It’s that time again! The DC Stage Fair is back, and organizer Kish Rusek stops by the studio to talk about the events, the contests, and all the fun for the day (https://dcstatefair.org/). We also catch up with Casey from Good Food Markets for all the latest news and produce. (http://www.goodfoodmarkets.com/)
#DeNews kicks us off with a story about Philip Reid – a slave that worked on the Statue of Freedom that adorns the top of the Capitol Building. Then we welcome Marla Bilonik, Executive Director of the Latino Economic Development Center (http://www.ledcmetro.org), and Darryl Maxwell, of the DC Bar Pro Bono Legal Program (http://www.dcbar.org/for-the-public/help-for-small-businesses/) for small businesses. Together, these organizations provide a wealth of services for small business owners in all stages of growth. And of course we check in with Casey from Good Food Markets (http://www.goodfoodmarkets.com/) to hear all about what’s new at the market this week. Listen now!
We start off the hour with #DeNews – and it’s kind of a spooky story! Next, Amanda Blythe from Dance Place visits with us about this amazing community institution. Last but not least, we’re joined by Philip Sambol from Good Food Markets, and he fills us in on their Senior Delivery Program. Tune in now for all the details.
We’re testing out a new segment for RIA Radio: DeNews! Community member and historian Aaron DeNu gives 3-minute snippets of history that happened right here in Ward 5. He also performs DeNews at Open Mic Night at The Public Option on Thursday evenings! Casey from Good Food Markets calls in to talk about the new things happening at the market – think fall flavors! Then we chat with Anthony Dihle, the creative mind behind Victory Dance Creative. Based in Edgewood, Anthony creates a variety of graphic design products, including the popular DC Neighborhood Poster Project. He’ll have lots to choose from at Fall Fest, so stop by and see his work. Listen now to learn more!
