This fall, the Sierra Club Canada Foundation Atlantic Chapter will plant edible trees and shrubs on the Dartmouth Common.  At 6:45 learn how you can help create more urban green spaces in our community.

It’s an event that plans to shine a light on “Everyday Heroes” with extraordinary hope. Halifax is one of 11 locations for the Parkinson SuperWalk with a goal to help and support the nearly 8,400 Maritimers living with Parkinson’s. At 7:15 we’ll be joined by Bob Shaw, CEO of Parkinson Society Maritime Region, and a funded researcher at The Brain Repair Centre at Dalhousie.

Can you believe it’s already time to kick off another season of Neptune Theatre?   At 7:45 we chat with two stars of the musical extravaganza Into the Woods.  Get the inside track on how the show is shaping before it opens next Tuesday.

Sure fall means changing leaves but it also means plenty of changing channels with all your favourite shows starting back up for the new season. At 8:15 Stephanie Beaumont of Sea and Be Scene will stop by to bring us the latest scoop from Hollywood to Haliwood.

We’ve had many guests on the show over the past year and a half but none named The Junk Yard Dog! Former Toronto Raptors fan favourite Jerome “Junk Yard Dog” WIlliams is in town this weekend for a big event at Mic Mac Mall called “NBA Nation.” At 8:45 we’ll meet the man known affectionately among basketball fans as JYD and get the scoop on this weekend’s hoops.
