He talks about how the event was first developed last year to replace the station's annual record sale. Like last year's concert, this year's event features a variety of musical entertainers -- cast members from musical theatre productions, two choirs, vocalists and instrumentalists. The concert is Friday night at 7:00 at the Glen Oak Amphitheatre. Gates open at 6:00.</P> Fri, 16 Aug 2013 13:00:00 +0000 Nathan Irwin 10492 at http://peoriapublicradio.org Diane Rehm headlines WCBU Gala http://peoriapublicradio.org/post/diane-rehm-headlines-wcbu-gala <p>Diane Rehm, host of NPR’s Diane Rehm Show, was the guest for Peoria Public Radio’s 1st Annual Gala at the Country Club of Peoria.
