What do musicians think about when they're composing? Or better yet: What do musicians think when they walk inside a Cabela's store and hear bird calls? That's the topic David Schulman explores in "Musicians In Their Own Words," a series of profiles on cellists, punkers, blues legends and all kinds of musicians.

Fresh Fruit: 35 Years of Queer Radio, an audio documentary by Dixie Treichel
Fresh Fruit: 35 Years of Queer Radio is about the history of Fresh Fruit, that first aired on KFAI on May 11, 1978 and has been live on air weekly with the same name and format for 35 years. The piece is an overview of Fresh Fruit from 1978-2013 including preparations to go on air in 1977 by the original Fresh Fruit collective, a group of activists living in a queer hippy commune in Minneapolis.
