As part of VPR’s series, Vermont Quits, we look at how tobacco settlement funds have been used in the state to help people kick the habit. Also, we get an update on public meetings surrounding a defunct asbestos mine in Eden and Lowell. And, we bring you the sounds of a unique portable organ.
Vermont’s own Gwyneth Walker is in the VPR Classical spotlight Friday, October 12! This year she celebrates her 60th birthday, and VPR Classical joins Chandler Music Hall in Randolph in honoring the occasion. Chandler has two special music events this coming weekend (Oct. 13th and 14th). VPR Classical celebrates by featuring several of Walkers recordings throughout the day. Listen for music by Walker at 8 a.m., 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.
