A Conversation With Andrei Codrescu: Poet and NPR commentator Andrei Codrescu is preparing for the death of the written word. His latest, "Bibliodeath: My Archives (With Life In Footnotes)," looks at his own four–decade writing career to examine how language and technology have evolved. The rebirth of words into new forms, he writes, is like "the passage of the soul from one body into another." Andrei Codrescu joins us.

Art Of Our City: 'Stairway To Heaven,' Cello Style: In June, former Seattle Symphony principal cellist Joshua Roman was in the KUOW studios, along with current Symphony cellists Roberta Downey and Walter Gray, and KUOW host and cellist–in–residence Dave Beck. We do a lot of live music in our performance studio, but this rendition of "Stairway to Heaven" arranged by Roman — with him on the Jimmy Page licks — was something special.
