Ira Glass at Kingsbury Hall on April 12th

Reinventing Radio: An Evening with Ira Glass 

    

Saturday, April 12th, 2014 at 8:00pm at Kingsbury Hall

Ira Glass, creator of the public radio show "This American Life," will be at Kingsbury Hall on April 12, 2014.  Ira will discuss his program and how it's put together: what makes a compelling story, where they find the amazing stories for their show, and how he and his staff are trying to push broadcast journalism to do things it doesn't usually do.  As part of this, Glass mixes stories from the show live onstage, combining his narration with pre-taped quotes and music, recreating the sound of the show as the audience watches.  Click here for details and to purchase tickets.
