The First Time is CHIRP Radio’s Live Lit and Music series. It pairs a reader’s personal story about a specific "first time" -- a different "first" for each show -- with a song performance. The First Time is produced and directed by Julie Mueller with Assistant Producer Bobby Evers and Host Jenn Sodini.
BAND: The First Time Four are Gerald Dowd, Steve Frisbie, Liam Davis, and Scott Stevenson. In addition to making their own music, they have played with the likes of Mavis Staples, Robbie Fulks, Kelly Hogan, Nora O'Connor and many other Chicago artists, and have several Grammy nominations under their belts.
