All Things Peoria - Friday, April 22, 2022

On today’s episode, WCBU’s Joe Deacon checks in with Peoria Civic Center general manager Rik Edgar, who says after the venue stayed dormant during the COVID-19 pandemic, recent concert crowds have exceeded expectations. And you’ll hear part two of reporter Hannah Alani’s conversation with the CEO of Peoria Community Against Violence Becky Rossman, who reflects on how working in the anti-violence space has led her to conclusions about wider inequities in education. Plus, during Out and About, host Jenn Gordon of Arts Partners of Central Illinois is joined by director Chris Peterlin and actor Laynie Zika to talk about Corn Stock for Kids’ fun take on its latest production, “Junie B. Jones is Not a Crook”.

Daniel Musisi is WCBU's Assistant Audio Director. He's also the host of our daily newsmagazine All Things Peoria.
