Food for Thought

Jan 19, 2017

At the Café du Grand Boeuf in Paris, no menu is necessary. Why? “Because we have everything,” asserts Claude, the mercurial Maître d’.

This Friday January 20th at 1:30 pm Florida Tech will celebrate Arbor Day by planting 5 Bald Cypress trees in front of the WFIT studios.  Come on out and meet Pete the Panther, tour the WFIT studios and get a little dirty.  WFIT studios are located on University Blvd just west of Babcock.

Arbor Day in Florida

It Shoulda Been You

Jan 18, 2017

Fresh from a David Hyde Pierce directed Broadway hit run last year, the Henegar Center It Shoulda Been You serves up a far from traditional wedding comedy. Proving that when it comes to that madcap wedding day, this twistedly twisting plot just might take the (wedding) cake.

Is it a revival of some long-lost screwball classic? No, it's a snappy musical comedy with a strong cast under the sprightly and masterful direction of Hank Rion based on the book and lyrics by Brian Hargrove and music and concept by Barbara Anselmi. The production runs through January 29.

Moon Express

Cape Canaveral company Moon Express got $45-million to fund landing their spacecraft on the moon. And a shot at winning the Google Lunar XPRIZE.

Erik Satie
Wikipedia

This week we take a look at some music with roots in Yemen, Morocco, Sudan,  and Sephardic Spain -- some ancient, some contemporary.

Then we devote the second half of the program to the world premiere recording of a major piano work by Erik Satie, written in 1892, played at its debut in that year, and possibly unperformed again for nearly a hundred years..

It all promises to make for a most unusual evening up in the Attic.

  Founded in 1952, Brevard’s Humane Society (Central Brevard Humane Society) is the community’s oldest established animal welfare organization. A “no kill for space” shelter, the Humane Society is dedicated to “speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves”. We educate the community on responsible pet ownership and the humane treatment of animals, advocate for spaying/neutering to reduce the homeless pet population and provide the best quality care to Brevard’s abandoned animals by placing them with responsible, caring owners in a new “forever” home.

Many albums this year were about loss, yet most are still searching and hoping things will be ok. Here is our top picks for 2016
