City Lights with Lois Reitzes

Weekdays at 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. and Sundays at 7 p.m. on WABE's Live Stream

"City Lights" explores the ways in which people express themselves creatively and enhance our lives.

In addition to a wide range of music, "City Lights" covers theater, dance, pop culture, visual arts and more. WABE has long been a partner with many organizations in Atlanta and through "City Lights" we're deepening those relationships to serve our community with even greater arts and cultural content.

Eliot Bronson is a Baltimore-born singer-songwriter and Atlanta transplant. His first album in 2014 earned him comparisons to Jason Isbell, Ryan Adams, and none other than Bob Dylan. His new record is called "James," which is a play on the eponymous album title.

That song is called "I Wanna Go Home," and that theme of self-realization and healing and of home permeates her new record "Trinity Lane," named after her street. If her name sounds familiar, you probably know her dad, songwriter John Hiatt.

American playwright Arthur Miller famously dramatized the Salem witch trials — and the McCarthy era —with his play “The Crucible.” And now Aurora Theatre is picking up the story ten years after Miller’s play ends. The theatre is staging Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa's sequel, "Abigail/1720."
