Think about it… When was the last time you sat down next to someone you didn’t know at all, and started up a conversation? But, like, a REAL conversation, one which you knew would go on for 90 minutes come hell or high water, and would be entirely about ANYTHING which came up?
Alright, now, multiply that by two, so you’ve got four people talking at once, take away the syntactical element of ‘talking’ (which seems to be so very ‘in play’ during this campaign season), get away from the politics and rhetoric, plug into the board, take instruments in hand, and you have a lovely gathering of minds at WBCR Studios in Great Barrington, MA today at 3pm with the details as printed below.
Yours truly is feeling a little under the weather but will happily be making the trip for this extraordinary conversation, and I’m really looking forward to it. You can join us in real time by tuning in at BerkshireRadio.org or at 97.7 fm if you’re in the area!
