174: Birthdays, Anniversaries, and Milestones

Dec 29, 2000
Birthdays, anniversaries, and milestones of all sorts...and how they mean something whether we want them to or not. A live show taped for our fifth anniversary, back in 2000, when we went on the road to Boston, New York, Chicago, and L.A. Featuring house band OK Go.
A co-production with public radio stations WBUR, WNYC, WBEZ, and KCRW.
  • On a commemorative day, it can be hard to feel a real sense of the past and of how time has moved forward. Russell Banks has a story demonstrating what it might take to do just that. He reads "The Moor," from his collection of short fiction The Angel on the Roof. (19 minutes)FictionHolidaysLive PerformanceRomanceTheater
