In a two-episode special event, Writers’ Voices unveils the makings of The Wizard of Oz and its prequel, Wicked, through biographers Evan Schwartz and Carol de Giere.
Tune in Friday, March 19 at 1pm Central (kruufm.com) to hear Evan Schwartz, author of Finding Oz: How L. Frank Baum Discovered the Great American Story, reveal both the spiritual teachings and life experiences that inspired The Wizard of Oz. Involving a Swami from the 1893 World’s Fair and a real yellow brick road, this is a fascinating inside look into a creative work that has touched all our lives. You might even find yourself pondering, “Am I a good witch or a bad witch…or both?!”
Sweet Talk Radio is the husband and wife team of Kathrin Shorr and Tim Burlingame. With a sound that has been described as alt-folk or americana-pop, the seasoned musicians have that magic chemistry of two people who have each others backs, and are passionate about making music. As they seamlessly trade vocals, guitar riffs and even instruments, they always give their songs room to breathe. The metaphors and imagery in the lyrics paint characters and whole relationships with just a few well chosen words.
Sweet Talk Radio will be at Cafe Paradiso on Saturday March 20th at 8pm. Previous Lyrical Venus guest Mary McAdams will open that show!
