Open Source RVA presents:

OPEN SOURCE RVA LOVES THE CHILDREN! On today’s Open Source RVA, airing at noon on WRIR, host Don Harrison talks about the meals tax hike (and related issues) with non-profit leader Brian Ross Cannon (pictured), a strong proponent for Mayor Levar Stoney’s proposal to raise the city’s meals tax to help fund new school construction (the measure gets voted on Monday, Feb. 12). Speaking of schools, co-host Dina Weinstein talks with Sarah Gross, President of the Virginia PTA and an RPS parent, about the state of the state PTA, and how pro-education voters can effectively lobby state legislators at the General Assembly. We also present a “hurried and rushed” special edition of the Quick and Dirty Council Roundup, brought to you by Melissa Vaughn and Jessee Perry of RVA Dirt, and we’ve got a new installment of Curtain Call, our bi-weekly look at Richmond’s theatre happenings, produced by the Richmond Theatre Critics Circle. This time, the panel welcomes a new member, Julinda Lewis, and she joins Jerry Williams and Rich Griset to review “Corpus Christi” from Richmond Triangle Players, and TheatreLab’s “I’m Gonna Pray For You So Hard.” GET YOUR SOURCE ON! Friday at noon on WRIR 97.3 FM!
