Apropos of Something is a new show on Saturday mornings from 10-11am.
Why? Because in these queasy times we need our information mixed with a little humor.
Co-hosted by best friends Ellen Daniels in our Charlottesville studio, and Nancy Laurence, in New York City, “Apropos of Something” talks to Charlottesville citizens who are most impacted by the latest “scratch-your-head” federal policies.
Every week they talk to experts, activists, and the most interesting people they can find. We guarantee every show will be “Apropos of Something.”
Saturdays from 10-11am, on WPVC 94.7, Resistance Radio.
