Radio Features New in March

A patchwork of people, sounds, and stories... Tune in at noon Saturdays Radiolab is an experiential exploration of themes and ideas. It’s a patchwork of people, sounds, and stories. Radiolab experiments with sound and style—allowing science to fuse with culture, and information to sound like music. Hosted by Jad Abumrad with co-host Robert Krulwich, Radiolab is designed for listeners who demand skepticism but appreciate wonder; who are curious about the world, but also want to be moved and surprised.

…and ideas worth spreading. Listen for it Sundays at noon An idea is the one gift that you can hang on to even after you’ve given it away. Welcome to TED Radio Hour—an investigation of astonishing inventions, fresh approaches to old problems, and new ways to think and create. Hosted by Guy Raz, each show is centered on a common theme—such as the source of happiness, crowd-sourcing innovation, power shifts, or inexplicable connections—and injects soundscapes and conversations that bring these ideas to life.

The Saturday Schedule Wacky. Intellectual. Diverse. Tune in Saturdays for the finest that radio has to offer. 9:00 a.m. (CT) Car Talk For more than two decades, Tom and Ray Magliozzi (aka Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers) have been America’s funniest auto mechanics. 10:00 a.m. (CT) Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me! For a whip-smart approach to the week’s news and newsmakers, listen no further than this oddly informative news quiz from NPR.

1:00 p.m. (CT) The Vinyl Café You’ll love these stories about Dave, owner of the second-hand record store where the motto is “We may not be big, but we’re small.”

2:00 p.m. (CT) Travel with Rick Steves Rick describes exciting destinations, but he also discusses staying healthy on the road, bicycling, sabbaticals, 11:00 a.m. (CT) This American Life pilgrimages, sailing, fear of flying, Explore a theme—fiascos, conventions, the job that takes over your life—through a playful mix of monologues, and more. “found tape,” short fiction, and unusual music. 3:00 p.m. (CT) Whad’Ya Know? noon (CT) Radiolab This comedy quiz show features This is a show where sound illuminates ideas, and Michael Feldman, who calls himself the boundaries blur between science, philosophy, the host and “Kosher Beefcake.” and human experience. It also features some great music. Tune in Tuesday, March 19, at 3:00 and 7:00 p.m. (CT) for We Always had to Sing: German-Russian Music in the Old Days.

?

Don’t miss your favorites... the Jim Cullum Jazz Band and Riverwalk Jazz is moving to Fridays at 9:00 p.m. (CT).

Retail in London is about to change Fancy window displays, cosmetics counters, merchandise you can touch, and other marketing breakthroughs sprang from the genius of Chicago native Harry Gordon Selfridge, who possessed guile, taste, boldness, the poise of a swindler, and the seductive charm of a Casanova— qualities that spelled success ... but also trouble. Mr. Selfridge is the true story of the man who opened the renowned London department store that bears his name. Jeremy Piven stars as the upstart American who channels the consumer culture of the future, inventing a shopping experience that is a cross between theater and fantasy fulfillment. Whatever the latest sensation, Harry hitches his star to it. Truly, in his personal life, as in his business, he is drawn to the sensational—which creates exciting complications for all concerned. Mr. Selfridge is a sumptuous new series from Masterpiece Classic airing Sundays, March 31 through May 19, at 9:00 p.m. (CT).
