Thai Elephant Orchestra Interview on NPR All Things Considered

BBC and NPR decided both to interview me on the Thai Elephant Orchestra at about the same time... here's a link to my interview with Jacki Lyden on All Things Considered.

Interview with Butch Morris

Here's the first of a series of interviews from the early 1990s I produced for WKCR, this one with the late GREAT Butch Morris. The series was called "Playing Attention" and the interviewer on this one was Susan James. There are some wonderful insights by Butch on his work and music in general.

This is a long show, about an hour, so it may take a while for the player to show up on your screen.
(If anyone knows how to post long audio files that will download easily or play faster, tell me, there are more interviews I should post, and they are each about an hour.)
