Heart of the East End – March 11th, 2022

Giulia D’Agnolo Vallan, Underwritten by Village Overhead Doors

In solidarity with Ukraine, Giulia D’Agnolo Vallan of the Sag Harbor Cinema comes on-air to discuss a special showing of “Maidan” this Sunday, March 13 at 4 p.m. with proceeds from ticket sales being donated to Riverhead’s St. John the Baptist Ukranian Catholic Church in support of Ukranian humanitarian, military and refugee needs. From the Sag Harbor Cinema website: “Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Sergei Loznitsa, Maidan chronicles the civil uprising that toppled the government of Ukrainian president Victor Yanukovich and has since developed into an international crisis between Russia and the West. Filmed in stunning long takes, sans commentary, Maidan is a record of a momentous historical event and an extraordinary study of the popular uprising as a social, cultural and philosophical phenomenon.”

Pete Mancini, HOTsounds

On this edition of Heart Of The Sounds, Pete Mancini premieres his brand-new single, “Madison Ave Blues,” an unconventional love song for the city that will be found on his upcoming record, Killing the Old Ways. The title track for that record was written with the late Travis McKeveny, a close friend and brilliant Long Island musician who died suddenly last September at 35 years old.
