When I was about four years old my parents bought a record player for me. They probably never imagined that one day I would be on the radio playing music from a turntable or a CD player on Classical 91.5. In those days there were records that played at 78, 45 or 33 and one third RPM (Revolutions Per Minute).
My first LP (long playing) record featured Victor Herbert’s “March of the Toys” from Babes In Toyland. It has special meaning for me because it was my first classical recording that I owned.
During that time my parents took me to RPO concerts with Howard Hanson conducting.
W.A. Mozart and Howard Hanson would be my next picks; however I enjoy music from the pre-Baroque to the 21st century. I’d like to think that’s reflected in my programming.
