Bonnie Grice is a two-time Gracie Allen Award winning radio host, producer and interviewer. She is the producer and host of “The Song is You,” a weekly radio show that explores the impact of music in our lives; and the “Eclectic Café”- both of which are featured on Long Island's NPR station 88.3 WPPB in Southampton. A public radio veteran, she co-hosted the show “Anthem” on National Public Radio and has been heard on WNYC in New York, WGBH in Boston and KUSC in Los Angeles. Bonnie is also a librettist and author. She wrote the text for the two-act chamber opera, Mrs. Dalloway, based on the novel by Virginia Woolf, and she’s the author of From Z to A – A Classical Lover’s Alternative.
Tune in to hear Bonnie talk about her Harry Potter obsession, why she loves living in the Hamptons, what it's like to work at NPR, and how long it took her to find her true voice. Plus Bonnie and Walker talk about how they both deal with criticism, what it means to hit your creative ceiling, and- for the first time- publicly address their perceived rivalry. It's really juicy.
Is Walker dressed as a woman throughout the entire interview? Does Bonnie come bearing rainbow-colored gifts? Do they both break into an Italian aria? Tune in to find out.
The two photos discussed at the end of the interview (Bonnie then and now) are below. Which one do YOU wanna hear on the radio? (Walker chooses Bonnie on the swing :-)
