We were thrilled to work this week with KQED Radio News Producer Nina Thorsen, who’s helped with The Do List for nearly as long as the show has been on the air. We talk about the pairing of a teacher and his brilliant former student in a piano recital for four hands, a chance to sample five new operas by West Coast Composers, the “gypsy punk” of Gogol Bordello and more. Hope you like it.
