Since we're in the musical spirit around here, I just put up a new 'illustrated' version of our August '08 Carnegie Hall podcast in our archive feed. You can get it by clicking the iTunes link below or going directly to our feed page. Our archive shows are enhanced with photographs and illustrations that pop up on your listening device.
How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Well, we can at least show you the way through its tumultuous history, from a fortunate meeting on a Norwegian cruise ship, passed a symphonic rivalry, and into the 20th Century with some of the biggest names in classical and popular music. Includes a brief history of the New York Philharmonic.
