Dee Perry welcomes back regular irregular guest William Busta the acclaimed curator who unveils the paintings of Gianna Commito in his latest exhibition. And we get an aerial view from Plain Dealer birding columnist James McCarty and his young son and protégé Bret who both speak for the Cleveland Audubon Society later this week at The Cleveland Museum of Natural History. Plus, Dee raises the curtain on the "new" Mark Twain play - Is He Dead? - onstage at The Beck Center for the Arts.
