March 16th & 17th, 2012, on The Signal…
Was Thelonius Monk crazy, or did he just want us to think so? The new biographical play, “Sphere: The Thelonius Monk Story,” puts the jazz legend in conversation with a young psychiatrist, and together they try to make sense of his unconventional genius. We’ll visit with playwright Max Garner, director Rosalind Cauthen, and actor David Mitchell, who bring the story to life on stage.
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we enjoy music and conversation with traditional Irish musicians Dan Isaacson, Mathew Olwell, and Kelly Smits.
We sample some rare vinyl from the other side of the world: International record hunter Sam Hopkins is just back from India, and he joins us to spin some of his latest finds.
Plus: Remember Brood X? Elisabeth Dahl does. The perennial hordes of cicadas have inspired her latest work of fiction, and she joins us for a reading.
