On the Friday edition of The Open Forum with Ryan Belmore on 1540 AM WADK Newport I discussed briefly truck tolls being singed into law by Governor Raimondo, as well as a quick recap on what my opinion’s mean and how I want to hear yours.

I then dove into what’s happening this weekend in and around Newport and took a few minutes to chat with Julia Lapham about her performance tonight with Joop & Jake at O’brien’s Pub and on Sunday at One Pelham East.

The show continued with a conversation about Newport’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade being just a month away, as all that’s fun and to do during Newport Winter Festival. Joe from Newport called in to chat about his appreciation for some of the great musical performance during the Newport Winter Festival.
