Home Grown: Back to the Present: Angels in America from ShenanArts and DJ Bovay

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David talks to two sets of guests about a classic of modern theater and about the classics of Hip-Hop. First, actors Clarence Finn, Gretchen York, and Jacquie Patteson come to us from Staunton, where ShenanArts is putting on a production of Angels in America: Millennium Approches. We talk to Jacquie, Gretchen, and Clarence about what it means for them to do this iconic play and what it means for ShenanArts to do it. Next, we welcome DJ Bovay to the show for the first time. He’s spinning an all-vinyl, pre-2000 Hip-Hop show at Holly’s Diner. We talk to him about his dedication to vinyl and the need to keep knowledge of Hip-Hop’s history alive. Two groups dip back into the 80s and 90s to make sense of today 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.
