Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, we talk to artists from two very different plays. First, local pastor Xavier Jackson from Chapman Grove Baptist Church visits the show. He’s part of the cast of Justice on Trial: Black Lives Matter Too and talks about what it’s been like to be part of a show that’s Broadway bound. Next, we greet a trio of artists from Live Arts’ current production of Sweet Charity. Director, Maria Reiff, Musical Director Kristin Baltes, and Costume Designer Miriam Halpern grace our airwaves to give us the ins and outs of bringing a 1966 musical about taxi dancers to life on our town’s favorite small stage. It’s another theater double shot on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Blokes on the Bench host Andy Richardson and the rest of the blokes discuss this weekend’s action,which started on Monday with a thriller of a match with Brighton taking on Stoke at the Amex stadium, then the weekend games kicked off with West Ham taking on Leicester city at the London Stadium, where at least David Moyes managed to nick a draw, and therefore a point! Yay West Ham! Spurs had an odd game by drawing at Wembley Stadium against the mighty West Bromwich, Swansea played Bournemouth for a draw, Watford came to St James’ park, and done over Newcastle proper! Manchester United continue their run of exciting football by beating Brighton 1-0, Crystal Palace beat Stoke at Salhurst park, Liverpool drew with Chelsea with a pretty even game, Southampton do over Everton, who continue to look like an out of control dumpster fire, Burnley fall at the last second to Arsenal at Turf Moor, and then finally Huddersfield put up a brave fight, but fail to stop the unstoppable Manchester City at John Smiths Stadium. All these games plus our Twitter polls, and Alex’s car alarm going off! It was a busy week of results to get through!

The blokes are Andy Richardson, Mark Coffman, Alex Gomaa, Christian Galdencio and Daniel Rothamel.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, our man Greg Brown returns and brings the guitar phatness!. He’s got so many irons in the fire we almost confused him for a blacksmith. We take the entire hour to talk about a bunch of his projects — everything from his previous post-cancer rock project Chemobrain to his classical CD Wanderings that he releases 11/17/17 to January’s Chemobrain follow up Another Dose to next year’s thrash metal project Age of Fire. We talk about Greg’s creative process, his inspriations, his multiple genre personality, and more. On top of it all, we play tracks from many of his projects, and even have Greg playing live. If you don’t like music, you need to come back for another episode. For the rest of us, our only regret is that Greg didn’t bring his ukelele. It’s Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.
