Joan Baez will make an appearance at Bloomington’s Buskirk-Chumley Theatre this Friday.  Baez told WFIU’s George Walker how she picks her songs and how she makes them her own. Somewhat ruefully, she says it’s taken her forty years to fully understand how to be relaxed and let humor be an easy part of her performances. He also asks her for tips for air travel and she does have a few, but her own choice is a bus.

George Walker

George Walker was born in Winchester, Virginia, and raised in Owl’s Head, Maine, and Valhalla, New York. After graduating from the University of Michigan, he came to Bloomington in 1966 and completed an M.A.T. degree in English at Indiana University. George began announcing for WFIU in 1967. Currently, along with regularly hosting classical music shows, he interviews artists in a wide variety of areas and reviews plays and operas. He’s the proud father of grown sons Ben Walker (and his wife Elise Katzif Walker) and Aaron Walker. In his time away from WFIU, George enjoys an active life with wife Carolyn Lipson-Walker, singing, reading, exercising and playing guitar.
