It’s that time of year again for supporters of public radio—fall fund drive! Chances are, if you’re reading this, you know that already. You’re the kind of public radio listener who has favorite radio programs that you listen to on a daily basis. You know the voice of Frank Tavares (the guy who reads all the NPR funding announcements). You know, by the sound of your radio, what time of day it is. You’re a dedicated WFIU supporter. You even read the listener guide! So you know that fall is when most public radio stations conduct fund drives. Chances are you’ll likely be listening to WFIU during this year’s fund drive (October 25th through November 5th). WFIU is unlike most other public broadcasting entities, however, in that we conduct only a single fund drive per year (most other stations conduct at least two). It’s our primary opportunity to call on listeners to show their support for Morning Edition with Annie Corrigan, All Things Considered with Mark Chilla, Classical Music with George Walker, Just You and Me with David Brent Johnson, Wait, Wait . . . Don’t Tell Me!, This American Life, Harmonia, The Metropolitan Opera, and dozens of other programs they enjoy every week on WFIU. Over the past year your support has made possible special live broadcasts from the Jacobs School of Music, such as the final concert in the 2013 IU Summer Music series, the inaugural concert for the new Webb-Ehrlich Great Organ of Alumni Hall, and the memorial concert honoring the life of János Starker. Thanks to you we’ve been able to feature live, in-studio performances by the Kenari and Pacifica quartets, as well as maestro Amjad Ali Khan. On the news side, listener support makes possible daily reports from the Statehouse, courtesy of Brandon Smith. It also allows us to provide dedicated coverage of education issues through StateImpact (which this year received a national Edward R. Murrow award). And our news team presented a documentary on Indiana’s alarming rate of sexual assault of teenage girls. It’s often said that you can tell where your priorities lie each month when you look at your checkbook. I hope that as you make WFIU a part of your daily routine—no matter which programs you enjoy most—you will find time in your schedule and space in your checkbook to make a pledge. Thank you!

Membership: WFIU appreciates and depends on our members. The membership staff is on hand Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. to answer questions. Want to begin or renew your membership?

Artist of the Month Featured Listeners Spoke— and WFIU Listened WFIU’s featured artist for the month of Contemporary October is American pianist Edmund Battersby. Internationally celebrated After taking in the comments that Composer for his performances on both modern hundreds of listeners sent us, we are bringing back the programs to which they proved most loyal. Opera will be back on Saturday afternoons, preceded by an expanded version of Says You! (The Metropolitan Opera will be heard on WFIU when its new season begins in December.) Pipedreams rejoins the lineup Monday nights at 10. Music programming returns to Sunday afternoons, with Harmonia at noon, followed by With Heart and Voice and The Score. Sunday nights again will feature an orchestra, with the New York Philharmonic this Week back on the schedule at 8. The Wednesday night slot that the New York Phil vacates will be filled with Deutsche Welle Festival Concerts. Also in response to requests, The Thistle & Shamrock will stay on Saturday nights, but will be heard at 9 o’clock, immediately preceded by The Folk Sampler. Our digital-only channel WFIU2 offers you a second choice, almost always giving you music programming when the main channel is airing news, and vice versa. Fans of this summer’s Saturday afternoon lineup, including Ask Me Another, Wits, The Dinner Party Download, and This American Life can find those programs on WFIU2, starting October 5. Sunday afternoons again afford you a second chance to hear Car Talk and Wait Wait . . . Don’t Tell Me! Also of note on the new WFIU2 lineup is the addition of Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin weekdays at noon, the move of Fresh Air and Science Friday to an earlier time slot (weeknights at 7), and the addition of more BBC World Service news than ever. You’ll find both our new lineups visually represented in this month’s guide. WFIU2’s program grid appears on the back cover; the main channel schedule occupies the center spread. We truly appreciate having heard so many listener remarks, whether complaints or praise, over the last couple of months. To us, it’s proof that our audience is passionately engaged. Keep the comments coming by e-mail (, phone, and through our Web site. The conversation about what WFIU means to the community continues.

and period instruments, Battersby has been a member of the artist faculty of the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music since 1995. Educated at the Juilliard School, Edmund Battersby was awarded the prestigious Juilliard Alumni Award upon graduation. Shortly after, he made critically acclaimed debuts in London’s Wigmore Hall and the Alice Tully Hall in New York City. An avid recitalist, orchestral soloist, and chamber player, Battersby has performed at venues across the globe. He has appeared with the Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, and New Jersey Symphonies, been featured with the Tokyo, Orion, and Vermeer String Quartets, and performed under conductors Nicholas McGegan, Gunther Schuller, and Gerard Schwarz. Battersby has released numerous recordings for labels including Naxos, Musical Heritage Society and Koch. His critically acclaimed recording of Granados’ Goyescas made the Grammy Short list in 1992, and his re-release of Schumann’s Kreisleriana and Chopin’s Ballades, Nocturnes, and Waltzes was noted by Fanfare magazine as “simply a beautiful recording that should be heard by everyone.”

Edmund Battersby

An active pedagogue, Edmund Battersby is the artistic director of Harbor Music, which has been supported by the IU Foundation since 1999. He has given master classes at Princeton, Rutgers and Duke Universities, the Royal Irish Academy of Music, University of Leipzig, and the Euro Arts Festival in Halle, Germany. WFIU will feature performances by Edmund Battersby in our classical music programming throughout the month of October.

Mary Jane Leach

WFIU’s featured contemporary composer for the month of October is Mary Jane Leach. Originally from Vermont, Leach has become a noted composer of contemporary works for vocal ensemble. Mary Jane Leach’s formal education began at the University of Vermont before she moved to New York City to study music with Mark Zuckerman at Columbia University. Drawn into the performance art scene in New York City during the 1970s, Leach’s music focuses on the physicality of sound, its acoustic properties, and how they interact with space. A sought after composer, Leach moved to Cologne, Germany in 1989 where she served as the Composer in Residence at Sankt Peter Köln. Her compositions have been performed worldwide, and she has worked with notable artists, including Manuel Zurria, Emanuele Arciulli, Sarah Cahill, the New York Treble Singers and the Cassatt String Quartet. Although she has received considerable acclaim for her choral music, Leach’s compositional output also includes works for chamber ensemble as well as solo and electro-acoustic repertoire. She was selected for a prestigious grant from the Foundation for Contemporary Performance Arts in 1995 and was awarded the Miriam Gideon Prize in Composition at the International Alliance for Women in Music in 2002. WFIU will feature music of Mary Jane Leach in our classical music programming throughout the month of October.

Featured Classical Recordings

October 7–13 Domingo: Verdi (Sony Classical 88883733122) Plácido Domingo, tenor

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 Web site,, under the “podcasts” link.

Plácido Domingo has sung 22 Verdi tenor roles and has recorded all of Verdi’s tenor arias. Now, for the first time, Domingo presents a new side of his vocal abilities in this album of baritone repertoire. On this CD he assembles Verdi’s most beloved baritone arias from Don Carlo, Rigoletto, La Traviata, and Simon Boccanegra among others. Pablo Heras-Casado conducts the Orquestra de la Comunitat Valenciana.

October 1–6 Mosh Pit (Sono Luminus DLS-92167) ZOFO The Grammy-nominated piano duo ZOFO (Keisuke Nakagoshi and Eva-Maria Zimmerman) put their considerable keyboard skills to the test in an exploration of dance-inspired duet compositions by six distinctly American voices: George Gershwin, Conlon Nancarrow, Allen Shawn, Samuel Barber, John Corigliano, and Paul Schoenfield. The high energy interpretations explore evocative dance styles and rhythms, from Gershwin’s driving rumba in Cuban Overture to Barber’s sensuous Hesitation-Tango.

October 14–20 Cold Dark Matter: Music for Cello & Guitar (MSR Classics MS 1430) Patterson/Sutton Duo

October 21–24 From the Heart (MSR Classics MS 1458) Frank Morelli, bassoon Gilbert Kalish, piano Frank Morelli is probably the best-known American bassoon player of his generation. He is principal bassoonist in four major orchestras and a member of the chamber ensemble Windscape. Morelli has appeared in concert at Carnegie Hall, the White House, and at major venues throughout the U.S. and abroad. The works on this CD, by Hindemith and Ravel along with lesser-known composers such as Alexandre Tansman and Iván Eröd, span much of the 20th century. October 25–November 4 2013 Fund Drive CDs

The Patterson/Sutton Duo’s debut album is unique in that all of the pieces are originally written for cello and guitar. The idea of a cello and guitar album is a bit foreign to most listeners, and this collection takes us on a tour of the textual and sonic possibilities that exist between the two instruments. The album highlights many worthy but underplayed pieces in an underplayed genre.

To thank you for your support of programming on WFIU, we offer a wide selection of hand-picked classical recordings at various membership levels. Masters of the Bow: Cello is a two-disc set featuring recordings by the great cellists of today and yesterday; The Best of Jonas Kaufmann is a new release from the acclaimed German tenor performing twenty breathtaking arias from operas by Verdi, Puccini, Wagner, Bizet, and others.

October 20 – Eva Kor Eva Mozes Kor is a survivor of the Auschwitz concentration camp who, with her twin sister Miriam, was subjected to human experimentation under Josef Mengele. In 1984 Kor co-founded the organization CANDLES (for “Children of Auschwitz Nazi Deadly Lab Experiments Survivors”), through which she located 122 other living Mengele twins, as the experiment survivors came to be known. Kor founded the CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center to educate the public about eugenics, the Holocaust, and the power of forgiveness. She was the subject of the documentary Forgiving Dr. Mengele. Gena Asher hosts. October 27 – Wendell Berry Wendell Berry is an American man of letters, cultural and economic critic, and farmer.

His nonfiction explores the good life: sustainable agriculture, appropriate technologies, healthy rural communities, the pleasures of good food, husbandry, good work, local economics, fidelity, frugality, and reverence. Shana Ritter hosts. (repeat)

The new face of arts reporting As of this month, the WFIU’s weekly roundup of the local arts scene, Artworks, is ceasing production so that we may distribute arts and culture reporting throughout our broadcast schedule. Arts reports will now be heard between programs and during cutaways from programs such as Morning Edition and All Things Considered. Our locally-produced cultural reporting will continue to cover the fine and performing arts and literature, along with stories from the farther reaches of culture—historic preservation, sports, cuisine, folklore, storytelling. The reports will range in format from sound-rich features to interviews to profiles to audio postcards to headlines with audio bites. In other words, stories about all the ways we express ourselves. Stay tuned!

The Radio Reader with Dick Estell

This month on WTIU television.


Superheroes: A Never-Ending Battle Tuesday, October 15th

Courtesy of The Kobal Collection at Art

This miniseries examines the dawn of the comic book genre and traces the evolution of its characters. The “disposable diversions” were created by the children of immigrants whose fierce loyalty to their new country laid the foundation of a multi-billion-dollar industry. Interviews include Stan Lee, Adam West, Lynda Carter, and Jules Feiffer. Liev Schreiber hosts.

A Curious Man by Neal Thompson Airs October 1 A Curious Man is the biography of Robert “Believe It or Not” Ripley, the enigmatic cartoonist turned globetrotting millionaire who won international fame by celebrating the world’s strangest oddities. Ripley’s life is the stuff of a classic American fairy tale. Bucktoothed and shy, he turned his sense of being an outsider into an appreciation for the strangeness of the world. After selling his first cartoon to Time magazine at age 18, more cartooning triumphs followed, but it was his “Believe It or Not” concept and the wildly popular radio shows it gave birth to that made him one of the most successful entertainment figures of his time and spurred him to search the globe’s farthest corners for bizarre facts, exotic human curiosities, and shocking phenomena. Assisted by an exotic harem of female admirers and a devoted researcher who spoke eleven languages, Ripley embodied the spirit of Peter Pan, the fearlessness of Marco Polo, and the marketing savvy of P. T. Barnum. By the 1930s Ripley possessed a vast fortune, a private yacht, and a twenty-eight room mansion stocked with such “oddities” as shrunken heads and medieval torture devices; and his pioneering firsts in print, radio, and television were tapping into something deep in the American consciousness.

Christopher Reeve in Superman: The Movie, 1978

Truth, Justice, and the American Way (1938–1958) 8 p.m. During the Depression, the popularity of superhero characters opened the door for a new generation of artists and writers. World War II created a patriotic fervor for adventurers to represent the American spirit at war. But in the 1950s superheroes were caught in the fire of government scrutiny. Great Power, Great Responsibility (1959–1977) 9 p.m. In the 1960s, a new breed of superhero emerged in the pages of Marvel Comics, inspired by the age of atomic energy and space travel. Spider-Man, the Hulk, and others were the first to have “problems” with which an adult audience can identify, and contemporary social issues make their way into comic books.  A Hero Can Be Anyone (1978–Present) 10 p.m. Beginning in 1978 with Superman starring Christopher Reeve, superheroes were embraced in all forms of media and by all demographics. In 1986, The Dark Knight reflected Batman’s nocturnal underside, and Watchmen illuminated a violent and politicized world. In the new millennium, superheroes took over popular culture with feature films, television shows, and video games.
