Davisville, 8/18/14: Taming Davis’ annual mass move-out

Late each August, thousands of college students move in and out of apartments all over town. The mass move generates piles of cast-offs that students no longer want—furniture, clothes and housewares, but also unexpected stuff like anime, Ikea furniture and gift cards—and could turn the city into one big sloppy flea market if the volume got out of control. For 15 years, the city has organized the Apartment Move-Out Waste Reduction Program to tame the tide. Today Jennifer Gilbert, the city’s conservation coordinator, and Marisa Schafer, one of the volunteers who make it work, discuss how it all comes together, the need for semi-secrecy ... and the things people leave behind.

OUR PROGRAMS

Aggressively Progressive

Live Wednesday 10-11am
Replays Thursday 11pm-Friday 12am

DJ(s): 

An hour of progressive metal and its influences--from the experimental prog of the 70s to the extreme metal of the 21st century--Daniel takes you on a tour through one of the most technical, energetic, and diverse genres of rock music.

That's Life

Live Thursday 1-2pm
Replays Sunday 2-3pm

DJ(s): 

Sometimes interviews with local folks. It might be about work, or life choices, or philosophy, or history. Sometimes birding, or art, or other passions. Or about local activities, groups, or events.  It's rarely about politics, and it never includes shouting! When there's no guest, it's laid-back music.  Oldies or Hawaiian or Mom's 1940s songs--whatever feels right that day.

If you have a suggestion for a guest or topic, feel free to phone me at 758-5058 (8am-8pm).

Jazz After Dark

Live Tuesday 8-9pm
Replays Monday 10-11pm, Saturday 9-10pm

DJ(s): 

20th-century jazz--each show featuring instrumental and vocal jazz, usually presented in historical sequence. Occasionally contemporary, sometimes much older selections, lots from the 1940s to the 1980s. Some big band and swing, lots of cool jazz and West Coast, some fusion, a little bebop. Usually some boogie woogie, blues, bossa nova. Always something by Ella.
