A November 29 segment on New Jersey radio station WWFM’s public-affairs program “A Tempo with Rachel Katz” takes an in-depth look at new developments for musicians transporting instruments on commercial airlines. Heather Noonan, the League of American Orchestras’ vice president for advocacy, is interviewed about the current situation. Also speaking during the segment is Time For Three double bassist Ranaan Meyer, who experienced difficulties traveling when his instrument was recently denied access on an airline flight. The same November 29 radio program includes a segment featuring musicians from the Bay-Atlantic Symphony performing at a New Jersey highway rest stop, providing an oasis of calm during stressful Thanksgiving weekend travel.
