12 Noon Deb Guhl – Interview Discussing Urban Gun Violence
On Saturday, March 16, 2013, Deb Guhl welcomed in the studio Barbara Tinney, Executive Director of the New Haven Family Alliance, Andrew Woods, Executive Director of Hartford Communities That Care and Kenny Jackson, Director of Beacon Mentoring Programs in Bridgeport to discuss gun violence in large to mid-size cities. Barbara, Andrew and Kenny have begun to work together to discuss the reality of urban violence including gun violence through the spectrum of public health and ways to partner together to address it. We discussed the work each organization is doing in their community and then the collaboration they are pursuing together.
1 PM Jazz And Standards: Malcolm C. Dankner

4:05: Interview with Alexandra Horowitz about her book “On Looking.” Alexandra Horowitz’s brilliant On Looking: Eleven Walks with Expert Eyes shows us how to see the spectacle of the ordinary—to practice, as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle put it, “the observation of trifles.” On Looking is structured around a series of eleven walks the author takes, mostly in her Manhattan neighborhood, with experts on a diverse range of subjects, including an urban sociologist, the well-known artist Maira Kalman, a geologist, a physician, and a sound designer.
5:00: Interview with Laura Clarke from New Haven’s SITE projects, Have you heard about New Haven’s nighttime rainbow that will be seen in the sky in late April? The latest SITE project will bring Yvette Mattern’s rainbow installation to New Haven April 24 through 27. SITE is having a fundraiser on March 24 at BAR on Crown Street in New Haven with music by Sun Dagger and Fake Babies. By the way, the folks at SITE are the same people who installed the wonderful “Square with Four Circles” by Felice Varini several years ago in Temple Plaza in New Haven.
5:30: Marlow Shami will be joining me. Marlow is musician Nancy Tucker’s manager, and I met her through organizing WPKN’s Speaking of Women event. She is also an artist who has a solo show up in the UCONN Brick Wall Exhibition Space and Whitson Gallery (Torrington Campus) — up until April 10th. The title is Homelands:The Personal and Collective Landscape Explored how dreams, senses, and the natural world collaborate in making the invisible visible.
