Davisville, 9/1/14: Wendy Weitzel, chronicler of Davis business

Wendy Weitzel has reported the arrivals and exits of Davis businesses in her “Comings & Goings” column in the Davis Enterprise since 2001. It's one of the paper's most-read items, and a good place to track the retail enthusiasms that wax and wane in town, from pizza to frozen yogurt. Sometimes she also gets to break a story that isn't a story -- like this past spring, when she helped debunk an online prank that claimed a dance club was going to open on G Street. On today's show, she discusses how she works.

Live in the Loam

LIVE IN THE LOAM is our NEW pop-up show featuring touring and local artists who are playing in and around Davis. It's a "pop-up" as it doesn't have a fixed position in our on-air schedule; Live in the Loam airs based on the artists' availability.

JAZZ after Dark - A real local weekly treat

Jazz after Dark (with Don Shor) is a laid back musical weekly journey into the sounds of jazz.  Its hard to explain this show in a sentence or two so just take a look at the March 25th show write up "Jazz across five decades tonight. Some sax by Sam Butera, Paul Gonsalvez, Johnny Hodges, and Gerry Mulligan. Piano by Thelonious Monk, Vince Guaraldi, and Butch Thompson. Vocals by Etta Jones, and Ella Fitzgerald. And a special thank-you to Toots Thielemans, 91 years old, as he retires after 65 years of jazz harmonica and whistling!"
