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.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, it’s a special First Night Virginia Show, where we talk to two of the acts that you can catch tonight Downtown during the First Night festivities. First, our fast and furious friend of the show Andy Davis from Bent Theatre Comedy Improv returns to the show. We talk about what it’s like to do improv with First Night audiences and talk @#$% about Jeff Sessions and traitor-to-the-people FCC Chairman Ajit Pai. Next, singer-songwriter Chloe Ester visits the show for the first time. She’s a new singer-songwriter, who is nice enough to talk about how she started down that path and how such sad songs can come from such a cheery young person. She also shares a song with us. Remember, even though there’s no booze during First Night, you can always turn our show into a drinking game. We’ll start — drink every time David has to work on Sunday mornings. Speaking of which, welcome to our new guest host, Brandon Lee! Usher in the Georgian calendar new year with 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.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

On today’s Home Grown David and Leslie make a new friend and welcome back a member of the Home Grown family. First, the director of Woody Guthrie’s American Song Bryan Garey (UVA Heritage Summer Theatre Festival) talks about this upcoming show that’s not quite a musical, not quite a play, not quite a concert, but is all about the wonderful and legendary folk pioneer Woody Guthrie and his music. Next, Andy Davis from Bent Theatre Improv triumphantly returns to the show. This time Bent is presenting an 18 hour improv marathon, which may be the closest thing to a Charlottesville comedy festival that the city has seen in awhile. (Then David, Leslie, and Andy fall into an unabashed lovefest.) It’s about one man who listened to the working and the workless and a theatre style all about listening 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 AM to 11 AM.
