There’s so much to be thankful for in National Public Radio’s programming, so many far-reaching interviews and discussions. Several of such moments have been captured in this volume of The Best of NPR: A Life in the Arts asks nine artists to discuss what it means to be a creative person. For example, Dame Margot Fonteyn, the legendary ballerina, expresses with aristocratic grace the importance of retaining one’s sense of self during a life of fame. Don Walser, a retired government worker who found his true calling as a yodeler, instills in listeners the sense that all dreams are achievable. All the interviews reveal the secret to NPR’s exceptional quality: intelligent questions asked of real people. R.A.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 98]
