Live and Local
On the Friday edition of "Live and Local," I'll talk with Carl Teichman of Illinois Wesleyan University. He's one of the organizers of the 21st annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Gospel Festival in Bloomington. And I'll chat with members of the East Central Illinois Youth Orchestra, in advance of next Monday's concert in Urbana.

On today's show, we'll hear a short scene by members of the cast of "Laura," a murder mystery being staged by the Red Mask Players in Danville and opening on Friday. And, live in our studio, Ben Bedford will preview his show with fellow singer-songwriter Tom Irwin at the Independent Media Center in Urbana Saturday night.
On the Wednesday edition of "Live and Local," we'll rebroadcast a show from last November about composer Charles Ives-a man musically ahead of his time, yet deeply rooted in America's past. Prof. Gayle Magee's book Charles Ives Reconsidered was recently out in paperback, and she shared with us a refreshing variety of his music.
On today's show, we welcome Bobby Reynolds--known professionally as Reverend Robert--for a live session in our studio. He's a master of pre-WWII blues who has become adept as well in ragtime, early jazz, Hawaiian and Caribbean music. He plays in Centralia Wednesday night and in Decatur next Tuesday.
On the Thursday edition of the show, I'll share two of my favorite segments from past shows, spanning nearly the duration of the program's existence so far: klezmer music played by Little Oy on the Prairie live in our studio, and a conversation with conductor Bob Thompson of The Baseball Music Project.
On the Monday edition of the show, I'll share two of my favorite segments from past shows, both of them live performances in our studio: a chamber ensemble from the Baroque Artists of Champaign-Urbana, and three talented Indian musicians from the Rhythm and Raag Institute at the University of Illinois.
On the Wednesday edition of the show, I'll share two of my favorite segments from past shows: a live performance by the Illinois State University Guitar Ensemble of a Bach Brandenburg Concerto, and a conversation with Dr. Deforia Lane, a music therapist from Cleveland who brings her healing work to an incredibly diverse population.
On the Monday edition of the show, I'll share two of my favorite segments from past shows, including a performance of holiday music by the Millikin University Faculty Jazz Sextet live in our studio, and a conversation with bandleader Juan De Marcos of the Afro-Cuban All-Stars.
The Friday edition of the show will be a special two-hour broadcast of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, adapted for the stage and for radio by Bah Humbug Productions and Parkland College Theatre. Surrounding its two acts, I'll chat with the project's creators and producers.
Winter Voices: An A Cappella Holiday" was produced earlier this month for our companion station WILL-TV and featured barbershop quartets, Sweet Adelines choruses and college groups. On the Thursday edition of "Live and Local," we'll hear all the live music from that program, plus an interview with WILL-TV program director David Thiel.
