In September of 1978, representatives of 32 public radio stations gathered in Washington, D.C. to consider the prospects for a morning national news magazine. The stations were looking for a show that would offer more substance than most commercial stations were offering during their morning drives, and something more consistent than what public radio was offering. Station reps felt the morning show ought to be more of a mix of “news/public affairs and human affairs, including arts and cultural material.” The stations and NPR proposed a two-hour program that might be called something like This Morning in [My City]. They envisioned a program that “would recognize that listeners in each city have more than a strictly local view—they have an expectation that This Morning in [My City] includes both a national and an international view.” After the meeting, NPR guru Jim Russell drafted a memo in which he outlined the goals, mission, content, and feel of a morning show on public radio. The quotes above come from that memo, which I ran across while at a public radio conference two months ago. Specifically, Russell wrote, the “sound” the stations wanted was more “an attitude [that] we’re all in this together.” He noted that public radio listeners wanted a “balanced” program, “not the tormented freneticism of top-40 or all-news, but rather the sense of forward movement, of activity, of purpose which accompanies our mornings.” On November 5, 1979, a year after that memo was drafted, Morning Edition went on the air, hosted by Bob Edwards and Barbara Hocter. In 2004, Steve Inskeep and Renee Montagne took over hosting duties, with David Greene joining the crew in 2012, the same year Annie Corrigan became the WFIU host. Thirty-five years after that small gathering in Washington, 12 million people listen every week to get their first news of the day from Morning Edition. Thousands of Hoosiers tune to WFIU to get their daily fix of balanced news, sans “freneticism.” When I read Jim Russell’s memo I was reminded that we can never know where the next great idea is coming from, or where it will take us. Our actions today may have profound ramification decades down the road. I hope that whatever the changes, public broadcasting will always be grounded in balance, civility, and diversity, fueled by the fundamental idea that “we’re all in this together.”

Colin Andrews

WFIU’s Featured Artist for the month of November is British organist Colin Andrews. A world-renowned recitalist, teacher, and lecturer, Andrews is currently an adjunct professor of music at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music. As both a solo recitalist and in duo with his wife, organist Janette Fishell, Andrews has performed at many of the world’s most prestigious venues, including

Featured Contemporary Composer WFIU’s featured contemporary composer for the month of November is Evan Chambers. Originally from Alexandria, Louisiana, Chambers is currently Professor and Chair of Composition at the University of Michigan. A traditional Irish fiddler as well as a composer, Chambers’ music often blurs the line between folk and classical. Raised in suburbia, he found himself between rural and urban society, and his musical interests were influenced by his father’s equally enthusiastic renditions of Tchaikovsky on the violin and John Henry on the fivestring banjo. For his solo album Cold Water Dry Stone, Chambers approached each work based on his personal encounters with the traditional musics of Ireland, Albania, and the United States. The music for the album was composed after he visited Albania and features soprano Jennifer Goltz and the

London’s Royal Festival Hall, King’s College in Cambridge, Tokyo’s Suntory Hall, the Hong Kong Cultural Center, Moscow Conservatoire, and the Cathedral of Notre Dame, Paris. He has also appeared in leading halls and cathedrals across the United States, South America, Australia, Thailand, Singapore, South Korea, South Africa, and Europe. Born in Bristol, England, Andrews studied at London’s Royal Academy of Music under professors Douglas Hawkridge and Margaret McDonald. He later moved to Geneva, Switzerland where he was a student of Lionel Rogg. Following his return to Britain he studied privately for two years with Dame Gillian Weir. An active teacher and lecturer, Andrews has given presentations and masterclasses at the Franz Liszt Academy, Taiwan Theological College, Emory University, and the AGO National Convention. Most recently, he completed a 15-engagement tour of Asia and Australia, where he performed and gave masterclasses in Beijing, Tianjin, Hangzhou, and Hong Kong, China; Sydney, Australia; and Daegu and Seoul, South Korea.

In addition to his performing and teaching engagements, Andrews has served as a jury member for the International Organ Competition at the University of Michigan and for both the 1995 and 1997 J.P. Sweelinck Competitions in Gdansk, Poland. He was also the jury president and a recitalist in Poznan, Poland for the 2006 Felix Nowowiejski International Organ Competition. In recognition of his distinguished performing career, Andrews was bestowed an associateship by The Royal Academy of Music in London. A recipient of numerous awards and honors, he was a prizewinner at the 1980 and 1982 Dublin International Organ Competitions in Ireland. In 2012, he was made a “Membre d’honneur” of the Association Grand Orgue Trinité Messiaen. Featured on the Priory and Zig Zag labels, Andrews is currently set to record the last installment (Volume VII) of the complete organ works of Olivier Messiaen in IU’s Auer Hall. Released on the Gothic/ Loft label, the series is distributed worldwide under the auspices of Naxos. WFIU will feature performances by Colin Andrews in our classical music programming throughout the month of November.

new music ensemble Quorum, with whom Chambers serves as resident composer. In February 2008, Chambers’ orchestral song cycle The Old Burying Ground was performed in Carnegie Hall. The piece incorporates aspects of Irish traditional music, American folk song, Sacred Harp singing, and Albanian polyphony, in addition to European classical music. Chambers received his undergraduate degree in music from Bowling Green State University and his master’s and doctoral degrees from the University of Michigan. His composition teachers include William Albright, Leslie Bassett, Nicholas Thorne, and Marilyn Shrude, with studies in electronic music with George Wilson and Burton Beerman. Recognized by the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the International Luigi Russolo Competition, the Vienna Modern Masters Orchestral Competition, the American Composers Forum, and the Tampa Bay Composers Forum, Chambers’ works have been performed by the Cincinnati, Kansas City, Memphis, New Hampshire, and Albany Symphonies.

A recipient of individual artist grants from Meet the Composer, the Arts Foundation of Michigan and ArtServe Michigan, Chambers has also been a resident of the MacDowell Colony. He has received commissions from the Albany Symphony, The USMA Wind Ensemble, members of the Cleveland and St. Paul Chamber Orchestras, Quorum, the Greene String Quartet, the Detroit Chamber Winds & Strings, and the University of Michigan Bands, among others. WFIU will feature music of Evan Chambers in our classical music programming throughout the month of November.

WFIU’s featured jazz artist for November is alto saxophonist Kenny Garrett. Born in 1960, Garrett is one of several modern-day jazz stars such as pianist Geri Allen and saxophonist James Carter to come out of the city of Detroit. A three-time Grammy award nominee, Garrett made his debut as a leader in 1984 and spent five years playing with trumpeter Miles Davis. His latest release, Pushing the World Away, is his 19th CD. His sound has been described as “edgy and acidic,” and he has been frequently praised for the melodic strength of his compositions. Garrett’s recordings both as a leader and a sideman will be highlighted every Monday in November on our afternoon jazz program Just You and Me, airing from 3:30–5 p.m.

Featured Classical Recordings Selections from each week’s featured recording can be heard throughout WFIU’s local classical music programming. A weekly podcast of our featured classical recordings is available through our website, wfiu.org, under the “podcasts” link. November 4–10 Bach: Six Sonatas for Violin and Piano (ECM New Series 2230/31) Michelle Makarski, violin Keith Jarrett, piano J. S. Bach revised and polished his six sonatas for violin and harpsichord over several decades. The music anticipates the classic duo sonata, with violin and keyboard meeting on equal terms. This album is Keith Jarrett’s first classical recording since his Mozart piano concertos discs of 1996.

November 11–17 Cimarosa: Overtures, vol. 3 (Naxos 8.572734) Sinfonia Finlandia Patrick Gallois, conductor

Each of his Six Caprices from 1928 is a musical parody of another composer, and Les Petits métiers recall the swift characterizations found in the baroque keyboard suites of Couperin.

The most popular Italian opera composer of the second half of the 18th century, Domenico Cimarosa composed more than 65 operas that were performed all over Europe, as well as a significant body of instrumental music and works for the church. His overtures are remarkable for their melodic invention, assured handling of the orchestra, and sheer vitality.

Radiolab

Sundays at 11 a.m. Each hour of Radiolab takes a big idea and chases it, going wherever our whims take us. Along the way, hosts Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich interview, argue, imagine, and discover the hidden connections that make this idea so powerful. November 3 Fund Drive 2013 editon November 10 Emergence What happens when there is no leader? Starlings, bees, and ants manage just fine. In fact, they form staggeringly complicated societies—all without a Toscanini to conduct them into harmony. This hour of Radiolab, we ask how this happens. We gaze down at the bottom-up logic of cities, Google, and even our very own brains with a mathematician, an economist, ant experts, neurologists, and fire-flyologists. November 17 Morality Where does our sense of right and wrong come from? We peer inside the brains of people contemplating moral dilemmas. We watch chimps at a primate research center sharing blackberries; observe 3-year-olds fighting over toys, and tour Eastern State Penitentiary—the country’s first prison. Plus, a story of land grabbing, indentured servitude, and slumlording in the fourth grade. November 24 Where Am I? How does your brain keep track of your body? This hour, Radiolab tells stories of the mind-body link gone terribly wrong. We’ll puzzle through the mysteries of missing limbs and hear about a novel treatment involving optical illusions. Plus, the story of a butcher who suddenly lost his entire sense of touch, and we hear from pilots who suffer out-of-body experiences while flying fighter jets.

Community Events

Meet April Erisman

IU Auditorium An Evening with David Sedaris Thursday, November 7, 8 p.m.

April Erisman has joined the staff of WTIU and WFIU in the newly developed position of events coordinator. April’s career with PBS started in 1997 in Dayton, Ohio at the ThinkTV Network, which is the most widely used nonprofit, educational, and cultural service in southwestern Ohio, watched each week by more than 750,000 viewers. She was employed there as the administrative assistant to the president and general manager. It was in that position that she developed a passion for the missions of PBS and NPR. “The work that public television and public radio do is so vitally important,” she says. They are the only places that provide educational, enlightening, and entertaining programming that is so difficult to find anyplace else.” In 1998, April was promoted to corporate development and research assistant, where she gained insight and experience helping with many of the events that were held at the station. In 2001, she was asked to assume the Special Events and Programs Manager position, managing their largest yearly community fundraising event, the GreatTV Auction, and Speaking of Women’s Health, Dayton’s largest women’s conference. Before her departure in May of 2012, her events raised over five million dollars for the mission she finds so important— helping NPR and PBS. After moving here a little over a year ago, April finds that Bloomington is a great place to call home. “Bloomington is a wonderful community. It has so much to offer its residents and I’m enjoying discovering all that it has to offer.”

Songs of Willow Frost by Jamie Ford Airs: November 6 to December 6 From Jamie Ford, author of the beloved New York Times bestselling novel Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, comes a much-anticipated second novel. Set against the backdrop of Depression-era Seattle, Songs of Willow Frost is a tale of two souls—a boy with dreams for his future and a woman escaping her haunted past— both seeking love, hope, and forgiveness. Twelve-year-old William Eng, a Chinese-American boy, has lived at the Sacred Heart Orphanage ever since his mother’s listless body was carried away from their small apartment five years ago. On his birthday—or rather, the day the nuns designate as his birthday— William and the other orphans are taken to the historic Moore Theatre, where William glimpses an actress on the silver screen who goes by the name of Willow Frost. Struck by her features, William is convinced that the movie star is his mother, Liu Song. Determined to find Willow and prove that his mother is still alive, William escapes from Sacred Heart with his friend Charlotte. The pair navigates the streets of Seattle, where they must both survive and confront the mysteries of William’s past and his connection to the exotic film star. The story of Willow Frost, however, is far more complicated than the Hollywood fantasy William sees onscreen. Songs of Willow Frost takes us on a sweeping emotional journey that will resonate with anyone who has ever longed for family and a place to call home. Novelist Susan Wiggs called the story “one you’ll savor, and then think about long after the book is closed.” Page 6 / Directions in Sound / November 2013

website, I immediately realized that this would be a perfect match.” Anja came to Bloomington in July and was assigned an internship to WFIU’s arts desk. She spent the next two months steeping herself in good audio storytelling and getting her radio chops. A quick study, Anja learned everything from field recording to digital sound editing. The intrepid intern took on subjects from music marketing in the online era to the contemporary painting scene in Berlin. Her final task was to package our interview with the Swedish string trio Väsen, who arrived in Bloomington for the Lotus Festival the very weekend she was leaving. Now settling into university life in Germany, Anja took a moment to reflect on her internship.

“At WFIU, there’s a wonderful vibe in the office, which makes it feel less like work and more like fun,” she wrote us. “Everyone really works together as a team, and I was welcomed very warmly into that team. “The experience taught me how to create a radio feature from beginning to end: from choosing a topic and researching it, to setting up and conducting the interview, to editing the piece for broadcast and podcast, to writing (and editing) the story and publishing it on the website. “It’s a fantastic feeling to do something that actually matters, that people will hear. I think it’s safe to say that WFIU gave me a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and I look back on my time there with a huge smile on my face which probably expresses more than words.” Thanks Anja!

Fall Gift Planning The fall has traditionally been a popular time for giving as people review their finances and take steps to assure they have fulfilled their charitable commitments for the year. As you consider your plans, remember that incentives for making charitable gifts continue to be an important part of our nation’s tax laws. Gifts of cash as well as stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and other assets offer attractive tax benefits, but only if completed before the end of the year. You may also find that the final months of the year are an ideal time to review your long-range financial and estate plans. Careful planning of charitable gifts can play a vital role in assuring continued economic security for you and loved ones while making what may be your gift of a lifetime. As you pause to plan between now and December 31, consider the consistently high quality of programs and services public radio provides to you and your family. The greater community benefits as well through thoughtful gifts from people like you—the good friends of public radio. WFIU wouldn’t be the same without you, and you wouldn’t be the same without WFIU. For information on making an end-of-the-year gift to the station, contact Nancy Krueger at 812855-2935 or nkrueger@indiana. edu. Or go to wfiu.org/support for information on specific types of gifts. Sample wording to leave a bequest to WFIU – “I hereby give, devise, and bequeath to the Indiana University Foundation, a nonprofit corporation with principal offices in Bloomington, Indiana, [the sum of /a percentage of/] my estate to be used for the benefit and unrestricted support [or describe specific purpose, i.e., news broadcasting or classical music] of WFIU Public Radio from Indiana University, Bloomington campus.”
