I mightlisten to a 1-2 hr weekly Broadway musical show.

Does WCSB still have a weekly classical music show?

WRUW has a weekly Broadway musical show. It's been on for at least a decade, I believe. It's on Sundays at noon, and it's called Sunday Matinee.

Click here for the latest archived episode of that show.

I think you should do a classical music show...you have that classic demeanor that would go well will Beethoven's 9th.

most of the old albums that i collect for the names and/or covers are classical music. i could probably do a decent classical show if i wanted. but it's not all "classical" per se...most of it is like big band music or "honky-tonk" music or something.
and i just bought an old album of square dances, complete with calls. haven't listened to it yet, i'll probably debut it on friday! ha

Ilona's Hungarian show has classical music but of course with a Hungarian composer tie-in.

Shakesomeaction -- have you ever heard WRUW's "Your Father's Oldsmobile"? It's mostly popular stuff from the 1920s through the 1940s. WRUW recently lost certain of their more long-standing shows, so I don't know if this show is still on the schedule. But if it's gone, maybe you might consider creating a similar programme? From what I understand, the only programme which WCSB currently has which showcases anything like 'Broadway' is of course "The Music Of Science Fiction And Fantasy". Also, WRUW had a programme showcasing movie music -- particularly contemporary shtuff -- about two years ago. I believe it was called "Father Hell's Musical Hour".

As always:

hmmm...this is something to consider. i'd definitely do an entire episode of 30's-50's classical/swing/honky tonk instrumentals. i don't know if i could commit to doing it every week though! for now they're just blended in with the rest of the mess.

In the whopping two shows that I've done I've snuck in a couple classical (art music) songs. I plan on slipping more in as I get more cozy. Right now I'm just getting a feel for what I'm doing.

I know the music school faculty would be thrilled if there were an art music (that's their fancy name for it, as classical denotes a specific period in music...yadda yadda) show.

Filly McFillin inserted some psych pseudo-musical type parodies into his show a couple of Sundays ago. Parodies of broadway musicals are excellent, one of the greatest of course being Zappa's _Thingfish_.
