The Callie Crossley Show 8/20/10
Hyper-local Week in Review: We dive into the news that didn't reach our radar Sue O'Connell, co-publisher of Bay Windows and the South End New; Robert Witcomb of the Providence Journal; and Arnie Arnesen, Radio and TV Commentator. On today's show, a 'sign for jesus' on Route 4, a hearing on public housing, a Sheriff hopeful sees little support at a meeting, and... biogas from cows? Those stories and more.
Ragtime: A tour of the week's tabloids with Rachel Rubin, Chair, Department of American Studies, UMass Boston; and Thomas Connolly, Professor of English at Suffolk University. We'll take a highbrow look at some lowbrow stories of the week, from Aerosmith's Steve Tyler as the next "Idol" judge, to Halle Berry, the first African American on the front page of the September issue of Vogue in over 20 years, to Eminem and Rihanna teaming up to make a controversial video.
