Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Audio
This audiobook collects the lighter moments from National Public Radio, bringing together moments from hit programs like Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me, Fresh Air, and All Things Considered. Emceed by Peter Sagal, this collection of comedic radio segments includes Terry Gross speaking with Joan Rivers, Drew Carey’s appearance on Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me, and Supreme Court Justices cracking jokes. In all, this funny collection is seriously great fun. The vast majority of the performers are either radio host or a show biz, so the audio work is top-notch. NPR fans wanting to relive some of the funnier moments on their favorite shows should snap up this audiobook. (Apr.)
