CASE CONOVER

From 2010 to 2016, Case produced West Coast Live, San Francisco's national radio variety show, distributed by NPR. The program features performances and interviews with world renowned authors, musicians and other cultural figures, broadcast live each week in front of a theater audience. Occasionally, Case stepped in as guest-host for Sedge Thomson, welcoming such fascinating characters as highwire-walker Philippe Petite and astronaut Chris Hadfield; musicians Billy Bragg and Ramblin' Jack Elliott; literary luminaries Anne Lamott and Billy Collins. Case is also an award-winning storyteller for The Moth radio hour.
