Friday, December 29th, 2003 ... 6:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. ... KZSU, 90.1 FM

Subbing for Romain's Mixed-Up Class classical music show. I do this about once a year and it's always a treat for me.

Highlights this time around: The Jon Anderson track (contrasting with the John Adams original) ... the Rebecca Clarke story ... and the two Bach pieces. I'm hoping to round out the day with the Del Sol Quartet, a Bay Area string quartet. Their recent CD Tear highlights 20th-Century composers of the Americas (including Latin America); great stuff.

Random side note: This is the first time I ever "pre-programmed" a show rather than choosing, on the fly, from an available pool of music.
