Publisher's Summary

Hear conservative William F. Buckley, musicians Stew and Heidi Rodewald, and jazz critic Kevin Whitehead, on this edition of Fresh Air.

William F. Buckley died on Wednesday. Buckley is often cited with bringing conservative thought into the mainstream in liberal post-war America. He was the founder of the conservative magazine the National Review and for many years, the magazine's editor-in-chief. His popularity as a public intellectual increased through his television appearances, particularly as the host of the long-running television show Firing Line. Buckley was the author of more than 50 books. We'll listen back to our 1989 interview with Buckley.

Then Stew and Heidi Rodewald speak with TV critic David Bianculli. They're the founders of the band The Negro Problem. Their new musical Passing Strange is an autobiographical look at Stew's journey through music, and is on Broadway now.

And Kevin Whitehead reviews Mark Miller's High Hat, Trumpet, and Rhythm, a new biography of singer and trumpet player Valaida Snow. [Broadcast Date: February 29, 2008]
