On this week’s edition of Radio Times in Review: we’ll listen to Marty’s interview with actress KATHLEEN TURNER, who’s coming to town as part of the Philadelphia Theater Company’s 2016 Theatre Master’s Series. We’ll also listen to Marty’s conversation with controversial performance artist, KAREN FINLEY, who’s just released a 25th anniversary of her book Shock Treatment. Lastly, we’ll hear the history of the SS United States, which we learned about when we were joined by SUSAN GIBBS and STEVEN UJIFUSA. The historic vessel has been docked in South Philadelphia for 20 years, and it was just announced that Crystal Cruises will be purchasing the ship to send it around the world.
