In this Lehigh Valley Arts Salon, the topic is the art of brewing, as will be on display in its many facets in the inaugural Lehigh Valley Beer Week, starting Feb 11. Host Bill Dautremont-Smith will talk with LVBW organizer Jesse Albertson about its origination, and in particular will review and highlight some of the numerous events, such as special cask-conditioned beer tastings, meet the brewer evenings, and beer pairing dinners.
On this program the topic is TEACH Rwanda. Co-hosts John Pearce and Ray Schwab interview the co-founders of this organization, Janet Brown and Cindy Grieshaber. The Country Director, James Iyamuremye, will also join us. TEACH Rwanda provides teacher education and children's enrichment to schools in Rwanda. Join us for an enlightening discussion about an area of the world many of us know too little about. (Original air date January 31, 2013.)
With the national holiday celebrating the life of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., just days away, Alan Jennings will turn the attention of listeners to the civil rights movement. Sheila Michaels, a veteran of the civil rights movement who worked for SNCC (Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee) and CORE (Congress for Racial Equality) in the early 1960's, knew and worked with some of the top leaders of the movement and has been featured among the movement's leaders in social history archives kept by various universities.
