If we had an in-studio camera on this episode, you would have seen two people wearing headphones, a series of microphone set-ups, and sitting on top of a small, round table covered with a layer of green felt, you would notice a mason jar filled with a cutting from a Gardenia bush.  If you looked more closely at the jar, you would have observed tiny insects covering the petals of the white Gardenia blossom.  On this edition of CoastLine, we find out from plant and garden expert Tom Ericson what these bugs are and what to do about them. 


Here’s a Feedback question I expected to get but did not, as of press time: “What happened to the Midday Interview?” Well, it’s still around, but with several changes. Our daily in-depth look at art, culture and ideas, hosted by Gina Gambony, is now called Communique. It’s still heard at noon on Classical HQR, and now on HQR News twice a day, at 8:50 during Morning Edition and 4:45 during All Things Considered.



On Thursday, May 19th local folk rock group The Midatlantic performed in the MC Erny Gallery at WHQR. On Friday, June 10th and Saturday June 11th, will air our Soup to Nuts Live! concert with The Midatlantic. Tune into HQR 91.3 to hear The Midatlantic's brand of music that combines progressive folk, Americana, bluegrass, and a hint of rock and jazz.

For Commentator Philip Gerard, the retirement of the Ringling Brothers performing elephants conjured a memory of his own encounter with elephants.
