FM Odyssey honors its fallen hero and dear friend, Pete Fornatale, Sunday, May 20th, from 10 to 1 p.m. Pete Fornatale, the legendary NY radio personality for 45 years and one of the pioneers of free-form progressive radio, was the inspiration behind Fred Migliore's dream to start FM Odyssey 21 years ago on WFIT.
For the past 17 years, Fred and Pete were close friends, working with one another on many occasions to produce their radio shows, Pete's Mixed Bag and Fred's FM Odyssey.
Join us Monday, May 14th at 10:00 p.m. for a special live studio session with The Steve Nelson Trio. The band is led by guitarist Steve Nelson, with Devin Starks on bass and Francesco Ciniglio on drums. These highly talented young, up-and-coming artists will be playing both original music and standards.
WFIT's Music at Dusk, with host Sonny Marble, has been on the air since 1975. This show features primarily classical music of the baroque, classical, romantic, and contemporary eras. Listeners will be surprised to hear some familiar tunes they may not have realized were originally classical pieces, and informed by Sonny's wealth of knowledge on the history of classical music.
