Queen City Radio Hour Returns

Listen tonight at 7 for the latest Queen City Radio Hour. Tom Bodett hosts an hour of comedy and music featuring Rusty Dewees, music by Anais Mitchell and Quebec’s Lost Fingers. We’ll peek behind the scenes at speed dating in South Burlington, take you on a turkey drive to Boston and tell a tall tale of Samuel de Champlain’s misadventures.

The program was recorded before a live audience during Burlington's Lake Champlain quadricentennial celebration. VPR's Neal Charnoff, who produced the program, writes: "As with any theatrical production, seeing the actors take words on a page and make them come alive in performance was a small miracle. Jay Craven was a calm and wise ringleader, and Tom Bodett was as funny, easygoing and friendly as he sounds on the radio. The most pleasant surprise was the enthusiastic, rock-star-worthy response from a near capacity crowd at the Flynn."

I hope you will tune in and let us know what you think!
