Live Wire! is a radio variety show recorded in front of an enthusiastic live audience from the Alberta Rose Theatre in NE Portland, airs each week around the state and in SW Washington via Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB), on stations around the country and is heard nationally and internationally through its podcasts. Itís music, itís conversation, itís sketch comedy. It's radio variety for the A.D.D. generation.
This week featured performers include:
Brian Michael Bendis
Comic book writer and former artist who has won critical acclaim (including five Eisner Awards) for his self-published, Image Comics and Marvel Comics work. He is one of the most successful writers working in mainstream comics, with his books selling consistently highly for over a decade.
Staff writer for The New Yorker and author of Rin Tin Tin: The Life and the Legend, the moving story of Rin Tin Tin's journey from orphaned puppy to movie star and international icon.
Stand-up comic, winner of the Portland Amateur Comedy Contest and played Carrie Brownstein's boyfriend in Portlandia.
Portland-based based experimental/alternative/country/folk band. They recently performed on David Letterman promoting their latest record, American Goldwing.
Seven-piece Northwest band deeply rooted to its place of origin but equally anxious to get away, to see it all. Not escapism, but expansion: Listen closely to To Travels and Trunks and you'll hear faraway places named not so much as a wish list but as incantation. The broader your horizon, the deeper your longing, the more genuine your experience.
