Public Radio...what! what!

Carl Kasell. Garrison Keilor. Eye on the Sky. Sound familiar? If yes,then congratulations, you are a nerd. A VPR nerd, that is. zing. No,but seriously, it’s cool, there are a lot of us, whether we admit it ornot.  I mean, come on, there’s nothing like waking up to the beautifulvoice of Renée Montagne in the morning, or doing homework to VPRClassical or Jazz with George Thomas…not that I would know or anything.

If you understand/are getting seriously turned on by my name-dropping,have I got a something for you! Saturday, September 20, VPR is throwinga listener picnic at the adorable UVM Morgan Horse Farm in Weybridge.With a special appearance by Tom Ashbrook, host of On Point, music byBanjo Dan and the Mid-Nite Plowboys and Mike Martin and Trio Gusto, ANDa giant mug give-away, it is guaranteed to be a great time. Plus,admission is free…perfect for the college student budget!
