A serenade can be a romantic surprise – or an awkward one. Today, women's singing group Q4 share stories of memorable serenades. Later, a local chocolatier honors his grandparents through the confections he creates. We also hear a doctor's thoughts on healing broken hearts.



At 2:08 p.m. – Sound Reflections: Q4
On Valentine's Day, the Q4 quartet keeps an old tradition alive – the art of serenading. The old tunes remain the best tunes for the Seattle women's singing quartet, a group delivering singing Valentines for the past six years. What started out as a fundraiser has created a space for creating unexpected and unforgettable moments.

At 2:20 p.m. – Medicine And Broken Hearts
Your heart is the center of everything that happens to you. It pushes your blood through more than 60,000 miles of veins and arteries each day. You can feel you heart speed up when you're in motion or you're nervous. And you feel it ache someone you love hurts you. Dr. Joseph Austin is a cardiovascular surgeon at Overlake Hospital and Medical Center in Bellevue. He's worked on broken hearts for 16 years. He tells Jeannie Yandel how he fell in love with the human heart years ago, and what his work means to him.

An old laptop got Rosalie Gale thinking about trading. Since that day, she's been performing an experiment with stuff. She trades things people give her for other things. Each item must have a story, and Rosalie will only take something off your hands if you share that story. She tells Jeannie Yandel what trading has taught her.
