11 Central Ave...the radio comic strip. Come hear something new. Airing Fridays on Chicago Public Radio's Morning Edition and on WUSM Hattiesburg MS. Airing Saturdays on WLRN Miami's Weekend Edition. Airing Sundays on WBUR Boston's and KUOW Seattle's Weekend Edition. Welcome to KUT Austin's WESUN, and WUGA, Athens, Georgia! This is what Torey Malatia, President of WBEZ in Chicago, has to say about the audience's response to the show: "I'm constantly amazed by our Chicago audience, and your understanding of them so far away in Boston. Counter to the conventional wisdom, the public radio audience is not resistant to well-crafted innovation and experimentation. More striking is that our audience expects us to be striving to be creative, to work harder to enrich their listening and living experiences. When your serial '11 Central Ave' is described by listeners in ever increasing numbers as an anticipated event within Morning Edition, during radio's most competetive time slot, something significant has happened. When those listeners in our area who live within the range of other stations running the NPR feed prefer ours specifically to hear your brief dramatic metaphor of modern life, you can take pride in a significant accomplishment. I hope '11's' success continues apace. And I admire your insight that led to an enhancement that our audience enjoys."
