Classical Discoveries

Sep 7, 2020 7:00 AM – 9:00 AM

With Marvin Rosen

Music that is mostly neglected by other radio stations with the focus on music from 1950 to present with an emphasis on living composers from all over the world including women. Also included are lesser known selections of music written before 1750.

Each program is archived on my website for 2 weeks. No warhorses are ever aired on this program.
