Live radio broadcasts, like Seattle Mariners games, are unexpectedly fun to watch. This morning, KUOW's Steve Scher will host a passel of guests for a special two-hour live broadcast of Weekday, which means you'll be able to see the pained expressions that accompany the awkward pauses as Scher asks Sherman Alexie and Visqueen's Rachel Flotard questions like "Have you read that book by that guy? What's his name?" Knute "Mossback" Berger, the Seattle Times' Joni Balter, and The Stranger's Eli Sanders will be discussing the news, as usual. Coffee and pastries available; bring your own vuvuzela to drown out Balter. (Town Hall, 1119 Eighth Ave, 652-4255, 9 am, $5; listen free on KUOW 94.9 FM)
