Here's the Radio Boston rundown for July 2. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Gov. Charlie Baker today announced that Phase 3 of the economy's reopening will begin next Monday. We take your questions on the reopening, and how to stay safe this holiday weekend, with two local doctors.
  • Ahead of the July 4th weekend, we invited back Lonnie Newburn, owner of The Boston Shaker, a craft cocktail supply store in Somerville, and Anthony Mottla, a cocktail consultant for the store and a bartender at Mariel. This time, they left their signature cocktail shaker at home to teach us new techniques.
  • We speak with Boston Pops director Keith Lockhart on this year's re-imagined Fireworks Spectacular, in the era of COVID-19 and Black Lives Matter.

This program aired on July 2, 2020.
