Studio 360 is in town! Come to the Getty Center for a live taping of this provocative and profound radio magazine, which explores intersections between the arts, popular culture, and everyday life.

Host Kurt Andersen talks music, art, and ideas with some of our city's creative movers and shakers.

Kurt Andersen

  • William Friedkin (director of The French Connection and the new Bug) and playwright Jon Robin Baitz (creator of ABC's Brothers and Sisters) talk about how they got started in entertainment.
  • Playwright and actress Iris Bahr, whose solo show Planet America was nominated for Best Solo Performance by L.A. Weekly, and whose new play Dai (Enough) was a huge off-Broadway success in New York, performs new material crafted just for Studio 360.
  • Hitmaker Alexandra Patsavas explains how she finds unknown gems as music supervisor for programs like Grey's Anatomy, and shares some of what's kicking around her iPod.
  • East L.A. contenders Quetzal show how they're pushing the boundaries of Chicano rock to a new level of cool.

Iris Bahr

Where else can a Freudian shrink analyze a videogame about bunnies, a home improvement guru rhapsodize about sheetrock, and a surfer deliver the entire plot of Moby-Dick in two minutes flat?

Host Kurt Andersen is a novelist (his book Heyday was published this year to acclaim) and journalist who founded the legendary magazine Spy. Andersen is also a columnist for New York magazine.
