a crack in your ear through which sound surreptitiously slips, or an illicit substance which gives your ears immense pleasure while enslaving them to a crippling addiction

I'm going to make a confession, and this is not going to be pretty, folks. I went through a phase in college when I was a real snob about music. Basically, I thought anything that was really accessible was too easy to write, and therefore bad. I was wrong. And I'm so relieved that I was wrong, because I was missing out on some pretty amazing music.

John Corigliano is a composer who I missed out on during that time. Now I realize how great he really is. He's even won a Pulitzer Prize and an Oscar, which ought to count for something. About a year ago, I met with him to talk about one of his major influences (and a composer who I always loved, even when I was in college): Aaron Copeland. The piece I produced from the interview is airing on Studio 360 this weekend.

Also this week, our third ever Fair Game episode aired.

This being a new show, I'd be really interested in any feedback you have...
