Spring Is in the Air!

The Boston area is experiencing its first week of real amicable weather: blue skies, the sun's gentle rays, and the glistening Charles River moseying toward Boston. It's the perfect time to have a picnic, take an easy stroll, and play some Ultimate. Who'd want to be stuck inside this time of the year? Well, somebody has to broadcast your favorite news magazine, and we at WHRB News are ready and willing to make that sacrifice. It's all for you, listeners! But if you decided to get some fresh air sans portable radio, you're in luck. You can listen to today's episode in its entirety here: FATY 4.20.08.

Special thanks to our host John Selig.

This week:
  • In Her Father's Shoes - An audio postcard of Aeronwy Thomas reciting her father Dylan Thomas' poem "In My Craft or Sullen Art" at a recent event on campus. You can also hear her husband Trevor Ellis singing in Welsh and English.
  • Passover - Reporter Leah Schwartz set out to dispel some myths about the major Jewish holiday which started this week, Passover.
  • Bad Religion - Reporter Christine An interviews Harvard Humanist Chaplain Greg Epstein about this year's recipient of the Outstanding Lifetime Achievement Award in Cultural Humanism, Bad Religion's Greg Graffin. To find out more about the ceremony which takes place next Saturday, please visit the Humanist Chaplaincy at Harvard's website. For the full interview, see the 'Extra' section.
  • Week in Review - A compilation of top news stories in the week leading up to April 20, from reporter Alyce de Carteret.
  • Bad Religion: Complete - The complete interview with Harvard Humanist Chaplain Greg Epstein [coming soon].
Our last show for the school year is next Sunday! If you have any comments, questions, or suggestions this may be the last chance to have your voice heard. Please e-mail us at news[at]whrb[dot]org with what's on your mind, and you may hear it addressed on next week's show.

Enjoy the upcoming week's warm weather, and we hope you'll join us next week From Across the Yard!
