With today's aftershocks that were felt in the WBAI studios, (our building swayed as we were beginning our 2pm broadcast) our wonderfully planned program was put on hold for "safety first" precautions and evacuated the building. The Artsy Fartsy Show team emerged from our dark studios onto the street and felt the sun, the cool breeze, and the the urge to play Summer hooky.
Summer may be nearly over and I don't know about you, but all the early August back-to-school-buy-and-save-us-from-double-dip-recessionnews specials are making me feel like its already after Labor Day.
Go out...! Grab your friends and lovers with a picnic basket of wine and cheese. Tug your comfy blanket under your arms and check out the free flicks that are still happening in NYC parks.
