Wednesday on Lake Effect: NPR's Ron Elving, Art Therapy, 'The Violet Hour'

Wednesday on Lake Effect

NPR senior editor and correspondent Ron Elving talks about the fast-developing national political scene. Later, how art therapy focuses more on the process and less on how a piece of art turns out. Then, we look at the last play of the Renaissance Theaterworks season, which is set at the dawn of the jazz age in New York. And a project coming to Milwaukee tonight brings to light some long lost Yiddish songs.
