Look Up And Listen!

WFDD Event
Saturday, October 21, 2017 - 7:30pm

Join 88.5 WFDD for Look Up And Listen, a special evening event featuring a Dinner Party Download listening party, stargazing, and a bar meet-up!

Meet us at Hanging Rock State Park for Look Up And Listen, a special Dinner Party Download episode designed to encourage you to go outside and reacquaint yourself with the wonders of nature. Follow along as hosts Brendan Francis Newnam and Rico Gagliano lead you on an aural adventure through forests, deserts, and beaches where they'll encounter Neil deGrasse Tyson, Fleet Foxes, Feist, and more. You'll hear chats on the influence of nature on creative work and suggestions, wisdom, and songs to enhance your experience.

Plus, there'll be s'mores! Bring a picnic to have while you listen, and enjoy dessert on us. We'll provide all the necessary accoutrements, right down to the campfire! After the episode concludes, you're invited to explore the stars with the Forsyth Astronomical Society! This weekend will be the peak of the Orionid Meteor Shower. Telescopes will be set up for you to observe celestial objects in the night sky.

Later, follow us to Green Heron Ale House, adjacent to Hanging Rock State Park, where you'll get your very own 88.5 WFDD "Radio For Thirsty Minds" pint glass, filled with your choice of brew from the bar-- it's on us!
