'Big Brain' Program With Max Allan Collins Rescheduled For March 2

WSUI and WOI's "Big Brain" program with guest Max Allan Collins, author of the graphic novel "Road to Perdition," has been rescheduled from Feb. 26 to March 2 at 10 a.m.

Live coverage of the Iowa Legislature will pre-empt the scheduled "Big Brain" show on Feb. 26, so the Collins appearance has been moved to March 2.

Hosted by Ben Kieffer, listeners will be asked to come up with questions covering just about any subject. Then, unlike other talk shows, listeners will be asked to call in during the live show to provide the answers or, at least, educated guesses. Collins will chip in with a few nagging questions of his own and take a crack at some of the queries that come up during the hour.

Listeners can also e-mail queries in advance to "Talk to Iowa" is broadcast weekdays 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on WSUI (AM910) and The WOI Radio Group (AM640). It can also be heard live on-line via the WSUI website at
