Morning Classics on WVTF

Monday through Friday, 9:00am-noon on WVTF.

The "classics" on WVTF covers a huge swath of chronological and artistic territory, from the plainchant of the Middle Ages to the bluesy, frenetic big-city rhythms of Leonard Bernstein, to show tunes and movie scores. Steve Brown, Cara Ellen Modisett, and Kevin Sanders play all the big hits that you love, but they also search out and present lesser-known pieces that'll make you say, "I'm glad I got the chance to hear that!" Besides the music, you'll get interesting background about the music and the musicians, with the occasional pithy observation about life in our part of the world as well as news updates, traffic and weather information. It's a mix that makes Afternoon Classics on WVTF a must-listen part of your daily routine.
