Tomorrow afternoon at 1:00 PM here on WYPR, producer Aaron Henkin and musician Wendel Patrick will unveil their season-opening installment of Out of the Blocks. Out of The Blocks gives listeners an intimate look into the lives of people who live and work on one specific block in Baltimore.  In the past, they’ve taken us to Greenmount Avenue in Waverly, to Patapsco Avenue in South Baltimore, and right after the unrest in April, they took us to The Penn North intersection that was the epicenter of the violence.  Tomorrow, they’ll introduce us to folks in the 4700 block of Liberty Heights Avenue, in Northwest Baltimore, and this morning, Aaron Henkin and Wendel Patrick join with a seasion preview. 

 

Out of the Blocks will be re-broadcast on Wednesday evening at 8:00 PM, and you can catch it and all of the other episodes online.
