BBC POP UP GETTING A GLIMPSE OF TUCSON - The BBC's first mobile bureau is spending a month in Tucson, housed at the offices of the Arizona Daily Star. The BBC is asking Americans to tell it what local stories it should share with a global audience. Tucson is one of six cities the Pop Up team is visiting in the United States. The team is capturing images on its blog, including the desert fog we experienced last week. While the Pop Up website mentions topics such as immigration, water, art, poverty, and issues around Native American land, there is also plenty of talk about the Wild West (in Tombstone).
STREETCAR SITE OF OPERA SERENADE - Tucson's streetcar became a concert venue yesterday, as approximately 20 University of Arizona School of Music voice students began singing to passengers. Several times during a trip that started near the UA and wound its way downtown and south of Interstate 10 and back, the students burst into song. The performance was a lead-up to a fundraising event next month. Read more from the Arizona Daily Star (video included).
