On this week's theme-free show, we'll meet a local musician who's stripping down to his skivvies — and learn why he wants you to do the same. We'll take a tour of a rarely-seen, long-closed section of the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore. And we'll look at the musical that may very well inject new energy into one of D.C.'s oldest theaters.


[Music: "Every Little Bit Hurts" by John Davis from Title Tracks / "Turn The Cards Slowly" by Patsy Cline from Forever Gold]
