About Townshippers on CIDI Radio

Did you know you can find in-depth reviews and interviews about all the health and cultural activities in the Brome Missisquoi area on the air at www.cidi991fm.com? Get your laptop, phone or Ipad (or your radio!) scheduled to tune in every Friday at 4 p.m. to hear the Townshippers’ Association team on About Townshippers. Bearing the same name as our regular column in the Brome County News, our radio show is repeated on Tuesdays at 10 a.m. This week, Linda Ransom will be speaking to Kate Murray about mental health on behalf of Mental Health and Well-Being Support Group.

Some of the interesting interviews over the past months that have taken place on About Townshippers have been with community leaders, health professionals, and volunteers. Knowlton Literary Festival’s Philip Lanthier and April O’Donoughue joined Kate Holbrook to share details about all the visiting talent and the Celtic Harmonies International Festival.

We had an introduction to Theatre Lac Brome’s new Artistic Director, Philip Mercier, who announced the schedule of music for the winter season. Lucy Hoblyn gave us an advanced lowdown on Knowlton Players’ production of the musical, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, coming in November at Theatre Lac Brome. Lucy will be back with some of the music from the performance later next month.
