Christian Steiner

On this week's Valentine Edition of Open Air, host David Latulippe ignores the "holiday" completely while talking to pianist Stephen Hough, who is performing Liszt with the San Francisco Symphony this week, but broaches the subject with comedian Kurt Bodden, and gets some historical and literary background about valentines from our regular contributor, critic Peter Robinson.
