Radio’s Live Lit and Music series, The First Time, is unlike any storytelling show in Chicago. It pairs a reader’s personal story about a First Time experience with a song performance.
This unique structure allows the story to resonate with audience members as they experience the accompanying song covered by our house band, The First Time Four band. The band, has played with musicians including Robbie Fulks, Kelly Hogan, Nora O'Connor and more, and takes special care to perform unexpected song arrangements of said covers. It is hard to tell what the audience enjoys more each story or each song.
Hosted by CHIRP DJ The Moth champion Jenn Sodini, past readers featured in this quarterly series include Shannon Cason, Joe Meno, Dan Ponce, Brian Babylon, Tony Fitzpatrick, JC Brooks and Ji Suk Yi.
January's theme is First Time: First Blood. Readers are TBD. The First Time series is a benefit for CHIRP Radio.org. Tickets are $10.
