For one night only on Saturday, March 27th, Ira Glass, host and producer of This American Life, brings his story-telling genius to UCLA's Royce Hall for two shows. KCRW Presents "A Night with Ira Glass: Radio Stories and Other Stories" at 7pm and a special late-night edition at 10pm.
"Radio Stories and Other Stories" offers a look behind the scenes of This American Life and goes farther. Ira talks personally about the show, its origins, his influences and the elements that make a good story.
It's a night not to be missed and you'll have the chance to ask your own questions to the creator of one of the most original radio programs in America.
This American Life was considered so utterly unique that in its first year on air, the program won broadcasting's most prestigious honor, The Peabody Award. Unlike public radio's renowned news magazines, This American Life is not the voice of record, but a record of the voices around us. The stories are as fully strange and hopeful and funny and harsh and romantic as America itself...and occasionally all at the same time. They sprawl outside the usual standard-issue broadcast confines, telling about the way it actually was, what it felt like, what really happened.
This American Life broadcasts fiction and non-fiction, monologues and documentaries. What makes its stories different are their strong narratives about characters, thrown into situations that shed light on larger issues, presenting life as drama, with characters who emerge transformed.
