Triad Arts Weekend: December 6, 2013

We've got the NC A&T Visual and Performing Arts University Choir with us here today on the show.  They're still jazzed from their two performances for the Obamas at the White House, and they're "Gonna Sing Till the Spirit Moves in Our Hearts" Live in Studio A! Then we take a look back to post-Civil War North Carolina, and the fascinating stories behind our state's many Civil War monuments. Author/photographer/historian Douglas Butler has studied them and discusses them all in his new book.  Later, on the heels of the science fiction television show Doctor Who's 50th anniversary, Eddie Garcia interviews Doctor Who comic book illustrator, Greensboro artist Kelly Yates.  He'll be giving a talk & drawing live at Geeksboro this weekend, so buckle your Tardis seatbelts.  And also, we have the story of a little ole nutcracker that could.  Executive Producer and General Manager of the UNCSA's production of The Nutcracker, Katherine Laidlaw may have all the pocketbooks and the headaches, but she's lovin' it.
