In  this week's program we’ll talk about a water shortage that has left a whole Valley community waterless. FM89 reporter Diana Aguilera tells the story of Measure Z and the Fresno Chaffee Zoo.

We'll also discuss the future of the Fresno Grizzlies. Last week the team lost its longtime partnership with the San Francisco Giants, and talk of a possible sale and new lease is swirling around city hall. We’ll talk to Grizzlies Vice President Derek Franks,  Grizzlies Media Relations Coordinator Ryan Young and MarekWarsawski of the Fresno Bee about whether professional baseball can survive in Chukchansi Park, and whether taxpayers will be left holding the ball. Also talking baseball Bakersfield Sports Editor Zachary Ewing joins conversation about a similar situation with the Bakersfield Blaze

We’ll also get a preview of Fresno’s F.U.S.E. Festival, which brings dozens of bands together in downtown Fresno for a celebration of local rock. And we’ll get a look at the new season of the Fresno Philharmonic.
