Thurs. 2/24 at Noon: Today we're going to feature the music of and talk to Bill Smith, one of the greatest jazz clarinetists to ever wet a reed. As well, one of the least acknowledged for his mastery.

In my choosy pantheon of clarinet greats he easily sits along side Artie Shaw, Johnny Dodds, Pee Wee Russell, Kenny Davern, Bill Payne, John Carter, Gary Foster, Lester Young, Hal McKusick, Jimmy Noone, Frankie Teschmacher, Buddy Collette and Beth Custer. These artists can spell chalumeau backwards, forwards and inside out. I spell it: Liquid.

State Senate gets testy (again) over new greenhouse gas regs

Santa Fe, NM – Some state lawmakers are still trying to find a way to overturn greenhouse gas cap regulations put in place by the Environmental Improvement Board, or EIB, last year. The debate came to the Senate floor Wednesday after a bill to repeal most of those regulations was introduced in that chamber.

Stedall says, "I can't remember how I answered it, but I certainly remembered his formulation and what lies behind that question interested me for very much longer." As a filmmaker, Stedall has worked with people from all walks of life including scientists, artists and poets. He has found it quite exciting to come at that question from many different angles and perspectives.
