The Dinner Party Download
Friday at 7 p.m. and Saturday at noon on WABE's Live Stream
- Hosted by Brendan Francis Newnam, Rico Gagliano
The Dinner Party Download is a fast and funny hour of culture, food and conversation; essentially, it’s “public radio’s arts & leisure section.” In every episode you’ll learn a joke … bone up on an odd bit of history and then wash it down with a themed cocktail recipe … meet artists of note (for instance Pharrell Williams, Scarlett Johansson, and Steve Martin) … have your burning etiquette questions answered by the likes of Mel Brooks or Aisha Tyler … savor an emerging food trend … and hear your new favorite song. Plus, unconventional wisdom from hosts Rico Gagliano and Brendan Francis Newnam.
