Maybe there’s a way to will Spring in after this brutal winter.
Sound Beat’s March programming starts off with a brutal pilgrimage, and controversial race, to the North Pole. We see signs of life throughout the month with the legend of the shamrock for St. Paddy’s Day, the story of Johnny Appleseed, and, of course, Stravinky’s Rite of Spring, and the near-riot it started upon its debut.
And of course we’ve got music…Blind Willie Johnson, Buddy Holly and Mado Robin to name a few. Not to mention some Jelly Roll Morton, just in time for Mardi Gras.
Get on the Beat!

The full 2013/14 Action Speaks! series of one-hour specials is now available. Action Speaks! examines underappreciated dates in 20th Century US history.
This year’s theme is Utopia/Dystopia, dates where America’s greatest hopes and despair have been represented in our country’s collective imagination and construction – where traditional and idiosyncratic ideas for the transcendent meet the amplification of ‘everyday horrific’ in a battle for reality.
The 2013 Specials are:
- BETTING ON HEDONISM (1941)- Las Vegas ‘Strip’ is born when El Rancho Vegas opens
- PARADISE FOUND (AND LOST?) (1957)-Frommer’s ‘Europe on $5 A Day’ is published
- HEAVEN FOR ALL (1906) – The Seymour’s Azusa Street Revival and the birth of Pentecostalism
- STRETCHING TO BLISS (1924) – The birth of Yoga in America and The Great Oom’s Nyack, NY Retreat
