Chris Lydon’s “Open Source” Debuts
Chris Lydon’s return to radio begins Thursday, January, 2 with a program about an elementary school in Brighton, Mass. where every child makes music for three and a half hours a day. The driving idea, spreading worldwide from Venezuela, is that every child wants to play an instrument and can. There’s another way to teach music and maybe a new way to organize a school.
Open Source with Christopher Lydon will be live on 90.9 WBUR and livestreamed on wbur.org Thursday nights at 9 p.m., rebroadcast at 2 p.m. on Sundays. The website, radioopensource.org, will have additional podcasts and prose and ways for you to be part of the project.
If there’s a theme or premise to the new show, it’s that Boston has become (dare we say?) a Hub of the Universe, a radiant center of research and writing and strong gab around ideas that touch the world. Read more about the direction of the show from our announcement on the Open Source website.
We’re on the lookout for flights of fancy, fresh interests, people and questions of all kinds and unconventional takes on what we’re all going through in 2014.
We hope you’ll tune in and be part of the conversation, helping us stretch the spectrum of things we should be talking about. If you have questions or ideas, please feel to reach out to us at radioopensource.org.
