"City Lights" explores the ways in which people express themselves creatively and enhance our lives.

In addition to a wide range of music, "City Lights" covers theater, dance, pop culture, visual arts and more. WABE has long been a partner with many organizations in Atlanta and through "City Lights" we're deepening those relationships to serve our community with even greater arts and cultural content.

Emily Saliers is best known as one-half of The Indigo Girls – and while the Atlanta folk pop duo is still going strong, she’s finally done something she’s been meaning to do for a long time: Saliers' first solo record, “Murmuration Nation,” is out today.

Reality show “Atlanta’s A Drag” features five Atlanta drag queens and follows their lives in and out of drag. "City Lights" spoke with the team behind the show last year. Since then, they've re-edited the first episode and decided to self-release.

That episode of “Atlanta’s A Drag” will be available on Tuesday on the show’s website. “City Lights” host Lois Reitzes spoke with cast members Wild Cherry Sucret and Bubba D Licious, as well as with the show's producer Lauren Cribb, about their experiences shooting the show.

Comedian Tig Notaro performed her iconic “Hello, I Have Cancer” set five years ago.

It’s a set of raw gallows humor recounting tragedy after personal tragedy: a bout of intestinal disease, to her Mom dying, to a break-up, and then, a breast cancer diagnosis.

Fortunately, Notaro hasn’t experienced much tragedy in recent years and she’s since made frequent appearances on "Conan," "This American Life" and more.
