He talks about the impact of Coronavirus on his touring schedule, but how the Memphis music community is taking care of each other. Then you’ll get to hear his new single, It’s Gonna Take Some Time.

State Epidemiologist Dr. Angela Dunn with the Utah Department of Health, which earlier today updated Utah’s case count to 112 (102 residents and 10 visitors).

A grassroots group has formed the Salt Lake Valley COVID-19 Mutual Aid Group. RadioACTive spoke with Shandra Benito, just one of the organizers “working to provide assistance [to those] severely impacted by the virus by facilitating transport and provision of basic needs like groceries, prescriptions, and medical supplies.”

Salt Lake City musician Talia Keys is still playing, just not on stage given the global pandemic going on. RadioACTive spoke with her about virtual music lessons, house concerts and the new Venmo life of working musicians.

Alison Einerson gave an update on the Downtown SLC Farmers Market, which is on hiatus for the foreseeable future. Not only was it no longer feasible given new restrictions on mass gatherings, but Wednesday’s earthquake caused significant damage to the Rio Grande Depot where the winter market was held. Einerson said that future markets will be considered on a week-to-week basis. In the meantime, she said you can still order direct from growers and vendors:

  • Handsown Homegrown Vendor Co-op: Veggies, yogurt, microgreens, kombucha, bread, mushroom and more. Online ordering with delivery and discreet pick-up options available from Hand Sown, Cache Canning & Ferments, Bread Riot Bakehouse, Sun River Farm, Intermountain Gourmet Mushrooms, Cru Kombucha, Pomona Produce and Milk Honey
  • Bitters Lab: Online ordering
  • Canyon Meadows Ranch: Online ordering or contact them directly to arrange delivery or pick-up

 

Local retail outlets that are still open and offering local products:

Aldine’s #UrbanFarmReport, featuring Irish horticulturist Peter Donegan. The duo talked about trees and home brewing, as well as hope and gardening in the time of Coronavirus.

RadioACTive Skyped with Tony Holiday to find out how he and his family are doing in Memphis, where they moved about a year ago. Coronavirus has knocked out a U.S. tour in support of his new album, Soul Service. He sent over a copy of his new single, It’s Gonna Take Some Time, to close the show.

  • Vizztone pushed back the release of Tony’s album to July, but you can pre-order it now. Click here. And of course, listen for the new single on KRCL!
