CHIRP Radio’s Live Lit and Music series, The First Time, pairs a reader’s personal story about a First Time event with a song performance by house band, The First Time Three. 

This unique structure allows the story to resonate with audience members as they experience the accompanying song.  The band takes special care to perform unexpected song arrangements, so it is hard to tell what the audience enjoys more each story or each song. 

Hosted by CHIRP DJ Jenn Sodini, past readers featured in this quarterly series include Shannon Cason, Joe Meno, Ian Belknap, Brian Babylon, Kelly Hogan, Erin Diamond and Ji Suk Yi.

January's theme is First Time: First Chance.  Readers are TBD.  The First Time series is a benefit for CHIRP Radio.org.  Tickets are $10.
