Fans of public radio will be able to see Ira Glass in Dayton this September.
Known for his radio show and podcast “This American Life” where Glass “regularly captures slice-of-life moments that spotlight unconventional narratives and storytellers from diverse and eclectic communities,” per a release from WYSO Public Radio.
WYSO is presenting Glass’s one-night-only limited tour Seven Things I’ve Learned: An Evening with Ira Glass at the Schuster Center. The show will also stop in Athens Ga. and Berkeley Ca.
“For public radio nerds like me, Ira Glass is a legend,” says Luke Dennis, WYSO general manager. “Listening to This American Life inspired me to work in the field. He wrote the playbook back in the mid-90s for what a great radio storytelling can be and has continued to reinvent that playbook for nearly 30 years. He is a guiding light for all who do this work.”
Tickets for the Sept. 10 show are on sale now.
The show begins at 7:30 p.m. The Schuster Center is located at 1 W 2nd St., Dayton. Find tickets and more information at daytonlive.org.
