Description

Both domesticated honey bees and wild native bees are experiencing troubling populations declines due to habitat loss, pesticides and disease. That’s why Beesponsible® has teamed up with National Wildlife Federation to promote bee conservation.

David Mizejewski, National Wildlife Federation (NWF) naturalist and author of the award-winning how-to book “Attracting Birds, Butterflies and Other Backyard Wildlife,” joins Big Blend Radio's Garden Gossip show to talk about the role of bees in the ecosystem and how they support our agriculture. Hear how we can all take action to save bee populations across the country through NWF’s bee conservation #Don’tKillMyBuzz campaign with Beesponsible® and NWF’s Garden for Wildlife program that since 1973, has been educating and empowering people to turn their garden spaces into thriving habitat for birds, bees, butterflies and other wildlife.

Big Blend Radio: On Big Shoulders - A Tribute to Chicago's Musical History
Chicago, at its very core, is a city of sound. While the storied hub of hard work is well known for its hunger and heart, the town’s history is surely shaped as much by its music as its muscle. Old Town School of Folk Music teacher and old-time musician Matt Brown recently set out to tell that story, a project that would become On Big Shoulders.Brown recruited some of Chicago’s most skilled players: guitarist and vocalist Steve Dawson; pedal steel player Brian Wilkie; bassist Aaron Smith; drummer Gerald Dowd; singers Keely Vazquez, Gia Margaret, Elise Bergman, and Liz Chidester; and horn players Anna & Evan Jacobson. With his own fiddle and GRAMMY-nominated co-producer Liam Davis singing and playing keys, the group headed to I.V. Lab Studios. Set for release on November 2, 2018 via Allograph Records, the ten song album features songs like Wilco’s “It's Just That Simple”, “Heavy Traffic Ahead” by Bill Monroe, Sam Cooke’s “I’ll Come Running Back to You”, “Long Tall Mama” by iconic Chicago blues artist Big Bill Broonzy , and “How Lonely Can You Be?” by alternative country artist Robbie Fulks .Join Nancy J. Reid and Lisa D. Smith, the mother-daughter travel team and publishers of Big Blend Magazines, for Big Blend Radio with producer and musician Matt Brown.
