Inside the Arts: Theatre Edition is a monthly radio program hosted by Jeff Culbert and Simon Goodwin. It can be heard on CHRW 94.9, the University of Western Ontario radio station, at 11 a.m. on the first Tuesday of the month. All of the episodes are posted here shortly after broadcast, and can be retrieved automatically in iTunes or other player software through the podcast feed.
This episode of Inside the Arts: Theatre Edition was broadcast on June 7, 2011. In this program, Jeff and Simon reminisce about their last three years hosting ItA:TE (né Theatre in London On the Air), then welcome their final guest, “ubiquitous local playwright” Jayson McDonald, who’s starting The Cannonball Cabaret on July 2 . The conversation shifts to developing professional theatre in London and expanding audiences, and then to Jayson’s introduction to theatre, comedy and writing. The last part of the show is dedicated to the Fringe circuit and the 2011 edition of London’s festival, which runs June 16 to 26.
Thanks to Jeff Culbert and Simon Goodwin for their great work over the last three years. Here’s hoping that CHRW will be able to find hosts of similar calibre as they continue to cover London theatre.
