Royal Wedding – The Man Behind The Music

Royal Wedding – The Man Behind The Music  
Christopher Warren GreenThe Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton will take place at Westminster Abbey this Friday.The buzz is reaching a fever pitch the world over as the extravaganza approaches. Newspapers, magazines, TV talk shows, websites… it’s everywhere. Even people living under rocks have heard about this one. And while nearly every aspect of the event—from the dresses to the flowers to the guest list—has been analyzed in painstaking detail, one thing we still haven’t heard a lot about is the music. The man behind it all is London Chamber Orchestra music director Christopher Warren-Green. He’s been extremely tight-lipped about the details but Cathy Fuller, who is heard weekday morning over on our sister station 99.5 All-Classical, recently spoke with him and was able to get him to offer a little insight.

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

Guests:
  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
  Thomas Frank, journalist and author of books like What’s The Matter With Kansas? and most recently, Pity The Billionaire. Founding editor of The Baffler
