As part of the West Coast Live studio audience you’ll experience firsthand Sedge Thomson’s smart mix of music, stories, interviews and humor. Each week this 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. 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.
Over the years, Sedge Thomson has distinguished West Coast Live from any other show on public radio by interviewing the most original, outrageous, and thought-provoking artists based on the West Coast, or those stopping here awhile.
Other talk radio shows emphasize legal and political experts, Sedge engages novelists, filmmakers, comedians, actors, and poets to talk about the cultural forces they are creating, and the source of their inspiration.
Guests have included San Francisco Bay Area talents such as Pulitzer prize-winning author Michael Chabon, legendary beat poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti, our homegrown hyperactive comedian Robin Williams, and (now former) SFMOMA art director David Ross.
We're a special and sought-out stop for national and international figures including Gloria Steinem, journalist Studs Terkel, members of Monty Python, Pulitzer-prize winning playwright Wendy Wasserstein, and magicians Penn & Teller.In short, West Coast Live is your venue to hear some very good conversations.
