March 8th, 2013 BRILLIANT!


Trevor Edwards has spent 40 years in the world of horticulture.  He is a charming Irishman (is there any other kind?) Trevor is a gardening superstar. He is THE man for Garden Design, Consultancy & Project Management, Garden Tours, Writing and TV & Radio Broadcasting. Trevor set up Plantsman’s Garden Tours to bring keen gardeners into the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland to experience the many and diverse gardens made possible by the Gulf Stream Drift in such a relatively small geographic island.  He tells me about the walled city of Derry’s Year Of Culture and shares a local joke or two with me.

On  this week’s Projections, I’ll be back at the Bryn Mawr Film Institute with Juliet who has the low down on the films coming our way in the coming weeks.


Seth Reichgott  has news of a British pop-up theatre in this week’s Centre Stage


Craig Snyder is here with World Views and his very palatable take on world news


And speaking of palatable, our Wining Archeologist Jill Weber will be pouring me some extraordinary beers on Phill & Jills Brilliant Wine Sketch from JET Wine Bar

  • Brauhaus Hartmannsdorf  Dollnitzer Ritterguts Gose  (Germany)
  • Brouweij van Viven   Smoked Porter  (Belgium)


Naomi Izen will tell us about hardware … I hope she remembers she presents our fashion feature “Philly Wears”


And on the cassette player this week:

  • The Jayhawks: Bad Time
  • Crowded House:  It’s Only Natural
  • Gareth Gates:  Yesterday

Enjoy the show!
