Live Wire is a one-hour weekly radio variety show recorded in front of a live audience. It’s music, it’s conversation, it’s sketch comedy. It’s the show that dared to put tap dancing, juggling and ballet on the radio. Live Wire highlights the best musicians and most fascinating writers, poets, dignitaries, artists we can find in the even more beautiful pacific northwest.

This week Live Wire Radio unplugs for a series of special Studio Sessions. You'll hear what comedian Eugene Mirman from Bob's Burgers would say to a class of graduating seniors, how legendary documentarian D.A. Pennebaker makes his camera the least important thing in the room with Chris Hegedus and tips for surviving on the road as well as some great music from folk troubadour Steve Poltz.
