Each week our two-hour radio variety show broadcasts live-to-satellite Saturday mornings in front of West Coast theater audiences and coast-to-coast radio fans.
The rich mix of writers, thinkers, comedians, and musicians come mostly from the Pacific Rim and the Western United States, but also from further afield as feels right to do. Think Bill Moyers meets David Letterman, according to one reviewer.
Imagine the pleasure of watching a radio show come-to-life before your eyes. Immerse yourself in the company of world-renowned authors and musicians for live performance and spontaneous interviews in our intimate venues.
Join us for the first live show of 2013! From the legendary Yoshi's Jazz Club in Oakland at 510 Embarcadero West in the heart of Jack London Square, SEDGE THOMSON presents a special Fire themed show, featuring:
ROBERT GRAYSMITH, author of the fascinating account of Black Fire: The True Story of the Original Tom Sawyer - and of the Mysterious Fires That Baptized Gold Rush-Era San Francisco.
COLLEEN MORTON BUSCH, author of Fire Monk: Zen Mind Meets Wildfire the true story of the Buddhist Monks who defended Tassajara, oldest Zen monastery in the US, against massive wildfires in summer 2008.
STEVEN YOUNG, Executive Director of The Crucible, Oakland's non-profit Arts education facility, specializing in Fire Arts such as blacksmithing, glass blowing, welding, bronze pouring and fire dancing.
AUTHENTIC BAGEL COMPANY, brothers Mark & Jason Scott stop by to tell us about the delicious new bakery they have fired up just a block from Yoshi's in Jack London Square.
