The organization Groundwork Jacksonville has recently launched with the mission of improving communities. The group plans to do everything from cleaning up blighted areas and brownfields to restoring Hogans and Deer Creeks, two important tributaries to the St. Johns River. We speak with Groundwork CEO Dawn Emerick, program coordinator Alyssa Bourgoyne, and Dave Roman with the City of Jacksonville.

iStart Jax president and CEO Yash Nath joins us to discuss this week's Startup Weekend for entrepeneurs to connect with coaches, CEO’s and other experts to help grow their idea.

We also speak with international jazz musicians Alon Yavnai and Joca Perpignan. They will be performing at part of UNF's 27th Annual Great American Jazz Series this week in Spring Fever “Where the Middle East Meets Brazil.”

And WJCT music director and Electro Lounge host David Luckin joins to discuss new changes coming to our lineup of After Hours music programming.
