Many St. Louisans regularly tune in to St. Louis Public Radio | 90.7 KWMU on Sunday afternoons for the nationally syndicated “To the Best of Our Knowledge” show that the station has been bringing to the region’s listeners for over a decade. This weekend will surely be no exception – but the topic at hand might come as a surprise.

St. Louis itself will be the focus at 2 p.m. June 11 with a show themed “Gateway Moments.” It’s the result of a live taping that took place late last month at Sheldon Concert Hall and was presented by St. Louis Public Radio, a service of the University of Missouri–St. Louis.

The May 25 performance marked only the second time that “To the Best of Our Knowledge”s – or TTBOOK – has conducted an on-the-road show with a live audience.
