Here and Now Local News

WFPL News Director Gabe Bullard spent a few minutes talking with Rebecca Mercer, manager of Ear X-Tacy, about the specific reasons behind the decision to permanently close the respected local institution, why it happened the way it did, and what it means for regional bands, concert promoters, and music shoppers.  The conversation aired today on Here and Now.
