The clothesline: it’s an old-fashioned, even quaint, installation that’s fading from modern culture, but the metaphor it offers is the centerpiece of a new show called The Clothesline Muse playing Kenan Auditorium this Saturday.
On the next CoastLine: The Williston School is celebrating its centennial. Grammy nominated jazz singer Nnenna Freelon is working with current Williston students to develop a history of the school through art. We'll talk with her about the Clothesline Muse and the legacy of Williston Senior High.
During our pledge drive, we can't take phone calls. But please send any questions or comments you have to:
Today we welcome some special visitors to Wilmington’s friendly shores. Staff members from many of North Carolina’s other public radio stations are in town for a conference on station growth. This is the first time in several years that the North Carolina stations have gotten together. Thanks to Jeff Hunter of our staff for his tireless efforts at putting this event together, and to the Blockade Runner in Wrightsville Beach for hosting the group. We welcome our colleagues to town!
Tune in Wednesday, March 18 at noon for the next CoastLine: March is Women's History Month. We're in the midst of third-wave feminism - what does the modern day's women's rights movement entail? We'll discuss this and the achievements of women with Dr. Katie Peel, Director of UNCW's Women's Studies and Resource Center.
On the Next CoastLine: One terminal groin is under construction on Bald Head Island, and three other coastal communities are seeking permits. Yet environmentalists worry the structures will fundamentally change the coast. We'll talk with the Mayor of Ocean Isle Beach, Debbie Smith, and Mike Giles of the North Carolina Coastal Federation.
