NPR listeners will be familiar with the soothing timbre of Jim Metzner's voice as he describes cultural and ecological wonders from across the globe on his short-form documentary series "Pulse of the Planet." Since 1988, Metzner and crew have traveled to the Earth's farthest reaches to record audio of humans, animals, and natural phenomena for the program, which is broadcast on 250 stations worldwide. To celebrate the show's 30th anniversary, "Pulse of the Planet" is going on tour this fall, with a kickoff event on October 5 in Metzner's hometown of Marbletown at the Stone Ridge Library at 5:30pm. The program will celebrate the world of sound, with stories and audio clips from choice "Pulse" episodes. Prizes will be awarded for whoever brings the best signature sound of the Hudson Valley (live or prerecorded) and best animal vocalization imitation. (845) 687-7023.
