ABOUT THIS SHOW:

Loving Frederick is a unique collaboration with the Frederick community! Each week, our hosts will talk with different members of Frederick’s diverse community who will share their knowledge of Frederick’s history and their experiences living and loving Frederick. The live virtual audience will be able to ask questions of our guests and answer trivia questions. In addition to storytelling, the show will feature local music and art. Loving Frederick can’t capture all of what makes this city special, but we’ll share as much of our love for this community as we can fit into 50 minutes!
