After planting seeds on the last episode, a new “Garden Path” heads back to Brookwood Community Farm to explore how the seedlings are taken from the greenhouse to the soil. In the second of a three-part series taking a look inside this local agricultural operation, viewers can learn all about techniques for staving off early-season frost, what gets planted when and how exactly volunteers are able to sow entire fields with their bare hands. Get the low down on where your food comes from when this program airs Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. and Friday, Saturday, Sunday at 11 a.m., all on the Public channel.
A trio of world-class musicians, comprising the cello, piano and violin, recently played a classical concert at the library. The name of the group is Trio Spirito, and one of its members, Loren Peason, teaches violin in the Milton Public Schools. Some truly fine music was played at this intimate concert, which includes some commentary from the performers as well. Catch it during Music Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. on the Public channel.
John Radosta recently published a book titled “Bob Dylan in Performance: Song, Stage and Screen.” He also happens to be an English teacher at Milton High School. “You’ve Got To Have Art” host Jeff Stoodt was able to bring the author to sit down for a chat about Dylan, particularly about the enigmatic singer’s unique vocal style, using his live performance to expand understanding of what the artist is attempting to accomplish. Any Dylan fan will find this discussion intriguing, and it is currently airing Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays at 1 p.m. as well as Thursdays at 4 p.m., all on the Public channel.
MAC Open Mic regular Eric “The Snake” Gulliksen was the featured performer at the May installment of this monthly musical potpourri. A member of Orpheus, the popular rock group of the 1960s and 70s, he brought some serious star power to the stage, mixing in with many other regulars and a few new faces. Take a listen when it airs during Music Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. on the Public channel.
