Junctions & Sidetracks, Episode 3
February 16 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Junctions and Sidetracks: is an original radio series conceptualized by George Maurer and Anne Bertram, and created by Pine Curtain Productions for KBEM-FM, Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN.
It is the story behind the creation of Empire Builder; a musical about a time-travelling train. Conversations about family, history, race and forgiveness.
Three travelers, each on the cusp of a painful decision, meet on the Empire Builder train westbound from Chicago. The train becomes a time machine, taking them to major junctions in the past and transforming what they believe, what they remember, and what they are willing to forgive.
Empire Builder is about the ways the past is still present – in a world where the next station stop is 1889. But it may not be the past we think it was.
