Stories by Richard

To give you a brief understanding of the tunefoolery organization, I will tell you this. The organization which was born in the mid nineties by Theresa Thompson and Jens Rebo at a social club which entertained many Cambridge and Somerville mental health clients. Starting out there were a few pioneers to play at different venues such as nursing homes and mental health facilities.

The organization has grown with scores of entertainers as well as many different instruments.


The doors opened at precisely seven o'clock at the UAV, a hall which the North Cambridge Little Baseball League uses for its meetings. There was a representative from every minor and major league team in the league. Dignitaries (as pictured) David Kale,the backbone of the north division and Peter McCaan starting his second term as president Also Becky Harmon is taking up the reigns doing the recruiting.

I was blessed today to have an interview with Mr. Fred Fantini; an 18 term year school Committee member. We greeted each other and were granted a room in the main library to conduct what was to be an interview.

Fred started off responding to my first question which was what piqued his interest in politics. He shared that his brother David who also was involved in politics was a major influence on him. He talked about his family belief to contribute to the community.

I must start off by reporting how business like; yet very down to earth Shelley the owner of Albertine Press struck me. Upon entering the establishment I was directed to the rear of the store where there was a huge printing press which Shelley was demonstrating its usage to customers. Shelley and I sat at a table to begin the interview.  must mention her inquisitive and personable daughter, Emily. I asked Shelley how long had she been in business in Inman Square. She replied that she had been here for close to two months. That would make her a start-up, right?

The Wednesday before Christmas twas actually December 20th, 2017; and the  Inman Square apartments held their annual Christmas Holiday Party. The management who puts on this gala affair outdoes themselves year after year. The community room located on the top floor of this apartment building was where this festive occasion was held.


CHRISTOPHER HOPE came to CCTV in november to give us a lesson in podcasting. The first thong he taught us answered the question: What is a podcast? A podcast gives you what you want to do such as interviews, music, a newsreel,sports etc. Before you can begin to podcast there are some supplies which you will need. A usr or analog xlr , most people use a blog, you also of course need a computer. The atmosphere is important in doing your podcast. It is advised that the best place to podcast is in a quiet place unless you need background noise like at a park or parade.

This is the second in a two part series on group treatment for people who are struggling with emotional and mental health ailments. When we last met we had finished off describing a group called the wellness group.
