Moments

A Radiolab film that is three and a half minutes and start-to-finish amazing.  Rather ineffably so.

PS: Filmmaker Will Hoffman explains how Radiolab’s After Life episode inspired this video in an interview with Robert Krulwich.

A solo artist starts a band… we’ve heard that story before. A formerly solo artist starts a band with her father and husband… now that’s interesting. Folk singer Alela Diane and her band Wild Divine share the sounds of the Pacific Northwest live in our studio.

Listen to Soundcheck Monday afternoon and then come see Alela Diane play  here Monday night!

Today on WNYC:
Oscar coverage, including this week on Fishko Files: costume designer Edith Head.
Public workers  and their unions massed in front of City Hall on Thursday.
NYC’s Respect for All anti-bullying campaign isn’t comprehensive enough, some say.
Prince Rama performs tonight at the Bowery Ballroom. Free download of the epically entitled “Land Of The Apocalypse Transcended.”
From the Archives: Hom (a.k.a. Henry) Hong Wei joined WNYC’s engineering staff in 1939 to help with our  coverage of the New York World’s Fair. He is one of the earliest, if  not the first, Asian-Americans to earn an FCC First Class Radiotelephone  Operators license. He became WNYC’s Chief  Engineering Supervisor and retired after 42 years in 1981. Hom passed away last Sunday. He will be missed. (Thanks to Hom and Damon Wei for this photo.)

Empire State Building, New YorkPhoto: Joe McNally
In the city that never sleeps a new awareness about energy means the  Empire State Building now uses bright lights at night only to celebrate  holidays and special events. And power-hungry Manhattan has generating  potential of its own: A tidal-energy project under development in the  swift-flowing East River could power a thousand homes.

Over at WNYC, we are in an Empire State of mind.
