Savannah Music Festival

Savannah Music Festival: Freddy Cole live

Freddy Cole

Airs Thursday, October 31 at 8 p.m. While there are certain unmistakeable similarities in the musicianship of the two siblings, the younger brother of Nat King Cole long ago emerged from the awesome shadow cast by his elder brother. In truth, his phrasing is far closer to that of Frank Sinatra or Billie Holiday than that of his brother, and his timing swings a little more. In 2012, the Savannah Music Festival presented Freddy Cole on a double bill alongside the Marcus Roberts Trio in a program entitled "Cole in the Afternoon." This episode features Freddy Cole's half of that special matinee concert.

The Long Game

The Long Game: Texas’ Ongoing Battle for the Direction of the Classroom

The Long Game

Airs Sunday, October 27 at 6 p.m. From KUT, Austin Public Radio, the world premiere of a new radio documentary, The Long Game: Texas’ Ongoing Battle for the Direction of the Classroom. Produced by Peabody award winner Trey Kay, Long Game delves into the culture war battles over public school curriculum content, which have ebbed and flowed in the Lone Star State for the past fifty years.

For more than a half a century, citizens of the Lone Star State have had intense, emotional battles over what children should and should not be taught in public school classrooms. While there have been fights over just about every academic subject, debates over history, evolution, God and country generate the most heat. Listen again here.
