City Arts & Lectures

Program Schedule

KSFC 91.9
Sunday 7pm - 8pm

City Arts & Lectures was once known as "City Arts of San Francisco." Its title has changed, but the format is the same -- a weekly program of conversations with internationally-known figures in literature, criticism, science, and the performing arts. These guests offer the most diverse perspectives about ideas and values.

The series is recorded live before an audience in San Francisco. The on-air host for all City Arts & Lectures broadcasts is the Academy Award-winning actress Linda Hunt.

About the host:
Linda Hunt began her study of drama at age 13. Hunt majored in directing at the prestigious Goodman Theater School in Chicago and went on to spend several years in New York as a stage manager, director, and actress. She won two Obie awards and a Tony nomination for her early stage work. Hunt's film debut was in Robert Altman's Popeye, but it was her second film, The Year of Living Dangerously, that earned Hunt international praise. For her intelligent and emotive portrayal of Billy Kwan, a half-Indonesian, half-Australian male photojournalist, Hunt was awarded the Academy Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. Hunt's versatility is reflected in her eclectic roles, such as Alice B. Toklas in 1987's Waiting for the Moon and a fashionista in Robert Altman's Pret-a-Porter. Lending her rich, resonant voice to television, film, and radio, Hunt notably provided the voice for Grandmother Willow in Disney's Pocahontas and "the Witch" for Shrek. Most recently, she appeared in a recurring role on The Practice as the ornery, but fair Judge Zoey Hiller, and can currently be seen on the series NCIS: Los Angeles.  Linda Hunt has been the on-air host for City Arts & Lectures since 1997.
