To The Best of Our Knowledge
Jim Fleming
TTBOOK is an audio magazine of ideas - two hours of smart, entertaining radio for people with curious minds. It's sort of journalistic, but it's never about the President's speech to the U.N., weapons inspections in Iraq, or yesterday's stock market disaster. It's the kind of show that would spend an hour on the future of capitalism, or on the roots of Islamic fundamentalism. It might also spend an hour on hair. Or salt. Or pirates, road trips, psychic phenomena, house cleaning, animal intelligence, high energy physics, or how to say you're sorry. It's the kind of show where someone might mention Charlotte Bronte or Anthony Trollope in one segment, U2 or They Might Be Giants in another.

Bluegrass Breakdown
Dave Higgs, hosts Bluegrass Breakdown on Nashville Public Radio for KAMU-FM. They've put together an emotionally-charged, heart-rending, paint-peeling, splinter-kicking one hour bluegrass show.

Thematically, they are all over the bluegrassical map, boldly covering such hot topics as broken things in Bluegrassland, gospel train songs, and "ain't" tunes. We also make frequent trips to the seldom seen new bluegrass CD bins, where the latest discs in bluegrassdom are examined. And, of course, being based in Nashville, we feature scintillating conversation and live music with some of the best in bluegrass. Recent guests have included The McLains, Lynn Morris & Marshall Wilborn, Crucial Smith, Tim O'Brien & Dirk Powell, and the Larry Stephenson Band.

Their goal is to edify, educate, and entertain — and we leave no instrument unpicked, no song unsung, and no interview undone in our continuing effort to so.

Swingin' Down the Lane
David Miller
On Swingin' Down The Lane they are dedicated to keeping the big band sound alive and well. Big bands have been around since the 1920's, and the recent interest in swing music has rekindled the flame. New generations are thrilling to Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Count Basie, Tommy Dorsey, Glenn Miller and of course the illustrious Duke Ellington.
David Miller has been an ardent fan of the big bands all his life. As a child growing up in New Jersey, he set his radio dial to WNEW, where "Make Believe Ballroom" featured a constant stream of recordings by big bands and their vocalists.
Swing music went into hibernation for a while, as vocalists like Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Rosemary Clooney and Perry Como stole the spotlight away. Determined to keep the old sound alive, I accumulated a collection of over 9,000 recordings. With such a rich resource at my fingertips, it was a natural next step to inaugurate a weekly radio program, which went on the air in 1983 and is now carried by over 40 National Public Radio stations.
