Spare Air: a radio tryout

During the University of Richmond’s summer break, WDCE-FM has some spare air, two hours of which I propose to fill with a different take on classical radio programming – some contemporary or “alt-classical” pieces, some early music, some folk and traditional music, some music that defies classification. This evening we’ll see how it works. After that . . .
stay tuned.
