New on the air

The Austin Neighborhoods Council has a new show on KO-OP radio 91.7-FM, called A Neighborly Conversation, with its own website. (By the way, where the website mentions “Barton Creek,” “Blunn Creek” should be substituted.) In thirty minutes there’s time for substantial information and discussion. Today’s three segments were Austin Inside-Out, on Austin watersheds; A Sidewalk Conversation, on mandated tree-trimming; and Jack Attack, with a short recorded segment by Jeff Jack on neighborhood planning, the main topic for the next program. The format shows promise, allotting the greatest portion of time to some spontaneous and free-form discussion, while adhering to the set topics for the day. Today’s cast of characters was large, with representatives from South Austin, City government, permaculture circles, and bond-recommendation committees. There seemed to be nobody from east of IH-35. A Neighborly Conversation is scheduled for broadcast every Wednesday from 12:30 to 1 pm.
