Labor Day Specials: Kopps And Sinatras
Labor Day is supposed to be about celebrating the working people of America, in part by giving them the day off. We jumped in with all of our feet, and grabbed some past interviews to run.
At 8:00: one of our favorite regional authors--good books, good interviews--Amy Stewart, took a new tack in her writing with a novel based on a real person. That is Girls Waits With Gun, her first book about Constance Kopp, tough guy in a skirt from 1914.
At 9:00: Frank Sinatra would be 103 if he were around today. The centenary of his birth was observed in 2015 by the book Sinatra's Century: One Hundred Notes on the Man and His World. It's not really a biography, more like 100 essays on the singer's importance in his time and beyond. We brought in several of Sinatra's songs to add to the mood.
