New England Almanac: Portraits in Sound of New England Life and Landscape





 1983 | Thomas Looker

Listeners fortunate enough to tune into the series of sound portraits which Thomas Looker has wrought out of the rich heritage of New England can enjoy what radio does best: painting pictures in the mind. One travels through the woods to grandmother’s house, drops a hook through the ice of Lake Champlain, takes part in the mysterious transformation of the sap of the sugar maple into the wonders of maple syrup, and enjoys the rustle of the fall leaves, all without moving from the easy chair. It is a wonderful journey which every American should take and which every American would enjoy. In the opinion of the Peabody Board this fine effort is worthy of Peabody recognition.
