Monday, November 10, 2014: Noted conductor Leonard Slatkin will speak about the world of classical music and his career in it. Slatkin’s discography includes more than 100 recordings, over half of which have been nominated for Grammy Awards. He is a seven-time winner. Currently, he is the Music Director for the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.


Tuesday, November 11, 2014:  For this Veteran’s Day, we re-visit our award winning documentary from 2008. Stories from Third Med: Surviving a Jungle ER shares the memories and stories of the Navy’s Third Medical Battalion, which served alongside the Third Marine Division during the Vietnam War. Decades later, the doctors and medics recount the horror and humor they can never forget, and reflect on the forces that drive men to war in the first place.


Wednesday, November 12, 2014: On June 17, 1965, the first B-52 raids were launched against Viet Cong targets in South Vietnam.  Months later, Porter Halyburton was a Navy jet pilot shot down and taken prisoner of war.  He was presumed dead, his wife was notified, and his family conducted a memorial service.  Meanwhile, he was held captive in the Hanoi Hilton and other North Vietnamese prisons for seven and a half years before his release.  Halyburton speaks with Bob and describes how he survived that torture. Then, another veteran. Max Cleland came back from Vietnam missing three limbs and confined to a wheelchair. He thought his life was over until he started a career in public service. President Jimmy Carter appointed Cleland head of the Veterans Administration and, years later, he was elected to the United States Senate. After losing a particularly dirty re-election campaign, Cleland sank into a deep depression. The former Senator wrote about his struggles in the book titled Heart of a Patriot: How I Found the Courage to Survive Vietnam, Walter Reed and Karl Rove.


Thursday, November 13, 2014: Dick Smothers is half of the 1960’s comedy duo The Smothers Brothers.  He stopped by our studios to talk with Bob about comedy, country, and controversy.


Friday, November 14, 2014: Time magazine chief science writer and author Jeffrey Kluger takes a hard look at the destructive people in our lives in his new book The Narcissist Next Door: Understanding the Monster in Your Family, In Your Office, In Your Bed—In Your World. The world’s oldest stories, Homer’s epic poems The Iliad and The Odyssey are often forgotten after we leave school, but in his new book, Why Homer Matters, writer Adam Nicolson reminds us why these 4,000 year old poems still have plenty of life in them.
