Public Radio Music Month

As April is upon us and it brings with it more than just the first hint of spring. April is also Public Radio Music Month  — a national campaign to help raise the visibility of the diverse music that can only be found on public radio. We are fortunate in our community to have two such stations: Classical 91.5 and WRUR 88.5.

Viola-mania

Got viola?

As I walked over to Eastman this morning to get some (iced) coffee, I saw a number of people with instrument cases. This week, of all times, I felt pretty safe in assuming that these cases were holding violas, and not violins.

New beginnings and the Jester conducts

Hi! Happy New Year!  Since it’s a time for new beginnings, perhaps it’s time for me actually to start keeping in touch and writing some things here. I’m not quite sure what it will be. Brenda describes it as a sandbox. A sandbox is a much more inviting notion than a blank page. Hopefully you can jump in and play too when you have the time.

No more procrastinating; let’s get started.

Here’s a cool new thing I learned this weekend. Danny Kaye was a conductor. Danny Kaye, the Court Jester, conducted the New York Philharmonic and other major orchestras.

October Radio Drive Coming Up and We Neeed Volunteer Help on the Phones

Yes, it is radio drive time again! The drive begins on Friday October 16 and ends on Friday October 23.
 
We need volunteers for all shifts on every day. The shifts are 6AM to10AM, 10AM to 2PM, and 2PM to 6PM. The most important shifts are the early and late shifts as they are the "drive time" shifts. Shift times may vary on the weekend.  We know that many of you work or have family duties during the normal shift time, so feel free to come in at whatever hours you can fit into your schedule.
