FRIDAY PICK | “Wits” returns, with Tim Meadows and Rhett Miller


Guests have been having such a great time on Minnesota Public Radio’s show Wits, host John Moe told me when I interviewed him for a feature that they’ve been evangelizing the show to their friends. That good word has helped the freewheeling program book a star-studded lineup for its spring season, which opens Friday night with appearances by Saturday Night Live standby Tim Meadows and Old 97’s frontman Rhett Miller. A possibly unforseen result of the producers’ decision to make seating open rather than assigned is that the first thing people tweet about using the well-trod tag #wits tends to be the long line they’re waiting in before the doors of the Fitzgerald Theater open, so plan accordingly.
