This week on Artworks we talk with Jim Richter. Jim is a rock and blues mandolin player and the founder of the Jim Richter Mandolin Camp for the Rest of Us. He’ll talk to us about a 15 year gap in his playing, the myth of the “perpetual beginner,” and how to play Jimi Hendrix on the mandolin.
Also in the program we’ll hear how author Christopher Coake‘s personal experience with survivor guilt shows up in his debut horror novel, You Came Back. And Mia Partlow tells us how an art professor image of chandeliers wound up at the 2012 Olympic Games.
