February 6

Listen here »

Today in history, February 6th, back in 1952, Elizabeth the Second ascended the throne to become Queen of the United Kingdom, succeeding her father, King George the Sixth. February 6th is also the day that Rastafarians recognize as Bob Marley Day. And February 6th is also the annual date for the lesser known National Pay-A-Compliment Day. Recently we stopped by the High Museum of Art to find out who you felt were compliment-worthy. And one program note, the final compliment is in German and it’s a young lady thanking her Atlanta host family for a super year.

Dr. Susan Copeland, Assistant Professor of English at Clayton State University, reads from “Song of the Chattahoochee” by Sidney Lanier.

It’s possible that you recognize that name from a large body of water just north of Atlanta—however you may not know that the man behind the name was a post-Civil War teacher, flutist, organist, novelist and poet from Macon, Georgia. Earlier Dr. Copeland stopped by to reacquaint us with our lake’s namesake.
