This American Life host/producer/creator Ira Glass will be at the Troy Music Hall December 1. We have a pair of the tickets -- which include a pre-show meet-and-greet with him -- and we're giving them away. Maybe to you.
To enter the drawing, please answer this question in the comments:
What's your favorite story?
It could be your favorite story from This American Life, or your favorite story from when you were a kid, or your favorite book, or whatever. We'll pick one winner at random.
The Troy Music Hall appearance is billed as "Reinventing Radio: An Evening with Ira Glass." From the blurbage:
Glass will talk about today's media environment, about how he makes "This American Life" in that context, and how he and his staff find compelling stories and make shows from them that are unique in broadcast journalism.
Onstage, Glass will combine his live narration with quotes and music from "This American Life", mixing them to re-create a radio segment before your eyes, explaining memorable, funny, and serious excerpts from the show from his point of view at the heart of public radio.
The show starts at 8 pm. Tickets start at $25.
