Everyone loves to play. And this summer, we’re readier than ever to have fun.  After being largely cooped up for a year, Americans are starting to get back out, explore the world, and discover (or rediscover) the things that entertain us.

This July 4th weekend, ABC News Radio presents a three-hour special called “Press Play.” Host Jason Nathanson explores how we’re being entertained now – what we’re watching, what we’re listening to, and what we’re doing.

Jason and the team of ABC correspondents will take you to the movies; to the nation’s newest National Park;  and to concerts. They’ll play Pickleball – the fastest growing sport in the country – and introduce you to some obsessed fans. They’ll listen to musicians who are finally getting to play together again.

It’s a tour of the things we love and can’t wait to start doing again. Join ABC News Radio and “Press Play” on July 4.

Listen to "Press Play" Sunday July 4th from 7 to 10 a.m. on AM 1370 WDEA, online at WDEA Internet Radio, on our free downloadable APP and on any Alexa enabled device!
