LeVar Burton talks about his 23-year run as host of the public television series, Reading Rainbow, and his work today as an advocate for reading education – work that will bring him to Milwaukee this month. Later, music producer, musician, and Viroqua native Butch Vig discusses the state of the music industry and the new album coming out soon by Garbage, the band he co-founded in Madison in the 1990s. And we’ll hear a performance from the Waukesha-based band, Ian and the Dream, whose own new album comes out this week.
