Ccyale_240_graybg_small Climate Connections is a 90-second daily (M-F) module that's produced in partnership with the Yale Center for Environmental Communication and hosted by Dr. Tony Leiserowitz. It covers the ways climate change is impacting our lives, and what diverse people and organizations are doing to reduce the associated risks. From energy to public health, from extreme weather to the economy, we’ll connect the dots and bring climate change “down to earth” for your listeners.

Exploring_music_logo_small With the stock market crash of 1929 and the Great Depression settling in, orchestras and record companies closed their doors, composers stopped getting commissions, and musicians joined the unemployment lines. Interestingly, during these hard times millions of people had a radio and they couldn’t get enough of the free entertainment. CBS, NBC, and many other stations acquired the bankrupt recording companies and started employing musicians in big bands, operas, and orchestras. This unique twelve years ended with the start of WWII and Dmitri Shostakovich composing his seventh symphony dedicated to the city of Leningrad. This week on Exploring Music we will hear composers like Benjamin Britten, Samuel Barber, Dmitry Shostakovich, and Aaron Copland express these hard times.
