Tim Towey joined me on the Thursday edition of What’sUpNewp Radio Edition on AM 1540 WADK Newport to discuss all that’s the talk of the tavern down at Midtown Oyster Bar. Conversations and opinions were shared on the probable sale of the Armory on Thames Street, thoughts on the first wave of Newport Jazz Festival announcements, and finally, we chat about all of the events planned leading up to the 62nd Annual Newport Saint Patrick’s Day Parade.
