Great Stories Behind Great Guitars, And How Narrative Affects The Market

Luke X. Martin
KCUR 89.3
Chuck Holley had to think on his feet when creating the images in 'A Perfectly Good Guitar.' The Missouri photographer never knew what kind of shooting conditions he might encounter in a songwriter's home.

One Missouri photographer has spent years collecting stories and making images of musicians and their most prized possession; their guitars. Today, Chuck Holley shares some of his favorites. Then, we visit with Nobel Prize-winning economist Robert Shiller about the possibility of an upcoming bubble. Shiller says many harbingers of recessions in the past are present, but something important is missing.

Robert Shiller will receive the 2017 Truman Medal for Economic Policy at the Plaza Branch of the Kansas City Public Library at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, October 23. The program is free. RSVP at TrumanLibraryInstitute.org.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9, my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers.

As culture editor, I oversee KCUR’s coverage of race, culture, the arts, food and sports. I work with reporters to make sure our stories reflect the fullest view of the place we call home, so listeners and readers feel primed to explore the places, projects and people who make up a vibrant Kansas City.
