After The Lebanese Civil War, An Apology [9.26.2013]

Assaad Chaftari had served as an intelligence official during the Lebanese Civil War. It was years later, when heard his son saying disparaging things about Muslims, that he decided to repent publicly for his actions during war. Also in this show: For more than 50 years, Wally Boot has been working for the Steinway piano company, helping to make the pianos that are shipped to the grandest concert halls in the world; and newly discovered recordings from  musicians Don McLean, Jerry Jeff Walker, Pete Seeger  and others at the tiny coffee house Caffe Lena.
