Basically, Keepin’ it Classy is the best show on WUOG or the world. I play classical music old and new, from Bach to Bartok, from Grieg to Glass, and from Schubert to Shostakovich. But why don’t I just listen to NPR, you say? They play those composers, right? Yes, but NPR is one of the culprits of the main problem with classical music today, and that’s the “greatest hits” phenomenon. NPR always plays selections or excerpts of a piece, and disregards all the rest of the piece as unimportant. Yes, we all know and love “Ode to Joy,” but it makes no sense at all without the context of the rest of the symphony. It’s like reading one chapter of a book or watching one scene of a movie. On Keepin’ it Classy, not only do I always play the entire work, but I tell you why a piece is important and what makes it good, as well as give interesting historical facts. So tune in every Tuesday from 3:30-5:00 to hear the only classical music show that truly appreciates classical music and wants you to, too!
