In This Episode: we learn about the concept behind “narrative medicine” with Columbia University’s Dr. Rita Charon and musician Fred Hersch.

Plus: the death of classical pianist, Van Cliburn, made the front-page of The New York Times this week.  We’ll dip into the New York Public Radio archives for a rare recording that might help explain why.  

And: The funk/street beat improv brass band The Revolutionary Snake Ensemble takes our studio by storm.
