This month the Chuckanut Radio Hour will celebrate its 12th Anniversary with two authors who hosted stand-out Lit Live! events in 2018. Local authors John Hoyte and Luci Shaw both graced our Readings Gallery to great acclaim, and we are pleased to welcome them to the Heiner Theater stage as our guest authors! The party includes a musical performance by The Holmes Shea Band.
We are excited to announce a special addition to our show— Luke Burbank will be joining us! If that name sounds familiar, maybe you've heard him hosting his weekend public radio show Live Wire, or as a panelist on Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, or possibly on CBS Sunday Morning. Luke also hosts a podcast called TBTL — Too Beautiful to Live — which grew out of a radio talk show that aired on KIRO radio in Seattle. (The podcast has lasted way longer!) We're looking forward to a lively conversation, and maybe a few tips from a pro — to take the Chuckanut Radio Hour to the big time!
This is always a popular show so get your tickets now! Enjoy!
