Fresh Air Weekend: Louis C.K., Miles Davis And A Military Dog

Saturday, May 24, 2014

Fresh Air Weekend highlights some of the best interviews and reviews from past weeks, and new program elements specially paced for weekends. Our weekend show emphasizes interviews with writers, filmmakers, actors, and musicians, and often includes excerpts from live in-studio concerts. This week:

Louis C.K. On His 'Louie' Hiatus: 'I Wanted The Show To Feel New Again': The comic tells Fresh Air that after Season 3, he "aggressively forgot the show existed for a few months." Then he got back to work. Louie is now in its fourth season.

In 1970, Miles Davis Played Four Sets For A New Audience: That June, Miles Davis played four nights at the New York rock palace Fillmore East. Those performances are now out in full for the first time.

Civilian Life Taught This Military Dog Some New Tricks: As a bomb-detecting Marine, Zenit the German shepherd never chased his tail or dug holes. Those are skills he learned after he was adopted by his one-time professional partner, Cpl. Jose Armenta.

About Fresh Air

"If you want to understand a political conflict, it helps to understand the culture in which that conflict is taking place," says host Terry Gross. Fresh Air is one of the most popular programs on public radio, breaking the "talk show" mold, and Gross is known for her fearless and insightful interviews with prominent figures in American arts, politics, and popular culture. "When there is a crisis in a foreign country, we sometimes call up that country's leading novelist or filmmaker to get the cultural perspective." Fresh Air features daily reports and reviews from critics and commentators on music, books, movies, and other cultural phenomena that invade the national psyche.
