A piece for “Wisconsin Life” discussed the question this week. It was broadcast on Wisconsin Public Radio in the morning. It was part of a story about Brian Derber, a North Woods violinmaker, or luthier, in Wisconsin.

    Thanks for spreading the word about this story. I presume you might have also seen that host of The Met Opera on radio, Margaret Juntwait passed away yesterday from Ovarian Cancer? You can find the Met’s statement on WPR.org at: http://www.wpr.org/met-opera-broadcast-host-juntwait-has-died

    Best,
