It’s the premiere of OUT OF THE BLOCKS, an original coproduction of radio producer Aaron Henkin and electronic musician Wendel Patrick. The concept is simple: one hour of radio - one city block - everybody’s story.

Between 33rd and 34th Streets in Baltimore’s Waverly neighborhood, there’s a block of Greenmount Avenue that’s as intricate as it is invisible. You can drive past it a dozen times and never think twice about the King’s Fried Chicken carry-out on the corner, Christine’s Discount Mart up the street, the Dreams Boutique fashion emporium, Kat’s Cuts barbershop, the Maryland Tag & Title outlet, Momma’s Grocery, Thai restaurant, the Mayflower Buffet, the Shear Intensity Hair Salon, the Stereo & Jewelry Exchange, The Stadium Lounge, or any of the idle ranks sitting on stoops and bus benches, watching the traffic roll by.
Inconspicuousness is in the nature of a block like this. But under its camouflage of anonymity, there’s a buzzing microcosm of humanity here, a honeycomb of lives playing themselves out simultaneously. The people on this block are from here, and everywhere: Pakistan, Mali, Korea, China, Thailand, Eritrea, and the Ukraine. They are a one-of-a-kind tapestry of hopes, fears, and dreams.
