WYNC’s Soundcheck, November 13, 14 and 15, 2012

Soundcheck host John Schaefer broadcast a wonderful three-part program on the music, history, and legacy of Free to Be…You and Me. Along with Carole Hart, who produced the original Free to Be album and television special, I was interviewed for the first segment. Later segments featured songwriter Carol Hall, psychologist Diane Ehrensaft, composer Stephen Lawrence, cultural critic Faith Salie, and the legendary Rosie Grier (whose singular performance of “It’s All Right to Cry” has made it a classic.)

After the show aired, Soundcheck producer Katie Bishop wrote a thoughtful blog post with reflections after hearing Free to Be as an adult for the very first time.
