INSIDE WSKG | APRIL 2013

We've beaten winter, but the feud is still on - the WSKG Radio Frequency Feud, that is!

Highlights: WSKG Radio Frequency Feud, The Central Park Five, LA Philharmonic featuring Cornell University's Steven Stucky, Kind Hearted Woman, a special event with Curious George and a month of food

  

The Central Park Five, a new film from award-winning filmmaker Ken Burns, tells the story of the five black and Latino teenagers from Harlem who were wrongly convicted of raping a white woman in New York City’s Central Park in 1989. The film chronicles The Central Park Jogger case, for the first time from the perspective of the five teenagers whose lives were upended by this miscarriage of justice. The Central Park Five premieres April 16th at 9:00pm on WSKG TV.

Listen to WSKG Radio from April 19th to April 24th for our Frequency Feud Fundraiser! The entire WSKG Radio team will host a party for the WSKG transmitter community that contributes the most significantly during the drive. Monitor our progress, see how your community is doing and donate at WSKG.org. Would you like to volunteer to answer phones? Please contact Greg at gkeeler@wskg.org.

On April 1st at 9:00pm, By Special Invitation features a concert by the LA Philharmonic, led by Gustavo Dudamel. In addition to Ravel's Pavane and Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, the broadcast features the world premiere performance of Cornell University professor Steven Stucky's Symphony. Tune in to WSKG Radio for this special musical event!

In a special two-part series, acclaimed filmmaker David Sutherland (The Farmer’s Wife, Country Boys) creates an unforgettable portrait of Robin Charboneau, a 32-year-old divorced single mother and Oglala Sioux woman living on North Dakota’s Spirit Lake Reservation.

How much do you know about baseball? The Yankees spooked the Pirates to a loss in the 1927 World Series? Tinker to Evers to Chance were the greatest of all double-play trios? Abbott and Costello are in the Baseball Hall of Fame? Baseball is replete with legends, and Bill Deane of Cooperstown researched hundreds of them for his book Baseball Myths: Debating, Debunking and Disproving Tales from the Diamond. Hear this episode of Off the Page on April 2nd at 1:00pm (rebroadcast at 7:00pm) on WSKG Radio.
