Different Drum

drum2.gif

When Alex Weiss, the leader and composer of Different Drum, left his native New York to hitchhike across the US, his goal was to play music. That goal has traveled far and wide and landed him in Durham, NC where he performs a style of Afro-Latin music combined with the jazz standards that surrounded him in his youth. Weiss and the band join host Frank Stasio to discuss Different Drum’s unique sound and play live.

Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
