We have seen the light!

Posted at 5:45 PM on December 1, 2006 by Jeff Horwich


little%20lite%20brite.jpgOk, so we're still working on the phrasing...but it looks like our next show will take us to some intriguing places by focusing on the rule that light and dark play in shaping both our holiday traditions and our generally moody and sentimental approach to this time of year.

Among the stuff we've got in the works:

  • A look at the cost of our holiday light obsession
  • One man's journey to get the best of Seasonal Affective Disorder
  • An exploration of how the blind "see" the holidays
  • Interviews with experts on how light and image can manipulate our senses this time of year
  • A new radio play, following in the tradition established by last year's holiday show

Anyone Jonesin' for a little more light this time of year? We've got your fix.
