"Live Wire" is radio variety for the attention span challenged. It's music from up-and-coming bands, original comedy, performance and scintillating interviews with writers, filmmakers, comedians and people who think cool thoughts. Hosted by Luke Burbank (Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, Too Beautiful to Live), the show is taped in front of a live audience in Portland, Oregon and is aired on public radio stations around the country.
Live Wire's mission is to harness the intimacy of the theater experience and the power of the public airwaves to enliven, inspire, and engage audiences -- connecting communities through live music and performance, unpredictable conversation and original comedy.
