The local evening news used to be part of our day. At 6pm we’d sit down to watch TV and get our fill of what’s happening in our city and the world.

A lot has changed since those days, but the names and faces of the anchors who spoke to us every day are as familiar as they have ever been. 

There was recently a reunion of sorts with the Boston WBZ team of Jack Williams, Liz Walker, Bob Lobel, Bruce Schewgler and of course, Arts and Entertainment reporter Joyce Kulhawik, and it was as if no time had passed since we last saw them. 

We ran into Joyce at a YoYoMa Silkroad performance in Cambridge and immediately decided that she needed to come on the show.

Joyce continues to be an advocate for the arts in Boston and also offers her insight and Theater/Movie reviews through her Joyce’s Choices blog. She is a motivational speaker and as a 3 time cancer survivor she has become a tireless crusader against cancer and has raised millions in the support of American Cancer Society's Hope Lodge in Boston that provides cancer patients and their caregivers a free place to stay when their best hope for effective treatment may be in another city.


Episode 094 - Town Meeting

We sat with Luke, Russ and Brendan Condon - three brothers from the Boston band Town Meeting a few weeks ago and it quickly went off the rails.

In between several simultaneous conversations we talked tipping, harmonies, Lavar Burton, acoustic music, playing live for a guy and his dog, the meaning of the word Cajon, podcasts…we were all over the place.

But it was certainly a hoot.

These guys sound great and are amazing live. Enjoy!
