Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

C'mon, admit've got a serious crush on Ira Glass of This American Life. Maybe it's an intellectual bromance, maybe it's a schoolgirl geek chic sweet-on-you kind of thing. You know it's the voice (who else can say "From Chicago Public Radio, this is..." and make you grin?) but how about in the flesh? Well, we can't guarantee you just how close to the flesh you'll get, but we can let you know that in late March you'll have the chance to get at least in the same room as Ira Glass, as KCRW presents "A Night With Ira Glass: Radio Stories and Other Stories" at UCLA's Royce Hall.The show "offers a look behind the scenes of This American Life and goes even deeper. Ira talks personally about the show, its origins, his influences and the elements that make a good story." As an audience member at this one-night only event, you will also have the opportunity to turn the tables on Glass and ask him questions. Glass will do two shows in the same evening and tickets will be available first just to KCRW subscribers. (We erroneously reported tickets would be first available to only subscribers, however that is not true--anyone can get their ticket on the 16th. But, hey, become a subscriber anyhow. It's a good thing!)

Tickets go on sale online February 16th at 10 a.m. and proceeds from the show go to support KCRW.
