With Heart and Voice became a national presence on public radio on January 17, 1989. On this edition of With Heart and Voice, we’ll celebrate over 30 years of broadcasts, including portions of Richard Gladwell’s very first program from that day in 1989. Join Peter DuBois for the celebration!

Program 1934

Labor Day
The observance of Labor Day traditionally marks the unofficial end of summer – AND, since it’s a quintessentially American holiday, on this edition of With Heart and Voice, we’ll focus primarily on sacred choral and organ music by American composers and performers. Join Peter DuBois for this all new program.
