Good news! Whad’Ya Know is now available as a one hour show. The Whad’Ya Know Radio Hour takes two hours of Michael Feldman’s Whad’Ya Know and packs them into one. Listeners will still hear Michael talk to audience members, interview guests, and play the famous Whad’Ya Know Quiz. By carrying The Whad’Ya Know Radio Hour, KUAC will also be able to add one of public radio’s hippest, funniest and most respected new programs to the Saturday morning line-up, Wits.
Wits is a live public radio show that brings world-class comedians, actors, and musicians to the stage of the Fitzgerald Theater, where host John Moe gives them and the audience the time of their lives. Praised as “a wildly successful radio show, both a throwback to radio’s golden age and also wholly modern,” Wits mixes improvisation, sketch comedy, conversation, music, and genuine beauty in a program that’s been called a model for social media and audience engagement. Wits is being referred to as “A Prairie Home Companion for a new generation.”
Take it from Peter Sagal, host of Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me, who said, “If you’re a fan of Wait Wait, you should start listening to Wits. Immediately.”
