On today’s weekend edition, M. Scott Morris (13:31) joins Derek and Brad to review “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.” Scott said the movie, like the original, is a fun ride featuring explosions, fights and flying high through space. Several of the characters also are dealing with various family issues that add some complexity to the plot.
Derek has the highlights of the weekend entertainment scene (20:49). This weekend, that means Tupelo’s annual GumTree Festival. Nearly 100 street vendors will have booths featuring pottery, paintings, posters, prints and more. This year, there also will be a Junior Art Market for high school students to sell their artwork. Then there is a lot of live music, with the singer-songwriter competition and Saturday night’s GumBash. Grammy Award-winning country musician Lari White will perform on Saturday afternoon.
