When hundreds of recordings of Louis Armstrong’s private conversations recently became available at Queens College in New York, critic Terry Teachout was the first biographer to access them.  The result is “Pops: A Life of Louis Armstrong,” an in-depth biography of the jazz great that’s full of new details about Armstrong’s personal and professional life.

 

Join us to hear highlights and musical examples of Armstrong’s groundbreaking style in this entertaining conversation between Teachout- drama critic of The Wall Street Journal- and our music-connoisseur host, Mike Cuthbert.  

 

Then … Dr. Susan Love and psychologist Ali Domar spend their professional lives investigating and improving women’s health. Now they have teamed up to write “Live a Little! Breaking the Rules Won’t Break Your Health.” In this educational half-hour with our willing – and male – pupil, host Mike Cuthbert, they encourage us to stress out less about the health rules and to “not get carried away with trying to live forever.”
