PLAYLIST FOR “SUMMER LISTENING ASSIGNMENTS” THE SEASON FINALE (6.30.18

30 Jun

I’ll be off the air for July and August, pre-empted by live concerts from Tanglewood. So, once again, as a goodbye treat, I offered listeners music to listen to during the summer which we can discuss when I return in September (I expect complete essays with full bibliographies). I’m sure America will be great again by the time I get back. In truth I just hope we survive to see the Fall.
