Saturday Surprise

Saturdays 1p - 2p EST

Each week in this time slot, WUTC features audio documentaries, storytelling, music and more. It's your chance to hear something different.

We're proud to bring you fresh, surprising programming that's available only on public radio, where experimentation is encouraged, and new ideas are welcome.

“Are we really done with windows?” asks one of the characters in Courtney Maum’s new novel Touch.

He’s not talking about the operating system.

“I mean the architectural component that lets in light,” he says. “I mean, if I have a window, then—and this is really modern—I can just look through it and decide all by myself how to dress. I don’t need my home automation system to send me a text.”

Mimi Kennedy was destined for fame; as a child, she wanted to be an actress, and throughout her career, Broadway, the big screen and TV have served her well, making her face familiar to almost everyone. She's also an author and activist, and she's chatting with WUTC about her on- and off-stage roles in life, starting with her portrayal of Jan in both the original Broadway and National Touring productions of Grease.

The staff of WUTC wishes you and yours happy holiday cheer this season, and we’ll be spreading good tidings Christmas Eve and Christmas Morning.
