In the Loop

At last, the "Story Slam" line-up...

Posted at 11:15 AM on July 18, 2007 by Jeff Horwich

As I have vaguely promised for weeks now, it looks like the "Story Slam" will finally be on the air this weekend. In my humble opinion, it turned out pretty awesome. Much like our usual show -- but in a different way -- it's not like anything else on the radio.

Of course, for the broadcast we had to pare a two-hour-plus event down to an hour, which means many great stories didn't make the cut. We made our final choices based not just on quality, but on the desire to have a good mix of styles and approaches to the idea of "escape." Here (in alphabetical order -- not the order in the show) is the line-up for the broadcast:

Lucie Amundson
Sha Cage
Nancy Donoval
Bill Gurnon
Colleen Kruse
Linda Lee
Dave Mondy
Allan Staples
Dwight Wilcox

Listen Friday night (July 20) at 9 and Sunday night (July 22) at 6 -- and of course we'll podcast the show this weekend.

Very shortly we'll have the next Story Slam scheduled, and a theme set. Stay tuned!
