*Classical (and Classic) Mike Wallace
The great CBS correspondent Mike Wallace, who died on April 7 at age 93 following a long illness, is best remembered for tough, dogged interviews with tyrants, presidents, celebrities and major cultural and political figures of his time. Wallace was also a devoted classical music lover whose daunting portfolio of interviews includes several tête-à-têtes with some of history’s most important classical artists, posing the same tough questions he would to his subjects from other disciplines. Featuring his interviews with VLADIMIR HOROWITZ, MARIA CALLAS and LUCIANO PAVAROTTI.

She sent a note explaining her position, and a video of her and some gifted friends (including the Carolina Chocolate Drops’ RHIANNON GIDDENS) singing the Dossett-penned Piedmont-style ballad ‘Vote Against Amendment One.’
