Due to a computer problem last weekend the opera that was to air on Nov 15 aired instead on Nov 8. Therefore, this Saturday, Nov 15 WXXI-FM will broadcast the Caramoor presentation of Donizetti's Lucrezia Borgia that was missed on Nov. 8. We apologize for this technical mishap.
Michael Barone, the host and senior executive producer of the national radio show Pipedreams, visited Rochester, New York and talked with WXXIâ€™s Brenda Tremblay about some of his favorite recordings.
