The Northwest Arkansas Jazz Society is starting their monthly jazz jam again this week. Musicians will gather at the Roots HQ Thursday night for the first installment.

KUAF's latest podcast, The Lunch Hour, is about art, food, creativity, cooperation and community. The first episode focuses on the music of Baang and the community-inspired food of Jerrmy Gawthrop of Woodstone Pizza.

The first non-holiday weekend of the year offers a musical at Walton Arts Center, a multi-band metal show and more. Becca Martin Brown, the features editor at the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, gives us a road map for entertainment.

Today we hear part two of the latest episode of the RefleXions podcast. In November, the RefleXions Music Series facilitated a conversation with three distinguished guests about the social impact of the arts in peacebuilding, reconciliation, and healing. The third episode of the RefleXions podcast is a continuation of that conversation. We hear from three international artists who have been creating art as a response to and as a way to confront violence happening in their native countries and across the globe.

Kris Mastin has performed in various bands around Fayetteville over the years. Now, as John Charles, he has released his first album of his own original music, an effort that took about ten years to complete. We talk with him about making “Around,” and we hear a track from the album.
