Join us for a romp through the kaleidoscopic sonic playground of John Cage, as WNYC celebrates the 95th birthday anniversary of this patriarch of American contemporary music with hours of radio you won't hear anywhere else.

24:33 features rare audio drawn from the WNYC archives over the past 40 + years, including live performances and interviews with Cage — as well as Cage tributes, commentary, and performances by some of the most influential musicians of our time. We also hear recent recollections from artists such as choreographer Merce Cunningham, pianist Margaret Leng Tan, and singer Joan LaBarbara, as well as Laurie Anderson and Meredith Monk.

In addition to 24:33 on our HD and internet channel WNYC2, Evening Music features ten days of special Cage-related programming, beginning August 27th and heard every evening at 7PM on WNYC-FM.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

Blanchard has just come out with a new album that expands on that score, and he talked to us about his experiences writing about Katrina.
