Welcome to another week of Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio. It’s Monday and that means a new theme for the week, and that is not an unfortunate event - even though the story starts with an unfortunate event - the death of the composer!
This week we’re highlighting a work by author Lemony Snicket (otherwise known as Daniel Handler). It has a title that you might think would have been better for Spooky Week - “The Composer Is Dead”. It was written in 2009, and has music composed by Nathaniel Stookey to help tell the tale of a composer who died under suspicious circumstances. In today’s episode, we hear the introduction to the story and meet the inspector who begins an investigation into the mysterious death.
