Tonight's show is a remembrance of Ravi Shankar, who died yesterday at the age of 92.  Listen to excerpts from his in-studio appearances and live performances, from his first appearance in our New Sounds studios in the 1980's to when he brought his then 15-year old daughter, Anoushka Shankar in 1996.  Along the way, Ravi explains his instrument, mentions his association with George Harrison and the hippies, and celebrates every audience as a way of keeping his music new.  Also, hear a classic Deutsche Grammophon recording of Raga Gara, and more.
