Today on Home Grown, Clinton is left to flounder as one of two scheduled guests doesn’t show and as Leslie and David are out. Fortunately, our first guest is as dependable as she is delightful.

She returns to the show to talk about the free, weekly, lunchtime concert series for the month of May that she originated — Bach’s Lunch — now in it’s 30th year!

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, Leslie returns … well, most of her. She seems to have misplaced her voice, but she and David soldier on! Cliff Garstang joins us from over the mountain. He’s the founder of SWAG – The Staunton, Waynesboro, and Augusta Group of the Virginia Writer’s Club and the organizer of a poetry reading at Black Swan Books & Music. We talk to Cliff about what makes this reading (during National Poetry Month) special, and he talks about the importance of artists having a community to work with. Then, Charlottesville painter Frank Walker comes on the show and utterly beguiles us. He has a joint portraiture show with Jae Jae Johnson called Visage at New City Arts. So we start to talk to Frank about portraiture and very quickly move on to talk about the nature of art. It’s all art / no snobbery here on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

With a 3-2 win over Sparta 20/20 this weekend, we discussed Champions League and the shocking exit of Barcelona at the hands of Roma. Also, Liverpool knocking out Manchester City.

Who’s going down? Wolverhampton Wanderers have been promoted to join the top flight next season. And lastly, Mark’s dislike of EPL referee Michael Oliver and where does Arsenal go from here after losing 2-3 Newcastle United. All this and more on this weekend’s Blokes on the Bench.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David soldiers on alone in a unique Home Grown that welcomes two sets of guests together for the entire hour. It’s Virginia Wawner, James Sanford, and Kerry Moran from Live Arts Theater’s upcoming show Hand to God and also Jonathan Karns, Victoria Clement, and Frank Saxon from Four County Players’ upcoming show Avenue Q. Both shows use puppets, and puppets are topic of conversation — designing them, acting with them, acting opposite them, respecting them, and loving them. It’s a collection of puppet masters you can love even in your tin foil hat on this week’s Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David and Leslie welcome two sets of impressive artists to our airwaves. First, studiomates Peneople Stone and Esther visit the show for the first time. Penelope is an experieced urban forager who uses her talents to make easter eggs with natual dyes. Esther works exclusively in matzah. They talk about their work and their working relationship and about what they are doing artistically to celebrate Eastover. Next, we’re pleased and wowed to have Charlottesville’s favorite artistic son, Duncan MacMhunna, well known and lauded for his wax sculptures of B-List stars. David and Leslie fight through being starstruck to ask Duncan about his process, his vision, and his keen eye for a celebrity on the rise and on the fall. (Andy rumors that our guests are actually Jessie Conover & Marjory Ruderman from Big Blue Door’s Feminine Hijinks Improv and Andy Davis from Bent Theatre Comedy Improv are foolish and falacious.) It’s April Fools Day on this week’s 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.
