A proud native of the Second City, producer Jenny Lawton joined Studio 360 in 2007. Since then, she's produced the show's American Icons special on I Love Lucy, lots of stories in the Aha Moments series, and a portrait of the Japanese tea ceremony from Kyoto. She also serves as the managing editor of studio360.org and coordinates the show's internship program. Jenny started recording interviews as a Watson Fellow in India and Spain, researching the origins of flamenco dance. She cut her teeth in journalism at Chicago Public Radio, where she filed stories on culture, politics, technology, and the environment for WBEZ as well as NPR's Morning Edition and PRI's The World, among other programs. Jenny was awarded a USC-Annenberg/NEA Arts Journalism Fellowship, and lectures about radio and sound design at NYU and her alma mater, Kenyon College.
The Piano Doctor
Thursday, March 26, 2009 - 04:55 PM
Kurt's brother David Andersen is one of the top piano technicians in Southern California -- he's also an accomplished rock n' roller (and a total ringer for The Dude from 'The Big Lebowski' ). Kurt visited him at home in Malibu and at work on the pianos of some leading lights in jazz and film composition.
Listen to the brothers on Studio 360 this week, above.
And check out a feature about them in LA Weekly.
The Dude abides.
