They are part of today’s widespread and quietly growing 'culture of waste.'" #PopeInNYC
We spend the hour remembering the renowned actor, musician, composer and activist Theodore Bikel, who died Tuesday at the age of 91. Bikel was known for creating the role of Baron von Trapp in "The Sound of Music" on Broadway and for the role of Tevye in "Fiddler on the Roof," which he played more than 2,000 times.
