Tuesday, we're talking about Bach's Cello Suites and the incredible story of how musician Pablo Casals discovered the almost-unknown compositions in a second-hand store. Our guest is the journalist Eric Siblin, a one-time pop music critic who was "struck by musical lightening" when he first heard the Suites in concert. Siblin set out to write a history of The Suites and soon discovered three centuries of politics, intrigue and passion.

The temperature is starting to climb and if you haven't already, chances are good you'll be turning on your air conditioner soon. Besides making us more comfortable, that blast of cool air is also responsible for much of the way we live our lives. Air conditioning changed the way we work, the way we commute, even the way we interact with our neighbors. Monday, we're talking about the history of air conditioning and about how environmental and energy issues are changing the way we keep our cool.

Spark

Apr 6, 2011

What does it take to light the spark of creativity? For more than a decade, Studio 360 host Kurt Andersen and producer Julie Burstein have been getting at that question with artists, scientists and other thinkers. Themes have emerged in those conversations. The most creative minds are excited about the work they do and they're willing to reach beyond their comfort zone. Burstein and Andersen join Doug to talk about the lessons they've collected in a new book called "Spark: How Creativity Works."

Radio Hour Episode 6

Oct 31, 2010

KUER celebrates its 50th anniversary and Plan-B Theatre Company celebrates its 20th anniversary with a Radio Hour Marathon. Episodes 1, 2, 3 and 4 re-broadcast with commentary from director Cheryl Ann Cluff.

In 1862, Lewis Carroll created a tale to delight a little girl. That girl of course was named Alice, and 3 years later the story was published as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Since then, the journey down the rabbit hole has become a favorite - reproduced in silent films, Walt Disney animation, television, comics and even video games. Now, for our fifth and final Halloween drama, Plan B Theatre Company and RadioWest bring you Radio Hour - Alice, a dark reimagining of Carroll's enduring tale.

Plan B Theatre Company and RadioWest present our fourth annual Halloween Radio Hour. Join us live at 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. for Mary Shelley's horror classic Frankenstein - adapted for radio by the playwright Matthew Ivan Bennett. It's a story of hubris - and of the monsters we create when we abandon compassion and accountability.

Wednesday is Halloween, and members of the Plan B Theatre Company will join us to present our third annual live broadcast of radio theater. Utah playwright Matthew Ivan Bennett has created two original plays - Lavender and Exile - based on ghost stories from Salt Lake City.

Tuesday is Hallowe'en, and members of the Plan B Theatre Company will join us to present another live broadcast of radio theatre. They'll perform two classic tales perfect for the occasion - complete with live sound effects. We've got Ray Bradbury's Zero Hour and you'll hear Lucille Fletcher's The Hitch-Hiker much like you would have when the Mercury Theatre first did it in 1946.

Plan B Theatre Company and RadioWest present a special Hallowe'en live radio theatre performance. Three actors and a sound effects artist will perform adaptations of Edgar Allan Poe's stories "The Tell-Tale Heart" and "The Premature Burial."
