They talked about the book and the effect that Star Wars has had on pop culture, The Force Awakens! Listen to the podcast below and let us know what you think!

Onstage and Backstage 

About the Book
From the books and movies that inspired George Lucas to imagine the Star Wars universe, to early screenplay drafts that were never filmed, to short biographies of many people who made key contributions to the movies' success, Star Wars FAQ explores every aspect of the original Star Wars trilogy (Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi). Along the way, it unearths underreported stories and illuminating minutiae often skimmed over or completely ignored in other histories of the legendary film series. Highlights include details about the Star Wars Holiday Special debacle, the Ewok TV movies, the rise of Star Wars fiction and its importance in the revival of the franchise, and the wave of Star Wars imitators and parodies that flooded theaters and TV screens in the late 1970s and early 1980s – along with dozens of rare publicity stills and photographs of vintage memorabilia.

Susan Brumfield, one of the authors of Jean Ritchie's Kentucky Mother Goose, spoke with Michael Stock host of Folk & Acoustic Music on 91.3 WLRN. She spoke about her book, the passing of Jean Ritchie, and teaching children authentic children songs. Click below to hear more!

Onstage and Backstage 

About the Book
Jean Ritchie's Kentucky Mother Goose is a collection of songs, rhymes and stories recalled by Jean from her own childhood. The youngest of 14 children in a singing family from Viper, Kentucky, she grew up surrounded by the ballads, hymns, play-party songs, singing games and dulcimer tunes that comprised the Ritchie Family repertoire. Her 1955 book, Singing Family of the Cumberlands, portrays the rich musical life of the Ritchies: Jean's mother, Abigail; her father, Balis, who taught her the dulcimer; “Uncle Jason” a prolific collector of “big ballads” and songs; and her older siblings. Now in her 90s, Jean has returned to the earliest recollections of her songs, and the stories that surround them.

Susan Brumfield is the author of Hot Peas and Barley-O: Children's Songs and Games from Scotland and Over the Garden Wall: Children's Songs and Games from England, as well as First, We Sing! Kodaly-Inspired Teaching for the Music Classroom. She teaches music education at Texas Tech University and lives in Lubbock, Texas.

Folk & Acoustic Music is hosted by Michael Stock and the focus of Folk & Acoustic Music is to create a community to support folk music. Throughout history, folk music has traveled in small circles, passed primarily by singing families who did not know how to write them down. Even today, folk music is obscure and hard to find. Through folk music, our history and culture is revealed in songs and stories. Every Sunday afternoon for 3 hours, WLRN airs the only folk music show in South Florida, which includes interviews and performances with local and national touring artists, and plays music from a collection of over 8000 CDs.

Dave Thompson, author of Twilight Zone FAQ: All That's Left to Know About the Fifth Dimension and Beyond, spoke with Simon Applebaum host of Tomorrow Will Be Televised. They talked about the book and some of the Twilight Zone's well-known episodes! Listen to the podcast below and let us know what you think!

Onstage and Backstage 

About the Book
The Twilight Zone FAQ takes the reader back to that halcyon era, looking back on the show and its impact as a force for societal change, via reflections on the manifold topics and controversies that the show took on – from the space race to the Red Menace, from paranoia to madness and beyond. Dave Thompson traces the history of the show – from its earliest flowering in the mind of then-unknown Rod Serling through its slow birth, shaky beginning, and breathless five-season run – and he shows how it became the blueprint for so much of the fantasy television that has followed.

Onstage and Backstage 

About the Book
Jeru's Journey – The Life & Music of Gerry Mulligan vividly recounts all the major milestones and complications in Mulligan's extraordinary life and career, ranging from his early days of arranging for big bands in the 1940s to his chance 1974 meeting with Countess Franca Rota, who would have a major impact on the last two decades of his life. In between were his battles with drugs; his significant contributions to the historic 1949 Birth of the Cool recording; the introduction of an enormously popular piano-less quartet in the early 1950s; the creation of his innovative concert jazz band in the early '60s; his collaboration – personal and professional – with actress Judy Holliday; his breakthrough into classical music; and his love of and respect for the American Songbook.
