The Moth Radio Hour
12 September 2016
I like to listen to the radio when I’m in the car, and as well as music ( I love music) I love to listen to ABC Radio National. . Especially when some interesting programs are on. One such interesting program is ‘The Moth Radio Hour.’
I’m not sure how the name of the program originates, but it is a really interesting program, showcasing people’s stories. And a lot of the stories are funny, and have me laughing every time.. So thought it’s definitely worth sharing! 🙂
Saturdays, at 7pm, on ABC Radio National.. Have a listen, and let me know what you think.
From The Moth Radio Hour website, at themoth.org:
“Moth stories are true, as remembered by the storyteller and always told live.
The Moth Radio Hour features our most beloved tales and the stories behind the stories.
Since its launch in 1997, The Moth has presented thousands of stories told live and without notes.
Moth shows are renowned for the great range of human experience they showcase. Each show starts with a theme, and the storytellers explore it, often in unexpected ways. Since each story is true and every voice authentic, the shows dance between documentary and theater, creating a unique, intimate, and often enlightening experience for the audience.
Through ongoing programs in more than 25 cities, The Moth has presented over 18,000 stories to standing-room-only crowds worldwide and it currently produces more than 500 live shows each year. Additionally, The Moth runs storytelling workshops for high school students and adults in under-served communities through their Education and Community Programs.
The Moth has an enthusiastic following for all of its content. The Moth podcast is downloaded over 30 million times a year, and each week, the PeabodyAward-winning Moth Radio Hour is heard on over 400 radio stations worldwide. The Moth’s first book, The Moth: 50 True Stories, was a NYT Bestseller and its new book will be released in Spring, 2017. The Moth Radio Hour is co-produced by Jay Allison at Atlantic Public Media and presented by PRX.”
