On today’s show:
- It is with considerable sadness that we report the passing of one of our alumni. Joe Blades was the host of CHSR’s literature, arts and poetry program, Ashes, Paper and Beans for decades. He stopped doing the show a few years ago with increasing time needed to pursue his PhD, but never ceased being a member. Joe will be very missed in the multiple arts communities of this region and around the world of which he was part. He passed on April 22.
