“Host Oliver Broudy… introduced the evening as an exercise in seeing ‘if as a town we are capable of entertaining ourselves.’ Several standing ovations later, the nearly 500 people attending Saturday’s event at Bowker Auditorium on the University of Massachusetts campus seemed to answer in the affirmative.”

Any town with the kind of uniqueness found in Amherst deserves to celebrate it, and I am sure that there will be many more surprises ahead for fans of Amherst Live.”…………….. ……………… ……………….. ……………….. ……………….. ……………….. ……………….. ………………..

“Broudy sees widespread dissatisfaction with the national media. ‘Amherst Live,’ he thinks, could be a remedy for that. ‘We already grow our own food, we brew our own beer, we eat local, we shop local so now the idea is we produce our own culture locally as well.'”…………… ……………… ……………….. ……………….. ……………….. ……………….. ……………….. ……………….. ……………. …………………… …………….. ……………… ……………….. ……………….. ……………….. ……………….. ……………….. ………………..

“Think of “This American Life,” NPR’s radio magazine, “A Prairie Home Companion” and Technology, Entertainment, Design — the so-called TED talks — and you have some idea of what the creators of Amherst Live, a new quarterly live magazine show, are hoping to create…”
