With the coming of the 20th century, all the rules of music went out the window. Composers were free to do pretty much what they wanted, and if someone said, "Hey, you can't do that," They were ignored.

Music went in as many directions as there were people writing it. Some went retro, others pushed the envelope of what even constituted music, and others chose routes somewhere in between.

We've got a dozen works this week, none bearing any resemblance to the others, in a program that just barely scratches the surface of the variety of the last century. There's bound to be something you'll like in the attic this week -- and maybe something you won't. But everything's short. Them's the chances. Check it out.

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.)
