Mozart's Attic Host

Originally from central Massachusetts, Jay has called the Space Coast home for more than 30 years. He began his association with WFIT in the late '90s as a dumpster diver for office furniture in response to a broadcast plea for a new chair from a frustrated disc jockey. (WFIT has come a long way since.)

Soon he was answering phones during fund drives, doing other odd tasks about the station, and later taking on the job of sending out thank-you gifts and premiums to new and renewing members.

Tune in for Mozart's Attic Thursday nights from 10 pm until midnight.

One of the last of the Romantics, Sergei Rachmaninoff remains among the most popular of the 20th-century Russian composers.

We're going to focus on music of the 20th century this week.

Unrequited love, jealousy, drugs, dreams of murder and witchcraft: it sounds like the plot of some gothic opera.

But it's not, it's the aptly-named Symphonie Fantastique of Hector Berlioz -- and the story behind the story is just as fantastic. We'll unravel both of them in this week's program.

Leo Delibes is almost forgotten today, but he was well-known as a composer of comic operas and ballets in the days of the Second Empire in Paris -- perhaps a bit overshadowed by his contemporary, Jacques Offenbach. We'll look at his ballet, Coppelia on Mozart's Attic this Thursday night. It's a rollicking score with folk dances from the four corners of Europe, all brought to a light and lively  production for the Parisian stage.
