From now through November 19, Baltimore Shakespeare Factory is stepping away from the Bard for a bit to present The Sea Voyage, a comedy by John Fletcher and Philip Massinger. Recently, I spoke with director Ann Turiano about the show, which features warriors, pirates, castaways, and all manner of shenanigans.     https://www.baltimoreshakespearefactory.org/

John W. Brown‘s launch will be celebrated with a Living History Cruise. I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Seaman Paul […]

Get on your bikes and ride!

By Dyana Neal | Posted in Host Blogs, Interviews | No Comments

From July 22-24, scooter enthusiasts will meet at various locations in Baltimore to check out one another’s bikes, listen to music, meet like-minded folks, and oh, yes, ride! There hasn’t been a scooter rally in Charm City for a few years, so fans of two-wheeled transit (myself included) have good reason to be excited about […]

Baltimoments of a Different Kind

By Dyana Neal | Posted in Host Blogs | 2 Comments

When I first moved here, I was told that Baltimore is a big small town. It certainly did seem as if everyone I met knew many of my other acquaintances, either through old school ties, professional connections, or having been neighbors or romantically linked at some point. Given the number of Peabody grads and faculty […]

Time Really Does Fly…

By Dyana Neal | Posted in Host Blogs | 2 Comments

  Nineteen years ago today, I began working at WBJC.  I can’t believe I’ve been here that long, yet it seems very strange to think I ever lived anywhere else but Baltimore. Prior to my big move (I drove 900 miles in 2 days, alone, to get here) I resided in Iowa City, where I’d […]

Though somewhat daunted by the prospect of riding in last year’s Tour du Port, I got up the courage and had a blast! Actually, it was WBJC’s Jonathan Palevsky who persuaded me to ride with him in Bike Maryland’s Tour du Port which is a fundraiser and an awareness-raiser.  Not only do you get to […]
