Be sure to catch Weekend America (schedule varies) on your local NPR affiliate this weekend.
Artist James Plakovic discusses his work "World Beat Music", and map of the world rendered as a symphonic score.
As I've mentioned here before, I've known James since 1984, back when we all called him Jim. Well, not all of us called him Jim. His mom called him Jamie.
Note to James: for $100, I will delete that last sentence.
