Nov 3, 2017: In case you missed it I was on the “California Report” (KQED 88.5 FM) talking about the impact of the California wild fires on Bernie and Kat Krause's home, and their work. The story includes a short piece of music that I recorded on the Viola da Gamba and mixed with one of Bernie's soundscapes while staying at Wild Sanctuary many years ago (entitled "Magpie's Song" - from the Gary Snyder poem). Many thanks to Craig Miller (KQED Science Editor) for inviting me to participate in this. - Jack Hines
