It’s that time of year again, when we gather ’round the old fashioned radio and listen to great stories. Tomorrow night join me and an amazing crew of creative folks for the 3rd installment of my Radio Adventure Theater. 7PM at The Studio at Billings Forge. We’ll be exploring polar explorers… and exploring ships!
No, unfortunately I won’t be taking you to sunny, warm and exotic places. In fact, we’ll be transported to some of the most bitter, brutal climates that exist on earth. You actually may come out of the experience feeling better about Connecticut’s snowy winter.
What to expect? We’ll talk Shackleton and Antarctic exploration, Peary and Arctic exploration, and we’ll explore the majesty of ships of all kinds. Also, there will be sea shanties by The Jovial Crew, a reading by UHart professor Michael Robinson (check him out on this Greely Expedition doc that just aired on PBS), poetry by local high school students, and tons of great listening.
Stay after for some of my favorite local bands performing at Indie Night.
It’s all part of Billings Forge’s new MashUP. We’re kicking it off at 9AM with a live Broadcast of Where We Live at the Lyceum. We’ll talk neighborhood revitalization with the Hartford Courant’s Tom Condon, Cary Wheaton from Billings Forge and Luis Caban from SINA. We’ll also hear from Frog Hollow residents, business owners and community members.
Tons of great stuff going on all day. Hope to see you there!
