Livingston Taylor: Entertainer Extraordinaire

Jan 9, 2018

Anyone who has ever seen Livingston Taylor in concert can attest to the fact that he is thoroughly at home on any stage, from a classroom to a music club to a grand concert hall.  Celebrating his 51st year as a professional entertainer, Taylor is a master of crafting sweet melodic songs and delivering them in a honey-tinged voice. His warm and exuberant personality shines through from the first number.

A top-secret multi-billion dollar U.S. spy satellite launched from Cape Canaveral on Sunday reportedly failed to separate from the upper stage of its SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and never reached orbit.

Georges Bizet didn't live long enough to capitalize on his breakthrough operatic success, Carmen, nor did he leave a large legacy of other works. He did write one symphony as a conservatory student, studying under Charles Gounod, no less. It wasn't written with performance or publication in mind, and it got lost in a pile somewhere for decades, only to resurface for a premiere performance some  eighty years later. We'll hear the Symphony in C major as our featured work this Thursday.

SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket successfully launched a top secret U.S. government payload into orbit, while returning its first-stage booster to the ground for reuse.

The Falcon lifted off at 8 p.m. ET Sunday from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. As the first-stage of the Falcon returned to Earth for an upright landing, the upper stage lofted the mysterious Zuma, presumed to be a spy satellite or military communications satellite, into an undisclosed orbit.

SpaceX

The giant SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket has been lifted to the vertical position at Kennedy Space Center.  SpaceX CEO Elon Musk says that the demonstration flight of the world’s most powerful operational launch vehicle will occur before the end of January.  But before then there will be a test firing of the rocket's 27 engines.   The first Falcon Heavy mission will attempt to launch a Tesla electric car into deep space.

NPR's Noel King and David Greene look back on a year of great music releases with writers who cover the various genres.

Lee Ann Womack, The Lonely, the Lonesome & the Gone

"Lee Ann Womack is sort of a modern traditionalist; she was a mainstream hitmaker in the late 90's, and she's in a different phase of her career now. With this particular album, she kind of is trying to get to what she feels like is the emotional core of country music: it's melancholy." - Jewly Hight

Science can just knock me to the floor.

Sometimes it's the revelation of some previously unseen phenomena. Other times, it's a new way to see something you thought you already understood. Then there are the times when connections pop up between things you never imagined to be connected.

And sometimes, it's all of them at once.
