Shades of Gray - Airs Jan. 10 + Jan. 17 + Jan. 24

I've never aired taken three weeks of Listening Lounge airtime to air a single program. But that's exactly my plan for Shades of Gray, an unusual documentary on a much discussed subject. Producers Jonathan Mitchell and Ahri Birnbaum-Golden present what they call an "audio mosaic and a stark portrayal of the intensely personal nature of our relationship with abortion." This program uses sound and music in a way that is seldom done in radio documentaries. One reviewer called it "impressive ... artistic and balanced." Shades of Gray won a Golden Reel Award from the National Federation of Community Broadcasters in 2004. Listen in.
