About PIE. Like any TV show, PIE will bring you things. Things that matter to our audience like art, music, history and the innovative spirit that makes our corner of the world a fascinatingly dynamic place.

In return, we ask that you bring us things too. We're looking for story ideas, images, videos... pretty much anything that reflects the heritage of the area between Vancouver, WA to Vancouver, BC, and from Aberdeen to Alberta, in all its glory, as quirky as it may be.

PIE is best when it's shared. Connect with us on Twitter with the #watchPIE hashtag, on our tumblr blog, or by sending an email to pie@KCTS9.org.

Bill Radke is the sort of person who has an entry on Wikipedia, but he's not the sort of person who makes a big deal out of it.

He is a familiar voice to the Northwest radio audience for his work at local stations KUOW and KIRO-FM. National radio audiences last encountered Bill's uniquely off-center take during his time hosting Marketplace Morning Report. Previously he co-hosted Weekend America and created the topical satire show Rewind.

In addition to his work in radio, Bill is a stand-up comic and took first place in the 1992 Seattle International Comedy Festival. He wrote essays to accompany photographs for the book "Seattle" and produced a series of podcasts, which sounds like something to do with fishing, but isn't.
