WAMC Launches New Instagram Video Series: A Face For Radio Hosted by Sarah LaDuke
WAMC will be introducing a new series of arts interviews called “A Face for Radio Video Series” on the WAMCRadio Instagram account led by Sarah LaDuke, the Producer of The Roundtable and The Book Show on WAMC. These interviews will be held on Instagram live for anyone to view from the comfort of their own home, so don’t forget to tune in!
In lieu of the circumstances surrounding the current situation regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, The Roundtable Panel has been prioritizing news on current events with the Roundtable Panel, the Congressional Corner, and updates on the Coronavirus.
The Roundtable Panel normally discusses current events from 9 to 10:50 a.m. featuring WAMC President, CEO, and Political Commentator Alan Chartock, The Roundtable and Book Show host Joe Donahue and a rotating team of panelists. This is then followed by the Congressional Corner where Alan speaks with members of the U.S. Congress, Senate, or a political scientist or pollster.
The 11 to noon hour of the show usually features assorted interviews and segments; frequently spotlighting artists and arts organizations in and beyond our region. The last hour of our show has been dedicated to essential updates regarding the Coronavirus from New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Joe’s other interviews feature not-for-profits that are helping people cope with these uncertain and confusing times and experts and authors who talk about assorted serious topics related to COVID-19 or other serious issues.
While during this time there has been an increased emphasis on current events, politics, and news on the Corona Virus, our friends in the Arts have seemed to slip off the radar. However, not for much longer as we welcome “A Face for Radio Video Series.”
While a regular schedule has not yet been decided, each interview will be promoted on WAMC’s social media accounts as they are confirmed. So stay tuned for more information regarding these interviews.
WAMC has already successfully launched its first live stream on Thursday, April 16 at 1 p.m and their first guest was Pioneer Valley-based musician, writer, and producer Erin McKeown.
Other upcoming guests include Broadway’s Kate Baldwin, Jason Daniely, Graham Rowat, and Elizabeth Stanley, co-founder of the Brooklyn Raga Massive Neel Murgai, musician and producer McQueen, singer-songwriter Billy Keane, music director Dan Pardo, writer Sam Anderson, representatives from The Berkshire International Film Festival, MASS MoCA, The Mopco Improv Theater, Munson Williams Proctor Arts Institute, PS21 Chatham, Troy Foundry Theatre, and The Woodstock Film Festival.
