Culture Queue 5-19-13: "Time to Come Alive"
This week, it’s time for graduation. While others crack up in the sun or lose it in the shade, it’s time to pick up those diplomas and grab your life, because you're ready to use it.
Tonight we look at stories that center around this theme of a life in motion. Producer Marcheta Fornoff sheds light on the life of a synth mogul, Shelby Thomasson adds a little spice to life, recently accepted college-goer David DeMark reflects on a life lived in two worlds, and Maarja Merivoo-Parro shares songs that comfort the soul of the exchange student.
Culture Queue 5-12-13: "Mother's Day Live from The Children's Theatre"
Tonight we present a special episode of our show recorded live at The Children's Theatre Company in Minneapolis. It's Mother’s Day here on Culture Queue, so as a special gift to all you hard-working moms out there, tonight’s show is full of stories to keep the kids attention so you can put your feet up.
Tonight we bring you a story of student parents from producer Mitch Skinner, Maarja Merivoo-Parro tackles the mother of all Estonian archives, managing editor Noel Clark gets a behind-the-scenes look at the world of ice cream trucks, and Amy Friedman shares the musical wonder of Koo Koo Kanga Roo with listeners. Reporter Mike Potter brings his daughters into the studio for this week's Top 7, and we ask kids and parents what makes them run late in our Alice in Wonderland-inspired Question of the Week.
Special thanks to this week’s co-host Marcheta Fornoff, live engineer Amy Friedman and The Children's Theatre Company!
