Tune at 7 pm Monday and 1 pm Tuesday for local and national news and analysis with Barry Summers, Veronika Gunter, and David Lynch. Special guest co-host: Scrutiny Hooligans Gordon Smith. Allison McGehee of Quality Forward tells us about this week’s Clean Up and how this neighborhood-based campaign also tackles the big environmental problems. We may cover the Parkside development, Asheville-Buncombe Clean Up, Why Spitzer was targeted for a takedown, and David’s blog.
We’ll be repeating last week’s show with Jonathan Williams. We’ve repeated shows before, usually when something’s gone haywire with the station’s automatic archiving system, and the show hasn’t uploaded properly to the server from which it streams and downloads. This week … well, Sebastian’s in Seattle, and I’ve been busy with Robert Bly’s performance last night and workshop today, and at show time Sunday, I’ll be recording Kay Byer, North Carolina’s Poet Laureate, giving a reading at the Asheville Art Museum. So.
The show we’ll be repeating features Jonathan’s May, 2005, reading from Jubilant Thicket at Sylva’s City Lights Books, and it probably won’t hurt anyone to hear it again. In fact, listen to those meta-fours again, and see if they aren’t even better the second time around. The man could be subtle and very very dry, after all.
Production notes are over at NatureS.
The upside: we’ve got what looks to be a good recording of Bly’s fine, plugged-in performance with Free Planet Radio Friday night, and a half- hour interview from Saturday afternoon as well.
Back next week with a new show, promise.
Update: Oh, yeah: if you ever want to get in touch with the Wordplay team, just drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org

You heard it here first: Remember how pissed you were when you heard that Buncombe County had sold park land to a private developer in November of 2006? Did then-Asheville Director of Planning and Development Scott Shuford KNOW IN ADVANCE that this outrageous giveaway was in the works? Download the relevant PDF here (scroll down to page 10-12). We’ll have a discussion, you bet!
Also, David will talk about World Water Day, and um, water. He’ll also wade into the gushing font of cynical disregard flowing out of the front of Dick Cheney’s head. So?
