Composers Datebook , hosted by John Zech, is a daily two-minute program designed to inform, engage, and entertain listeners with timely information about composers of the past and present. Each program notes significant or intriguing musical events involving composers of the past and present—with appropriate and accessible music related to each.
This five-minute radio gem is a listener favorite. Listeners across the country tune in each day as host Garrison Keillor (or a guest host) recounts the highlights of that day in history and reads a short poem or two.
The second largest opera company in North America, San Francisco Opera has been a leader among international opera companies for nine decades. The radio series brings these world-class performances to the airwaves, along with the occasional historic performance, with hosts Elaine Warner and Dianne Nicolini. Radio broadcasts are distributed by WFMT Chicago.
