2005_04_artsairamer.jpgHousing Works Bookstore Café is self described as Soho's best-kept secret, and it looks like we're not very good at keeping secrets. Starting this Sunday (and recurring on Sundays) Air America Radio will begin taping their new "Liberal Arts" show live from Housing Works.
The program is hosted by Katherine Lanpher, who also co-hosts "The Al Franken Show" on Air America. In the continuing series she will entertain authors, singer-songwriters and artists in an evening of conversation and performance.

The first evening's program, which will be an hour in length, features
Allison Moorer (country singer) and Steve Earle (musician/author/playwright), who are currently on tour together. Coming up next Sunday, May 1st, is Jonathan Lethem, Eric Bogosian and musical guest Willie Nile.

For those not in the know, Housing works also offers other events as well as a cafe and thousands of new, used and rare books and records. 100% of the profits go to housing, health care and job training for homeless New Yorkers living with HIV and AIDS.

Air America's first taping of "Liberal Arts" will take place on Sunday, April 24, 8:30pm @ Housing Works Bookstore Cafe [126 Crosby Street (one block east of Broadway between Houston and Prince)]. To listen online or on a good old fashioned radio, check out their list of stations.
