Episode 7: Birds, Bees, and More

Jay begins with some music by precocious types: a Shostakovich piano trio, written when the composer was 17; the Mendelssohn Octet, written when the composer was 16 — that sort of thing. Then he talks some politics. He also gets into the bees — and the birds and the bees. (He tells a love story.) He ends with what he calls “probably the most glorious shout I know” — a Christmas song.
