Music and Fireworks

Jul 1, 2013

Independent producer Hans Anderson delivers a humorous piece about impressing the neighborhood with your fireworks on the Fourth of July, and Mark Perzel talks with  Conductor, J.R. Cassidy as the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra enters its 19th summer of making beautiful music and memorable  evenings  in the bandshell at Covington's Devou Park.

In advance of Father’s Day, Mark Perzel speaks with Jeffrey Brown, who has written and illustrated a charming book, Darth Vader and Son, which takes an amusing look at what would happen if Darth Vader took an active parenting role with 4-year old Luke Skywalker.

The classic Mad Magazine is celebrating 60 years of mocking politics, entertainment and pop culture. To commemorate this anniversary, they have released a new book, Totally MAD: 60 Years of Humor, Satire, Stupidity and Stupidity that includes a removable set of 12 classic Mad cover prints. Frank Johnson talks parody and longevity with Mad’s editor, John Ficarra.

Poetry takes on a distinctly feline voice with selections such as Kneel Before Me, Who Is That On Your Lap, and Some Of My Best Friends Are Dogs.
