BOB DYLAN: SHADOWS IN THE NIGHT
 

The 36th album from the iconic singer/songwriter, and his first new music since 2012's worldwide hit TEMPEST.

WordTemple host Katherine Hastings leaves poetry behind for one program to air a riveting portion of a panel discussion on sit-ins attended by James Baldwin, Malxolm X and LaVerne Cummings on April 25, 1961.  After Malcolm X states his objections to sit- ins, saying there is nothing honorable about the word “sit,” Baldwin insists on redefining “manhood” and moving away from the concept of men as “warriors.”  “Football players,” he says, “are not men.”  Although some ideas and terms are outdated, much of this discussion remains relevant today.

  We are launching a new program on Sunday evening: America's Test Kitchen Radio. This week, we investigate the truth about fad diets, from blood types to Paleo. We'll be tasting white chocolate, and we'll discuss the age old rivalry of wine vs. beer with expert Stephen Meuse. Then we'll head into the test kitchen to learn how to make the ultimate chocolate cupcakes with ganache filling. And of course, we'll be taking your calls to answer all of your cooking questions.
