Maplewood Barn Radio Theatre: Stephen Leacock's 'Golden Dreams' - KBIA

Welcome to another edition of Maplewood Barn Radio Theatre.
 In our continuing efforts to bring you nothing but the best in classic stories, we offer you an audio dramatization of an award winning story, "Golden Dreams," based on the writings of Stephen Leacock. Mr. Leacock is a bit vague about what award it might have won, but perhaps we can learn more from our protagonist, the professor. Let's turn it over to him, so he can tell you all about the book "Golden Dreams."

Jazz Series keeps things vital with new home, season | Columbia Daily Tribune

Jazz Series keeps things vital with new home, season | Columbia Daily Tribune | OffStage | Scoop.it

Jazz never sleeps.

That phrase is more than just a picture, painted with words, of mad-hatted saxophonists blowing their horns until daybreak or drummers beating city streets to get from one late-night spot to the next. It's also become the mantra of the "We Always Swing" Jazz Series. Just a week from opening its 19th season, the Jazz Series knows that, to stay true to the spirit of the music it loves, it too has to remain a living, breathing, scrapping, shuffling, ever-changing organism.

Russian-American Pianist Eldar Djangirov at Murry's this Sunday - KBIA | OffStage | Scoop.it

I marvel at those players who hit the stage with the chops and confidence to offer up rock, jazz or classical standards for their audience. Pianist Eldar Djangirov is one such musician who has attained an uncommon level of virtuosity in two genres: jazz and classical.

With the passage of time, some things change, and some stay the same — it's a clichéd observation, which of course means it's also universally true. And so it goes with the Citizen Jane Film Festival, which turns 6 this year.
