I was wondering what the band and song name was for the music that was played after the Rob Nixon interview on Rachel Carson.

How can I get a copy of Ms. Carson's lettter to Dorothy Freeman that was read at her memorial, the letter Dixon read in his piece today??

On your program the interviewee asserts that Silent Spring made a big splash in American culture when in came out in 1962 which I remember. However there was no coverage on PBS as Mr. Dixon asserts, since PBS didn't exist until 1970.
