The Stars of Lord of the Rings Want to Make J.R.R. Tolkien’s Home Into a Museum

Thanks to Peter Jackson, fans of J.R.R. Tolkien can travel to New Zealand to visit sets and locations from The Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films. But if one of those fans really wanted to learn about Tolkien himself, and see the actual location where Middle-earth was created, they can’t. But that might be changing.

It’s a fundraising campaign aiming to buy the house located at 20 Northmoor Road and turn it into a full-on literary center and

Watch Julia Bullock Perform A Tiny Desk From Home : NPR

The Tiny Desk is working from home for the foreseeable future. Introducing NPR Music’s Tiny Desk (home) concerts, bringing you performances from across the country and the world. It’s the same spirit — stripped-down sets, an intimate setting — just a different space.

Soprano Julia Bullock prefers to be called a “classical singer.” It’s a rather humble, even vague, appellation for one of today’s smartest, most arresting vocalists in any genre.

She was just named Artist of the Year by Musical America, who labeled her an “agent of change.” Bullock, who also considers herself an activist, has shaken up the classical music world recently with provocative programming and expressive performances. You can witness just that in this extraordinary Tiny Desk (home) concert from Munich, Germany with pianist and conductor Christian Reif, whose sensitive playing seems to anticipate and enhance Bullock’s every phrase. He also happens to be her husband.

The home in 50 objects #20: Murphy radio, model A30C

The BBC began broadcasting in the 1920s and within a decade the radio had established itself in family life. The 1936 model pictured here — at home in either the living room or kitchen — spoke for the solidity and confidence of the medium.

Radio’s heyday ran from Christmas 1932 to the coronation of June 1953. King George V’s December message to the empire 88 years ago had families gathered around their radio sets. By the time his granddaughter Queen Elizabeth II was crowned, everyone was hankering for television.

Great, if sombre, moments marked radio’s paramount years: Neville Chamberlain’s 1939 broadcast to the nation that it was at war with Germany; Winston Churchill’s “finest hour” speech when the conflict had really got going.

Then, right in the middle of the bad times in 1942, up popped Roy Plomley and Desert Island Discs — still running, of course: its guest last
