Hallmark Celebrates 100 Years / Rob Kapilow on Frederic Chopin's 200th Birthday
This year Hallmark celebrates 100 years of warm wishes, heartfelt sentiments, and all the words you needed to say but could not think up on your own.
Steve Kraske sits down with Hallmark Card historian Lynley Farris to discuss how the need for emotional connection has stayed consistent over the decades even while the means by which we connected - the images and editorial used in Hallmark's greeting cards - changed to reflect the times.
Also, composer, conductor, and public radio favorite Rob Kapilow stops by the KCUR studios to help us celebrate the 200th birthday of piano virtuoso and composer Frederic Chopin, whose compositions are among the best of classical music's romantic era.
