Snow Blasts Region AGAIN, Residents & Businesses Dig Out AGAIN

Snow Blasts Region AGAIN, Residents & Businesses Dig Out AGAIN
Snowstorm New England residents are dealing with another thick blanket of snow in a winter that has already left mini mountains on street corners and in empty yards. When parking bans finally are lifted, there’s virtually nowhere to park and it’s got us wondering what cities and towns are going to do? At what point do they have to haul the heaps of plowed white stuff away? And when they do – where does it go? We’ll ask Stan Koty, who is the Commissioner of the Department of Public Works for the City of Somerville. Plus, how is this season’s snowfall affecting retail business on Boston’s major shopping thoroughfare – Newbury St.? We’ll be joined by Charles Talanian, the president of C. Talanian Realty Co.

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

Guests:
  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
  Thomas Frank, journalist and author of books like What’s The Matter With Kansas? and most recently, Pity The Billionaire. Founding editor of The Baffler
