This is the Radio Boston rundown for Sept. 19. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

    • The Orange Line restarts service today after a 30-day shutdown for repairs. Was it worth it? Are riders confident that service will be reliable? WBUR's Simón Rios shares the latest and what lies ahead for Orange and Green Line riders. Plus, we speak with Mela Bush-Miles, the director of transit-oriented development for Alternatives for Community and Environment, about the impact the shutdown has had on the people who rely on it.
    • All this week, we'll be showcasing the stories of artists of color in the Greater Boston area as part of WBUR's The Makers series. Somerville photographer Iaritza Menjivar centers her family in her work. She joins us to talk about her latest series "First Generation," and what inspires her from behind the camera. Menjivar is one of 15 artists who is featured in this year's series. Then, we're joined by WBUR reporters Amelia Mason and Cristela Guerra to hear more about what we can expect from the series.
    • Another fall sports weekend is in the books. WMUR sports reporter Jonathan Marshall and WBUR's Chris Citorik join us for a recap of the good, the bad and the ugly that New England teams experienced this weekend.
    • On the day of Queen Elizabeth II's funeral, we reflect on her visit to Boston nearly 50 years ago. Former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis was serving in his first term at the time. He shares his memories of the Queen's visit.
