"Inside the Q-W-E-R-T-Y World of Typewriters" - Airs June 12

They made noise. They required paper and ink. Their bells signaled the end of a line. Typewriters ruled the written word for most of the 20th century. In tonight's show, we offer praise to the glories of this Q-W-E-R-T-Y, clickety-clack world with stories from Montreal, Kolkata, Burlington and Richfield. You'll meet poets who type, men who fix typewriters, men who get paid to type and yes, you'll get a free typing lesson. So tune in as Todd Melby tours the keyboards of this Wite-Out world on a special edition of the Listening Lounge.
