PRI’s Peabody Award-winning Studio 360 with Kurt Andersen from WNYC often examines the interaction of art and everyday life. This past week, the show, which is “public radio’s smart and surprising guide to what’s happening in pop culture and the arts” featured Niki Russ Federman in a segment titled, “Aha Moment: John Zorn with a Schmear.”
Their candid conversation provides a particularly personal look into Niki’s path toward returning to Russ & Daughters after she explored worlds as varied as international relations, art, health care research, yoga, and business school. Studio 360 explores one “a-ha moment,” where the soul of klezmer music put Niki in touch with the soul of the store.
