the ins and outs of filming your work. Every piece of art has a moment when it starts, and we’re here to talk about those moments just as we talk about finished pieces on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, it’s Leslie and David and one set of guests for one whole show. FellowMan and Remy St. Claire return! They were here when they started it. They were here when they brought it back. Now, it’s year three, and it’s still going strong — 2019 Nine Pillars Cultural Hip Hop Fest!!! We talk about what and who’s the same and what and who’s different this year. We also talk about anything else that comes into our heads: community representation; financial support of artists, and the question of “the Charlottesville Sound.” Local art makes the community, shakes the community, sometimes even rakes the community, but it only ever builds and never breaks the community, and you can hear about it here on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown is heard on 94.7 WPVC the Progressive Voice of Charlottesville, Sundays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David is back and riding solo with a duet of guest duos. First J. Taylor and Tanya K. Manwill visit the show. Both are designers for Live Arts’ upcoming production of The Book of Will. David talks to J. about how he approaches set design in general and what he has done with the set to Book of Will in particular.

Tim and Brittany talk about the joy of poetry and prepare us for this year’s Poem in Your Pocket Day and Poetry on the Steps events.
