Essayist David Sedaris will serve as a special guest host on the Selected Shorts radio show from April 28th to May 26th.
The organizers behind Sedaris’ segments plan to broadcast a tribute to David Rakoff, a celebration of Dorothy Parker, and one show focusing on the theme of “Family Values.” For New York listeners, the show airs on WNYC every Sunday on AM 820 at 1pm and on FM 93.9 at 10pm.
Here’s more about the radio show: “There is a theme to each Selected Shorts episode and performance. Several stories are presented around each theme. The stories are always fiction, sometimes classic, sometimes new, always performed by great actors from stage, screen and television who bring these short stories to life.”
