KCPW Presents: “Best of the Best: The 2014 Third Coast Festival Broadcast”

botb_tile_2014Best of the Best presents the winners of our 14th annual TC / Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition. Innovative and insightful, the stories will engage, provoke, entertain, and transport listeners, proving that all you need to discover new worlds is . . . a little box and an antenna.

This year’s winners were especially memorable. Here’s a sampling:
Burroughs at 100, an extraordinary profile of influential author William S. Burroughs, hosted by Iggy Pop.
The Hospital Always Wins, a ten-year journey to discover why a talented artist is being held in a mental hospital.
Help Wanted, a delicately-told tale of a young man addicted to porn and his search for help.
Leaving a Mark, a riveting story of an ex-con who turns to Craigslist to have his swastika tatoo removed.

Best of the Best
 also features interviews with winning producers who give us a glimpse into the art of audio storytelling, and excerpts from the 14th annual Third Coast Awards Ceremony hosted by Roman Mars of 99% Invisible.

This special will air on Friday November 28, 2014 at 10 AM and 8 PM.
