This is not your average summer theatre “Best Bets” segment, I promise you. Larry Murray, founder and editor of Berkshire on Stage (among many other cultural connections) and Gail Burns, author of “Gail Sez” (ditto), start out with their forecasts for how the wind will blow across the boards in the Berkshires this season. Then, the conversation bends toward some of the big, really big, issues, affecting the vitality of the arts both at home and across the country. Keep Reading

Wicked short show today. That’s because we’ve been busy with our plans for world domination. No! We didn’t just say that! We meant that we’ve been busy building our new video instruction series “PRO-FUSION.” These sponsored tutorials teach us how to do the home and personal tasks that the pros make look easy! Check out our first installment, hosted by Chad Therrien of Mt. Williams Greenhouses on State Road in North Adams.

I love this episode. Not only do we have two fantastic guests AND massively powerful indie music mojo, but this is the episode where I figure out some critical truths about how to engineer the show so that we have time for everything we want to hear. Probably, this means that indie music is going to get it’s own show next week. For now, enjoy an hour and a half or so of exceptional Internet audio goodness. As always, a great time co-hosted by Tela Zasloff, founder and editor of the Greylock Independent.

No music this week…We had to make room for some of those in-depth interviews we’re getting famous for. Don’t worry. We have some GREAT new music for you over on our Arts & Culture podcast, “Will Call.” What we do have is the Audio iBeat with Tammy Daniels from iBerkshires, as well as the Weekend Lowdown with Berkshire Family Focus Founder, Kelly McIlquam. Two great guests: North Adams Mayor, the Honorable Richard J. Alcombright explains the city’s designation of this week as Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week, and Paul Harsch of Harsch Associates joins us for the Berkshire Business Outlook.

A tremendous head and chest cold struck this week, so I offer my apologies for the obvious snuffliness. A very busy Tammy Daniels, managing editor of iBerkshires took time out from coverage of the Clarksburg State Forest fire to co-host another segment of the audio “iBeat.” Kelly Bevan McIlquham of Berkshire Family Focus, is back from vacation, though she may have left some of her brain in Fla… We speak with Jonah Sykes of the Berkshire United Way about the free screening of “Let’s Talk about Sex” that helps focus attention on the issue of the pregnancy rates among teens in the Berkshires. And of course, there is music…

This episode contains a double dose of interviews featuring a leader of an arts/culture organization with an ability to see the big picture of the future of the arts in northern Berkshire County. Both women, Jessica Sweeney of the Common Folk Artists Collective, and Jennifer Crowell, of the Berkshire Cultural Resource Center, can put their fingers on how the arts will fuel various types of regional growth for years to come. We are treated to top-shelf tunes this week, thanks to Winterpills, The Sun Parade, and Wishbone Zoë.
