Pipedreams, which began production in 1982, remains the only nationally-distributed weekly radio program exploring the art of the pipe organ.  Building upon a curiosity which began in his teens, host and senior executive producer Michael Barone has been involved with the pipe organ for more than 50 years. He has been recognized nationally for his outstanding contributions to the world of organ music.  Michael brought Pipedreams to Rochester in 2009, recording two Pipedreams Live programs featuring students and faculty from the Eastman School of Music in one of the most "remarkably popular and successful weekend organ festivals" ever.  Michael’s talent and commitment has been recognized with numerous awards, including the American Guild of Organists President’s Award in 1996, the Distinguished Service Award of the Organ Historical Society in 1997 and the 2001 ASCAP-Deems Taylor Award. In November 2002 he was selected for induction to the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame.
