WCBU's On Deck has everything you need to know to start your day for Friday, April 2, 2021. Our top story is about how a network of volunteers keep watchful eyes on water quality in streams and rivers across Illinois, and you'll soon have a chance to join them. You'll also hear how on Tuesday, voters in Washington will make city history in choosing their mayor for the next four years.
We'll close out today's episode with violin music from Bradley University Research Assistant Professor and Concertmaster for the Peoria Symphony Orchestra, Marcia Henry Liebenow. In true Yo-Yo Ma fashion, she put on her own impromptu concert earlier this week, as some lucky residents awaited COVID vaccinations in Peoria County. And a special thanks to Michael Frasca for capturing and sharing this moment on social media.
