Dr. Seuss's Sleep Book read by Marvin Miller
First published in 1962, Dr. Seuss's Sleep Book tells the story of a small yet contagious yawn which spreads spreads from bedroom to bedroom across the world until zillions of Seussian creatures (such as the Foona Lagoona Baboona, the Chippendale Mupp, and the Krandles) are all soundly fast asleep. Our recording was released on Camden Records in 1966. It is "dramatized" by Marvin Miller with Marty Gold and His Orchestra. If his voice sounds familiar, it's because Miller is famous for narrating another Seuss tale, Gerald McBoing-Boing, and Disney's Sleeping Beauty. He has also lent his vocal talents to the characters Robby the Robot, Aquaman, Zarn, Deux Deux, and appeared on many shows including the Millionaire, Wonder Woman, Perry Mason, and Space Patrol.
Dreaming of Sleep by Todd Melby
Roughnecks and other oil field workers make big money. But that money doesn't come without sacrifice. Many workers are separated from their families. The job can be dangerous. And the long hours can mess up a person's life. Todd Melby of the Black Gold Boom oil series reports on one worker whose days sometimes turn into weeks.
Going to Sleep by Milton Feher
Finally, let your mind dissolve in the pitch black space within your head. To help, we're going to hear a deep cut from Feher's classic Relaxation Record; released on Folkways Records in 1962. You can download the "lyrics" and liner notes here after you "Sleep like a baby... Sleep... Sleep..."
Two diverse faiths: Minnesota's Mindekirken and Tibetan Buddhism
Produced by Jessica Folker
Religion and language shape culture, so for immigrants coming to the United States, foreign tongues and unfamiliar worship services can be daunting. This audio documentary explores two religious communities in Minneapolis: the Norwegian Lutheran Memorial Church, or Mindekirken, and Tibetan Buddhists at the Gyuto Wheel of Dharma Monastery. Mindekirken is one of only two churches in the United States where Norwegian is the main language of worship. Founded 90 years ago in the Phillips neighborhood, the church has reinvented itself multiple times as the number of Norwegian immigrants to the Twin Cities has slowed to a trickle. But still the church draws worshipers—close to one hundred—many second, third and fourth generation Norwegian-Americans. Across town, young Tibetans at the Gyuto Wheel of Dharma Monastery and the Tibetan Community Center talk about keeping religious traditions alive while living in exile. Tibetans began arriving in the Minnesota in the 1990s, and today the Twin Cities has the second largest Tibetan population in the United States. Young adults explain what Buddhism means to them, how it’s different than their parents’ religion, and what the future holds for the next generation being raised as Tibetan, Buddhist and Minnesotan.
