And just like that we’re into 2013. Many people around the world take the occasion of the new year to replace unproductive habits with new opportunities and possibilities.

For the first show of the year, host Terrance McKnight presents a program that speaks to the ideal of generosity and compassion. The program features music and stories of composers and performers whose random acts of kindness and compassion continues to inspire us throughout this new year.

What a wonderful photograph this is !! Such hope here , especially after just seeing the film "Life of PI" with its collage of life moving through destructive forces. Always appreciate your aesthetic, Terrance & WQXR !Thank you, and looking forward to tonight's program.
