"This is Studio 360, I'm..."

Friday, February 26, 2010 - 12:19 PM

Would you trust this man with your radio program?

First movie greatness; then starring in TV's smartest, funniest show; co-hosting the Academy Awards -- all culminating in his performance as guest host of Studio 360.

It is the role of Alec Baldwin's lifetime.

You heard it right.  Kurt Andersen will leave the keys when he goes on vacation, and Alec will take over for the March 26-28 show.

Alec is a longtime Studio 360 listener and fan of public radio.   Recently he began hosting New York Philharmonic This Week.   For his Studio 360 debut, Alec has invited Laura Linney (currently in Donald Margulies' Time Stands Still on Broadway), and writer Mary Karr, whose book Lit: A Memoir was one of the New York Times' 10 best books of 2009.

You'll want to go to there.

I loved Alec's show. Is there nothing this guy can't do? He is an amazing actor, comic genius, and now he charms the radio waves too.

I could listen to Alec's voice for hours. I really enjoyed his witty, intelligent discussion and thought he had a great choice of guests.

Alec, you are THE man!

The most intelligent and urbane man in television and motion pictures is going to conquer radio, too. With two whip smart women on the air !

Ms. Linny and Ms. Karr are the best in their fields. Such enormous talents--Ms. Linny's hands shaking in "Primal Fear" and Ms. Karr talking about and surviving our Texas...Wow.

What a delight.

I will go to there...
