BAM and WNYC present RadioLoveFest

Two iconic New York City institutions celebrate a medium that was born more than 100 years ago—radio. For this five day festival, WNYC takes up residence in BAM venues to reimagine some of public radio’s most treasured programs as live, contemporary theatrical engagements.

WNYC and WQXR members have special access to buy tickets starting April 21, and tickets go on sale to the general public on April 28. (If you're not already a member, it's never too late!) Purchase tickets at bam.org.

Nearly all shows taped during RadioLoveFest will be taped for broadcast on WNYC and on-demand listening on WNYC.org.
