In A Tale of Two Music Cities, editor Tim Leffel heads south to Nashville and Memphis in to search of the roots of popular music. Everyone knows that Nashville is predominantly country and Memphis is predominantly bit rock ‘n’ roll. But as Tim sees it, these two Tennessee cities also played a big part as crossroads for the spread of gospel, blues, soul, R&B, and jazz.
Meanwhile, in Once Upon a Time in Vienna, Amy Rosen turns travel into a fairy tale, complete with sumptuous feasts, horse-drawn carriages, and a grand ball in Vienna. Even Prince Charming has a cameo in this dreamlike visit to Vienna.
Then it’s back to reality at the Billingsgate Market in London where something fishy is going on. In The Fish That Made London, writer Donald Strachan hunts down the freshest fish in London and discovers an historic fish market that opens and closes well before any normal person sits down for breakfast.
