Episode 3

The Books are Paul de Jong and Nick Zammuto. This act debuted their unique sampling style with their 2002 debut album, Thought for Food. Since then, they've branched out. The Books stop in studio to talk about composing elevator music, about collecting old sounds, and what they do with them.

Hands On

Hands On

History Radio

Episode 2

People see history firsthand, at the Natural History Museum, the antiquarian book fair circuit. Music critic, Amanda Petrusich talks about going on the road to write It Still Moves. Whitman impersonator Darrel Blaine Ford tells about the transformative effect of being on the scene of history--70 years ago. And we return to the City Reliquary to talk about objects: collecting them, holding them, sharing them.
