Salt Lake City, UT – Last month, the Third Coast international Audio Festival gave out its awards for the best radio documentaries produced in the past year. Third Coast is basically the Oscars of radio documentaries, and with RadioWest taking the holidays off this Thursday and Friday, we're serving a feast for your ears featuring some of the best radio docs from around the world. The special two-hour program includes this year's gold medal winner: a gonzo profile of a guy who goes by the name of Jay Thunderbolt.
The two-hour long Best of the Best: The 2011 Third Coast Festival Broadcast will air in lieu of RadioWest on November 24 and 25. The program's first hour of the will air during RadioWest's regularly scheduled slots on Thursday, and the second hour will air on Friday.
We'll admit it: Best of the Best is kind of a tease. There isn't enough time to air every minute of all the best radio docs from around the world in just two hours, so the program features snippets of them. If you'd like to hear one or all of the docs in their entirety, you can go to the Third Coast Festival Web site and get your fill.
