The Signal

WYPR-FM (88.1),, noon and 7 p.m. Fridays

Baltimore may not yet know it, but in Aaron Henkin, co-creator and producer of The Signal on WYPR, we may have the next Ira Glass. Henkin’s baritone voice is a natural for radio, and the show’s broad definition of arts and culture means that the listener never knows what to expect to hear on Fridays at noon and 7 p.m., when the hour-long show airs. Past episodes have included segments on subject matters as diverse as a long-time security guard at the Baltimore Museum of Art, makeshift architectural innovations in Haiti and the poetry of recovering addicts. While not all of these stories emerge from Baltimore, enough do to make us proud to live in a city that has such characters, even if we only get to meet them on the airwaves.
