Culture Maven review: “Natalie Wood: What Remains Behind” Sunday, May 10 2020 

Film review and podcast by c d kaplan

There certainly was a lingering sadness in the life of mid 20th C Hollywood star Natalie Wood.

But, what may be even more sad is that she’s remembered more for the manner of her untimely death, than for her acting and goodness. Or what a doting mother she was.

She was a strong woman, but had her insecurities. Like most all human beings. That, of course, played out in public, given the nature of her high profile film career.

As a teen in the 60s, I frankly was smitten, as I discuss in my review. And would have liked this HBO documentary to spend less time on the manner of her drowning off Catalina Island, and more about her as a person.

That plaint notwithstanding, there’s plenty enough here to recommend the movie.

For more details, listen to the podcast above.

Ready for some great music?

WFPK Album of the Week: Laura Marling – Song For Our Daughter Sunday, May 10 2020 

Each week, WFPK features a new release with the Album of the Week. Listen for tracks on air and check out the audio and links here!

For her 7th album, Song For Our Daughter, Laura Marling made a few challenges for herself to write beyond her usual boundaries, in part using tricks she picked up from her side project, LUMP.

While also working toward a degree in psychoanalysis, Marling wanted to write lyrics that would help arm the next generation as an artist now in her thirties and able to pass along wisdom collected, while also continuing her style of responding to characters from famous books and stories as a means to continue her own ideas.

Using sparse and minimal arrangements, the British singer-songwriter took the occasional musical inspiration from Paul Simon and Paul McCartney, allowing her acoustic to shine in the way it has on so many of her live stream guitar lessons.

WFPK’s Album of the Week is made possible by support from local businesses and you! Find out more at

Album available at Guestroom Records and Matt Anthony’s Record Shop.
