Always on that cellphone! ES Radio Play "Strained Pears"

The arts have our undivided attention this week with an extended version of Tom Eblen’s chat with Lexington’s Ada Limón on her appointment as U.S. Poet Laureate. Bill McCann talks with Athens West founder/director Bo List about the theatre company’s decision to bring down the curtain. CivicLex Program Director Megan Gulla brings us up to speed on the efforts of the civic education organization to bring the influences of art to the workings of local government. Ali Blair joins us from Berea with details on the upcoming Levitt AMP Concert Series. And (drumroll, please), “Strained Pears”, our latest Ten Minute Radio Play starring KY Humanities Director and “Think History” host Bill Goodman, Berea College Theatre Chair Deborah Martin and EKU Theatre Instructor Alana Ghent.

Tom Martin is the host of Eastern Standard, a weekly radio magazine of interviews and stories about interesting people, places, and things happening in the Commonwealth.
