The Swankiest Party on Public Radio

A few months ago, Andy Shallal, owner of Busboys and Poets, brought to my attention a radio show about The Great Gatsby on NPR. That show was PRI's Studio 360, a syndicated radio guide to pop culture and the arts. Studio 360 can be heard Saturdays and Sundays (repeat) on WAMU FM. And if you didn't get a chance to hear authors like Jonathan Franzen and others gab about Gatsby, here's your chance. It's a great webpage with audio bits and links to help you brush up on your Gatsby before April 24th.

The Great Gatsby was one of the "American Icon" features recorded in April 2007.

Listen to a clip:

Or visit the Studio 360 webpage for The Great Gatsby. A great resource.
