The International Women's Day celebration will come with a touch of the bittersweet as it marks the final scheduled appearance for Canary Burton on our airwaves. Canary has hosted The Latest Score on Tuesday afternoons for more than a decade and has proudly represented what makes community radio so great. Not only has she brought attention to a broad spectrum of contemporary composers that would otherwise be unknown to most of our listeners, she has infused her shows with a sense of humor typified by the "Dump Day" episodes where she would play her recent acquisitions from the local swap shop. We are accepting proposals for Tuesdays from 1-4pm.
Programs come and go like the tides, only less predictable. As we bid adieu to Canary, we welcome
to her new time slot on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month from 9 to midnight. Janice's show "This Time Around" will present music from the great American songbook by such artists as Linda Eder, Marilyn Maye and Michael Ball. Janice is thrilled to settle into a regular spot on the schedule after many years of being a guest host.
As we await the return of even more of our DJs, we are thrilled to have a couple of our number back on the air after unplanned absences. You can once again hear Bernie Hutchens playing his brand of jazz on alternate Tuesdays from 5-8pm (next up on 3/14), and Neil Silberblatt is back to his old ways of cavorting with local poets a couple of Mondays each month at 12:30 (next show on 3/13 features Joe Gouveia Outermost Poetry Contest winner Carrie Koscher).
In other talk show news, you can hear Gene Petraglia chat with Cape Codder sports editor Matt Rice about scholastic sports this Sunday 3/5 at noon while Ira Wood talks about LGBT civil rights in the reign of Trump with attorney Janson Wu on The Lowdown Tuesday 3/7 at 12:30. The following week Ira speaks about The Blood Of Emmett Till with best-selling author Timothy Tyson. The March 8 Women's Day edition of This Place Matters with Susan Lindquist will highlight the Meet Your Local Farmers event with Betsy Osman of E&T Farms. On the 15th Susan will get an update from members of the Brewster Ponds Coalition. Women's Day will also include Pandora Peoples' conversation with her guests about earth-centered education, and that conversation will continue on Thursday morning during the regularly scheduled edition of Healing Wisdom. The week of local chat shows will conclude on Friday morning when The Dune Tramp welcomes local piano impresario John Thomas to the studio to discuss his upcoming season of activities. Of course you can always hear our summary of the week in local headlines on Outer Cape News Fridays at 12:30 and stay on top of the national and international news with the never-fake Democracy Now! each weekday at 4pm.
