Live Performance By Hallelujah The Hills’ Ryan Walsh
Ryan WalshThe members of the band Hallelujah the Hills have been making music for most of their lives, and records for the past five years. When guest host Steve Almond got a hold of their debut record, Collective Psychosis Begone, some years back, he was captivated by the band’s strange blend of the dreamy and down home, and by the beautifully odd lyrics of songwriter Ryan Walsh. The band went on to release two more albums, and they’ve toured the country more times than they’d probably want to remember. Lucky for us, they always have to come home to the Boston Area, and so we’re delighted to have Ryan Walsh, along with his stand-up bassist, Nick Ward, here today to do a live studio performance.

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
