BAM and WNYC present
RadioLoveFest
Produced by BAM and WNYC

Two iconic New York City institutions celebrate a medium that was born more than 100 years ago—radio. For this five day festival, WNYC takes up residence in BAM venues to reimagine some of public radio’s most treasured programs as live, contemporary theatrical engagements. Nearly all RadioLoveFest programs will be taped for broadcast on WNYC and on-demand listening on WNYC.org.
