Home Grown gives you a show that makes white supremacists throw up! First, Estela Knott and Dave Berzonsky from LUA do their best impressions of ethnomusicologists when talking about their ongoing attempts to explore and bring together Mexican, Appalachian, South American, and Jewish roots music. (Oh, and they play a couple of songs too!) Then writer Amanda Korman returns to the show — this time in her role as Communications and Outreach Coordinator for The Women’s Initiative. They are currently accepting submissions for their Challenge into Change Writing Contest, and to that end, Amanda brings by Aerial Perkins, winner of last year’s contest to read her winning essay, “Pretty Brown Girl” on the air. Your hosts Clinton Johnston and Leslie M. Scott-Jones try to take a page from Aerial and not “put fear on the table” all 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.
