January 14-15 on Weekend Arts Magazine

Some of the stories we’re presenting this week - Sara Tilley returns to Weekend AM and outlines the 10th anniversary celebrations of She Said Yes! Theatre. Mary Dalton sparks your interest in the Sparks Literary Festival. Jeanne Beker returns to Newfoundland and Labrador, but fashion isn’t on her mind … a starring role in Ruth Lawrence’s new film is! A new show opens at Eastern Edge in St. John’s, I’ll talk with Melanie Colosimo and John Hampton. The Department of Education sees the value of Cultural Connections - visual art in our schools gets another push, Minister Clyde Jackman will be here. Plus a new old Newfoundland song returns to the province from Texas via Australia - you’ll hear Aqua Fjord (sic). My guests on Liner Notes are Evry7th. The Weekend Arts Magazine with Mack Furlong airs from 6 to 9:30 island time - 5:30 to 9:00 in parts of Labrador - on Saturday and Sunday mornings on CBC Radio 1.
