Posted January 2, 2014

Justin Hannah, the writer and director of the award-winning film "Consignment," will appear Thursday, January 9 on Trivial Thursdays, an excellent long-running radio show on WRFL 88.1 FM, the University of Kentucky's independent radio station. The program is hosted by Mick Jeffries, a popular Lexington DJ, writer, photographer, and graphic designer, and is broadcast live from 7:00 to 9:00 am every Thursday morning.

Trivial Thursdays is a college radio version of a morning drive-time show, complete with lots of talking, laughing, and music, that loosely revolves around the trivia of that date in history. The show features different guests each week, typically people doing exciting things in the Lexington area.

Justin will be talking with Mick about "Consignment," his filmmaking influences, and the upcoming "Unscripted" indie film series, which begins January 11 and runs through February 22. Also, with the recent passing of Phil Everly on January 3, the music of the Everly Brothers will also be a big topic of discussion (both Mick and Justin are huge fans of the Kentucky duo).

The other guests on the January 9 show are Eames Demetrios speaking about the Kcymaerxthaere storytelling experience, and Shawn Burns of the Lexington Calendar Project.
