Over the next few weeks, we’ll hear the audio versions of these portraits on “Off the Clock."
This summer, Weekend Edition Saturday is listening to the sounds of music al fresco. Today, we present an audio postcard of a trumpeter we recently heard blowing "The Star-Spangled Banner" just down the street from NPR.
