The Moth Radio Hour returns to Michigan Radio
Due to overwhelming interest, Michigan Radio is presenting an encore performance of the special 5-part series The Moth Radio Hour, all this week at 10 pm. This live storytelling show, which recently aired on Michigan Radio Saturdays throughout August, received an unprecedented response from listeners.
The Moth Radio Hour, based on the New York phenomenon The Moth, features true stories told live on stage without scripts, notes, props, or accompaniment. Each Moth Radio Hour mixes humorous, heartbreaking, and poignant tales...all told with honesty, bravery, and wit.
Michigan Radio listeners reacted to these engaging stories with comments like these:
- "Wow! More, more, more!! I was so moved in many different ways by the stories I heard on your program yesterday."
- "Love, love, love The Moth! Can we have it all the time, not just through Labor Day?"
"The Moth Radio Hour is the best thing on Michigan Radio! It is refreshing, edgy, hip and full of substance. Please keep it up!"
- "There was an episode of the Moth Radio Hour a few weeks back that included the story of a comedian who told the story of his appearances on the Tonight Show as his daughter was battling and died of cancer. What a story! It has stayed with me for weeks and I want others to hear it."
Curious? Tune in to Michigan Radio at 10 pm Sept. 14-18 to hear what the buzz is about!
