Water’s Edge Radio Hour Celebrates Local Voices of the East End

Without lighting effects, set design or elaborate costumes, the audience is transported in time and setting, traveling from the waiting room of a modern day doctor’s office to the whaling docks of 1840’s Sag Harbor in a matter of minutes. “Language is the most powerful thing we have,” says Josh Perl, co-creator of Water’s Edge Radio Hour, a new variety show on WPPB, 88.3 FM. “Good writing is compelling. We can transport people there with just a few words or sound effects and their imagination follows the rest of it.”

Candidate Panel Discusses: Preservation Going Too Far?

Last Thursday evening, candidates for East Hampton Town Board and members of the public gathered at LTV Studios in Wainscott to address the question of preservation, and whether we have gone too far. The discussion was preceded by a screening of a film that showed footage of East Hampton in the 1920s and 1930s, which allowed the audience to see what has been lost and what’s been preserved. When candidates running for office this November in East Hampton Town took the stage afterwards, the unanimous sentiment was that the town has not gone too far, and some argued that it has not gone far enough.
