Louisiana: Ingredients For Musical Melting Pot

Transcript

JACKI LYDEN, HOST:

For many years here at NPR, Gwen Thompkins was an editor and then went to East Africa as a correspondent. She's always had a great ear, so perhaps it's not surprising that her brand-new music radio show called "Music Inside Out with Gwen Thompkins" listens to music in a revealing way. The show is from Gwen's hometown, New Orleans, and every week she talks to people in Louisiana who have devoted their lives to music - songwriters, musicians, producers, you name it.

Gwen Thompkins joins us now from WWNO in New Orleans. Congratulations.

WWNO prepares audience for schedule change; shifts daytime classical music to digital channel

Lead in text: 
Starting Monday, July 23, New Orleans NPR outlet WWNO FM-89.9 will be shifting morning and afternoon classical blocks to HD channels, and airing more local and national news-and-information programming.
The news is good and bad for local lovers of classical music. The good is that there are more ways to hear their favorite (or maybe even unfamiliar) composers, orchestras, quartets, singers, soloists, etc., than at any time in history.
