We’re featuring some covers and popular music with classical groups on this episode. While often associated with early rock and roll music, Jukeboxes and their popularity extends back much earlier, including swing, opera, and classical music! We’ll hear popular selections from David Bowie, the Beatles, and talk with Jethro Tull flutist Ian Anderson on today’s What’s New.

It's a new way for chamber music fans, and for prog rock fans to unite: a 'stand up' new release from Jethro Tull leader Ian Anderson. Jethro Tull - String Quartets is a collaboration with the Carducci String Quartet, Anderson, and John O'Hara. While Anderson has worked in the classical realm with A Classic Case, and An Orchestral Jethro Tull before, this March 2017 recording is a creative and clever re-imagining of Jethro Tull (and sometimes Bach!) WBAA's John Clare spoke to Anderson about the new release.
