They are the third of the population who prefer to listen instead of speak, read instead of party, work alone instead of in a group. They’re the quiet ones, and now they have a new spokesperson: author Susan Cain. We live in a culture that is geared toward the more outgoing, says Cain, but on this Up to Date, she talks to us about the value of introverts in a loud and proud society. Cain tells us about famed leaders: Einstein, Van Gogh, Gandhi, Rosa Parks...who relied on reserved temperaments to guide them to success. Also today....the barbershop quartet has been around a long time...and it's still around. And the modern barbershop quartets are much more than bow ties and boater hats. The Heart of America Barbershop Chorus will be in full swing with a show on April 14th. In the last portion of Wednesday's Up to Date, barbershop quartet singers Dave Krause, Matt Moore, Rob Mathieu, and Jeff Wolff join Steve Kraske to talk about the modern-day barbershop quartet and sing some "tags" for us in the Up to Date studios.
