Mount Everest Explorer Conrad Anker--Art Collectors Dorothy & Herbert Vogel--Jazz's Jimmy Heath
Jim Cotter speaks with Conrad Anker. His 2007 expedition to Mt. Everest to retrace the steps of the 1920s British explorer George Mallory is the subject of a newly released documentary film from National Geographic, which opened at the Franklin Institute on August 6, 2010.
Susan Lewis considers art collectors Dorothy and Herbert Vogel and their gifts of 50 works to a museum in each of the 50 states, as well as related exhibitions at the Delaware Art Museum and Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
We listen back to Jim Cotter's interview with Jazz legend Jimmy Heath. Temple University Press published his autobiography I Walked with Giants in January 2010.
