Fresh Air 2017

Books discussed with authors interviewed on Fresh Air in 2017, or that (re-)aired in 2017. I prefer to exclude the Maureen Corrigan reviews and stick to the interviewees if you don't mind.

Note: I've frozen the list to avoid improper entries being added.

jo shouldn't this list include also books reviewed (typically by maureen corrigan) on fresh air? should i add them?


message 2: by Brian (last edited Apr 29, 2017 05:50PM) (new)

Brian I kind of prefer not to, as I'm trying to keep this to the people that Terry interviews. Honestly, I usually skip over the book/music/tv reviews at the end of the show. I'm not one to pay much attention to professional reviewers.

It would be easier for me to keep the list junk-free (some people decide to add random books for some reason from time to time) if we exclude the MC reviews, but I won't fight you if you want to add them.

You could also consider creating a new list just for those? (There are many!)


message 3: by jo (new)

jo there are not many fresh air lists (four?), but sure, i may create one for the novels. i have added a few from this month, and since you specify re-broadcasts i did those too (in fact they were not re-broadcasts but books that had come out in paperback). feel free to delete any of course!


message 4: by jo (new)

jo no one has added the new richard ford memoir to gr yet.


message 5: by Brian (new)

Brian I said I'd do this /roughly/ monthly. ;) Added and we're up to date through 5/12 now.


message 6: by jo (last edited May 14, 2017 11:58PM) (new)

jo i started doing it religiously daily because i resumed listening to Fresh Air day by day in podcast.


message 7: by Brian (new)

Brian Up to date through 15 September.


message 8: by Ajay (new)

Ajay I can't seem to find a way to like this list. Can you please make it so that that is possible? I have been able to click on like on the other Fresh Air lists; just not this one. Thanks.


message 9: by Brian (new)

Brian Hm, maybe because it's a static list (I've had some people add random stuff here and since the year's over, pretty sure there aren't any new ones to add....)?
