As many opera lovers and lovers of the human voice know most "classical"
radio stations have either been downgraded to playing a top 40 list or even
worse. VOCAL MUSIC HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM ALMOST EVERY STATION. WHRB, 95.3
FM, Harvard University's long standing classical station is one of the few
stations in the U.S.which plays great historical recordings from the past
and continually dips into their superb collection to pay tribute to great
singers of the past. The host of the Monday program, David Elliot, President
of Board of WHRB, always delves into his superb record collection. They are
one of the last remaining classical music stations to feature great singers
of the past and present. For those who are outside of the listening radius
and cannot listen via the radio, you can log onto their website, whrb.org,
and listen via the internet worldwide.
Of important note, there will be a Special Anniversaries Tribute to Great
Italian Singers, including, a special tribute to the recently deceased
wonderful lyric tenor Cesare Valletti, Two Great lyric tenors, Dino Borgioli
and Fernando De Lucia (albeit, a bit controversial), and two Great
Baritones, Giuseppi De Luca and Riccardo Stracciari, hosted by David
Elliott, on Monday, 10/23/2000, from 7:00 - 10:00 p.m, on 95.3 FM (or
whrb.org). He has promised a special selection of rare out of print
recordings. Highly recommended listening!
Warm Regards to Opera Lovers,
