The Roundtable

Weekdays, 9:00am

WAMC's The Roundtable is an award-winning, nationally recognized eclectic talk program. The show airs from 9am to noon each weekday and features news, interviews, in-depth discussion, listener call-ins, music, and much (much) more! Hosted by Joe Donahue and produced by Sarah LaDuke, The Roundtable tackles serious and lighthearted subjects, looking to explore the many facets of the human condition with civility, respect and responsibility.

The show's hallmark is thoughtful interviews with A-list newsmakers, authors, artists, sports figures, actors, and people with interesting stories to tell. Since hitting the airwaves in May of 2001, The Roundtable has interviewed the likes of Arthur Miller, Kurt Vonnegut, Maya Angelou, Madeleine Albright, Jimmy Carter, John McCain, Bob Dole, Bill O'Reilly, Steve Martin, James Taylor, Bill Cosby, Stephen King, Melissa Etheridge and lots of other really cool people. Plus, Wilco does our theme song. What more can you ask for?

Fred Applegate and Rachel York in Anything Goes.

    The Roundabout Theatre Company’s production of Anything Goes, winner of three 2011 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival and Choreography, opened last night at Proctors in Schenctady and runs through Sunday.

One of the greatest musicals in theater history, Cole Porter’s first-class musical comedy comes here following a triumphant run on Broadway where The New York Times called it “Musical-comedy joe" and USA Today hailed it as "Glorious and exhuberant!"

In addition to the title song, the show includes the Porter classics “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “De-Lovely,” “You’re the Top,” “Friendship,” “Easy To Love” and more!

Fred Applegate plays Moonface Martin in the show and joins us this morning. Fred has starred in London and on Broadway as Max Bialystock in The Producers. His Broadway credits include Sister Act, La Cage aux Folles, Young Frankenstein, and The Sound of Music.

Not a gallery, not an exhibition, but a visit into the artists world and workshop, the Open Studios Tour will gives a chance to connect with the art through the artist.

The Tour takes you through lower Washington County with some of the most striking vistas in New York State. You will enjoy the ride from studio to studio almost as much as you love the art.
