Your roving correspondent has been asked to appear on WPRO’s Coaltion Radio once again this Saturday at 6 p.m. Also scheduled to appear is Pawtucket Mayor Donald Grebian. Two weeks ago, in my first appearance on PRO (which you can hear through a link below), we discussed why architecture is important to Providence, and how Rhode Island could improve its economy on the cheap by embracing projects with building designs people love. You know, houses that look like houses, banks that look like banks, even stadia that look like stadia. That sort of thing.
Huh? I suppose Mayor Grebian will have something to say about that. “We wuz robbed!” is a perfectly reasonable complaint on the part of Pawtucket – though the city has not been robbed yet. Personally, if the Pawsox do move from Pawtucket to Providence, I think the name Pawsox should remain unchanged in homage to the Bucket.
Here are links to WPRO and Coalition Radio. The third link takes you to the Coalition website where you can click on Coalition #74 and hear my rant beginning at 34:00 minutes into the show:
