We’ll start this morning with a look at some of the big stories that are developing this week.  WYPR’s Kenneth Burns and Fraser Smith join me to talk about what’s ahead in the Freddie Gray trials, and what we can expect as Democrats take the stage in their first presidential primary debate tomorrow night.

Then, Marvin Pinkert joins me to talk about the Jewish Museum of Maryland’s new exhibition, straight from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, that explores the work of the iconic singer/songwriter Paul Simon.

Theater Critic J. Wynn Rousuck will be here too, with her review of the new production at Baltimore’s Annex Theater, and the author Anne Tyler has been nominated for a Man Booker Prize for her latest novel.  The winner will be announced tomorrow.  This morning, Anne Tyler talks about A Spool of Blue Thread.
