In tandem with the premiere of the Christopher Nolan film Oppenheimer at the Little Theatre, the arrival of the nuclear abolition advocacy ship the Golden Rule into Rochester, and the 78th Anniversary of the Trinity Test, guest host Gino Fanelli hosts a conversation on nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation. Joining him are members of Veterans for Peace to discuss the movement against nuclear weapons.

Then in our second hour, summer is a busy time for working musicians, and the members of local rock-country outfit Public Water Supply are no exception. Whether Public Water Supply is playing high-energy gigs at venues like the JCC Canalside Stage — where it headlines a fashion-themed show this Saturday — or its two singers Iggy Marino and Adrianna Noone are sharing a bill with high-profile musicians like Lyle Lovett, these artists boast a musical maturity beyond their years. Guest host Daniel Kushner talks with them about working in the local music scene, their approach to songwriting and collaboration, and their upcoming shows. Our guests:

  • Iggy Marino, member of Rochester alt-country band Public Water Supply
  • Adrianna Noone, member of Rochester alt-country band Public Water Supply
