We're excited to announce this Sunday, 12th April at 2.45pm (that's 7.45pm UK time) you can hear the BBC debut of Vito Racanelli's Do Days, read by E James Ford back in February for our Entrances & Exits event!

You can hear the broadcast either on the radio, or via the Radio 4 website at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b05qf586. And while you're waiting, here's a taste of what's in store - an extract of Vito's story, set to film by production company Heavy Entertainment!

We’re happy to say the stories and recordings from last week’s Kiss & Breakup show are now available for your reading and listening pleasure on our website – and if you’d like to hear the show in its entirety, you can download a free podcast of the night at the iTunes Store or on Stitcher Radio!

We want to say a massive thanks once again to everyone who submitted to the show – and especially to our writers, Meredith DiMenna, Olga Zilberbourg, Sara Dobie Bauer, Paul Florez, and Christopher Green, and our actors, Michaela Morton, Alex Gray, Hannah Seusy, Michael Petrocelli, and Seth James – you can find out more about them over on the Writers and Actors pages of our website.

We’ll be back at KGB Bar on Wednesday, 3rd June – we’re currently accepting submissions for that evening’s theme – Born & Bred. You’ll find full guidelines on our submissions page

In the meantime, however, we’re excited to let you know Vito Racanelli’s story, “Do Days”, featured in our Entrances & Exits edition back in February and recorded by the BBC, will be broadcast by the BBC this Sunday, 12th April at 2.45pm EST (that’s 7.45pm UK time) and available at this link. Make a note in your diaries - and in the meantime, why not listen to a story from our friends at Liars' League Hong Kong?
