Grateful Dread Public Radio is trying out a creative experiment: taking its Green Tea Radio Show where the people are. The program, a potpourri of local news, weather, and event info plus progressive news features, is being produced in coffee shops and other sites around Music City. Will it work? We shall see. Listen: It airs weekdays at 4 am, 8 am, and 4 pm. Tell us what you think.
Friday’s cuppa Green Tea Radio comes from Starbucks West End; the host says the fireplace is a major draw.
On tap, local events:
Today, Nashville is the site of a rally to mark Fur-Free Friday, the international protest against the fur industry. Demo details can be found here: Nashville Animal Advocacy Meetup. The protest will be at noon in front of Regency Furs 4113 Hillsboro Pike.
On Saturday, as part of the Global Climate March, Nashvillians will rally at 10 am at Sally Beaman Park in Green Hills, at the corner of Graybar Lane and Benham Avenue. At 11 am, a march takes place around the Green Hills shopping area. Nashville Peace Calendar offers some important tips for marchers, and you can get all kinds of details at the Facebook events page.
As for Green Tea Radio’s Friday edition: It will have your Music City weather forecast, the Daily Consumer Report, labor headlines from Workers Independent News, Thanksgiving leftovers from pundit Jim Hightower and Laura Erickson’s For the Birds, and much more, including a new rotating report from Unusual Sources, a Canadian news show that gives insight into the recent news of Turkey shooting down a Russian plane.
