Special

Tune in Monday, Memorial Day, at 6:00 pm.

From the trenches of The Great War, Alan Seeger's poems, letters and diaries spring to life in the voices of Cathedral Choir of St. John the Divine. Recorded just before lockdown in the Cathedral, Patrick Zimmerli's new oratorio "Alan Seeger: Instrument of Destiny" fuses Seeger's formal writing with monkish chants and 20th Century music. Scott Simon hosts this moving hour of tribute to all those who saw combat, and those who awaited them at home

KVNF will air a special episode of the NPR podcast Code Switch, "A Decade Of Watching Black People Die," Friday at 6:00 pm.
