If you’re a public radio fan, chances are you know and love Ira Glass, host of the popular weekly show and podcast "This American Life". The show started at WBEZ in Chicago in 1995, and in the 20 years since has become one of the world’s most popular public radio programs. It’s even made its way into pop culture, showing up on tv shows like "Saturday Night Live", "30 Rock", and "Orange is the New Black".

When you think of the golden days of radio, you might think of fancy productions like “The Lone Ranger” or “The Shadow”. These programs have often been referred to as “theater of the mind.”

One local radio veteran is starting up a new troupe that he hopes will stage live audio-based productions for fans of not only the old-time shows, but more modern efforts like “A Prairie Home Companion.”  It’s called the Audio Air Force. There’s an organizational meeting at 7 p-m tonight at the East Lansing Hannah Community Center.
