- "A Year After Its Debut, The Song 'Cups' Becomes A Hit" -- I forgot to include this one the other week, but I was highly entertained by this All Things Considered piece about the history of the 'Cups' song-- you have to click it to hear the 1928 version! I was reminded of the story the other night when Hubby and I finally got around to watching Pitch Perfect, which was a good time.
- "Not My Job: Tony Danza Plays Our Version of 'Who's the Boss?'" -- If you're not already listening to Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! then you need to remedy your error immediately. You can start right now by listening to last week's show, and this particular segment was just freaking awesome.
- "MLK's Dream Across Decades" -- This week's coverage of news about the 50th anniversary included many different historical pieces, but I really liked this personal perspective from a man who attended the March in 1963 on Tell Me More.
- "50 Years After March On Washington, John Lewis Still Fights" -- Of all the people who can give personal accounts from 50 years ago, Rep. John Lewis's perspective is one that I find the most interesting, and this interview with Morning Edition is definitely worth a listen.
- "Something Was Missing From The March On Washington Anniversary" -- I saw this piece on the NPR Facebook feed, and I was curious about the headline. I shouldn't have had a hard time figuring out the missing piece, as it's clear just how divided the political parties when it comes to race. I can't believe that not one invited Republican chose to speak at such an historical event. Shameful.
Until next time,
