The Department of Music at Southeast Missouri State University will be performing their opera 'the Bartered Bride' on Jan. 20 and 22. In addition to the show being sung completely in English, the music is catchy. Many of the characters are refreshingly double-casted. KRCU's Lindsey Grojean sat in on one of their music rehearsals for this audio postcard.

At Christmastime, Jack Frost nipping at your nose sounds cute. When you are shoveling snow in January, you worry about meeting his ugly cousin, frostbite.

While hypothermia, the lowering of core body temperature, is deadly, frostbite---freezing of the skin and underlying tissues--- can cause permanent tissue damage,  as well as lead to amputation and disability. The Mayo Clinic reports there are three stages of frostbite.
