for the Week of August 24, 2001
to the Whole Show
York Escape by Wendy Paris
The crowded concrete jungle of New York City is the steam bath of all
American cities come high summer. Everyone's looking to get out of town,
and everyone who can't holes up at the movies. Our contributor Wendy
Paris couldn't join the Hampton's crowd, but she did save up enough
mad money for one night of cool luxury
and it's a trip she recommends.
Gospel Tour by Martin Stott
Martin Stott is a closet singer. He's a Marvin Gay trapped in an Anglo
skin. And, even though it seemed totally anti-intuitive to send a stiff
upper lip British fellow who can't even sing God Save the Queen on key
to join in the wild, free gospel music of Harlem, we knew it was the
perfect experiment. If music supposedly brings disparate people together,
this was our chance to prove it. So, Martin traveled to Harlem to see
if he could possibly get into the gospel groove
but a little bit
of personal history was holding him back
Legendary Cellist Yo-Yo Ma talks about his career and his newest passion,
the Silk Road Project.
Balaton by Anna Lengyel
Besides being Europe's largest lake, Lake Balaton was evidently THE
summer spot for Europeans, going all the way back to the Romans. With
mountains to the north and and curative hot springs off the Western
edge, many writers through history have fallen in love with the majesty
of Lake Balaton. Our reporter Anna Lengyel spent an old-time vacation
at Lake Balaton, literally soaking up the stories of those who had summered
there at various times through decades past.
