Doctors_dilemma_artwork_small

The blowhards, the know-it-alls, the scrupulous and the impecunious are all targets for Shaw’s incisive wit in his classic satire of the medical profession. A well-respected physician is forced to choose whom he shall save: a bumbling friend or the ne’er-do-well husband of the woman he loves.

The School for Scandal

From L.A. Theatre Works | Part of the L.A. Theatre Works series | 01:57:56

The timeless comedy from Richard Brinsley Sheridan.

School-for-scandal-the_artwork_small The average American is exposed to a hundred thousand words of information each day, according to a recent study by the University of California-San Diego. But of the nearly twelve hours of media, music, and conversation we take in, how much of it do we accept as fact? The slippery nature of truth is at the heart of our story this week – a classic tale of rumor, gossip, and hypocrisy which remains both hilarious and timely in the present day.

The School for Scandal by Richard Brinsley Sheridan. Starring Julian Sands and Susan Sullivan.
Directed by Michael Hackett.

Cinco de Music!

From Wind and Rhythm | 58:30

While "Cinco de Mayo" officially honors the Mexican Army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, in American and elsewhere around the world the date has become associated with the celebration of Mexican culture, cuisine, and of course, music. This week on Wind & Rhythm we highlight the rich rhythms, the Banda beats, and the Mariachi magic as we dance and dine with music from Mexico.

The mission of Wind & Rhythm is to build a community of individuals who love wind bands; to grow a wider audience for the music bands play; and to provide a venue for band members and directors to speak about their art.

To accomplish our mission we produce both on-air and on-line programming that invites listeners to reconnect with their roots as members of bands; encourages listeners to participate in community music-making; and provides for listeners an opportunity to hear the best bands in the world.
