John Clare

A new program airs Sunday and Tuesday nights on WBAA Classical: What's New. Host John Clare features new music, new releases, and interesting guests. Hear a special preview of this week's What's New, and let us know what you think.

Two opportunities to celebrate the holiday season with the Bach Chorale Singers and the Lafayette Children's Choir in sacred and secular music in this weekend at First Baptist Church. WBAA's John Clare spoke to director Leann Starkey about the programs.

The exterior illuminations of Clark Griswold in the movie Christmas Vacation are famous. Some people use his display as a model when lighting up their own homes.

Lafayette resident Steve Eddy is one of those admirers, but not necessarily a follower.
