12 noon: Finger Lakes winemakers are opposing a large-scale liquid propane gas (LPG) storage project; we explore both sides
1pm: Jeff Tyzik celebrates 20 years with the RPO as Principal Pops Conductor
At noon, Crestwood Energy wants to use a large salt cavern to store liquid propane gas, and the company promises to create 8-10 jobs in doing so. But Finger Lakes winemakers compare this plan to building a factory in Yellowstone National Park; they say it just doesn't fit with the successful tourism industry that has grown there. We'll hear from the following guests: a representative of the company; a Syracuse geology professor who supports the project; several Finger Lakes winemakers who oppose it; and Savor Life radio host Michael Warren Thomas, who has helped organize opposition to the project.
At one, Jeff Tyzik celebrates 20 years as Principal Pops Conductor with the RPO. His work now takes him across the country, and we'll talk to him about finding balance. We'll also talk about how he continues to bring a fresh edge to musical performance.
