Chat with WLRN’s Wilson Sayre and other passersby about your favorite and least favorite things about Miami—all over the deliciousness of espresso.

Sign up for a private, 15-minute recorded interview with Wilson and tell her about a sound or noise that has impacted your life.

Retro Radio Display, Talks + Tours
View selections of beautiful vintage radios from the private collection of Harvey Mattel, installed throughout The Wolf’s first floor.
1pm | Internet Radio Panel Discussion
Speakers from Jolt, Klangbox, and Wynwood Radio will discuss the future of radio in a panel talk moderated by Bruce Pinchbeck of The New Tropic.
3pm | Harvey Explains It All
Join Harvey—major radio collector, enthusiast, and expert—to learn about the history of radio through a selection of gems from his personal collection.
Mini-Speaker Workshop with Moonlighter Makerspace
Craft a radio-shaped analog amplifier for your smartphone while you learn a little something about sound waves from the Moonlighter team.
Get acquainted with the long tradition of the radio play, in which acoustics are key and dialogue rules the drama. Before the show, experiment and explore with objects used to make sound effects in real radio plays!
7–8:30pm | Radio Plays
Join us for the world premiere of four original radio plays based on South Florida news stories and directed by Daniel Eilola. Each 15-minute play will be followed by a short Q&A session.

One family’s story about tackling the tough new “birds and the bees” conversation: climate change and rising seas
• No Title (play by Hannah Benitez, original news story by Kate Stein)
A tale of two unlikely strangers venturing deep into the Everglades in search of a rogue predator
• Cursive (play by William Hector, original news story by Julia Duba)
Two notorious graffiti vandals on trial for their crimes
• The Space Between Us (play by Vanessa Garcia, original news story by Christine DiMattei)
A kitchen conversation between two sisters on opposite sides of the Cuban Diaspora
