Holiday Spirit: Music
Thursday, December 5, 2013
Nothing signals the advent of the holiday season earlier than the slow increase in frequency of those Christmas and winter songs on the radio. This week's panel discusses the influence and impact of music at this time of the year, when celebration of religious holidays creeps into secular media and elbows pop music aside in favor of tunes about angel choirs and little drummer boys. Dr. Shepherd's guests include composer-performers Richard Mekdeci, Megan McDonough, Sue K. Riley, and Glen Roethel. Listen to samples of their work and explore the power of music with these gifted new artists.
