November 13, 2000: Aaron Copland Centennial

Each hour of this program includes music of Aaron Copland, in observance of the 100th anniversary of his birth (14 November 1900). Also, John Ireland's Tee Deum in F is presented for mental comparison with the old Beatles standard, "Hey Jude." Finally, an excerpt of Walter Cronkite reading from his memoir A Reporter's Life recounts the confusion and challenges of reporting the 1948 US Presidential election.
