The Wire - Pt 1

And the Winner is

Today, we kick off our summer season with the incredibly successful series, The Wire. It's won a Peabody, a Prix Italia and the Director's Choice Award from the Third Coast International Audio Festival. And this summer, we're going to play the entire series. It's an audio experience like no other. And trust me, you'll never listen to music the same way again. The Wire explores the impact of electricity on music. Now, obviously, most of us take electricity for granted. But the power of the electrical current didn't just change the way we listen to music -- it changed the way we make it.
