  We’ll start with the race for Mayor in Charm City.  Mayor Stephanie Rawling-Blake is not running.  Sheila Dixon is in and hoping for a comeback.  State Senator Catherine Pugh came in second the last time.  Nick Mosby and Carl Stokes may not be the only current city council members vying for the top job.  And, there’s no shortage of political newcomers making, or expected to make, a bid.  

Then: WANN, an Annapolis radio station that began in the 1940s and was on the air for five decades, is featured in an exhibition at the Smithsonian about radio as a source of jazz and dance music to a growing African American middle class.

Plus: Ensemble Galilei:  They’ve toured the world, and they’re stopping in today to introduce their new CD.
