Playtime Radio: Photography Tips, Art Gifts Wrapped Up in a Mersey Beat

Third Coast Review is collaborating with Playtime with Bill Turck and Kerri Kendall. We appear on their Sunday afternoon arts radio show once or twice a month. They’re on WCGO, 1590AM and 95.9FM, each Sunday from 1 to 3pm and streaming on Facebook. From now on, you’ll be able to listen to each week’s Playtime right here on our site. Here’s host Bill Turck’s description of what you’ll hear on Playtime’s latest edition. Hour One. What happens when a major guest cancels an hour before showtime? Can you say scramble to put together a great show? We check in for our weekly update for what's trending at Third Coast Review, including a Cedille Records event, a great new film reviewed by Steve Prokopy and recommended by Springsteen superfan Nancy Bishop. Talked with Timothy Hiatt, one of the top 10 photographers living today (see his work here), on picture-taking secrets that will astound your friends and family.  Plus some great Mersey Beat music...

Hour Two. Bill and Kerri with this month's final round of Blame Bill. Get in on next month's Blame Bill. Blame Bill for anything and everything. We'll play it on the air and you could win prizes from the swag bag: 331-318-2550, 24/7. Plus, give Art with the Art Festival Gift Card. Amy Amdur calls in with details. Plus the roundup of theater news from her Bishopness, Lainie Peterson, with her Theater Report.
