New Podcast Launched

A new podcast has been launched for the Dorchester Center for the Arts based upon recorded shows of “A Love for the Arts” on WCEM-AM 1240. The shows posted to this site are highlights of the interviews that had the broadest appeal, and podcasts have been edited for time and content.

While some information may address a particular point in time, the information may still be beneficial, as many ideas come from a random thought or conversation. The arts are about creativity, and perhaps something heard will plant a seed, initiate a spark of an idea that can be expanded, and inspire someone to enhance the arts locally or where they live.                    DCA extends its appreciation to MTS Broadcasting for its support.
