Studio 360: Art Heist & Martin McDonagh

And an LA resident ditches her car and tries to live the 1980s hit “Walking in LA.”

Publisher's Summary

Breaking into an art museum with works worth tens of millions of dollars should be harder than stealing from a Walmart, right? Perhaps not.

Next, Martin McDonagh has made a career writing dark comedies in which blood flows by the gallon, but his own story reads more like a Dickens novel.

Then, in 1982, the song “Walking in LA” by the new wave pop band Missing Persons quickly made Los Angeles the poster child for a national bad habit.

After that, in the new book Reinventing Bach, Paul Elie explores how performers and recording artists of the last century — including organist Albert Schweitzer, pianist Glenn Gould, and cellist Pablo Casals — kept teasing out the new in Bach's 300-year-old music.

And finally, Mary Miller fell in love with a man who made his fortune flipping houses. But when the relationship ended, Mary wasn’t just heartbroken — she wanted to beat him at his own game. [Broadcast Date: October 27, 2012]
