Secretary of Defense), former Senator Trent Lott and Deputy Chief of Staff Harold Ickes, as well as interviews with dozens of journalists, members of the Republican opposition, childhood friends, staffers from Clinton’s years as governor of Arkansas and biographers. “William Jefferson Clinton is a lightning rod in American history,” notes Samels, “It’s hard to find anyone who is neutral about the man or his presidency. The complex dynamic between his public accomplishments and his personal foibles makes him endlessly fascinating,”

“ At American Experience we like to explore the people who have shaped the times in which they live, and Bill Clinton, both charismatic and confounding, certainly had a profound effect on the country during his presidency.”

KQED Public Radio

The film follows Clinton across his two terms as he confronted some of the key forces that would shape the future, including partisan political warfare and domestic and international terrorism, and as he struggled, with uneven success, to define the role of American power in a post–Cold War world. Most memorably, it explores how Clinton’s conflicted character made history, even as it enraged his enemies and confounded his friends. Clinton also features unprecedented access to scores of Clinton insiders, including White House Press Secretary Dee Dee Myers, White House Counsel Bernard Nussbaum, former White House Chief of Staff Leon Panetta (current

From draft dodging to the Dayton Accords, from Monica Lewinsky to a balanced budget, the presidency of William Jefferson Clinton veered between sordid scandal and grand achievement. In Clinton, the latest installment in a critically acclaimed collection of presidential biographies, American Experience explores the fascinating story of an American president who rose from a turbulent childhood in Arkansas to become one of the most successful politicians in modern American history and one of the most complex and conflicted characters ever to stride across the public stage.

Discover New Music and More

Co-hosted by KQED’s Cy Musiker and the San Francisco Chronicle’s David Wiegand, The Do List previews a diverse array of local entertainment events, from concerts by local bands to art shows and plays. Cy recently answered a few questions about the program.

The Do List airs at 8:33am Fridays on KQED 88.5 FM and at kqed.org/listen. You can also find it at kqed.org/thedolist.

How did The Do List get started? The Do List is a revival of sorts. David Wiegand started the segment back in 1996 or so with KQED’s David Wright, at the time our morning news anchor. We didn’t have a name for it back then, but it was clear David Wiegand was wonderfully funny and informative talking about the local arts and music scene. In early 2008, an editor at the Chronicle began talking to Jo Anne Wallace, KQED’s vice president and public radio general manager, about a new arts roundup. Jo Anne asked me to co-host. We debuted The Do List (David came up with the name) on April 18, 2008. How do you decide what to preview? David, our producer Suzie Racho and I typically start with a very long list of possible subjects. In making our selections, we try to find interesting events all around the Bay Area and to mix music, theater and the visual arts. We often avoid shows by the most famous artists—they don’t need the publicity. More often we try to feature local bands, theater groups and other events that might get overlooked in the rush to the next big arena rock show. We also look for items that are just odd and quirky and fun to talk about. That first 2008 show featured Disney’s

High School Musical on stage, the farewell tour of the Beaux Arts Trio and jazz pianist Omar Sosa. So from the start we’ve tried to mix pop culture and the high arts. In 2012 we hope to have a more dynamic website with room to feature artists and events that don’t make our on-air Friday list. What are some of the most memorable events you’ve featured? Last fall we aired a wonderful Do List special on Forum featuring conductor Michael Tilson Thomas and soloist Yo Yo Ma talking about the San Francisco Symphony’s 100th anniversary season. We also interviewed Nobel Prize winner Toni Morrison about The Desdemona Project (at Cal Performances), featured music from the Oh Sees, Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All (yes, that’s a hip-hop group) and Booker T. and the MGs, and presented a discussion of a Rodin show at Stanford’s Cantor Art Museum. I’m pleased we were able to offer listeners such a diverse list. What does David Wiegand bring to The Do List? David brings a taste for all kinds of music— from cabaret to hip-hop to classical. And he’s a very funny man. At the Chronicle he writes profiles and reviews with equal aplomb (he’s now the Chronicle’s television critic too), and he brings that same wide-ranging approach to The Do List. Producer Suzie Racho is also an essential part of our team. She chooses all our music cues, and she knows about all the local (and touring) rock, hip-hop and pop bands. We have help as well from engineers Howard Gelman and Ceil Muller. What are you hoping listeners get out of The Do List? In any given week, we hope listeners will learn about at least one new performer or show. I think the role of critics and shows like ours is to open people’s eyes to the variety of cultural delights. The Bay Area is such a delightful place to live.

Angela Davis at the San Rafael County Prison, 1972.

KQED, in partnership with the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, ITVS and Top Ten Social, invites you to attend free screenings of two powerful new films: The Black Power Mixtape 1967–1975 and The Interrupters. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Swedish television journalists came to the United States to document the burgeoning black power movement. This long-lost trove of film, combined with contemporary interviews, creates an irresistible mosaic chronicling the movement’s evolution. Black Power Mixtape features interviews with seminal black power leaders, including Stokely Carmichael and Eldridge Cleaver, as well as author-activist Angela Davis. Using an innovative style that riffs on the popular 1970s mixtape format, this is a cinematic and musical journey into the black communities of America. During one weekend in Chicago in 2008, 37 people were shot, 7 of them fatally. Frontline follows a group of older

Radio The stories told on This American Life always make me think about how wacky life is. I love how Wait, Wait... Don’t Tell Me! uses humor to keep me informed on current events, and I appreciate the diversity of topics covered on Forum.

Podcasts WNYC’s Radio Lab has a way of making science sound amazingly intriguing and accessible. I listen to KQED’s Noise Pop for the latest on the music scene and to help me feel “in the know,” and I like KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic for its blend of instudio sessions with musician interviews. KQED.org I’m a fan of The Writers’ Block, because who doesn’t like to be read to? I love that San Francisco is such a hub of indie filmmakers, and the “Truly CA Shorts” podcast showcases their short docs.

Southern Wyoming Wednesday, February 8, 8pm and Saturday, February 11, 1pm Wyoming is the least populous state in the country. In this sparsely populated landscape where private property and self-sufficiency are prized, community is built on the (somewhat unwelcome) expectation that distant neighbors might need to rely on one another one day. When people come together here, they have to have good reason to. This episode will bring listeners to the towns of Laramie and Cheyenne and the surrounding landscape in southern Wyoming, looking at how the things that happen in the small towns and countryside of rural America can change the country as a whole.

Nature Ocean Giants Whales and dolphins, known as cetaceans, may seem to be totally alien to us—but with their mental ability, group communication and the recent discovery that dolphins have individual names, they are closer to us than we ever imagined. With two of the world’s top underwater cameramen— Doug Allan and Didier Noirot—filming breathtaking encounters, this new Nature program offers insights into the lives of whales and dolphins in three visually powerful, engaging and entertaining episodes (airing back-to-back this month).
