Mission Statement

Live Wire's mission is to harness the intimacy of the theater experience and the power of the public airwaves to enliven, inspire & engage audiences - connecting communities through live music and performance, unpredictable conversation, and original comedy. We believe life is filled with inspired people doing fascinating and sometimes ridiculous things. We want to introduce you to those people. We believe artists are critically important to the world, and should be rewarded for their work. We believe "culturally relevant" and "funny" aren't mutually exclusive. We believe that through the shared experience of live theater and the intimacy of radio, we can tell great stories, introduce new ideas, spark conversations, and hopefully, elicit a belly laugh or two.

Description

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.
