Ccyale_240_graybg_small Climate Connections is a 90-second daily (M-F) module that's produced in partnership with the Yale Center for Environmental Communication and hosted by Dr. Tony Leiserowitz. It covers the ways climate change is impacting our lives, and what diverse people and organizations are doing to reduce the associated risks. From energy to public health, from extreme weather to the economy, we’ll connect the dots and bring climate change “down to earth” for your listeners. This 4-week round includes the following pieces:

From The WFMT Radio Network | Part of the Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin series | 58:58

Exploring_music_logo_small Darkness descends on Exploring Music as Malcolm Arnold leads a pair of drunken bassoonists through a dark foggy peat bog, Henry Cowell conjures a banshee from the piano, and Paganini’s violin flirts with the devil. Bill lines up the composers who delight in the supernatural – but it’s not all about Halloween in America: there’s Walpurgisnacht (throughout Europe), and St. John’s Eve (international). EM conjures the ghosts, the goblins, Mephistopheles, and other phantasmagoria depicted by Brahms, Berlioz, Verdi, Busoni, and Offenbach.
