Prairie Fire Theatre presents a musical tribute to the 1940s called "I'll Be Seeing You," in Normal the next two weekends. Producer, director and actor Robert Mangialardi will chat with me about the project on the Wednesday edition of "Live and Local." And we'll revisit a one-woman show called "And I Remember," to be presented this weekend in Urbana.

Singer-songwriter Human

On the Monday edition of "Live and Local," we'll hear from a singer-songwriter who calls himself Human. He sings, he says, "the songs of the American heart and soul." He'll sing some of those songs live in our studio, previewing his appearance at the Iron Post in Urbana Monday night, where he'll be joined by Shasta Homel and other local musicians.

Prof. Christina Bashford

On the Monday edition of "Live and Local," I'll rebroadcast a show heard in June with Prof. Christina Bashford, whose research focuses on performance history and the social and economic history of music. We'll chat about concert etiquette in the West End of London in the early 19th century and discover how it compares-and contrasts-with what happens at concerts today.

Audiophile-Music Society of Champaign County

I belong to a small group of men called the Audiophile-Music Society of Champaign County. The name belies our casual nature, as we gather once a month to listen to great music of all kinds and enjoy each other's audio systems. I invited the guys to join me on the Friday edition of the show and share some favorite recordings.
