RA­DIO CHOICE

STEPHEN FRY (pic­tured) is plagued by his in­abil­ity to re­mem­ber faces. All sorts of thing stick in his head, but he just can’t seem to fix peo­ple’s fea­tures in his mem­ory. In THE CU­RI­OUS CASES OF RUTHERFORD & FRY (RA­DIO 4, 9.30AM, 8.45PM), he asks Adam Rutherford and Han­nah Fry to look into his ‘face blind­ness’, also known as prosopag­nosia, to in­ves­ti­gate the pathol­ogy of the con­di­tion and sug­gest any ways of re­liev­ing it.

PA­TRICK KIELTY (RA­DIO 2, 2PM) set­tles into a stu­dio on Mu­sic Row in Nashville ahead of to­mor­row’s Coun­try Mu­sic As­so­ci­a­tion Awards. He will be talk­ing to some of Nashville’s stars about their favourite venues, and play­ing tracks from this year’s nom­i­nees. Singer­song­writ­ers In­grid An­dress and Joshua Hed­ley will

be on the show for some live coun­try mu­sic.

MEN had a habit of fall­ing in love with Alma Schindler. She was a com­poser, writer and so­cialite — and a great beauty. Her mar­riage to Gus­tav Mahler was to end in tears when the death of one of their chil­dren, as well as Mahler’s own poor health, took a toll on the cou­ple’s strained re­la­tion­ship. In the drama MAHLER’S MUSE (RA­DIO 4, 2.15PM), we hear how the dis­cov­ery of Alma’s af­fair with the ar­chi­tect Wal­ter Gropius was a ter­ri­ble blow to Mahler — and how that blow was re­flected in his mu­sic.
