Bob Edwards Weekend (September 12-13, 2015)

 

HOUR ONE:

Bob talks with investigative journalists Jim Dwyer and Kevin Flynn about their book titled 102 Minutes: The Untold Story of the Fight to Survive Inside the Twin Towers.  Their gripping work was the first minute-by-minute history of 9/11 told from the perspective of the people trapped inside the World Trade Center - 14 years ago. Then, for his documentary Objects and Memory sculptor and filmmaker Jonathan Fein visited Ground Zero in New York, the site of the Oklahoma City bombing and the Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial to explore the power and poignancy of objects retrieved from and left at those sites.

 

HOUR TWO:

As we near the end of the show, we’re featuring some of best-loved productions and some real fan favorites. Today, we bring back Bob’s time in the studio with Carol Kaye and her bass guitar. Kaye was the session bassist of the 1960s and 70s, playing on dozens and dozens of hits for the likes of The Beach Boys, Ritchie Valens, Simon & Garfunkel, The Supremes, Ray Charles and the Monkees. It’s estimated that Kaye has been involved with more than ten-thousand recording sessions in her career. Kaye and her bass are also responsible for the distinctive bass notes of the Mission Impossible theme.  Bob thoroughly enjoyed this conversation and we think you will too.
