New Orleans composer Tucker Fuller, singer Mary Townsend, lyricist Elizabeth Cumming, and president and violist of Musaica Chamber Ensemble Bruce Owen stopped by WTUL to talk about Musaica’s upcoming Voices of Freedom program. The concerts, which will showcase works by Richard Stöhr and William Grant Still, will also feature the world premiere of Reading Gaol, a new work by Tucker. These concerts are Tuesday, January 27 at Munholland Methodist Church and Wednesday, January 28 at First Unitarian Universalist Church of New Orleans. Both performances begin at 7:30 pm and are open to the public.

Here, Bruce talks about the composers spotlighted in “Voices of Freedom” and the mission of Musaica, now in its ninth season, to perform unheralded works and encourage new music composition. Tucker and Elizabeth discuss how they were inspired by Oscar Wilde’s Ballad of Reading Gaol and its examination of how incarceration affects the human spirit. Mary and Tucker also talk about their career working together.

This radio station is run by people whom sacrifice their own time to keep WTUL on air. I believe criticism is good, it doesn't have to be unkind. WTUL has given us years of enjoyment, the DJ's are cool, and more importantly, they play Echo & the Bunnymen when I kindly ask them to.

Thanx for the lousy Rock-on-Survival Marathon that was run last year. Not only did you absentmindedly retrieve my donation, You refused to answer on why I was not accommodated on the donor's swag. This is second radio marathon of yours that I gave to and was gipped. One year my donation was double billed, and the manager said that she could do nothing to reimburse me for the ineptness and incompetence @ your end.
