Not a fan but I do like NPR (even though I don't go along with the political views they generally have). Thanks for bringing it up. I'll have to check it out.

Gosh, and I thought I was the only one. I used to listen to "Le Show" way back in the early 90s. Then, the local (conservative) university station that aired it apparently wised up to his politics and dropped him. Of course, thanks to Harry's much scorned digital wonderland I was able to re-join the show in the 00s. Oddly enough, however much I respect his music selections I always fast-forward through them, preferring just to listen to HS himself. Like you, I'd love to have a look at his collection as well as at his listening setup. My favorite voice in his repertory is Al Gore. Al to Joe Lieberman (also HS) on the phone: "Joe, if there's anything you ever need, well, I just hope you get it."
I agree NPR is too right wing, but Le Show gets more to the center. Harry has done some film work which you can search. He has a nice taste in music, narrow but worthwhile.
Music cuts across all barriers, from the Nazi through the Soviet to Woodstock and Newport. I do not know if music can make a common ground. But no nasty force can kill it.
As Twain said, "We are all cracked in the head, and sorely in need of mending."
Peace to all of you fine folk and hopes for a fine Labor Day!
