This Week on Been There/Done That...

The Magic Show
Host Marty Goldensohn takes us on a magical mystery tour. We experience dazzling tricks at "Monday Night Magic," an all-star magician's revue. We experience sleight-of-hand---on the radio! We hear the mesmerizing radio theater of writer and producer,Tom Lopez of ZBS Foundation; explore the roots of the African-American conjuring tradition; and deconstruct the alchemy of falling in love. Plus, the miracles to making stains vanish and the scams of con artists that make your money disappear. Poof! All that and more in this edition of Been There / Done That.
