Ep. 015 Happy Birthday Leonard Bernstein - Part 2

This week, we pick up where we left off in the life and times of Leonard Bernstein.

Part way through, you will hear a static noise. Don’t be alarmed, it’s just the ghost of Leonard Bernstein paying Jon and Tina a visit as they chat about his storied life, which involves conducting with eyebrows, an 800 page FBI profile, hosting a party for the Black Panthers, and many more anecdotes both musical and non.
