Tune in to WDEV (AM 550, FM 96.1) on Thursday at 3 p.m. to hear Jack Donovan talk with Charles and me about The Hale Street Gang: Portraits in Writing, opening at Chandler Gallery in Randolph on Saturday (photography by Jack Rowell, cupcakes by Aunt Ruth and Dorcas Wright, doors open at 2 pm). Last spring Mr. Donovan had Mary Jacobs and me on the air to talk about the Hale Street Gang back when we were still raising the funds to mount the exhibit. Now that it's a fait accompli, we can tell him how we did it—with the support of lots of friends. Charles plans to read his little piece on humility ("I don't like to brag, but I'm a really humble dude").
Next stop on Thursday: WCAX in Burlington to speak with Kristin Carlson. We'll be on the air between 5:30 and 6 p.m. (Channel 3). Charles is going to wear his new blue sweater and get a haircut at Ken's Barbershop. Jack will document the event for posterity. It's not every day one gets a haircut at Ken's.
