Radio Pick: The Soundtrack to War and Peace

TORONTO, ONTARIO - The CBC's streak was broken this week, as Wisconsin Public Radio earned my radio pick of the week. While it has certainly taken on political connotations in the last century, I had no idea about the contemporary politics that shaped Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. Harvey Sachs provided insightful background on that toward the end of a 53-minute show that once again showed that the team at Wisconsin Public Radio may be the best interviewers in the world.
