In this broadcast, host Mayuko Fujino speaks with Lesley Doyel, the president of the Roeliff Jansen Historical Society. Lesley’s kind and loving observations of wildlife in her backyards in busy Manhattan and rural Hudson Valley remind us to appreciate the here and now. The here and now is also the culmination of people’s lives before us. Lesley shares how the New Deal-era environmental improvement program restored the trees we see now in Copake Falls. The trees had been devastated by Copake Iron Works, an iron extraction and production operation that played a crucial role in local development. Also, Lesley and her husband Nick are the people behind Lyrichord Discs, a record label specializing in music from around the world and early classical music. We will hear bird-themed songs recorded in Asia from the Lyrichord catalog.

"Beakuency" invites the local community to be inspired by the joy, beauty, and wisdom bird enthusiasts find in the nature of our neighborhoods. Every episode features an interview with local bird people, plus a freeform mix of sound made by birds and humans inspired by birds, and “Birds of Wave Farm,” a field recording journal from Wave Farm, in Acra, New York. Hosted by Mayuko Fujino. Playlists and photos for the previous shows: https://beakuency.tumblr.com.
