In this April 21, 1987 show, John visited pianist Keith Jarrett - not in the usual confines of the WNYC studios, but on Jarrett's front porch near the Delaware River in New Jersey. Jarrett discusses his 1986 two-disc set "Spirits," in which he plays flutes, recorder, saxophone, tabla, guitar and yes, even the piano. We also hear some selections from his ECM release, Invocation/The Moth and the Flame.

Could you tell me how to access the sound of many of your archived programs.
On some there is sound available and others there is no way of playing the program.
I am a committed listener and am desperate to listen to all back issues.
Please assist.
Program 56 is one example.
Otherwise thank you for this great program.
Can one buy all back issues perhaps?
