  • Hosted by Elena See, Bob Cristiansen, Valerie Kahler

Elena See hosts Classical Evenings Monday-Wednesday.

Elena started her radio career in Minnesota in 2001, working as part of the production team for Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion. When she's not on the public radio airwaves, Elena usually spends her time with her family (which includes several enormous dogs), searching out new music venues with friends, reading great (and not-so-great) books, and pretending she can play the guitar.

Bob Christiansen hosts Classical Evenings Thursday-Saturday.

Bob has been an announcer and program director for nearly 30 years. Christiansen also hosts shifts on Minnesota Public Radio's classical music stations, including hosting "The Opera," a weekly program devoted to one of his personal weaknesses.

Valerie Kahler hosts Classical Evenings Sunday nights.

MADELEINE BRAND, host:

German Left Courts the Working Class

Apr 23, 2008

A new political party in Germany has made saving the working class and the country's welfare system rallying points for attracting votes. It has been drawing support from the mainstream parties with a radical message.

The party, Die Linke, or the Left Party, is a merger of the reformed Communist Party from East Germany and discontented former Social Democrats. One of its co-leaders, Oskar Lafontaine, says that Germany shouldn't turn its back on working people just as they are increasingly struggling to make ends meet.

Dance Craze Tecktonik Spreads Through Europe

Mar 14, 2008

With the Macarena long past, a new European dance craze is set to invade U.S. shores.

The Tecktonik began just outside Paris — and is spreading to nightclubs and onto the streets across Europe.

At the Metropolis, one of the biggest nightclubs in the Paris region, the music goes by a lot of different names. Electro. Jump style. Hard style. Hard core. But the only dance is the Tecktonik.

The customers at the club are mostly in their teens and early 20s, middle class, and from every ethnic background. They look as if they were raised by Madonna and Marilyn Manson.
