Culture Yourself: Today At NPR For Friday, August 26, 2011

Let's be honest, here: This is not a day when the focus was on culture stories. It was a day when there was a lot of breaking hurricane news. But what's good, of course, is really good.

Fresh Air remembered songwriter Jerry Lieber with excerpts of a 1991 interview with him and his writing partner, Mike Stoller.

Not enough cool music for you? Tell Me More had Chuck Brown on today.

Movie reviews today include Vera Farmiga's directorial debut Higher Ground, the Paul Rudd comedy Our Idiot Brother, and the haunted house movie Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark.

Scheduling yesterday prohibited me from pointing out to you the Fresh Air interview with author Tom Perrotta about his rapture novel The Leftovers.
