Issue No. 4 - Winter 2015
Listen to Amherst Live on your phone!
Amherst Live is the new live magazine show bringing you news and insight, ideas and inspiration, from the heart of one small town. Produced by professionals, performed by rank amateurs, each quarterly show collects the best in local politics, poetry, nature, and music—together with two terse but edgy talks that will change the way you view the town you thought you knew. This show was inspired by the people who live here: an extraordinary amalgam of poets and writers, farmers and ag people, students and retirees, professors and basement techies, and diverse ethinic communities. Ultimately, the richness that one finds here is simply too great to leave untapped. By pairing members of our community with a team of media professionals, our hope is to help make the town of Amherst newly available to itself, and enable every one of us to benefit from our collective experience. We see this as a kind of municipal service: a sensible, pragmatic way to make the most of living here. Which is why we aspire to offer Amherst Live on a quarterly basis, so that your own town will forever be revealing itself to you, and so you will always have a place where you can go to meet your neighbors, and kick around some cool ideas.
