The Punk Rock Farmer talks tomatoes with the pro, Marybeth Janerich of Wasatch Community Gardens, and watering tips with SLC Water Conservation Manager Stephanie Duer on the #UrbanFarmReport. Plus, Arbor Day with Tree Utah, City Nature Challenge with NHMU, #ManyCulturesOneSky with SkyWatcher Leo T, and fresh, homegrown music from Bly Wallentine.
Tonight's lineup with Community Co-Host Aldine Strychnine, KRCL's Punk Rock Farmer, and Lara Jones:
Fresh, homegrown music from Bly Wallentine, "an experimental/psychedelic pop, folk and jazz musician living in Provo, Utah. They have produced records with many Utah musicians at their recording studio, Studio Studio Dada, including Choir Boy, Little Moon, Emily Brown, and Sen Wisher. They released a groovy, wacky, ethereal pop record titled 'The Purpose of Dancing' last year — find it at blywallentine.bandcamp.com or on any streaming service! They will be releasing their next lush, trippy, mind-bending, heart-wrenching pop record titled 'Dizzy Giant' on September 24, 2021. It hits the spot real damn good. They have four cats named Blossom, Phoebe, Marvin and Maude."
To catch up with Bly:
#ManyCulturesOneSky with SkyWatcher Leo T, featuring a spring star map, moon names from Indigenous cultures, Apollo 15 history including Utah's own James Irwin (who graduates from East High School in SLC, Class of 1947), making oxygen on Mars, remembering Apollo 11's Michael Collins, and more.
