Mozart's Attic 10:00 pm Thursday 11/20

Arturo Toscanini

This week brings us to Number Eight in the cycle of the nine Beethoven symphonies recorded by Arturo Toscanini and the NBC Symphony for the newfangled high fidelity phonograph records six decades ago.

Also scheduled are some dances from Tudor England, baroque music from Bach and Monteverdi, a concerto by Mozart, some stage music by Schubert, and some Shostakovich and Stravinsky.

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.)
