The ‘Cabinet of Wonders’ Opens on NPR

Recorded live on stage at the variety show’s performances

NPR is making John Wesley Harding’s “Cabinet of Wonders” available for a summer run.

The radio show is based on the variety show performed at City Winery in New York City, and features musical acts, comedy and dramatic readings. NPR crews have recorded the shows and now provide a “best of” for NPR audiences. Harding has been organizing them since 2009.

Each hour-long program and additional content will be available at the “Cabinet of Wonders” NPR website, as a podcast and also available on NPR’s mobile apps.

The first show is now available. It is described: “John Wesley Harding laments the Starbucks-ization of America, great music from Josh Ritter, Edie Brickell and Punch Brothers. Then questionable life advice from Sarah Vowell and Eugene Mirman, topped with Haley Tanner’s homage to a favorite writer.”
