Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Kuralt narrates his collection of anecdotes in his familiar, avuncular style…The program is lighthearted as Kuralt shares his enthusiasm, not only for the season and all its new beginnings and awakenings, but also for all the different people and traditions at each stop. He astutely finds charming, articulate and unusual characters who succinctly portray themselves and their interests. Kuralt also shares just enough of himself, telling us, for example, of his delight with a narcissus named for him. Music and sounds from each location, from brass bands to bird songs, enliven each anecdote and locale.”  AudioFile
