UCSB Arts & Lectures to Host ‘Reinventing Radio: An Evening with Ira Glass’

'This American Life' radio show host will perform Jan. 21 at Campbell Hall

UCSB Arts & Lectures will present “Reinventing Radio: An Evening with Ira Glass,” the charismatic host of the public radio show This American Life, in a lecture/performance at 8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 21 at UCSB Campbell Hall.

Don’t delay as tickets for the Santa Barbara show are going fast!

The witty creator of This American Life will talk about his hit radio program and how it’s put together; what makes a compelling story; where they find the amazing stories for their show and how he and his staff are trying to push broadcast journalism to do things it doesn’t usually do.

As part of his UCSB appearance, Glass will mix audio clips of select stories from the show, live on stage, combining his narration with pre-taped quotes and music, re-creating the funny and memorable sound of the show as the audience watches. The award-winning radio show is heard weekly on more than 500 stations by more than 1.8 million listeners.

Tickets to “Reinventing Radio: An Evening with Ira Glass” range from $35 to $50 for the general public and are $20 for UCSB students with a current student ID. For tickets or more information, call 805.893.3535 or click here to order online.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
