Open Source RVA presents:

SHAKESPEARE, SCOTCH & REASON! On Friday’s episode of Open Source RVA on WRIR 97.3 FM, host Don Harrison talks with Jan Powell and James Ricks from the Quill Theatre company about the 19th Annual Shakespeare Festival at Agecroft Hall starting in June, and the company’s continued branching out into contemporary work like the current production of David Ives’ The Heir Apparent, running through April 29 at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The Source also showcases another installment of our new political roundtable segment, Scotch & Reason. This time, correspondent Don Mears is joined on the mic by Caroline Orr — you know her best as @RVAwonk — and political pundit and blogger Shaun Kenney. And these are exciting times at WRIR! We also welcome audio documentarian Jon Harper, who talks about his documentary on the life and career of legendary disc jockey Carol Taylor (Open Source RVA will air Jon’s special in two parts starting next week). All of that PLUS the WRIR pledge drive officially starts after the Source concludes — please take a moment and pledge at 804-622-9747.
