David Gordon runs the mobile lyricism program at the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Capital Area. Over the summer, he bought a beat-up RV and converted it into a recording studio decked out with subwoofers, a soundproof recording booth and neon lights.

Gordon’s goal was simple: to bring his lyricism program to the Capital Region kids who need it— particularly when the coronavirus pandemic hit. In this episode of The Eagle, Times Union reporter Massarah Mikati takes a peek inside the mobile studio.

Also on this episode, health reporter Bethany Bump talks about her reporting on the alarming rise in Alzheimer's and dementia deaths in New York State, and how it might be tied to the pandemic.
