    Classical Rewind (My Music) From the romantic mood of Beethoven's 'Moonlight Sonata' to the dramatic emotions of Orff's 'O Fortuna', this program visits the greatest compositions and composers of all time. The program weaves the stories of their works with visual interpretations of the music set to iconic images of nature, fantasy, historical locations, architecture and art. Interviews with contemporary performers in both the classical and popular arenas offer shared musical memories and personal favorites.
    The program is designed to reach both long-time music lovers as well as those beginning the journey of exploring the masterworks. For many, this is the music they grew up enjoying and appreciating. For others, the melodies are recognizable from movies, television, commercials and even Fourth of July celebrations. This special explores the origins of the music, stories and anecdotes about the composers and their works, and how so many of the classics have become part of our common culture.

    KQED NEWSROOM [#109H] NSA Surveillance, Mayor Chuck Reed and Farewell to Candlestick Park
    NSA Surveillance Programs Under Fire
    Pressure on the Obama administration to overhaul the National Security Agency's controversial surveillance program reached an all-time high. In a week when Silicon Valley executives, including the CEOs of Apple, Yahoo and Google, met with President Obama urging him to reign in the NSA's practices, a panel of advisers appointed by the president recommended major oversight of the program. That followed on the heels of a federal court ruling Monday which questioned the constitutionality of the agency's wholesale collection of personal cell phone data.

    Guests:
    Michelle Quinn, San Jose Mercury News
    Cindy Cohn, Electronic Frontier Foundation

    San Jose Mayor Tackles Pension Reform
    Mayor Chuck Reed is spearheading a ballot initiative to reform the state's retirement benefits system. His proposal would allow public agencies to negotiate reduced pensions for future work while preserving pensions already earned. Opponents of the measure, including other California mayors and labor unions, see the move as an attack on the retirement security of police, firefighters and other public workers.

    Farewell to Candlestick Park
    Monday night's football game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Atlanta Falcons at Candlestick Park will mark the end of an era. It's the 49ers' last home game of the regular season, and a last hurrah for the park, which is slated to close after 53 years. While best known as a sports venue, Candlestick has hosted many other events, including the Beatles' last official concert in 1966 and a visit by Pope John Paul II in 1987. Scott Shafer takes a look at a Bay Area landmark affectionately known as "The 'Stick" with sports columnist Glenn Dickey.
